Hey guys! I thought I’d do a different kind of post for today. I wanted to share what I’m reading with you all, by listing and briefly discussing all of the titles I pick up monthly. Hopefully to create an environment of inclusion and community involvement. You guys will have to let me know what titles you’ve picked up this month as well! Keep in mind I’m very new to the world of comics and only primarily follow some of the popular Marvel series, for now. Let’s get started!
Deadpool Vs. Carnage 4#
The climax of the Deadpool Vs. Carnage mini series, the fourth and final issue is finally out. Overall the DvC series as been an enjoyable little romp, with it’s ups and downs. For example, the comics follow a somewhat reptative pattern of Deadpool picking up on the “crazy wavelengths” to hunt carnage, fighting, Carnage escaping, and then repeating the process all over again. Regardless it’s been very exciting seeing my two favorite madmen go toe to toe and finding a new perspective on insanity. I should also mention the art and style really make the comic pop, which is great.
Thanos Annual 1#
Wait….what? I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this comic, and I think I got a bit more than i bargained for. This story follows Thanos’s journey through time and space, exploring both the past and future of the Mad Titan himself. I felt like I was watching a Star Trek episode for a second, with the multiple Thano-es and alternate realities….confusing but entertaining. I probably need to brush up on my Thanos history and re-read this one!
Original Sin 3#
I’ll be honest, I wasn’t quite sure what to think of the Original Sin so far. I’ll most likely be writing a complete separate article on this later. I must say however, this issue got my interest re-kindled! I was a little annoyed with the pacing in the first several issues, how they moved forward without really moving forward. Finally things are beginning to heat up! We’ll see how things go from here.
Original Sin 4#
I haven’t gotten a chance to read this yet, however I’m excited to get started after the last issue. Let’s hope the pacing is a little more brisk!
Amazing Spider-Man 3#
I’ve been loving this series so far, it seems only to be getting better and better. Probably my favorite this month. This issue addressed quite a few of my concerns with the series so far, including the absence of MJ and Electro’s unnecessary role as the villain. The continued focus on the fallout of Superior-Man continues to bring both major conflicts and humor to the story, which is a delicate balance that’s working very well for them so far.
Amazing Spider-Man 1.2#
This series has been very entertaining as well. I love the extra perspective on Spidey’s origins. It’s fun to explore the time period between Peter obtaining his powers and his full commitment to becoming a hero. I’m also loving the “Syndrome from Incredibles” villain situation that’s being set up with Clash.
So what comics have you picked up this month? I know my selection probably doesn’t have any shockers(pun intended), but keep in mind I’m just starting out. Anyway, let me know in the comments! And please, please, if you have a recommendation let me know! I’m always interesting in something new to read!
