Comics this week

Copperhead #9- With Deputy Boo prisoner of the outlaw gang, this issue has Sheriff Clara rounding up a posse to the rescue. In many ways, this is to be expected in space western, but writer Jay Faerber did more than that in this issue. Faerber gets into the AIs of Jasper and the society of androids function. I find that part of the issue to be amazing and I hope Faerber will get back to it in the future. Of course, artist Scott Godlewski's work is still amazing and together, the duo is making Copperhead a must read for everyone. 

Ninjak #5- Remember the part in the Avengers movie where Loki was captured and then Fury has the suspicion that Loki was exactly where he wanted to be? I have that feeling at the end of this issue when Konnon was captured by Ninjak and delivered to MI6 minus arms and legs. Honestly, the end save this arc as the final fight between Konnon and Ninjak was pretty pointless and it was not helped by the constant flashbacks to Colin's past. The backup story was much better, giving us an insight to what made Colin the super spy ninja he is today. This issue is not perfect but writer Matt Kindt looks to have a plan and he did enough to make me come back for the next arc.
