Action Comics #18 Review

AC 18Before I get into the review of Action Comics #18 let me say that DC Comics would never let any other writer besides Grant Morrison do the things that he has done in a Superman book, let alone a New 52 book.  Morrison’s Action Comics doesn’t really gel with the business model of The New 52, with its reliance on knowledge of many past continuity concepts such as The Legion of Superheroes, wacky frenemy Mr. Mxyzptlk and the silly aspects of Silver Age Superman comic books.

The oversized Action Comics #18 begins with a quick resolution of last month’s Lex Luthor deus ex machina before Morrison flings us headlong into his world of weird.  5th Dimension villain Vyndktvx uses his immense powers to transform the Man of Steel into a Lion Superman, Ant Superman and Baby Superman, Morrison’s nod to the odd adventures of Superman in the 50s and 60s.  On top of this Superman must battle the Doomsday version of himself as well as the Anti-Superman Squad.  Meanwhile Jimmy, Lois and the Legion of Superheroes wake up Mxyzptlk from his coma in attempt to help Superman shut down Vyndktvx.  Captain Comet returns with some of his neo sapiens to join in the fight as well.  The resolution has Superman do what he always does: overcome the odds and accomplish the impossible.

Grant Morrison is a man of vision and when he truly commits to a particular vision, amazingly beautiful comics are made.  With Action Comics however, I don’t think Morrison was working at 100%.  Like many of the issues preceding it, Action Comics #18 is rushed in places, and even with the extra pages it feels like we hit the ending far too soon.  The issue reads better a second time around, but it doesn’t detract from a resolution that seems way too easy.  A plus side of this Action Comics run has been seeing artists Rags Morales and Brad Walker collaborate.  Initially their styles were drastically different; their final issue together is a great example of an artistic partnership.  By the looks of it Morales handled most of the scenes with Superman himself while Walker picked up the ones with his supporting cast.  Credit should also be given to Brad Anderson, whose consistent color work provides smooth transitions between Morales and Walker.  The final page of the main story drawn by Morales is great and definitely frame-worthy.  Grant Morrison set out to make a “psychedelic Superman” who conquers the impossible.  With those parameters in mind I think that he succeeded, but you leave this Action Comics run wanting more: more explanation, more character development and more idea exploration.  Morrison has peppered so many interesting concepts in his run but left little space to give them more depth.  I would have preferred it if the backup story had been left out to give the main tale more elbow room but oh well.  Sholly Fisch and Chris Sprouse do craft a nice quick story about Superman’s legacy however.  There are great Grant Morrison tales and there are the more incomprehensible ones.  Action Comics #18 lies somewhere in between those two.  Plus it’s better than any other Superman book DC is putting out.

Final Grade: ★★★  3/5 Stars

Review: Batman Earth One – Average at best

Issue: Batman: Earth One
Writer: Geoff Johns
Pencils: Gary Frank
Publisher: DC Comics
Release Date: 7/4/2012

From GEOFF JOHNS and GARY FRANK, the acclaimed team behind SUPERMAN: SECRET ORIGIN and the SHAZAM! stories in JUSTICE LEAGUE! In the tradition of SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE, this spectacular original graphic novel gives new insight into BRUCE WAYNE’S transformation into BATMAN and his first year as THE DARK KNIGHT

Story: 7/10 • Artwork: 9/10 • Overall 8/10
“Batman: Earth One” is a new take on an old tale. No, not really. It feels more like a reboot in the New 52 than a game changer of the “Earth One” universe. J. Michael Straczynski raised the bar with “Superman: Earth One.” In turn I hold DC Comics to a higher standard with the “Earth One” universe. I hope you do to.

Geoff Johns is a game changing writer, just look at the rainbow over in the Green Lantern titles. The Penguin as the mayor of Gotham City is not a game changing move, did Johns forget that Lex Luthor was president once. What “Batman: Earth One” was, is a very good Batman story with minor tweets to his origin. Bruce’s parents still get shot and die, and Bruce becomes Batman to fight the corrupt Gotham politicians. This sound like every other day for Batman, doesn’t it?

