Die, Kitty, Die: Heaven and Hell #3
This is a great character and super fun book. I wish one of the Big Two would sign these creators up to do a mainstream book, something fun, silly, meta, and sexy. Titans? Powergirl? She-Hulk?
That said, I wish this series was coming out monthly as well!
The Magic Order
Mark Millar signed some sort of deal with Netflix, I guess. The end result is comics, which are things I like. This is about a group of wizards practicing magic in our world, beyond the veil of reality, or some such. When this series os over, I will definitely want to go back and read it again, to pick up on all the stuff I am sure I missed.
But right now, this gets a WOW!
More often than not I like Millar, and I really like Albuquerque. This was has all the bombast of a Millar title, and I am expecting some sort of twist to come and muck it up. All that said, this gets a WOW!
Archie 1941 #3
What makes this most compelling is what make Archie Andrews still compelling, the characters remain the same. This series is not about the funny or the klutzy, it’s dark, but not too dark, and well-written.
This one gets a WOW!
I always forget about the Bendis Superman books until they show up in my pull, and then I smile happily.
I mean, if you had asked me awhile back if I would ever be excited about Superman books….
This one gets a WOW! Love the use of many different characters, and love how good an egg Supes is.
Die Kitty Die: Cathouse of Horror
I wish this was a series that came out regularly. I wish 4 issues didn’t drop on the same day. I wish one of these artists (Parent, Ruiz, Legace) did a fun teen superhero book (ala Perez+Wolfman Titans, or Byrne+Claremont X-Men). This was a really one-shot, as they all are.
Heroes in Crisis #2
When this series is over, will I re-read it and recall this issue as being chock-full of clues and Easter eggs? Maybe.
As it stands, as a stand-along issue, i have to give it a WOE! The narrative was disjointed, I didn’t understand why Harley switched costumes, did the kissing character die? Did I miss that last bit in issue 1? Not everything needs to be spelled out, and I don’t mind some questions, like the last, BUT, serialized media works best when each issue works and has an “a-ha!” moment as well as something definitely leaving one wanting more. This did not.
I think #5 is the finasle/ final issue, which is a real shame, because this alt-Archieverse horror title has been my favorite. The art in this issue in particular really sets the tone, and there is no way this is not getting a WOW from me.
Hit Girl #9
I am really digging this as (presumably) an ongoing. Love the Albuquerque art. This one gets a definite WOW!
I am really digging on this, and with every issue, I like it more and more. Bendis’ Supes is a great character, and I love his use of other DCU characters as well, go Ray Palmer!
This gets a definite WOW!
