Avengers: Endgame Official Movie Special book review

Marvel Studios: Avengers: Endgame – The Official Movie Special
Hardcover
Edited by Jonathan Wilkins
Publisher: Titan Comics
Release date: April 30, 2019

What else can be said about the Marvel Cinematic Universe that hasn’t already? 11 years, 22 films, one universe. The most comprehensive and sprawling movie saga ever attempted has proved a critical and financial success and changed the film industry forever. At the very least it’s made us all sick of the word “universe” when discussing movies. Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame is mowing does box office records quicker than its heroes dispose of supervillains and it may soon become the most lucrative film of all time. If you’ve been in a hole and haven’t seen it, or like me you’ve seen it multiple times, a perfect companion piece just came your way in Titan Publishing’s Avengers: Endgame: The Official Movie Special available now in hardback. This behind the scenes look is perfect for MCU fans in your life.

Newbury & Hobbes: The Undying
Written by George Mann
Art by Dan Boultwood
Titan Comics
Release Date: April 30, 2019
Cover Price: $16.99

I had absolutely no idea who or what this would entail but the cover looked amazingly steampunk-ish so I decided to go for it. I cannot even begin to tell you how glad I am that I made that decision. Newbury & Hobbes: The Undying is apparently the first graphic novel in the franchise but there are a plethora of books to be had, as well.

Note to self: buy them all. Why, you ask? Well, let’s just say that this was more fun than a barrel of monkeys. Though, to be fair, I have never seen nor played with a barrel of monkeys.

Titan Comics
Release date: August 28, 2018

Yellow Submarine, the animated, trippy, visually eclectic and highly memorable film which starred The Beatles and is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, has been given the graphic novel treatment, and it’s a fun and colorful whimsical ride on paper as much its film counterpart.

Written and illustrated by Bill Morrison, founder of Bongo Comics, well known for its Simpsons adaptations, The Beatles Yellow Submarine takes the best elements of the original cinematic release and adds a vibrancy and clearly long-rooted passion for the intrinsic subject matter.

Executive Produced by Ben Aaronovitch
COVER A: Alice X. Zhang
COVER B: Photo – Will Brooks
​COVER C: Christopher Jones
COVER D: Simon Myers ​
Titan Comics
Release date: June 6, 2018
Cover price: $5.99

While the Seventh Doctor may have gotten an unfairly bad rap during his time in the TARDIS, the last Doctor of the “Classic” era returns this week in Titan Comics’s 3-issue miniseries, simply titled Doctor Who: The Seventh Doctor.

For those unfamiliar with actor Sylvester McCoy’s history in the role, he came along in the wake of a particularly tumultuous time in the television series as the previous Doctor (Colin Baker) failed to endear himself to audiences and ratings reach an all-time low. Controversy on-and-off the screen led to the series taking an 18-month hiatus before returning for one final season of Colin Baker episodes before McCoy assumed duties as the titular Time Lord.

And I know I am not alone as there are adaptations and re-issuings year after year, decade after decade.

So it brings me no end of pleasure to introduce you to The Michael Moorcock Library: Erekose – The Swords Of Heaven, The Flowers Of Hell.

These days it is zombie this and zombie that. But once upon a time, vampires were a far bigger deal and horror fans would pack movie theaters and buy the books like crazy. And I do not mean those sparkly little pansy vampires, either. They should never have existed! Anyway, in Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter #1 we get a glimpse of those fiends of yesteryear.

Letters by Rob Steen
Titan Comics
Release Date: September 6, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

In Penny Dreadful: The Awakening #5, it’s Hell on Earth, quite literally. In this brand new story arc, we watch as our dutiful protectors are vanquished, forcing them to retreat and formulate new plans to defeat the evil that has taken root in the body of one of humanity’s strongest defenders. I am a latecomer to this franchise, but I have quickly learned that it is a gloriously built world with a rich and inviting concept.
