S.H.I.E.L.D. #6

S.H.I.E.L.D. #6 - Comic of the Day
Something awesome happened...but what?
Maybe I like this comic of the day, and series so far, because I believe I should. Many comic book websites I follow, such as iFanboy.com, have touted S.H.I.E.L.D. #6 as their comic book "Pick of the Week," and to be honest, at first read I would agree. What I mean to say is that if I had to choose the "Pick of the Week" right as I finished this issue, I would choose it. Yet, if I had the day to think about S.H.I.E.L.D. #6, I may actually determine that it was good in the moment, but it isn't sticking with me in a positive way.

I feel dumb when thinking about this issue. I am not all that sure what happened or why it happened, but it seemed exciting at the time. I think my brain and eyes caught the name Leonardo da Vinci, Issac Newton, Tesla, Stark, Richards and Michelangelo and I thought to myself, "Hey! I've heard of these names before!" I felt smart for knowing names learned in grade school and I equated that to being in on an adventure for intellectuals...which everyone would like to think they are.

The reality is that I was fooling myself. Me is know smarted. The point of the story was either over my head, or it wasn't filled with a very good story, rather, it was filled with high-culture names which make it seem like a intellectually deep story. I like to think that I am smart enough to know when I am confused with a story and it is over my head, so I believe that Jonathan Hickman's S.H.I.E.L.D. #6 is probably a very well done book. It just didn't leave me with any substance or closure...something I felt the last issue of the arc should have.

Strange Tales II #1 (Vol. 2)

Strange Tales II #1 - Comic of the Day
Rafael Grampá's cover has a "fwt" on it.
I love this concept. Having cartoonist and writers from other fields do short 1 to 8 page stories, using the Marvel characters, is a fun way to tell tales that would never be seen in actual continuity. These are the goofy tales that pop into our head such as a fat Wolverine who is love sick or the Watcher, Uatu, experiencing life through by way of booze. Thanks to Strange Tales II #1, some of the wacky stories we wished to see come to life.

II Tales Stood Out to Me

1. The amazing cover artist Rafael Grampá created a Strange Tales II story starring Wolverine where he is in a "mutant wrestler" league. The story has the old vet fighting Deadpool's son: a cocky young buck who fights in the same style of his father. Wolverine allows the young rook' to assault him and stab him through with many swords and blades. The 8 page tale is very bloody and graphic. Plus, it has a very 80's feel to it which pulls from an era of graphic action in both movies and comics.

Throughout the battle with Deadpool's boy, Wolverine is thinking of a letter, from a love, he received in his locker before the fight. After the battle is over, Wolverine sits alone and thinks of his lover who has left him and simple drinks a beer and realizes he lot in a sad life. The story is nice, but the art is wonderful. Highly detailed and uniquely designed characters at times have a Ren and Stimpy close-up look to the: gritty and slightly grotesque. It's beautiful.

2. The other story, in the comic of the day, that stood out to me was a tale by Shannon Wheeler which basically was a "what if the Red Skull turned into a decent man" story. It seemed like such an odd choice of characters to turn into a changed man because unlike a villain like Loki or Magneto who are affiliated to fictional associations (being a God and being an evil mutant), the Red Skull was a Nazi leader. It's not like he was a reluctant Nazi leader or was just following orders...he was a freak'n monster. It actually seemed like it could be a little offensive, and I wonder if Marvel received any complaints or letters about the story. But, with that said, it was just a silly tale that was in the context of a book with silly strange tales, too.

Did anyone else read this story in Strange Tales II #1 and think the same thing?

Invincible #60

Invincible #60 - Comic of the Day
The amazing Invincible #60 fold-out cover featuring the Image universe.
For whatever reason I only read Robert Kirkman comic books in collected editions. When I read the Walking Dead it was collected in a first volume hardcover. When I read Haunt it was collected in the first trade paper back. And as I continue to read Invincible (my favorite title of the 3 mentioned) I only read the hardcover collections which include about 10 issues each.

