Comic Reactions- Free Comic Book Day

Free Comic Book Day was yesterday! (Depending on when I set this article to be published it could be later) The comic book store I went to had a limit of 5 comics per person, so I only have 5 to talk about this time.

Megaman: It’s a prequel to the entire series of Megaman, I guess. It shows Dr. Wily reprogramming all the robot masters to be evil and stuff. You know, typical Megaman. It was pretty cool I guess.

Sonic the Hedgehog: I… have no idea what was going on in this but it ended up with a roboticized Sally and that was kind of weird. The second half of the comic is a selection of prose vignettes for some reason. I think this is all connected to the Sonic: Genesis story arc from last year, but I have not read any Sonic Comics in 6 years so I am not sure.

Adventure Time had its first Free Comic Book Day comic, and it was totally amazing! There are 3 stories in there, and each one is pretty much great.
There is a second comic as this is a flipbook. It is the Peanuts comic. I won’t go into how horrible it is to continue Peanuts after Charles Schulz did not want this exact thing to happen, but I am not a fan. There are also 3 stories on this side, each separated by a Classic Peanuts sunday comic. The new stories are amusing I guess, but the Classic Peanuts comics were the only really good ones.

Avengers: Age of Ultron 0.1: This, along with Avengers v4 #1, was reprinted for Free Comic Book Day. I…. did not realize that I had already read this… I could have gotten something else cool but instead I am kind of dumb >_> The comic is good though. It is a setup for I guess a future event or miniseries of Age of Ultron, coming after AvX I assume.

The New 52 #1: This is the comic that everyone is hyping about. It has an all-new story by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee that is very much connected to Justice League. There’s a whole lot in here that I as a DC reader that started at the New 52 probably don’t even notice. I did see the New 52 Question and I am really wondering how that will play out! The comic ends with a preview for the Trinity War…. I do not know what that is. But it looks weird and it’s coming 2013. Then there’s 2-page previews of each of the six New Wave titles that come out this month. Earth 2 and Dial H look like the best of them.

      Oh yeah the Megaman series is pretty good. I have issues 6 through 11; I’m actually reading them right now coincidentally :0

    What I think was most sad about the New 52 FCBD issue, looking back, is that most of the comics introduced have already been cancelled or are currently faltering severely, sales-wise. I have a feeling that years in the future, when Wave 10 or something is introduced, Wave 2 will be looked at as quite the low point, since Waves 3 and 4 are both looking strong.
