So So Reviews
I only got three books this week, and they were... okay, but nothing knocked my socks off. Unlike yesterday, today I actually AM baking and wrapping presents!
This was decent, although I can't help wondering if I missed something. Stephen is being driven around town by the evil Eye of the now dead Watcher, who is encouraging murder and mayhem for some reason. Wong is flying around in a biplane with whatshername, and Mordo is also looking for Strange... not to mention Dormammu.
It gets a bit hectic and even a tad disjointed, but the art as always is superb. It's a good issue... but not an amazing issue.
I am actually getting a bit bored with the spat between Patsy and Black Cat, mainly because I still just can't buy Felicia as a murderous Kingpin, especially when her plots are so... banal. She and her little gang of Bad Girls are really just messing with Patsy and her crew for the hell of it, as far s I can see.
The bit with them stuffed in the magic bag and Jubilee being really hungry was amusing, and again, it was a perfectly fine issue, but for me, there were no real laugh-out- loud moments. But still not bad.
Captain Marvel #1
So... after all the pain and idiocy of the never-ending :Civil War II, :Carol just considered to be a great hero. She is talking to a shrink, has bad dreams about Iron Man, and Spider Woman is still passed, but her own responsibility seems to have been swept under a rug by the powers that be, which is apparently... Alpha Flight?
I have been trying NOT to read as much of Civil War as possible, so I assume there are a lot of things that I (thankfully) don't know about... but still! I don't really like Carol all that much anyway, so I doubt that I will continue with this book.
So...a very small and average week. But hey... it's almost Christmas!
