Alright everyone, I figure this is a good opportunity to talk about some of these books and why I am picking up more in the series. Let's start with the new Captain America. I read the first issue and it was okay. The story is very political and that is what makes it feel the most like Captain America. Let's be clear here though, this does not feel like a Captain America story. Sam Wilson is a much different character than Steve Rogers in every way from beliefs to actions. Sam is the Falcon he just has a shield now and a fancy costume. I am interested in seeing how he develops. I have his first run before this 'reboot' and I actually enjoyed that arc much better. That being said, I can only hope we get back to that. Marvel is doing their thing with this book tying in issues like immigration and left vs right political debates in just the first issue. I am not sure how much it adds to the story or how well it is weaved in.
I am going to be completely honest and tell you guys that I did not read the last run on Deadpool. I know, how could I do that?!?!? Well, I have read the older trades and such but Deadpool went much of the way that Harley Quinn went. Once they were overly popularized they honestly lost something. That being said, the first issue of the new series of Deadpool was not bad. I wouldn't say it was great or even a must read but it was on par for Deadpool.
The last book I would like to talk about is Uncanny Inhumans. For those who don't know I love the Inhumans. Black Bolt is one of my favorite comic book characters and has been for quite a while. This book had everything going for it. It was written by Charles Soule who is amazing and it brought Black Bolt back to the forefront, a characteristic missing from the still great Inhuman series that preceded this. This book kind of just summarized some of the events from that series while bringing back characters such as Flint, Dante, Iso, and Reader and introduced the new character Grid. We also bring in the Beast who has a unique job and Johnny Storm shows up and surprises us. I do not want to spoil anything but his appearance and actions were interesting. The status quo is different know and I am excited for the future of this series.