Reading the HC Invincibles is an amazing experience. Robert Kirkman has created a comic book which build reads like a Dan Brown novel in that every issue (chapter, in Brown's novels) leaves you wanting more from the following issue. Robert Kirkman isn't just writing about events in a superhero's life, he is writing about a superhero's life itself: an ever evolving and growing with experience life. These 10 issue books give fans the ability to dedicate a whole day to a story and character which entertains through (at times) non stop action, violence and emotional family issues. But what happens when the day is over and the reader is done with the latest hardcover edition?

Some readers begin to collect the individuals because they simply can not wait to read more Invincible. I, however, wait for the next hardcover, and that...has been horrible! It took nearly a year for the next hardcover edition to be released and an unfortunate case of memory loss hits me as open-up the edition and begin to read Invincible #60.

The comic of the day opens with Invincible walking out of some desert where he had smashed in the evil scientist guy's head. Well, the dude lives and all of a sudden (month's later according to the comic's narration) a ton of Invincibles from other dimensions are attacking the Image universe: smashed face to alternate universe Invincible onslaught in a matter of a couple of pages. I was so confused and the bombardment of action gave my brain no time to rest. It was awesome!

The issue is a bit of an Image event because it features some classic Image characters for the first time in the Invincible title. Spawn, Witchblade, Pitt and more show-up and both do some damage and get messed-up. Kirkman respects the power of the other characters while still displaying the might of Invincible.

If you've never read Invincible, do yourself a favor and at least pick up the first hardcover edition. I guarantee you'll be picking up the next 5, and thanking me one week later after your mind keeps you awake at night unable to sleep due to welcomed Invincible overload.

Doom 2099 #5

Doom 2099 #5 - Comic of the Day
Of course the future baddy has a mo-hawk.
I swear this is the last Doom 2099 post for awhile. I just had to briefly speak about something I have been noticing in the Doom 2099 books, and especially in Doom 2099 #5. So here it is...

Within the first couple of pages in the comic of the day a Doom support tells Doom, "This is the 21st century Doom." This has been said to Doom several times. The people saying it are implying that Doom is out of touch with the current times, but it drives me crazy to no end because...

  1. Doom is in fact from the 20th century...but just barely! Doom 2099 draws Doom from the current time-line which is on the year (when the comic book was printed) 1993. Doom lived 7 years away from the 21st century. That isn't very far.
  2. The people who are telling Doom that it's the "21st century" are just barely in the 21st century. Why would they reference a century they are on the edge of? It is practically the 22nd century. Just say the 22nd century. It's like when your birthday is tomorrow and someone you don't know asks you how old you are today. Just say how old you will be tomorrow. They don't know you. Who cares?!
Listen people in the year 2099...no one is impressed. We get it, your tech is more advanced, yet everyone dresses like it is the 80's again. If Doom says something you think is dated don't give him your snarky opinion. If he wants your opinion, he'll take his 20th century dick out your mouth.

Doom 2099 #4

Doom 2099 #4 - Comic of the Day
Why does he say Tiger Wylde...the first?
Well of course Doom won.

We last left Doom about to fight Tiger Wylde, a man who eviscerated him in Doom 2099 #1, and after reading Doom 2099 #4 we leave the comic of the day with only one metal clad man standing: Doom...of course. Making good use of foreshadowing in the past issue, John Francis Moore (Francis is truly a great middle name) uses Doom's new ability to phase his body through anything to defeat his foe. Doom suckers Wylde into a fight to distract him into being blown to hell by a massive explosion...which Doom phases through.

Doom is always so theatrical. In Doom 2099 #4, Doom literally floats up and out of the flames and broken down mountain, cape floating behind, and announces, "I am Risen!" Who does that?

So now Doom controls Latveria once again. But his sights have been set on much more. He says he does not want to conquer the world, rather, Doom wants to become the world's architect: Mr. Doom Vandelay.

Doom 2099 #3

Doom 2099 #3 - Comic of the Day
Giant Doom hates buildings w/ sweet logos.
I'm kind of obsessed with this book right now. Three Doom 2099 posts over the course of the last week makes me think I should have labeled this week Doom 2099 week. I just did not know I'd be into it.

Doom 2099 #3 doesn't really have a whole lot going on. The main thing that readers get here are more scenes with some rich bad guy who is so afraid of germs that he travels around in a plastic wrap suit. The plastic is literally skin tight on his face. In a book where one guy wears a metal mask (Doom), and another guy's face resembles a metal tiger's face (Tiger Wylde), the random mysophobe (one who has a fear of germs) is the freak.

