Cover Of The Day 2/24/15

Our cover of the day is an excellent variant for All New X-Men #36 by the artist Jock. It’s a slam dunk for me using two of my (and everyone else’s) favorites Rocket Raccoon and Groot and paying homage to the classic 1983 Paul Smith Uncanny X-Men #173 cover.

Evil Geek Book Report – Rocket Raccoon & Groot Steal The Galaxy!

Riding the high of the Guardians Of The Galaxy movie, I wanted more. While waiting 2 months for Amazon to fulfill their backorders of the Abnett & Lanning Complete Collection of Guardians, I turned my attention to a novel.

Dan Abnett wrote, “Rocket Raccoon & Groot Steal The Galaxy!” Marvel’s first original prose novel which was released a few weeks ahead of the movie. At the time when I bought it, I couldn’t find too many reviews on it, so I figured what did I have to lose?

Summer Trade Paperback Recommendations

Summer always seems to be a hot bed for the comics industry releasing trade paperbacks and this year is certainly no exception. I did my best to compile a list to the ones I feel are worth noting. Please realize though that all issue content and artwork are subject to change and shouldn’t be deemed as official. The dates also reflect online retailer likes Amazon (brick and mortar comic shops tend to get their hands on these a few weeks ahead of time). So think of this as more of a guideline.

Sledgehammer 44 Vol. 1 

Release Date: June 10

Collects Sledgehammer 44 #1-2 and Lightning War #1-3

I’m not as well versed in the Mignolaverse as I’d like to be, but I try not to miss anything that takes place further back in its history. Mainly Lobster Johnson and any of the B.P.R.D. secret origin stories that occur in the 1940’s. This trade collects two miniseries, Sledgehammer 44 by Mike Mignola and John Arcudi and art by Jason Latour and Lightning War by the same writing team with Laurence Campbell art.

What about the story you say? I don’t know the finer details but I can tell you it involves a man in iron suit dropped into the front lines of WWII to decimate Nazis. Do you really need to know anymore? It seems like Mignola’s twist on Iron Man and I’m more than ok with that.

Watch the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer NOW!!!

Mornin’ Evil Geeks!

gotg logo
Last night Jimmy Kimmel gave fanboys around the world a treat with the first full-length trailer for Marvel’s newest sci-fi cosmic flick “Guardians of the Galaxy!” There’s been tons of speculation around not only the Evil Lair, but the entire internet about this movie and many people think that Marvel is really betting on a longshot with this one here, but I gotta say after seeing the trailer I’m definitely excited!!! Check it out here…

So, I totally buy Chris Pratt as Starlord and from what you see the comedy doesn’t seem forced. Although I thought that Batista from WWE would suck, he looks like a good Drax at least and I’ve always thought that Zoe Saldana could work as Gamora. Groot seems like Groot and Vin Diesel can’t really screw up the lines since all he says is “I am GROOT.” Add to that the simple fact that Rocket Raccoon is the man, er uh, mammal (played by Bradley Cooper) and you’ve got a decent team of slackers who just might get the job done!!! Also, Karen Gillan (of Amy Pond fame) looks badass as Nebula too. The only thing that I wish is that we got a better look at Ronan the Accuser who will be played by Lee Pace, but the Nova Corps made up for it. (Calling in the last scene that Nova makes his debut btw!)

They Bad... You know it!

We Bad… You know it!

All in all, it looks fun and action packed which works for me, so kudos to Marvel for taking a gamble in this franchise, which looks to me will set up their cosmic side of the house and eventually get us to the Infinity Gems. (But in case this sucks, they’ll be raking in the dough from Cap 2, Spidey 2, and X-Men I forget what number their on, so don’t feel too bad for them…just kidding, this’ll be good!) After you check out the trailer make sure to sound off in the comments to let us know what you think. Guardians of the Galaxy opens worldwide on August 1st, 2014.

See ya at the Movies!
