This Week in Comics 10/20/10 – Batman/Superman #77

Batman/Superman #77

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.

Happy Free Comic Book Day!

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,
Latr!

This Week in Comics 4/28/10 – Iron Man and X-Force

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!

X-Force #26


COVER BY: Adi Granov

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!

Latr!

Iron Man 2 Trailer 2

Man-o-man I am so excited about the new Iron Man movie, and this trailer can’t get me any more pumped!

Iron Man 2 comes out on May 7!

Casting-wise, I’m only concerned about Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow. I mean not that I have anything against her, to me she’s still fit as hell. And she looks great as Black Widow, but I’ve seen her other movies and saw what roles worked and didn’t seem to work for her and I just don’t know if this will. Of course we don’t even know if she’ll have an accent or not! I guess time will tell.

What do you think?
