All New All Different Marvel Now #1

Marvel reboot starts

All New All Different Marvel Now #1 ----- All New All Different Marvel Now #1 ----- All New All Different Marvel Now #1

      MARVEL COMICS has, it seems, been leading it's readers on a journey of epic proportions over the past few years, with mighty characters taking 'the-big-dirt-nap', mysterious alliances poping up, & saga-inducing storylines taking its readers on quests never before imagined within the scope of what the long-loved 'MARVEL UNIVERSE' had been known as throughout its 55+ YEAR HISTORY with many of its flagships having existed enchanting [...through previous companies...] for over 75 YEARS!!!...

 Ms Marvel 1 new 1    ....Now, it seems likely those sometimes innocent times of yore, or Marvel-Lore, will no longer be shining down upon 'The House That STAN LEE & JACK KIRBY Built' [...among others...] as a storm of electicity will be shocking the company from storm clouds blacker than anything seen in its pages can relate to....

     ....30+ YEARS AGO, in out of a direction by then Editor-In-Chief Jim Shooter, an idea was hatched to shake up the heroes, adding new dramas, new costumes, and closer continuity for all in a project titled 'MARVEL SUPERHEROES SECRET WARS', its largest undertaking for the publisher at the time...

     ....It was HUGE, making many changes which still are affecting today's 'M.U.'!  So, flash-forward to 2015, where a NEW THREAT EMERGED from a simpler-titled sequel, 'SECRET WARS', which again has shifted the tectonic plates of the place so many have called home, while those ENGAGED-LOYAL-READERS looking in have been put to work trying to solve its thrilling puzzles, & decipher the rich, complex stories interlinked within....

    ....Now, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN ITS HISTORY, MARVEL COMICS IS 'STARTING OVER' [LINK #2] with drastically obvious examples of its 'ALL-NEW, ALL-DIFFERENT, ALL #1' tagline, where what you see, is not what you expect, nor what you know....

    .....It IS a FANTASTIC-JUMPING-ON-POINT for those newly converted, through the 'SECRET WARS' hype, the close-to-the-chest examples of the comics best storylines used for its blockbuster movies introducing millions to their heroes, the terrific TV offered-up pathway in, its videogame logged extensive biographical info peeking your curiousity, or just finally achieved the 'now-I'm-ready-to-be-taken-on-a-breathtaking-ride' state of mind needed to dip your toe in....

Daredevil 1 new  Gardians of the Galaxy 1 new  Spiderman 1 new Agents of Shield 1 new

    .....ANY REASON IS ENOUGH, & worthy of picking up what MARVEL COMICS hasn't offered anyone in half a century, that is A PLACE TO BEGIN [Link #1], where indeed IT IS A START, for everything & everyone, both fiction or not, heroic or not, gender-friendly or not, & TRADITION OR NOT.....

    .....This is not about what it isn't, the same, it is instead about what IT IS, a MASSIVE OPPORTUNITY PROVIDED to be able to look back upon this FRESH BEGINNING as a WELCOMED PLACE TO STAND among THE HISTORY of the medium of sequential arts, from its GOLDEN AGE of Flash Gordon, Prince Valiant, & Superman, to the SILVER AGE which introduced more realism into the mix with BARRY ALLEN, aka THE FLASH, Peter Parker as SPIDER-MAN, & Tony Stark's IRON MAN, to name a few...

all new marvel 1

    .....From whatever STARTING POINTS [Link #1] lead you to PEEK INSIDE @ THE ARTFORM, to the JOYS OF SHARING WITH FRIENDS the dramas of each episode, & the CHANGING DISCUSSIONS around the watercooler, it takes little sluething to uncover THE TRUTH, which is times have changed, and both fustrating & JOYFULLY we're glad they have!...

Uncanny Inhumans 1 new Captain Marvel 1 new Thor 1 new A-Force 1 new

      ....No longer can you 'count' on 'comic book storytelling' to be what it once was, as echoed throughout years of LOVING THESE CHARACTERS ALMOST AS MUCH AS THE MEDIUM ITSELF, readers have advanced into creators, and creators into editors caretaking the best & evolving the rest, making it A BETTER PRODUCT, a MORE WORTHY & DEEPER ENTERTAINMENT, & A WEALTHIER INDUSTRY for its indulgers....one grandly PROGRESSIVE & INVITING TO 'MARVEL AT'......pun intended!....

