Here’s what we reviewed in comics this week that you might want to check out:
Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy #6
This comic is a great display of an emotional battle that comes with facing the troubles within yourself and how that translates with your relationships towards other people. It’s no doubt that Harley loves Red. She was willing to drop everything for her so I could imagine how heartbreaking it must be to see a reflection of your best friend calling you out and distort your intentions.
The most striking thing to me about Alienated, the latest sci-fi series from Boom! Studios, is its incredible structure: the pacing of parallel narratives and dialogs, the use of principle colors, the layered construction of each page, the very cadence of the story itself. From the very first page of the comic, Alienated draws you into the lives of its three leading characters: Samuel, Samantha, and Samir.
For me, it’s about the small moments that happened throughout this bout. Thor ridding himself of the power cosmic to show Beta Ray that he’s not being controlled by Galactus; so powerful, Bill catching the hammer before it smashes his face to smithereens; eye opening, and Thor’s warning that resulted in a broken Beta Ray in more ways than one; sobering.
Jessica Jones: Blindspot #3
Jones teams up with Elsa, who also miraculously survived a shot to the head. Oh, and just before the execution attempt, Elsa was packing up weapons to go kill some thangs in the Hudson and well, them thangs ain’t stopping their human feeding habits, because ol girl caught the almost fade. Jones still has questions that need answering so she has to roll out with Bloodstone.
Shots are fired and old wounds are dug up, resulting in Mystique dropping her cordial demeanor that was bound to fade and letting the enemies turned partners know that she’s done with the cooperation until they bring “MY WIFE BACK”!!
