YESSSSS!
TONY STARK IRON MAN #1 ((Regular Cover)) - Marvel Comics - 2018 - 1st Printing - DanSlottStark1,ValerioSchitiStark1

Look, if you thought I was in this for Stark and his tech, well, yeah, sure, at first.   Then when I realized he'd brought in Ultron's creation, Jocasta, to be the robot ethicist.

 

It's a fun series, especially watching Jocasta teach people to treat robots like people, and her telling every robotic creation with/approaching self-awareness that they didn't have to throw themselves into danger if they didn't want to.

 

I have a feeling that she'll put a wrench in many of Stark's plans, but she also stole the show for me.   Debating buying all of this, along with a Bumblebee one-shot I missed in a week or so when the Bee issue goes half-off.

Nope
Marvel Knights #1 - Chuck Dixon,Klaus Janson,Eduardo Barreto

I found this hard to get into or invested in.   Neither storyline nor art impressed me that much, and I was glad I had gotten it for free.

Continues to be lovely
Spider-Gwen: Ghost-Spider (2018-) #4 - Seanan McGuire,Rosi Kampe,Bengal

I notice there's another writer on this, which makes sense.   I didn't check, but the writing did feel different. 

 

Still, a lovely take on the character. I refuse to indulge Marvel in their events, so I was a bit lost on the details, but still felt the rough patch Gwen was going through and was fed enough information to get the general idea. 

 

What she had to do in the end was so hard, and also so kind.   So much like her to take on that kindness when no one else thought of it. 

 

I love Spider-Gwen so, so much!

I really enjoyed this take on DD's lovelife
Man Without Fear (2019) #2 (of 5) - Jed MacKay,Stefano Landini,Kyle Hotz

It was told in a roundabout way that I didn't quite get at first.   The confusion soon lifted: this issue was devoted to what loving Murdock can do, and Matt's guilt about his ex-girlfriends who tend to be either dead now or mad.   

 

It was actually more enjoyable than the first issue on that level, but maddening because I really don't think the art fits this series.   The storyline also has issues - like confusing the reader to show Matt's own confusion. 

 

I do like how he comes clean to Blindspot, making this not only about Matt's broken love life.   I think it would be too brutal on one level and too sappy on another if it was only about his romances.   

 

Blindspot was Daredevil's protege, and after the scenes in this comic, I wonder if he'll take over in the new series, even though Murdock told him not to, or he'd end up as beaten down and broken as Murdock is now.

Okay
Batman '66 #64 - Jeff Parker,Jesse Hamm

I apparently am not a fan of Batman '66.   It mimics old time Batman, or maybe it's tied into the show? 

 

I was also baffled by the fact that only this issue was on Comixology Unlimited.   Why start with a storyline in the middle of the series, especially when Poison Ivy isn't starring in a movie or huge in a way that I'm aware of?

 

Regardless, I felt it was flat: no real depth, and I'm used to that in Batman comics.  I was unimpressed.   I probably won't delve more into this continuity as far as Batman goes.
