Review: Elektra #2

In part two of the “Always Bet On Red story arc writer Matt Owens repairs some of the damage that the mostly Elektra-less first issue did. Elektra #2 focuses more on Elektra but thanks to the way the artist focuses mostly on her figure and the writer refuses to give her clear motivation or depth, it still isn’t really an Elektra comic yet. The title character still has no agency, no real plan, and overall isn’t very Elektra-like. The situation that she finds herself in seems unlikely and convoluted, there is no clear reason why someone itching to get a fresh start would attack a facility that sent people to kill her for helping a bartender without doing any recon first.

Most if the story seems implausible and the villain, Arcade and his henchmen/women, seem pretty boring, one note, and basic. There is a bit of a Running Man ripoff in the plot of this arc that makes little sense, even to Elektra who remarks during what should be the “oh sh**” moment in the issue that “Somewhere Bullseye is laughing at me.” She’s probably right, he got a realistic, true to character story arc in his new comic, complete with a great story, great action, and a feeling of agency.  Elektra has been relegated to a tricked, trapped, damsel in distress in her very own series. This second issue fairs slightly better than the first issue in the arc. Yes, Owens gives us more Elektra in this issue but, instead of focusing on her character development, Owens chooses to instead focus on what crazy hijinks he can put her in.

Juan Cabal adds a bit of something to the story with his art but, not much. It’s very well drawn and, Elektra’s combat outfit isn’t overtly sexualized but he does have a full panel of her showing nothing but her midriff as she puts on her underwear. I’m not sure what seeing her bare-bellied in her boxer brief boy shorts had to do with the story at hand but it was probably one of the most detailed and modernized panels in the issue. We also got to see his artistry in the hotel scenes of her fighting off attackers in her underwear and a tank top. Bad ass, yes, but it wasn’t necessary. Her skin hugging clothing was detailed and noticeable in every panel it appeared in but, you could barely make out her face, not because it was in the middle of battle but because it looked more like a quick sketch. Further proof of the elicit and unnecessary detail to Elektra’s physique are in the almost page full of panels that showcase various body parts of our heroine and nothing more. We get a glimpse of her leg, her stomach, her bare back all in perfect focus but none of these have any real information about the story. Cabal also uses a lot of up angle perspectives in the hotel scenes, so that the readers would get a nice view of the definition of Elektra’s back side. Antonio Fabela manages to make the colors pop in some places and muted in others, it’s an interesting style choice and, in some panels it seems a bit all over the place and convoluted. The art work is C-level pandering that is solely focused on the male gaze and reducing a strong powerful, kick-ass woman to literally the sum of her parts.

This issue isn’t a complete letdown but, it’s not altogether good. It seems a lot like the writer wanted to do a comic book about Las Vegas high stakes gaming using people and just threw Elektra in it. There’s a scene after Elektra’s hotel fight where she has a”moment” with the bartender, Lauren, she saved from an abusive “boyfriend” who is now staying in her room. Elektra tells her to go back to Ohio and then she says she’s going to stay and help instead. An indication as to how poor the character development and story structure is, there are a couple of panels where Elektra urges her to go again and then they hug and nothing gets resolved but immediately after Elektra decides to run into a mystery warehouse to do battle with an unknown bad guy. In my head I wonder if they’re going to try and back pedal and make the bartender in on the whole scheme but there was never anything establishing that anyone knew Elektra was in town until after she goes after the bad guy and his minions. I also am not a fan of the reductive nature of Elektra labeling the casino boss as the bartenders “boyfriend” in this issue, especially when it’s clear in the first issue that he’s her boss taking advantage of his position, using his power to sexually assault her, and the facial injuries she sustained were from her attempting to fight him off. It seems odd for a female character who attacked the scumbag the night before for assaulting the bartender in the bathroom stall would all of a sudden see that vile encounter as a lovers spat. Overall I was more annoyed at this issue and disappointed than anything else, it was sexist, reductive and, an ill-conceived look at what should have been an amazing Elektra story.

Review: The Unworthy Thor #5

We finally get the answer to what did Fury whispered to Odinson. I will say first off, it felt very anticlimactic, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad. Like a lot of comic book moments, this felt very hyped and dragged out, but when we got to the payoff, I was scratching my head.

I won’t spoil The Unworthy Thor #5 for people who have not read it, but let’s just say it wasn’t the big moment I thought we would get, especially with an awesome writer like Jason Aaron. This could pay off down the road, so I will wait and see before I rush to judgment on that, but I just wanted more.

