Ultimate Comics The Ultimates #13 is Humphries first solo issue and done pretty well. Seems to have nailed all the charcters voices and it was great to have Cap back. Billy Tan also was all right.

FF #20 is another super solid issue by Hickman detailing the return of the inhumans. More Future/present Val and Franklin interactions!

The Manhattan Projects #5 dammit Hickman, stop being so good at writing stuff. The opening scene from the preview is pretty funny / weird.

Venom #21 brings the Savage Six arc to a close. I wonder if Toxin will be invlolved with Minimum Carnage at all. It was a pretty satisfying conclusion, yet slightly predictable.

    So, no new Green Lantern on Comixology. That did come out today right?

    Another thing, I was eying the new Kid Eternity by Lemire and Hamner. (I never even knew this was coming out, one shot? mini?)

    Four bucks is a bit steep for a character I'm unfamiliar with so if anyone else buys it this week sell me on it.

    On Venom:
    Wait, wasn't Toxin a good guy? I'm not reading the series, so I don't know what's up, but wasn't Toxin introduced as a symbiote with a moral blank slate, bonded to a cop, and then the cop was raising him to be good and being his moral compass? What happened in the last couple of years?

    Uncanny X-force #28, Betsy takes the whole asian ninja thing right into a stereotype:
    30 years into the future, Kid Apocalypse turns into normal bad Apocalypse, and Wolverine gets a punch of people together to kill him once and for all. A grateful public allows them to become the new leaders, with Betsy at the helm, who then pull a Minority Report and start pre-killing people who would be criminals.

    Remender killed the cop and gave the symbiote to Eddie Brock. It's awful.

    John Constantine barging in decked out in magical artifacts made my nipples hard like diamonds. And Timothy Hunter is back! Yes! My only real complaint is the last page reveal. I'm not inclined to believe that Doctor Mist is a bad guy or anything, these types of things almost always end up being fake-outs, but assuming it's real- the stoic black guy with no real personality (yet) gets shafted. Great.

    It's no Ribic art for sure, but I like Tan better than Ross/army of artists. The Iron Man design when first announced definitly seemed weird to me, but it grew on me throughout the issue (also nice to have an original to the Ultimate verse design again)

    The art does appear to be....slightly off, if not given a lack of time to be "refined" as it were.

    If nothing else, at least it's not the 616 armor and designs now.

  • OwenashiOwenashi Registered User regular
    I mentioned the armor looking off for some reason in the Ultimate Marvel thread. It feels like the size of the torso compared to the size of the limbs are off. Either the former's drawn too big or the latter were drawn too small.

    Well I think most retailers got the copies, and when I asked my LCS they said that they knew all the other guys were putting it out so it would be fiscally irresponsible of them not to.

    Diamond changed their shipping policies last year so Retailers got their copies sooner. Due to that, Batman Inc was already on the way or in the possession of most retailers when DC said they were going to delay it. At that point, it became a question of whether or not retailers would honor that or not.

    does the issue have something to do with what happened or are they just delaying bat books as a sign of respect or something like that?

    It had some terrorism scenes, cause of course within 10 hrs of the announcement that they were delaying it out of respect, Bleeding Cool put up scans of the offensive material.

    Regular Avengers was kinda boring this week, but Secret Avengers #29 was awesome:

    Max Fury and the Masters of Evil are collecting dangerous artifacts for some sinister reason. John Steele gets killed when trying to run away with one.
    Turns out Tasky has the third and Venom goes undercover as his bad self to infiltrate the The Hole, a super villain stripper bar where Taskmaster is hanging out.

    Ultimates 13 was what the Avengers titles should be. An ongoing that constantly feels like an event. And as much as I love Hickman, this is the book I was expecting from the get go. Humphries' work so far seems to blend high-concept with more straightforward storytelling (Our Love is Real, Higher Earth, this), so I look forward to what he does.

    Also, Secret Avengers 29 was pretty rad, but my wallet is bleeding. I kind of hope this whole descendants/shadow council/masters of evil/bagalia thing is just a way to get everything in one place for a big finish before the Now stuff all comes out.

