Comics Roundup #4: Gotham Academy and More!

January 21, 2015

Hi Gang!
 First Comic post of the new year! At the beginning of December, I picked up some much needed comics but because ya know, Life, I just now got around to writing about them. I picked up Gotham Academy #1-3, Capture Creatures #1, She-Hulk #1-8 and Secret Six #1. I was so disappointed with Secret Six, I didn't even bother to write about it. I picked it up, because Simone has my allegiance but the art is catastrophically terrible. I really hope the art gets better, otherwise, I'll have to drop it from my pull pile.

Capture Creatures by Gibson & Dreistadt is first up. I was drawn to it by the cover art. I have always been a huge fan of cute art. The inside art is so clean, and the characters have some ethnicity to them. Always a big plus for me. I actually just realized that my Huge Marvel Poster, doesn't have a single person of color in the front the first one I found was like three rows back. If I didn't find them I would have gotten rid of the poster. I'm composing a letter about How angry I am that Storm is literally in the back of the poster but that is a post for another time. This comic is funny, the art is adorable and I am super excited about what they have in store for the future. I am a huge Pokemon fan, and I honestly didn't see a lot of similarities, despite what the Internet may be saying.

Gotham Academy By Cloonan, Fletcher, Kerschl, Geyser, and McCaig. I have read 1-3. I was drawn to it by the art and the many times it appeared on  Betty Felon, if you don't know who she is, educate yourself. I did enjoy the diversity that DC showed. I had to close it and open again, just to make sure it was DC! I also liked the story, but I haven't quite pieced together the importance of Cobblepot yet, I hope they aren't adding it just because it is in the Gotham Television show. it would be the easiest way to piss me off.

She-Hulk by Soule, Pulido, and Vicente. I have only read issue one. As a comic fan, I have heard about She Hulk, but I didn't know anything about her except that she was a lawyer. My interest was piqued when that awful Screen Writer described her as a green Porn Star, So I went to my local shop, and picked up issues 1-8, Unfortunately, by the time I got to Shulkie, I had a headache the size of Texas, after reading comics all day and had to put her to the side. I have certain art styles that I am drawn too and even though my father isn't a fan of her 60's feel I am. I can't wait to delve into her story, I have a feeling that she is going to be a new favorite.

Until Next Time,
