Writer: Sean McKeever Art: UDON Publisher: Marvel Comics (Marvel Age) Note: This review covers Sentinel Vol.1 #7-12. Trying to make up for the trouble he caused when using his found Sentinel to scare kids at his school, Juston Seyfert finds himself using his Sentinel to covertly help people, saving a truck driver and later rescuing [...]
If you haven’t read it already, Marvel’s X-Termination crossover (between Astonishing X-Men, X-Treme X-Men and Age of Apocalypse) is fantastic. It’s funny – the massively-hyped crossovers, the Secret Invasions and Age of Ultrons and whatnot get all the marketing but none of the quality. (I do realise that the fact that BENDIS! is responsible for [...]
Writers: Archie Goodwin, Allyn Brodsky and Gerry Conway Pencillers: Various Publisher: Marvel Comics Note: This review covers Iron Man Vol.1 #12-38 and Daredevil Vol.1 #73. This volume does something very good… but in a very bad way. One of the perils of sequential storytelling with a popular character is that you need to make it [...]
The above panel is from Iron Man Vol.1 #36. Marianne doesn’t seem to have a great deal of substance. She’s one of the “daaaaaaahling” set. In fact, that’s why Tony called her – for a night of forgetting anything of importance.
The above sequence is from 1970′s Iron Man Vol.1 #28. What a stunner! This is a flashback. In the present, he’s straddling her on the backseat of his car, while she’s unconscious and clad only in her nightie. Picking up where he left off, I guess!
The panel above is from the last page of Iron Man Vol.1 #19 (1969). The thing is, Madame Masque is wearing a masque! How does this even work? Now, earlier in this issue, we did learn that the elements of the Iron Man costume and mask are soft and floppy until he presses a button [...]
Yes, let us all nicely press our clothes after washing and drying them! Oh, wait. I didn’t put a comma after iron. So, Iron Man 3 comes out in a few weeks. I still haven’t seen Iron Man 2 because… you know… I don’t like Iron Man. That said, I liked him a lot more [...]
I haven’t had the world’s best luck getting into DC comics. I was born around the time the first Crisis on Infinite Earths event happened, so by the time I started reading I already had the “But what if they do another Crisis and all the stuff I’ve invested in is retconned?” feeling in the back of my head. [...]
Writer: John Byrne Penciller: John Byrne Publisher: Marvel Comics Note: This review covers Sensational She-Hulk Vol.1 #s 1-8. Wowzer! It’s like Fabian Nicieza and Peter David teamed-up and tried to be the opposite of BENDIS!. Hit the spot at just the right time! Poor Shulkie. She’d had a very unpopular first series, she’d had some moderately-popular involvement in the Avengers and [...]
I have had a letter printed in this week’s FF #5. You may notice that it is the same letter I had printed in Fantastic Four #5 and Fantastic Four #5AU. You may also notice that it is the same page, save for the colours. This series seemed fun to begin with, and had the added bonus of Alex Power, but I have [...]
