TOMY has announced a new figurine to go with all the products listed for Movie 20: “Pokémon I Choose You”! It’s a metallic Ho-Oh figurine wich will go on sale on July 15th, 2017. Price will be around 1 300 yen.
This issue really made me like Janet Van Dyne. Her internal
monologue was well-written and authentic. She came across as smart, witty, sure
of herself, and not the one note fashion designer I remember from the Avengers
stories of my youth. The way she takes care of Nadia (the titular Unstoppable
Wasp) is heartwarming and fun. We get to see her roll with an accidental broken
nose, work together with Nadia to defeat goofy supervillains The Beetle and
Whirlwind, and use her connections and charm to repair Nadia’s rapidly
splintering G.I.R.L. (Genius in Action Research Labs) from falling apart before
it can get started. Janet spends the whole book telling the audience how much
she isn’t a mom type while acting like the best kind of mom possible. I don’t
normally go for feel-good reading, but dammit if this book didn’t make me
sniffle a little bit when I read it, and return to sniffle again multiple
times. Writer Jeremy Whitley definitely has a handle on the character of Janet,
and knows how to mix action and emotion nicely.
The art is a little kiddy-looking for my taste. But I
realize I’m probably not the intended audience here; there are plenty of titles
for adult white males to enjoy that feature more standard comic book artwork.
This doesn’t happen to be one of them. But if it works for the intended
audience, I have no issues with it. And the visual storytelling is pretty
damned impressive, especially the page where Janet and Beetle tumble down a staircase,
fighting all the while. Artist Veronica Fish’s use of non-standard panels in
timely ways is subtle but noteworthy.
