Yeah, so I went on a mini-vacation last week and missed updating you on the comics I bought. Now you get two weeks worth and I get to tell you about some really great comics! Let's not waste time, let's get right to it!
We'll start with the second issue of A-Force. I was pretty interested in where this was going and the second issue didn't really disappoint. I think the weakest part of this series is Battleworld itself. The A-Force team is very interesting, but the "rules" of Battleworld both set the stage for the action and restrict the potential for what the team could be. Super-hero teams need to work in a world that is grounded with known rules and status quo. When the world that serves as the backdrop is still very new and a jumbled mix of other worlds, it makes it hard to fit the new team in a proper context. I think I'll like A-Force more post-Secret Wars, but I'll stick with the team until we get there.
Next up, another second issue, Starfire #2. If you recall, this was another "wait and see" comic that was going to be purchased solely on the value of the cover. Well, obviously the cover was good enough to warrant a purchase and the interiors don't disappoint either. If you are looking for a lighthearted alien super-hero comic, this will scratch that it. I'm in.
And that will do it for these two weeks. Some pretty good stuff overall. If you are looking for solid reads, go get 1872 and Lando #1, and maybe chase it with Starfire.
