Comic Reviews 49/52 (2015)

A rather fast review round this week.
To much to do, not enough time to rest and collect ones thoughts.
I left out Star Wars no.13 on purpose. It is one of the worst comics i’ve read and i want this feature to feature the ones who are enjoyable.

  • Rick and Morty no.7 (2015)
  • Vision no.2 (2015)
  • Paper Girls no.3 (2015)
  • Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur no.1 (2015)
  • The Auteur: Sister Bambi no.5 (2015)
  • Black Science no.18 (2015)

Rick and Morty no.7 (2015)

One of these days this reviewer has to watch the tv-show that this comic is based on.
This issue is part of a story that spans over a couple of issues and was a lot of fun to read. Just look at the page above and imagine a whole issue that is made up of equally funny pages.
Looking forward to the next issue.


Vision no.2 (2015)

The first issue was very entertaining, issue two continues that trend.
The interesting thing is, that while the Vision is still trying to become more human, the family of synthezoids he built to accompany him on the journey has already overtaken him on that path and he is ignoring it.
The afterword by writer Tom King is a great way to end the issue. He sounds so sincere and i’m looking forward to where the journey of the Visions will lead.


Paper Girls no.3 (2015)

This is one of the comics one can shout at because it feels like the cast chooses all the bad desicions.
And that cliffhanger at the end indtroduces us to one of the most mundane but brutal predators know. to humankind. Presented masterfully by Cliff Chiang.


Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur no.1 (2015)

Lunella Lafayete will surely become one of the fan favourite characters of the Marvel Universe, i just wish she would have gotten more pages in her first issue. This ultra intelligent girl deserved a much thicker first issue. This one felt like a new animated tv-show that should have an hour long first episode, but all we get are the first 15 minutes. And while that is of course nothing unusual in comics, this reviewer feels that is not in the titles best interest.
I guess this will be a title that reads better when one has the oppertunity to read a few issues in one sitting or wait for the collection.


The Auteur: Sister Bambi no.5 (2015?

A brilliant way to end the issue. It’s creator vs. creation, social commentary and an ending that is just to good to be true.
But the ending is told as a script. Which won’t make it a mainstream darling, but who cares, i’m glad the series got the chance to end and stayed highly creative until that point.


Black Science no.18 (2015)

Rick Remender is one of the masters of the emotional kick in the groin. And Mateo Scalera’s artwork makes it even more painful. There is a panel in this issue where the kid version of Grant has this look on his face that says “I’m aware i’m doing what is right but that it is also one of the biggest mistakes i’ll ever make.”
