Comics this week

Jupiter's Circle Vol. 2 #3- When we last saw him, Skyfox was helping protestors against the might of the U.S government. This issue opens with him kidnapping the Vice-President of America and holding his hostage. His demand? That America gets out of Vietnam. You would think with such an opening, we would have an entire issue on this right? Wrong! Instead, we are treated to an issue where the team got ambushed by a villain that got nothing to do with Skyfox. I don’t know what writer Mark Millar is trying to do here. If you are going to start with the kidnapping of the Vice-President of America, it seems bloody strange no to go through with the story.

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #3- The debut issue was a pleasure. The second issue did not live up to expectations but this issue gives me hope again. I think writers Amy Reeder and Brandon Montclare need to move the series away from those cavemen and get the focus back on Moon Girl. Showing Lunella Lafayette, Moon Girl, in her own lab was an excellent touch this issue and having The Hulk show up at the end was also a good thing. Just get away from the cavemen and this may live up to the debut.
