Mark Millar on Astonishing X-men #17....

"Mother of God.

That was a good comic.

God help whoever follows because this is my favourite run on X-Men ever."

Amen, brother.

Pitch-Perfect Astonishing X-men 17 Review...

...with huuuuuuuuuge spoilers. Read the comic first. So I guess this would be a terrible review, if your purpose in reading reviews is to decide whether or not to buy a comic, but since everybody and their Aunt Netta should be reading Astonishing anyways.... When you're really excited just after reading the issue, read this.

My picks for the past week:
Astonishing X-men #17
Ultimate Fantastic Four #34
Moon Knight #5
Civil War #4
X-Factor #11

Peace.

Batman #657 – This Grant Morrison/Andy Kubert run on Batman has certainly started off with a bang and the end of the last issue indicated that this issue ought to be a very fun read. I don’t know how long it’ll last, given Grant Morrison’s tendency to get really weird, but right now this comic is excellent. Batman is good again – it’s been a long time, but it sure is nice to see again…

Civil War: Frontline #6 – What’s going to happen to Speedball?! He’s being transferred to that freakish prison in the Negative Zone, and you definitely get the feeling he’s in for a world of trouble. There are only four more issues left after this one; so we’re most of the way there; I hope thing start resolving soon…

Eternals #4 – Okay, I admit it. I thought this series was going to be terrible. I just didn’t see any way even Neil Gaiman could salvage The Eternals and make them worth reading. I WAS WRONG. This book has been a consistent must-read. Check it out – it’s worth it.

Heroes for Hire #2 – This has been one of the more fun books tying in to the whole Civil War story, and the first issue did not disappoint. Expect more of the same in this issue as the lovely ladies (and Humbug!) of Heroes for Hire start running in high powered vigilantes, some of whom used to be their friends.

Jack of Fables #3 – Every bit as good as the regular Fables title, this series has been turning heads. Jack has declared that Mr. Revise cannot hold him, and he’s plotting his escape. In this issue…well, let’s see what happens. I’m looking forward to it!

Justice League of America #2 – The big three at DC – Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman – are still putting the JLA back together. Last issue focused intently on Red Tornado. Who will it be this issue?! Check out the team Brad Meltzer is putting together; the JLA should be kicking all kinds of tail before long.

Ramayan 3392 AD #1 – The ancient Indian legend of Ramayan gets a facelift in this story in a new time period and an altered setting. All of the books from Virgin Comics (think Virgin Records, Virgin Airlines, etc.) have been excellent – highly reminiscent of the early offerings from CrossGen. Definitely give this a read!

Ultimate Spider-Man #100 – This book is getting weirder and weirder as people we thought were out of the picture are reemerging, and Spidey and MJ appear to be in a heap of trouble. What the heck is Bendis smoking?! Whatever it is, I hope he keeps it up, because this book has been really good and looks like it’s still going strong. Happy 100, Ultimate Spidey!

Ultimates 2 #12 – At long last, the next installment of the Ultimates! This book takes forever between issues, but it’s always worth it. What an awesome story it’s been so far! This issue picks up where the last issue left off, with the Ultimates trying to clean up after a hugely destructive battle that threatened to destroy the United States. You know you want to pick up this issue, the penultimate chapter of Ultimates 2, ASAP!


That’s all I’ve got time to jaw about today, but there are several other great looking titles shipping this week too. Head on down to the store and help us pay the rent!


See you at Haven!

Astonishing X-Men #17 – After the events of last issue, I’m glad this one doesn’t have a three month wait before showing up on the shelves! I’m itching to read this issue! What’s going on with the White Queen?! Wolverine, snap out of it! The Blue Moose? Better watch out for that…

Blade #1 – Tied in to the very successful (and surprisingly good) new TV show, this new ongoing series features everyone’s favorite vampire hunter doing what he does best: kicking vampire booty and leaving a cloud of ash in his wake. Give this one a look-see; if it’s anywhere near as good as the TV show, it’ll be well worth picking up!

Civil War #4 – At long last, the fourth issue! It’s only 2 months behind, people. Anyway, it’s coming in and it’s going to be H U G E. I recommend you pick it up immediately.