    Eh
    Remender is a writer who is not afraid of killing a character and with the signs pointing to some new additions to the team in the coming months I doubt Betsy or Jean-Phillipe will be coming back anytime soon.

    Which partially bums me out because Fantomex is one of my favorite X-Dudes, but I trust Remender's ability as a writer enough to still be totally interested in where the book is going and forgive the death.

    X-Treme X-Men #1 - Shit's gonna get weird in this book

    This book was so, so fun. From Dazzler's opening scenes ("Everything's coming up Dazzler!") to the final page, it was just a really great book. And Stephen Segovia, whose work I've been critical of in the past, did really nice work here. Just a great book all around.

    X-Treme X-Men #1 Preview

    From Deadpool #58; in his weakened state, Deadpool finds himself being hunted by Black Box, and his various superhuman operatives. Which forces him to get creative.
    Sitting on the toilet and reading a magazine, Deadpool is suddenly interrupted by Black Swan, a mercenary with a score to settle. Wade does the only rational thing, and launches a boucing betty landmine from his toilet tank, and dives into the bathtub. Cue flashback.

    i6MPn.jpg
    I love that gleeful expression, as well as the fact Wade's plan required him to literally be caught with his pants down. Salva Espin, as always, draws the Hell out of it.

    Deadpool #58 Preview

    In Dark Avengers #178, the team find themselves facing off against constructs built by the Sultan Magus, while the time-lost Thunderbolts encounter trouble of a different kind.
    NLm9M.jpg
    Boss Cage, the lawman of the future. I love that his helmet is just one of Iron Man's, with the bottom cut off. Also that he's Judge Dredd.

    Dark Avengers #178 Preview

    Haunt #25 finds Mirage, the freelance spy, protecting a cartel kingpin in Mexico, while the Kilgore brothers recuperate from their last adventure.
    Mirage, seeking information about her job, gets in touch with Whisper, who was portrayed throughout the Kirkman/McFarlane/Capullo run, as being something of a crotchety old information broker. Joe Casey, in typical Joe Casey fashion, injects a little bit of weird into him.

    0oVGi.jpg
    I really love the way Robbi Rodriguez draws the prostitute's expression, as she changes out of the fetish gear. It's equal parts amusement and boredom.

    Haunt #25 Preview

    Grim Leaper #3 has the two star-crossed lovers growing more comfortable with their body-hopping situation, and deciding to take proactive measures.
    While the lead story by Wiebe and Santos is perfectly fine, it's mostly just setup for the final issue. But, the backup story, about a man who falls in love with Siri, is delightful. For most of the five page story, we see him marveling at how helpful and wonderful she is, as she helps people with movie reviews, directions, and measurements. Until--

    4wT6K.jpg

    Grim Leaper #3 Preview

    Debris #1 introduces the reader to a world where humanity live inside small, walled-off communities, to protect themselves from mechanical monsters.
    JHid8.jpg
    Between stuff like Prophet and Planetoid launching recently, I feel like the market for post-apocalyptic worlds with tribal humans and sparse technology, is getting a little saturated. But, this book has an entirely different feel from either of those books. There's something almost whimsical, or Miyazaki-like, about the world.

    That's helped along greatly by Owen Gieni's colors, who makes Rossmo's art pop in a way I don't think it ever has. Rossmo's known as a guy who does gritty, gloomy work, fitting of a horror or noir book. But this issue showed how much range he really has, when given the right colorist.

    Debris #1 Preview

    In Prophet #27, old John Prophet goes looking for his former allies, hoping to find some still alive. But, he's been sleeping for a very long time.
    2XP6P.jpg
    I really love his weary narration. There's something about immortal/long-lived characters, that always strikes a chord with me. The idea of being old and alone, with all the great accomplishments you fought, bled, and sacrificed for long forgotten, is incredibly poignant, to me.

    I also love Milonogiannis' little cartoon death bubble in the last panel. I love it when comics that are mostly drawn in a straight fashion, put a little exaggerated humor in there.

    Additionally, Graham continues to bring the weird, with the entire story taking place on a planet that's made from interweaving plant creatures. Oh, and there are giant albino space-sharks.
