My Thoughts, Solicited: August 2015 Solicitations

As summer goes on, it gets hotter and the same thing can be said for comics! Great series continue to be great, old favorites come back again, some in new forms (that being comics, of course) and new things that are just awesome from the get-go. See what the look-out books for August are and make sure to grab ‘em when they come out!       LANTERN CITY #4 Authors: Matthew Daley & Mairghread Scott Artist: Carlos Magno Cover Artist: Benjamin Carré When Sander discovers that his family is missing, Lizel informs him that they might be in the Underground, a dangerous city hidden in subterranean caverns beneath Lantern City.   Company: Boom! Studios  My Thoughts: With two issues out, this has been a great series so far. With some steampunk hints to it, and characters that are very entertaining, this is a great Boom title for all to read. The one question to wonder; is this an ongoing or a mini? The solicits don’t mean “Of [whatever number here]” but shipping lists do. What gives? There’s potential for this to go for quite some time, so hopefully it does.   DC COMICS BOMBSHELLS #1 Written by MARGUERITE BENNETT Art…

Comic Reviews with The Comic Bubble: Week of 7/22

Welcome to another weekly roundup of Ice’s comic reviews!  Comics for this week: Guardians of Knowhere #1, Flash #42 and Old Man Logan #3!   Guardians of Knowhere #1 Marvel Written by: Brian Michael Bendis Art by: Michael Deodato The Guardians of the Galaxy finally get their Secret Wars tie-in. Seeing who’s writing it, you might groan. “Oh great… Bendis!”, you’re likely thinking. Brian is a very hit or miss writer, but when he hits, he hits ‘em good. This one, I have to say, is a definite hit. The team for this Secret Wars tie-in is a fraction of what it once was. You have to be content with just Rocket, Drax, and Gamora. It’s possible someone else could join later as it’s just the first issue. And yes, Groot is no where to be seen. Very odd that he isn’t by Rocket’s side, but we’ll see what happens later on. The opening issue of this adventure starts out strong with Gamora (who still appears as she did after the Black Vortex event) as she’s chased by Angela (a “Thor” in this universe) for breaking a Doom law. She’s saved by Rocket and towed by a drinking, depressed Drax…

      Lando #1 Written by: Charles Soule  Art by: Alex Maleev A lot of people were unsure how Marvel would handle the Star Wars mythos once they were set to start publishing comics based off the property. Those thoughts were quickly put to rest as Marvel has proved they can produce excellent stories. Now we get one on Lando Calrissian, one of the most beloved characters from the original trilogy, as we see what he’s up to before running Cloud City.
