Welcome back to our new series in which we review the comics that we read every week. This week Seppin is going to be reviewing West Coast Avengers #1 by Kelly Thompson and art by Stefano Caselli.
I don’t want to write this review. I hated reading this book. The only reason that I decided to read it was because it was a new #1 and because I like it when Hawkeye(Clint Barton) and Hawkeye(Kate Bishop) work together.
However, this story sucks. Land-Sharks brings the team together.
It’s just so dumb! And then we get a team recruitment portion, which is supposed to be funny. Only, it isn’t. There is some guy who is called bread man and he appears on the panel for way too long for a joke that carried on too long. Also, Gwenpool. I know that there are some fans of Gwenpool, at least I assume that there are because I can’t possibly understand why else she is still a viable character. She was a joke about Gwen Stacy coming back, so Deadpool had to have his own version, like Lady Deadpool. I just don’t really like her character. She’s more annoying and Meta, than Wade. How is that possible?
So the team ends up being Hawkeye, Hawkeye, Miss America( A great character, that is sadly being torn down by this trash), Fuse( Kate’s boyfriend. I guess he has superpowers. He doesn’t seem important to know), the woman that shall not be named, Quintin Quire( A bigger brat than Damian Wayne), and him…
… at this point, I really wished that Bread Man had joined the team because I reckon that he would have made the story more interesting.
As for the story, I like the idea of a previous member turned bad. It’s Tigra, by the way. I don’t really care for spoilers in this because the story sucks. If you decide to cut your eyes out, then it is not my fault. The “biggest” issue I have with Tigra’s villainess portrayal is that for some reason they made her huge. Like Godzilla huge. Which doesn’t make any sense yet?
Please don’t read this. It ruins what the original West Coast Avengers was and you are better off reading the old stories instead.
(How good is the story? Does it stand up to others?)
(Does it tell the story? Does it work well with the character?)
(Does this story need to be told? Is it helping the Character?)
(Is the character represented well? Does the writer understand the character?)
