Review: Ms. Marvel #29

July 27th, 2008 Comments off

I haven’t really been following this title, and now I’m very, very sorry. I also haven’t been following every tie-in with this event, but I’ve been following some of them and this is one of the few issues that has been entirely in the present. This is what I’ve been looking for in the narrative. Battles against overwhelming odds, chase scenes, and a surprise on the last page to get you ready for the next issue. What more can you ask for?

Brian Reed tells the tale of what happens to Ms. Marvel as one of the only heroes fighting the Skrulls in New York. I don’t know where all the other heroes in the Marvel U are, but I can tell you where the Skrulls are. Well, actually I can’t because they seem to be popping up everywhere, but there are a boatload of them in this issue and Mr. Reed makes it clear that they don’t like Ms. Marvel, or her resistance to their invasion, very much.

Doing a fine job on art, we’ve got Adriana Melo on pencils, Mariah Benes on inks, and Paulo Siqueira on pages 11 – 16. They convey the scale of the invasion and the overwhelming forces the heroes face beautifully. Now, I generally try to keep my reviews on the positive side but I have to interject here that while the art is well done, it doesn’t really do anything for me. These are professional comic book artists who have achieved mastery of their art form, so I don’t want to take away from that, but I didn’t feel that this was the best this book could have or should have looked. That said, the story does move along well and is one of the best tie-ins I’ve read so far.

Recommended for anyone following Secret Invasion.

Review: Black Panther #39

July 27th, 2008 Comments off

The Skrulls think an invasion of Wakanda will be a walk in the park. But King T’Challa, the Black Panther, and the citizens of Wakanda have other plans! It’s non-stop Secret Invasion excitement as the Skrulls bring the fight to Wakanda’s front door! Black Panther #39 features the new creative team of writer Jason Aaron and artist Jefte Palo. Story wise, I thought this issue was a really good read. I loved the back and forth between the Skrull battleship and the Wakandan command center leading up to a final confrontation at the gates of Wakanda. I really appreciated the insight we get into the motivation of the Skrull Commander leading the Wakandan invasion. For me, it really helped make the battle feel more than just another Skrull attack. You knew the Skrull leading this mission was fighting for a purpose and I felt that really added to the story. Really great writing on Jason Aaron’s part. The art from Jefte Palo was kinda hit or miss for me. There were a couple of splash pages that I thought looked really good, especially some of the battle scenes. But than there were other spots that just didn’t really do anything for me. Overall, this was a really good issue and an excellent tie-in to the Secret Invasion event. There were some really well done battle sequences and the story was well written. This book is definitely worth picking up!

All-New Iron Man Series Blast Off Into Stores Today!

May 7th, 2008 Comments off

There’s only one superhero everyone’s talking about — Iron Man — and today you can check out three new series featuring the Armored Avenger! Debuting in stores today, Invincible Iron Man #1, Iron Man: Viva Las Vegas #1 and Avengers/Invaders #1 feature Iron Man in all new stories from the industry’s top creators!

An all-new era for Iron Man begins with Invincible Iron Man #1, a brand new ongoing series from rising star writer Matt Fraction (Immortal Iron Fist, upcoming Uncanny X-Men) and red-hot artist Salvador Larroca (Amazing Spider-Man). As the son of a fallen enemy conspires to destroy Tony Stark, armed with Iron Man technology and all the advantages of youth, Iron Man may find out that this is one challenge he can’t overcome! A perfect jumping-on point for all fans of Iron Man, this series also features all your favorites such as James Rhodes and Pepper Potts!

Jon Favreau, director of the hit Iron Man film, joins with acclaimed artist Adi Granov for Iron Man: Viva Las Vegas #1 (of 4), the newest limited series from the Marvel Knights imprint. When Tony Stark heads to sin city for some much needed rest, he plans to enjoy the many pleasures of the city — but he’s about to discover a much larger threat hidden behind the glitz and glamour! What do a fifty-foot dragon statue, beautiful archeologist and plague of lizards mean? Well… it’s time to power up that armor!

The super heroes of WW2 have arrived in our time and they’re about to clash with Earth’s Mightiest in Avengers/Invaders #1 (of 12)! The award winning team behind Project Superpowers, Justice and Earth X — legendary writer/artist Alex Ross and acclaimed scribe Jim Krueger — team with fan-favorite artist Steve Sadowski for a twelve-issue Marvel Comics event, packaged by Dynamite Entertainment, that’ll leave the Avengers forever altered! But will these two teams of heroes be allies… or enemies?

And be sure not to miss Secret Invasion #2, from the superstar team of Brian Bendis and Leinil Yu, as the comic book event of the year continues!

Some jobs require more than a man of steel — and today, you’ll learn why Iron Man is the hero everyone’s buzzing about in these can’t miss series!

Marvel Noise Episode 33

May 6th, 2008 Comments off

We’re short and sweet this week. Okay, the sweet may be my exaggeration, but this is a shorter episode than you’re used to. Because Backwards Dave was kind enough to send in a Bring ’em Back and Carlos called in with comments on New Avengers #40, you are rewarded with my ramblings for a few minutes. Somehow, that doesn’t seem fair…

Comics mentioned this week include Invincible Iron Man, X-Factor: The Quick and the Dead, Young X-Men, Iron Man: Viva Las Vegas, Avengers/Invaders, Logan, Mighty Avengers, and Secret Invasion.

Get it here.

Infiltration Success: Secret Invasion Tie-Ins Sellout

May 6th, 2008 Comments off

April saw Secret Invasion begin its takeover of the Marvel Universe as the first issue was met with an almost instant sellout and was subsequently rushed back to press for a second printing. As the invasion spreads throughout other Marvel titles, the sellouts continue!

Secret Invasion tie-ins Mighty Avengers #12, New Avengers #40 and Ms. Marvel #26 have sold out at Diamond. Marvel has no plans on going back to press at this time.

These sellouts follow the success of the Secret Invasion: Infiltration issues Captain Marvel #3-5 and Ms. Marvel #25, which also racked up sellouts and a must-have collection of their own.

As Secret Invasion #2 hits stores May 7th, be sure to pick up the other May Secret Invasion tie-ins in Mighty Avengers #13 and #14, New Avengers #41, Secret Invasion: Fantastic Four #1, Captain Britain and MI13 #1, Incredible Hercules #117 and Ms. Marvel #27.

Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on upcoming Secret Invasion tie-ins.

Preview: Mighty Avengers #14

April 30th, 2008 Comments off

Sentry Is Targeted By The Skrulls in Mighty Avengers!

The Skrull hunt continues! After the shocking reveal of a new Howling Commandos team in the last issue, Eisner-award winning writer, and the brain behind Secret Invasion, Brian Michael Bendis focuses on the Golden Guardian of Good in Mighty Avengers #14! This Secret Invasion tie-in, with eye popping art from rising star Khoi Pham (Incredible Hercules), answers the questions surrounding the erratic Sentry and arrives wrapped in a stunning cover by artist Marko Djurdjevic!

A continuing enigma to the Marvel Universe, Sentry’s fragile mental state makes him a ticking time bomb, leaving everyone around him in constant danger. In the Sentry’s darkest hour, one could only expect an appearance from his arch-nemesis, The Void… but how does this tie into the Skrull invasion?

Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Mighty Avengers and all other Secret Invasion tie-ins as they continue to sell out at Diamond and as fans continue to ask “Who do you trust?”

What are the Skrulls’ plans for Bob Reynolds? How does his wife Lindy factor in? Find out the answers to these questions and more in Mighty Avengers #14!
