Welcome to my comic book reviews this week (May 19, 2021). I will cover Batman / Fortnite: Point Zero Number 3, Catwoman Number 31, Runaways Number 36, and more.

I have to start by talking about the incredibly pleasant Batman / Fortnite: Point Zero number 3. From what I know of the fandom, this was one of the most anticipated issues in history due to Batman’s fight with Snake Eyes. In my opinion, the writer Christos Gage did not disappoint. From their first meeting to gradually building a level of mutual respect, Batman vs. Snake Eyes is masterfully done. Each panel is wonderful, with artist Reilly Brown making every punch and kick dynamic in an impressive way. There is a point where the other players stand and watch Batman and Snake Eyes fight. And you know what? I would have done the same.

And while the characters inside the world of Fortnite can’t speak, we get a lot of world building through email correspondence involving the people who orchestrate it all. It is the organization’s fear that Bruce is about to escape that leads Snake Eye to be sent after him. Of course, the plan backfires.

With Batman / Fornite: Point Zero with number 3 ending on an exciting cliffhanger, so as I’m excited for the sequel I’m a little disappointed to see Selina being used in some way. The last thing I want Catwoman to be is a damsel in distress.

Does he have any obvious weird characters? Yes.

Recommendation: TO PICK UP!

Catwoman Number 31

If you have been following my weekly reviews, you would know that I took a break from reviewing the current Catwoman solo series. However, the current Ram V writer arc is the reason I keep coming back to talking about it. I don’t know about you, but I love to see Selina delve deeper into the world of Simon Saint. From what I can tell, the tale sets things right for Selina in a way that will connect with other books in the Batman line. She manages to save Ivy (someone has to call Harley!), But the danger is far from over.

Also, I have a little nitpick. While the cover is awesome, I wish there had been at least one woman trying to seduce Selina as well.

Does he have any obvious weird characters? Yes.

Recommendation: To pick up.

Wonder Girl number 1 review

wonder girl Number 1

I liked Yara Flor’s presentation at the “Future State” event. That’s why I decided to take the first issue of her solo by writer Joelle Jones. Having said that, I don’t think I will continue. I’m not saying it’s bad. I can see a lot of readers enjoying this series with Yara as the main protagonist and learning more about Brazilian folklore. It’s just not for me, especially since I’m not a big reader of the Wonder woman DC Comics world side.

The art (Jones pencils and Jordie Bellaire colors) is stunning, however. So, maybe I’ll take a few more upcoming cops to support the series? I do not know. I am in conflict.

Does he have any obvious weird characters? Yes.

Recommendation: Up to you.

Runaways issue 36 review

Runaways Number 36

Runaways is one of the few comics that make me look forward to the messy interactions between young actors. Writer Rainbow Rowell has a knack for making young superheroes act their age without appearing boring. Runaways The number 36 is clearly preparing things for the future of the team. And I can’t wait to find out all about it, especially with the time travel shenanigans involved.

Does he have any obvious weird characters? Yes.

Recommendation: TO PICK UP!

Power Rangers Magazine Issue 7

Power rangers Number 7

Speaking of another series featuring young superheroes acting their age without appearing boring, we have Power rangers number 7 by writer Ryan Parrott. After escaping from the planet Onyx, the latest installment allows the Rangers to determine the next step in their mission to find the Empyreals. It turns out that these divine beings are heading to a planet called Hartunia. With Parrott continuing to give the team moments to reflect on morality, I really enjoyed seeing our prospects decide how to handle the difficult situation involving Hartunia.

According to Xi, wouldn’t it be better to let Hartunia be destroyed? Xi’s position even got me thinking because Hartunia is known as a planet that thrives by colonizing other planets and exploiting indigenous resources. Parrott does a good job showing the thought process of each Ranger as well as Drakkon. The opening of the issue has a scene where Zack opts for a surprising move to beat Drakkon in a “friendly” match. I wouldn’t be surprised if this part of Zack’s personality shows up as the Rangers try to help Hartunia. Moreover, Drakkon is clearly planning something. I don’t know if that involves him becoming the new Blue Ranger, but I can feel his brain working.

Does he have any obvious weird characters? No.

Phantom review on Scan number 2

Ghost on the scan Number 2

Hmmm. I think Ghost on the scan by co-creators (writer) Cullen Bunn and (artist) Mark Torres would work much better as a binge-read or streaming show. The second issue tells us a bit more about how our random cast of characters is connected. It seems to date back to the night the comet fell. Apparently Matthew and his team are ill and their psychic powers are symptoms of said illness. There is certainly a pleasant horror and mystery to this story coupled with some spooky art. But again, this is the kind of storytelling I want to read in one sitting instead of waiting a month for a new issue to come out. There is just something about the rhythm. I cannot explain it correctly.

Does he have any obvious weird characters? No.

Recommendation: Up to you.

Review of number 4 of the Snow Angels

Snow angels Number 4

I was provided with a free digital copy of Snow angels number 4 for consideration. The opinions I have shared are my own.

From writer Jeff Lemire and artist Jock, Snow Angels Issue 4 ends the first arc. I’m not sure when this series will return, but I can’t wait to read what happens next after all the secrets revealed in the current issue. It’s supposed to be a 10-part story.

Running away from the snowman, Milli and Mae’s father decides to tell his daughters the truth. It turns out that he, his brother, and his brother’s wife broke all three rules years ago. And while I’m not a fan of the relationship drama that occurs between this trio, I appreciated that Milli and Mae understood their father’s words well enough. They are clearly confused. But they love him.

Now that their father is gone, it will be interesting to see what happens to Milli and Mae. The world as they know it has been shattered. The trench is not what they were taught to be as children.

Does he have any obvious weird characters? No.

Recommendation: To pick up.
