Welcome to the weekly rundown of comic book review from Major Spoilers. There is a lot of stuff on the site, but this is certainly the place to find all of the reviews we’ve written this week (and a bit more).
This week, on the Major Spoilers Podcast: Geoff Johns takes on the Teen Titans, Invincible gets and animated series, and is Incredibles 2 worth the wait? Also we review, Black Hammer Age of Doom #3, Fathom #1, and Shanghai Red #1.
We’ve seen the revenge story done time and time again in westerns and fantasies, modern day and science fiction, even with superheroes. A man is out to gain vengeance on those who wronged him/killed his family/took his honor/yadda-yadda. It gets bloody and many sacrifices are made. Shanghai Red has a similar story: shanghaied to serve on a sailing ship, tortured and beaten, forced to submit, a family dependent on them left behind. It sounds a little familiar, but when the revenge seeker is a woman, then there is a completely new level of pain to be explored. Let’s check out Shanghai Red #1 from Image Comics, and find out just how many.
Eisner-nominated writer Christopher Sebela, artist Joshua Hixson, and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou team up for the all-new revenge thriller SHANGHAI RED coming this June from Image Comics.
