Phoenix Resurrection: The Return Of Jean Grey (2017-2018) #1 (of 5) - Leinil Francis Yu,Matt Rosenberg

So, the thing is that people keep trying to redo the Phoenix story, and it's always less impressive to me than the original.   I also don't like Jean Grey much, but I wanted to see if this was any good, and I got it free via the Marvel Insider program.  


I'm holding off on more, because I'm not sure I'll like any of the other comics, but I'm also considering the Hulk one.   I will not be finishing up with this series, however.

Why, Marvel, why
Champions (2016-) #16 - Humberto Ramos,Mark Waid

I'm loving this series, I'm loving what Marvel is doing with Vision and Viv, and Vivian, but... ugh... they're killing all the things I love.   Yeah, that's right, I saw the IDBM for the Avengers movie after Infinity War.  


Yeah, I see that Inhumans, and Vision are being phased out of Fresh Start.  I see it all, Marvel. 


This is heartbreaking, and heartwarming, and I forget what else happened: I was all about Vision, Viv, and Vivian bonding as a family.

Love, love, love!
Lockjaw (2018-) #1 - Carlos Villas,Daniel Kibblesmith,Ed McGuinness

This is... amazing.   Like you'd think, oh, Lockjaw, lol, he's getting his whole series?   But you'd be wrong.   Lockjaw is amazing.   



And it's not just that he's adorable.  



He teleports.   He TELEPORTS, YES!


And while this is all amazing, there's more.   Lockjaw is looking for his siblings, and he ends up taking D-Man along in the most hilarious way possible. 



D-Man happens to have just split from his boyfriend, no one remembers him, and he's feeling down in general.  


Y'know, until he touches Lockjaw when he's teleporting, gets taken along for the ride - and meets Ka-Zar, a half naked, ripped dude who pals around with his sabertooth tiger.   And D-Man's reaction is pretty much, 'thank you, best day ever!'   We spend a lot of time with D-Man, building up how sucky his life is, only to leave him here. 


This is a limited series, but amazing. 


Also, I was sure the fact that the writer's last name is 'Kibblesmith' was a joke, but apparently not.   That makes this better.

What does the Purple Man want?
Jessica Jones (2016-) #15 - Brian Bendis,Michael Gaydos,David Mack

He wants to be different, good, not to manipulate everyone all the time, he tells Jessica.   Whom he is talking to face-to-face, because he's promised to let Danielle go if she does.   I didn't see a lot of this coming.   I mean, I saw her skepticism coming, but nothing else. 


And now this pits a Purple Man controlled superhero against Jessica, one of the superheroes helping her and Luke Cage stop The Purple Man.  


In the end, it all may not be enough.   I have no doubt he will come back to wreak his own nasty brand of revenge.  Does he want to change?   Maybe, but not enough to do the hard work.  The fact that he thinks Jessica owes him enough to help him on his quest, the fact that he would use her daughter to get her to meet, prove that he only wants this if it's convenient for him.   


I hope they kick him in the dick.   He's an effective and creepy dude.

So, let's talk about the baby, can we?
Jessica Jones (2016-) #14 - Brian Bendis,Michael Gaydos,David Mack

Because when I read that she was taken by the Purple Man, I suspected kidnapped.   Which would be horrifying enough, but, damn, this got far, far darker.   


And it was truly awful.   


But in a way that made me feel so much for Jessica.   Can she save Danielle from the grip of the Purple Man?   Oh, I had no doubt she'd find a way, but I was still tense, that's how well written this was.