The Unworthy Thor #5 brings this miniseries of Odinson to a close, but it is far from the end of his story. There is a lot of setup in this issue for what seems like things that will happen down the road with Thanos, Hela, Death, that other hammer, and even The Collector. Things don’t wrap up neatly, but that is okay, because sometimes they shouldn’t. However, I still felt like I was left wanting so much more. Whether that be another issue or two, or a jaw-dropping conclusion.

Even with my slight disappointment with the ending of this series, I still enjoyed this book. It was fun to have Odinson back, while also not casting Jane out (though who knows what will happen down the road). From drinking mead to trying to rescue his home world from The Collector, to fighting talking dogs, to The Black Order, Thanos, and hanging with the best horse in the galaxy, Beta Ray Bill, I enjoyed the journey. The Mighty Thor is one of my favorite Marvel books each month, so I hope to see Odinson show up and continue his adventure next to Jane very soon.

The art by Olivier Coipel, Kim Jacinto, and Pascale Alixe has a fantasy feel to it that fits the world and lore very well. Even as we travel across space the book never loses that feeling. You truly get the feeling that this book is for Gods beating each other up, and the art depicts that in a very biblical way. The colors by Mat Lopes and Jay David Ramos bring everything to life with bright yet muted tones. It adds to the art to make a very unique and interesting style. Everything has a soft, almost dream-like feel to it.

I may not be satisfied with what was whispered to Odinson, but I did enjoy this issue. The whisper is still something that makes sense to the overall story, and still works quite well. Sometimes my expectations can be so high, that I can feel let down, but I would still recommend this comic to any fan of Odinson, Jane, someone who read Original Sin, or anyone looking for fun god fights. I mean, Beta Ray Bill is in this book, and that should be reason enough to buy it. So I will say in conclusion, that this book is worthy of a purchase. I will see myself out!

I’m Watching Iron Fist So You Don’t Have To: Episode 1 Snow Gives Way Recap

With Doctor Strange behind us, it was looking like 2017 was going to be a year blissfully free of rich white guys falling on hard times and turning to superheroism. I had forgotten, of course, about Iron Fist. But hey, at least I don’t have to relive Thomas and Martha Wayne being murdered in Crime Alley for like, the fifth year in a row.

My hopes aren’t high for this show, between multiple critics citing it as Marvel’s worst yet and Finn Jones’ poor handling of aforementioned criticism. Then the show’s writers and producers shutting down critics who suggested an Asian American Iron Fist would add nuance to the character, even though they almost cast Lewis Tan.

There’s also the fact that Iron Fist is the second Marvel property in two years that relies on cultural appropriation to develop its lead. At this point I suspect Jones must be inhumanly flexible after the reaching and bending he’s done to defend the show.

As far as I’m aware, the main reasons anyone has for watching Iron Fist are as follows:

  1. Claire Temple
  2. To get to The Defenders
  3. Zhou Cheng
  4. The Defenders though!!
  5. Colleen Wing
  6. Just have to make it to The Defenders guys, come on

In the interest of journalistic fairness, I have not read any reviews. Unless titles count, which they shouldn’t, because Twitter is inescapable. Despite this, I am prepared for the worst. I have taped photos of Rosario Dawson, Lewis Tan, and Jessica Henwick to a Homer Simpson-style inspiration board and am ready to begin viewing, and I’m trying really hard not to think about that interview where Finn Jones said he’s different from Danny Rand because he has definitely had sex before.

I feel that I am now fully prepared to begin watching a show that has been hailed as “a big superhero flop,” “can this possibly get any worse,” and “bad.” Inspiring!

Spoilers ahoy.

I’d like to say that, right off the bat, I’m not getting great vibes from the intro. I gladly sat through a season’s worth of Daredevil intros because the opening was visually interesting and the music was excellent–three episodes in I was watching the intro and living the “mind=blown” GIF when I realized Daredevil is the physical embodiment of blind justice. Jessica Jones’s intro echoed the watercolory covers from Alias and the instrumentals in it and Luke Cage tie together well.

Iron Fist’s intro isn’t nearly as interesting to watch as Daredevil and sounds like they recycled the building instrumentation of Jessica Jones. Somewhere in there, I’m guessing someone was like, “But make it sound Asian,” so they threw in a wind instrument instead of a piano.

