2020 iWolverine #1

Jul 16, 2020

I was really looking forward to this comic but I think I am going to forget about it by the next issue. This isn't the fault of the book, it simply was not my cup of tea. If you want the full Iron Man 2020 arc this might be worth a pick up but I think this is a pass.

Adventure Finders: The Edge of Empire #3

All-America Comix #1

Jul 7, 2020

I was drawn to this idea of a younger superhero with modern resources and trials. However, I don't think America came out much better than a caricature. I want to see this character fleshed out and perhaps in issue 2 we will see that. The art and writing was decent but it didn't really go beyond a simple idea.

This isn't the strongest series to come up with the X-Men revamp but the themes are rather engaging.

Star Wars Adventures (2020) #1

Oct 14, 2020

I find it hilarious that I always pick up these #1 Star Wars comics in an attempt to get a deep and personal Star Wars story and instead get a kids book. The themes are simple and understandable for a young reader and that is what the book sets out to do. However, as an adult I don't think that it connects very well to me.
