SPOILER ALERT!!

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this comic it was fun, witty with a curious story. It was a great starting point to a comic series it built up the story really well with a slight altercation with Thanos but the promise of more. It also had a great use of other characters introductions and storylines to develop the plot. I really enjoyed the fact that the plot had all the components of a great story with romance, rivalry and drama.

Artwork:

I loved the artwork it was not too busy but still had a lot going on on most pages which kept the pace going at a steady pace. The palette of colours used is so pretty and space agey with the blues and purples which made me love it even more. Not only that but I really enjoyed the people and monster designs they were very classic marvel with an updated look.

Dialogue:

I really loved the dialogue it was very witty with jokes that were very relatable to real life. The dialogue also gave us a good amount of background to understand the situation a bit as like everything in Marvel its all interconnected so starting new series can be confusing. There wasn’t a lot of dialogue which was an advantage as it kept the superhero pace.

Favourite Characters:

I really loved Star-Lord partly because he was quite like Chris Pratt’s version. Also he had this great mixture of kindness and charm to him. I also really enjoyed Captain Victoria although a small part and would liked to have seen more of her because she is a badass confident woman.

Hated Characters:

I didn’t like Thanos he is an arrogant villain but it was interesting that they made him more humane in the sense of his conscious in a conversation with Legendary Star-Lord. I also didn’t like Kitty the girlfriend of Legendary Star-Lord as she was too whinny and didn’t have enough of a part in this volume to develop her character I assume she will develop later in the volumes.

Overall:

Awesome comic with witty dialogue and beautiful art and the promise of lots of interesting drama in later volumes.

Brothers And Sisters Season 1 Episode 3

All is revealed?

┬áThis episode is definitely all revealing about Nora’s marriage to William and Kitty struggling with her relationships. Not only does the central issue ripples into all the other characters relationships. It is an episode that starts sort of in a black humour style and then moves into a very meaningful episode.
The dynamics between all the characters all have this great banter between them that represents how a big family talks which I have experience in. Its just a great relatable comedy like when Sarah invites Scotty to the party out of spite it draws you into the show even more.
The real message of this episode focuses on relationships and how we often compare to our parents relationship which is perfectly natural because thats the one you grow up with. But I think we can never really compare it as we the children are completely different from the parents. This particular episode shows all the possibilites of how the children of those would look at the situation through the characters. It brings it back to the fact that the show is so relatable to the audience.
Overall, I think this episode really gets you thinking about relationships and thats why I love this episode. I also can’t leave without mentioning Nora’s speech at the party I would have done it the same way. So passionate and brave there is no other way you should make your husband’s mistress feel small!
As usual feel free to comment below!

Brothers & Sisters Season 1 Episode 2

What tragedy comes next?

It’s just one tradegy after another in this episode from embezzelement to Justin’s drunken disorderly conduct. The episode uses a spiral affect to show how grief affects us. This is sometimes overrated because there are different ways of dealing with grief. I think it would have been better to have shown how they dealt with their grief in different ways but not by taking it out on each other.

I love the fact they bring in political comments about President Bush and immigration. It makes it more intellectually interesting and contreversial which I love in a show. It also shows this interesting divide between Kitty and her mother which causes so much of a whirlwind in their relationship and their family.

The mysterious woman’s past has been solved which will soon tear the family apart.

I love the ending – it’s so topical. They end it on the coast of the Pacific Ocean, commenting on how the Pacific has so many shades of blue. This is a reference to the age old tale that all families have so many layers to them.
