I picked up a few regular comics as well as the free ones on Free Comic Book Day. After the previous post where young Nova asks some semi-relevant questions, I noticed that he's doing it again in Original Sin #0.



As the new kid on the block, I guess it's only fair that he gets to be the viewpoint character for expository information.

angelophile: (Death's Head surprised)

Since this hasn't been posted here yet and a few issues have passed, it falls to me to post some snippets from Avenging Spider-man #17, guest starring everyone's favourite mechanoid freelance peacekeeping agent.

That's Death's Head, in case you weren't paying attention, yes?

Yep, it turns out that Iron Man isn't the only place he's shown up lately. Except this version of the character might look a bit more... familiar to those who followed his original adventures under the pen of Simon Furman.

And Otto-Spider-man is called by The Fantastic Four to help out with a very important task.
Baby-sitting for the Future Foundation.

It goes about as well as you might expect.

The last of the four new Ultimate books launched this last week. by Nick Spencer and Paco Medina, it continues with the status quo post-Ultimatum where Magneto's attack has set human/mutant relations back to the dark ages.

It also builds on Loeb's Ultimate X book, using Ultimate Jean Grey Karen Grant and Wolverine's son, and also using the trio of Iceman, Johnny Storm and Kitty Pryde following on from Death of Spider-man.

It's pretty good and for the first time in a while, a comic shocked me. I'll put out a warning for implied gore and violence as well as familial violence.

"First to Last" is the current X-Men story that started in X-MEN GIANT SIZE and continues in the (current) adjective-less X-MEN series. X-MEN #12 came out on June 2, and even though X-MEN #13 came out June 15, it is still less than a month old. So I'm only posting 4 pages.

A rather ominous looking group called the Evolutionaries have decided its time for mutants to inherit the Earth. So the Evolutionaries want to kill all humans and seem to have the power to do so. The strange part? Scott suddenly remembers them from the days of the original team, but Warren and Bobby don't.

Meanwhile, 2.7 million years ago...

The Evolutionaries story arc begins here. A forgotten threat from the X-men's past returns to see how mutants have fared, and are not happy about the state of things. Especially the threats to said mutants.
No longer the new thing. )

A roundup of the X-Men news from C2E2 - not as much news as in some other places, but undoubtedly that's because of "Second Coming" still being only in the early stages.

Our series hits Part III, easily the longest segment, covering the "Mercury Rising" storyarc that ran from New X-Men #33-36. Laura and Julian take a break from saving each other (though they end up doing that too) to save someone else, and Julian tries to get her to go cold-turkey on killing bad guys. And Emma finally directs her righteous bitchiness at an wholly appropriate target.

Oh, and Laura has clearly been sitting in on Marvel's creator summits, enabling her to predict the future.

It's "Captain America Week" on Marvel.com, and, as you'd expect, current writer/genius Ed Brubaker is featured a lot; in an interview about the upcoming #600 and beyond, including some discussion of guest characters. Among those mentioned, "characters from the Young Avengers". I've been expecting/hoping for some of them to pop up in the main title at some point, since Brubaker has written a couple of team-ups between them and Bucky. So, since that got me thinking about them, here they are for the new s_d.

What century are you from? )
