If you are a fan of the John Wick films then this comic was made especially for you! John Wick Volume 1 is a hardcover collection of the first five comics and a bonus gallery of variant covers.

But, most importantly, this is all about the beginning, the why, and the how. John Wick may be a man of extreme focus but he is also a man with a code and that code demands vengeance.

Kingsway West #1
Written by Greg Pak

Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: August 24, 2016
Cover Price: $3.99

I’m a long time fan of westerns. I grew up watching The Lone Ranger, Rawhide, Gunsmoke, and the like. The concept of man living so close to nature and constantly at odds with both his environment and other humans appealed to me for some reason. Later, my attention turned to fantasy novels and role-playing games but the love of a good story set in the Old West was always there. So when someone comes along and mixes the two, I’m always down for a good a read. Kingsway West #1 is most definitely trying its best to find a place in my heart.

Read on and I’ll tell you why!

Kickstarter Secrets

I’m a regular supporter of campaigns on Kickstarter, as you may know. I support it financially as a backer, just like many of you do, and I try to shine a little light on many of them here at Geeks of Doom through Kickstarter Spotlight articles such as this one. But this little crowdfunding campaign is different from most.

The whole purpose of Kickstarter Secrets is to help other campaigns raise more money and create more enthusiasm with backers. As a company, Kickstarter helps fund a lot of various ideas, but many of the failed campaigns could have done better under different circumstances. And that’s what this campaign is all about!

Now we see his mission in the future is to protect the people, which he does in this issue by going to a town full of slaves. Always trying to do the right thing.

Greg Pak and Jae Lee On New ‘Batman/Superman’ Series

Batman/Superman

Greg Pak is no stranger to comics, writing a whole swath of them for Marvel, including such modern favorites as Planet Hulk and Incredible Hercules. The much beloved writer has jumped the aisle and is now writing for DC Comics and his first series has been announced. As first announced at USA Today’s website, Pak will be working on the new volume of Batman/Superman along with artist Jae Lee. The series launches in June 2013.

The series will be set in the early days of DC’s New 52 universe, back when Batman didn’t have anyone backing him up, and back when Superman was running around in jeans and a t-shirt. The first story will feature the pair fighting a powerful threat as well as each other. From the sound of things, this will not be the buddy-buddy Batman and Superman relationship that readers may be used to.

Mutants Are Trying To Kill Us All Again In Marvel’s ‘Xtermination’

xtermination banner

Marvel Comics is all about the Avengers and the X-Men these days. The thing is the Avengers books have been pretty good for quite some time. That can’t be said for the X-Men books outside of Joss Whedon’s somewhat convoluted but still entertaining run on Astonishing X-Men. Lately though the Marvel Now! resets of the X books have been fairly solid books. So of course with that success, it’s time for an event!

Xtermination follows Nightcrawler as he attempts to return to his home world even if it means the destruction of Earth. This event comes from creators David Lapham, Marjorie Liu, Greg Pak, and artist David Lopez and it brings together X-Men from Astonishing X-Men, Age of Apocalypse, and the ridiculously titled X-Treme X-Men.

Marvel promises a major throw-down between Nightcrawler and Wolverine in this event. We have some images from Xtermination #1 set to hit brick and mortar and digital stores in March, so check them out here below.

Colors by Jessica Kholinne

Covers by Julian Totino Tedesco and Salvador LaRrocca with Marte Garcia
Marvel Comics
Release Date: July 25, 2012
Cover Price: $2.99

After reading X-Treme X-Men #1, I found myself doing something I haven’t done in years….actually CARING about the X-Men. Although I’m a huge fan of “The Wolverine,” the X-Men as a whole, seems to bore me. I haven’t really cared about them since the late 80s/early 90s when it was Beast, Angel, Cyclops, Marvel Girl, and Iceman. I’ve tried a bunch of differnt times to get back into them, almost every reboot or restart, to fail time and time again…until now.

Writer Greg Pak writes a VERY entertaining first issue, actually a very entertaining issue in general, here putting a spin on the X-Men team that we haven’t quite gotten before. A team of X-Men from a different dimension are sent on a mission by a Charles Xavier floating head to destroy 10 different Charles Xaviers across the multiverse.
