Welcome to my comic book review rundown for the week of November 17, 2021. I’m going to talk about Superman: Son of Kal-El number 5, SWORD number 10, Clear number 2, and more!

It has finally happened! In that of the writer Tom Taylor Superman: Son of Kal-El number 5 we got to see Jon and Jay sharing their first kiss. The current issue sparked a lot of reactions online when the promotional material featured the two young characters sharing such a loving moment. In my opinion, Jon falling in love with Jay made sense. Jay is definitely ready to support Jon when needed. Plus, I love how Jay has his own superpowers so that he’s not an immediate responsibility for Jon if someone decides to kidnap him.

The current problem has made our young Superman realize that he can’t help others if he doesn’t take care of himself first. I think this is an important lesson for every hero to learn, regardless of their age. The other lesson was that saving every being is just not possible.

Does he have any obvious weird characters? Yes.

Recommendation: To gather!

SWORD Review Issue 10

SWORD Number 10

Even though I knew Wiz-Kid wasn’t going to betray the mutants, I have to say that writer Al Ewing still managed to make me slightly doubt Wiz-Kid’s motives in SWORD number 10. Wiz-Kid is definitely an interesting character. I can’t wait to see what he will do once SWORD comes to an end.

With Krakoa having the ability to resurrect mutants with certain modifications, I think Ewing did a good job of explaining why Wiz-Kid didn’t want to go through the process (unless it’s completely necessary) to wake up in a new body.

As for the action side, I’m ready to see Storm wreak havoc on incoming reinforcements in the next issue. I liked the way she could have sensed that something bad was headed for Arakko. I follow all accounts showing Storm’s connection to the planet she is on and how such a connection allows her to experience certain disturbances. Fingers crossed, Ewing makes Storm tap into his divinity.

Does he have any obvious weird characters? No.

Power Rangers issue 13 review

Power rangers Number 13

From writer Ryan Parrott, Power rangers Issue number 13 was an action-packed episode of “The Eltarian War” arc. It was great to see the Omega Rangers teaming up with the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers to take on Zartus’ army on Earth. However, it was clear that things were going to get worse for our heroes before they got better.

With the Rangers having to collaborate with longtime villains due to the dire circumstances, I can’t wait to see the Rangers come up with an effective counterattack. Plus, do Bulk and Skull agree?

Does he have any obvious weird characters? No.

Recommendation: TO GATHER!

Mamo issue 5 review

mamo Number 5

mamo by writer Sas Milledge is undoubtedly one of the best series released this year. Number 5 concluded everything satisfactorily while opening a new door for Jo and Orla. I enjoyed reading about the magic system in this series and want to know more.

The topic of the ties you share with your homeland, family and friends (even if some of them are problematic ties) has been well addressed. Hopefully we will see Jo and Orla, who have now openly displayed their romantic feelings for each other, return for another adventure in this intriguing fictional world.

Does he have any obvious weird characters? Yes.

Recommendation: TO GATHER!

Clear review of number 2

Clear Number 2

I was provided with a free digital copy of Clear number 2 for consideration. The opinions I have shared are my own.

By writer Scott Snyder, with the art and colors of Francis Manapul, Clear number 2 gave us a lot of people with a deeper look at Sam’s personal life and feelings. I’m still not a fan of Sam’s ex-wife Kendra killed to give him a new mystery to uncover (related to the work Kendra was doing).

However, I am interested in the fictional world that the creative team introduced. The concept that human beings change their reality through the use of “veils” and its impact on society as a whole is something I want to see more of.

Does he have any obvious weird characters? No.

Recommendation: To gather.