What John’s does will is develop supporting characters in the story. Alfred is a badass! Who doesn’t want to see Alfred running around with a shotgun? Also, John’s develops the characters just enough to where you want to see more of them by the end of the book. Harvey Bullock, James and Barbara Gordon are setup beautifully in this book. Johns even puts a twist on the Dents.

Gary Frank’s artwork is fluid in his storytelling and spectacular in his splash pages. Frank slows down the reader with his detail so that the reader can enjoy every panel. Frank draws action on level that only few have reached.

The problem with this book is that it’s not bold enough to be called an “Earth One” book. Johns needed to be bolder with Batman’s origin. You could have changed the meaning of the “no gun” rule or not killed his parents. That would have been bold or you could have killed them in a different way or killed someone else. If you killed Jim Gordon, that would have been bold.

The question that every person in a comic book shop should ask, is do I want to pay $22.99 for an average Batman story with great artwork? The answer is no, wait a month and buy a used copy for $10.

“Batman: Earth One” gets a release date and cover

DC Comics announced Monday morning that “Batman: Earth One” written by Geoff John with art by Gray Frank and Jon Sibal would be released on July 4th, 2012. DC also unveiled Frank’s cover to “Batman: Earth One” as well. The “Earth:One” series is a different take on the DC’s heroes origins. The best comparison could be the “Ultimate” universe from Marvel Comics.

Justice League #5 Review “We got this!”

Justice League #5Darkseid kicks ass. Half the Justice League got knocked-the-fuck out last issue, leaving Flash and Superman to deal with Darkseid. He sends them running for their lives as he fires target-seeking Omega beams from his friggin’ eyes to incinerate them. Flash fares well, but the same can’t be said for Superman. He get’s blasted, drops from the sky and get’s carried away by space demons. And that’s how this issue opens.

I’ve always been more a  Marvel zombie kind of guy, and until DC’s new 52, I never really gave Justice League a chance. So I’m not really familiar with its original history. But I can tell you from what I read of this opening arc it’s the new 52 JL origin story is awesome. I’ve read a lot of early criticisms that the story is too drawn out, not epic and short-changed some of the characters. I disagree. Look I didn’t care about JL at all when this started, I needed the clean slate to start with. Justice League always seemed unapproachable as a book for me, so being eased in to the origin was not so bad. The story may seem drawn-out to some but I like that it gave me a chance to like the characters and see how they interacted. And how is full-scale alien invasion led by Darkseid not epic? Yes some of the characters do get the background treatment, but mostly each one has gotten their moments as the arc has progressed. That being said, there is a couple of spots in this issue where I was left scratching my head.

The first one comes after the next round of attacks. Green Lanterns takes on Darkseid, thrashing him with a mega-construct of 40 medieval flails.  Darkseid brushes them off like it was freaking dandruff, then cracks Green Lantern in half. Well, not quite, but he does some serious damage and Hal is pretty jacked up. Then Darkseid takes off to do some more evil shit. Green Lantern wants to go after him but Batman stops him. He’s like “dude, you’re an idiot, you are all fucked up, you’ll get yourself killed.” Hal doesn’t care, he just want’s a piece of Darkseid and won’t listen to reason.  Batman has to slow him up and he takes off his mask and reveals his identity to Hal. “What? You are doing this now?” is Hal Jordan’s reaction. It mirrors my own. While I can sort of see Batman’s reasoning (trust and goodwill), it seems really out character for him to do something like that. Especially because he thinks Hal Jordan is a dick. He’s spent most of the arc telling him to cool his jets and pay attention. Insulting him at every chance he gets. I just don’t buy it. It threw me for a loop. However he manages to drive home his point. He and Green Lantern are the only two normal people on this team that don’t have inherent super powers. They have are alike in many ways and have to trust each other. Ultimately in this situation it’s not about them. They need to rally the troops and work as team instead of showboating as individuals. Or “Stop playing baseball and start playing football” as he put’s it. Since GL is jacked up he splits off to lead the rest of the team while Batman decides to get captured so he can get Superman back.

