Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man and X-23!

COMIC REVIEWS!!!

208209_1192996_1003The Amazing Spider-Man #1 (2018)

Easily one of my most anticipated comics of the year is the relaunch of Amazing Spider-Man. Despite Nick Spencer’s involvement (no, I’m still not over Secret Empire), the fact that Invincible artist Ryan Ottley is making this his first comic since the end of the Image series is more than enough to get me to stand up and pay attention. With an artist known for big, bombastic art like Ottley, it’s easy to expect that this opening issue will be a good showcase for him, but I’m more surprised by the fact that Amazing Spider-Man #1 seems to indicate that the Nick Spencer that wrote Superior Foes of Spider-Man is back as well.

DC Comics have become the go-to publisher for intercompany crossovers lately. From the Green Lantern Corps meeting the crew of the Enterprise to Batman and the Ninja Turtles teaming up, DC has done some pretty wild crossovers the past few years. But none are as wild as Justice League/Power Rangers, which features, well, the Justice League teaming up with the Power Rangers. This is one crossover that could be really dumb, but after checking out the first issue, I can easily say that so far the Tom Taylor and Stephen Byrne crossover is one hell of an awesome ride.

All-New, All-Different!

allnewalldifferentmarvel-138578-ede6fAs expected, Marvel has started to reveal what their universe will look like after Secret Wars wraps, and while it would be nice to finally get through an event without having what’s coming next spoiled, that’s clearly not the name of the game for the House of Ideas. However, the two images Marvel has released for their “All-New, All-Different Marvel” not-a-reboot do bring up a lot of questions, and actually lives up the title of “All-Different”.