The comic of the day bridges the first storyline of Doom trying to take out Tiger Wylde (to take back control of Latveria) to the actual confrontation between Doom and Wylde. The last panel has Wylde riding in on his futuristic flying war vehicles ready to cave in Doom's underground hideout. Doom is sure to come out and get all Tiger-uppercut on Wylde's ass, but that will have to wait until the next issue...and tomorrow's post.

Oh, and guess what is included in every Doom 2099 book so far. Here's a hint: they appear in many books in the late 80's to early 90's starting about a couple of pages into the comic book. If you guessed those little hole-like tears in the paper (usually in threes) at the bottom of the pages...you're correct! Fuck those tears! When those little tears show-up in a comic I love, I always pause for a moment, look into the distance and hear Eric Clapton's "Tears in Heaven" in my head.

Doom 2099 #2

Doom 2099 #2 - Comic of the Day
Bubble attack level 1...take that bad guys!
So, I kept reading...

The fun in any story involving Doom seems to root in his arrogance. In Doom 2099, Doom has traveled to a future where he is not known by his fellow country men (and women), let alone worshiped as he feels he should be. His castle is in shambles and he has essentially turned into the Zachary Taylor of Latveria (a forgotten leader of a great nation), yet he still acts like tough shit and walks around giving orders to people who helped him when he was torn-up by the villain in Doom 2099, Tiger Wylde (yeah, he looks kind of like a tiger). Doom consults nobody and does whatever he wants. At one point in Doom 2099 #2 a fellow country woman who helped Doom when he was injured confronts Doom. She complains that she was left out of the loop on important decisions (in regards to reclaiming Latveria), and Doom just brushes her off and says he has more pressing matters to attend to. Doom then just takes a walk to see his crumbled castle.

The arrogance and cockiness is fun to witness, but what makes Doom books good reads are the slight moments of compassion or humanity. In the comic of the day, you get the sense that though Doom may want to rule Latveria for selfish reasons he still genuinely cares for his people. He still recalls when he was a young nobody in Latveria when an evil dictator ruled. His father was killed and his people were forced from their homes, and Doom still remembers.

Doom 2099 has me interested in the showdown between Doom and Tiger Wylde...especially after the last page in Doom 2099 #2 when Doom emerges from the flames of a plane-crash and screams, "Tell Tiger Wylde... that Doom has returned... and war is declared!"

Heroes for Hire #3 (Vol. 3)

Heroes for Hire #3 - Comic of the Day
Rock, paper, scissors...gun!? Cheater!
I figured it out. I just don't like Paladin.

Paladin is an on again off again superhero. In some comic books he is working for his own best interests and being a general jerk. Back during Civil War he tried to trick Captain America and capture him for the side of the government and in the future (according to the date on this post), in the Amazing Spider-Man #656, he makes a snide remark to Spider-Man which causes the web-head to lose his web-mind and get physical with Paladin. Normally, Spidey wouldn't hurt a super-fly, but Paladin is a super-jerk.

Another thing that can't be overlooked is Paladins uniform. He is wearing a padded purple suit with an old school hockey helmet. He is just a guy with a lot of body armor...and not the cool kind that's shaped like a skull on his chest. The purple hatred may actually root in the fact that I do not care for the L.A. Lakers who sport purple while playing a sport. That's just wrong! As a young boy I was trained to not like pink and purple, and to love sports. They should never be combined! Thinking about it a little more in depth, my anger towards purple may also come from the day the purple people eater, Grimace, ate my grandmother on a trip to McDonald's as a child. I had to walk home like 2 miles. That sucked!

In the end Paladin seems to be a poor-man's Hawkeye (also in purple), who is a poor-man's Captain America. Cap is the upper-class hero. Hawkeye is the middle-class guy. And Paladin is just some lower-class poor bum!

I think I could get into the comic of the day,  Heroes for Hire #3, and the earlier issues for that matter, I just gotta have more cowbell. Oh, and less Paladin.

