Pop Culture Guy Episode 4: The Comics I've Read So Far

The Comics I've Read So Far

The first in a series of videos wherein I share what comic books I've been reading lately, with small opinions on each.

I began to buy and read comic books on a monthly basis since 2015. I've always been interested in reading them, especially as I love to watch superhero movies and tv shows. Never got around to it until then as I was afraid of the large history associated with them. Watching Linkara's Atop the Fourth Wall comic book review video web series finally convinced me to read comics.

Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who Assimilation^2-Crossover with Doctor Who and Star Trek: The Next Generation. Fun story with interesting artwork, though can be jarring at times

Civil War-Big Marvel event in which two sides of superheroes fight one another over politics. Interesting story, though a lot of out of character moments

Crisis on Infinite Earths-Game changing DC event that lead to the first big reboot of the entire universe. Filled to the brim with numerous characters, the comic is fun and filled with great iconic moments

Star Trek/Planet of the Apes: The Primate Directive-Crossover with Star Trek and Planet of the Apes. Great writing and really good artwork, there are numerous references to the works of both franchises. 

Marvel Masterworks: The Avengers Vol. 1-Collection of the first ten issues of The Avengers. Very wordy and classic artwork from 1960s Marvel. 

Batman: The Long Halloween-Year long investigation and manhunt for a killer going after Gotham's many mob associates during specific holidays. Well written, with a very exiting ending

Cartoon Network Super Secret Crisis War-Crossover with many Cartoon Network shows. A fun and nostalgic story, well written and accurate artwork. 

Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe-An alternate version of Deadpool realizes he's a comic book character and goes on a killing spree throughout his universe. Gory, funny, and some very memorable moments.

The Dark Knight Returns-An aged Bruce Wayne comes out of retirement and fights crime as a more grizzled and ruthless Batman. Iconic moment after iconic moment, but without certain things being explained. 

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1-The first in a six issue series of the Turtles ending up in the DC universe along with Shredder. Fun and with amazing artwork that gets you exited for the rest of the miniseries

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. #1-The first in an ongoing series that takes the characters from the show and adapts it into the Marvel universe. Great storytelling, dialogue, and artwork. 

Batman: The Killing Joke-Single issue legendary story dealing with the Joker's possible past and the overall relationship between him and Batman. Gothic and moody, with a well written story

An Innocent Guy-Small story that came with The Killing Joke about an ordinary man contemplating about killing Batman. Minimal but with a unique way of getting you interested

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #2-The Turtles and Batman meet but end up fighting each other due to not knowing who each other are. Artwork and fight scenes are well done

The New Mutants #98-Deadpool's introduction to the comics as he tries to kill Cable. The first appearance of Deadpool sells it even through the terrible artwork

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #3-Batman and the Turtles team up to fight Shredder and Penguin. Fun story with a surprisingly bleak cliffhanger

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #4-Raphael gains respect for Batman after learning his past and motivations. More drama oriented than action, with well written dialogue
