Review: America Chavez: Made in the USA #1

America Chavez: Made in the USA #1

American Chavez is a character I only know a bit about. She’s been in various comics I’ve read as a member of a team but as far as her origin and the specific details I know very little. I know about her moms, her general powers, and the dimension-hopping but there are absolutely gaps in my knowledge. In a way, America Chavez: Made in the USA #1 feels refreshing as a comic I could step in to and get caught up.

America Chavez: Made in the USA #1 drops the reader into the world of America Chavez. The initial battle is a way to catch up on the character delivering a bit of her personality and setting up what’s to come. It teases her families and “origin” in some ways. Though specifics aren’t all laid out, the comic does a solid job of giving the reader enough to feel like they’re not missing anything. Writer Kalinda Vazquez delivers an inclusive comic in that way. New readers shouldn’t feel overwhelmed while long-time fans should be intrigued by what’s new and the direction of the series.

America Chavez: Made in the USA #1 has an interesting theme and aspect to it in an exploration of “home”. The comic’s title is “Made in the USA” and it’s that aspect of Chavez’s life that seems to be the focus here. She might be from another world but this is a look at the family that raised her in the USA. If this is all new to the character, that’s news to me, but the direction seems interesting.

Carlos Gomez handles the art with Jesus Aburtov on color and lettering by Travis Lanham. The art is pretty solid delivering a lot of action throughout. This is a comic with a quick pacing as much of it is America doing battle with either giant moles or a mysterious dome. Things look good and the comic has a certain energy about it that feels fitting for the character. There’s a lot packed in with pages filled with so much to check out and look at. But, witht hat, things get a bit cluttered with the visuals not quite delivering a clear message as to what’s going on. There’s a choppiness in both art and narrative at times.

America Chavez: Made in the USA #1 is a decent start. While it could have been improved in some ways, it’s a solid introduction to the character for new readers. It sets up an intriguing mystery and has a clear voice about it. With the character about to be in the spotlight, the comic does a solid job as a starting point for people to discover America and her world.

ENIAC #1

Wednesdays (and now Tuesdays) are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this week.

Allergic (Graphix) – Maggie is getting a new puppy but finds out she’s allergic to anything with fur. This si the mission to find the perfect pet!

America Chavez: Made in the USA #1 (Marvel) – The character takes center stage soon in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe and this series seems to start setting the ground so she does the same in the comic universe as well.

The Antifa Super Soldier Cookbook (Silver Sprocket) – What if everything the Right thought about the Left was real? An ANTIFA operative is about to get an upgrade and become a full-fledged super-soldier!

BRZRKR #1 (BOOM! Studios) – The Keanu Reeves/Matt Kindt written comic series is here. It has a hell of a lot of buzz due to Reeves and brought in a massive amount on Kickstarter. We’re excited we get to finally read it.

Chariot #1 (AWA Studios) – A military weapon in the form of a muscle car. That alone has us in for this.

Crime Syndicate #1 (DC Comics) – We head to a newly returned Earth-3 where these evil versions of our superheroes rule.

Dead Dogs Bite #1 (Dark Horse) – Seeing Tyle Boss’ name on this comic is what first got us to notice it. The story revolves around a missing person in a small town.

Demon Days: X-Men #1 (Marvel) – Peach Momoko’s new twist on the X-Men is here. We were a bit mixed on the initial preview but we’re still excited to check out a full issue. The art alone will be worth it.

ENIAC #1 (Bad Idea) – Bad Idea is officially here! We’ve read this first issue and it’s a solid debut. What does this publisher have up its sleeve? We’re expecting even more news upon release.

Infinite Frontier #0 (DC Comics) – This is the new start to the DC Universe. It’s full of possibilities and the groundwork and tease of what’s to come begins here.

Jonna and the Unpossible Monsters #1 (Oni Press) – Rainbow is looking for her sister Jonna. They’re both trying to survive in a world full of monsters driving humanity to the brink of extinction. Check out our review.

Man-Bat #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue was an intriguing look at addiction and we really want to see if the series keeps up with that theme.

Nocterra #1 (Image Comics) – The Kickstarted graphic novel is out in single issues. The world has been plunged into everlasting night. Meet Val Riggs, a ferryman who transports goods and people along deadly unlit roads.

Suicide Squad #1 (DC Comics) – With a movie out this year, the Suicide Squad is getting a shake-up and a new lineup that matches the film more. The first issue is exactly what you’d want from the series and shows readers to not get too attached to the characters.

The Swamp Thing #1 (DC Comics) – It’s a new Swamp Thing and a new vision for the character. We want to see what this new take is all about.

Transformers: Beast Wars #2 (IDW Publishing) – The cartoon is now a comic with a bit of a remix to it. The first issue set things up and now we’re getting to the good stuff.

Undone By Blood: The Other Side of Eden #1 (AfterShock) – The first series was a solid tale of revenge. We’re just hoping for more of the same.

What Unites Us (:01 First Second) – A graphic novel adaptation of Dan Rather’s essays.
