It was a slow afternoon. I started watching a movie, but I was bored with it so quickly that I just did not want to continue it. With all of that, I decided to go ahead and do another Comic Catch-Up.
Nightcrawlers #1. “Voices of Fire”. Written by Si Spurrier with art by Paco Medina. This is the next book in the Sins of Sinister X-Men storyline. I really disliked this one too. I was somewhat interested in the overall storyline, but this brought it to a sudden end for me. And I have always enjoyed the character of Nightcrawler, but this was not my bag.
Department of Truth #8. “The Man in the Black Helicopter” We return to the world of Cole Turner and the diving back into the conspiracy theory stories are fun. We were introduced to a new big guy. Department of Truth continues to be one of the more intelligent and confusing series around.
That Texas Blood #11-12. Creative team: Chris Condon and Jacob Phillips. The second arc of the series comes to a close with a solid conclusion with Joe Bob finishing his story of 1981. I enjoyed this arc as much as the first one. That Texas Blood has been one of the most creative and original creations of the last few years.
Ms. Marvel: Beyond the Limit #1. Written by Samira Ahmed and drawn by Andres Genolet. Kamala spends some time on vacay in Chicago. And then, something weird started to go down. Bollywood? Loki on an elephant? What is happening? I can’t wait to find out. I do love Kamala.
Wolverine #30. “Father Knows Beast“. Okay. Not sure what exactly is going on here. I have not followed the X-Men much over the last few years, so I was pretty shocked to see Beast being such a monster. Then, watching Wolverine kill Beast was unbelievable. I guess I should follow the X-Men closer than I have been. I do not collect Wolverine, but I liked the cover so I picked this up.
Grim #5. “Death & Dying in Las Vegas” Written by Stephanie Phillips and drawn by Flaviano. Jessica Harrow comes face to face with Death and discovered that Death was actually her father. It was a massive issue with some major events happening. I really have been enjoying this series catch-up.
Shang-Chi and the Ten Rings #5 & 6. The Game of Rings came to the conclusion as the ultimate owner of the Ten Rings is determined. We also got the background of the Ten Rings.
King Conan #2. “Conan’s Last Stand at the Edge of the World.” Jason Aaron was the writer and Muhmud Asrar was the artist. This book continue the war with the zombies on the boat and then another section dealing with King Conan and his son.
Stillwater #13. “Some Sort of Miracle.” Chip Zdarsky wrote the book and Ramon K. Perez does the art. Things start to move toward what they claim is the final arc of the series. Galan is preparing to take the war to Daniel and the others.
