Secret Wars Spin Off Series Mini Reviews

marvel-summer-2015-teasers-summary-featured-2-why-marvel-will-reboot-after-secret-wars-jpeg-180303

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:

The Evil Geeks Top 5 Silver Age Comic Covers

We’ve talked here about our favorite covers on many occasions in the past, but it’s time we showed a little respect to the books that set the stage for the comics on which we were raised and the ones we’ve found in recent years. So buckle up for a bombastic ballyhoo of the best and brightest sequential showcases the swinging sixties saw fit to print. Man, talking like Stan Lee is exhausting. No wonder he’s looked worn out for 50+ years now.

SA - SECRET SIX 1

Secret Six #1 , May 1968, Frank Springer

The cover of this debut issue is remarkable in that it’s also the first page of the actual story. I’ve always been fascinated with that notion, it’s not just some pin-up but in fact your first taste of the action. Sure, Secret Six was never one of DC’s hottest comics (certainly not in the Silver Age), but it’ll always have a place in history because of this cover.

Make Mine Marvelous: New Movie News!!!

Hello Marvel Zombies!

All I gotta say is that in the past week MARVEL HAS BEEN KILLING IT! Seriously, this week has been insane with what the company has in store for us for the next five years… now that’s some serious planning! I’ll always be a DC Fanboy at heart, but man! They’ve got all sorts of awesome in store for us and I can hardly contain my excitement…and it includes Ultron, Black Panther, Stephen Strange, the Infinity War and more, so let’s get started!!!

All the craziness started a week ago when Robert Downey Jr revealed that he was in for another Marvel movie, but rather than another solo Iron Man movie he’s starring in Captain America 3, which has officially been titled Captain America: Civil War! Marvel’s Kevin Feige was quoted saying that the film will have a “global superhuman registration with a specific inciting incident.” It’s too early to say what exactly will happen with this movie, but Civil War was huge for Marvel in the comic world because it brought on the death of Captain America and set the stage for Bucky to take over in the role. Who knows what the MCU has in store, but Chris Evans has signed up for 6 movies and this one will make 5 for him (his cameo in Thor didn’t count,) so who knows! Maybe film will reflect art and Evans’ Cap will die only to be brought back again in a future film?

The Things I Do For Comics – The Mighty Marvel Superheroes’ Cookbook

So often, when I set down to write an installment in this series of articles, I do so without joy. Then again, that’s the very idea of the column; I put my sanity on the line to read the worst of the worst so that you fair readers never have to. I suppose you could say that I’m a hero, sure… but I don’t do it for the glory, I do it because if I don’t no one will. This week, however, I stumbled across a bit of history that was delightfully dreadful, and I want the rest of the world to see it in all of its glory… or at least a few dozen people.
