Hello interweb, Nate here! Last year I tried and failed to do a Christmas series special thingamajig with my 90’cember. So, why don’t I do something simpler! I’ll count down the top 5 Comics each company has produced this year as well as all the comic book movies! So here’s my Top 5 favorite Marvel comics of 2016!
Funny side note: Originally my idea was to have a top 10 best comics with Marvel and DC on a combined list and then a top 10 worst comics of both companies still, but I liked almost everything being published right now so pretty much the only bad comics I could think of is Civil War II and New Avengers because I didn’t like either of those titles. Even the comics I read that I thought weren’t amazing still wasn’t that bad, just okay.
Hello interweb, Nate here. So despite my love for the X-Men, I have to admit that I’ve fallen behind on the team. Now All-New, All-Different Marvel is starting up again with new X-Men titles but I’ve heard good things and bad things about Brian Michael Bendis’s Uncanny X-Men and All-New X-Men titles from “Marvel Now!” so I thought I’d go back and read those two titles before jumping on the current ones. So while binge-reading (is that a thing?) these two X-Men comics, I finally got around to reading the 2013 mega crossover event: X-Men: Battle of the Atom. This 10-issue story crossed over every X-Men title that was going on at the time so if you love the X-Men as much as I do than it is definitly a must read. But I’ve stalled long enough, so let’s get to the review! Also, spoiler warning. (more…)
Hello interweb, Nate here. Alright, so I’m pretty behind on the current X-Men titles (I talk more about that below) but on Facebook I noticed something rather interesting: Iceman’s gay! As you can see from the images below (click to enlarge and zoom), in All-New X-Men #40 Iceman, aka Bobby Drake, comes out of the closet. (more…)
