In essence, what we get from this issue is more of the same. But in this case, that’s a good thing. The charm and show-faithfulness of Erik Burnham’s writing at the fun of Tim Lattie’s pencils are very much intact.

Late in this issue, the Turtles don space suits that very obviously have Mickey Mouse ears on them. Raph makes a joke about them being from TCRI’s “psychological warfare department.” I’m not sure if that joke lands or not. But it’s definitely surreal to see the Turtles essentially dressed like Disney characters.

As the cover indicates, we get a character death in this issue. The problem is, the character who dies never had a role of substance in the book. We established that they were around, but that’s about it. We never told any interesting stories about them being in Spider-Man’s orbit, how their relationship with him evolved, etc. They were just there for the sake of being there. Almost as if they weren’t put there for any reason other than to be killed off later…

What a waste.

A Power Girl Special #1 Micro-Review – Slightly More Modest

From a writing standpoint, this special didn’t enthrall me any more than the recent Power Girl backups in Action Comics. But visually, I appreciate Marguerite Sauvage’s slightly more modest take on the character’s look.

As recently as DC’s Lazarus Planet event, the way that certain artists provocatively drew Power Girl was…distracting, let’s say. Sauvage does accentuate the character’s breasts, but not to the point of ridiculousness. If they’re thinking of doing more Power Girl content like this, this is the way she should be drawn.

Deadpool busts out a good ol’ fashioned Three Stooges style eye poke in this issue. As a Stooges fan, I enjoyed that.

I wonder what the creators of Lady Deathstrike think about her being used as what is essentially a babysitter for a giant symbiote dog…

Only seven issues in, I’m finding I’m already rather protective of Wade’s relationship with Valentine Vuong. If she backstabs him, I’m going to be inconsolable.

A Justice Society of America #4 Micro-Review – Convoluted, But Pretty

Our plot in this book is that Huntress, a.k.a. Batman’s daughter Helena Wayne, has gone back in time to save the Justice Society from a murderous supervillain. That’s a fine plot, in theory.. But I can’t understand why the book didn’t take a simpler approach, i.e. a story about the old school JSA fighting evil during World War II. It feels like that’s a little more in line with what fans wanted to see.

At the very least, Mikel Janin, Jerry Ordway, and their respective colorists turn in some gorgeous art. JSA is a little bit convoluted. But it’s pretty.
