For some reason, it took me four attempts to correctly type the word "Reviews" into the title. There is probably some Freudian reason for that. All Marvel this week!
All-New All-Different Avengers #7
This seems to be heading into the new crossover territory, with their attention being drawn to the whole Pleasant Hill problem. The bit where Maria Hill and Shield decided to "rehabilitate" supervillains by brainwashing them and having them become fine upstanding zombies in an adorable little prison...er...town. Nothing could POSSIBLY go wrong!
Of course it has, and some of my favorite Avengers are heading out to see what the heck is going on. Also, The Vision apologizes to Kamala for betraying them, by giving her tapes of all the previous Avenger deeds of derring-do, which is rather sweet, actually.
So, they are all on a Quinjet with Agent Hill, when they run into some OTHER Avenger types, who are also accompanied by Agent Hill. They start to fight, because that is the sort of thing that Marvel Heroes do, and for some reason, they all end up brain-washed in the town.
You have piqued my interest, Marvel!
I would much rather read this than the new Civil War, because in so many ways I am STILL furious about the disaster that was the original Civil War, which caused me to dump pretty much all of my Marvel books way back when. It is only recently, due to the grimness and depression and futility at DC that I have been slithering back to the Marvel side. Also, books like Loki: Agent of Asgard, Young Avengers, Angela, Thor, Ms. Marvel, Hellcat, She-Hulk, Squirrel Girl and others which are quirky and FUN helped a lot.
Angela: Queen of Hel #6
And speaking of Angela, it was literate, it was odd, and I loved it. So naturally, they are cancelling it. Through a bit of clever meta-text, we learn that this is the penultimate issue, and it will end next month, which just depresses the HECK out of me. The art was gorgeous, the dialogue was clever as all get out and heck...it was weird, but oddly engrossing.
Where will I get my Leah fix now? Not to mention Thori.
Oh, and Angela goes to Ikea, and ends up fighting Thor, and mean people are getting poetically killed, and it all has to do with Faust. Great stuff.
Patsy Walker, aka Hellcat #4
Patsy is on her way to meet with Jennifer and Hedy, to try and get her rights to her own comics back but runs into a little problem with Casiolena, who is no Enchantress, but does her Asgardian best to round up some villainous minions. Except for the most part, her minions just want to pay off their student loans. Also Brunnhilde shows up which is always nice.
It's a hoot as always.
Totally Awesome Hulk #4
So, Amadeus has been taken prisoner by the Queen of the Monsters, and is enjoying it far too much. She-Hulk, and his sister are doing their best to rescue him, but all the previously captured monsters are let loose, and really, most of them are pretty nice little monsters except for the control patches. Also we learn how Amadeus became the Hulk, in the first place, no thanks to Tony incidentally!
Again, an odd but hilarious little book.
A pretty darned good week actually!
