Welcome to my comic book review rundown for the week of September 15, 2021. I ended up reading a lot of comics this week. I will talk about Wynd number 10, Black’s myth number 3, Save yourself number 4, and much more!

I’m going to open talking about Superman and the Authority number 3 by writer Grant Morrison. The penultimate issue showed us how Superman’s new crew helped save June / Enchantress. While the main story might not be the most exciting for me, I really have fun seeing a random group of characters come together to help Superman save the world. Also, June / Enchantress knocking on Apollo made me laugh.

Does he have any obvious weird characters? Yes.

Recommendation: To pick up.

Trip warning: Superman and the Authority number 3 has a character close to suicide. So, be careful.

Titans United number 1 review

United Titans Number 1

From writer Cavan Scott it is clear that United Titans is DC Comics’ way of having a title that could potentially benefit from the live action Titans series on HBO Max. The introduction of a mysterious threat that appears to give people superpowers was a pretty good premise in the first issue. Is such an event related to the fact that Connor loses his abilities? I do not know. Anyway, being that I’m a Raven fan, I think I’ll be sticking around for a few more issues to see if this series keeps my interest.

Does he have any obvious weird characters? No.

Recommendation: Up to you.

Last Annihilation Wakanda live review

The Last Annihilation: Wakanda Number 1

From writer Evan Narcisse, The Last Annihilation: Wakanda The number 1 one-shot showed the Wakandan Empire getting involved in stopping Dormammu. While I expected Emperor T’Challa to play a bigger role, the main narrative focused on M’Baku trying to come to terms with his new reality. I liked the way Narcissus explored M’Baku’s conflicting thoughts as the narrative drew on the threads of the story for which Ta-Nehisi Coates laid the groundwork for his Black Panther solo race. With a new Black Panther solo book slated for November, I can’t wait to see how Marvel Comics develops what Coates has presented.

Storm also helped the Wakandan Empire cope with Mindless’s endless Dormammu army by giving Shuri access to Mysterium. I enjoyed his interactions with T’Challa and Shuri. Considering the mess that was Vita Ayala’s Marauders number 13, I’m here for the current writers allowing Ororo and T’Challa’s relationship to continue.

Shuri and Manifold flirting with each other was cute. He really needs to take her on a spectacular date (when they both have time).

Does he have any obvious weird characters? Yes.

Recommendation: To pick up.

Power Rangers issue 11 review

Power rangers Number 11

I think writer Ryan Parrott’s motto for his Power rangers to run is “chaos upon chaos”. Our young heroes just can’t get a break. I’m still processing all the information we have on the Empyreals and how it all relates to what’s going on in the Mighty Morphin series. And while Drakkon made a certain decision wasn’t much of a surprise, there’s still a lot going on in this issue for fans to be excited about.

Does he have any obvious weird characters? No.

Recommendation: TO PICK UP!

Beyond the Breach issue 3 review

Beyond the breach Number 3

The third issue of Beyond the breach, from writer Ed Brisson, told us a bit more about Samuel’s past and offered a healthy dose of brutal action and world-building. With Vanessa and Samuel taking Dougie to his grandparents, I can’t wait for Samuel to talk about his past on the trip. As a person from a war-torn reality he has a bunch of skeletons in his closet and I want to see them all.

Does he have any obvious weird characters? No.

Recommendation: To pick up.

Register exam number 4
Save yourself, number 4 (Image: BOite BOUM!)

Save yourself Number 4

Writer Bones Leopard’s Save yourself ended with issue # 4. I enjoyed reading this gay-led sci-fi story about a couple of humans trying to expose the murderous side of Earth’s greatest heroes. Damn! Even when the truth was revealed, some people were still unwilling to accept it, which came across as quite realistic given the times we live in. With Earth entering a new era, I hope we can see Gigi and Mia again one day.

Does he have obvious queer representation? Yes.

Recommendation: To pick up.

