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.

Review: Black Widow #4

Black Widow #4

Black Widow #4 continues what is a hell of a series. Each issue has built on the last to deliver an action-packed thriller whose twists, turns, and actions entertain. We get a better sense as to what has gone on as Black Widow’s memory comes back and she does what she does best, kick ass.

Writer Kelly Thompson just ups everything and delivers the outlandish story in a way that works. We now know where Natasha’s kid came from and a better sense of her husband. We also are delivered a real connection between them all upping the stakes of everything.

Thompson also makes sure to keep things fun. Whether it’s Clint and Bucky’s back and forth or the villains realizing how screwed they are, there’s some laughs keeping the overall tone light. This is an action packed story with a smile and a wink.

It also has a hell of a style. Elena Casagrande and Carlos Gómez split the art duties between the past and present. Jordie Bellaire and Federcio Blee split the color in the same way. There’s clearly a lot of coordination and work being down between the teams as sequences mirror each other in some ways. The use of panels really emphasizes the flow of the action. There’s also a solid amount of detail when it comes to faces and body language to really make the emotions pop. The colors too really differentiate between the two time periods of the comic.

Black Widow #4 continues what is a fantastic series. It really brings a lot of fun and action. Each issue delivers laughs and cool moments. This is one of the best debuts for the character in years. If you’ve missed out, it’s not too late to catch up and see the quality you’ve been missing.
