Legendary artist Jim Steranko did 3 issues of Captain America in 1969 directly coming off his groundbreaking run on Nick Fury. I’ve been waiting a long time to read this, it may only be 3 issues but there’s criminally little comic book output from Steranko and it’s worth pouring over. Stan Lee is on scripts here and the storylines are in step with his silver age zaniness but when the art is this good it doesn’t matter.
So what was I in for?
There are undoubtedly spoilers to be found within these writeups, but the same spoilers will be readily available to anyone with access to a comic store and $0 on this coming Saturday, Free Comic Book Day (!) .
But if you’re unsure what book should be top priority, which ones are safe for kids, or what you’d be getting yourself into, take a look at the following reviews. Free Comic Book Day can get a bit intense at the right store, and to be forewarned is to be forearmed.
After falling in love with Jim Steranko’s art work from afar I decided it was about time I check out his (criminally small) comics output on Marvel’s Nick Fury: Agent Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and later the first ever Nick Fury solo series. These have been packaged together many times, but might I recommend the trade paperback for S.H.I.E.L.D. by Jim Steranko: The Complete Collection which basically has ever scrap he’s ever touch on the subject bundled together but more importantly the art is restored to the proper coloring it was when it was originally published.
It’s finale time, Evil Geeks! After a season that some said started off painfully slow and a roller-coaster of a back-end of the season, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD finally wrapped up its first season this week in typical Marvel Cinematic U fashion; with action, intrigue, plot twists, and a guest cameo. With SHIELD on the ropes and Hydra on the upswing, will Coulson and his chosen team be able to overcome the nefarious powerhouse trio of Garrett, Ward, and of course the cybernetic hench droid, Deathlok? Let’s get to the reviewing!
Excelsior True Believers!
OK, so we’re almost to the end of the season for S.H.I.E.L.D. and I’ve got a two-part review here for you and all I can say is dammmmnnnn…. it’s really been a wild ride and has really opened up the Marvel Cinematic U in my opinion. The last place that C-Mart left us off is that May is gone, Scarface Ward is back and he’s super creepy and has killed Agent Koenig and has basically kidnapped Skye (although she was kinda playing him) and the team no longer has The Bus. Given the fact that we’re only a couple days from the end of the first season these episodes have kinda pulled out all the stops, so c’mon, keep on reading!
