News and Reviews

Rogues #1 review

The Rogues are not only one of the Flash’s biggest villains and one of the most important in the Scarlet Speedster’s vast history, but also one of the most charismatic groups of villains in all of comics, so when renowned DC Comics writer Joshua Williamson decided to write a miniseries about these characters for the company’s Black Label imprint (line of comics for mature readers), there was a lot of reason for excitement.

Ben Reilly: Spider-Man (2022) #3

Ben Reilly Spider-Man #3 review

Ben Reilly is a character that has developed a significant fanbase over the years and there are some reasons for that: being a clone of Peter Parker that was first introduced in that messy 90s storyline called The Clone Saga, this character is a bit of a mirror image to Peter (of course, they are clones), only a bit more prone to action and also a nice callback to the early days of Spider-Man’s adventures, which was of course the goal of the writers at the time.

Captain Carter #1 summary

If you’re still obsessed with Peggy Carter’s super-soldier from the What If? series, now’s your chance to read more about her adventures!

Captain Carter #1 gives a faithful albeit formulaic debut to Peggy Carter. The issue opens with three nations fighting over the ownership of Captain Carter until she stamps her authority. This scene sets up the tone, and issues that are explored throughout the issue. Peggy still wears the Union Jack to fight enemies, but she’s not a symbol of a superpower – she’s a character of her own. There’s a powerful scene with the British Prime Minister that establishes Peggy’s autonomy. 

Peggy is a delight throughout the issue. She’s curious about the new world, often struggles to make sense of quirks but never verges on the annoying old lady motif. The scene where she visits her family’s burial ground is particularly strong and emotional. Captain Carter #1 features ample actions with Peggy often exploding into her super soldier dynamics but most of the pages are filled to set the world for her. 

 

Trial of the Amazons #1 Summary

If you’re dying to read a mega-crossover event focused on the wonder woman lore, you’re in luck! Trial of the Amazons #1 brings the best of the Amazons, Wonder Woman, and Wonder Girl narratives for a heavyweight contest at Themyscira. 

Doom’s Doorway is now a world-ending threat for the Amazonians and they need a new protector of the portal. Queen Nubia faces the challenge to find the most capable warrior and her plans are bolstered by Yara Flor’s Esquecidas. But they are swiftly challenged by the Bana-Mighdall tribe, led by Queen Faruka. The long-ignored Bana-Mighdall returns to Themyscira to stake their claims and govern the Amazon with an iron fist. Ideologies clash, factions are formed, and combats fuel the tension.

Trial of the Amazons #1 is a narrative-driven story with each dialogue carrying its weight. But Yara Flor’s entrance is definitely exciting and Wonder Woman does some stunts as well! This is a world-building event primed to peak with an out-and-out battle at the Contest! Exciting times ahead!
