Comics Review Pt. 2: Bet you thought I was done with Marvel

Star Wars #2:

The artwork is still wonderful, but I think this segment really highlights to me how much better Star Wars is on the screen than on the page. There’s a lot of action going on and it kind of jumped around a bit, which I know is a totally normal thing but damn. Bonus points for Han/Leia banter.

Ms. Marvel #11:

Hooray! Kamala, a bunch of lost teenagers and Lockjaw have come out on top. Bonus awesome points to Kamala calling the Inventor a bird, reaching out for help, and gyros for heroes! Seriously though, Ms. Marvel has been consistently great–I find myself laughing out loud, cheering, and saying “Fuck yeah, Kamala!” at least once an issue.

Hawkeye #21:

Oh, Clint. Way to put your foot in your mouth before the first page is even half over. Nice brotherly talk there. The fight scene was great (pay attention, Star Wars!), but the ending. Not futzing cool, bro. Speaking of ending, I’m so sad that there’s only one issue left of the Fraction/Aja/Hollingsworth run because everything about this series has been perfection.

Thor #4:

Thor and Odinson fight! And then Thor kisses Odinson–so I’m thinking Thor is definitely not Odinson’s mother. Otherwise…awkward. Epically awkward. Odinson did graciously hand over the title of Thor and agreed that she is worthy of Mjölnir, so hopefully that’s the end to that particular bit of friction.

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #1-2:

What the hell? So that was interesting. It’s cute, the artwork is adorable, and there’s at least one pun a page. If that’s your thing, you need to check out Squirrel Girl. So far I am digging the tiny text at the bottom of each page, the starring section and the enemy cards from Deadpool. I’ll probably pick up #3 to see if it’ll hook me, but this isn’t going to be added to the pull list just yet.
