All-New All-Different Avengers #1

All-New, All-Different Avengers #1 — Writer: Mark Waid;  Art: Adam Kubert;  Colors: Sonia Oback Uncanny Avengers #2 — Writer: Gerry Duggan;  Art: Ryan Stegman;  Colors: Richard Isanove As Marvel continues its relaunch rollout, A-N A-D Avengers is definitely the star of the week: Mark Waid brings clever plotting, deft characterization and an ability to cut right to the heart of a book’s strengths, and teaming him with a Kubert adds a visual panache that makes it even better. Wisely, this first issue doesn’t try to introduce everyone; it focuses on Sam Wilson/Captain America and Tony Stark, with the Miles Morales … Continue reading

Twilight Children #1

Marvel continues their new-issue rollout with seven first issues this week, plus three Secret Wars conclusions, some DC books, six indy debuts and the usual suspects. Let’s look: The New Avengers #1 — Writer: Al Ewing;  Art: Gerardo Sandoval;  Colors: Dono Sanchez Almara The Uncanny Avengers #1 — Writer: Gerry Duggan;  Art: Ryan Stegman;  Colors: Richard Isanove A couple of Avengers beginnings: New Avengers has a team run and financed by Robert DeCosta/Sunspot; he’s the new head of A.I.M.

Harley Quinn Road Trip Special #1

Eleven Secret Wars tie-ins this week, but the good news is that seven of them are conclusions; there’s a growing light at the end of Jonathan Hickman’s three-year-old tunnel.  Let’s look at all of them one at a time: Secret Wars: A-Force #4 (of 5) — Writers: Marguerite Bennett and G. Willow Wilson;  Pencils: Jorge Molina;  Inks: Craig Yeung and Walden Wong;  Colors: Laura Martin This tryout/preview for one of Marvel’s new relaunch titles has been decent enough, with sharp character interaction among a diverse, interesting cast. Its momentum gets spoiled here through no fault of its own: the climactic … Continue reading
