Okay
Cloak And Dagger (2018) #1 (of 6) - Dennis Hopeless,David Messina,Mahmud Asrar

Nothing earth shattering, at least not yet, so I won't be continuing with this.  I think I got this for free via Marvel because they're promoting the show; all I know is I redeemed my comics today and this showed up. 

 

The art is average, and so is the storyline.   Add to that I prefer ongoing series to mini-series and I see no reason to continue.

Loving this series
Champions (2016-) #22 - Jim Zub,Kevin Libranda,Stefano Caselli

But I don't really care about The Hulk's new look, or Iron Heart's new look.   That felt like a really forced scene, too, but it got better once they got a mission: to help a small African village with water issues, if I'm remembering correctly. 

 

Very liberal, very open to diversity, this series talks about a lot of real world issues, couching them in fictional places and people to not target any one country or people in particular.   But I like that it does tackle real world issues with a good deal of thought given as to how to do so.

DD on a horse
Daredevil (2015-) #605 - Charles Soule,Mike Henderson,Chris Sprouse

The cover pretty much says it all.   Great addition to the storyline with both The Hand and Wilson Fisk being mayor, which I suspect will be a much longer storyline. 

 

Still loving what Soule is doing with everything right now.

Just ridiculous
Cosmic Ghost Rider (2018) #1 (of 5) - Donny Cates,Dylan Burnett,Geoff Shaw

So I'm thinking about Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. I just saw it, and it was... ridiculous.   Like way dumber than this comic, but I was rolling my eyes throughout a good chunk of that movie. Which is how I react to saying, thinking about, or typing out the conceit of this mini-series/character: The Punisher is the Ghost Rider.   And also has the Power Cosmic at the same time.   

 

Except the people were less stupid than in Fallen Kingdom.   (Except for one character, who remains awesome which is why I got their Funko after seeing the movie.)  And this kinda made a little more sense than that?

 

Willing to see where it's going, but I remain convinced that what, no, you don't need all that shit in one body.   And given they deal with it in that so much power drives Frank Castle nuts, but... 

 

Man, no, this was the most Gary Stu I've seen in a while as far as stuffing power into someone who wasn't meant to have this kind of power.   I'll be even more honest: I like Castle because he's a man with a gun, willpower, an insanely high pain tolerance and no powers in a super-powered world.  This kinda strips that away by giving him All The Power.   Him in the War Machine armor made more sense as he treated the suit as a machine to be used, which it is at it's most simplistic.   It was another weapon in his arsenal, another gun to be used, and he was still he same within the armor.   The weapon made his job easier, but wasn't necessary, and he could go back to being a guy without the armor if needed. 

 

The powers feel... weird.   Weird enough to strip one star.   Still, this makes sense as far it goes, and as much as I hate the conceit, I really like the way this issue was done.  

 

So I'll give it an issue or two and drop it if I don't like it.

Captain Marvel, Volume 1: Higher, Further, Faster, More

This is yet another graphic novel that I picked up off of Amazon Prime on an impulse. I saw Avengers Infinity War not too long ago. I had heard that the next Avengers movie will feature Captain Marvel and early next year she will get her own movie so I wanted to learn more about her. I remember the Male Captain Marvel from the seventies but this is a whole new character.

 

Captain Marvel, Volume 1 is written by Kelly Sue DeConnick with art by David Lopez. This book includes issues 1 through 6 of the comic series and one self contained story. The tale begins with Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) finding an alien trapped in a capsule heading to earth. She saves the alien and then returns him to it's home world. 

 

 Once she arrives Captain Marvel discovers that the alien's planet is in danger and in conflict with the Galactic Alliance and the Spartax. She decides to stay and help the alien race but this will set off a chain of events that could alter all of the Marvel Universe and put her at odds with The Avengers. This book also includes appearances from The Guardians Of The Galaxy and Iron Man.

 

My main complaint about this book was that since I didn't know much about this character I was wanting a little orgin story but I didn't get it. Even though it started with a first issue it felt like I was starting a story in the middle. I realize that this is how the Marvel comics universe works, everything is connected and if you don't know anything about the universe you may be a little lost but I still would have liked a better starting point.

 

This is an entertaining book though.The characters were interesting,  the art was decent, the story was ok but nothing extraordinary. The book held my interest but wasn't as good as The Totally Awesome Hulk which I read not too long ago. There was a lot of potential in this book though, I would read more if I got the chance and I'm now looking forward to the upcoming movie.
