Geekscape Comics: Weekend Reads!

Tuesday 22nd March 2016 by Karson

Welcome to Weekend Reads! It’s your little, weekly dose of comic book goodness that focuses on some aspect of my weekend reading!

I pretty much punted comic book reading this weekend for what should be obvious reasons; a little Netflix show called Daredevil. Anyways, let’s get into the reads! Well… read:

Extraordinary X-Men (2015-) 008-000
Extraordinary X-Men #8 by Lemire & Ramos

It begins. That’s right, the big X-Men crossover, “Apocalypse Wars” kicks off in the 8th issue of Extraordinary X-Men and so far, so good! The issue serves as a setup for events to come but Lemire offers enough action pieces and character moments to make it a worthwhile read. We have some sweet fight scenes, old villains, and big reveals! Ramos’ art is hit and miss for me, but I’ve been liking what he’s doing with the X-Men, mostly because it gives him a chance to draw non-human characters (something I think he excels at). Cerebra looks so damn good!

I don’t know if this crossover will be awesome or not but it’s off to a good start, and I’m going to keep up with it… but first I’m going to finish Daredevil!

#QOTD Is there a Marvel franchise around right now (any medium) that is better than Netflix’s Daredevil?
