Score: 7.5/10

Silver Surfer: Requiem is a nice little miniseries that tells a what if story: what if the Silver Surfer was dying? It’s written by the titular J. Michael Straczynski.

Comic Book Review: Vision

Score: 7.8/10

Vision is one of the most revered comic books in recent memory. Lots of people call it a masterpiece. I think it even won and Eisner Award, which is like the Oscars for comic books. After finally reading through it, I can see why they’d say that.

Score: 7/10

Batman: Hush was surprisingly good considering how crappy the past few DC Comics animated movies have been in my opinion. Most amazingly is how the movie offers something new-ish for people already familiar with the comic book.

Manga Review: A Wild Last Boss Appeared!

Details: More information can be found at https://myanimelist.net/manga/109032/Yasei_no_Last_Boss_ga_Arawareta

I think this is the official site, it’s in Japanese though: https://www.comic-earthstar.jp/detail/wildlastboss/

Score: 7/10

A Wild Last Boss Appeared! is another cookie cutter isekai story. It doesn’t do anything new, but if you like the genre, you’ll likely enjoy this.

The story is about a video game player who gets transported into the video game he plays. He turns into his character, which is a female, so he gets gender bent. In this world, the character he inhabits was an overpowered villain, so now he’s coming to terms with that.

It’s not an original story. There’s a lot of fighting. A lot of anime tropes. The art is pretty good.

Overall, this manga was just okay. Feel free to skip it.

Score: 7/10 for issue #193, 8/10 for the series as a whole

Much like his past series Invincible, Robert Kirkman has suddenly ended his Walking Dead comic book series, a series that spawned the television show and who knows how much merchandising money. Again, like in Invincible, the Walking Dead comic book has felt stagnant for a while. As a series that depended largely on shock plot twists, this sudden ending at least offers some final surprise to a series that seemed to be dying a slow death.
