Reviews of the latest digital comics from Marvel Comics
Groot assembles a ragtag band of aliens to go after Eris and finally save his long-last pal, Rocket! An explosive surprise sets his plans off-course, though!
Groot certainly makes friends – although he doesn’t bring one he wants – but we still don’t know why he made this enemy. Groot finally makes his move, with a ragtag group of deities, Skrulls and a Robot. It’s a very funny read, but with a soul. Rocket is also here, being the traditional Rocket that you expect. The ending is quite jarring, but there are some good points – and there is hope. This series is continuing as a fun read outside the main Marvel Universe – but still within it!
The final chapter in the Autobiography of Matt Murdock is written by someone who may surprise you. Not everyone survives this phase in Daredevil’s life. Find out who lives, who dies, and who is changed forever.
The final episode wraps everything up on this run – leaving a couple of loose ends for any future adventures for Matt and the team. Matt finally comes up with a plan – and it’s done on the fly. It lasts for long enough and Daredevil manages to fool the Kingpin for long enough for all the pieces to come together. This series has introduced some new status quo, some new issues and deals with some others. It’s a heartfelt read, along with some excellent action and Daredevil pieces. A great bookend to the series!
Mockingbird: S.H.I.E.L.D 50th Anniversary #1
Mockingbird has always been one of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s best agents, but what happens when someone close to her is murdered? Forced to take matters into her own hands, someone is bound to pay! New York Times Bestselling Author Chelsea Cain joins the Marvel Universe to tell a story of bloody revenge! Plus, a special bonus story by superstar young adult author, Margaret Stohl (Beautiful Creatures), writer for the upcoming YA novel, Black Widow: Forever Red!
Another 50th edition for S.H.I.E.L.D. and this time we get some Mockingbird action as well as an introduction to The Red Widow. I must say the Mockingbird story feels like it could have been longer, and I hope to see more of the character as it has legs. The Red Widow introduction was short and sweet – mirroring a look at Black Widow and showing the differences between the two – as well as their link.