  Doctor Strange 1 new   ....No matter how once feels about a polarizing RE-LAUNCH of the ENTIRETY OF MARVEL COMICS, the industry will benefit, NEW FANS WILL BE BORN, & THE CREATIVITY WILL CONTINUE TO SHINE within this GROWING place where SO MANY ARE ALLOWED TO SHINE, allowed to SHARE, & allowed to FATHER [...& MOTHER...] this EXTRA-SIZED stable of nooks, crannies, & places where READERS & ARTISTS & WRITERS & UNIVERSES OF POSSIBILITY can ALL FEEL JUST AS AT HOME as most of us have felt CUDDLED UP WITH A GREAT BOOK.....

    ....YES, gone may be the days when staples in a story meant it was hindered by the trappings of a fearful watchdog [ see the 'joys' of the COMICS-CODE [Link #3] ] but indeed we now offer to the world everything & more of which any medium provides its users.....IDEAS....libraries of them, books of them, pages of them, & most importantly, panels of them....

    ......[intermission.....just kidding!]....

     With 2016 also including AN ALL-NEW POWER RANGERS MOVIE in the works, it seems P.R.-FANS will have LOTS of reasons to remember these characters, while 'newbies' can chat up their elders on this classic 'old-kitsch' we all love, and, as it has outlasted most entertainment franchises [ twenty + years, so far ] it's a safe bet to say, "Who could EVER forget the morphin'?"2016 Power Rangers preview

"You know the funny thing about morphin'?...You don't appreciate it till you can't do it anymore!" -------Billy Cranston: The Blue Ranger, in the 1995's 'Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie'

"Go Go, Power Rangers! You Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers!" -----M.M.P.R. opening song lyrics----

"Go Go, Power Rangers! Don't you ever stop! Go Go, Power Rangers! Keep on risin' to the top. Never surrender, Dino Charge stronger together!"   ------Lame-o new song lyrics, which are probably better than the original ones [..see above..], but are still lame because....well.....well....because we said so, that's why...---

SpiderGwen logo 2    'SPIDER-GWEN' is a new monthly MARVEL title, spinning out of the prequel 'EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE' story, in which SPIDER-MAN is confronted with not only meeting, but also teaming-up with, parallel-universe versions of himself to stop a powerful force out to eliminate any & all 'SPIDERS'....

STAR WARS 1 COMIC  STAR WARS 1 ACTION FIGURE VAR   STAR WARS 1 CHRISTOPHER HUMOROUS PARTY VAR

 ---- MARVEL COMICS STAR WARS # 1 2015 WILL COVER A LOT  [above, COVERS 'A', 'ACTION FIGURE', &'PARTY' ]  ----

      Just as the beginnings of [...for those of a certain age...] yet another 'STAR WARS FEVER' catch the wind, soon to be injested by the grinning youth of its age, in this case the silver-screen-starved [...as far as 1st-run STAR WARS movies are concerned...] not yet teenaged, whose 'FORCE-BASED' energies have only come as fable-based tales passed down from the older generations of its legendary status in SCI-FI lore....

     .....These soon-2-B new recruits will be joined by the newly nostalgic pangs of those whos movie-theater-watching JEDI were always ideally packaged & labelled as 'Episodes'....yet surely as HOTH has snow, they ARE just as passionate as any others!....                           

     ......As well, the troopers who may even recall a time or two when 'STAR WARS FEVER'seemed subsided, only to be renewed by talk of the 'SPECIAL EDITIONS' due soon as re-releases, or of the HISTORIC ROLE the COMICS INDUSTRY played in reigniting the condition [...keep reading...see below] over-twenty-years-ago, these learned elders also will find their place...