Wolverine #5.1

Wolverine #5.1 - Comic of the Day
Wolverine #5.1 makes a great bookmark!
Based on the killer Wolverine #5.1 promotional bookmark, which marvel released about a month ago and I have been using in my Michael Cain autobiography The Elephant to Hollywood (recommended), I imagined that the Jefte Palo one-shot would thoroughly please me. Unfortunately, my expectations may have been set a little too high.

Wolverine Wednesdays - Wolverine #5.1

Jefte Palo put together an eye opening mini series this past year when he worked with Fred Van Lente on Taskmaster. His version of Tasky had a playful edge to him which humanized his character. While the playful edge definitely carried over in the comic of the day through depictions of Marvel heroes at a surprise party for Wolverine, something was still lacking. If I had to take a stab at what it was I would say the noses.

It seemed like the noses on ever face were very awkward. Their presence seemed unsure. It was as if someone stole the characters noses and when that person returned the noses, the thief returned thumbs instead. We can all understand how that can happen. Who's grandfather hasn't stolen their nose at one point in their life?

Every panel that contained noses started bugging me and made me wonder what went wrong. The answer seems quite simple, actually. In the Taskmaster series, Palo did not draw many noses. Most of the characters wore masks that did not include noses, such as Taskmaster and the multiple goofy villains he fought. With a little more than just a mini series to practice on, I'm sure Palo will improve on the human horn and I can go right on anticipating his next projects.

Doom 2099 #1

Doom 2099 #1 - Comic of the Day
Doom 2099 sports a sweet Donatello belt.
Along with those 10 issues for $10 of Ghost Rider 2099 I bought recently, I also purchased 26 issues for $20 of Doom 2099. The reason for that purchase was because I heard it was the best of the 2099 books (though that may not be saying much) and it also featured some of the first Warren Ellis Marvel comic books (issues #25 and #26).

First off, you need to do a double take at the cover. At first glance it's easy to miss; however, upon further examination you may notice that the two "O's" in "DOOM" have eye slits for the centers which resemble Doom's actual eye slits. The inner "O" is also red, as you will notice Doom's eyes are on the cover, as well. Oh, and after reading the keyword "eye slits" now three times, don't you feel a little dirty?

After reading the comic of the day, it is pretty clear why Doom 2099 seems to be the consensus pick for "best of 2099 books." Of all the 2099 comic books Doom 2099 is the only comic to include the original character. The Dr. Doom, in Doom 2099, is the Dr. Doom from current (at the time) continuity who had traveled forward in time further than he meant to go. The other 2099 comic books included new versions of old characters such as Spider-Man, Ghost Rider and the Punisher. Readers all ready know this arrogant, need for control, Doom and can accept the character quickly while they move onto understanding the story. It's really a great way of getting out of creating a new character, which can be difficult to do. A point which leads us back to Stan Lee's: Ravage 2099.

Ghost Rider 2099 #1

Ghost Rider 2099 #1 - Comic of the Day
In my senior photo I had to wear a tux!
For $10, I bought Ghost Rider 2099 #1 to issue #10. I was sold on the pack when I found out that the early issues of Ghost Rider 2099 feature the early art of Chris Bachalo. I had recently gone back and looked at some old Kev Walker Marvel art and was very interested to see a top artist's work back when it was a bit more raw. With Ghost Rider 2099 #1, you are getting the glimpses into a yet to be perfected style which is definitively Chris Bachalo.

The pencils are very rough and have been drowned a bit in pools of ink and excess ink-dust (slight flecks of ink all over the panel); however, there are a few intense elaborate panels which have become some what of a Bachalo signature. His Ghost Rider 2099 appears to be a mix of what the standard Ghost Rider looks like along with a biker-gear clad Terminator robot. Like if the Terminator didn't have a fake human skin, yet still wore a black leather jacket. Oh, and his head was constantly on fire.

Bachalo's cover is very menacing. The skull-like robotic head of Ghost Rider 2099 has an evil smirk which sets the tone for the character's attitude. Ghost Rider 2099 #1 is of course set in the future 2099 universe Marvel dabbled in in the early 90's. Rather than being the incarnation of a demon of vengeance, in the comic of the day he is revealed to be a Ghost Rider for a conscious cyber-stream of data which is created to protect man-kind from itself and from accidentally wiping out all the data man-kind have collected. He's like a demon created by the internet itself. Like Mark Zuckerberg or Rebecca Black. Zing!