The next WTF comes when Green Lantern tries to be a leader. He gives an awkward kind of speech, but somehow everyone listens to him anyways and decided to band together. Then Hal lets loose the most embarrassing Saturday-morning-cartoon battle cry I’ve ever read in a comic, “We Got This!” Oh boy. You sure do. It was funny when Aquaman got called “Aquafresh” by Green Lantern but this battle cry was the worst. Flash immediately rips on him for it. Awkward banter ensues. Those kind of jokes just really fall flat for me. Maybe some younger kids will think it’s funny, but for the sake of future generations I hope not. This is the first time I’ve had some doubts about this series, so hopefully it’s a one-off and the playful exchanges can even out a bit.

This issue is not a total loss however. We do get a breathtaking glimpse of Apokolips in full hell-raising glory. Jim Lee and Scott Williams’ art is mostly rock-solid. Some of the panels in which Batman reveals his identity were a bit rushed, but other than that it was pretty much aces. I know there was some other inkers helping Scott out on this one, maybe that’s where they filled in. Alex Sinclair is the lead colorist and renders everything in a hyper modern style. There’s some really beautiful Kirby-dots on a the panel were Superman get’s blasted that have a rich depth you don’t normally see. Glow effects on GL’s constructs are done really well, you can see them pulse and radiate light. I’ve heard some people say it’s the coloring is a bit garish and the art feels like video game, and sometimes I cans see their point. There is a lot going on and I could maybe use a bit more separation in layers to push and pull some of the details. It does get busy and loud, but overall I wasn’t really distracted by it. The storytelling and panel work was clear, I didn’t get lost in the narrative and it looked good. Jim Lee and Scott Williams are a team that has been around the block a few times and they know how to get shit done. Sometimes that means getting some help with fill-in inkers and additional colorists.

Justice League #5 is  battle-heavy issue that is a much about learning to work together and being a team than it is kicking ass (or in this case taking a beating). It’s a fresh and exciting story with a few missteps. The tone of this book could really use a strong identity right about now to manage readers expectations. Is this a light-heart team book for teens and kids? Is it a PG-13 movie? Or is it going to be an aggressive team book with bickering and more adult interactions like Uncanny X-men or JSA used to be? It’s great that the story is unpredictable, but eventually, a lack of identity will bring this ship down. My vote is more drama less jokes. What do you guys think?

Superior #7 Review, feel good story?

Written by:  Mark Millar
Pencils by: Leinil Francis Yu
Inks by: Gerry Alanguilan
Colors by: Sunny Gho
Lettering by: VC’s Clayton Cowles
Cover by: Leinil Yu
Publisher: Marvel’s Icon & Millarworld
Superior #7 Cover
I never would have thought I’d say this about a Mark Millar comic, but this is a feel-good story with a lot of heart. Simon was just a regular kid that played basketball and went to school. His life got tragically changed forever when he got diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.  Here are some cold hard facts about MS from Wikipedia:

“A person with MS can suffer almost any neurological symptom or sign, including changes in sensation such as loss of sensitivity or tingling, pricking or numbness (hypoesthesia and paresthesia), muscle weakness, clonus, muscle spasms, or difficulty in moving; difficulties with coordination and balance (ataxia); problems in speech (dysarthria) or swallowing (dysphagia), visual problems (nystagmus, optic neuritis including phosphenes, or diplopia), fatigue, acute or chronic pain, and bladder and bowel difficulties.”

It exhaust me to even read those lists of symptoms, I couldn’t imagine the difficulty of living with them. So Simon ends up in a wheelchair and endures some serious changes to his life including vicious taunts from kids at school. Then a monkey in an astronaut suit grants him a wish that turns Simon into Superior. Superior is Millar’s love letter to Superman. He’s a fictional character in this world starring in movies and comic books, and when Simon wish is granted he turns into the actual character (not the actor that plays him) and becomes the world’s first superhero.

