Stephen and Matthew sit down to review Marvel’s Young Avengers #13, and one of them has never read the series before… can you guess which one?
History sees the ancient Greek city-state of Sparta as a warrior society that was once the dominant civilization in its era. Comic books and movies have romanticized their heroics in stories such as the 300 Spartans against the vast Persian army. However, these accounts rarely depict the hypocrisies and negative aspects of Spartan society. Kieron Gillen’s Three series attempts to remedy this lack of information. Through the eyes of three Helot slaves on the run in Sparta, Three brings to light the many failings of Spartan life and what led to its downfall.

Marvel had a number of teaser images come out during the Diamond Retailer Lunch yesterday. Right now it’s mostly speculation but more information on each will be coming out over the weekend. For now, take the jump and see what was teased.
One of the titles announced at Marvel’s Cup O’ Joe Panel was Young Avengers: After Party, a two-issue jam comic which will see Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie welcome in a number of other creators for some stories and dancing. For a pic of the covers and names of the creators, take the jump.
Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie bring back the Marvel’s fan-favorite comic series, Young Avengers, after the departure of its original creators. This new series introduces characters like Loki, Miss America, and Marvel Boy, and features old favorites from the original comic, such as Wiccan, Hulkling, and Hawkeye. The old team is still reeling over the death of fellow teammate, Cassie Lang, and some members have a hard time adjusting to a normal life. However, that all changes when Wiccan brings Hulkling’s adoptive mother back from the dead.
