Welcome to my roundup of comic book reviews for the week of November 17, 2021. I’ll be talking about Superman: Son of Kal-El number 5, SWORD number 10, Clear number 2, and more!

It’s finally happened! In writer Tom Taylor Superman: Son of Kal-El number 5, we got to see Jon and Jay share their first kiss. The current issue got a lot of reactions online when the promotional material talked about the two young characters sharing such a tender moment. In my opinion, Jon falling in love with Jay made sense. Jay is definitely ready to support Jon when needed. Also, I love how Jay has his own superpowers, so he’s not an immediate liability for Jon if someone decides to kidnap him.

The current issue has made our young Superman realize that he can’t help others if he doesn’t take care of himself first. I think that’s an important lesson that every hero, regardless of age, needs to learn. The other lesson was that saving every being is simply not possible.

Does it have any obvious weird characters? Yes.

SWORD Issue 10 Review

SWORD Number 10

Even though I knew Wiz-Kid wasn’t going to betray mutants, I have to say that writer Al Ewing still managed to make me slightly doubt Wiz-Kid’s motives in SWORD number 10. Wiz-Kid is definitely an interesting character. I can’t wait to see what he does next once SWORD comes to an end.

With Krakoa having the ability to resurrect mutants with certain modifications, I think Ewing did a good job of explaining why Wiz-Kid didn’t want to go through the process (unless it was completely necessary) to wake up in a new body.

As for the action, I’m ready to see Storm wreak havoc on incoming reinforcements in the next issue. I liked how she could sense that something bad was heading towards Arakko. I follow all tales showing Storm’s connection to the planet she is on and how such a connection allows her to experience certain disturbances. Fingers crossed, Ewing compels Storm to tap into her divinity.

Does it have any obvious weird characters? No.

Power Rangers Review Issue 13

Power Rangers Number 13

From writer Ryan Parrott, Power Rangers Issue #13 was an action-packed episode from “The Eltarian War” arc. It was awesome to see the Omega Rangers team up with the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers to take on Zartus’ army on Earth. However, it was clear that things would get worse for our heroes before they got better.

With Rangers having to work with longtime villains due to dire circumstances, I can’t wait to see Rangers come up with an effective counterattack. Also, are Bulk and Skull okay?

Does it have any obvious weird characters? No.

Recommendation: TO GATHER!

Mamo review number 5

mamo Number 5

mamo by writer Sas Milledge is undoubtedly one of the best series released this year. Issue #5 brought it all to a satisfying conclusion while also opening a new door for Jo and Orla. I enjoyed reading about the magic system in this series and want to learn more.

The theme of the ties you share with your homeland, family and friends (even if some of them are problematic ties) was well handled. Hopefully, we can see Jo and Orla, who have now openly displayed their romantic feelings for each other, return for another adventure in this intriguing fictional world.

Does it have any obvious weird characters? Yes.

Clear Number 2

I received a free digital copy of Clear number 2 for review. The opinions I have shared are my own.

From writer Scott Snyder, with art and colors by Francis Manapul, Clear Issue 2 gave us a lot of world building as well as a deeper look into Sam’s personal life and feelings. I’m still not a fan of Sam’s ex-wife Kendra dying for him give a new mystery to solve (related to the work Kendra was doing).

However, I’m interested in the fictional world that the creative team introduced. The concept of human beings changing their reality through the use of ‘veils’ and its impact on society as a whole is something I want to see more of.

Does it have any obvious weird characters? No.
