With Marvel’s Secret Wars event wrapping up soon (hopefully), I thought I’d take some time to look at some of the spin off miniseries published during it. Secret Wars allowed for their stable of writers to really let loose and get to write some fun and interesting parallel universe stories revisiting fan favorite storylines while giving the readers a possible taste of things to come. With the majority of the regular monthly series on hold there was an insane amount of books that came out in the interim to replace them. I’m only going to focus on the four miniseries that I read in completion. For better or for worse here they are:
Greetings Evil Geekites, it’s been far too long since we’ve chatted about funny books, so I’m back today to right that terrible, terrible wrong. You may be familiar with some of my past writings on Deadpool, so you know I’m certainly a fan of the character. When used properly, I think he’s one of the most entertaining sights to see in the Marvel U and this latest story arc in the incredible run that Duggan and Posehn have scripted thus far is a perfect example of Wade being used exactly as he should be. He’s not just an unending stream of jokes; he’s a man dammit… who just so happens to have an unending stream of jokes coming out of his mouth. Let’s dig a little deeper into the incredibly screwed up mind of Wade Wilson and discuss The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly by Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn, featuring art by Declan Shalvey.
What’s going on Evil Geeks!?!? Welcome back to an all-new Evil Geek Book Report! You may have surmised from my constant reviewing of and praise for Deadpool, that I might just be a little bit of a Deadpool fan. Guilty as charged! Issue #8 of the new ongoing series kicks off a brand new story arc from the writing team of Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan, with art by Tony Moore. The first story arc featuring zombie ex-Presidents was one of the best things I’ve read in a while, so this arc’s got some big shoes to fill. How does it hold up? Read on and find out!
Good day Evil Geeks, it’s time to talk COMICS!!! It’s been a while since I’ve book reported for your pleasure, but C-Mart is back today to talk funny books and refer to himself in the 3rd person! I’ve recently caught up on my backlog of new books and as usual I’m impressed with the two newest issues of Deadpool and the writing duo of Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan. In fact, I’m so impressed, that I’m lumping the reviews for both books together, because quite frankly I’m lazy like that sometimes and cutting corners is the only way to catch up. Issue #6 wraps up the book’s first story arc and Issue #7 brings us a hilarious “lost issue” of Deadpool from the 70’s. Without further ado, let’s get to the reviewing!