In all seriousness, Rebecca Black is actually pretty amazing in the sense that her name now comes up on Google just by typing the letter "R" in the search field. Joke as everyone will, her music is in your head setting it ablaze with both hate and vengeance. Remind you of anyone?

Power Girl #7

Power Girl #7 - Comic of the Day
Power Girl #7 is a replica of Superman #281
The discovery of Power Girl #7 (and the following issue, Power Girl #8) has changed my life forever. I am now in the know. Not only do I know of DC's Vartox, but I have also been opened-up to the world with Zardoz, starring Sean Connery.


Vartox is a DC character which first appeared in Superman #281 and is based on the appearance of Sean Connery's Zed character from the film Zardoz. From what I could best make out, after watching Zardoz on Netflix instant watch, is that Zardoz is a movie based on the structure of control, both religious (through the use of Gods) and social. Zed (Connery) discovers one level of "God" control after he reads "The Wizard of OZ."

The Vartox character which appears in Power Girl #7 does take some things with him from the movie into the comic of the day: his handlebar mustache, the flying rock head ship, and his skimpy outfit. Besides those things, Vartox is a different person. He is an immortal, super-powered leader of his planet who has come to Earth in search of a mate which will help him repopulate his planet...which has been attacked with a contraception bomb. Yeah, possibly the best set-up for a comic book ever.

Vartox is written as an arrogant mocho man who does not understand rejection. His ridiculous third person dialog, written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray, is equaled by Amanda Conner's panel perfect facial reactions by Power Girl and Vartox. Conner's panel in which Vartox stops Power Girl from speaking with his index finger is exceptionally enjoyable.

Power Girl #7, and Power Girl #8 for that matter, should not go unread and forgotten in time much the same way Zardoz has in the realm of film. The characters populating these forms of entertainment are amazingly out-there and forever memorable. You'll thank me.

SuperPatriot #1

SuperPatriot #1 - Comic of the Day
It's not the size of the star, it's how you use it
I never liked early Image comic books. Image started out with some great artists, but their writing talent was lacking big time. When I was a child and Spawn #1 came out I bought it up just like millions of others, but I didn't purchase another Image comic book until 10 plus years later. After receiving a bunch of old Image comic books from my friend's childhood collection...I can understand why it took me so long to be interested in another Image comic book.

Exhibit A - SuperPatriot #1

Can we all agree that the name alone makes us groan? There can't be many more modern characters with names that pander to an audience more than SuperPatriot. "Super", huh? Oh, like super-powers or super-human or super-hero. Okay, the first part establishes we are dealing with no ordinary Joe. And the second part? Patriot. Well played. Let's get those USA loving buyers' attention. Mom and Dad, this here is a safe one for the kids. It's about a patriot!

The cover further proves what an awesome patriot SuperPatriot is by the way he is shooting a gun (while doing a flip) and wearing an American flag-like costume which features a star right on his ball sack. Both of his weapons are American. F*** Yeah!

The inside of the issue is no better. The comic of the day is about figuring out how to control this government made agent. SuperPatriot is suffering from mistaking every super (there's that word again) character to be the Savage Dragon. The Savage Dragon is a popular Image character which is thrown in to help boost sales, I'm sure. Why SuperPatriot is seeing others as the Savage Dragon is unknown in SuperPatriot #1, and not compelling enough to make me want to read SuperPatriot #2.

I'll have to chalk this up as yet another mystery which will go unsolved. Damn.

Batman Beyond #2

Batman Beyond #2 - Comic of the Day
Geez, Micron. Share the cover once in a while.
Watching Batman, future or present, beat up the Justice League is always a nice treat for Bat-fans, but this comic of the day won me over not because of Batman giving the Justice League the boot, but because of how the future version of the Atom, Micron, gave Batman the boot, literally!

While Batman (Terry McGinnis, Batman's future young successor) is trying to systematically neutralize the Justice League, he loses track of the Micron and eventually finds the miniaturized fella on his shoulder. Before Batman can react Micron increases in size in a blink of an eye and crushes Batman under his large boot. It's pretty funny and awesome.

I never really thought about how that could be an effective attack move, but it totally worked in Batman Beyond #2. I started thinking that characters like Marvel's Ant-Man and DC's Atom could simply get airborne over the bad guys and just do a giant belly-flop on top of them.

