#ComicBookClub Review Party: Issue #3

by Aeryn Lynne

Welcome to our third issue of Comic Book Club review party! Do you have a review of a comic book that was released this week? Add your awesomeness to the linky below, ’cause I can’t wait to read it! The idea behind this book club, is that only one review per comic book will be linked below, and fellow fans/reviewers will be encouraged to visit your page to add their own opinion of the same book.

I totally get that it sometimes takes more than a week to write up a review, so I’m keeping these links open (indefinitely at the moment, but might switch it to just a month… we’ll see!) Please add your reviews for the right dates, you can find all the #ComicBookClub review parties here.

Comic Book Spotlight

Here’s a brand new bit, for #ComicBookClub! Each week’s book club page will come with a comic spotlight. Consider yourself entirely encouraged to share your thoughts on the spotlit comic in the comments below!

Marvel's Ant Man #1 2015 w/ Hank Pym Join Hank Pym, a.k.a. ANT-MAN, as he learns that a little experiment can land him in BIG trouble! Can Ant-Man tame something as painfully formidable as the Bullet Ant before it’s too late?! Find out! PLUS: Reprinting Tales to Astonish #27 (the first appearance of Hank Pym) and Tales to Astonish#35 (the first of appearance of Ant-Man in costume)!

My thoughts before reading: I’ll admit, I’m very much not a fan of past comics of Hank Pym; his intense ego has been too much for me so far. Which is probably why I’m so curious to see how he’s portrayed in 2015, especially with the Ant-Man movie coming out in July.

Have a suggestion for next week’s Comic Book Spotlight? Let me know!

Rules for Comic Book Club participation.

  1. The first rule of Comic Book Club, is that we always talk about Comic Book Club. Yep, went there.
  2. This Book Club will run from Wed to Tues, and can only include comics that were released that week.
  3. This post is a hub to find review discussions for your favourite comic(s). If you find your comic already listed in the link up below, click on that link to discuss all things about that comic. Any duplicate entries, based on comic title, found in the linky will be deleted.
  4. If your review is added to the linky, include this Comic Book Club sticker to the bottom of your post to keep the club-love alive (and hopefully highly encourage others to join in the fun.)
    Join the Comic Book Club Review Party
    Just copy & paste this code to your post:

    <center><a href="//geekwithstyle.ca/geek-culture/comic-book-club-review-party-issue-3/" target="blank_"><img src="//bit.ly/ComicBookClubSticker" alt="Join the Comic Book Club Review Party" width="300" height="287" /></a></center>
  5. By adding your link for the review party, you agree to allow other participants to share their own review links for that same comic within the comments of your post (though if its just a link, and only a link, you’re welcome to delete with extreme prejudice.)
  6. Alternatively, if you have a review of a comic you’d like to share, but someone has beat you to the linky punch this week, click on their link to share your review with others that have also enjoyed (or vehemently disliked,) that same book. You MUST add a constructive comment based on the review and/or book, and not just the link to your review. “This book was awesome, here’s my link…” doesn’t work; “Great point about that out-dated pun! I loved that they finally brought Wolverine back from the dead, but what’s with the hello-kitty inspired uniform? I wrote my own reveiw here….” is better.
  7. I’m making this up as we go along, keep an eye out, as the rules may change occasionally until we have an entirely fun book club each week! I also enjoy constructive comments, so if you have any ideas on how to make this party better, give me a shout here or by email.

Comic Book Club: Wed June 24 to Tues June 30, 2015