     .....As the story goes, "A LONG TIME AGO, IN A GALAXY devoid of Guardians looking like raccoons teaming up with speech-impeeded mobile trees, FAR FAR AWAY...", a certain GEORGE LUCAS, he later of HOWARD THE DUCK movie fame, had a tough time convincing the 'Powers That Be' @ MARVEL COMICS to put out a comics adaption of his 'space-fantasy' fairy-tale which went on to become 'the greatest of all time'....

      ....It is almost unfathomable today to envision a time when presenting a comic to the world about "blasters, droids, & spacey light-swords" was a risky proposition, yet in debt we all are to the decision-makers who's green light would fast-track [1970s style] the debut of the original 'STAR WARS #1' an adaption published astoundingly a few months BEFORE THE MOVIE EVEN HIT, leading a reading audience to promote the merits of its adventures to all who'd listen...

Marvel's STAR WARS comics did quite well, almost single-handedly lending a new generation multiple reasons to pick up a comic book filled with all-new extended stories every month, and, along with being excited by swash-buckling sci-fi 'swordplay' in a ground-breaking assortment of formats including magazine, treasury, & pocket book-sized, it allowed Marvel superheroes to piggy-back along as well through ads & specials...

     ..The truth is, from the enlightening aspects of the  'STAR WARS SICKNESSES', through to the heartbreaks of its GRIEF [...many STILL TELL tall tales, to anyone who'll listen, of how a long-since-released movie's unfilled potentials lead to their loss of inocence... :o], THE FORCE IS STRONG in us, and we are all one....gleefully welcoming any & all side effects which may lead to....THE DARK SIDE...both of ourselves & the movies AND COMICS we so dearly LOVE!.....

      STAR WARS 1 COMIC.......Hence, MARVEL COMICS NEW STAR WARS #1, the reclaiming of the franchise by it's original publisher, is the PERFECT Disney-lead lead-in to DECEMBER 2015's third generation STAR WARS trilogy....

        ......one rumours hint, the first new movie, THE FORCE AWAKENS may plot-wise be similar to that twenty-something story which kickstarted back in gear everything us fans hold dear, STAR WARS: DARK EMPIRE, & its sequel, DARK EMPIRE II, the first hot-as-fried-Womprats back then offerings from DARK HORSE COMICS, whom it is assumed had an easier time being convinced of the STAR WARS brand's market ability than did STAN LEE back in 1976....

                                            ......words by t.m.maple leaf, for...... Image new LOGO 

---Darth Vader: "Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed....The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the potential of the Force...."
---Admiral Motti: "Don't try to frighten us with your sorcerous ways, Lord Vader....Your sad devotion to that ancient Jedi religion has not helped you conjure up the stolen data tapes, or given you enough clairvoyance to find the rebels' hidden fortress..."
      [..........Vader makes a pinching motion and Motti starts choking.......]
----Darth Vader: "I find your lack of faith disturbing......"
----Governor Tarkin: "Enough of this! Vader, release him!...."
----Darth Vader: "As you wish....." [...He does...]
--------------FROM 'STAR WARS', back when THAT was it's title, in 1977, when the voice of James Earl Jones freaked out everything & everyone, and a phenom trumpeted a new 'DARK REIGN', and 'kids' of ALL ages began wondering about the 'ORIGIN OF THE JEDI'....that is,...until NOW!!!...

Walking Dead Shocker!...It's Dethroned From #1 Bestseller by Space Fantasy Romance SAGA !

***********see below for more on 'THE WALKING DEAD' **********

.......................

SAGA Rockets Sales-wise...

as Romance / SCI-FI / Everything-But-The-Kitchen-Sink Mashup

Pleases Readers To No End...Of The Galaxy!

.

...........

 THE WALKING DEAD   -   SAGA      -     FABLES

       2012's Break-Out Hit Series 'SAGA' by publisher IMAGE is fast becoming 2013's go-to 'must-read', as its content-heavy storytelling, by Y the Last Man's writer [along with RUNAWAYS, PRIDE OF BAGHDAD, EX MACHINA] BRIAN K. VAUGHAN pushes buttons, driving an intergalactic war with solid characters of all clans through a fully shocking, yet satisfyingly worthy mature read for those comfortable racing in the pot-holed speed lane....