Civil War: Amazing Spider-Man – Decisions – Spider-Man has clearly been debating his role in this war ever since he revealed his identity to the world, and what he thought was a simple, cut-and-dried decision has turned out to be anything but. Now he’s got to reevaluate things and figure out what he wants to do…

Moon Knight #5 – Alright, I was wrong in my lead-in to the last issue. Moon Knight didn’t actually clean anyone else’s clock, but as the issue ended, his own clock was getting a pretty thorough going over. This issue, I guess we’ll see what the new and improved Moon Knight is really made of – so far, each issue of this book has been a tease; I’m really hoping the big payoff comes soon, because constantly being left hanging is starting to wear a little thin.

Union Jack #1 – Anyone who has been reading Captain America lately is going to want to read the new Union Jack series. It spins directly out of this most recent Cap story, and it will feature similar writing and artwork – in other words, it’s going to be really, really good. I can’t wait to check it out!

Wetworks #1 – Remember when Image first formed and changed the world of comic books? Well, Wetworks was supposed to be one of the flagship titles, and even managed to get an issue or two out before the creator was deported. Well, now he’s back and so is his book. This time around, it’s being published by DC/Wildstorm, and it’s coming out along with new versions of WildCATS, Gen 13, and Storm Watch. Is the world ready for Image: The Reimagining?!?!

X-Men: First Class #1 – That’s right; this 8-issue limited series is about the original band of merry mutants, and all indications are that this book will set a new benchmark for the X-titles. Remember when Beast was just a bulky looking, incredibly acrobatic guy? When Iceman looked more like a snow-man? When Cyclops was nicknamed Slim because he was really, really skinny? Well, this series is set back in those days, and it promises to be very, very, very good. If you’re an X-fan of any stripe, you’re going to want to read this!

As a bonus this week, here are some of the announcements Marvel just made at the Baltimore Comic Con this past weekend:

*Three words: World War Hulk…okay, here are a few more words….by Greg Pak and John Romita Jr.

*Spider-Man will once again don his black costume…Back in Black. ?!?!?!?!??!!?!?!??!?!?

*Spider-Man Reign – a four issue mini-series by Kaare Andrews, including the now infamous Spider-Man grave image.

*Thor will return in a new ongoing series…by J. Michael Straczynski.

*Marvel Illustrated line, the first of which will be The Last of the Mohicans.

*Annihilation spinoffs including a new Nova series, Heralds of Galactus, a Quasar limited series, and more!

*Alan Davis remains Marvel exclusive and will bring back Clan Destine.

*From the pages of Runaways come the Loners!

JOSS WHEDON TO WRITE RUNAWAYS!!!

You know this is an important post, because frankly, I hate it when people do the all-caps thing, especially with three (3) exclamation points afterwards. But this is Joss. In case any of you don't know, I heart Joss Whedon. I also heart a little comic called Runaways that not many people read, when they really should. Cuz it's awesome. The other day I was heartbroken to see that Brian K. Vaughn and Adrian Alphona were leaving the book, cuz quite bluntly I thought it was screwed. But then we get an announcement like this, and I hop up and perform Numfarr's Dance of Joy (that's an obscure reference to Angel, btw).
So let's take stock.
Joss now has the Wonder Woman movie, his horror-film script Goners, the next Serenity comic, the Buffy comic, Astonishing X-men through issue 24, plus an AXM Annual at the end. I want all of this stuff in my hands right now (especially Wonder Woman).
Joss Whedon is writing Runaways. *glee*
-Aerik
PS. It occurs to me after reading this that some of you might not know who Joss Whedon is. He's currently writing Astonishing X-men. He created Buffy the Vampire Slayer, its companion series Angel, and a little sci-fi show called Firefly that turned out to be the best television program ever made (imho). If interested, go to a movie rental place and find a movie called Serenity, in the sci-fi section. You will understand.

New Fantastic Four Cartoon?

From Haven News Correspondent, Dan Thompson:

The Fantastic Four cartoon started Saturday, 2 September. I wasn't impressed with the first episode. The series is made by a French animation studio but it is very much influenced by Japanese anime, especially in the character design. Johnny Storm, especially, looks like he stepped right out of an anime samurai movie. I found it very annoying. The plot was okay but not as satisfying as I'd hoped. As for the characterizations of the FF themselves, Reed Richards was amazingly wimpy through the whole episode and Sue Storm alternated between fainting and full-out, unreasoned attacks (in other words, a stereotypical emotional female). Sue's depiction is a step back thirty years for female comic book characters. The only member of the team that came out of the episode with any kind of dignity was Ben Grimm. I'll keep watching it for awhile to see if it improves, but my expectations are low.

