The most notable comic that came out this week, in my opinion, has to be Batman/Superman #77. This month’s issue focus’s on a short team up between the new Robin, Damian Wayne, and Supergirl.
Damian is such an asshole but I don’t know why he’s so much likable than the other rude Robin, Jason Todd. I think Damian’s immaturity and arrogance works really well when he has to interact with other heroes like Dick Grayson and Supergirl. He’s also a bad-ass remember?:
Anyways, this issue is just a quick fun ride if you’re a fan of Damian. Sure, Supergirl is the costar, but Robin is the real treat in this story.
Ok I got a new laptop so I can start blogging again! I still haven’t set up photoshop but I can finally continue to shoot develop and scan film again!
Oh and what a perfect day to start blogging again because this week has been horrible. Between a hell at school and a bad ATM problem, a problem that has left me short on money for the next 5 to 10 days, I just cannot find another reasonable way to vent and relax than spending my time shooting photos again.
Oh, on the bright side of this crappy week, look at what I found in the mail today.
I sent a photo submission to Jonessoda.com to see what would happen last July and I guess I got picked.
Yeah, I know it’s not a big deal. I mean I think they choose about fifty submissions a month or something right? But my luck in photo hasn’t been so awesome recently, so it was nice to have a win for once. Even a small one like this.
On the comics side I started reading current Ultimate Spider-man (#1-14 after Ultimatum) now that I’ve finally caught up with all the trades (11 hardcovers, it was a lot). And. It. Is. Good. Oh so good. It’s a nice happy colorful adventure of spider-man on one side, and the tragic stories of horror and teen angst that was so great in the original Ult. Spider-man series on the other side. The way that Bendis just constantly beats down on a poor teen Peter Parker makes you really sympathize with him and cheer him on when the fun and happy parts of the book occur. This balance between Peter’s fun and light stories with the Human Torch, Iceman, MJ, and Gwen and Spider-man’s life of just crappy and worst things happening to him is perfect. And the bright, colorful art by Lafuente is jut amazing also. An improvement in my opinion over the last two.
This is a great extended trailer released by Capcom… I’m guessing during e3 or before.
Anyways, it looks great!
Also new e3 trailer of Spider-man Shattered Dimensions reveals the 3rd Spider-man and dimension. Also… Loooks AMAZING.
The last Spider-man will be revealed during the San Diego Comicon, but judging from the small teaser at the end of this video we can pretty much guess who it is.
Ok thats all I’ve got, going to go scan some film.
Happy Fathers day Everyone!
Which was yesterday!
Free comic book day was pretty cool, it was nice to see so many adults and kids at my local comic book store. I went with my little brothers and my younger cousin. They all love comic book characters and super heroes and all that but they don’t actually read them… They just flip though my issues and look at the pictures -_- . So I thought this would be a good opportunity to get them into the hobby.
That’s not me btw thats my alliterate cousin, Johnny
Aside from some cool comics I also got a sweet Iron Man 2 poster with the suit case armor.
If you missed FC, there’s always next year. Free Comic Book Day is the first Saturday of May and you can find more info about it at freecomicbookday.com.
They even have a little video by Heroes actor Milo Ventimiglia promoting FCBD.
That’s all I gots to say, gotta go back to readin my comics,
Invincible Iron Man #25
WRITER: Matt Fraction
PENCILS/COVER: Salvador Larroca
Issue #25 comes out this week and with the new issue and story arc, a new armor for Iron Man! This issue was pretty heavy with info and exposition but Matt Fraction keeps it interesting even without much action in the book. The sci-fi fans of Iron Man will be happy because this issue introduces a lot of big concepts to the science of Iron Man, mirroring Warren Ellis’ Extremis story. Usually Larrocadoes a good job drawing Iron Man and is foes in armor, but I really had to get use to how he drew faces and people. They just looked kind of chubby and deformed at times. In this issue it seems like he’s upped his style, since his faces don’t bother me as much.
The new armor is sweet, and Fraction actually gives readers a good reason and story behind the need of it. And man-o-man the marketing and timing of this release cannot be perfect for the Iron Man 2 movie because I AM SO STOKED about watching it in theaters next week!
-Cover of the Week-
I haven’t read it but I love almost anything Adi Granov does. Especially his Iron Man work.
Ok I guess that’s it guys, there wasn’t many exceptional picks this week for me but I’ll be back on Saturday to talk about FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!
Dark Wolverine #85
If you love Daken as much as I do, check this out. This is the beginning of a crossover with Wolverine: Origins and it starts off awesome! I don’t know much about the character Romulus besides that he’s some kind of Super Claw Guy hiding in the shadows and fucking with Wolverine and Daken. But it seems like they are finally gonna take him down!
Also I’ve heard that Daken is finally getting his own series simply called “Dark Wolverine”. I guess he’s keeping the name even after Seige?
Batman: Streets of Gotham #11
There’s only one thing that makes this issue so great, Damian Wayne. One of the reason’s he’s my favorite Robin after Dick Grayson is that he’s a capable hero. He could actually hold his own and actually qualifies as a teen (child?) super hero, unlike two other Bat-teens. I mean I love Tim Drake but is he a super acrobat or a trained assassin? And don’t get me started on the new Batgirl…
Damian is hard core. Don’t believe me? Check this panel from this issue:
-Great New Series-
Electric Ant #1
I know this issue came out a few weeks ago, but I just gotta mentions it. I love future stories with great sci-fi themes, and this is a great addition… so far. Electric Ant is about a man named Garson Pool, a successful manufacturer owner. One day he gets into a car accident and loses his hand. No prob, because in the future replacing a limb is easy peasy. One problem, his doctor says he can’t help him because he only helps HUMANS! Turns out Pool is actually an “electric ant”, a type of robot. This turns his world upside down and he wonders what else in his life has been a lie.
I don’t really like the art, just the way he draws faces, but the story relly has me hook so far.
Check it out if you can.
