Cover Of The Day 10/30/15

Marvel’s recently launched All New All Different branding yielded a new Invincible Iron Man series by Brian Michael Bendis considered to be one of the cornerstone titles of the new Marvel U. Prior to this series beginning Bendis had been hinting at a second Iron Man series that would run concurrent to Invincible. My money was on a Mary Jane series since it had been solicited that she was going to become a major player in Iron Man’s world. Well, we recently got our answer along with this gloriously pulpy cover:

The second series is called International Iron Man by one of my favorite creative teams, Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev. You may remember them from Daredevil, or Spider-Woman, possibly even Moon Knight. Tony Stark will be globe trotting and (hopefully) based on that cover doing his best James Bond impression. My only qualms is that while Maleev is a great artist, his timeliness leaves a whole lot to be desired. Late books is one of the things I dislike most about the medium, so lets hope they can keep it together. In the meantime let’s just take a moment to really soak in that cover of issue #1.

Doctober Spotlight – Doctor Doom

Most would probably say that Doctor Doom is the best villainous doctor in comics. I’d go one step further and say that he’s the best VILLAIN in comics. Sure, you’ve got your Magnetos and your Galactuses… Galacti? But Magneto can’t make up his mind about what side he’s on, plus he’s kind of got a point about humans. And Galactus? That guy’s not even doing anything wrong, he’s a force of nature in a dumb hat.

Zombie Round Up: Thank You

No Thank You would have been a better title for this week’s episode. There has been a stunned silence passing through The Walking Dead community this week, one full of denial and heartbreak. I too have been affected. It leaves me a little at a loss of words on where to start while writing this review. I will warn you of spoilers to follow if you haven’t watched the episode yet, even though social media has likely exposed you to the question we are all wondering: is he alive? Or were my violent sobs mid-episode warranted.

Evil Geek Book Report – Journey To Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Shattered Empire #1-4

Everyone is excited about the new Star Wars movie. Especially after Lucasfilm dropped their full length trailer and for all intents and purposes it looks pretty damn good. While the world patiently waits another 2 months to see the Force Awakens in theaters Marvel smartly published a 4 issue miniseries called Shattered Empire (Journey To Star Wars: The Force Awakens). This was a comic I was hotly anticipating, a chance to prep myself for Episode 7 and bridge the gap between the original trilogy and the new one. Marvel announced that Greg Rucka, one of my favorite writers would be doing the book and this turned into an absolute must buy for me.

 You’d be a fool not to read the following review.

6dbdd-cover

This is the first collection of the (2010) comic book series, American Vampire. I’m not typically a huge vampire fan, (True Blood was good until maybe the third season and was pretty much dog shit after that) but this story interested me because it takes place in a Western setting and features two great writers. This was Stephen King’s first real foray into comics.

Doctober Spotlight – Doctor Destiny

About a year before Doctor Doom showed up in the pages of Fantastic Four, Doctor Destiny first appeared in Justice League of America. The characters are not very similar in terms of their M.O.s or their backstories but their ominous names and general design are reminiscent of one another. The cape and cowl alongside the spooky mask paired with the Doctor lofty D-Word sort of makes me wonder if this wasn’t another aspect of the Fantastic Four that was inspired by a DC comic.
