Alienated #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Three teenagers stumble upon an unearthly entity as it’s born. That cute little pet is a super-predator in the making, and it’s in need prey. The concept sounds fascinating and BOOM! has been nailing it as far as quality.

Big Black Stand At Attica (BOOM! Studios) – The true story about the uprising at Attica Prison.

Dragonfly & Dragonflyman #4 (AHOY Comics) – One of the best comics out there that’s both a love letter, homage, and spoof of comics throughout history. A must for fans of the superhero genre.

Go To Sleep, I Miss You: Cartoons From the Fog of New Parenthood (First Second) – As a parent, these short cartoons are so funny and hit home.

Gwen Stacy #1 (Marvel) – Marvel’s been doing a solid job of filling in history recently and this new series gives us the unknown history of Gwen Stacy.

Hawkeye Freefall #3 (Marvel) – The first two issues were so much fun and we’re expecting more of the same.

Rai (2019) #4 (Valiant) – One of the best comics on the market right now. Each issue has been fantastic.

Tartarus #1 (Image Comics) – A cadet is framed for crimes agains tthe empire after discovering her mother was a ruthless warlord. Sounds entertaining to us!

Review: Hawkeye Freefall #2

Hawkeye Freefall #2

Huh, didn’t expect that ending at all. Hawkeye Freefall #2 brings the surprises, the laughs, and the action as the question of who Ronin is swirls.

Writer Matthew Rosenberg delivers a fantastic issue that is a worthy successor of the beloved Hawkeye comics over recent years.

Someone’s running around in Clint Barton’s old Ronin costume as Barton deals with being “the worst Avenger.” He does what he does best which is stumble at trying to good. He attends a charity event to impress his girlfriend. He fights a d-list villain and has trouble doing so. Through it all, the expected charm is all there and it’s hard to dislike Barton. He’s a jerk and at times an idiot. But, he’s our jerk and idiot.

What Rosenberg does really well is deliver laughs and pacing that puts a smile on the reader’s face. There’s a charm about it all. Though in reality, Barton’s an ass. He attempts to do the right thing though goes about it the wrong way. His heart is generally in the right place. He also delivers the witty one-liners and internal monologue so many wish we had. Rosenberg is able to give us the character interactions that are hard to not enjoy on a comedic level.

The art by Otto Schmidt is fantastic. The characters look solid but it’s the small details here. The suit Tony Stark wears to a charity event will keep you focused. Luke Cage’s shirt slowly being destroyed in battle is a sight gag that takes a bit to notice. It’s the little things here like body language that really makes the comic’s art shine.

Hawkeye Freefall #2 is a fantastic comic. There’s a fantastic mix of comedy and action. The former comes from some unexpected places like the Hood. The series is just a fun read that has you wanting to immediately read more. Then you get to the end of this issue and immediately want to go back and read it again.

Shadow of the Batgirl

Wednesdays 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 Wednesday.

Astronauts: Women on the Final Frontier (First Second) – A graphic novel that explores the first women in space. Entertaining and educational.

Criminal #12 (Image Comics) – It’s the end of the story arc but this series is so good it should be on your pulllist anyways. Criminal is a must for comic fans, especially those who enjoy crime/noir stories.

Ginseng Roots #3 (Uncivilized Comics) – Craig Thompson’s autobiographical comic series about growing up around the ginseng industry. It’s very educational and also rather meta at times. Beautiful art and interesting narrative makes this series of the year material.

Hawkeye Freefall #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was a lot of fun picking up the banter and pacing of the previous Hawkeye series. The mystery of who the new Ronin is has us really intrigued.

Protector #1 (Image Comics) – A new sci-fi series that mixes Cona, Mad Max, and The Expanse and takes place in a far-future North America. A tribe must deal with an old-world demon.

Quantum and Woody #1 (Valiant) – The world’s worst superheroes are back and as always it’s chaotic, funny, and a hell of a lot of fun.

Ravencroft #1 (Marvel) – A piece of the bigger puzzle Marvel is putting together. Ravencroft is re-opened and where this goes and where this leads has us scratching our heads.

Shadow of the Batgirl (DC Comics) – DC has been killing it with their graphic novels for young readers. Batgirl is missing and Cassandra Cain attempts to take on the heroic mantle.
