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:

international-iron-man-59bde

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.

All New, All Different Marvel Mini Reviews (Part 1)

Marvel-Comics-Reboot-2

Marvel is still in the midst of the massive company wide crossover Secret Wars. Numerous delays have pushed the ending from October 7th until December along with adding an issue (or more accurately splitting a larger issue into two). Because of this, the new relaunch of Marvel titles with the line wide branding of All New, All Different Marvel has started rolling out prior to the conclusion of the event they spawned out of. Story wise, they were smart enough to position all the new books as happening 8 months after the conclusion of Secret Wars. This allows for new readers to jump on without much of a problem and the season veterans to know there is still some mystery left to figure out how the characters got there. It’s interesting marketing, but delays in this medium drive me crazy and with such a coordinated event it becomes a clusterfuck. Secret Wars spin off series that were launched during the early days of the main title now have significant delays because of not being able to reveal things in their series until they happen in the main event book. I’m not sure how issue #5 of Where Monsters Dwell (the seemingly most tangentially connected spin off book) is relevant to say issue #7 of Secret Wars but I know I’ve had to wait a few months to find out.

All that aside, the first wave of Marvel’s All New, All Different initiative has started to be released and I’m going to take a look at a few those new series. I’m only reviewing the titles I have an interest in so keep in mind you won’t be seeing everything.

Pulp Corner: Silver Screen Heroes

The Pulp Corner returns! I apologize for its (and my) absence but I recently bought a house and it turns out stripping the walls of the Evil Lair isn’t as simple as one may think. Anyway, the Silver Screen Heroes art series has been making the rounds lately and it’s one that immediately caught my eye. Artist Joe Phillips has taken blockbuster comic book movies as well as imagined ones and reenvisioned them as period films of yesteryear. He also designed retro styled movie posters and cast them with the era appropriate actors. It’s a lot of things I love all wrapped into one package.
