Weekly Comic Review for 4/17/13
Yes, I’m actually reviewing last week’s comics before the new ones come out. 🙂
Bloodshot #10 – Harbinger Wars – Bloodshot and his new troop fight their way to a safehouse to hold them over. During all this, we get some interesting character interaction. And guess who comes to visit? Harada. This can’t be good.
Green Hornet Legacy #35 – I think I missed an issue because I seem to be in the middle of something but at least I know how they are handling 2 Green Hornet titles. Britt is back and uses his brains to stop the bad guys tho his former sidekick still wants to kill the bad guys. Needless to say, Britt doesn’t approve. Where do things go from here? Only time will tell as the Green Hornet mask is left behind.
Green Lantern: New Guardians #19 – Wrath of the First Lantern part 11 – For a change, we don’t have to deal with the First Lantern. Instead, Kyle, Sinestro, and Simon fight over the white lantern ring in an attempt to gave Korugar. It doesn’t go well and Sinestro takes off with the yellow lantern.
He-Man and the Masters of the Universe #1 – It looks like the last one was a mini-series. We pick up with everyone back to normal and there is a funeral for the Sorceress. Just as events end, Hordak’s daughter attacks Eternos. The only problem is that she ends up being Adora. (An Adora with a very Susan Powter haircut.)
JSA Liberty Files: The Whistling Skull #5 of 6 – The story progresses more as the Skull and his partner escape the Nazi circus and get patched up. Meanwhile, flashbacks reveal more about the Whistling Skull’s origin. At least this issue was better than past ones.
Justice League of America’s Vibe #3 – It’s Vibe vs Kid Flash as he is misled by Amanda Waller and crew. It turns out that Vibe’s vibrations have an odd mix with Kid Flash’s which shorts out systems back at ARGUS. This allows Gypsy to escape. using her illusion powers.
Legion of Super-Heroes #19 – Mon-El and his crew fight a very Kibry-esque Emerald Empress. The rest of the Legion deals with the oncoming attack of the Fatal Five. The book is really going downhill.
Nightwing #19 – Dick gets settled into his new home of Chicago while a new villain, the Prankster, starts his rounds. It looks like he’s lost all his money with the destruction of Amusement Mile.
X-Men Legacy #9 – Legion starts taking matters into his own hands as he tells a story to Blindfold on their date on the moon. It ends up he gets a view of the future about a hero living on the Moon named Aarkus who will try to take out all the mutants. To save mutants, he takes him out of the game ahead of time. Obviously, this doesn’t go over well. The book started out interesting but all the gooshy stuff between David and Ruth is boring and Legion’s recent turns in personality make the book a lot less interesting. I think I’ll be dropping this one.
It’s another mediocre week. I hate those because it’s harder to pick the top 3. That being said, I think I’m going to go with Bloodshot, Green Lantern: New Guardians, and Nightwing.
