Ninjak vs The Valiant Universe #3 (Valiant)
I’m actually liking this series for the coming web series more than the current title. There has been way more action in it, while the regular series keeps wasting time on introducing and then giving a whole issue over to each lettered ninja. I’m tired of setup issues Valiant. Give me the damn story in a more interesting way!!! This book is doing just that. Plus… It’s the closest thing we have to a Unity book right now. Why is there no ongoing Unity book??? So yeah… right now, Ninjak vs The Valiant Universe is my favorite Valiant title. Only one more to go and the web series should also be released in April I believe… Don’t quote me on that.
Side note: I like Ninjak’s costume better in this than in the regular series too. It looks way more high-tech!!!
Scooby Apocalypse #23 (DC)
The gang are taking refuge from the monsters of the apocalypse in a mall and this issue is mostly prep. Though we do get to see Scoob take on a monster to protect the kid who is becoming his friend. I get TWD Carl vibe from the kid… I hope he grows out of that. It’s still really good art and an interesting story (BETTER than TWD!!!). My only complaints are the first page or two being used to summarize what happened last issue in character dialogue. Just make a paragraph summary and get to it. We already lose precious pages to this damn Secret Squirrel back up story which I NEVER read. That being my second complaint. All in all… good issue, nice art, and at least things are moving forward!!!
That’s the only NEW stuff this week so far. If I get anything else I’ll review it in a supplemental. Read on comics fans!!!
