Lockjaw & The Pet Avengers #1! Woof, Meow, Squawk!

Review for issue #1 with some help from G-Man's pets.

Yes, it's the Pet Avengers.  Check it out.  You might be surprised.

  


It was an enjoyable comic.  I know there will be some turning up their noses thinking this is just too silly.  If so, you're missing out on a fun time.

Who do you think the Pet Avengers should take on?  What happens if they find all the Infinity Gems?  Why is Ms. Lion called "Ms." if he's a boy?  What other "pets" might they run across?

I gave it PICK OF THE WEEK for this week.

I loved it. I had fun. I like Throg. Three Word Sentences.

Smells like genius. :]

If G-Man AND I agree that a comic is awesome, then it HAS to be awesome.

Dang it! I was so debating picking this up and decided against it. Now I wish I hadn't.

I almost missed it at my comic shop.  I was looking for "Pet Avengers" instead of "LOCKJAW and the Pet Avengers."  So glad I asked.  I thought it had sold out already.

I grabbed the last copy at my store and felt no shame.

G-Cat doesn't look impressed... but I like fun comics like this.  So glad that Niels isn't P-Cat, the Penitent Puss anymore!

G-Cat can be a little grumpy at times.  As you could see, I could barely keep him making the appearance he promised before he bolted.  He had better things to do, like lay in a patch of sunlight in the living room.

I don't blame G-Cat for teleporting out of there, after he was forced to endure G-Dog's mutant canine powers of gastric expulsion...  Or is he really the original Ceiling Cat...?!

My dog has some serious gas problems.  My daughter always cracks up 'cuz you can hear him "toot" from the other room.  He does sometimes (like during the video) release some "silent but violent" ones.  That just may be his superpower.

Aces to your dog!  He is a flatulence emanator.  I think your cat was thinking, "Who smelt it dealt it."  Looks like a fun comic, but had to pass, not because I am "above" the type of comic, but finances.  It seemed to be selling well at the comic book shop I frequent, only a few copies left.

omg G-Man's pets are so cute. I'll check it out :D

I like pets too!

Update:

Issue #1 has sold out at Diamond.  There still might be copies at your local comic shop.  Give them a call.  If they're out, ask them to order you a copy of the reprint.  It'll be out on June 17.  Issue #2 comes out on June 10.

Aaaaaand, there's going to be a presidential cameo in issue #3.  No, it's not who you think. It's going to be Bo Obama, America's First Dog!

Here's the cover of the reprint.

I would have liked that.  She did make it on to the cover of the Marvels Handbook to super Pets :)

Oh wow, didn't know that.
Since they killed off Old Lace in the Runaways, she should have moved into the Pet Avengers   ):
I miss Old Lace.

Yes, I'd have preferred to have her in an on-going series instead of... 'the way of the dinosaurs' :(
