Review: Guardians of the Galaxy #2

Guardians of the Galaxy #2

Things wrap up quick in Guardians of the Galaxy #2. In what could have been a drawn-out four or five-issue arc, instead, we get things shaken up after just two. And wow, things are shaken up.

Writer Al Ewing keeps things moving at a frenetic pace. This rag-tag version of the Guardians of the Galaxy are up against the gods of Olympus. Things aren’t looking good. They’re outnumbered and outclassed and taking heavy losses. But, these are the Guardians of the Galaxy and that’s what they’re generally up against.

What Ewing delivers though is heart. There’s some events in the comic that are sure to be fake outs. But, there’s emotion on multiple levels. There’s the desperation of the team. There’s the hurt of the battle. Finally, there’s the loss of a team member. Guardians of the Galaxy #2 has a flair for the dramatic and pulls it all off with highs and lows.

The art by Juann Cabal helps a lot. With color by Federico Blee and lettering by Cory Petit the art delivers some of that emotion. There’s shocking horror moments delivered just through visiuals. But, it’s how each character acts and what’s on their faces that really delivers the punches to the gut. Beyond that, there’s some beautiful art with one particular page being absolutely beautiful and had me lingering to take it in.

Guardians of the Galaxy #2 wraps up a quick story arc. In those two issues it delivers a rollercoaster ride of a story. There’s some shocking moments and a true feeling of desperation throughout. It captures that underdog essence that makes Guardians of the Galaxy a great team and series.

Review: Ant-Man #1

Ant-Man #1

Ant-Man’s back in his own series and things just aren’t working out for him. Scott Lang’s broke after his business collapsed and he learned the hard way superheroing doesn’t pay much. Ant-Man #1 catches us up on all of this making it a good starting point for new readers.

Lang’s living in a literal ant hill as he hopes to get a job doing the superhero thing. He’s now a “hero for hire.” Writer Zeb Wells sets Lang up so there’s some sympathy. You feel a bit bad for him as things haven’t worked out and he’s struggling.

And Wells really rubs in how bad Lang’s doing with digs by his daughter. She’s living with her mom and step-dad and things seem to be in a much better spot there. That just makes Scott come off more as the down on his luck dad. And you feel a bit bad for him.

But, the comic isn’t all sads. Wells makes sure to include a lot of humor so there’s some levity to Scott’s situation. That includes his first job and where that takes him. Where the humor can be fit in, it is. That also gives the comic some nice highs and lows with an ebb and flow that keeps the pacing going well.

The art by Dylan Burnett is an interesting style. With color by Mike Spicer and coloring by Cory Petit there’s a unique style to it all with a blockier look to the characters. It’s hard to describe but it’s a look and design that stands out. The art team also seems to have fun with playing with perspectives at time emphasizing Ant-Man’s schtick.

The comic is a fun one as expected. Ant-Man #1 has enough unique jokes and takes that makes it stand out as well. There’s been so many different volumes and a lot of ground covered but this debut also feels unique in a few ways. It’s still able to deliver something new to readers.

Review: Miles Morales: The End

Miles Morales: The End

Throughout January, Marvel is telling the final tales for numerous characters in a series of one-shots. It’s unclear exactly what the point of “The End” comics are, beyond just telling a story. It’s unknown if there’s any impact on Marvel itself or how in continuity these stories are. Kicking it off, Miles Morales: The End, feels like just a one-shot. A predictable one at that.

Written by Mile Morales: Spider-Man writer Saladin Ahmed, Miles Morales: The End isn’t a bad comic but it also isn’t all that exciting either. The story takes place in the future where germs have ravaged the world and a haven exists in Brooklyn. Their greatest threat isn’t the germs around them but ravaging bands of humans thus setting up a clash.

Ahmed’s story is entertaining in a quick read sort of way but lacks impact. The story itself we’ve seen before in various forms and without a real emotional hook it falls short. For fans of Miles Morales, there might be a bit more there as hints abound as to the future of his supporting cast. But, beyond those, the comic feels pretty straightforward and generally unoriginal.

Part of the problem is the one-shot itself. The comic is limited in the amount it can cover leaving some of the more interesting aspects on the shelf and unexplained. There’s an interesting set-up here but things feel generally rushed and not too deep. That all combines for a shallow read that leaves you wondering what the point was.

The art by Damion Scott is good. With color by Dono Sánchez-Almara and lettering by Cory Petit there’s a style to it that has a kinetic energy about it. It’s not all good as some details are hard to tell, especially in Miles’ debut. But, there’s just an energy about the comic to gives it the bit of pick-up that makes the overall comic something to check out.

Miles Morales: The End is worth reading but not something to rush out for. We’ll see what the rest of the one-shots bring as the whole might be better than the individual issues. There may be a point in the future where the comic matters a bit more but at this point it feels like a one-shot that’s generally forgettable.
