Without further ado, (I got it right on the first try this time, Gorby! MARVEL WOLVERINE: FIRST CUTS There are 11 different Wolverine books scheduled to come out this month. and the Amazing Spider-Man, who, I’m assuming, won’t be in the new movie.Which means almost half of what Marvel is putting out into the world of trade paperbacks feature the adamantium clawed, cigar chomping, beer swilling, indestructible mutant, Logan. Most of the hardcores will all ready have this, but if you’re one of the five people who don’t know anything about Wolverine then I guess go buy this book!As for what the book is about…well, try this on for size.Killing the marvel universe wasn’t enough because Deadpool is gunning for major literary characters now.Tom Sawyer, Little Women, Scrooge, Gulliver, Sherlock Holmes and more are sliced, diced, shot, stabbed and maimed all for our sick pleasure. I’ve only read the first Volume, but I quite enjoyed it.Like I said, I don’t think this is canon by any means, but it could be fun and we all need a little fun sometimes. I mentioned last month how I liked the idea of releasing two volumes simultaneously and I stand by that. 1: Born To Kill hits stands the same day in paperback format. 6: WILD GAME For some reason I thought Sweet Tooth was done after Vol. On paper it sounds kind of ho-hum: post-apocalyptic world, boy who kind of looks like a deer so I started thinking like Road Warrior meets A Boy And His Dog, but it’s really much better then that. The guys really good at getting genuine emotion, humor and a decent helping of action and making all of it feel totally right. 18: WHAT COMES AFTER Oh Negan, what have you gotten yourself in to…?
I like the idea of a guy who’s all about viruses trying to come up with one that will over ride Logan’s healing ability. And he’s not off to the greatest start with his new X-Force.
Anyone who owns volumes 1 through 9 probably don’t need to bother, but anyone who doesn’t should take note as each book contains roughly two volumes at a discounted price. Harley Quinn: Night And Day At first I thought this was new Harley Quinn stuff, like New 52 new, (sheesh! This is the second volume of Harley’s solo adventures to be collected in trade format. This contains two arcs, one where Harley decides to go good, (long before her Gotham City Siren days), and the other has her battling Croc. Hands down one of my favorite ongoing series of all time.
There’s really not a whole lot that needs to be said about this other then: go and get it! WOMANTHOLOGY: SPACE (HC) I was going to write about this last month, but it was slightly delayed.
The first volume of this series revolved around the word Heroic and, like this volume, profits from the book go to charity. Anyone familiar with LW&C will know the basic story all ready: travelling samurai has a child with him to he must keep safe while killing people and defending his honor.
The 2100 version has the samurai played by an android and the cub, Daisy Ogami, is somehow the salvation of a dying future. I read that it was one of the biggest hits in the comic book industry for 2012 and one of the most successful “all-ages” comic books ever. I watched some of the show and I didn’t get why it was so popular.
