A Comic Show 7.25.18: To Infinity Wars & Beach Blankets!

By | A Comic Show, Comics | No Comments

Hey Fandom, I’m back from SDCC and ready to talk new comics now with my pal Oral! Mr. & Mrs. X #1 is the married hero book we all wanted, right? Infinity Wars Prime #1 has an epic happening we didn’t spoil here. And Amazing Spider-man #2 has us all in for the Spencer/Ottley run. At DC we ticked closer on the Doomsday Clock, welcomed Bendis to Action Comics #1001, got Dark with the Justice League, and said F Batman with Teen Titans 20 and Lobo’s daughter. We ended on a downer commiserating about Saga’s year long intermission that starts now after the emotionally draining issue 54.

A Comic Show July 4th: Captain America’s Bday & Batman’s Wedding!

Hey Fandom! This week was a fun one, the craziest romp being Donny Cates’ Cosmic Ghost Rider #1 (his Death of The Inhumans killed as well). I also enjoyed Ta-Nehisi Coates’ Captain America #1. And Rosenberg’s Havok and the Outsiders, I mean Astonishing X-Men 13, is my new favorite X-Book. I love flawed heroes like Alex Summer and flashy ones like Dazzler!

DC had the heavy hitters of Batman #50, Catwoman #1, and Justice League #3. And I show some of Nick Derington’s exclusive covers: http://ultimatecomics.com/batman-50-e…

There are no spoilers for Batman #50 until the 9:38 mark of the video where I say several times to stop watching if you don’t want spoilers. Then I let everyone know why I think this issue has more payoff for an ongoing series than anything else on the stands!
