Amazing Spider-Man # 85– This issue wraps up Ben Reilly’s scuffle with Doctor Octopus and it’s such a joy to see Ben get a much-needed win as Spider-Man; I also enjoy how this issue helps set the seeds of mistrust within The Beyond Corporation so I know that somewhere done the line we’ll get a confrontation between Ben and the latter but for now, this current issue of ASM
is an explosive read thanks again to the strong efforts of Cody Ziglar and Paco Medina.
Daredevil: Woman Without Fear # 1– Chip Zdarsky brought a lot of great factors to his Daredevil run, one of those things was Elektra taking over the mantle of Daredevil while Matt Murdock was in prison so this series, which is a continuation of Zdarsky’s run, gives Eletrka an even bigger platform as she continues to embrace the ideologies of being Daredevil while trying her best to shake off her past as an assassin. The amazing pacing and action that’s on display would put the cinematic version of “Black Widow” to shame, but I should point out that Zdarsky isn’t trying to reinvent anything that Frank Miller did when he handled Elektra but instead giving longtime DD fans something fresh and edgy that will remind readers everywhere how interesting Elektra is.
Justice League Vs. The Legion Of Super-Heroes # 1– I like to make a confession- I actually had such high hopes for this series which brings two of DC’s most iconic teams together, but with Brian Michael Bendis steering this ship, I had to learn the hard way that having high hopes can indeed be a bad thing which in the end, leaves you disappointed. Bendis’ constant use of heavy dialogue takes everything that seemed cool about this concept then brings it to a halt because I feel if he had just changed up his writing process then it could have been a hit; The only bright spot that this series has going for itself is the artwork, provided by Scott Godlewski, brings an energetic feel that makes every page feel vibrant. If you read the first issue and want to see what happens next, then more power to you, but if Bendis’ DC work leaves you feeling disheartened, then I would advise you to save your money and wait for something better to come along. You’ll feel good about yourself in the end.
Well, that’s it for me this week. Thanks for sticking around and I will see you all next time.
