My Smash Up Comic reviews are a combination of new releases, one-shots, and comic stories that haven’t finished their runs yet. I don’t give stars to the comic stories that are not finished. Instead, I will say if I will want to continue the series or not.

Star Wars Bounty Hunters #1 and #2
Writer: Ethan Sacks
Artist: Paolo Villanelli
Colorist: Arif Prianto
Letterer: VC’s Travis Lanham
Bounty Hunters begins with a back story that ends in betrayal. It then flashes to current times as the comic sets up all the bounty hunters. They all set out to track down the hunter that stabbed them in the back. Issue 1 had a lot of events, and a lot of different character points of view jammed packed in one comic. Issue 2 did a better job, in my opinion allowing the readers to get better familiar with our main characters. The writer gives us some character development in each character’s POV and some past events. I enjoyed issue 2 a lot better than the first, but they were both fun reads. I liked the little hint the writer gave with Boba Fett about what time this takes place during the significant events of Star Wars. I will definitely be picking up issue 3.
Red Sonja Age of Chaos #1, #2, and #3
Writer: Erik Brunham
Artist: Jonathan Lau
Colorist: Andrew Dalhouse
Letterer: Carlos S. Mangual
Chaos Comics teams up with Dynamite in this world-ending tale. The villains and heroes of Chaos Comics face off against each other in a battle for Gath’s amulet. Their fight sends them to the past. Where it is up to Red Sonja to put an end to the death of our world. This story takes place after Sonja’s adventures in the future. Chasity teams up with Red Sonja as Lady Demon acts as a hostile guide informing the duo about the events that have and will transpire if the amulet is not recovered. The story and art in this series have been amazing. This has been a fun read, and I am looking forward to the fight scenes that are going to be taking place. I will be picking up issue 4 when it is released.
Peter Porker, the Spectacular Spider-Ham 1-4
Writer: Zeb Wells
Artist: Will Robson
Colorist: Erick Arciniega
Letterer: VC’s Joe Caramagana
What can I say about this comic? Peter Porker, The Spectacular Spider-Ham, is a five-part mini-series, and it is ridiculous. I enjoy goofy, corny humor, and this comic has it in abundance. This comic won’t be for everyone, but if you enjoy outrageous humor, then this may be for you. Spider-Ham teams up with Spider-Man as they are teleported through Spider-Ham’s world’s history. Each jump through time morphs Spider-Ham. As they chase down who is responsible for Spider-Ham’s world being destroyed. This story has parallel universes, time jumping, battles, a crazy twist at the end of issue 4, and of course, bad puns and jokes. I am enjoying it, and I am looking forward to the conclusion in issue 5.
