Welcome back to Advance Reviews. Here are this weeks reads on F.O.C. 1/27/20
Godkillers #1 – Aftershock Comics
This was a good read. I thoroughly enjoyed the dialog and the suspense.
I do think it dragged on a little, but that could be the writers way of telling the story, a slow story buildup nonetheless. This is a definite pick up for me.
This starts off strong with Deathstroke, then ends with a whimper on Batgirl and Robin (Jason Todd).
We meet the villain Survivors but that’s it in this first issue.
2020 Machine Man #1 – Marvel
First appearance Machine Man 2020 (X-52 Model).
The A.I. are rising and attacking but Aaron could care less. He is in pursuit of his love.
The writers do a good job of making Aaron (X-51) seem like he is a stalker with mental problems.
Atlantis Attacks #2 – Marvel
The drama continues from the first issue. Meet the second team of Agents of Atlas.
The plot thickens, someone betrays the team and its up to Amadeus Cho to find out who did it. But can he survive a fight with Namor?
Captain Marvel #15 – Marvel
Everyone is assembled and Stark has a plan. Supreme Vox wants the DNA and begins a collection.
All who’s left is Captain Marvel.
Conan the Barbarian #13 – Marvel
As always, Conan gets himself mixed up in something he doesn’t want to be apart of. Trials of strength and a maze full of traps. As a Conan fan you will enjoy this issue.
Guardians of the Galaxy #2 – Marvel
Continuing off from issue #1, the team is fighting the Old New Gods.
Quill gets captured and the Black Hole Bomb along with him.
Is Quill able to make the ultimate sacrifice? Hercules is freed in the process.
Marvels Black Widow Prelude #2 – Marvel
A recap of her history in the movies? The end leaves off before the infinity wars.
Revenge of Cosmic Ghost Rider #3 – Marvel
We see the deal made to become Ghost Rider.
Then some action fighting that is then followed by the deal he makes to lose the Ghost Rider.
Can we call him Cosmic Frank now?
Valkyrie Jane Foster #8 – Marvel
A mysterious force attacks everything. The Avengers show up to help, Spider-man makes a few funny remarks. Thor and Jane go down to find the cause.
Plunge #1 –DC Comics
From Joe Hill comes this horror comic. It is very wordy and not a lot of action, much like the opening scene of a movie. With time I hope it gets better.
