Weekly comic pulls are making a comeback as distributors get back to work, and we, at BNP, are ready with the new reviews. So, without further ado…
Here’s what we reviewed in comics this week that you might want to check out:
Avengers #33 is the start of a very promising new arc and as a single issue, it’s one of the best I’ve read in a long time. For the reader and (to an even bigger extent) the Avengers, Moon Knight is kind of treated like the crazy guy that everyone ignores and underestimates. That’s a mistake that everyone will come to regret.
Justice League #45
What I liked about it from a character perspective was that it allowed everyone to get out their frustrations about everyone else. Everyone on Earth is harboring some type of feelings toward people, but the Spectre’s possession made the Justice League release all of that to their teammates, fueling the fight. If you ever wanted to see Batman called out for being so secretive and kind of a dick… this might be a comic you want to buy.
The Low, Low Woods #5
The story follows El and Vee as they wake up in a movie theater almost certain that they are missing a chunk of their memory. They then have to navigate the multitude of things that could mean and how they can figure out what exactly happened to them. In their pursuit of that, the eerie and unsettling nature of their town Shudder-To-Think unfolds before our eyes. There are witches, men with no skin, women with sinkholes in their stomachs, and a conspiracy covered up by magic. It’s wild.
The Marauders are playing for keeps and that means doing whatever it takes to make sure these weapons are out of their enemy’s hands and never see the light of day again. You know things are serious when even Emma joins the crew to make sure matters are handled. As always, seeing Ms. Frost in action is a treat and we get some classic Emma Frost battle tactics. If looks could kill, Emma’s body count must be through the roof. Stefano Caselli’s artwork and pages show the white queen at her best.
Suicide Squad #5
Jog specifically is someone I’ve taken a liking to since the first issue. He’s a speedster who’s lazy, but like not in the way that The Flash relies on his speed so he slips up in other areas. Jog is focused, but when he’s not running, he’s kinda just chillin’ while eating some chips or taking a nap. He’s also got a bit of a belly. And he’s black.
