Have you been reading the regular Infinity reviews over the last few months by Biff Bam Pop’s own Glenn Walker? You know, Infinity. Infinity? The B-I-G Marvel Comics event that just wrapped up last week with the final issue in the “mini-series”? (I use quotes because beyond the sic=x main Infinity books, there were tie-in books that brought the total chapter count to well over twenty.) Jeez, where have you been? Well, get caught up on the latest (and last) Infinity review by our pal Glenn, right here.
Now, I loved Infinity. To me, it ranks up there as one of the greatest event comics I’ve ever read. For those asking, DC’s 1985 series, Crisis On Infinite Earths is still the greatest of the great but Infinity ranks a solid second.
Still, Infinity ended the same way all of these recent “event” series seem to end: with a continuation into yet another “event” series! Oh, the Inhumanity!
Is it still Wednesday somewhere on this planet? No? Damn.
You know, there are those weeks where you’ve forgotten to pick up some new, hot comic book on your weekly Wednesday run. It happens once in a while.
Sometimes you forget to buy an item, sometimes the shop forgets to stock the shelves with a particular item, sometimes they even forget to order it entirely and you’re left running to another local shop to pick it up.
This past Wednesday, it was the former.
This past Wednesday, the long-awaited Avengers: Endless Wartime was released. And if you didn’t pick it up, well, today will have to do!
After several weeks of reruns, “Avengers Assemble” finally returned with new episodes two weeks ago, unfortunately while I was on vacation. Now I’m playing catch up. So you get this review in tape delay. So get all your Kindergarten Cop Attuma (“It’s not Attuma!”) jokes ready, because here comes my review of the ‘lost’ episode of “Avengers Assemble,” after the jump – “Depth Charge.”
Last week, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” did phenomenal numbers in the ratings. That was coming off of a lot of hype, and a lead-in that was basically the billion dollar big screen blockbuster, Marvel’s The Avengers. This week is the litmus test. Was it just a flash in the pan, or were the glowing reviews, including one right here. We’ll see how the second episode, “0-8-4,” rates, after the jump.
The Hulk’s show, “Agents of S.M.A.S.H.,” got kicked to the curb for this morning, but it’s all good as he’s the featured player in today’s episode of “Avengers Assemble.” Everyone on the team is getting into the act and Hulking out this week. Join me after the jump for my review of “Hulked Out Heroes.”
Yeah, I know. I’m a bad reviewer. I had been reviewing the Marvel Comics crossover event called Infinity by Jonathan Hickman on a week by week basis here at Biff Bam Pop!, but since Marvel didn’t halt their publishing schedule to accommodate my vacation, I’m a little behind. To make up for it, today I’ll be talking about four different Infinity comics. Meet me after the jump for my spoiler-filled thoughts on New Avengers #10, Infinity #3, Avengers #20, and Infinity: Heist #1.
Finally it’s here – Joss Whedon’s television series sequel to Marvel’s The Avengers and the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We begin with a brief introduction to that world, a New York rocked by gods, aliens, monsters, knights and men out of time. That’s followed up by a civilian superhero making a rescue, and a secret agent just doing his job, but this is Joss Whedon, so nothing is really as it seems. My review begins after the jump.
