Top of the stack: Red Hood!

Hey all, a mighty stack of books this week! and at the top of my stack is Red Hood: the Lost Days #3.

Red Hood: the Lost Days follows Jason Todd, the Robin that was murdered by Joker, and his return to the DC universe.  The time gap between his resurrection and actual return recent batman arc's is quite significant.  The story opens up with Thalia (Gul's Daughter) finding a zombie like Jason wandering the streets.  His mind seems to be gone but all his physical skill is still intact, if you attack him he will defend himself.  Her plan is to return him to her beloved Batman who she knows is deeply scarred by the loss of Jason.  She decides to throw Jason into a Lazarus pit hoping to bring his mind back...but she's surprised when it in fact works but the newly aware Jason is only hell bend on making Batman pay for allowing joker to live.

She's made a huge mistake and is now trying to stall Jason, by finding him teachers in the art of death, from completing his mission.

The book as been absolutely fantastic!  Judd Winick should definitely get back on an ongoing Bat-title because his work with Jason's character is perfect.  In this series you'll learn how he felt after being brought back, and then witness his road to return, and why he operates the way he does now...and also how he got the skills to do it. Although the entire return of Todd is a resurrection of a significant death in Batman's history I think he makes a great villain!

For more Red Hood action be sure to read up on his return in Under the Hood TPB and the brand new animated movie Under the Hood!

Sixth Gun review

So what happens when you take, the Pinkerton Detective Agency, western lore about a mysterious pistol and a tree that seems to grow only hanged man. You'll have yourself a great book put out by Oni Press by Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt.

Now as far as indie comics are concerned this book is where I feel that all indie books should be at. Solid line work and really great colors and a story that pops. If you're into westerns and are familiar with any of the sort of the spaghetti western type stuff, this book is a scream!

Cullen Bunn's writing is at a point where He doesn't go for cheap laughs or easy thrills he's actually working on making a book that's better than just your standard 'one hitter quitter' Ie. Most Mark Millar Books.

Brian Hurtt's art gives the book a very vibrant and solid feel. It has almost Mignolga esque coloring wise, but color isn't the oly thing this books got going art wise. Great sequentials are all over this thing giving it the sense of drama and weighty camera angle that the western is so known for. Which is no easy task.

Now on the whole this book is relatively new so there's a lot of room either way for things to go up (which i think is where it's going) or down. (not so much) I know this summer has been big for a lot of crazy good super hero stuff coming along, but if you're looking for a change of pace this book fills that need.

Come check it out.

See you at the shop.

Best Coming Last Week: Uncanny X-men #523

Yo folks, it should come at no suprise that Uncanny X-men #523 was the best coming last week!

The story continues as hope and Cable try to hook up with the X-men while being hunted by pretty much every mutant hating organization in the universe!

Check out the great pencils by Dodson! Look at wolverine giving Cyclops his respect, a current trend that i'm really digging.
Cable and Hope try to fight to survive. The story has a slight Terminator (Hope = John Connor) vibe to it, but damned if it isn't a good use of the idea.
Great moments where you thinkg they are safe, but end up having to run again.
And if that ain't enough to get you to pick up the book...i guess i'll have to revel one of the bad about Bastion??? the super Sentinel/Nimrod hybrid mutant hunter?!?

Second coming part #1 has sold out already, and second printing has been announced. So if you missed out let Heroes World staff know you want in on 2nd print, and in the meantime scoop up Uncanny #523 while they last!

Vader is a Badass!

Hey guys, did you check out Purge #1 last week?? if you didn't man you are missing out! Vader is a total badass! Also combine him with some wicked painted art and you've got pure darkside gold!
Vaders so bad, he makes medicine sick!

Best Comic Last Week: X-men Second Coming #1

So in a week where Blackest Night #8 hits...i'd have to say somehow X-men Second Coming #1 manages to beat it out and become...THE BEST COMIC LAST WEEK!
While i may be bias as the X-men have been my all time favorite comic property...EVER! It was a REALLY good read. For those of you that don't know since M-Day (see House of M TPB) there are less than 198 mutants left on the earth. And since M Day there have been NO mutant births since..except for one child, known as Hope. Cyclops the current leader of the X-men believe her to be mutant kinds savior and sent her, along with Cable into the future for safe keeping (see Messiah Complex TBP). And now they have returned.
Now is the mutants darkest hour, with their population rapidly diminishing, survival from extinction rests on the shoulders of Cyclops! You see Cyclops has achieved what Professor X, Apocalypse, Magneto, and many more could not...he has consolidated all the power of the mutant population. Cyclops has become the leader of essentially the entire mutant race! Which is totally badass! he's cold, he's smart and he's kicking ass and taking names. He's the Batman of the X-men. He's willing to do whatever it takes to save his race.

