If you're like me, there are basically two days in your week. Wednesday and Not Wednesday. When it's not Wednesday, I'm not getting new comics, so I don't really care about the six other days. Yesterday happened to be Wednesday, which meant a few comics I planned to read came out... and here's what I though.
redhoodandtheoutlaws13cough, what? No, I'm not still upset about that). In all honesty, it seems like issue #7 is setting up for something grander, which isn't a surprise considering how we're earlier in the current arc.
I also want to mention that I love how Bendis writes Kitty Pryde. I definitely trust him with the character, which can't be said for other writers. It's fun to see her boss around those who once told her what to do. Perhaps my only problem with this issue is young!Scott, but I'm always going to have an issue with Scott Summers because he's never been interesting until post AvX. I'm just sick of seeing him mope around--and although he certainly has reason--it's getting annoying. I'm not quite sure how I like Wolverine much in this issue as well, but it also might've been due to certain confusions earlier in the issue.
There was also one of those obvious fan-service moments, in which two girls kiss. In the middle of a battle. Not really the smartest thing to do coming from a character that you would think was intelligent.
All in all, I wouldn't say it's a must-have. The Fearless Defenders #1 is decent, perhaps better suited for someone more into a campy and seemingly unintelligent book. At least it's pretty, though.
There was a short with Apollo and Midnighter, two characters I'm honestly not familiar with. It was still bad, and the artwork had an interesting character to it. Honestly, though, it wasn't quite my style. I won't go out and say it was bad, though. Just the writing. At least there's some LGBT influence in this book? Perhaps the only good thing?
We're not going to talk about how much sense the one-shot for Superman and Wonder Woman made. Because it made no fucking sense.
TL;DR: don't waste your time/money on this one.
And there we have it. I'm going to try to do these on a vague frequency, so maybe look forward to some more thoughts next week!
