May 2017 Comic Block Review Wrap-Up
In the All New Guardians of the Galaxy #1, we catch up with the Guardians (including Baby Groot) on their latest mission on Citopia. Unfortunately, the deal doesn’t go as planned and one of the team is left with a mysterious ailment. This was an exciting read that was peppered with traditional Guardians humor. The Comic Block May exclusive t-shirt is a legendary shirt featuring the Star Lord.
The new Marvel’s Secret Empire variant cover combines with the variant cover from All New Guardians of the Galaxy #1 to create an epic image featuring some of our favorite Marvel Heroes. As we started reading, we were shocked to see Captain America as the Supreme Leader of Hydra! This issue gives us a first look at the world after Steve Rogers has been transformed into the Ultimate Hydrate Sleeper Agent by a Cosmic Cube.
New Humanz by Titan Studios introduces us to mother and daughter Riley and Sadie. A normal day by the lake turns their world upside down when they are mysteriously transported 200 years into the future. Now, Riley is working for a crime syndicate to save enough money to help Sadie get a real human body. The issue ends leaving us wondering how Riley will survive her latest assignment.
We enjoyed David Baron’s Stained comic. Emma is partially mechanical and works for the CCPD as a bounty hunter. In this first issue, we get a taste of how Emma catches the bad guys and her life. This issue also provided a sneak peek into Chapter 2.
Finally, Nerd Block rounded out the May Comic Block with two Justice League collectibles! The Justice League bookends are solid black, durable plastic that assemble to create each end. One side has the silhouettes of Wonder Woman and Batman. The other side has Batman and the Flash. Also from Justice League is the plastic whiskey tumbler. With the silhouettes of the Justice League as the design, this tumbler is perfect for enjoying cool beverages. In case you missed it, here’s the latest Justice League trailer!
