Enjoyed this
Powers (2000-2004) #1 - Michael Avon Oeming,Brian Michael Bendis

Jinxworld is part of DC now, and to celebrate, Bendis gave away a whole slew of #1s.  I grabbed them. 


This was among one of my favorites: it's a murder-mystery in which the world is well aware of super powers.   When Retro Girl is killed - albeit at the end of the issue - it's going to be about figuring out who killed her via good, old detective work. 


I know, because I've heard about this series, and Retro Girl's murder isn't a spoiler - in my opinion - since this arc is called 'Who Killed Retro Girl?"  It's not about knowing if it happens, it's about the journey to figure out who, although this comic is mostly set up.   Good set up - but it also doesn't answer a whole bunch of questions that I felt like I knew about, having seen the series. 


So my knowledge about this series killed a little bit of the enjoyment for me, which is why this is four stars instead of five.

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.

Yes, please!
Transformers: Lost Light #15 - James Roberts,Brendan Cahill

Oh, man, as much as I was shocked by the last issue, this one?   This one had me just in shock throughout.   


And I was pleased.   This series keeps getting better and better, although, dammit, why can't Grimlock be part of a story for more than, like, two issues at a time?   Bummer.   I look forward to meeting up with the Lost Light crew at the same time that I regret leaving Grimlock behind, so mixed feelings about that. 


And if Python hadn't melted my brain, I would be giving you a longer, better review.   So there you go.

Cannibal #1 - Brian Buccellato,Jennifer Young,Matias Bergara

I'd never heard of this, but got it in a Humble Bundle.   (Hah, I keep not wanting the more recent Humble Bundles, so I spent another small chunk of money on the Marvel one dollar sale, which really comes to less than ninety cents with my Comixology Unlimited discount.   Since most of these collections are above ten dollars, a lot of them close to twenty, this is a steal.)


But, this... this is a creepy horror comic.   What if the zombie virus made you crave flesh, to the point that you couldn't help yourself - but you were still you, still felt disgusted by the desire, and guilt when you ate someone?   


This is a new take on zombies, one that is truly creepy.   In a small, Florida town, no one's been infected - yet.   What happens when someone who is infected not only comes into town?


This comic is a lot of set up, for both the characters and scenario, but it makes the cliffhanger all that much more suspenseful.   Just a great take on zombies.

Heavy on Vision and family
Champions (2016-) #17 - Humberto Ramos,Mark Waid

And yet, it's bittersweet.  I didn't realize Marvel was rebooting until recently, but they are losing a LOT of money for me.   No Inhumans, and no Vision, no Viv, no Vivian.   So I am cutting out all Avengers titles, not picking up anything to make up for the loss of Inhumans - because I was in it for Black Bolt and the rest of the royal family - and unless they announce titles for DD, Wolvie, and maybe Jessica Jones - depending on the author - I will be dropping a ton of titles.  


Not happy, not happy at all, which ties into this series: I will be incredibly sad to see this go.   It was fun, it was thoughtful, and it had Vision.   I'm also scared about how it's ending soon - and given what's happening with Vivian's computer virus, how they plan on ending this so soon.
