Pointless Nonsense

Posted in comics by Bill on October 24, 2013

New-ish comics, roughly best to worst:

Rocket Girl tells the story of a teenage girl cop from the future with a jetpack traveling to the 80s to stop some people before they can do evil stuff in the future. They had me at time travel and jet packs. rocketgirl
Avengers: Endless Wartime is a loosely movie-inspired graphic novel from Warren Ellis, which is mostly notable for being extremely snarky. There are quite a few laughs in there, but it’s an odd read because you feel like the Avengers don’t even like each other. avendwar
Pretty Deadly is Kelly Sue DeConnick and Emma Rios’ new series for Image which is apparently about the daughter of death as some sort of spirit of vengeance in the old west. Which plays to Emma Rios’ strengths, I think. The first issue didn’t really grab me but I like the idea. prettydeadly
Hinterkind seems loosely based on those history channel specials they used to do about nature reclaiming cities after mankind ceased to exist. Some sort of apocalyptic event happens a long time before the series starts, and it’s set in the wilderness that used to be New York City. Which is a pretty cool setting, but I’m not loving the art or the antagonists, so I may drop this quickly. hinterkind