Simon gets a to be Superior for a week and then the rug get’s pulled out from under him. This Faust-like plot reveals the monkey-naut is a demon and he wants Simon to sell his soul to Satan in exchange for being Superior. What a dick! How completely cruel it is to do something like that? To take someone who is completely afflicted, and offers them superhuman powers, only to take it away unless they sell their soul. Not to mention what a shitty bait-and-switch sales tactic. It makes me mad just thinking about it.Now, I’m not too keen on religion in my comics, nor heavy-handed emotional manipulation, but I was able to look past that because the story advanced with a new twist at every turn. That’s why this comic is so good. It’s a clever narrative gets under your skin a bit. It challenges your sense of justice. You can’t help but have empathy for Simon. If you has MS would you sell your soul for super powers? I probably would. We see what a good kid he is when he decides to return to his old body and reject the deal. And your emotions get taken for a ride as we learn that an old-bully of Simon’s gets offered a similar deal to become Abraxas, Superior’s fictional arch-nemesis. He’s out to fuck up Simon and everything he holds dear. Temptation is out the door. The monkey-naut demon is just trying to force Simon into selling his soul at this point. Simon has to choose to become Superior and save the planet at the cost of his own soul or just let it all get destroyed. That brings us to the double-sized issue #7 finale, the one that declares, “the gloves are finally off”.

It’s no spoiler that Superior kicks some ass this issue. It’s on the cover. It’s a world-threatening show down and there is one big-ass holy hell of a beat down. The kind where there is mile-high explosions, outer-space brawls and entire city blocks get destroyed. Leinil Yu illustrates this beautifully in his signature style of loose line work, kool-aid colors (by Sonny Gho) and “dynamic pseudo-realism” (his words not mine). You can feel the brutality of the battle, and see the true impact and collateral damage a conflict like this can actually cause. Things get out of hand, and there are casualties. He does not spare us the sordid details. Also of note are his gloriously terrifying renderings of demons. The man can sure draw some hellish creatures when he wants to. Yu’s art can be a little rough around the edges at times and can come across as sloppy or rushed, but he really brings his “A” game to this issue and steps it up. Perhaps inks by Gerry Alanguilan help polished it up. Either way it was a really solid effort by the art team.

Once the epic bout of super-powered combat resolves we do finally get a cathartic and enjoyable conclusion. All the plot lines and loose ends are wrapped up, there’s no deus ex-machina cheat. The resolution is smart with a kind of right-in-front-of-your-face logic that’s refreshing. It’s a clue that’s been out in the open all along, anyone could have figure it out. Things are forever changed and there’s no going back to the status quo. That’s beauty of independent comics, you can actually write a third act that matters and has lasting consequences. I can actually imagine him pitching this, “It’s like the movie Big, with a Faust-like twist… meets Superman.” Millar interprets the more interesting parts of these stories, and gives it his own spin. That of course means lot’s of swearing, uncomfortable situations and obscene levels of graphic violence. It’s not for everyone, but I enjoyed the hell out of this comic. There is a bit of cheeky dialogue in the dénouement that I could do without, but more or less this is exactly the kind of popcorn Hollywood finish this comic needed. I felt good after reading the ending. And actually I was a bit moved when I discovered that this comic was dedicated to Christopher Reeve and Richard Donner. How fitting that respect is given to the actor and director of the first two Superman movies, where so much of the tone and mood of this comic borrows. If you are looking for that Millar story that’s a bit different from his usual grind of deviant heroes, and depraved villains give Superior a shot (but if you are just fine with that sort of thing like I am, the Supercrooks preview at end of this book should be right up your alley).

DC’s New 52: Lesser known titles you should add to your pull list

Dc’s new 52 has been a shockingly  successful experiment in my opinion at least after this first month. If you’re like me you have to pick and choose what comics you get each week .  We all know Superman , Batman , Wonder Woman and Green Lantern are going to sell and the reboot  has injected new life into each of those respective books.  However there have been a few Comics and characters that belong at the top of your pull list along with the aforementioned Superheroes. I wanted to highlight a few of those titles below and give props to the creative teams that are making me giddy with excitement for issue #2.

Batwoman #1

Written by : J.H. Williams III & W.  Haden Blackman

Art by: J.H. Williams III

Let me start by saying this was one of the books I was most excited about but also  most worried about. Over a year ago Detective Comics handed itself over to writer Greg Rucka and artist J.H. Williams while Bruce Wayne was Traveling through time with identity issues . This lead to an amazing run on Detective Comics that helped set the tone and character for Batwoman rebooting with issue #1 . After much delay and a change in writers ( Greg Rucka left and handed over shared writing duties ) Batwoman is back again in a issue #1 and it is just as spectacular as it was a year ago.

