Deadpool kills Deadpool #1 came out this week and it looks like Deadpool's murderous campaign against the multiverse finally spills into Earth-616, the home of our beloved "original" Deadpool! It's the war of the Deadpools! If that sounds awesome to you, that's probably because it is.
The art is great and reminds me of the art style from the Deadpool and Cable series and the cover art is great as well as you can see up above. The action is solid and the humor is giggle inducing. To make it better, our favorite marvel corps makes it appearance, courtesy of the majestic Bea Arthur! On a more serious tone, the story looks like it has alot of potential and if it is handled right, will keep satisfying you and me just as Issue #1 did.
Not too crazy about the evil deadpool(s) costume redesign and those ba**tards killed the dog!
Pick up this ish, looks like there's a great ride ahead.
In the comic book series Earth 2, a dark knights makes an appearance in their very first annual. For those who are unaware of what Earth-2 is about, it takes place after an invasion where the Wonders, consisting of characters like Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Robin, Catwoman, and Supergirl, seemingly sacrifice themselves to stop an invasion from Apokolips that was spearheaded by Steppenwolf. The Earth-2 comic book series deals with characters who step up, some reluctantly and some willingly, to fill the power vacuum that formed after the Wonders disappeared. So far, characters like the Green Lantern (based on the original Alan Scott green lantern), Dr. Fate, Flash, and the Atom. And now, there's a new Batman in town. His identity is unknown (much to my angst) but he makes a very dramatic appearance, blasting his way in using a very strange and very un-batman like weapon that shoots red explosiveballs. He is also seeming much more ruthless than the Batman we are accustomed to as he executes Mister Icicle, obviously based on Mr.Freeze, with his red ball gun. It also appears that he may know Hawk Girl. This new dark knight seems very capable physically but not as capable as the old Batman as this new one seems semi-dependent on technology, leading me to believe this new Batman may not be one of Bruce Wayne's more physically accustomed proteges like Damien or Dick Grayson but his advanced weaponry suggest that he may be Bane, who is supposedly Earth-2 Batman's brother but i do not have any links, as Bane is a genius and could come up with these weapons design to make for the fact that he may be stronger than his supposed brother but not a skilled or agile but since i know next to nothing about the Bane of Earth-2, it is very hard for me to say. What do you think fellow Earth-2 fans?!
I remember years ago reading a graphic novel where the ultimate avengers were fighting hulk when he had the super soldier serum inside of him. its the one where hulk said he was going to turn giant mans head into a toilet.
I finished watching Into Darkness earlier this evening and i was impressed. The movie was great and khan was an absolute badas$ and I recently read some reviews and one of the complaints was that Khan was "whitewashed", changed so that he looked white instead of his imprevious incarnations in film and since that was brought up , i too am a little bugged. the actor who played khan was a-ok in my opinion but should they have made his race match the previous incarnations? My explanation for his whitewashing was that his appearance was altered when he was found because some one like Khan might be recognized if he does not change. I sincerely hope if he does appear, they change his appearance to match his previous appearances in film but keep his voice. What do you think?
Finally picked up the two recent issues and i am very impressed. The art is fantastic and the story is compelling. I must say that writer James Robinson and artists Nicola and Trever Scott definately know what they are doing. Issue 11 was great and we got an interesting peek at Wotan's previous life but Issue 12 was better. After defeating Wotan, Jay Garrick suggests using his resources to get people to back up them up as a new team of wonders which would be awesome! What do you think? I recommend picking up these two issues. I cannot wait for the return of Batman.
I was just looking through the kickstarter website, in the comic book section of course, when i came across this potential diamond in the rough. In case you don't know, on Kickstarter.com, people tell about their projects, whether it be a comic book or a new book, and try to get people to pledge money and help further their project and usually, they will offer some incentives for people who pledge certain amounts. Anyway, this comic book project i came upon is a horror/fantasy comic book from the looks of it and its seems pretty good. it's called Sum of Light at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/brianmccranie/the-sum-of-light-issue-1-a-lovecraft-inspired-horr?ref=tag.
Right now i am watching the 2011 prequel The Thing and i thought it would be an awesome + scary episode if there was a Doctor Who episode where Dr. Who has to confront, survive, and stop the Thing. If its too violent for tv, they can do a mini-series which would be equally awesome with the right writer and author. What do you think my fellow whovians? Would you like to see this crossover happen? If not, which crossover would you like to see happen between Dr. Who and [insert creature(s) name here]? Excelsior and Alonns-y!
As some of you know, it has been hinted that Peter Parker may regain control and i do not approve at all. Im have way too much fun with Doc Ock being behind the wheel and i love this new dark and gritty spider-man. I do approve peter parker getting control of his body...3-4 years from now. I want this to be a long term change and i want the transition between doc ock and peter parker to take several issue. I want the transition to be rough and tough. I would love it doc ock cloned spiderman and transferred his mind into the blank clone. that would be totally awesome. What do you think my fellow web-heads?
