Spoiler notice: The following post contains information about this week’s comic-books in the U.S., so it may (and indeed does) reveal plot details have not yet been addressed in the Spanish edition.
WE MENTION THESE, BUT YOU MAY WANT OTHER…
Chaos War:Ares #1: Not that bad. I mean, yeah, it could be better, also worst. So let’s face it: Gods kicking other gods ass rocks.
Red Robin #18: Tim has no luck with women. Or maybe it’s just the opposite. Still cool.
Thor: the Mighty Avenger #7: Those scientists look like the ones from the muppets from, well, The Muppets show. Mmm-mmm. And Chris Samnee is my new god.
Rebels #23Oh, my STARS and garters! Look who’s back!
Incredible Hulks #618 Another ‘Chaos War’ tie-in done right. A-Bomb meets his resurrected predecesor and Stephen Strange makes an interesting cameo. Oh, and guess what: Pelletier raises the bar again.
Booster Gold #39 Pages 18 and 19 of my copy are wet. Yeah i cried like Booster does in THAT scene. DeMatteis and Giffen know THEIR children so damn well it hurts.
Shadowland After The Fall #1 Batman…. Sorry. Black Panther has a new outfit. Yeah, that’s more like it. Now i’ve seen everything.
Flash #7 Villain goes free with aid from other villain. BIG trouble for Wally. That’s it. Well, and boomerang’s origin. FTR: Not so secret. We’ll miss Manapul’s art.
And a lot more. If ya wish, you know what to do in the comments.
BIG PQC! OF THE WEEK
ULTIMATE AVENGERS 3 #4
Mark Millar and Steve Dillon insane clown pose actually make me laugh this time. (Marvel Comics)
Aviso de Spoiler
Millar, you slut. You know how to make a freak happy.
BTW: That was just a dream. Easy, Twitlight fans girls. Don’t kill me yet. More Millargasm: Stark Vs Stark. LOL’d so hard my chest still hurts. True Story.
Moving on. Anthony, the man who trained Blade (and Daredevil Stick and some others against the Vampires, got bitten a month ago. Oh, man. Wait, we already know that. Tha’s not the PQC i was expecting. Oh, look there’s more. The war is coming. SHIELD forces against the new Vampires. Anthony, just a quick reminder, wears the original Iron Man Armor and it’s their self-proclaimed leader. Problem is Nerd hulk wants to be the leader too, so there will be blood. Anthony accept the challenge. the following image is just for your eyes to enjoy like a child on Thanks giving.
PQC FINALISTS OF THE WEEK
NEW AVENGERS #7 (Marvel Comics )
Aviso de Spoiler
Ok, Bendis did it again. Heroes sitting around and chatting about everything. All in the same room. A bottled issue! And it’s hilarious.
First things first: They get paid for being an avenger. Luke doesn’t like it. WTF? Dude, you’re the one who invented the ‘hero for hire’ business? Oh, it’s an ‘Alpha-Macho hurt in his inner self thing ‘cause other Alpha-Macho paid him for work’. OK. Enter Jessica:
Moron. Anyway, everyone gets a paycheck minus Spidey. Yup, it’s not like he needed it whatsoever (see AMS: BIG TIME) but the ‘parker luck’ makes his move on this side of the Marvel universe. Poor Peter. Oy.
Aaaaand there’s the nanny issue. Seriously, they need one. Candidates assemble!
Machine Man. Thx, Immonen. We miss Nextwave too. Like a lot. Moving on, the winner is….drum-roll….Squirrel Girl! And by the look of it she and Wolverine got some kind of – sexual? – history. Please be kind, Marvel. She’s a teenager who recently – RECENTLY – turn eighteen. Again, recently.
FYI: Dr.Strange is the new official member of the team… wich also means Wong is the new ‘second rate’ Jarvis of the Avengers Mansion. and he’s not happy. I don’t blame him. When the group was hiding in Dr.Strange’s Sancta Sanctorum back in Civil War and Secret Invasion they blew up the house. Twice. So the force be with you, Wong.
JUSTICE LEAGUE: GENERATION LOST #15 (DC Comics )
Aviso de Spoiler
ey-dokey. Herewe go again, my friends. Winick-hater talking so go figure. Fact: Maxwell Lord’s revenge over Wonder Woman was going acording to his plan…’til no one on Earth seems to remember who Wonder Woman is. For real. Just like no one remember who Max is now no one is able to remember or find any previous info about her. She’s no one to the world. Wonder What?
Of course i only can assume it’s because what’s happening in her own title (with JMS’s run a la What If…?) so no worries here. There’s no way i can blame Winick on this one, so let’s move ahead.
Anyway, you know who remembers Diana aside from Max? Yeah, Captain Atom, Booster, Ice and Fire. Why? No clue. There’s no possible explanation here. I can truly believe Max is immune to whatever trick/gizmo/tech that made everyone forget ‘bout Diana. After all he’s a mastermind meta-gizmo himself so i’m fine with that. Our 4 heroes? Not so happy about it. Just for the sake of the history? Ok, i can buy that one too. Next.
Ok. Max sends an army to find and kill our heroes in their new hidden secret base. The army is a mix of robots and the Creature Commandos. F’king yay double Splash page, bro. FACT ONE: they got weapons. FACT 2: big ones. They break into the facility and hit. Ba-boom. Ba-baaam. Ba-da-bang. Sure, every single hero got shields of some sort. Ice too. (Btw, another lame try to re-tell his origin make me go nuts for a little while but again, i can’t blame Winick here. He’s just trying to fix his mistake. You know who doesn’t have a shield and was caught off guard?
Now you can join me against Winick. Go to hell, Judd. Not another member of the JLI!!! Let them alone, for ‘the invisible man who lives in the sky’ sake!
SUPERBOY #2 (DC Comics)
Aviso de Spoiler
Ok, despite the previous scene would make an excellent WTF….. (Poison Ivy plus Superboy: ‘Hot cocoa and im yours, big lad.’ And then he refuses. Not even second thoughts. I mean, OK. She’s the baddie and got a never-ending record of criminal assault, murder and all that nasty stuff. But, seriously…the lady got nothing but a couple of leaves and green skin and long red hair: MAN! You’re 18! Take your time, be a regular youngster and stare at her chest like everyone in your position would do. That’s the kind of stuff that pulls me back from a comic book. I can believe a boy can fly. Just don’t make him act like a gentleman ‘cause he’s been raised in a very niiiiiiiice family with high values and respect for everyone else. I just don’t buy it anymore.)
Sorry, where was i? Oh yeah. Wait, let’s rewind a sec: ‘Despite the previous scene would make an excellent WTF……….’ the winner is another one:
PARASITE FROGS! HOW’S NO ONE CAME WITH THIS IDEA BEFORE!. The ‘Patent Pending’ line also rocks. See? That’s plausible. Pink frogs. If only inter-company crossovers were ON right now..I would pay for a ‘Frog Thor Vs Parasite Frogs.