Immediately J.H. Williams’ Art and Layouts will knock your socks off. He uses a painterly style with Batwoman and pencils and inks for her alter ego Kate Kane  . The Layouts themselves are some of the most creative Ive ever seen . You can tell every panel is thought out and you could spend an hour on each page easily making this one of the most beautiful titles of the relaunch. Further more I’m impressed with the ease at which our writing team is able to drop you right into the story and still inform you of the characters interactions and back story . The plot is great, and the antagonists are perfectly creepy. A well timed argument towards the end of the issue catches you up on anything you may have missed over a year ago while also continuing to push the story  forward with ease. This book is amazing and is firing on all cylinders and deserves your attention.

 

Best surprise of the new 52 launch so far

 

Animal Man #1

Writer: Jeff Lemire

Artist: Travel Foreman and Dan Green

Jeff Lemire uses a very ingenious way to bring us into the story, and catch us up on all things Animal Man by having us read an interview featuring our title character on the first page. What follows is a double page spread showing Buddy Baker settling into his new life as Father and family man. This is a very grounded book which is great for building tension in a book where no one feels “safe” . Buddy however has an itch to go back out on Patrol as Animal Man and things go from bad to worse by the end of the issue. The art is greatly detailed with nice muted colors and a dream sequence with which the artist uses  ink wash with pops of  red to really create a sense of anguish and dread. However its the cliff hanger at the end involving  his daughter Maxine ,  who has a unique take on her fathers power that has me biting at my nails to check out the next issue.

 

 

 

Swamp Thing #1

Writer : Scott Snyder

Artist : Yanick Paquette

Scott Snyder, who has been  on a roll recently with Batman and Detective Comics now flexes his writing muscles on the new Swamp Thing reboot.  Right off the bat we are introduced to a future Metropolis with Superman noticing Dead birds falling from the sky and then we are quickly sent to the Bat cave where we see Batman puzzled as his pet bats scatter and fall all around him. Scott Snyder quickly chooses to bring us into Alec Hollands life as he is now working in construction giving up his life’s work as a scientist in the process.  For fans wanting to get a taste of what Superman will look and sound like after he’s grown out of his T shirt and jeans phase , look no further. Superman and Alec Holland share a great moment together in the opening pages that touches on how important of a character he is to the DC Universe now. I especially like the stern and direct approach Alec takes with Superman . Also having Alec remember all of Swamp Things memories from his long storied past is a nice way to show us that there is going to be a symbiotic relationship again between the two characters in the near future.

Yanick Paquette does amazing things with foliage and dead animals in this book . Necks get twisted , creepy bugs fly into ears, and people die in horrible ways , this by no means is kid stuff. After this first issue I’m convinced he was the perfect choice for art duties. The immediate threat as gruesome and shocking as it is , borrows a bit from The Happening .  Instead of their being creepy wind , we get creepy wind with an actual disgusting monster. Scott however manages to inject enough intrigue and despair at the end of the issue with Swamp Thing coming back to claim his host.  I am counting the days for the next issue to see how all of these story threads play out.

Man of Steel set photos: full suit

Well what do you think about the suit for the Man of Steel? Personally I’m a huge fan, super-hero suit need to be dark. It is very hard to pull off a skin-tight suit, just look around the convention floor. I love all my cosplayers but I don’t want a bright-colored, cartoon looking suit in my movie.

I do like the look of the Ursla looking character from the last photo. Man of Steel release date is June 14, 2012.

New Comics for the week of 11/11/09

There are some great new books out this week. Plus we are in Week 2 of the “Green Lantern Give Away!” We have Orange and Indigo Lantern rings this week.

Batman / Doc Savage Special #1batman-doc-savage.jpg
Written by Brian Azzarello, Phil Noto.

