New York, NY – August 21, 2017 – This fall, a new day will shine on the Marvel Universe with your favorite heroes, your favorite creators… where every story is an event! More after the jump!
New York, NY—October 20th, 2016 — He is the greatest evil the universe has ever known. An unstoppable force whose name is whispered in hushed tones across the galaxy. Feared from one end of the cosmos to the other, he’s returned to take back what is rightfully his! Today, Marvel is pleased to present your first look inside THANOS #1 – the new ongoing series from all-star creators Jeff Lemire (Moon Knight, Death of X) and Mike Deodato (Avengers, Invincible Iron Man)! Venture into the dark depths of one of Marvel’s most vile villains as he enacts vengeance on all who would stand in his way. In his absence, Thanos’ grip on the cosmos has loosened. As he returns to the stars to terrorize the galaxy once more, reborn and reinvigorated – are there any that can stop him? Many will try, including members of his own family – Thane, Starfox and many others. Will they succeed where others have failed?
Folks who know me know that Kang the Conqueror is my favorite Avengers villain. They also know I believe that he is their ultimate archenemy, not Ultron, not the Masters of Evil, not Zodiac, and certainly not Thanos or the Squadron Supreme, but Kang. Here in the twelfth episode of the third season, he finally makes his Avengers Assemble debut. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “The Conqueror.”
Finally the Guardians of the Galaxy have found the Cosmic Seed, on Earth, where Thanos found them and took it from them like they were children (I could make a Star-Lord joke here, but I’ll refrain). Now Thanos is using the Seed to make the Earth into his own super-weapon, who can stop him? Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “I Feel the Earth Move.”
For too long in the Guardians of the Galaxy‘s quest for the Cosmic Seed, we have been thinking of it as an object, but it may be more than that. This powerful MacGuffin may also have been affecting our heroes’ actions as well. Check out my review of “I’ve Been Searching So Long” after the jump.
The Guardians of the Galaxy animated series is back from the dead. Well, not dead, really. I knew there would be a second season, but really, I thought we were done with the first season already. The Guardians are back however, along with Nebula, Ronan, and the Grandmaster. Meet me after the jump for my review of “Fox on the Run.”
Choosing Sides, the companion title to Civil War II, is out this week, more an anthology loosely linked to the ongoing story than anything else, it treats us to tales of Nick Fury, Night Thrasher, and Damage Control. Also out this week is the newest issue of Ultimates, retelling the start of this crossover event. Check out my reviews after the jump.
We’ve seen the preludes to war in Civil War II in issue #0 and the Free Comic Book Day special, which I talked about here, but this week the main event begins with Civil War II #1. Writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist David Marquez bring us the next big epic from Marvel Comics, and you’ve got my thoughts on it, after the jump.
We’ve all heard the hype about Marvel Comics next big event, a sequel to the acclaimed mini-series that inspired the biggest movie of the year so far, yeah, I’m talking about Marvel’s Civil War II. It began at the start of this month with a Free Comic Book Day special, and then this past week with a zero issue. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on the prelude to Civil War II.
