This THORsday we’re exploring the mess in Extraordinary X-Men Vol. 1: X-Haven [The Book Depository]. In the world, there are the X-men, the Inhumans, and humans. And all of them are scared and fighting against the X-men. A mist is either killing them or sterilizing them. The future looks grim, and so, Storm has no choice. The X-men are at war for survival.
But to be successful Storm and the others have to recruit some X-men again. That includes Jean (who comes from the past), and a surprise, Wolverine (who comes from the future). But things aren’t that easy.
This week we have hot releases of new comics to add to your comic book pull list. Some have known faces, like Darth Vader, but there are also pleasant surprises. I’ll start with Amazing Age. This is a mini-series of five issues. Three teens spend their days creating comic books, and then their dreams come true: their stories come to life! Now the issue is if they’ll survive in a world plenty of Superheroes and Super-villains.
This week we’re reading Spider-Verse: Warzones! [The Book Depository] I have to admit that it’s a little bit weird: you have lots of Spiders, and it’s quite messy. But, it’s also fun. We are in an alternate universe where Spider-Man, Spider-Gwen, Venom and other Spiders end up. Their memories are confusing. How can Spider-Gwen be in a place where she has died? And, how can there be a Spider-Ham that loves eating pork?
If your mind is exploding, Gwen’s doing that too. She is suspicious of her new Spider-friends, but all are nice so far. However, the villains seem to be a pain.
We’re back with some comic books this week yet again! This time I want to talk about madness: Bitch Planet and Gwenpool. But before I go there, I’d like to start talking about Wonder Woman. The movie is here! Although I have to wait until tomorrow to enjoy it, I decided to start reading her comics.
So, this week’s central star is Wonder Woman. You can fetch Wonder Woman Rebirth (Annual 1) in your comic book store. Here you have short stories about our favorite Amazon. After this, let’s all have a beer and head to the cinema!
Today is Star Wars 40th Anniversary! One day like this, just forty years ago, Star Wars made it to the big screen. Today is also the Geek Pride Day. So, today is perfect! And it’s also comics THORsday! So, we’re going to celebrate everything with Skywalker Strikes“>Skywalker Strikes [The Book Depository]. If you love Star Wars, you’ll probably enjoy reading further adventures in the comics. Plus, you get to enjoy your favorite heroes even more.
In Skywalker Strikes we are in a period where the rebellion is hopeful. The evil Galactic Empire’s greatest weapon, the Death Star, has been destroyed by Luke. With the Imperial Forces in disarray, the Rebels look to press their advantage by unleashing a daring offensive throughout the far reaches of space, hoping to defeat the Empire once and for all and at last restore freedom to the galaxy.
The new comic books this week come with some nostalgia. Do you know Battle Angel Alita? When I was a teen, I was hooked with this manga. The cyber-doctor Daisuke Ido finds a strange cyborg head in a damp. It belongs to a woman who has lost all her memories. He re-assembles her and names her Alita. She has a super powerful body: the Berserker. Afte a while, something happens: she can do amazing martial arts! Although she cannot remember anything, she decides to become a vigilante. She lives in a lawless place, so she’ll avenge the weak. But, she has a little bit of an identity crisis: is she still human? Does her new job make her humanity go away? How much cyborg is she?
This is a classic. However, I don’t recommend it for the very young. The manga’s pages are plenty of violence. The story is compelling, and Alita is as deadly as adorable.
It’s THORsday again! This means that we’re going to read comics! This week we’re going to explore all about Spider-Man: Miles Morales. He happens to have extra powers compared with Spidey. He has a problem: he doesn’t know how to balance his Superhero life with his normal life. Fortunately, his best friend and his dad are there to help. But, things look pretty grim at the moment.
For starters, he has a fan online: a young YouTuber. She has captured a video from a battle. Miles got his mask broken, and she could see that he’s brown. She instantly became a fan. Also because of representation grounds. However, Miles isn’t that happy about it.
This week we have some cool comic books that we can pick again. This week things get hot again since there are some interesting titles. And again, I’m left with a tough decision: do I start right away with the issues? Or do I wait for the trade?
While I meditate on the topic, I’ll start this week’s possible pic list with Luke Cage. Marvel’s Netflix series was fantastic. So, I do hope that the comic reflects that too. Cage is on a revenge spree. Cage goes to the funeral of Doctor Noah Burstein, the one who made of him an unbreakable Superhero. However, he soon discovers mysterious billionaires, gangs, and a woman with a huge secret.
Because things look pretty grim, Cage starts looking for answers. Maybe there’s far more to Doctor Noah Burstein’s death that meets the eye.
This week we’re going to explore a sweet comic by Ru Xu called NewsPrints. I found it diving into the shelves of the local comic book store. It tells the story of Blue. She’s an orphan who works as a newsboy. To do that she has to disguise herself as a guy. Since the comic book happens during the war time, it’s not surprising to see men and women doing different roles. Blue is a girl, so she should be selling cookies. However, she loves living and working at the Bugle, the only newspaper that does deliver the truth in town.
So, Blue’s job is crucial: she delivers a right paper that explains the truth to their readers. But, everything seems fine as long as she is a boy. But, what would happen if she were to tell the others that she’s a girl?
Wednesday is the day when you can find new cool comics in the comic book store. Yes, it’s the comic book day of the week, and it certainly comes with hot titles. I’ve decided to share with you some of the titles I’d love to follow. There are too many possibilities out there, and yet, you have to choose from them.
I’m going to start with Misfit City by Boom Box. Wilder lives in what seems to be a very boring place. The biggest thing that ever happened was the filming of a cult kid’s movie back in the 80s. But now, this sounds like ancient history. However, something happens (if not, we wouldn’t have a story). She and her friend find a centuries-old pirate map drawn by someone called Black Mary. Maybe there’s a treasure in that boring town!
