Wanna know a neat trick to make someone not feel like reading and reviewing a bunch of comics? Send him on vacation with a head cold! That’s me, ladies and gentlemen! Ugh. But I did read some comics and I’m going to review a couple of them, because I’m dedicated!
I read a couple of comics and they were all really good, like the new Batman and Hawkeye. But I think I’m going to give Comic Book of the Week to Iceman again, because it’s a really good comic. He fights the Juggernaut!
Beyond that, the new season of BoJack Horseman started, and that’s largely what I’m doing this weekend!
Comic Reviews: Batman #30, Hawkeye #10 and Iceman #5.
You know what I love to do on vacation? Nothing! Flame Con was a huge success last weekend for Gamer Girl & Vixen, and I had a super fun time in New York City. But now I’m just living out the rest of my vacation in calm and solitude. Gotta love that.
Had some great comics this week, from new Power Rangers to Harley Quinn, and a somewhat disappointing new issue of Chip Zdarsky’s Spider-Man. Not sure what happened there. Comic Book of the Week goes to the new Iceman, which is turning out to be a remarkably well-built comic.
Secret Empire is almost over, thankfully. It’s worn out it’s welcome. Nick Spencer now seems to just be narrating what amounts to just a giant battle of superheroes punching goons. It’ll all be over soon and we can move on with our lives.
Comic Reviews: Batgirl #14, Harley Quinn #26, Iceman #4, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #18 and Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man #3.
Awhile ago, we were teased that Multiple Man would return in the pages of Astonishing X-Men #2. I was foolish enough to get my hopes up. The way Astonishing X-Men was being talked up as a big, important book made me think that anything was possible! Why not bring Multiple Man back from the dead after only a year or so? It would be fun!
But nope, he’s not really back.
Sorry to burst everybody’s bubble, but the Multiple Man that appears at the very beginning of Astonishing X-Men #2 is just an illusion created by the Shadow King after the X-Men travel to the Astral Plane.
He plays the chorus in a stage play about the X-Men that the Shadow King is putting on.
That’s about it.
So he’s not back from the dead. Though Rogue does drop a possible hint that there’s still hope.
I think I’m going to hold on to that hope. Just for a little while.
Not too long after we got our first looks at Domino for the upcoming Deadpool sequel, but here’s actor Josh Brolin as Cable! Quite fancy!
And here he is again!
Looks fine to me! Not sure how Cable is going to fit into the Deadpool movie, but then I suppose people have been wondering that about Cable and Deadpool comics for years! I’m sure they’ll make it pretty awesome.
Want to see something awesome? Then check out the artwork of Unnecessarily X-essive! Artist Scott Modrzynski has apparently spent the past few years drawing every single character and alternate costume that ever appeared in the multi-decade Uncanny X-Men. And I do mean every character. Even background characters.
Here are some of my favorites:
This is a masterpiece of Internet X-Menery. Somebody buy this guy a drink or tell him to start working on the Avengers!
