Comic Book Review: Old Man Logan

Details: First issue was published in 2016. The series ended at issue fifty, but will continue and be concluded in an unreleased subsequent series. Official site is https://www.marvel.com/comics/series/20617/old_man_logan_2016_-_present

Score: 7.6/10

When I first saw Old Man Logan was being made into a new series, I was worried that they were going to misconstrue Mark Millar’s fan favorite character and pervert it. Fortunately, that was no the case. Old Man Logan continues the story of an old Wolverine being time displaced into the present Marvel continuity.

Comic Book Review: Star Wars: Darth Vader

Details: Initially published in 2017. This series is still ongoing. Official site is https://www.marvel.com/comics/series/23095/darth_vader_2017_-_present

Score: 7.5/10

Star Wars: Darth Vader does everything I want in a Star Wars comic book. The book obviously can’t touch the events established in the movies. However, the book can add context and back story to all of these events, often times even justifying silly movie plot points that made no sense at the time. Darth Vader does this by giving side characters a time to shine, adding to the Jedi-Sith mythos, and adding more to Vader’s history.

Video Game Review: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD

Details: Originally released in 2006. The HD release was in 2016 for the Wii U. Beat the game in about 33 hours. Official site is https://www.zelda.com/twilight-princess-hd/

Score: 7.4/10

The biggest flaw with this game is mostly due to Breath of the Wild being the superior game and I having played that game first. This is still a fun game, but after playing Breath of the Wild, this is definitely a game that you can skip without fear of missing out on anything.

Comic Book Review: Titans

Details: This is a review for the series that was initially published in 2016. More information can be found at https://comicvine.gamespot.com/titans/4050-92577/

Score: 5.4/10

With the release of the new Titans television series, it seemed apt to have a similarly named comic book also be released along side of it for a little cross promotion. Titans the comic book does not relate at all to the television series and instead seeks to bring back the old roster of the original Teen Titans and set them on new adventures. Unfortunately, this book just ends up overly dramatic and kind of boring. The art is also not really doing it for me.

Details: This is a review of volume one and volume two. The first volume was released in 2011 and the second was renumbered and was initially released in 2016 and is ongoing. More information can be found at https://comicvine.gamespot.com/red-hood-and-the-outlaws/4050-42919/ and https://comicvine.gamespot.com/red-hood-and-the-outlaws/4050-92966/

Score: 6.3/10

Red Hood and the Outlaws follows Jason Todd, the second Robin, as he forges new friendships and fights crime on his terms. That usually means lots of killing.

Comic Book Review: Super Sons

Details: First issue was published in 2017. More information can be found at https://comicvine.gamespot.com/super-sons/4050-98910/

Score: 6.9/10

Super Sons is a series telling the story of Superman’s son, Jonathan Kent, and Batman’s son, Damian Wayne, and the misadventures the two regularly get in. The comic was canceled a while back, but it’s still a fun story with plenty of childish hijinks and bro-mance moments.

Comic Book Review: Injustice: Gods Among Us

The above clip is just a preview for Grounds Zeroes I found on the DC Comics YouTube page.

Details: This is a review of all Injustice: Gods Among Us series. There are six series with each series ranging from twenty-four to forty issues. The six series are Year One through Year Five and Ground Zeroes. Official site is https://www.dccomics.com/games/injustice-gods-among-us-2013

Score: 6.3/10

Injustice: Gods Among Us is a surprisingly successful comic book series based on the video game of the same name. What’s so surprising about this series is just how successful it was and how much people enjoyed a derivative series based off another property. Usually, these things aren’t all that entertaining, but this series was really fun for a lot of people. I just thought it was okay.
