This is one of those weeks where nothing I read comes out. Sometimes there are weeks where nearly a dozen of my favorite comics come out. And then there are weeks like this one, where barely a handful come out. It’s weird. But hey, less work and expense for me.
I picked up the new issue of Aquaman, which may be my last. And I picked up the first issue of Donny Cates’ new Guardians of the Galaxy out of pure Beta Ray Bill curiosity. I also went back and reviewed Champions #1, as requested. Comic Book of the Week goes to Guardians of the Galaxy #1! Good for it.
Meanwhile, Marvel resurrected Cyclops for real in an annual issue this week. Considering I was a pretty big proponent of my own Cyclops-related conspiracy theory, I might consider doing another rant about how they’ve neutered poor Cyclops again. I’ll think about it.
Quick note: I forgot to attach the cover images to my reviews, and now I’m at work so I can’t. I’ll fix that later.
Comic Reviews: Aquaman #44, Champions #1, Guardians of the Galaxy #1.
The new Avengers: Infinity War trailer is here and it’s pretty awesome!
Honestly, I’m starting to feel like this Thanos threat is going to be a pretty daunting challenge for the filmmakers. How do they turn something so nebulous and vast as Thanos and intergalactic armies of faceless aliens into an adversary that doesn’t just feel like a big, CGI mess? Granted, I have 110% faith in Marvel Studios and the Russo brothers to pull this off with aplomb, but I am having some slight fears.
On the other hand, the witty banter in this trailer is on freakin’ point! Tony and Star-Lord is great! Peter and Dr. Strange at the end is great! If nothing else, this movie is going to give us some fun new banter partners!
Movie comes out on April 27. The wait hopefully won’t be too terrible.
The How It Should Have Ended peeps are back with another solid outing. As of right now, late-August, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 remains my Movie of the Year. We’ll see if anything can knock it off that lofty perch.
Also, I totally need to go rent it so I can watch it again, at last!
Quite funny! Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 remains my favorite movie of the year so far, and the How It Should Have Ended folk have finally produced their cartoon! And it’s quite good!
I like when these peeps focus more on the humor and not their Batman/Superman cafe scenes. Fortunately, this one has both, so everybody will be pleased!
We’re living in a post-Kong: Skull Island trailer world. Earlier this week, they ran one of the coolest, most artsy and catchy movie trailers I’ve ever seen. And watching the new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer this morning, I couldn’t help but feel…let down.
I mean, it’s a fine trailer. It’s funny and has some solid one-liners. It’s probably not the strongest Guardians 2 trailer they’ve put out. But man, that Skull Island trailer was something else, right? I’m gonna go watch that one again.