Great scene!

The Invincible Iron Man #500.1

The Invincible Iron Man #500.1 - Comic of the Day
High tech drunks are the most fun!
The consensus is in! Invincible Iron Man #500.1 was kind of boring...which is too bad because the issue cost $3. I could have used that money on a Trader Joe's salad. They're so cheap!

"Boring", you say in an inquisitively mocking voice. Yeah! I think the story could have been much better. So what would I have done?

Well, you could keep the whole first part of the story where Tony is explaining his life and his decisions in life, but at the very end the panels should widen and pull back on the scene to reveal that Tony has fallen off the wagon and is super drunk speaking to a bunch of people in the lobby of a Triple A (AAA) office. A worker then walks up to Tony and says, "Mr. Stark, your vehicle registration papers are all set on your new "thing in your chest powered" car. Tony throws down his bottle of XX (Dos Equis) and asks the reader, "Now, who would like to take a ride with the most interesting man in the world?"

The comic of the day just got freak'n awesome. You're welcome.

DC Universe Online Legends #1

DC Universe Online Legends #1 - Comic of the Day
DC for dummies.
Marvel is my main brand. I grew up reading mostly Marvel comic books and currently read mostly Marvel comic books. My love for Marvel is strong; however, that does not mean I do not also enjoy other publishers such as DC. Some of my favorite stories are DC stories such as All-Star Superman and Batman: The Long Halloween. So though I know Marvel well, I still know a little bit about DC and their characters.

Being a comic book fan means I am in the comic shop almost ever Wednesday and thus see all of the comic books that come out. I've been cover-coerced into buying DC books quite often. And with DC Universe Online Legends #1, that is exactly what happened.

The comic of the day follows the online video game's storyline involving Lex Luthor's eventual victory over Superman which turns into a betrayal by his alien computer partner Brainiac. That ol' story. The first issue does a nice job of setting up the problem which must be overcome: ridding the earth of Brainiac and dealing with Luthor's misguided ambition to kill Superman.

DC Universe Online Legends #1 turns out to be the perfect comic book for people who know about DC characters, but do not follow what is currently prominent in DC story-lines. Basically, if you are a person that doesn't follow the time-line of what's what these days with DC, this is the book for you.

Thunderbolts #152

Thunderbolts #152 - Comic of the Day
Lead the way to fun, Luke Cage!
Jeff Parker's Thunderbolts #152 is exactly what I want to read. Let's review why!

The comic of the day stays true to the Thunderbolts title by continuing to evolve the team through the addition and subtraction of members. Parker throws Hyperion, a Superman-like character, into the mix and doesn't tell the reader if he is an evil bad guy like Crossbones was or if he is just a misunderstood bad-due like Juggernaut currently is. As the story unfolds we see a side of Hyperion which the team did not expect and leads straight into the next issue.

The next aspect of the issue that I loved was that the Thunderbolts team with heavy hitters like Juggs, Luke Cage and now Hyperion are pitted against a bunch of monster sized creatures such as a snapping turtle the size of a city. Parker gives these amazing beasts to Kev Walker so that he may destroy the book with outstanding visuals. (When I say "destroy" I mean it in the sense that he owned art. Kev Walker gave the idea of art a head-lock and noogie, and told art that it will bend to his will. So "destroy" is a good thing.) Writing Juggernaut as he attacks giant creatures is fun to see, as well. Momentum building never felt so fun!

Fighting creatures is cool, but in the end I want to see some battles between people. As I touched on when mentioning Hyperion, the ending of the book bleeds it's way into an exciting lead-in to the next comic book where there is sure to be some fist damage done. My guess, Juggs and Cage put a new member in his place. A sign of a good issue is a comic book which makes you want to buy the next one. Well played Jeff Parker.

January Comic of the Day Recap

Well it only took me until March, but I finally got through the first month of the year. I am pretty excited for the new type of comic of the day post, Drunken Comic Books, which came out of January...just a couple of days ago, in fact. It will give me a chance to both expand my thoughts on some comic books and, of course, get drunk more often.

So what drove you to become an alcoholic, Dom?

Comic books.

Check out some of my favorite posts in January!