Anyway. Danny Rand looks like that guy who shows up at a 100-level psychology class with two cans of Monster, and you can tell he’s never read the book but will participate in the discussion just to hear himself speak. At the very least, he’s wearing the same outfit. Barefoot and bearded, Danny spends the first twenty minutes of the show trying to convince people he hasn’t seen in 15 years that he is, in fact, Danny Rand, son and heir to businessman Wendell Rand.

Danny’s “Convince ‘Em” technique largely involves beating up security people at the company building, saying “I’m Danny Rand” over and over again, breaking into his childhood home, mild stalking of his former friend, Joy Meachum, and not offering to take a DNA test. This does not seem like the way a trustworthy person would go about doing things, but what do I know. Maybe DNA tests didn’t exist until Law & Order: SVU came on TV.

Rejected and still barefoot, Danny hangs out in a public park, where a nice homeless man lets him use his iPhone to confirm that the public believes Danny Rand to have died with his parents. So far, the most interesting mystery in the show is, who taught Danny to use an iPhone? If he could use an iPhone, how did he not already know this information?

Cut to the next morning, when Danny practices Tai chi unbothered on a public sidewalk. Where he found a quiet sidewalk in Manhattan, I am not sure. Let’s throw this on the mystery board with the iPhone thing.

Iron Fist starts to look up 21 minutes and 50 seconds in, which is when I recognize Jessica Henwick from the photograph taped to my wall. This introduction is immediately ruined when Danny begins to speak to her in Mandarin, which is ludicrously assumptive of him.

I can tell a man wrote this episode, because Colleen’s response is to engage with the random dirty man rather than the typical street harassment response of walking away immediately. She’s putting up signs for self-defense lessons, so she could probably handle herself if things went awry, but most women wouldn’t stick around long enough in an uncrowded area for that threat to come to fruition.

Whew. Back to the Meachums, who are discussing the dangerous threat posed by the dirty stranger invading their properties. I must say, Danny hasn’t particularly proven himself dangerous yet. I can understand why he would appear deluded to the Meachums, but the Meachums are treating this issue like Danny is waging psychological warfare on the company. Psychological warfare techniques being… clumsy assault and asking someone to tea?

We’re not even halfway through this episode yet, folks.

The next step in Danny’s Convince ‘Em Plan is to kidnap Ward Meachum by forcing Meachum into the passenger seat of his own Lexus. I’m now a little more convinced that Danny is dangerous, but still uncertain about the psychological warfare thing. As Ward threatens him with a gun that was hidden in the glovebox, Danny laments that he’s been met with nothing but hostility since his return.

I would like to take this opportunity to remind you all that Danny has offered no concrete proof that he is who he says he is, and barged into a building only to immediately begin assaulting people.

Another thing to toss on the mystery board: Why does Danny know how to drive? At one point he mentions that his dad used to let him drive around their property but I will also take this opportunity to remind you that Danny was ten when his parents’ plane crashed. Is letting ten-year-olds drive a rich people thing?

Ward tells Danny what Wikipedia has already told him. Frustrated and without answers, Danny speeds out of the parking garage, crashes into a concrete barrier, and runs away.

Back in the park, the nice man from last night gives Danny chicken parm. They have a discussion about purpose and Danny says his is to protect K’un-Lun from oppression, which means absolutely nothing to his new friend and reminds me of the uncomfortable current of white savior-ness running through the show.

With part one of the Convince ‘Em Plan failed, Danny shows up at Colleen’s dojo, where she has just finished teaching a class. Once again, he asks her to teach a class and, once again, she refuses, telling him that her studio is closing. He asks her if she’s thought about teaching Kung fu, since that makes money. If Colleen doesn’t achieve sainthood for putting up with Danny’s constant mansplaining by the end of this season, why are we even watching.

Outside of the studio, two of the Meachums’ security guards come after Danny and he fights them before escaping. You’ll never believe this, but Colleen saw all of that. The feeling I’m experiencing is foreshadowing punching me in the face.

Seemingly recovered from his Lexus death ride but having failed at happy murder time, Ward pays a visit to–gasp–his father, who definitely hasn’t died from cancer like the Meachum children told Danny he did. The Elder Meachum knows about Danny, and he isn’t happy about it. They discuss Danny’s return, wondering, “Does that mean his parents are still alive?,” “Who has he talked to?,” “How the hell did he learn martial arts?,” and “Why has he waited so long to show up?.” These are all valid questions that I would also like to know the answer to. More for the mystery board.

