Hello Nerdy people!
Welcome back to the Buy List. One thing I was considering was doing actually in depth reviews on some of these books. If I were to do that, which ones would you most be interested in? Perhaps it would be better to do reviews as blog posts and then to talk about them on the podcast. What do you guys think?
For this week, I will start with Marvel. Amazing Spider-Man has been really quite good despite the fact that Spider-Man is essentially Iron Man now. I will say that this is not a book for everyone. People who are huge fans of the older Spider-Man stuff and who have not read more recent stuff may find that this series lacks some of the fundamental parts of Peter Parker's character. Doctor Strange continues to wow. The series is not only fun and entertaining but it also provides readers with an emotional anchor while presenting the consequences of being the Sorcerer Supreme. Obi-Wan and Anakin had an okay first issue. It is great to see young Anakin and how Obi-Wan struggled with teaching him. The story was not that strong but we will see where it goes. I cannot wait for Miles' first series as THE Spider-Man. He has earned it.
Batgirl is good right now. I feel like they are getting close to a recycled plot but they continue to surprise and make interesting moves. Batman and robin Eternal threatened to change our understanding of Bruce Wayne forever. In recent issues those revelations come to light and we find out the truth. Fans of Batman, fans of Robin, rejoice. Batman Europa is good but not great.
I feel like I have said enough about Paper Girls. If you aren't reading it yet, I have no clue what you are doing with your life. God is Dead has perhaps gone on too long and is maybe nearing its end. They are trying new things but the feeling is not the same. Klaus is fun and not what you'd expect.
Thanks again everyone for listening to us and reading. I will be back again next week. Until then #StayNerdy.
