Marvel Sneak Peek – Franklin Richards Edition

I like the Franklin Richards series produced by Marvel and written by Marc Sumerak and Chris Eliopoulos, with art by Eeliopoulos. It reminds me a lot of Clavin and Hobbes, if Calvin were a super son of a genius, and if Hobbes were a robot. Lots of fun in this latestest edition, and Major Spoilers has a sneak peek just for you.

New Avengers #27

Or – “Superstar Is Such A Subjective Term…” This issue marks two separate benchmarks in the history of the New Avengers. We finally get to see the first glimpses of the post-Civil War lineup (and it’s certainly interesting), and we see the debut of Leinil Yu as penciller. Marvel Comics, Wizard, and six guys who read Wolverine have informed me how wonderful his art is, and I’m looking forward to finally seeing what the wunderkind has to offer. Bear in mind, however, that Wizard has also tried to sell me on the work of Rob Liefeld, Bart Sears, Steve Platt,…

Ghost Rider on Fire at the Box Office

Sony and Marvel hit another one out of the ballpark this past weekend as Ghost Rider revved his way to the top of the box office charts raking in $44.5 million over the three day weekend. According to Variety, this is the biggest opening of the year so far. I haven’t seen the film yet (was too busy with other shtuff over the weekend), but plan to see it before it shows up on cable. via Variety (link)

Heroes For Hire #6

Or – “You Don’t Know What You’ve Got, Blah Blah Blah…” The Heroes for Hire have, so far, been very much on a rocket bus, with the first couple of issues racing through a Civil War tie-in (with Misty and Colleen taking a stand against Iron Man, and NOT getting beaten within an inch of their lives in the middle of a street, proving that if you want to get anything past Tony Stark, it’s best to have mammaries), then a second arc of high speed mayhem featuring Ricadonna, several supervillains who should be dead (a recurring them for this…

Ultimate Civil War: Spider-Ham (Featuring Wolverham)

Or – “Dying Is Easy, Comedy Is Hard… And They’ve Tried One Already.” Okay, that’s probably not fair. After all, comedy is difficult, and many writers who have a good grasp of dialogue, story, and character can’t be funny. Heck, even the writers who are PROVEN funny (guys like Dan Slott, Kurt Busiek, even Joss Whedon) aren’t 100% universally hilarious. They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but the often-imitated, never-duplicated concept known as “The Funny” is trapped somewhere between the lens and the retina of the beholder, forever entombed in eye goop. Why do you…

X-Factor #15

Or – “Jamie Madrox, Agent of S.H.E.E.S.H.” Everybody knows what it’s like to be indecisive, unable to make a decision. I’ve spent the entire year 2007 barely capable of deciding fries vs. onion rings, one of the unpleasant side effects of the year from Aitch Ee Double Hockey Sticks. Imagine how much worse it would be if I could actually separate portions of my personality and let them fight it out among themselves… You really have to feel bad for James Madrox. Not only do his moods get the best of him, sometimes they go walkabout and dig holes that…

Marvel Comics Sneak Peek of the Week – Punisher Edition

Sneak Peeks are great in that they give you a preview of the goodness coming down the pike. This week Marvel sends us a five page preview of Punisher: War Journal #5 that is all about that balance between normals and superhumans. In this case it is Bushwacker v. a lone beat cop. Even without the word balloons, you can tell the cop has wet himself.

Thunderbolts #110

Or – “Is It Still A Revamp When There’s Nothing Of The Old Concept Left?” The year was 1997… It was cold in Hays, Kansas, I remember that much. Granted, it’s pretty much always cold in Hays, but nevertheless. My friend Bruce had picked up an issue of The Hulk that featured strange new heroes, led by a star-spangled goof in a pointy mask, and I immediately found them intriguing. With The Avengers, The Fantastic Four, Iron Man and The Hulk trapped in a parallel universe (a strange and bizarre place where someone foolishly thought that Rob Liefeld could draw…

Marvel Spider-Man Question

The comic publishers are really jumping on the cryptic image promotion to get us all worked up on their next big project. This one is Spider-Man themed, asking the question, “What would you do…with one more day?”  Is someone going to die?  We know Mary Jane or Aunt May are in the gunsite of someone (Kingpin perhaps?). We’ll have to wait until later this year when the J Michael Stracynci and Joe Quesada story drops that promises to change Spider-Man’s life forever. via Marvel (link)

Marvel Comics for May 2007

Marvel Comics came a knocking and dropped off its solicitation information and cover images for titles shipping in May 2007. Fall-out from Civil War continues in several titles and one shots, plus the Marvel Zombies are back in Black Panther #28. Dang, those zombies never die. And why should they? Marvel Zombies has become a huge money maker for the company. Take the jump for the complete list, and click on the thumbnails for the big cover images.

Civil War: The Return

Or – “What The Heck Do I Call A Dead Character NOW?” There’s an inherent pitfall to the way I do my reviews. My rules are simple: I pick some titles to go over, stick ’em in a pile by my comfy chair, and review them, in roughly chronological order. Scan the good bits, babble incoherently, then enjoy a Milk-Bone in a commie-free world. But when a book comes out that has spoilery material, it quickly becomes a topic of discussion, and makes me feel like I’m behind the curve when I get ’round to it. Case in point? Civil…