Back in the park, Danny discovers that his only friend has died of an apparent overdose. He sneaks back into Joy’s office where they have a frank discussion about Ward’s happy murder time and the plane crash before he realizes he’s been drugged. Danny wakes up strapped to a bed, remembering the moments of his parents’ deaths, and the episode ends.

Look. This show was neither the best thing I’ve ever seen nor the worst, because I watch bad horror movies in my spare time and Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark? It was bad. (I would like to point out that it did pass the Bechdel Test, though.) On the other hand, Iron Fist also did not give me the emotional fulfillment of watching a giant mechanical shark destroy a megalodon.

Ignoring the fact that Danny Rand should have been Asian American, the first episode suffers because it just doesn’t feel as fresh or original as Daredevil or Jessica Jones. Going up against a corporation is pretty much the theme of the Batman, Arrow, Iron Man, Daredevil, Ant-Man, and Spider-Man movies that preceded Iron Fist, and so far it’s not doing much to reinvent tropes. I couldn’t help but think about the opportunities Iron Fist could have offered for varied storytelling and bringing a well-rounded Asian American character into the MCU as I watched. I mean. Just look at the possibilities.

Instead, the story was bland, bogged down by weirdly written dialogue and the introduction of too many storylines. Danny was overly optimistic and trusting for someone who spent 15 years getting smacked in the face with practice swords while learning Kung fu in a secret city. The Meachums were at times villainous to the point of cheesiness.

An optimistic superhero is a pleasant change of pace from Bruce-Darkness-No-Parents-Wayne, but it doesn’t make up for the slow pacing, lack of character development, and writing. The white savior-ness of Danny’s character hangs over the show like a “well, actually” cloud, as does the PR disaster of Jones and the show’s producers denying that they heard or thought about Any Of That while the show was in development.

If you can ignore all of that or live in a bubble where Batman Begins doesn’t exist, this might be your show, though.

Review: Black Panther World of Wakanda #5

It’s going down! Roxane Gay brings pure fire in yet another amazing issue of Black Panther: World of Wakanda. There are Midnight Angels gone rogue, Dora Milaje taking it to the streets and cleaning house all Wakanda and, Folami acting most foul in her attempt to quench her blood lust. Everything about this issue from cover to cover is amazing and I can’t wait until the next issue. There’s so much richness, culture, and purity in this story that you feel attached to the characters. Even the villainess Folami is relatable, you still want her caught and dealt with but, you feel for her. Gay’s amazing writing gives an emotional depth and a realism to every character that she brings to life on the pages of this issue and I am here for it.

Alitha E. Martinez lays down some beautiful, dimensional lines and Roberto Poggi follows up with amazing color that brings the characters and Wakanda to life. There are beautiful and distinctive facial features for all of the variety of shades of color that the story showcases. People look like real people of color and it is wonderful, Martinez even shows different body types and characteristics making this issue even more gripping and making each character even more a part of the story.

This issue tackles so many great issues like rage, sexual assault, exploitation of the weak, and sexuality. What’s great about it is that Gay makes sure to show the ugly and beautiful sides of life in a way that makes everything seem real, human and relatable. The care she takes with the lesbian love story of two of my favorite Midnight Angels is pure magic, instead of exploiting it she makes it a part of the story because the characters are a part of the story not because they are lesbians. The way she shows the Dora dispensing justice throughout the city and keeping its bad guys in check is engaging and, the way she shows Folami’s rage and vengeance makes her relatable even though we all know she’s wrong. This issue highlights all of the amazing things that any sensible reader would love about the series and makes it accessible enough to draw in new readers. Dawn of the Midnight Angels concludes in an amazing way and I’m looking forward to the next story arc and seeing all of the great things that I am sure this stellar team has in store for us.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

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!

We’re bringing back something we haven’t done for a while, what the team thinks. Our contributors are choosing up to five books each week and why they’re choosing the books.

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

Mr. H

Top Pick: Batman/TMNT Adventures #5 (IDW Publishing) – This book has just been plain all out fun! I was skeptical of the quality it would be after the last Batman/ TMNT crossover, which was good but this story so far just ninjas the previous teams ass! It takes the very best aspect of Batman: The Animated Series and melds it together in the Turtles world. Each issue is better than the previous and even though they are leaning to The Mad Hatter being the big boss behind it all, when Tetch is written correctly he is quite the villainous force. I can’t wait to see how this joyride through my childhood icons ends.

