Coloring Book Review: Deadpool and Age of Ultron

Deadpool Coloring book

Color Your Own Deadpool

With adult coloring books all the rage right now, Marvel has their own line. And I, of course, had to buy them.

This Deadpool coloring book states that it isn’t for children. There are some violent scenes, but that’s the extent. There are plenty of humorous images. And the fantastically-drawn images range from incredibly detailed to more simplistic. I love the variety in this book.
It’s definitely one of my favorites.

And then, there’s:

Color Your Own Age of Ultron

The Age of Ultron book is great too. But the number of intricate artwork far outweighs the more simplistic. And it wouldn’t be bad, but some of the scenes are a bit repetitive. And my gray markers/coloring pencils got a LOT of workout from all the dull images of destruction in the first few pages. Thankfully, the superheroes wear colorful clothes.

Marvel will be releasing Color Your Own Civil War in April 2016 (I’ve already pre-ordered as the price is discounted right now) and Color Your Own Little Marvels in June 2016.


Graphic Novel Review: Grayson Volume 2: We All Die at Dawn

Grayson Volume 2: We All Die at Dawn

Synopsis:
Grayson and Helena Bertinelli, a.k.a. Huntress, join together and take on some of their toughest foes yet. Dick is on a mission to stop Paragon from using the body parts of a dead villain to create something far more sinister, he goes toe-to-toe with the Midnighter, and he and Helena battle foes from their past–the Fist of Cain.

Review:
We All Die at Dawn collects GRAYSON #5-9, and GRAYSON: FUTURES END #1. Grayson has infiltrated Spyral, a mind-altering covert organization. Grayson uses all of his past experience and diverse abilities to stay on the side of right, despite his nefarious connections.

I really enjoyed Grayson Volume 1, so I was looking forward to this one. Volume 1 was an exciting spy thriller with a fun mystery. Unfortunately, I found this second installment to be a choppy, confusing mess. Some of the new characters are never explained, so I wasn’t sure who they were supposed to be. The scenes jumped around too much to confusing interactions. The only saving grace was a fantastic ending. The humor, action, and artwork helped end this story on a good note.

Smugglers Bounty

Star Wars Resistance Patch and Pin – these are small collectibles included in each box.

Smugglers Bounty

Resistance POP Tshirt (Retail $10?) – I’m not crazy about POP shirts, because they’re a bit too cutesy. But this one does have a lot of fun characters, so it may end up as a sleep shirt for my niece.

Smugglers Bounty

C3PO POP Mug – These POP mugs are really weird, and don’t really work well. And are terrible to clean. I don’t need another collector-only item. I wish they’d either switch to traditional mug design or stick to the POP figures, not mugs. This is a fail.

Smugglers Bounty

EXCLUSIVE (Force Awakens) Flocked Chewbacca Funko POP – As you can see, he’s fuzzy all over and super cute. I love this one. Though, I do wonder why they chose to do ANOTHER flocked Chewbacca, when GameStop already has an exclusive flocked Chewie. This is fuzzier and “older” but let’s face it, he really didn’t age much. I wish they would have gotten a little more creative here.

Summary: I was really bummed there wasn’t an exclusive Poe POP, as this was a RESISTANCE theme. And he or Leia should have been included. Hopefully, they do another soon!
