Guardians-of-the-Galaxy-9-2016

Comics Daily – Guardians of the Galaxy No. 9

Comics Daily – Guardians of the Galaxy No. 9 – I don’t know what is going on in space. At least not in Marvel space. There needs to be one comic where all of this stuff is rooted. The Kree are no more. Again. The Black Vortex did it. But I thought the Annihilation Wave…

Comics Daily – 52 No. 10

Comics Daily – 52 No. 10 – Black Adam is one of my favorite DC characters. I admit. I know very little about him. Except, much like Namor, he is an asshole that doesn’t take shit. In 52 he is creating a coalition. A collection of powered people and countries to oppose America. He is…

Comics Daily – Lazarus No. 1

Comics Daily – Lazarus No. 1 – We have Eve also named or titled “Lazarus” because it seems like she has the ability to return from the dead. She is part of “The Family” (I think) who seem to be the authority of whatever kind of post-apocalypse this story is in. At the beginning of…

Darth_Vader_Vol_1_21

Comics Daily – Darth Vader No. 21

Comics Daily – Darth Vader No. 21 – I’ve said it already, but I am going to repeat myself, Darth Vader has the best group of character of all these Star Wars comics. When I say that I am referring to Doctor Aphra, 000, and BT-1. They’re the triple threat that makes a comic about…

Comics Daily – Civil War 2 No. 1

Comics Daily – Civil War 2 No. 1 – So. Spoilers. On the one hand, good for you getting me to engage with this story by doing what I didn’t expect. You killed War Machine. I kind of thought he’d die in the Civil War movie. I wasn’t expecting him to die in the Civil…

TBOLTS2016002_DC11_1

Comics Daily – Thunderbolts No. 2

Comics Daily – Thunderbolts No. 2 – I think this comic is secretly being drawn by Rob Liefeld. Actually, it is a guy by the name of Jon Malin. It is very 90’s Image, which I don’t usually like, but I am digging it here. It seems like the Thunderbolts are all Winter Solider sidekicks….

Mockingbird_Vol_1_3

Comics Daily – Mockingbird No. 3

Comics Daily – Mockingbird No. 3 – Between Weirdworld, Star Wars, and now Mockingbird, there is a lot of girl power in the comic books I read.

Star_Wars_19

Comics Daily – Star Wars No. 19

Comics Daily – Star Wars No. 19 – I like the interaction between Princess Leia and Sana Starros. They’re the fast friends they should be. And this story goes a lot way to making that so. The pair trapped in a Rebel prison when a mysterious figure takes control so he can do what Leia…

Comics Daily – All New All Different Avengers No. 10

Comics Daily – All New All Different Avengers No. 10 – This has been the best issue yet. The others have been okay. The series has been getting better. This one was pretty rad. Finally, I am digging this poor Tony Stark thing. Even poor he manages to get a space ship to go into…

Comics Daily – DC Universe Rebirth No. 1

Comics Daily – DC Universe Rebirth No. 1 – This is the first DC comic I’ve read in a long time that has felt like a DC comic. What does that mean? Since New 52 it has felt like the people over at DC have been trying to make old Image comics with DC characters….

Comics Daily – The Fade Out No. 1

Comics Daily – The Fade Out No. 1 – More Ed Brubaker. And this time Sean Philips is with him. I’ve read the two of them on Incognito and Criminal. Both crime/mystery/thrillers.

Velvet_14-1

Comics Daily – Velvet No. 14

Comics Daily – Velvet No. 14 – Velvet tranqs President Nixon after using blackmail of Ford with a Soviet spy prostitute. Uh huh. Wheels are spinning within wheels, which is why I am confused. Part of the problem is a lot of these characters are white guys in suits. They’re not actors. So I can’t…

Comics Daily – Chilling Adventures of Sabrina No. 5

Comics Daily – Standoff Omega No. 1

Comics Daily – Standoff Omega No. 1 – This is a lot of stuff thrown together. A lot of nonsense. This didn’t seem like a story, but an excuse to set up a status quo for the All New All Different Marvel Universe. By the end of this there are at least four new comic…

Comics Daily – All New All Different Avengers No. 9

Comics Daily – All New All Different Avengers No. 9 – This is an Avengers comic that doesn’t feel like the Avengers. It has Iron Man, Captain America, Vision, Jarvis, and now a Wasp, but they’re not quite their same selves. Iron Man is relatively poor. It is Sam Wilson as Cap. Vision is a…

Squadron_Supreme_007_2016_Digital_Zone_Empi

Comics Daily – Squadron Supreme No. 7

Comics Daily – Squadron Supreme No. 7 – This should be Marvel’s The Authority. Hell. It was Marvel’s Authority book when it was a Max title.
