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!

Marvel VS Capcom 3 Announced!

A few days ago, the newest Marvel vs Capcom game was announced! Finally!

The teaser is here and it is pretty awesome!

It features the Capcom characters, Ryu, Morrigan, and Chris from RE5.
And the Marvel characters Wolverine, Iron Man, and the Hulk.

The gaming news site Kotaku suggests that the characters
“Captain America, Super Skrull, Chun-Li, Deadpool, Felicia, Dante, Frank West, Mephisto, Trish and Doctor Doom…”
may also be playable characters guessing from the silhouettes in promotional art.

Ok, so being all hyped up about this game I go and buy the downloadable version of Marvel vs Capcom 2 on my Playstation 3.

After about 3 minutes I realize that I really suck at MvC2… In fact, I don’t like this game…. at all.
It’s not that the game is any bad, but I just forgot that I really am not good at 2D fighting games…

So I guess I’m not getting this game when it comes out next Spring.

It’s ok thought because I can still wait for Spider-man: Shattered Dimensions to come out in September this year.

Ok then, latr guys.

Go here and here for more info on these Marvel Super Hero-based games.

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?
