Reviews: Now What!, Daredevil, Iron Man & Nova From Marvel Comics

A good selection from Marvel this week – I skirted round the edges of ‘Infinity’ and carried on reading some good series.

Daredevil #32 finishes off The Jester (for now) but continues the Serpent Society arc well. Adding in some new aspects, while giving us a good look at the history of them too! The dynamic between Matt & Foggy here was brilliant, looking at them investigating the history and origins of the Serpent Society. The addition of the magic, and the introduction of Doctor Strange was well done – especially the reasons for Daredevil meeting outside!

It’s been too long for Jack Russell to have been away and the addition of the monster set looks to add something new to this series!

In the conclusion to the arc of ‘The Origin of Tony Stark’ Iron Man #17 doesn’t pull any punches. It’s well crafted and doesn’t collide with previous continuity. There are so many things that can come from this which don’t take anything away from Tony or Iron Man as a character.

Iron Man hasn’t been a character I’ve really got into, but this series and especially this arc has had me absolutely hooked!

I’m a big fan of The Gutters, and it seems to me that someone in Marvel is too. Marvel Now What! is a twisted look at everything that Marvel have done from Marvel Now!

The art is fun and cartoony and have some nice little visual tics to it. Worth getting if you want a laugh!

Nova #9 ends my skirting round the edges of ‘Infinity’ and it’s far enough away for me to enjoy. It looks as if we’re getting close to more ‘New Warriors’ and there’s some nice touches here.

This is a different Nova to what we are used to – he’s still learning the ropes, but there is his own moral code for a young hero which is very much like some of the old Spider-Man stories. Possibly the longest Nova series ongoing I’ve read too!

This issue of Iron Man: Fatal Frontier #3 really got me going, I was thinking to myself that this wasn’t a 3-issue series, and lo! there was a happy ending.

Nope!
But where to go next. The moon scenes are well done, and this is perfectly suited to reading digitally and links up well to the main Iron Man series!
