I think I’m reading less comics these days. I don’t know if I’ve run out of time or if I keep running out of comics I actually enjoy. I’ve dropped most of the X-Men comics I’ve been reading. I dropped Amazing Spider-Man and didn’t pick up any of the other supplemental Spider-Man comics. I dropped a lot of DC Comics. Am I…am I falling out of love with comics?!
Let’s hope not. I think it’s just the current business practices of the Big Two.
Some solid comics this week, from War of the Realms to Go Go Power Rangers. Comic Book of the Week goes to the new issue of Tom King’s Batman, which I’m finally back to reviewing! I think it’s my favorite Tom King series ever, and he still brings the deep character drama.
Meanwhile, some big cancellation news this week. We’re losing Unstoppable Wasp again, which is a damn shame. Gonna miss that book. And the entire X-Men comics line is being cancelled to make way for Jonathan Hickman’s plans. I’m more excited about that…though now I fully regret buying all of X-Men: Disassembled and anything they’ve done since. Marvel’s X-Men relaunches get shorter and shorter. And now all those character deaths really were meaningless. Unless it was part of Jonathan Hickman’s grand plan that Strong Guy be dead. If so, I feel personally attacked.
Comic Reviews: Batman #71, Giant-Man #1, Go Go Power Rangers #20, Guardians of the Galaxy #5 and The War of the Realms #4.
Ten years have come and gone in the blink of an eye. I can still remember the events surrounding that original Iron Man film in 2008, and my going to see it at the midnight release. I can still remember the popularity of that first trailer, and the Onion article mocking that popularity. Oh how far we’ve come, and how how great the journey has been!
I loved Avengers: Endgame 3000.
Movie Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic
I have a feeling my thoughts on this film might change as time goes on. I viewed Infinity War a bit more harshly last year than I eventually settled on, and I mellowed out more on Black Panther. The same could happen here. But having seen Avengers: Endgame twice in the opening weekend, I’m very pleased with the film and everything it had to offer. It’s not perfect, and I’ve got some nitpicks, but overall it was everything we could have wanted from the Infinity Saga finale.
Join me after the jump for my full review and thoughts on Avengers: Endgame. Be warned that this article contains FULL SPOILERS and assumes you’ve seen the movie.
Here it is, folks! The first trailer for Avengers 4, now titled Avengers: Endgame! It’s here, it’s great, and you should watch it immediately!
Loved this trailer! Loved the darkness, loved the hopelessness, love the emotion, and I super loved the Scott Lang stinger at the end! He’s my favorite character in the MCU, and Paul Rudd arriving in the darkest hour to charm his way into saving the day is exactly what I want from Avengers: Endgame!
Predictably, I expected the various YouTube parody videos to make their rounds today celebrating Ant-Man and the Wasp. I have been partially correct so far, at lest.
Enjoy the Honest Trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp!
Love me some Honest Trailers!
If and when the How It Should Have Ended video drops today, I’ll add that to this post!
Ant-Man and the Wasp comes out on DVD today, for people who still use DVDs. I’ll probably Red Box it this weekend, for people who still use Red Box. This being the case, there’s bound to be a bunch of funny Ant-Man and the Wasp internet stuff I can share today.
Let’s start with this big video of all the bonus features, deleted scenes and bloopers.
Yeah, fun stuff! It’s a good movie and I look forward to watching it again, and seeing Ant-Man and the Wasp show up in Avengers 4.
