771624._SX1280_QL80_TTD_I was feeling excited this week because there were so many cool titles that came out this week so I am being generous and I am giving you a second comic book of the week. About five or six years ago, I was going through the toy section of a store and I came across this cool looking figure that read Death’s Head. I had to know more about this character so I did some research on him. Now fast forward to a couple of weeks ago as I was looking through a comic that advertised that Death’s Head #1 was coming and I literally exploded with joy. The new miniseries from Marvel comics was written by Tini Howard (Guardians Of The Galaxy) and illustrated by Kei Zama (Scarlet Witch). One minute Death’s Head is in space and he is trying to make a deal with his employer Yondu and then the next thing you know he wakes up on stage in New York City where he is being used as an amp. As things begin to spiral out of control, half of the members of The Young Avengers in Hulkling and Wiccan show up and they decide to do battle with the galaxy’s most lethal bounty hunter.

Opera Snapshot_2019-07-31_214757_twitter.comI have to admit that at first I was a little confused with the pacing of the events that were going on because I am not that familiar with the Young Avengers. Some things just begin to happen and sometimes they happen out of nowhere in this comic book which I think was the confusing part for me. I am usually a fan of Tini Howard’s because I have read most of her work in Guardians, Rick & Morty, and even the stuff for the WWE. Once the issue rolled on, things began to become more clearer and things started to get real good to the point that I will definitely be back to check out issue two. I always usually give comic books one more chance to try and impress me enough to want to continue reading. The one thing about this comic that I loved was the artwork by Kei Zama. It is like Kei has taken us back to the days of the old with the classic comic book look and I absolutely love it. It is definitely the element of the comic that definitely saved my interest for sure. I am a huge geek for nostalgia and this definitely brings me back which made me happy. I say this with every issue that I review and that is take my opinion with a grain of salt. I am not here to persuade you to not read the comic, but I am just giving my opinion of what I liked and you can take it from there. The cliffhanger (the hook) at the end has me curious to see what happens next. Check out my grades below:
