This week’s comics:
Huh. [B]Miles Morales Spider-Man #12[/B] just ends. It feels like Bendis had to wrap up a ton of plots all at once because Secret Wars is wiping the ultimate universe. Dagger definitely wants to break off a bit of Miles though.
[B]Deadpool #45[/B] was a class act. Great end to the comics.
[B]Spider-Woman #6[/B] continues the fun tone from #5. Good stuff.
The problem with a number of the Convergence books is they’re all part 1 of 2, so they’re mostly setup. The writers don’t get enough time to really revisit the characters because
they’re setting up their Convergence situation.
[B]Convergence #1[/B] is all setup, but it’s important for those who’ve been following Earth 2, as it handles the fates of certain characters from the end of that book.
[B]Superman [/B]surprised me, because it’s a solid book, but I realized that I don’t miss Lois & Clark and I don’t miss the old Superman costume. Didn’t understand that until I read this. Like meeting an old, beloved friend, but realizing you’ve moved on.
[B]Nightwing/Oracle[/B] on the other hand, reminded me how much I miss Nightwing, Oracle, and the old Starfire/Nightwing relationship. Loved it, even if the art and a bit rough.
[B]Speed Force[/B], [B]Atom[/B], and [B]Batgirl[/B] featured the return of certain characters I’ve missed - Wally West, Cassandra Cain, Stephanie Brown, and [SPOILER]Ryan Choi[/SPOILER], but the books themselves were lackluster. Either they were confusing, boring, or ugly.
