Comics this week

Birthright #21- The flashbacks are back but this time, it worked! I had said several times in the past that writer Joshua Williamson overdid it on the flashbacks but this issue showed how well it could if it is not overdone. Also helping the matter was that this flashback was told through the eyes of Rya, the winged warrior that was Mikey’s lover on Terrenos and the mother of his child. Excellent!

Jessica Jones #4- After 4 issues, I can safely say this about Jessica Jones; writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Michael Gaydos are doing this for the fans. If you are a fan of Jessica Jones before, you will love this new series. If not, Bendis has no interest in getting you on board. The main problem of this issue was the reveal that Jessica is a mole for Captain Marvel. It came out of the blue and didn’t quite work, but fans would still love it for the snarky interplay between Carol and Jessica. If you’re not however…  

Justice League vs. Suicide Squad #4- Writer Joshua Williamson sure likes his cliffhangers! After last week’s reveal of the origin of Max Lord’s group, the end of this issue has Max getting his hands on the item he was looking for and it was big. He also gave artist Fernando Pasarin a lot of room to show his talent with plenty of epic, blockbuster action. As I had said earlier, this event has been better than expected thus far and on that front, nothing has changed. It’s still very good.
