AvsX – Just went Highlander on us!

Marvel Comics Monday afternoon released a teaser image for Act 3 of the Avengers vs. X-Men mega event. The image has the tag-line of “There can be only one!” The major problem with this is it is a complete rip-off from the “Highlander” franchise but maybe Disney bought that too! Well, we look forward to more original ideas coming from Marvel in the coming weeks.

Avengers Vs. X-Men – Act 3 Begins: THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE!

This August, the comic book event of the year – Avengers VS. X-Men – reaches critical mass as Earth’s Mightiest make their last stand against the Phoenix Force. But when the Phoenix Force yearns for a single host, who will it choose? There can only be one! Act Three kicks off in Avengers Vs. X-Men #9, hitting comic shops, the Marvel Comics app, and Marvel Digital Comic Shop this August.

Which team will reign supreme? Join the conversation on Twitter with #AvX!

“A Comic Show” – 4.25.2012 A vs X vs Chew!

It’s another great week of comics! We’re all gearing up for Northstar’s Big Gay Wedding (don’t know why David Gabriel is keeping it in the closet). A vs X is still the awesome frosted side of the mini-wheats with Jason Aaron’s VS #1: Magneto vs Iron Man! Aquaman #8 continues Geoff Johns’ sea change for Arthur, and CHEW is the book for A v X and New 52 haters to support. It’s a crazy concept about a detective who can see the history of anything he eats, not a rehash, not a re-imagined story! Experience Creativity!
Bleeding Cool’s own Rich Johnson has two more controversial Avengers parodies out, and in honor of politics making strange bedfellows, any one who preorders all the Before Watchmen issue #1’s from us gets Bleeding Cool Magazine #0 FREE! Who buys Before Watchmen? Probably the same blokes who fancy Bleeding Cool! -acomicshoptv

“A Comic Show” 4.18.2012 NIGHT OWLS!

This week is Super Hero frosted mini-wheats homoerotic funtime! A v X #2 by JASON AARON racks up the injuries and hints to the witch being behind Phoenix’s coming. Uncanny X-Force is a one and you’re done return to form! This is what every X-Force issue should be, how every issue should end: SEX and VIOLENCE!

DC has the NIGHT of the OWLS fly out the gate with two insane first parts. Snyder’s Batman shows Alfred is all the oracle we need, and if you weren’t going to get Nightwing #8, think again! This book was not only super relevant to OWLS, but a must read for any fan of Dick! JUSTICE LEAGUE #8 is still Geoff Johns, and the SHAZAM back up rocks.

What can I say, it’s a great week for mainstream comics! -acomicshoptv

“A COMIC SHOW” – 2.8.2012 (Tribute to TriForce Mike)

This week Aaron does the video solo in Triforce Mike’s memory. Aw hell, I’m gonna drop the third person. I miss this guy so much and really had to psyche myself up to do this. I haven’t read a comic since Mike got hit by a car and died last Monday. I realized today I’ve been paralyzed in that even though I was putting on a strong show because that’s what we had. We’ve been reading comics and talking about them every week for 8 years. I’m talking the ones we love and hate! I rarely ever talk about the books I dislike with customers because I don’t wanna poop on what they may like. When a book was really on fire like Animal Man Mike and I would get so pumped speculating where it was going. ..But again, I’m also realizing that “friendship is magic”, and there’s plenty of other people in my life that love me and would love to talk comics more often. So, I’m gonna start a new comic discussion club here, that will kinda be my support group for missing Mike. I’m gonna go home tonight a read a ton of comics! It’s what Mike would have wanted. – acomicshoptv

Tri-force Mike is there, but he really doesn’t do much. Is that part of his charm? We both suggest you try Remender’s first Secret Avengers issue and Jeff Lemire of Animal Man fame’s Sweet Tooth. Also comic’s #1 book came out, JUSTICE LEAGUE! – acomicshoptv
