When I read this issue i honestly didn’t see Mary proposing to Carl as SJW, but with the Leonard-Charlene part I did. And if SJW in comics upsets you then just stay away from all Al Ewing comics as a whole.

Okay....so far so good. I had low expectations coming in due to Cates current Thor run which is a piece of monkey crap (I think Marvel forced Thor on him). The 1st issue is good but I still hold some reservations as to if it will still be good throughout like Ewing's Immortal Hulk.

Toonstrack reviewed Black Manta #1 Sep 8, 2021

So to start this off I'm dispelling some lies told about this book.

Black manta is literlly still a villain in this. He isnt fighting oppression, He raids the ship because they stole an artifact from him. He leaves the hostages there to fend for themselves.

The other three villains building wespons here are also black, as is the new enemy from the end of the issue.
>
Our local misanthrope Merlyn literally just made up things to complain about in this review. Like this stuff is objectively false, but thats what happens when you skim a book and just look at the pretty without actually reading it. Its beyond obvious he has some issues when there's mostly black people in a mainline DC book which isn't connected to Milestone in any way(those books he conveniently avoids reading). Sad to see this sentiment in this day and age but no matter, we are here to stay in books and in real life.


As for this book, its pretty good. The art is really nice, reminds me of David Aja. The narrative is mostly setup but we get an idea into Mantas mental state and hes concerned about his legacy and what he will be remembered by ss he faces his own mortality. Meanwhile new enemies appear with designs of their own to bring great chance and an ancient threat awakens.

Mantas characterization is on point. Despite what Merlyn would have you believe, hes very much as ruthless and murderous as he should be, Klinger surrendered enemies and not open ot negotiation but willing to allow those who can benefit him to live.

The story is a bit of a slow start but a good one still.

Id give this an 8/10 but to counteract Merlyns fake news review I'll go ahead and give it a 10 score. more

Excellent ending to a fantastic, legendary run. I was never a reader of Hulk ( I've been reading comics since I was 6 yrs old) the character to me was one dimensional and too predictable: get angry, smash things and then feel sorry about it all. This run made me a Hulk reader moving forward.