Doc Savage returns to DC Comics…and comes face-to-fist with the Batman! Superstar scribe Brian Azzarello (100 BULLETS, JOKER) and the breathtaking art of Phil Noto combine to shine the first light on a shadowy new version of the DC Universe, where the thugs run rampant, corruption runs deep, and even heroes can’t be trusted! Doc Savage, the Man of Bronze, hates what he’s heard about the connections between a grisly murder and Gotham City’s violent new vigilante. But the Batman can’t abide do-gooders getting in his way…and his .45 just won’t stay in its holster!

Be here for this vital prologue to an upcoming 6-issue miniseries by Azzarello and Rags Morales (IDENTITY CRISIS), which will pull back the curtain to reveal the full width and breadth of DC’s new pulp-influenced universe. This special issue also features sketchbook material by Rags Morales that will show you just what you’re in for! You might think you’re ready – but you’re very, very wrong…

punisher-max.jpgPunisher MAX #1
Written by Jason Aaron, Steve Dillon.

Mature Readers

An all-new ongoing series from the acclaimed team of Jason Aaron (WOLVERINE: WEAPON X) and Steve Dillon (PUNISHER: WELCOME BACK FRANK), two guys who were born to tell the exploits of Marvel’s most brutal vigilante. Wilson Fisk is a bodyguard for mob boss Don Rigoletto, but he has his eyes on a much bigger prize, and he’s gonna use Frank Castle to help him realize his dreams. The biggest story in MAX history begins here, as we witness the birth of the greatest villain the Punisher has ever faced.

Supergod #1supergod.jpg
Written by Warren Ellis.

Mature Readers

SUPERGOD: praying to be saved by a man who can fly will get you killed. From the creator of THE AUTHORITY and PLANETARY comes the craziest and most horrifying superhero comic you’ve ever read! In the world of SUPERGOD, superhumans are the ultimate expression of the Messiah complex, and scientists can build Messiahs who will fly down from the skies to save the world. No-one thought about how they’d do it — or even if they’d want to. So begins the apocalyptic tomorrow of SUPERGOD — the story of how supermen killed us all and ended the world just because we wanted to be rescued by human-shaped things from beyond Science itself! Take every superhero comic ever published, shove them into a nuclear-powered blender, soak it in bad vodka and set the whole thing alight — and SUPERGOD will crawl out and eat your brain!

This five issue color series is drawn by Garrie Gastony with colors by Digikore. SUPERGOD is available with a Regular cover painted by Felipe Massafera, a Wraparound by series artist Garrie Gastony, and a special retailer incentive Church Of Supergod Edition!

CINDERELLA FROM FABLETOWN WITH LOVE #1 (MR)[singlepic=112,320,240,,right]
Written by Shawn McManus, Chris Roberson.

Mature Readers
When supernatural artifacts from the Homelands begin surfacing in the modern world, it falls to Cinderella, Fabletown’s best kept (and best dressed) secret agent to stop the illegal trafficking. But can Cindy foil the dark plot before Fabletown and its hidden, exiled inhabitants are exposed once and for all? And how does her long lost Fairy Godmother factor into the equation? Whether she’s soaring through clouds, deep-sea diving, or cracking jaws, Cindy travels from Manhattan to Dubai and hooks up with a handsome, familiar accomplice who may be harboring secret motives of his own. Meanwhile, trouble brews back home in Fabletown when Cindy’s overworked, underappreciated assistant decides to seize control of The Glass Slipper, Cindy’s exclusive shoe boutique.

Writer Chris Roberson (occasional contributor to HOUSE OF MYSTERY and JACK OF FABLES), artist Shawn McManus (SANDMAN, THESSALY: WITCH FOR HIRE) and evocative new cover painter Chrissie Zullo deliver Cindy’s first major solo adventure replete with sex, spies and magical shoes in the 6-issue CINDERELLA: FROM FABLETOWN WITH LOVE.

[singlepic=113,320,240,,left]LOBO HIGHWAY TO HELL #1 (OF 2)
Written by Sam Kieth.

