Comic Reviews with The Comic Bubble – Week of 11/18

Welcome to another weekly roundup of Ice’s comic reviews! Comics for this week: Batman Europa #1 (Of 4), The Mighty Thor #1 and Uncanny Inhumans #2!   Batman Europa #1 (Of 4) DC Written by: Matteo Casali & Brian Azzarelo Art by: Jim Lee Batman Europa is a special limited series that was supposed to be published ten years ago.

That said, that’s only teased for a scene with (adult) Beast as the rest of the issue focuses on two the two storylines that will serve as main themes through the series: Black Bolt trying to reclaim his son from Kang The Conqueror and Medusa with her squad showing that Inhumans are not to be feared and are here to help. It is very evident of the eight month jump after Secret Wars with how much the characters have grown (and no, not in height) since the last volume. You can see this with how some of the characters have better control and usage of their powers and how well they’re working with one of the new guys as if they’ve been around for a long time (which they have, because you know… eight months later…). While the credits page…
