I was able to read quite a few comics this week. I previously posted about Edge of Venomverse (https://www.thefresnerd.com/home/2017/6/29/edge-of-venomverse-1-review) and Secret Weapons (https://www.thefresnerd.com/home/2017/6/28/secret-weapons-1-review).
Jean Grey #3 - After being visited by the Phoenix, Jean is continuing her journey to seek out other hosts of the Phoenix, this time heading underwater to spend some time with Namor. I'm really enjoying this series, and seeing the young Jean Grey show her powers.
Mighty Captain Marvel #6 - I love Captain Marvel. I really do. But the last couple of issues have been tedious, and Secret Empire is largely to blame. Obviously they can't ignore the fact that Captain Marvel is trapped in space unable to get past Earth's shield, but the last couple of issues feel like not much is happening. As much as I'm enjoying Secret Empire I really am looking forward to the series wrapping up, or at least the shield coming down so Captain Marvel can do something other than worry about the Chitauri wave.
Batwoman - I've been catching up on the New 52 release of Batwoman lately. Recently I've been in volumes three through five. Batwoman has been enlisted to help unmask Batman! This really was a fascinating tale, as the government blackmails her and her family. Unfortunately, the writers and artists changed right at the last issue. Of course Batman protects his identity, but it felt rushed and very different from the starting issues. I wish I had loved how it ended, but I just don't.
What's on the horizon for this week? New issues of All New Guardians of the Galaxy and some X-Men are due this week. But I'll be spending lots of time reading up on and preparing for San Diego Comic Con as well!
This week we're talking all about "The Unworthy Thor".Read More
