COMIC REVIEWS!!

Screen Shot 2019-07-06 at 1.37.22 PMWolverine vs Blade #1 (Marvel Comics)

Lots of times comics fall through the cracks. Whether a series is cancelled too early or it’s a one shot that’s been lost in a drawer somewhere, many times whenever there’s a comic coming out that seemingly has no real reason for being released, that’s the case. And it’s probably definitely the case for Marc Guggenheim and Dave Wilkin’s Wolverine vs Blade one shot, a comic that feels like a relic from the mid-00’s brought to today.

Comic Reviews: X-Men Gold and Batman!

COMIC REVIEWS!!!

indexX-Men Gold #1 (Marvel Comics)

At long last, the X-Men have returned to their rightful place as a premiere Marvel team. Our first look at the new “ResurrXion” direction of the X-Men was glimpsed in the X-Men Prime special last week, but now we’ve got the official start of X-Men Gold, the team that features long time favorites like Colossus, Nightcrawler, Storm, Kitty Pryde, and Old Man Logan. Gold is being set up as the flagship book for the X-Men going forward, and writer Marc Guggenheim and artist Ardian Syaf definitely have a clear vision for the mutants going forward, one that’s more in the super hero mode than recent takes on the characters.

Now that the dust has settled on IvX, it’s time for Marvel to start revving up for the next installment of the X-Men franchise, RessurXion. Of course, this means it’s time for a special one-shot issue that will set the stage for the upcoming X-Men books coming your way next month. Featuring the creative teams behind almost every major title in the RessurXion event, X-Men Prime serves as the perfect book to get you back into the world of Marvel’s Merry Mutants, but if you’re looking for any jaw-dropping revelations, you’ll be disappointed.

Gold and Blue Team Assemble!

resurrxion-group-teaseLike most Marvel press releases, we now know the fallout of their next big event before it even began. Yes, the events of Inhumans vs. X-Men will lead to “RessurXion”, which will feature the return of the Gold and Blue teams of X-Men that were made popular in the 90’s. Until now we didn’t know who was going to be a part of these teams or the creative teams involved, but now we finally have an idea (and it probably hasn’t spoiled Inhumans vs. X-Men at all-not).

Comic Reviews: All-Star Batman and The Accused!

AllStarRebirthBats-854f7All-Star Batman #1 (DC Comics)  

After months away from the Dark Knight, superstar writer Scott Snyder has returned with All-Star Batman. Teaming Snyder with a rotating superstar artist, this series has all of the makings for something truly special. I’m a huge fan of Snyder’s run on Batman, but that run really only scratched the surface of the Dark Knight’s rogues gallery. With All-Star, Snyder’s putting the focus on Two-Face, the man who was once Harvey Dent, and with John Romita Jr. on the art for this arc, All-Star is a great return for the writer that goes into some pretty interesting places you wouldn’t expect.

Comic Reviews: Rocketeer At War and Patsy Walker, AKA Hellcat!

RocketeerWar01_cvrRocketeer At War #1 (of 4) (IDW)

I’m a massive fan of The Rocketeer, so when IDW had announced a few years ago that they had the license for the character and were bringing new stories to comic shops I was very excited. But a lot of the new stories left me cold, and after his crossover with The Spirit ended, I figured I’d seen the last of new adventures with Cliff Secord. Thankfully that’s not the case, as Marc Guggenheim and Dave Bullock’s Rocketeer At War hits this week, and finally reveals the untold story of how the Rocketeer entered World War 2.
