Review: Captain America: Steve Rogers #17

I did my best going into reading Captain America: Steve Rogers #17 with an open mind as I’ve not been impressed with the greater Secret Empire storyline. There’s some good here as it fills in some gaps and answer questions that have been out there like Magneto’s role in Roger’s Nazi Hydra empire, a bit more about the Inhuman internment, and generally Rogers’ justification of it all.

The crux of the story is a sit down interview with Steve Rogers where all questions are on the table except the mass murder he committed in Las Vegas. What follows is a comic that doesn’t quite fit into what’s depicted in other series and generally is a poor attempt at justification in the guise of storytelling. Reported Sally Floyd is chosen to interview Rogers as she also interviewed him during the Civil War (which opens up a who bunch of interesting things with Cap being Hydra then that hasn’t really been explained). She’s given instructions by Dr. Faustus as to not ask about Las Vegas (which also questions why Faustus doesn’t mind control her to not do it).

The resulting comic is a back and forth poor attempt at Frost/Nixon with the reporter acting as a foil for us readers to understand Rogers’ thinking of this all. More jobs are mentioned, national security and safety are brought up, pretty much the usual things that justify fascism and the Hydra take over.

There are some big issues in that Las Vegas is shown as a giant crater in the ground, which contradicts what we saw in Secret Empire #2 with some heroes trying to save survivors. But… details. And for a group that’s all about symbolism and co-opting, why is Cap in green fatigues instead of his uniform?

But, the difficulty of this issue is not just the lack of creativity, it’s the issue it feels like Nick Spencer is attempting to justify the story to us the reader with some subtle jabs along the ways to his “haters.” It’s no secret there’s been lots of criticism, from this site included, and there’s been a willingness of comic readers and fans to speak up about the tone deafness of it all. Unfortunately, like he did in Captain America: Sam Wilson, Spencer feels like he has taken that real world conversation and moved it to the page spoken through Captain America, again making it apparent that the characters are nothing but mouthpieces for him as opposed to his attempting to properly channel the character themselves.

If a bland story wasn’t enough of a reason to skip this issue, the are by Andres Guinaldo and Ramon Bachs with colors by Rachelle Rosenberg is stilted and just odd at times. Rogers doesn’t look like Rogers and short cuts of lack of detail are too often the case and too hard to ignore. The comic looks and feels like a second tier event spin off comic which too often have questionable art and feel like cash ins. What makes it all worse is there are moments when the art is great, the above is an example (I like how it’s framed).

With art that’s just not up to par and a story that feels like a writer attempting to justify an entire event, Captain America: Steve Rogers #17 falls flat in so many ways. It’s another example of a poorly thought out event that’s being driven in odd ways with mixed messages. An issue that gives a little more depth feels more like a Twitter rant justifying its own existence.

Marvel Teases More Runaways

With a new show coming, it shouldn’t be any surprise we’ll be getting a new Runaways comic.

Review: I Am Groot #1

When the Guardians of the Galaxy get caught in a wormhole, a smaller-than-normal Groot is separated billions of light-years away from the team. Falling to a planet below, Groot discovers he is on an entirely alien and unknown world full of strange creatures and societies. Seriously underdeveloped and with nobody who can understand him, Groot will need to make the journey to the center of this world and find the way back to his family!

Take the hilarious, fresh, and over the top I Hate Fairyland and mix in Baby Groot and you have I Am Groot, the new series that feels like it takes a one-note joke and attempts to run with it.

Written by Christopher Hastings I Am Groot #1 is cute and fun and not a whole lot else. If you like Baby Groot, you’ll like the issue. If you’re tired of him already, then you won’t. It really is that simple.

The story sees Groot up to no good as a child, pressing buttons he’s not supposed to (sound familiar?) and getting himself launched into a weird dimension where he’ll go on a journey with weird twisted creatures in a strange land (hence the I Hate Fairyland comparison).

With the fact our main character can only say three words, a lot of the story is left to artist Flaviano whose colors with Marcio Menyz breathe some impressive life into the comic. Everything is very expressive and again reminiscent of Skottie Young’s work (again with the comparison). That’s not a bad thing as I love Young’s work. Everything is over the top with a lot of the emotions and “words” of Groot expressed through his body language and eyes. The fact they’re able to “say” so much through that is actually impressive and the art is the draw of the book enhancing the cute tone of it all.

