It’s ON like Donkey Kong!


Manhunter #35

First, that’s an awesome cover. “Bring it.” Pretty much sums up everything there is to know about Kate Spencer.

Anyway, Kate just up and waltzes into Vessetech, the evil megacorp that’s serial-killing women in Mexico and manufacturing metahumans. She’s got the Birds of Prey as backup, but she ends up taking on most of the bad guys solo. Meanwhile, Kate’s son Ramsey is coming to grips with his new superpowers, and DEO agent Cameron Chase has a surprise announcement.

Verdict: Thumbs up. Quite a lot of excellent face-punching going on here. I still think the art is a bit weird, but it’s at least not too distracting most of the time. Also, Cameron Chase should appear in more comics, especially if she kicks people in the face.


March on Ultimatum Saga

This is mostly a textual comic, recounting the more-or-less full history of Marvel’s Ultimate universe, with updated and re-imagined versions of Marvel’s characters, leading to the run-up to their big “Ultimatum” crossover.

Verdict: Thumbs up. It’s free, and it’d have to be pretty awful to make “free” look like a bad thing. At any rate, it’s not bad at all, and it’s a great way to catch up on all the stuff that’s been happening with Ultimate Marvel.
