Have you heard the rumors? A second S.H.I.E.L.D. show featuring super-powered agents?

All this plus the secret behind May’s nickname The Cavalry, check out my review of “Melinda,” after the jump.

Meet me after the super speed jump for my thoughts on “All-Star Team-Up.”

Yesterday we lost one of the true legends of the comics world, artist-inker-writer Herb Trimpe. Sometimes an artist does a character so well that the definitive version of that character is theirs; in Trimpe’s case, that would be the Incredible Hulk.  More after the jump.

Marvel Comics released an original graphic novel this week, Avengers: Rage of Ultron, written by Rick Remender and illustrated by Jerome Opena, with Pepe Larraz, and additional inks by Mark Morales. Supposedly in continuity the story pits the Avengers of today and yesterday against the threat of Ultron, ending with mind-boggling circumstances and an insubstantial cliffhanger. The title nails it – rage, which is what I felt while reading it. Be prepared for spoilers, and meet me after the time jump for my angry thoughts about Rage of Ultron.
