Comics: What You Really, Really Want
by Dee. 2/2/2019Welcome back, comic lovers!
For the month of January, we have some very interesting selections: Man Without Fear (2019), and Young Justice. We also have a preview of Morning in America.
Man Without Fear (2019) (Marvel Comics): This story picks up with Matt Murdock in a coma, which has been part of the long running series' story arc as of late. Matt is haunted by the various specters of his superhero life, taunting and terrorizing him in turn.
Matt's nightmares are tinged red, while the images of the real world are more of a cool blue color scheme. In the present, we see Foggy coming to visit Matt. Without background knowledge of Daredevil and his foes, this will be a confusing issue to come in on. For those of you know more of the backstory, this will be an interesting look into Matt's psyche.
Young Justice (DC Comics): Join us for more adventures of Robin (Tim Drake), Impulse (aka Kid Flash), Teen Lantern, Superboy, Wonder Girl, Jinny Hex and Amethyst as they take out the bad guys encroaching on Metropolis from Gemworld. For those of you with only a passing familiarity of the different characters introduced in this first issue, Teen Lantern, Jinny Hex and Amethyst are all new, so you won't be completely lost.
The character designs are updated for a different style; Superboy has gone for a very punk look, with ripped knees, spiky shoulders and big ol' boots. Robin has his more classic look but also has a few tech upgrades. Impulse is a very dynamic character who has received more exaggerated and energetic posing by artist Patrick Gleason.
Morning in America (Oni Press): Taking place in the 1980's, this story is about a female gang of juvenile delinquents in small town Ohio. Teens start disappearing after a mysterious factory is opened, and it's up to the Sick Sisters to get to the bottom of it all.
The color palette is nice and bright, to go along with the sassy humor of the script. Artist Magdalene Visaggio (Eternity Girl) and writer Claudia Aguirre (Kim & Kim, Quantum Teens Are Go) have a great chemistry between them, and I look forward to reading more from them.
Release date: March 6, 2019.
That's all for now,