Action Comics # 976 (DC Comics) – Well here it is, the battle for Superman’s future! Can Supes defeat Myx (not spelling his damn name) and get back his family or will he lose more than he gained in the process? All I know is if Jon becomes a casualty out of it, I’m going hunting with Kryptonite bullets. Nevertheless a good twist on a classic Superman character and I am enjoying the various runs on my hero since Rebirth. Can anyone say New New 52?

Reborn #5 (Image Comics) – I have really dug this team up of Millar and Capullo thus far. I don’t think it has tremendous long term value but the short term storyline has been fantastic. The art is some of Capullo’s best and Millar’s writing is less Millar-y than usual which keeps it at a nice tempo for me. Very interesting look into the theory of reincarnation and one that wants to make sure my pet gets all the love he can get before I meet him in the afterlife. A fun ride for sure, not ready to get out of the car yet.

Iron Fist #1 (Marvel Comics) – The timing for this couldn’t be better as I have just reached the middle of my binge watching of “Iron Fist” on Netflix and I love it. My Danny Rand – ometer is at it’s peak right now so more firery chi punching for me is a must. This book is welcome, hope it meets my kung fu needs.

 

Joe

Top Pick: The Unworthy Thor #5 (Marvel) – What did he do to make him unworthy?! It seems like this is the issue where we should finally learn what was whispered into Odinson’s ear.

Action Comics #976 (DC Comics) – The end of the fantastic Superman Reborn arc! I loved this entire run so far and this arc has been so crazy it works.

Doom Patrol #5 (DC’s Young Animal) – This is one of the most fun and wacky comics out. I am obsessed with Nick Derrington’s art and wished he was drawing everything lately.

Black Hammer #7 (Dark Horse) – It has returned! One of the best comics out in the medium and written by one of my favorite writers, Jeff Lemire.

Dept. H #12 (Dark Horse) – Matt and Sharlene Kindt have been so consistently good on this book every month. I love this cover and I am excited to return to the deep and find out whodunit.

 

Alex

Top Pick: X-O Manowar #1 (Valiant) – I have the review copy sat on my desktop just waiting to be opened up and read again, but before I did that, I realized that this was honestly one of the few comics this week I’m looking forward to reading (again) when I pick it up i print so I can see the art without the watermark on it. I can’t wait to see it.

Hulk #4 (Marvel) – I read the first issue of this entirely by accident and immediately found one of my favourite new series. The tension you feel as Jen struggles to not change into the Hulk is palpable, and so well written. I don’t even need a villain in the series, I could read about Jennifer Walters living her life all day long.

 

Paul

Top Pick: Extraordinary X-Men #20 (Marvel) – The war between the X-Men and the Inhumans has come to an end, and the X-Men need to figure out their next move. I am very excited for the upcoming ‘ResurreXion’ event and looking forward to seeing the new paths the X-Men take.

Top Pick: Hulk #4 (Marvel) – This has been a great book from the start, showing that even a superhero can be shaken to their core after traumatic events.  Jen has definitely seen her share, from losing her cousin to almost dying by Thanos’ hand. This book is doing a fantastic job of showing her struggle to try and gain back her life while keeping her Hulk side at bay. If you aren’t reading this book, jump in now while it’s still early; you won’t be disappointed.

Invincible Iron Man #5 (Marvel) – I’ve been enjoying this book and getting to know Riri Williams.  It’s a fun book, seeing her being mentored by AI Tony Stark, and seeing her show him a thing or two in the process.  This issue should be fun as well, as various heroes are approaching her to join their teams but, of course, we’ll some villains tag along.  This should be fun.

Unworthy Thor #5 (Marvel) – Will Odinson just pick up the damn hammer already?!?!

 

Brett

Top Pick: The Torture Report: A Graphic Adaptation (Arcade Publishing) – On December 9, 2014, the Senate Intelligence Committee released a report condemning the CIA for its secret brutal torture during the Bush administration. This graphic novel summarizes and makes that important document understandable for individuals. The illustrations add poignancy to the facts.

The Circle #4 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – A solid teenage horror tale that mixes fantastic art with a creepy story.

Heathen #2 (Vault Comics) – The first issue was great, the second issue is somehow better. This is a fantastic new series from a relatively new voice in comics and definitely a unique spin on things. Two words: lesbian. vikings.

Powerless #1 (Vault Comics) – Everyone has powers, but a new disease takes away those abilities. A cool concept from the upstart publisher.

Terms and Conditions (Drawn & Quarterly) – R. Sikoryak has taken the iTunes Terms and Conditions and created a word for word graphic adaptation.
