Comic Reviews: Wolverine vs Blade and Reaver!

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: Aero and No One Left To Fight!

COMIC REVIEWS!!

AeroAero #1 (Marvel Comics)

Like all major events, War of the Realms set up some new characters in the hopes of giving them their own series. Unlike other events, those new characters have more things in common with popular Manga series than other comics on the shelves, and the latest series Aero, from Zhou Liefen and artist Keng, serves as a pretty intriguing start for a brand new hero in the Marvel universe.

Comic Reviews: Spider-Man Annual and Conan The Barbarian!

Spider-Man AnnualSpider-Man Annual #1 (Marvel Comics)

Ever since he stole the show in Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse, everyone’s been wondering just when we’d see Spider-Ham in the pages of a Marvel comic again. Sure, he played a role in the Spider-Geddon event, but he was never the main featured character in that event. But Peter Porker has a starring role at last in the Spider-Man Annual, and he’s got a pretty stellar creative team with Jason Latour, Phil Lord, and David Lafuente helping to bring him into a brand new adventure.

Comic Reviews: Event Leviathan and Silver Surfer: Black!

indexEvent Leviathan #1 (DC Comics)

With the Summer officially kicking off, it’s time for the old comic book standby: major line-wide events. While the DC events typically veer into the universe encompassing mega stories, Event Leviathan is a more grounded one, detailing the secret agent side of the DC universe, which isn’t a big surprise when you see the names on the credits for the issue: Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev.

When I reviewed the first issue of Dceased, I mentioned that if the series was able to actually pull no punches, it would be something really interesting. And now that I’ve read the second issue, I can tell you that this book definitely takes the risks I was hoping it would, and the Tom Taylor and Trevor Hairsine series is the definitely going to take DC fans to some very dark places.

Comic Review: Doctor Strange and Jabba The Hutt!

Mark Waid’s run on Stephen Strange has been a lot different from others, mainly because it’s been less about Doctor Strange facing off with magical threats, and more focused on the Sorcerer Supreme fighting against cosmic threats. It’s a weird decision, but Mark Waid and Barry Kitson’s Doctor Strange #14 has a lot of fun with this idea by giving Stephen Strange his weirdest title yet: Herald of Galactus.

The War of the Realms continues on, and this time we’re getting a new batch of Avengers to make sure Midgard doesn’t go to hell thanks to Malekith. War of the Realms: Strikeforce: War Avengers, the latest one-shot tie in from Dennis Hopeless, Kim Jacinto, and Ario Anindito may not be an essential read for the overall story, but is plenty entertaining nonetheless.

Comic Reviews: Savage Avengers and DCEased!

SAV_AVENGERS_1Savage Avengers #1 (Marvel Comics)

We all knew it was only a matter of time for Marvel to have Conan The Barbarian cross over into the Marvel universe, but I don’t think anyone was expecting it to happen this soon, and in a title like Savage Avengers. A new series from Gerry Duggan and Mike Deodato. Jr, this offshoot of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes brings together Wolverine, The Punisher, Venom, Doctor Voodoo, Elektra, and Conan the Barbarian to take on only the most brutal of missions. No, they’re not officially sanctioned (yet), and yes, at first glance making Conan an Avenger is a major eye-roll moment. But surprisingly, this opening issue isn’t just chock full of ridiculous action, it’s also one of the most fun comics of the year. Read the rest of this entry

Ever since the Punisher MAX run, it’s been hard to put Frank Castle in the main Marvel universe. With the exception of Matthew Rosenberg’s current Punisher run, any time that Frank Castle is put into the main Marvel universe it puts the character in a difficult position. But Punisher is a popular character, and isn’t immune to big sweeping line-wide events, so the War of the Realms is coming for Frank Castle, and surprisingly Gerry Duggan and Marcelo Feirrera’s War of the Realms: Punisher tie-in miniseries is a blast to read, and doesn’t try to force the character into an area that he’s not comfortable in.

We’ve all seen the stories of a big war in a fantasy realm, but what happens when the war is over? That’s the main crux of Fairlady, a new fantasy series from Brian Schirmer and Claudia Balboni that plays a little like Lord Of the Rings, a little like Magnum P.I, and ends up being a whole lot of fun.
