I’ve been working my way through some massive stacks of comics. I still have not thought of a good way to review single issues or even good themed batches… so here’s just a jumbled together thing of comics I’ve been reading.
Deadpool Classic (Volume 1)
Deadpool is a character that I’m so intrigued by that I decided to start at the beginning. My comic shop ordered me this volume – it starts with the first appearance of Deadpool and then jumps into Deadpool’s own series that start in the mid-90’s. I had some concerns that maybe I wouldn’t enjoy this because of the older-style art and because they’re comics that are like 20 years old at this point, but that turned out not to be the case. I LOVED this. The stories were interesting and fun, Deadpool was a great amount of ridiculous and jerk, and there were some parts that made me feel really bad for him. My least favorite was the very end, #1 of a Deadpool run in 1997 – the story didn’t hook me in and the newer, cleaner, bolder art seemed cartoonish. In all fairness though, that was only a first issue of a longer run – I need the next volume of Deadpool Classic to see how it turns out. But basically, I ❤ Deadpool.
Inhuman (# 3-7)
The Inhuman series is so easy to get sucked into. I’m all caught up now since issue #7 just came out, and I can’t wait for more. I can’t say too much, because spoilers, but you should pick this up if you’re enjoying Ms. Marvel. I REALLY like Queen Medusa, and that the Avengers frequently make an appearance, and that New Attilan (the home of the Inhumans and new Inhumans alike) is kind of sitting right in the Hudson River. Some really interesting dynamics come from that, and there was a big reveal in the last couple issues, and I can’t wait for #8. And I can’t wait to see what they do with the movie that’s set to come out in 2018.
Borderlands: The Fall of Fyrestone #3
Play Borderlands, and read all the comics. If you like the games even a little, the comics are a HUGELY awesome thing. This most recent one is no exception.
Nailbiter (# 3-5)
Nailbiter is some messed up shit. It’s still fall-time, which makes it the perfect time to get into this series. There are some wonderful scary, suspenseful pages and the story is moving along surprisingly quickly. I finally added this to my pull list, because I missed issue #6 and need to get it on comiXology so that I can continue on with the series. Don’t want to risk that happening again.
Ms. Marvel # 9 (not pictured)
Kamala finds out more about her origins and meets some new potential allies. Seriously, this series is the epitome of a good time.
So yeah… that’s a lot here. And I have more trades and single issues sitting on my coffee table, just beckoning to me…
