Astro City #51 comic reviewAstro City #51 continues the theme started in Astro City #50 as we hear from more survivors of those touched by the supernatural telling their stories the in support group led by Michael Tenicek. We get the terrifying tale of Rose Wilkerson who was saved from a giant spider-creature by the Honor Guard (unfortunately her son was not so lucky). It’s a heart-wrenching opening, but from there the comic takes an even darker turn as the grieving mother turns her anger on Michael who (because his wife was taken out of existence) she thinks is a fraud. How to you prove something that, according to the current timeline, never existed?

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #20

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #20 comic reviewTeenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #20 features Raphael and Alopex working together to free animals at Null Industries before they can be mutated. There’s plenty of action here as the pair square of against the murderous Zodi and the equally scary (but apparently far less-murderous) Krisa who Alopex is able to reason with long enough for our heroes to successfully finish their mission.

Of all the newer Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles characters Alopex is my favorite. Designed by Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman, the mutant Arctic Fox is a perfect fit for the craziness of of TMNT. I like the pairing of Alopex and Raph together, particularly in a heavy-action story like this one. The issue also raised my curiosity about Krisha. Given Zodi’s decision to cover for the newcomer with their boss it will be interesting to see where Krisha’s path leads in the coming months.

Jessica Jones #18 comic reviewThe aptly-titled “The Big Goodbye” isn’t only writer Brian Michael Bendis’ final comic on the character created but it’s also one of the last comics of Bendis’ run at Marvel before moving to DC. The set-up gives us a Jessica a bit more in control than usual, while the world around her is still quite crazy. Hired by the girlfriend of the Armadillo (a D-list Marvel character if there ever was one) to find the unfortunate sod who has being picking fights with all the wrong super-hero types and convince him to come home leads Jessica to conversations with various heroes including Spider-Man, the other Spider-Man, the Thing, and Ironheart.