Seven Secrets issue 12 review

Seven secrets Number 12

After learning of Canto’s true allegiance in the previous issue, Seven secrets Writer Tom Taylor’s issue number 12 gave us the backstory of Amon that helped explain his actions in the present tense. Amon and Canto’s relationship was cute and it allowed for a good discussion of whether or not it made sense to love a mysterious organization (and the propaganda that goes with it) more than a real person. There were also some similarities between Amon and Casper.

Speaking of Casper, with his powers activated (he can fly now), is he also one of the Seven Secrets? I would like to know.

Does he have any obvious weird characters? Yes.

Recommendation: To pick up.

Time Before Time critical issue 5

Time before time Number 5

Things have changed dramatically for Nadia and Tatsuo. The big guns will get involved now. That’s all I’m going to say without spoiling what happened in Time before time issue 5 by co-authors Declan Shalvey and Rory McConville. So good!

Does he have any obvious weird characters? No.

Recommendation: To pick up.

Wynd Issue 10 Reviews

Wynd Number 10

Writer James Tynion IV gave Wynd a huge makeover in Wynd number 10 as our young main character accepted his powers. However, he seems to have a hard time controlling himself when using his new form. Not only did Wynd undergo a massive transformation, but his relationship with Thorn also progressed, with the two sharing a small kiss. Also, I guess Thorn has magical hair now? I am here for this.

Prince Yorik had a moment to develop his character as we learned about his thought process. In Wynd number 10, he realized that it doesn’t matter if you are a prince or not. If you have someone you need to take care of, you will still have responsibilities and that is a good thing.

With the withdrawal of vampires and the evolution into a war of fairies and humans, I can’t wait for this series to return!

Does he have any obvious weird characters? Yes.

Recommendation: TO PICK UP!

Black's Myth issue 3 review

Black’s myth Number 3

I was provided with a free digital copy of Black’s myth number 3 for consideration. The opinions I have shared are my own.

I love stories about supernatural beings who find a way to live while remaining hidden in the human world. And that of the writer Erick Palicki Black’s myth just give me that. Black myth Issue 3 showed how vampires worked in Palicki’s fictional world. After their encounter with the vampires, Strummer and Ben found themselves without any leads. I liked seeing Strummer think about how different working on such a case was from his usual non-supernatural work. Being a werewolf, she could easily tell if a human had been unfaithful or lying. However, his keen senses weren’t really helpful in determining who stole the silver bullets.

We met a new character simply called the Old Man. The creature, interested in collecting valuables, has offered direction to our crime-solving duo, but it’s clear that the deeper Strummer and Ben wander, the more danger they’ll be.

Does he have any obvious weird characters? Yes.

Recommendation: To pick up.

Hail Number 5

I was provided with a free digital copy of Hail number 5 for consideration. The opinions I have shared are my own.

By the co-creators Rafael Scavone (writer) and Rafael de Latorre (artist), Hail came to a satisfactory conclusion in the fifth issue. We got to see Denton and Tobias trying to survive an attack. Captain Spencer is dead. Which one… yeah!

And while I enjoyed the tense finale, with Lucy and Ann also playing a part in saving Denton and Tobias, the most impactful scene was Denton which ultimately resulted in her son’s death. From the emotional dialogue to preparing for the decision Denton had to make, it was all handled perfectly, in my opinion. I loved the group of panels showing the sunrise as well as what Denton had done using just one page.

Does he have any obvious weird characters? No.

Recommendation: To pick up.

Hellboy and the BPRD: 1957 – Family Ties Number 1

I was provided with a free digital copy of Hellboy and the BPRD: 1957 – Family Ties number 1 for review. The opinions I have shared are my own.

Co-written by Mike Mignola and Chris Roberson, Hellboy and the BPRD: 1957 – Family Ties Number 1 is a one-shot featuring a fun little adventure for main character and agent Susan Xiang. The search for a copy of Gustav Strobl’s book Witchcraft and demonology leads the couple to a suburban house where things got grim.

Every family has certain problems that they have to deal with. And sometimes there are issues that can never be resolved. I liked how the narrative took the dynamics of the parent-child relationship and gave it a demonic twist. Also, Laurence Campbell is back as an artist!

Does he have any obvious weird characters? No.

Recommendation: To pick up.
