HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.theotherbluth gets his wish with… A-Force #1 A while back I did a post regarding my picks for an all female “season” of Young Avengers, this book is about as close as I’ll get to seeing that dream come true, for now. This tie-in series looks like all kinds of fun, with the mightiest women of the Marvel universe teaming up for some serious heroing–that’s a verb right? A solid creative team, and a book with Shulkie, Miss America Chavez, and Medusa; need I say more?!?
Co-creator of Wolverine and artists/writer of such titles as The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man & Godzilla Herb Trimpe has passed away. Rest In Peace. More details via Facebook
In it’s opening issue, Brian Michael Bendis & Andrea Sorrentino’s Old Man Logan is a measured introduction to the creators take on the concept within the Secret Wars context that mostly works. Old Man Logan opens with a bang as we see Wolverine crash a group of human trafficker’s poker game to bloody results. Anybody familiar for Sorrentino’s Green Arrow work should already know how well he excels in that particulate type of visual story telling and his work here is as dynamic and innovative as what we’ve seen in the past from him. The best parts of Old Man Logan come where Sorrentino is playing to his strength is action and landscape illustrations and to his credit, Bendis seems to recognize this and gives the artist the freedom to create at his highest levels. With Bendis, much of the dialogue is tempered from what’s been his usual style, the voice he gives Wolverine feels true to the character while still having a little Clint Eastwood in Unforgiven for good measure. Those that are familiar with the original Old Man Logan should probably know that Unforgiven is the stories standard template and this version sticks to the script in that way. It feels like it could be happening immediately following the original series conclusion, for better or worst. Meanwhile, the stories conclusion promises a much different circumstance for the protagonist in the following issue and beyond. Old Man Logan is a beautifully illustrated re-introduction to this version of the character and the Marvel universe but it stands to reason that this issue of the comic hasn’t revealed much about itself that we didn’t already know. As if often the case with Bendis comics, it gives you exactly what you were expecting but promises more and ultimately, should be judged on that delivery.
