Each week there are comics that come out that I just can’t wait to read, and some that I really don’t care about. You can find my reasons for being excited about these comics here. Now that I’ve read the comics I was excited about, were they as good as I hoped? Were there others that surprised me?
Read on, and find out!
4001 A.D.: Shadowman #1 (Valiant) You can find the full review here, but in a nutshell, I enjoyed the comic.
Batman #2 (DC) Not as good as the last, but that was kind of expected. Far from a bad issue, we got a little more story building here that’s bound to pay off later, plus some of the interesting nods to previous Batman offerings.
Moon Knight #4 (Marvel) I didn’t expect much out of this comic, and it didn’t disappoint. It wasn’t a great comic, but it wasn’t bad either. I think I’m unfairly comparing it to the previous series, perhaps because of the art style, but this series just isn’t measuring up just yet.
Superman #2 (DC) A heart warming story that highlights the kind of man, and father, Superman is. It’s a new (to me) role for the character, and one I’m eager to see more of in the future. The two part opening to this series was fantastic, and what’ll happen next could prove to be somewhat interesting. It’s definitely worth checking out at least the first two issues.
Vote Loki #2 (Marvel) I thoroughly enjoyed this issue, and you check out a full review here. Essentially, however, this is the kind of comic that you can read and marvel at Loki’s ability to turn a situation to his advantage. Not afraid to poke fun at the spectacle of politics, this four issue miniseries has thoroughly won me over.
