Another solid issue of Sex Criminals. This is my favorite comic book coming out right now. It never disappoints. I didn't love this issue as much as other, but it was a fun side to get and I'm excited to see where this new person will play a role.

When will I ever feel caught up? I'm still little lost, I missed almost all of the Weeping Lion stuff, so this still felt new to me. I did enjoy the interactions between Bucky and Natasha and I hope to see more of that in the future, though this issue made it seem like it might be awhile. There were some funny lines through this that I loved. I have one more issue before I'm caught up more

I've always wanted to get into Black Widow comics because I love her in the movies so much, but I might have jumped in at the wrong issue. I picked up this issue after it was recommended by someone, but I still felt a little lost. It was a better reading experience than some other comics I randomly jump into.

This was so much better than the last issue! Now that Veronica is back in town, Archie is sprucing himself up in order to take her out and rekindle their romance. But they have nothing in common.

I picked this up based on a review I heard on a YouTube channel, and I was convinced I would be able to jump in randomly. I was wrong.
