Reviews of what I read from Marvel Comics
Star Wars #6
Conclusion of Skywalker Strikes! Luke vs. Boba Fett! Han Solo in hot water! This is “the comic book you’re looking for!” – Comic Book Resources
There is some interesting notes here, and the Luke story is to me more interesting!
For the first time ever, the most famous talking-tree-thing in the Marvel Universe is starring in his own series! You might recognize him from Guardians of the Galaxy, the biggest movie of 2014. When Rocket and Groot are on an intergalactic road-trip and calamity strikes, the two get separated, and for the first time in years, Groot’s on his own! Whatever may be coming Groot’s way, one thing’s for sure- it’s going to be a Groot adventure!
Following on from the fun Rocket Racoon series, we now get a Groot series, with him and Rocket wanting to go to earth, they are waylaid all the way, until Rocket is gone! It will be interesting to read this series, as to my knowledge Rocket is the only one who understands Groot!
The art was fun and bouncy too!
Darth Vader #6
The Emperor’s machinations revealed! Everything changes for Vader! The tale of Vader’s transformation from A New Hope to The Empire Strikes Back continues!
Linking to the main Star Wars series at the end, it begins with a pretty bland fight scene, but ends on a ‘high’ notes, sometimes the best parts of this series is when Vader is alone with his thoughts! This takes the same scene from the end of Star Wars and adds something extra to it…
BTW – The Emperor is a dick!
Princess Leia #4
The Empire is rounding up fugitive Alderaanians! That doesn’t sit well with their Princess. But what can one woman do against an Empire?
This is a slower series than the other two Star Wars titles, but there is also a different theme running through it – Leia wants to do things her way and she’s rubbing people up the wrong way. Her sense of morals are well defined here too. I like the art here as well as it’s well in keeping with the tone of the comic!