Including sanctioning the team known as X-force to do alot of dirty killing folks that need to be killed! check out this action spread!
This issue seems to move so fast, it's much ground is covered, and even if you have't read previous X-men stuff you'll be caught up quickly. Also wicked art by David Finch helps as well. This is probalby one of the coolest panels ever...the X-men being teleported into action.
Second Coming is the 3rd part of the Messiah Complex trilogy (Messiah Complex, Messiah War, Second Coming) and will take place over the course of 14 chapters that will spread though out the X-title line up...if this is any indication of the series then it will be one hell of a ride!

Second Coming Checklist:
Chapter 1 X-men Second Coming
Chapter 2 Uncanny X-men 523
Chapter 3 New Mutants 12
Chapter 4 X-men Legacy 235
Chapter 5 X-Force 26

Chapter 10 Uncanny X-men 525

Chapter 12 X-men Legacy 237
Chapter 13 X-Force 28
Chapter 14 X-men Second Coming Finale

Upcoming hype: The Expendables Comic

Probably the most anticipated movie ever...okay maybe only by me...will have a 4 issue comic prequel in May! Written by Chuck Dixon and art by Esteve Polls.

I've read a little more about the movie, and it sounds like my kind of movie for sure...and hopefully all you action fans will like it as well. The comic series will showcase the team at an earlier time than we'll see in the movie.

In interviews Dixon points out that Dolph Lundgren will possibly steal the movie (he's plays a team member that was kicked out and will be a villian)...which sounds awesome!

can't wait! if you wanna check out the prequel comics series be sure to let Heroes World staff know!

Best Comics from Last couple Weeks!

Sorry guys, falling behind here's the best comics from the last couple weeks

Best comic 3 weeks ago: Powers #1

Wow, i can't tell you how good this book is! This is one of those books where truly anything can happen. Powers is basically about cops in a world of super heroes, Christan Walker is a detective in the homicide POWERS division, so he deals with murders and deaths involving the super powered.
This is the all new powers starting anew at #1 and here is issue #3...and man was this a great climax to the series so far...first two issues were so really good set up by bendis, who i will admit can run wild with dialogue sometimes, but man this was worth it, this issue was definitely a wicked pay off.

If your a fan of shows like The Shield, or the Wire, Sopranos, etc you'll love this book! where else can you see panels like this?!?

Best comic 2 weeks ago: Siege #3

Next we get Thor vs Sentry!! oh yeah!
and then add on the return of real deal Ironman?!?

Easily the best comic 2 weeks ago! and if your not reading The Siege...your way out of the loop! it's the return of Captain America, Thor and Ironman power houses! Norman Osborne has gone nutso and decided to take Asguard (thor's land). So far Ares has fallen...and fallen hard, he won't be around for sometime because that death was pretty clear.

Best comic last week: Secret Warriors #14

Now we're back up to date! The best comic last week was...SECRET WARRIORS #14!! oh yeah...why aren't you reading Secret Warriors? first off it has Dum Dum in it! oh yeah, he's back.
It's got crazy twists!
The art is absolutely phenomenal! check out this page!
For those of you not in the know...aka the non-cool people...Secret Warriors follows Nick Fury and his band of Secret Warriors, a strike team he put together to take down hydra...who has apparently been pulling Shield's strings from the begining...oh wait...there is even another force pulling hydra's strings! can't wait till the next issue.

allllll right, that gets us back to speed! what will be the best comic this week??? hmmm, it'll be tough, because Blackest Night #8 hits! also stay tuned for a new edition of "Aww...your bones!"

Best Comic Last Week: Wolverine Weapon X #11


So the best comic last week yet again features more return of Captain America action!
This time it's two of marvels oldest (age wise that is) characters hitting up a pub crawl!! The issue has some really great moments where they deal with caps death...of course wolvie plays it off like it's nothing...stating in fact that he was there for Cap's first "death", a very nice touch.

Now Jason Aaron has this wicked ability to throw in some sillyness and make it cool as hell. Enter Deathlok in a terminator like role, looking to eliminate key players in current time line. Great use of an older character!

Wolverine Weapon X has totally delivered on being it's own wolverine book and it's story arcs like this that will really make the book. Jason Aaron has become one of my favorite Marvel writers as he seems to know we're dealing with comic books here so he throws in just the right about of "out there" ideas but keeps it grounded. If you like this book be sure to check out Ghost Riders: Heaven's on Fire that just hit in TPB this week!
