Review: Deadpool: World's Greatest Vol. 1: Millionaire With A Mouth
Deadpool : World's Greatest, Volume 1: Millionaire with a Mouth (Paperback)--by Gerry Duggan [2016 Edition] - Mike Hawthorne, Terry Pallot, Heather Antos Gerry Duggan

Title: Deadpool: World's Greatest Vol. 1: Millionaire With A Mouth
Author: Gerry Duggan
Series: Deadpool: World's Greatest, 1
Format: ebook
Length: N/A
Rating: 3 stars

 

Synopsis: He's annoying. He's dangerous. He smells terrible. But the public loves him! That's right — the Merc with a Mouth is now the most popular hero in the world. Eat that, Spidey! But with great popularity comes overbearing responsibility, so Wade has called in a little help being him. You won't believe — or recognize — who he signed up! (Unless you've memorized every volume of the Official Handbook.) But when an imposter sets out to ruin Wade Wilson, our hero has the perfect bait to lure the baddie out: his innocent daughter, Ellie!

 

Favourite character: Slapstick
Least favourite character: N/A

 

Mini-review: This was interesting. Not Deadpool-y enough, I missed him breaking the fourth wall. And seeing as how Slapstick does it too it would've been cool to see him do it as well, but alas it wasn't meant to be this time around.

I felt confused and disturbed and amused during this. I obviously missed a lot, what with Deadpool now being an Avenger. I love how he hired a bunch of other mercs to masquerade as him. I liked Slapstick and Madcap especially.

Review: Captain America: Sam Wilson Vol. 1: Not My Captain America
Captain America: Sam Wilson Vol. 1 (Captain America: Sam Wilson (2015-)) - Nick Spencer,Paul Renaud,Daniel Acuña

Title: Captain America: Sam Wilson Vol. 1: Not My Captain America
Author: Nick Spencer
Series: Captain America: Sam Wilson, 1
Format: ebook 
Length: N/A
Rating: 3 stars

 

Synopsis: When Steve Rogers was restored to his natural age, he chose one of his closest and most trusted allies to take up his shield: Sam Wilson, formerly the Avenger known as the Falcon! But Sam isn't Steve — and after recent events, he's on the outs with both his old friend and S.H.I.E.L.D. What could have sent the high flying new Cap's approval rating plummeting so dramatically? Things get slithery when the vile Sons of the Serpent make the scene, and you'll howl at the glorious return of fan-favorite Cap-Wolf — well, Fal-Cap-Wolf! But what other horrors await in the dungeon of Doctor Malus? And who will be the All-New, All-Different Falcon? The headline-making Sam Wilson is a Captain America for today!

 

Favourite character: Sam & Misty 
Least favourite character: the Serpent dudes

 

Mini-review: I'm not going to lie, I felt bored and confused during this. I enjoyed Misty Knight's role, even if her costume was ridiculous and she should've died from having her stomach and chest exposed like that. But who cares as long as she turns the nerds on, am I right? I struggled with this. Which made me sad because of I love Sam Wilson, especially in the MCU.

Review: Planet Hulk: Warzones!
Planet Hulk: Warzones! - Carolyn Humphries

Title: Planet Hulk: Warzones!
Author: Sam Humphries
Series: Secret Wars
Format: ebook
Length: N/A
Rating: 3 stars

 

Synopsis: It's Battleworld's most incredible warzone — a land of monstrous, roaming Hulks! Few ordinary humans could survive Greenland for long. But Steve Rogers is no mere mortal — he's an indomitable gladiator, especially when sitting astride his trusty steed, Devil Dinosaur! With the mysterious Doc Green his only ally, can this shield-wielding hero ride into the Mud Kingdom and rescue Bucky before the Red King sentences him to death? They'll face wild Hulks in the jungle, giant Hulks in lakes of fire, bull Hulks and plant Hulks and plenty more besides! It's a Gamma Mamma-Jamma that may break the spirit of even the world's greatest freedom fighter. But how did this Hulk-infested realm come to exist in the first place?

 

Favourite character: Devil Dinosaur
Least favourite character: N/A

 

Mini-review: This was so confusing. I finished it mainly because I had to read the first comic for Totally Awesome Hulk Vol. 1. But I was utterly confused.

The Secret of the Caves, Hardy Boys #7
The Secret of the Caves (Hardy Boys, #7) - Walter S. Rogers,Franklin W. Dixon

OK, so...nothing really happens?

 

That's not entirely true, but that was my feeling by the end of the book. However, the energetic writing and the very real, stupid danger the boys are allowed to get themselves into gives the rating a boost.

 

The boys are out having a lark in the bay when a casual boat race is interrupted by a fire on an incoming steamer. It isn't serious, but an excited passenger jumps overboard and must be saved from drowning by the Hardys. Even stranger the elderly woman, when coming out of her swoon, gasps that she must see Fenton Hardy!

 

The lady is looking for her brother, a professor with a penchant for saying "By jing!" and not tying his shoelaces - this is very important information say the boys AND their father. Hardy, Sr. takes off on the case and the boys plan a camping trip with Chet and Biff to take their minds off the lack of mystery in their lives.

 

Of course, there are rumors of an escaped convict - member of the gang that terrorized motorists in the last volume no less - and the caves they set out to explore have been the site of strange noises and gunshots and even a hermit named Captain Royal.

 

There is a resolution to all things, but as I've said, the real winner here is the pleasure the boys take in planning their excursion, camping, exploring the cave, cooking over fires and the like. The boys bring their trusty guns and shoot them off a few times and the cave exploring I mentioned? They immediately split up and Frank gets lost in the dark. Amazing.

 

'Secret of the Caves' got a serious re-write in 1965 in which the thin plot was scrapped and the hermit gets himself some serious hardware. The girls have more to do in the revision than wistfully regret having to stay home and clean house, so that's something.

Spidey and Rulk raise and lead an underground army in this action packed extravaganza - but when Red Hulk falls, only Spider-Man stands in the way of the Subterranean invasion of Manhattan!

 

Favourite character: Peter
Least favourite character: N/A

 

Mini-review: Good. Another comic where I have to read extra. I started Daredevil vol 3, but Goodreads so kindly informed me that the bind-up also included Avenging Spider-Man 6 and The Punisher 10. So off I went and here we are.

I liked this . I love Peter's banter while he's fighting. I enjoyed all the team-ups, especially Hawkeye.
