  • Batman #22
  • Jean Grey #1
  • Hawkeye #6
  • X-Men Gold #3

The first arc of Kelly Thompson and Leonardo Romero’s Hawkeye wraps up this week with Jessica Jones helping Kate Bishop on her first case.  I love how much Kate hero-worships Jessica while staying her independent, take-charge self.

Falsh #21 was mystery-solving Batman at its prime with a gasp-inducing reveal at the end, so I have high hopes for the follow up Batman this week.  Now watch it be 90% fighting again…

  • Batman #22
  • Black Bolt #1
  • Jean Grey #1
  • My Hero Academia Vol. 8
  • Outcast #27
  • Paper Girls #14
  • Shipwreck #4
  • Star Wars Poe Dameron #14
  • X-Men: Gold #3

My pick of the week on the show was Black Bolt, so check out the show tomorrow for my thoughts on that.

Jean Grey is another X-Men book I’m trying. Not sure how I’m going to like it, but I’m definitely willing to try it. I have no idea what I’m getting in to, but it’s her first solo book and I’m game for it.

Shipwreck has been gone for a bit. Not sure why. Not sure my brain is into this book any more. Sort of reminds me of Ellis’ Supreme Blue Rose, which I ultimately was buying for Tula Lotay’s art and was very, very weird. I’m in it until the end (which I believe is #6), but I am totally not sure what is going on.

I’m too far behind on Batman to comment on any of the mess likely going on with “The Button.”

Star Wars: Poe Dameron has been a constant, escalating story with no real moment to breathe. It’s not bad so much as it’s a bit tiring, constantly being on the upward path.
