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.

Frank goes after Hydra while some of Fury's people go after Frank
The Punisher (2016-) #226 - Stefano Landini,Matthew T. Rosenberg,Clayton Crain

And to be quite, well, frank, I didn't see that ending coming.  I don't think anyone realized he was going after Hydra, though.   So the dynamics changed at the end. 

 

The first part of this comic is Iron Punisher going after Baron Zemo, and the rest is Zemo vs. Punisher vs. Avengers (or former Avengers.)

 

Anyway, it was a fun time all around.   Although I have one question: why does Castle know Hunger Games but not Star Wars?

Wraps up this storyline
Champions (2016-) #21 - Sean Izaakse,Jim Zub,Stefano Caselli

And has the same problem the previous issue did: far, far too heavy handed.  I still love how optimistic and cheerful and helpful this group is, without losing sight of the fact that they have to question what's good and bad and who's good and bad and be willing to change along with their understanding of the world. 

 

Very left leaning, very liberal, but my thing.   So long as they don't shit on Israel like so-called progressives like to do, I'm good with left leaning liberalism.

Great continuation
Deadpool (2018-) #2 - Skottie Young,Nic Klein

I love this series so far.   Deadpool has a weapon that can stop a Celestial on Earth.  But he'll only help if the Avengers hire him, which they won't. 

 

The real question is why are they cool with him not remembering everything after he literally made them barf all over NYC. 

 

Funny, lighter than the last series, and I'm enjoying this new direction!

Great start to this series
Deadpool (2018-) #1 - Skottie Young,Nic Klein,Scott Hepburn

This takes advantage of the movies and pairs up Deadpool with Negasonic Teenage Warhead.   She manages his clients, and he takes care of business.   It works out well, although him calling everything Negasonic Teenage blankety-blank is going to get old soon.   Oh, Primus, I hope she wails on him for that instead of playing on her phone...

 

Deadpool has contracts with loopholes.   Like if you don't say that someone's a mutant, god, or Inhuman, you get fined.   If you don't pay the fine, he takes your bike.   Because he's Deadpool and he doesn't care. 

 

Also, he's mind wiped himself to protect everyone he loves, so he's back to being the annoying, mouthy ass that he was when I first fell for his character.  Or in other words: this should be fun.   There are different kinds of Deadpool fun and this is going to be the weirdest, goriest, grossest kind along with more of his brand of humor.   It won't be the serious ones that made me think as much as Ellie's storylines tended to, but that's okay.  If things got too static, I started getting bored.   

 

So far this looks like a great reboot.   Here's to hoping it doesn't get cancelled and rebooted in a year, LOL.   No, seriously, Marvel, quit doing that...
