Hobbesy Waxes Wonder on Batman #75

Mike on Batman Universe

Okay, Axis, Here We Come!

5115602One of my favorite superhero teams of all time is The Invaders. Based on the All Winner’s Squad team that saw action in the Golden Age, the Invaders had the same members and first appeared in Avengers #71. They got their own book not long after and that was right around the time I started reading comics.

I loved watching Cap, Bucky, the original Human Torch, Toro, the Sub Mariner, Union Jack and Spitfire team up to fight the Nazis. I’ve always been a sucker for World War II heroes because I think the time period provides an adventurous backdrop for four color action.

The Invaders have seen several series over the years, including a current one set in present day with some flashbacks to WWII. Last Wednesday saw the release of an all new Invaders adventure, Captain America and the Invaders: Bahamas Triangle. It was far and away the best book from last week’s offerings. FDR guest stars, for Pete’s sake! How can it NOT be good!!

Go buy it, now!!!

Joe on Punisher #12

Abby is a Maneater

Doomsday Clock #10

Doomsday-Clock-10Well, our long national nightmare is finally over. After multiple delays, Doomsday Clock #10 is finally on the shelves. Was it worth the wait? Yes.

This issue sees Dr. Manhattan going all Billy Pilgrim as he jumps around in time. What does it all mean? I guess we will find out in issue #11 and issue #12.

The biggest treat of this ish is the appearance (at their meeting table, natch) of the Justice Society of America. Warm waves washed over my heart as I saw the original Green Lantern, Hour Man, the original Sandman, Golden Age Flash, Hawkman, The Atom, Spectre, and Dr. Fate planning their ongoing quest for justice.

Even though there are big waits between the new issues, it does give the reader a chance to go back and review previous installments. I feel like I’m fully enjoying this story!

 

Joe on Punisher: War of the Realms

Guardians of the Galaxy #5: Pick of the Week

MAR190884A lot of fan boys have been shedding their tears over the new team in Guardians of the Galaxy. It doesn’t feel like the movie, they whine and opine. Yet Donny Cates, Geoff Shaw, David Marquez are telling a great story even if it is “different” (whatever the fuck that means).

This latest ish finds Hela on the warpath with our heroes caught up in the middle. She wants Thanos alive again and will stop at nothing to achieve that goal.

And just what is going on with Gamora? Isn’t that always a question? Pick up GOTG #5 right now!!
