Editorial: What Comics I Read This Week

This is a quick, to the point section on what I picked up in comics in the last couple days and what I think of them.  I might of picked some of them up last week.  

Angel & Faith #20

Writer: Christos Gage
Artist: Rebekah Isaacs
With 3 souls in him, Angel is basically incapacitated.  Spike and Faith go out on a mission to fix it.  Another excellent issue to the series, the banter between Faith and Spike is priceless and has me hoping Spike will stick around in this series for a while.  I still have no idea how they’re going to fix the main Buffy comic, but Angel & Faith has a wonderful and rich cast of characters with a plot any fan of the show can get behind.

Guardians of the Galaxy #1

Writer: Bendis
Artist: McNiven
I’m still bothered Star Lord is a blonde but the issue is pretty good.  Sure we’re missing half the team and they added Iron Man but the characters are for the most part reacting the right way.  Maybe not Drax though.  The whole protect the Earth thing isn’t something they just decided to do, there’s actually a story with Star Lord’s dad and the Badoon that will necessitate it thankfully.  Issue #1 is way too early to judge but it makes me way more confident than Nova #1 did.

Uncanny X-Men #3

Writer: Bendis
Artist: Bachalo
Wow, this issue is kind of awesome.  Granted if you hate Cyclops, you it may make your blood boil, which could be a good reaction in its own respect.  The characters in Uncanny X-Men are ballsy as hell and I’m glad I’m subscribed.  Magick is also quickly becoming a favorite of mine.  No longer is she Colossus’s little sister to kidnap, now she’s pretty awesome and gets quite a few good lines.  If you’re an X-Men fan, the Bendis comics are worth looking into.
