Last Month in Comics – September 2016

I have rescheduled this post more times than I needed to this week, simply because I could not bring myself to start this stack. 20 comics in one go is exhausting, and I still feel like I’m missing three titles. I usually like to have these kinds of posts done by the eighth of the month, but here it comes on the ninth, which is good enough in my book.

September was an interesting month in the Marvel universe, as everyone currently involved in Civil War II had something to say about Bruce Banner’s death. Which is fine, but I’m pretty sure this could have been said in August. Over at Archie Comics, Josie and the Pussycats makes its debut, whilst Jughead gets a new writer and Archie ends its second arc. Black Mask Studios debuts The Forevers, and DC is apparently in need of a web editor. Those blank banners aren’t going to fix themselves.

You’ll notice that the cover image for this post is from Captain America: Steve Rogers. Even though I’m not a big fan of that run, I can’t deny how cute this cover is.

Last Month in Comics – August 2016

Hey all, I’m finally back on the scene with the last bit of my August list. The good thing about it is that I also have most of my September comics as well. The bad part? These posts are almost as exhausting as setting up the queue for my music blog. In a good way, though!

So, without further ado, here’s last month in comics:

This Month In Comics – May 2016

Hey All!

I am back again with the whole of my May pull list: 16 issues from 16 different comics. I refuse to call this Last Month In Comics because I wrote majority of it while we were still in May, and June starts on New Comic Book Day. Deal with it.

This (last) month, two of my favorite comics ended! Also, Steve Rogers came back as a White Supremacist, and I actually liked a Cyborg issue. Crazy month, this May was.

Let’s begin!

Last Month In Comics – April 2016 pt. 2

So last month, I was not able to review all of my April pull list because of personal issues. Thankfully, this month I got all of my comics, and am now able to play catch up.

I will more than likely be doing a big round up post for the May installment of “This Month In Comics”, but that won’t be until sometime after next Wednesday. I don’t like the idea of these posts being so close together.

April saw the end of a few arcs, and even one series, as well as a writer change for a title that is somehow managing to survive the reboot. With DC Rebirth right around the corner, I expect a few places on my pull list will be emptying out in order to accommodate some new additions. While I don’t agree with the ending of some of these books, I’m optimistic about beginning the newer ones.

This Month In Comics – February 2016

 

Happy Leap Day, all!!!

I am so excited to be at the end of February – and at the end of my 100% fulfilled posting schedule – back with a full lineup of comics from my pull list to review. This month treated me to two new ongoing series, as well as a newish series from a publisher I had never bothered with before. I must say that I was very much satisfied with just about all of the new stories.

Usually, I like to post each review with the particular comic book cover that I have at home, but most of my issues from DC were Neal Adams variants, and those were particularly hard to find. So most of the DC series will be posted with the main cover, however I’ve somehow managed to obtain my first ever non-variant Archie Comics cover since the New Riverdale ‘verse began.

In any case, thank you all for once again joining me in my review of my pull list. Let us begin.
