Episode #169 – Thanks for Nothingiving

Posted on 27 November 2012 by admin

Fight for Comics Episode #169 - Thanks for Nothingiving

The Wednesday Warriors share their thanks for nothing in the aftermath of Thanksgiving. Sean Leslie finds the miracles that Lush’s bath bombs possess. The Warriors also welcome the heroes of our community, cows, in comic book form that is sure to entertain. Amazing Spider-Man #698 knocks the Warriors over in shock and gives them a feeling of Freaky Friday déjà vu as they debate when the events actually took place. And if all that wasn’t enough, Bryton also gives an early review of Ed Bruaker’s new original graphic novel, Scene of the Crime, drawn by his Gotham Central artists, Michael Lark and Sean Phillips.

Posted on 04 April 2012 by admin

Fight for Comics Episode #137 - Emerald City Comicon Wrap-up Sean Leslie is back after mysteriously getting the plague during last week’s episode. But the other warriors must have caught what he had as Sean is a lone warrior for this week’s episode. He is joined by Wes Warren and Jordan Waterman and they recap the highlights of Emerald City Comicon (which they all attended). merald City Comicon takes place in Seattle each year and much fun was had by all. They talk about the amazing art they were able to get their hands on (make sure you watch the image feed) and find out if they were able to get the top prize at the con, the limited Walking Dead Compendium Volume One hardcover. Trevor Rimmasch also joins to tell us what he has been reading (and thank heavens it is not Robocop). All this and the proper way to say The Strange Talents of Luther Strode in the latest edition of Fight for Comics.

Avenger Assemble #1

Posted on 20 March 2012 by Josh

Avengers Assemble 1

Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Pencils: Mark Bagley
Inks: Danny Miki
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Price: $3.99

 

I understand the reason for existence of Avengers Assemble.  After all, the Avengers movie is going to be the biggest superhero movie of the year so why not launch a new book to try and get some more interest in the Avengers and possibly pull in some new readers? You can maximize their exposure by having  it be the same roster that will show up in the feature film. Sadly, I cannot believe that with such a big launch, it’s a sub-par effort right out of the gate.

Brian Bendis has had the reigns of the Avengers franchise for some time now. Currently, he’s working on 3 Avengers titles and I guess that when you’ve probably written all you can about these characters, you have some duds here and there. This issue is exactly that. A book that doesn’t make a lot of sense and has some of the most uninteresting villains featured in the Zodiac, which is a group of 12 made up of each of the symbols of the zodiac. Thankfully, the one good thing is that it’s 12 superhumans and not just 12 guys in costumes for their sign. With a book that is clearly based on the soon to be summer blockbuster, why not go with something a bit more recognizable. The involvement of the Hulk seems to not fit with what is going on in Jason Aaron’s Hulk title. Are we working with dumb brute Hulk? That certainly doesn’t match what Aaron is doing with the Hulk. It’s the little inconsistencies like that which take the fun out of books like this.

The art is by Mark Bagley, who has worked with Brian Bendis on Ultimate Spider-Man. If you are a fan of his art, then it’s the same thing as with any other book. Bagley’s art is a good match for the action of the story.  His art doesn’t really blow anyone away, but he’s consistent and his style is perfect for super heroes.

This book does seem more in the all-ages vein. While I do like the darker tones of the more sophisticated material, it’s good that there’s material like this too. Marvel has struggled to keep an all-ages line that has seen various reboots over the years. This is a title in the current Marvel continuity and it’s a good title for younger kids to pick up. One can hope that the story works out a bit better in the next issue because the first issue isn’t anything spectacular and certainly not up to par with some of the other Avengers stories that Bendis has written.
