New Comics Wednesday (continued...)

Picked up some more comics today at the other comic book store.  Some of these are from last week instead of this week...

Archie & Friends #107 -- This is the one with the Web guest-shot in the Katy Keene story.   Except it's not really the Web, its about Katy filming a movie about the Web, so I'm not sure why they are promoting it so heavily.  It's not a bad story, but Mighty Crusader fans will be disappointed.
The Spirit #3 -- The Spirit's origin.  Like many golden age heroes, the Spirit's origin isn't that important to understanding the character.  But I guess it does have to be gone over sometime, and Darwin Cooke does a bravura job in the art, using a completely different art and coloring style on the origin flashback, plus writing tricks like multiple perspective to liven things up.   But the story still isn't all that interesting...
Thunderbolts #111 -- It's fascinating to see how the various villains are manipulating each other, and above that the government is manipulating them.  That part is like the Suicide Squad, and I like it.  But the Suicide Squad was working towards noble goals (most of the time), and this team isn't.  In the long run, why bother reading about these horrible people doing horrible things?
Thunderbolts Presents: Zemo -- Born Better #1 -- This miniseries is about what happened to Baron Zemo, leader of the last version of the Thunderbolts.  Turns out he was blown back in time to 1503 to witness his family history and find out why the Barons Zemo are such pricks.  I'm not sure where this is going, but I'm intrigued...
Witchblade Manga #1 --  Occasionally, I'll pick up a Witchblade comic, drawn in by the art, only to be disappointed by the story.  Guess what?  They got me again!
Wonder Woman #4 -- Really late, but still a good read,  If this were coming out monthly, I think it really would have revitalized Wonder Woman.  As it is, I think everyone has forgotten about it.

I guess Top Cow has been working with Studio Gonzo for a while to make a Witchblade anime, and since the anime will also be released in Japan, Gonzo decided to make some manga to introduce Japan to the Witchblade concept. So it is real manga made by real Japanese manga-ka.

But it still isn't any good.
