Marvel’s Infinity – Where Do They Go From Here?

From Infinity #6

From Infinity #6

The other day I gave my review of the Marvel crossover event that just finished up this week: Infinity. They always try to have big implications from the crossover events, but Infinity is a little different. Because it was a natural point in the joint Avengers plots of writer Jonathan Hickman. So there are some larger implications, some impact on the larger Marvel Universe.

But as someone who was, and will continue, reading Jonathan Hickman’s Avengers and New Avengers, there are other implications. Unanswered questions, continuing plot line. Places that things are leading to. So, I will look at where things are going in Avengers, New Avengers, and then the larger Marvel Universe. Spoilers to come, comics fans!

My Review of Marvel Now!

Alternate Title: Who is this Brian Michael Bendis?

Brought to you by Marvel Now! and Brian Michael Bendis!

How do you do a reboot without doing a reboot? Time Travel. Brought to you by Marvel Now! and Brian Michael Bendis!

I have been exploring a lot of comics lately, and have been doing reviews here on the blog. Comics like Avengers, Uncanny Avengers, New Avengers, All New X-Men, Uncanny X-Men… and I keep running into one name. One creator.

Brian Michael Bendis.

When I saw his name randomly scroll past during the credits of the movie The Avengers, as a consultant, I knew I had to write a post a bit about him. And this made the most sense in terms of Marvel’s current marketing campaign, Marvel Now! So, note I have not necessarily done any research here, this is just my observations. Continue reading

Comics Review – Avengers by Jonathan Hickman

I have been hunting new comics lately. I started where I used to read comics: with the X-Men. I’ve read the new version of X-Men, All New X-Men and Uncanny X-Men, Uncanny X-Force and the Uncanny Avengers… and a bit further into the Avengers with the New Avengers.

The X-Men comics fill me with nostalgia, make me feel like I’m entering back into something from my youth. But the plots I’ve been reading in the Avengers titles have been better. In Uncanny Avengers, there’s a great combination of X-Men and Avengers villains going on, old ones and new ones, all mashing up dangerously. And there’s a lot hanging out there unknown. In New Avengers, the Marvel Illuminati are back, and fighting off the end of the universe… well, all universes. Ever.

So, Holly recently posted asking what comics she should read, and she got some great recommendations. One that caught my eye was The Manhattan Projects by Jonathan Hickman. I saw the name and went, wait a minute, I’m reading something by Jonathan Hickman. The New Avengers. So I looked: what else is he up to?

And I found the most recent volume of the Avengers. So I’ve given it a read, and I’ve found a new favorite. So let’s give it a look!

Comics Review: Uncanny X-Force and Uncanny Avengers

Uncanny X-Force Volume 2As I’ve mentioned in a few posts recently, I have been working on finding new comics to read. In part, because my summer has been so busy that comics are one of my main forms of entertainment. I love my Marvel iPad app, love new comics on Wednesday, and am loving what I have been reading working with our LitFlix so far.

I lost a few of the comics I got back into comics with – Uncanny X-Force, and X-Treme X-Men. It was the end of X-Treme X-Men that started my hunt for new comics, but today, let’s look at what I found by trying out the new Uncanny X-Force.
