Fantastic Four: Life Story # 2– As this series enters the 1970s, this story gets some deep and heartbreaking narration from none other than Susan Richards herself as she details the inner workings of her marriage to Reed and I applaud the approach that Mark Russell took with his writing for this issue because he really brought to the forefront a marriage that’s on the brink of splitting up and not only he made it very realistic but added in the drama for great effect. The ever-looming threat of Galactus’ arrival is still pi9cking up steam and the ending (**NO SPOILERS**) may surprise you. While it looks like it will take time before Marvel’s first family starts to age, FF: LIfe Story is just a fun yet compelling look into the four individuals that kicked off the Marvel Universe, and watching them change with each decade makes for a great read.
Good Luck # 1– This was a title that did not disappoint me in the least; This series centers on a group of teenagers called The Unfortunates, who are not only the unluckiest group ever but have been tasked with saving the world and making sure reality doesn’t lapse. Love the sci-fi factor and the fact that all the character’s personalities bounce off one another. It’s “Runaways” meets “Fantastic Four (The 2015 movie)”, Good Luck will no doubt be a hit among fans of independent titles and could very well be optioned for a Netflix movie (Ya never know)
Heroes Return # 1– Jason Aaron and Ed McGuinness bring their summer blockbuster “Heroes Reborn” with an all-out battle between The Avengers and The Squadron Supreme and reading this made me fall in love with comic books all over again because it was nice to read a story full of action and sharp dialogue, not to mention seeing a reality get put back in place, and even though Heroes Reborn and all of the one-shots may have been a huge burden on our wallets, thank god for Heroes Return and giving us an ending that was paid off in full but could be revisited to great effect.
MFKZ # 1– From the beginning to the end, this series is an absolute hit that centers around Angelino and his pal Vinz (Who comes across like Ghost Rider if he was a slacker) doing their best to survive in a roach and crime-infested city called DMC (Dark Meat City) which is a very exaggerated version of Los Angeles, and having been born and raised in L.A. I can see the contrast between the city in this series and L.A. itself; MFKZ is weird, outlandish, and takes pride in showing the readers the surrealism of living in an inner-city……but it’s cool!! And I just found out about the Netflix movie so if you’re a fan of the latter then this comic is for you.
Teen Titans Academy # 4 – The mystery of Red X continues to intensify and with that, this issue puts the spotlight on a group of kids who call themselves The Bat Pack as they try to solve the case of Red X’s true identity. What was really fun about this issue is how the pack found themselves at either a dead-end or in trouble with the senior staff, and to be honest it played out like an old After-School Special than a Teen Titans story, so it’s great that Tim Sheridan thought outside the box for this issue and Steve Lieber’s art worked well with the vision that Sheridan had planned out. A fun read but I would love to see more Titans members and more screen time for Red X.
Well, that’s it for me this week. Thanks for sticking around and I will see you all next time.https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/i-love-comics-blah-blah-blah-50/https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/I-love-comics-logo-600x257.pnghttps://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/I-love-comics-logo-150x64.pngReviews
