Strange Adventures #11

By: Tom King, Mitch Gerads
Released: Jul 28, 2021

Adam Strange may save the world, but can he save his marriage?
There are things that happened in the original war with the marauding Pykkts that Adam never told his wife, Alanna, and she wants answers now. Adding fuel to the fire is the possibility that he didn’t just deceive her, but entire galactic civilizations, in his quest for victory...

I've really been digging this run and this issue is no exception. We get some solid action out of it, the culmination of one of the plotlines that's been layered through the last few issues, and the same great artwork we've come to expect from Ortiz (aside from that one feature panel of Molly lookin' a mess). I was worried that I wouldn't like Peacekeeper-01, as he is a bit tropey, but he works more

This series, which started off really strong, is starting to feel like it's circling itself a little bit. I was hoping this would really get me interested in a side of the Marvel universe I didn't know a lot about, and the opening issues really made me feel like that's where we were headed, but now it seems we're in "suspect of the week" territory and it's not quite as exciting.

This series continues to feel special somehow, and so I will continue reading it, but it does seem to be slowing down a little bit with this issue. Ribic's hollow, lidless eyes continue to weigh down his otherwise gorgeous art.

Cates writes dialog with the best of them, but his story and character "developments" are very much not for me. The art is fine here, and there are a couple of neat nods to Venom's past (which has been kicked in the nads and then spit on over the course of this run) but, overall, this is an unredeeming end to what's been some of my least favorite work on the character.

This series has been fun so far. I’m especially digging the unexpected relationship between Silk and Jameson. However, despite a sort of Batman-esque vibe to the mystery behind them, the villains just aren’t really grabbing me here. I’m going to push forward with it and hope that the primary conflict can catch up with this one’s overall positive impression.

2.0

This arc (NM #3, 4, and 6) was pretty bad, and the conclusion here doubles down on everything I didn’t care for about it. It feels pointlessly, 90’s style edgy, and just to set up what might be the least interesting set of villains I’ve seen introduced in a Marvel book for some time. I’m ok if we just forget about these guys, and this arc, entirely.

New Mutants #6

By: Jonathan Hickman, Flaviano
Released: Jan 29, 2020

A simple visit to check in on old friends in the human world has gone wrong - dangerously wrong. With innocent lives on the line, Armor and the other young mutants have their hands tied... but escaping without collateral damage looks increasingly impossible.

I dearly love the premise this issue starts with: Compassionate, friendship-driven check-ins with less-famous mutants. It shows a nice slice of day-to-day Krakoa business, and it achieves a tone DoX hasn't really touched on yet: heartwarming.

But then it all goes down the crapper at the end thanks to the arrival of a dishwater-dull antagonist, drawn in the unique style that I almost be more

This was a really solid celebration of Darkhawk's history, and a little bit more. The three short stories are set in the character's street hero days, his cosmic era, and his future, respectively.

The first is both written and drawn in the style of his early 90's issues, and even makes clever passing references to things that were going on in the series at that time. By modern standar more

I liked it. I’m not very familiar with the Eternals, or with Gillen and his much-lauded works, but this has been an interesting introduction to both. The tone is kind of unique. It has hints of Hickman, but is somehow both drier and more lighthearted than Hickman’s usual style. I’m tempted to say that some of the humor isn’t landing, but I’m not always sure it isn’t intentional, gi more

I liked it. I grew up near the namesake Proctor Valley Road and was pleasantly surprised to find several authentic local myths about the place represented in this issue. The character motivations are a bit hokey, in keeping with a horror story tradition, but the art and dialog are solid, and the setup is enough to make me want to see where it goes.

It was fine. I’ve been enjoying this series overall, but this issue wasn’t a highlight. The dialog and artwork were great, as always. The plot felt pretty thin here, however.
