Review: Nebula #1

Nebula #1

Nebula is often a character that plays second fiddle to others. She orbits her sister Gamora or their father Thanos. Since her breakout in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, she’s dipped her toes a bit more into individuality. Nebula #1 is a big leap for the character putting her squarely in the spotlight.

And that spotlight delivers something that could be interesting though not what was expected.

Writer Vita Ayala has Nebula do what she does best, kill people as she plunders. Some of the early action is hinted at. That decision allows the reader’s imagination to go wild upping the awesome of Nebula’s mission. And that mission is… intriguing. Ayala uses the unique cybernetic nature of the character as a driver for the story and it’ll be interesting where it all drives the character. Her relationship with her sister and abuse of Thanos are characteristics I know of and I fully expected an exploration of what that does to someone. This might touch upon that in a direction I wasn’t expecting or it might go somewhere else getting here away from that. In Ayala we trust.

Claire Roe‘s art is decent. With color by Mike Spicer and lettering by Travis Lanham the issue I see is a drop in detail in some panels. Overall, the comic is consistent and looks good but there’s some work as far as Nebula’s cybernetics where the detail isn’t quite there. That detail gives the character a bit of personality as far as design. Instead of lines defining panels, it’s just a solid color. Where Roe really stands out is the upgrade Nebula gets and how she begins to see the world. Teamed with Lanham’s lettering (assuming that’s his work) the perspective is cool and different.

Nebula #1 goes in an unexpected direction and one that opens things up in numerous ways. The open road is not just for plot but also for the character. There’s something about this debut, it has a lot of potential and it’s definitely one to keep an eye on as far as a 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.

Wonder Woman #750 delivers “a Brave New World” by Scott Snyder, Bryan Hitch, Mike Spicer, and Tom Napolitano. Get a First Look.

Wonder Woman #750, on shelves this Wednesday, is an all-star 96-page celebration of the Amazon Princess by longtime favorites and acclaimed new voices! This oversized gem tells tales from Diana’s past and present, along with major implications for the future of DC’s first Super Hero!

With the publication of Wonder Woman #750, DC returns to legacy numbering for Wonder Woman, gives a glimpse into Diana’s distant past, and heads boldly towards the future!

Storytellers contributing to the issue also include Colleen Doran, Mariko Tamaki, legendary Wonder Woman creators Gail Simone, Liam Sharp, Nicola Scott, and Greg Rucka returning to the character, and more! Wonder Woman #750 also features pinup artwork by Ramona Fradon, José Luis Garcia-López, Emanuela Lupacchino, Bilquis Evely, and Travis Moore.

One of those major implications was teased in 2019, that Wonder Woman’s legacy precedes all other Super Heroes in the DCU’s overarching narrative. A hint at what that looks like can be seen in Wonder Woman #750’s “A Brave New World” eight-page story by Scott Snyder, Bryan Hitch, Mike Spicer, and Tom Napolitano.