A Lobo story like nothing you’ve seen before! You can imagine that when you live life the way the Main Man lives life – loud, loose, and ludicrously violent – you might pick up an enemy or two along the way. An enemy like, say, oh I don’t know, Satan himself. And Satan, my friends, does not play around. Hell’s iron-fisted ruler has a serious mad-on for the last Czarnian, and he’s gonna hit Lobo right in his blackened, scabrous heart. So Lobo’s just gonna have to hit him harder. Repeatedly. In the FACE. But first, Lobo has to go to Hell…a little sooner than anticipated! Metal icon Scott Ian of Anthrax makes his comics debut, joining forces with visionary creator Sam Kieth to bring you a Lobo story that’s so over the top, you won’t even remember what the top used to look like! Bleeding dolphins, demonic Chihuahuas, the world’s worst cruise ship, exploding moons, severed heads, and still more sick fraggin’ stuff all await you on the Highway to Hell – don’t miss a single twisted page! On sale November 4 o 1 of 2 o 64 pg, FC, $6.99 US

ASSAULT ON NEW OLYMPUS[singlepic=111,320,240,,right]
Written by Rodney Buchemi, Greg Pak, Fred Van Lente.

Hercules! Spider-Man! Ares! New Avengers! Wolverine! Mighty Avengers! The Agents of Atlas! If there’s a bigger event this fall, we don’t know what it could be! At long last, the Prince of Power takes the fight to his villainous stepmother Hera and the forces of the Olympus Group — just as she unleashes the most terrifying threat the Marvel Universe has ever seen! But first Herc has to gather together a star-studded strike force from the ranks of the New and the Mighty Avengers! First on the list: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN! But why is Everyone’s Friendly Neighborhood fighting against Hercules? Has he joined the side of the dark gods? It’s webs and wisecracks versus Olympian power in this super-sized one-shot! (There will be major property damage, we guarantee.) Plus: The iHerc team proudly welcomes our new INCREDIBLE HERCULES on-going back-up feature… THE AGENTS OF ATLAS, written by fan favorite scribe Jeff Parker! When the forces of New Olympus target Venus, will Jimmy Woo lead his team into the fray for or against Hercules’ forces?

The dead rise, familiar faces haunt mutants across the world, and Selene takes her final steps into becoming a god. It all begins here in a full-length X-FORCE extravaganza, and continues in the pages of next month’s issue of X-FORCE…but the shockwaves of this terrifying event will be felt in NEW MUTANTS and X-MEN: LEGACY as well, and those reverberations begin here in two all-new bonus tales.

Web of Spider-Man #1Web of Spider-Man #1
Written by Tom DeFalco, J.M. DeMatteis, Ron Frenz, Val Semeiks.

Tying into upcoming events in Amazing Spider-Man including WHO IS BEN REILLY? and THE GAUNTLET!

Anchor #1Anchor #1
Written by Brian Churilla, Phil Hester.

The Anchor. Holy warrior, unholy war. Freak of nature, beast of burden, hulking outcast, medieval prize fighter, Viking raider, God’s leg-breaker. One thousand years ago a hulking outcast sought refuge in the crumbling ruins of an ancient monastery, offering in return the one thing he had to give – his fists. Transformed into an immortal warrior monk standing at the gates of Hell itself to keep our world free from its invading armies, The Anchor is mysteriously tricked into centuries of slumber. But today, this holy warrior rises to battle all the unholy monsters unleashed during his slumber. Cataclysmic action, quirky humor, and profound pathos for fans of Hellboy and The Goon. Covers by Brian Churilla and Rafael Albuquerque.

New Comics for the week of 09/30/09

[singlepic=101,320,240,,left]Comic Spotlight: Die Hard Year One #1
Written by Howard Chaykin, Stephen Thompson.

America’s greatest action hero is translated into the sequential art form for the first time! Every great action hero got started somewhere. Batman Began. Bond had his Casino Royale. And for John McClane, more than a decade before the first Die Hard movie, he’s just another rookie cop, an East Coast guy working on earning his badge in New York City during 1976’s Bicentennial celebration… and the Summer of Sam. Too bad for John McClane, nothing’s ever that easy. Join legendary industry creator Howard Chaykin on a thrill ride that’s rung up over $1 billion in box office worldwide and become the gold standard for classic action! Yippee Ki Yay! Covers by Dave Johnson, Jock, and John Paul Leon.

Here are the rest of the book coming out this week.