Annihilation #2 – Since I’m not a big fan of the cosmic books in general, this pick might be something of a surprise to you. Fair enough. But here’s the deal: I read Annihilation #1, and it was a really good story! The build-up to Annihilation, with four different 4-issue mini-series was a bit much - I didn’t bother to muddle through any of that snooze-fest (covers were very pretty, I admit) – but the first ‘real’ issue of Annihilation surprised me by being well worth the read; so I’m recommending it here. Pick it up!

Batman: Gotham by Gaslight GN – This is a new printing of one of the best Elseworlds stories to ever come from DC. This Victorian era take on Batman is fantastic, and Mike Mignola knocks this one out of the park! If you’ve really been jonesing for an amazing Batman story, your prayers are answered. This is a must-read for any fan of great story-telling.

Devi #1 – If you missed the first issue of Devi the first time around, I’ve managed to snag a couple more copies. This book from Virgin Comics will remind you mightily of CrossGen; definitely give this a whirl; this issue is a promising start, story-wise, and the artwork is gorgeous – again, highly reminiscent of CrossGen. Check it out!

Fables #53 – As always, Fables makes the recommendation list. This book is consistently amazing, which is no mean feat in today’s comic marketplace. If you like great stories and interesting characters thrown together with a little humor, a lot of whimsy, and a ton of intrigue weaving through a fascinating meta-plot, then why aren’t you reading this book?!?! Everyone should be reading this!

Sam Noir: Samurai Detective #1 – Sometimes a book looks so off the wall, I have to order it. This is one of those times. The title alone makes me interested, and the artwork looks very Humberto Ramos to me. For what is bound to be an interesting book, if nothing else, check this one out and let me know what you think.

Ultimates 2 vol 1: Gods & Monsters TP – With the arrival of this Trade this week, we now have trades in stock for the entire Ultimates run. If you like superhero books with incredible art, awesome story twists, and knock-down, drag-out violence, this is a book you’re going to need to read. Highly recommended!

Wolverine Origins #6 – Welcome back, Omega Red! One of the best new villains of the ‘90s is back, and he’s a little perturbed with everyone’s favorite Canucklehead. Prepare for a hard-hitting throwdown, boys and girls; this is going to be one heck of a fight. Plus, seeing a little of the origin story of Omega Red won’t hurt any either…

See you at Haven!

American Splendor #1 – If you’ve read the autobiographical indie book before or if you’ve seen Harvey Pekar (the author/protagonist) portrayed by Paul Giamatti in the movie, then you’ve got an idea what this book is like and what it’s about. If not, well, it’s a weird, off-the-wall look at an odd man’s life. The stories aren’t usually great and the art work is certainly nothing to write home about, but there is something about this book that’s emotionally resonant. Give it a whirl if you’re in the mood for something guaranteed to be different.

GI Joe: Scarlett Declassified One-Shot – If you’ve enjoyed the previous Declassified books for the GI Joe characters, then you’ll want to be on board for this one as well; this ought to be a great peek into the background of one of the fan-favorite original Joes. You know I’ll be reading it!

Lone Ranger #1 – Normally, I might look at a book like this and never even consider ordering it, because it was based on a campy old TV western. Then, I might look at how they’re actually telling his story this time – the character of the Lone Ranger is getting a Dark Knight type of makeover, and this book is going to be good. I can’t provide an iron-clad guarantee, but I can tell you that I’m really looking forward to it – the John Cassaday cover isn’t hurting my enthusiasm at all either!

Marvel 1602: The Fantastick Four #1 – 1602 is back! Yeah, the last limited series was a disappointment, but this time, scribe Peter David (X-Factor, Hulk: The End, and a LOT more) is bringing us a variant tale of yesteryear, and it deals with the Fantastick Four, going up against Dr. Doom’s great-great-great-great-grandaddy: Count Otto von Doom. With Peter David writing it, there will be a lot of laughs, a lot of emotionally poignant moments, and a lot of action. Definitely give this one a look-see!

X-Men: Phoenix Warsong #1 – If you remember the excellent Phoenix Endsong limited series from a year or two back, this carries on events stemming from that book. This time around, the Phoenix entity is still looking for a host, and the Stepford Cuckoos, as they are affectionately known, are it. Can the Phoenix inhabit three people simultaneously? What about the two dead ones? The Phoenix has been known to bring people back from the dead a time or ten. Will all of the Five Who Are One be reunited, or what? This is one X-Book you won’t want to miss!!


See you at Haven!!
