By this time next week, I will have seen Avengers: Endgame and all will be right in the world. I can’t wait. I’m very excited. Let’s hope I’m not too excited!
Until then, we’ve got to read some fun comics, like Guardians of the Galaxy and the final issue of West Coast Avengers! The War of the Realms also continued this week! But Comic Book of the Week goes to the big, climactic issue of Tony Stark – Iron Man for a solid, enjoyable story.
Meanwhile, my skimming of new Uncanny X-Men issues reaffirms my correct decision to drop them. More characters I like are dead. Though if my brother is reading this, he might be slightly pleased to know that the original Pyro has been stealth returned to the living…though apparently as a one-note bad guy. I’m working on a larger Pyro article, I promise.

What’d’ya’know! It’s a brand new Avengers: Endgame trailer! It’s short, but damn if it isn’t full of fun new footage and details! Fortunately, it still doesn’t really give away anything of the total film. Marketing for Endgame has been phenomenal!
None of the trailers have given away much of the story, and yet all of them have been wonderful teasers for the full movie. It’s been great!
Tickets are also now on sale. I’m going to pick up mine when I go see Shazam! this week. I don’t know about you lot, but I’ve got those fancy, reclining seats at my movie theater. I’m going to have to show up a full hour in advance when Avengers: Endgame arrives in theaters. Not that I mind. I will gladly sit in the theater lobby and play on my phone for an hour if it means I can get the most perfect seat in the theater.
Bring it on!
Welcome to a comic review article where I basically rant ceaselessly about why I don’t particularly care for all of the comics this week. I didn’t plan it that way. It’s just how everything is panning out. Last week was all about comics I loved and adored, this week is apparently all about comics I have major problems with, like Captain Marvel and Naomi.
In better news, I finally got caught back up to Jason Aaron’s Thor in time for War of the Realms. I’m so glad I did, and I’m hugely disappointed in myself for ever stopping. I missed some great comics! Thor #11 wins Comic Book of the Week!
Meanwhile, that Spider-Man: Life Story comic started, but I think I’m going to trade wait for that one. Chip Zdarsky and Mark Bagley are telling the story of Peter Parker through the decades, as if he aged in real time after debuting in the 1960s. It sounds awesome…but it also sounds like a solid collected edition read.

Oh man, were we expecting a new Avengers: Endgame trailer today?! Here it is, out of nowhere, and it gave me chills! This looks great!
We even get a stinger of Captain Marvel at the end. I think that stinger could have been stronger, but I suppose they don’t want to give too much away…especially if they put this new trailer in front of Captain Marvel for its second weekend.
But what a great trailer! Builds the drama, draws on the past movies, really gathers the heroes into something truly great…and none of the story has been given away! The Avengers group up and try to do something to save the world! I hope it’s going to be great!
Also, on a personal note, Ant-Man remains my favorite movie Avenger. And just seeing Scott Lang suited up and walking alongside the full-on Avengers is pretty fun!
We’re only one week from the Captain Marvel movie! Less than a week, actually. How cool is that? The Marvel Movie Season is about to re-begin!
Pretty standard and all around quality-ish pile of comics this week. There’s good comics like Fantastic Four and Captain America, along with sourish comics like Heroes in Crisis. We’re going to say goodbye soon to West Coast Avengers, and I’m finally digging one of Brian Michael Bendis’ Superman comics. In fact, Comic Book of the Week goes to the new Action Comics for a real humdinger of a cliffhanger!
Meanwhile, the one Age of X-Man book I was looking forward to finally came out, X-Tremists. It’s fine. First issue doesn’t do much more than set up the premise, with some solid character banter. But there’s nothing too deep, character-wise, which is a shame. The issue just continues to build on what I consider an already very flimsy frame for Age of X-Man. But Leah Williams is a writer I want to keep my eyes on, so I’m gonna stick with this and hope she pulls out something great by the end.
