And Even More New Books!
I actually went to the comic book store on Wednesday and READ them in a timely fashion. Not a whole lot of them, but still...!
All-New, All-Different Avengers #11
Did I miss an issue or something? For some reason they are all fighting Annihilus! Thor is holding her own, but Vision is wonky because of no solar power, while the kids are all mining...stuff. Plus Nova is really really cranky.
But not to worry because the big guys know what to do and things happen and explode, and they get back through the rift, except they just happen to leave Spider-Man behind, which is not good.
I do like this book. This is my favorite version of Iron Man at the moment, because he is completely different in most of the other books, and Ms. Marvel is always adorable. So...Good!
Ms Marvel #8
I missed this last week,because I thought it was just one of the million or so Civil War II books on the stands, but it is an actual Ms Marvel book. And now I have some faint inkling of what Civil War II is all about! Some kid named Ulysses can see crimes happening BEFORE they happen, so the "good" guys can foil their nefarious plans before all the loss of life and property damage. Which in theory sounds really good! Certainly Amala is convinced by none other than Captain Marvel, and given her own bunch of overly enthusiastic sidekicks. But the morality of punishing people before they have actually comitted a crime is beginning to gnaw at her, especially when people that she respects, point out the down side to all of this.
I now know that I will not be on Captain Marvel's side in Civil War II!
The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #9
Each issue, I think that there is no way that the writer and artist can possibly out-do themselves...and each month I am wrong. Doreen has been going through quite the wringer trying to get a date, with a bunch of losers. Although that Sentinal has possibilities. But now Mole Man has surfaced, and they talk and stuff, and she agrees that it is horribly impolite to just be dumping toxic waste and dead bodies underground all the time. Natually, Mole Man is charmed. Nay, enamoured. And the old-timey etchings are simply a delight.
This is...a thing of true beauty. And hilarity.
Archie and Mr. Lodge have come to a consensus. No more hanging out at Veronica's house. The installation of the wall, concertina wire, guard tower and attach shark are pretty convincing. So Veronica goes to hang out at Archie's house, and...brings along a few comforts.Also Archie and Betty have a talk.
I still can't believe that I am reading an Archie comic book, much less enjoying the heck out of it, but there we are.
A pretty darned good week!
