November 4, 2008

I don’t know what to say, I saw that title on newsarama and my heart sank. All three are good titles and especially Tony Bedards Birds Of Prey, yes there is probably a re-boot coming up. But what gives?

Comic of the Week

November 3, 2008

There were so many comics running for Comic of the week, But Thor 12 took the title. JMS is one of my favourite writers and one of the few reasons that I am still with Marvel. Yes i know that cover is from the American Thor 12 but it is a nice cover. Now to the meat of it, why is this comic of the week. Well for one reason and one reason only. Thor was one of Captain America’s closest friends, Thor goes to Cap’s grave and using Mjolnir envokes Steve’s vow, that nothing not even death shall seperate us if the call is answered, and with a mighty roar of “Avengers Assemble” the shade of Cap is brought from the lands of the dead. Thor asks Cap does he want revenge and if so Thor will be the instrument of his revenge. Cap tells Thor no and explains what the fight was about, it was never about Steve Rogers or Captain America it was about what America meant and the errosion of that meaning. And that Steve/ Cap just wanted peace. So in one of the most touching moments in comics, Thor gives him his moments peace and short circuits all electrical devices capable of transmission, TV,Radio,Internet for exactly 60 seconds. It was a true dust moment I can tell ya

Comic Guru

November 3, 2008

In 2009, a crack comic shop was sent to whitchurch by the taxman,cardiff council, the Bank and Diamond for a crime they didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security hospital  to the Cardiff  underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you need a comic, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire… The Comic Guru

now i know thats plagarising the A team, but a few points if the US military couldn’t find the A Team what hope does your average comic fan have of finding the Guru. Cmon we can just about find back issues in his shop or the cheepest pint
