The universe’s most powerful weapon must be brought down! But how can the devastating X-O Manowar be defeated? The time-displaced keeper of the X-O Manowar armor has declared Romania his kingdom, but the world isn’t going to let this invasion happen without a fight. As the Russians plan for a nuclear attack, the world’s most dangerous man, Toyo Harada puts together a ruthless team to take out the armor in Unity #1.

I am exhausted with massive crossover events in comics. Occasionally they deliver on their promises to be a game-changing event with spectacular storytelling, but most often they end up resetting the status quo of all the characters and telling a mediocre story.

Jupiter's Legacy 01Jupiter’s Legacy #1
Written by Mark Millar
Illustrated by Frank Quitely
Colored by Peter Doherty
Lettered by Peter Doherty
Covers by Frank Quitely, Bryan Hitch, Dave Johnson, Phil Noto, J. Scott Campbell, and Christian Ward
Image Comics
Release Date: April 24, 2013
Cover Price: $2.99

In issue #1 of Image Comics’ new series Jupiter’s Legacy, written by famed comic book creator Mark Millar and illustrated by Frank Quitely, we explore the idea that all nations, no matter how powerful or advanced they may be, will eventually be in need of heroes — saviors providing inspiration and a way out of poverty and destruction. Still, will this necessity always be enough in order to institute change?

Before the Great Depression, Sheldon was a big shot. He had everything: money, power, and a beautiful fiancée. Once the stock market crashed, he lost it all. One fateful night after that, Sheldon has a dream. An Island that no man has heard of in thousands of years speaks to him. It tells him to gather a specific group of people, find the island, and then bring back whatever they might discover there to serve as a saving grace for America. His dream is so real — so vivid — that he is compelled to act upon it.

GoD List Banner

Each and every week “Yes! Yes! Yes!” MK2Fac3 and “What’s Wrong With MK2Factor3?” Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of May 30, 2012. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

Ladies and gentlemen, I regret to inform you that this week is the fifth week of the month, and it’s the Wednesday after a holiday here in the United States. These factoids typically add up to the fact that there just aren’t going to be that many comics in your local stores this week. And while there won’t be too many single issues, there are some high profile issues, as well as plenty of great new collections coming out this week. Now, if you haven’t been following this list for the last couple of decades, we’ll also be having a section of this week’s The GoD List that also shines a nice light on some comics that you can check out that you may have missed… since, you know, the light week and all. With all of this information, please continue as we provide you with all the information that you need to be armed with when you step inside your local comic book shop (or online retailer).

Since it’s been a couple of weeks since the last major comic book character was threatened with getting killed off, Marvel announced today that the next major storyline for their Ultimate Universe, which will be called Death of Spider-Man.

Starting in February 2011 with Ultimate Spider-Man #153, writer Brian Michael Bendis will join forces with Mark Millar to tell what Bendis calls “a storyline unlike any other” and which Marvels touts “forever changes the Ultimate Comics Universe.” Ultimate Spider-Man #153 serves as a prologue for the storyline which will officially start in Ultimate Avengers vs. New Ultimates #1.

Millar stressed that this new Ultimate story event “is going to be big.”

“This is the biggest, boldest thing we’ve attempted in the ten years since we kicked this line off. This is the one thing that could be bigger than the creation of the Ultimate line and it’s great to be a part of it.

Comic Review: Captain America: Reborn #6

2009-01-27-caprebornCaptain America: Reborn #6
Written by Ed Brubaker
Penciled by Bryan Hitch
Inked by Array
Colored by Paul Mounts
Lettered by VC – Joe Caramagna
Cover by Bryan Hitch
Price: $3.99; Marvel Comics
Release date: January 27, 2010

Captain America has been one of my favorite series since Ed Brubaker took over several years ago.

We all knew that when the original Captain America, Steve Rogers, was killed at the end of the Civil War event, that he would be back at some point. Unfortunately, this series that is bringing Steve back to life has been plagued by delays, and had an extra issue added to complete the story.

So, was the wait for Issue #6 worth it? Well, I guess it depends on how much you HAD to have Steve Rogers back behind the shield. If you really wanted him back, than this may have lived up to the expectations, but for me, the whole series has been kind of underwhelming, and I’ll be glad to get back to the regular adventures of Bucky Barnes or Steve Rogers or whoever they want to call Cap.

Marvel Comics: Captain America Reborn #1Captain America: Reborn #1
Writer: Ed Brubaker
Penciler: Bryan Hitch and Butch Guice
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Release date: July 1, 2009

I should be more excited about this. I have loved Ed Brubaker’s run on Captain America since I picked up the first trade. It’s probably my favorite book that I’m currently reading on a monthly basis. So why is ‘underwhelmed’ the first word coming to mind? I’ll tell you why: it’s mostly that too much of Captain America: Reborn #1 is spent recapping info that was recapped two weeks ago in Captain America #600. So what we get is a second issue in a row of set-up; well-illustrated set-up, but set-up nonetheless.

This issue follows from where Issue #600 left off. Sharon Carter and the Falcon take the gun that killed Steve Rogers to Hank Pym for some investigation. They discuss Sharon’s memories from when she was under the Red Skull’s control and how she saw what could be one of Dr. Doom’s Time Platforms and that the Red Skull may have already brought Steve back. Meanwhile, the current Cap and the Black Widow try to track down the Time Platform so they can see what it really is. Unfortunately, the Platform is in the custody of Norman Osborne, so they have to break into a H.A.M.M.E.R. facility, where all does not go according to plan. Finally, we get a hint of what may be happening to Steve, and how he may be brought back.

The original Sentinel of Liberty Steve Rogers will resume his role as Captain America when he returns to the Marvel Universe just in time for Independence day, according to Marvel Comics veteran Senior Editor Tom Brevoort in a recent interview with UGO.

Rogers will make his debut in Reborn #1, the first issue of a new series written by ongoing Cap scribe Ed Brubaker with art from Bryan Hitch and a cover by Alex Ross. The series is reported to hit comic shops on July 1, Brevoort said, and it will reveal all of the ground work that was laid out years before.

It made headlines two years ago when Steve Rogers met his untimely death in Captain America #25 at the hands of former lover Sharon Carter during the Marvel Universe Civil War, preceding a massive Skrull invasion.