I Am Groot doesn’t break ground instead delivering a (too) familiar story with a character I’m already worn out by. It’s cute though and definitely a comic geared towards Groot fans or the younger set getting into comics. It’s one that might work as a digest or graphic novel, but the first issue is enough that I want to see where it all goes and if we can be delivered more than just three words over and over.

Review: Luke Cage #1

Like a good number of folks, I was sorely disappointed when Marvel Comics decided to pull the plug on David F. Walker and Sanford Greene‘s superb Power Man And Iron Fist series after an all-too-brief run, but at today’s “Hollywood First, Comics Second” iteration of the so-called “House Of Ideas,” I guess it was too be expected — after all, Luke and Danny both have “stand-alone” series going on at Netflix, and are apparently only “allowed” to team up as part of the forthcoming The Defenders, so it only stands to reason that the same set-up would would be making its way over to the printed page. On the plus side, Walker is still writing the new solo Luke Cage book, but still — you knew damn well going in that the light-hearted, comedic tone of PMIF would probably go by the wayside in favor of a more sober-minded, tonally-similar-to-the-TV-show iteration of everyone’s favorite bulletproof Hero For Hire, and sure enough, there’s not a single “fiddle-faddle” to be had in this new comic.

That being said, it’s still a fun and engaging read, even if it’s a bit more buttoned-down. Walker makes a surprise move by taking Luke out of his familiar NYC environs and transplanting him to New Orleans (at least for the opening story arc), and that proves to be a smart storytelling choice given that a new (if temporary) locale certainly lends itself to a new approach, and goes some way toward putting his protagonist in the same situation his readers are in — navigating through unfamiliar, perhaps even uneasy, but ultimately exciting territory.

The plot here revolves around Luke heading to The Big Easy to attend the funeral of the borderline-mad doctor who gave him the imitation super-soldier serum that turned him into a hero in the first place only to find that he’d made some less-than-savory contacts as he continued his experimental work in subsequent years, and one of these shady characters may have had a hand his demise, which is being sold to his friends and acquaintances as a suicide. Luke is pretty quick to smell a rat, of course, street-smart guy that he is, but there are those even more powerful than him who don’t take too kindly to his snooping around — isn’t that always the case?

We’re looking at pretty tried and true Chandler-esque stuff here, it’s gotta be said, but hey — it’s executed well, and nobody has a better grasp on Cage than Walker, obviously. He makes the cardinal mistake of telegraphing his cliffhanger halfway through the book (come on, whenever you mention a character who hasn’t been heard from in forever and a day you know they’re bound to turn up at the end), but even that plays out as more of a “yeah, I should have seen that coming” moment rather than a “hey, I saw that coming” moment, so it’s all good in my book. Do you really go into a comic like this looking to have the wheel re-invented before your eyes, anyway?

Unfortunately, I’m a little less enthusiastic about Nelson Blake II‘s art than I am the script. It’s certainly clean, crisp, and reasonably expressive, no question about that, but it all feels a bit too meticulous for a “street-level” hero in my own humble estimation, and he skimps on the background details (when he even bothers to include any) to a degree that I find both irritating and, I’m sorry to say, lazy. Marcio Menyz redeems the visuals somewhat with his cinematic color palette that enhances the storytelling quite nicely (see the above sequence for proof of that which I speak), and Rahzzah‘s powerful, dynamic cover is “Classic Cage” all the way, but the line art in this book just doesn’t give you enough for your $3.99 (which I paid out of my own pocket) to make you feel like it was necessarily money well spent.

Odds are that I’ll stick around to see how the first arc plays, out, though, and go from there. Luke Cage #1 didn’t knock my socks off, by any means, but the story, while predictable, was engrossing enough to pique my curiosity and Walker, in my experience, always delivers a payoff that rewards your continued reading. I don’t see myself loving this comic the way I did PMIF, but I liked it well enough, and there’s no shame in reading comics you like.