.

.............

. 

While Image Comics THE WALKING DEAD had held on & off [but mostly on]  to the #1 BESTSELLER SPOT for most of the past 3 years, due to its exceptional drama, relatable characters, and shocking plot-twists [...only some of which are seen in the obviously helping-to-sell-some-books hit AMC TV-SERIES...], it seems a new off-beat, off-planet, of-all-things...ROMANCE title is taking a bite out of 'Zombie-Madness's thunder!

...........

SAGA             -       FABLES

.

SAGA is slightly comparable to the popular & multi-award-winning FABLES, a Vertigo* title unspooling the tales of fictitious fables exiled to reality; existing secretly and trying to get back to their stories, bending the rules while avoiding interactions with 'mundies' [us].  With Snow White leader of their faux government, and many doing as they please, writer Bill Willingham's possibilities, just like it's species count, are essentially endless...

..........

[ *Vertigo = sophisticated storytelling for a 'literate audience']

Another FEMALE-FRIENDLY Hall-Of-Fame caliber title STRANGERS IN PARADISE details the sometimes madcap, sometimes deadly serious lives of two realistic [ex: one's 'plumpful anxiety'] women who's lives are turned upside down by the [non-x-men] gambits they've taken with men and those politically above & below the law...

THE WALKING DEAD Breaking Bad Habits In Comic Zombieland

*************************

 

THE WALKING DEAD Breaking Bad Habits In Comic Zombieland....

by T.M. Maple Leaf

 

............. 

 

It May Seem Like 'THE WALKING DEAD' Is Over-Rated, As It Balances A Monthly Series From IMAGE COMICS, NOVELS, Video Games, & One Of The Highest Rated TV Shows Of The Season...

 

......But,.......  IF YOU'VE EVER READ THE ORIGINALS, YOU KNOW ......

 

With Drama, Shocking Twists, & Page-Turning Suspense, Mixed With True Emotional Highs & Lows, There Is Much MORE To THIS,

the Annual BESTSELLING GRAPHIC NOVEL For 3 Straight Years!!!...

 As Stated In The Title To This, THE WALKING DEAD is Indeed Breaking Bad Habits in Comic Zombieland Which Have Festered For Some For What Seems Like Forever....

[...and IS forever in the case of most people's lives reading this...] 

           During most of the life-span of those over a certain age there existed, until recently, a long-standing pre-conceived notion the medium of comics contained mostly content befitting general-rated enteratinment, no more than 'laymen' reading, simplistic & uncomplicated....

     We can hear your cries of "How Could They Think...?", "Didn't They Know About...?", & "They Must Not Have Read...!" already, but the truth is....it's not their fault...mostly...

.

Who Would Have Believed One of the Most Unbelievable [read 'unrealistic'] Notions of Graphic Fiction, OK...lets say fiction, That Of 'The Dishelvelled, Deteriorating, Back From The Dead, Now Haunting Humanity-Challenged Humans While Walking In A World Of Disarray & Disorder' Genre Mainly Kickstarted By The 1968 'Night Of The Living Dead' movie, and given hefty boosting from both the'28 Days Later...' film* and 2003's 'THE WALKING DEAD' on-going monthly title from publisher IMAGE, would lead to the decaying of some previously heavily cemented beliefs about North American SEQUENTIAL ARTWORK and the enjoyment of it...

Not only did a TV SHOW do justice to it's original comic-based material, opening the door for other 'live-actioners' to come ['ARROW', Marvel's 'S.H.I.E.L.D', Image's 'THIEF OF THIEVES' & 'POWERS'**], it lead to behavioural changes the graphic arts medium has been trying to trend for at least half a century, especially so since the demise of it's own real-life horror [dog & pony] show, THE COMICS CODE , a staple ball & chain of stapled four colour entertainment since 1954.... 

Now almost eleven years [and 130+ issues-you'll-want-to-read-without-spoilers-if-possible] later, its influence is almost unheard of....

THE WALKING DEAD has all but eliminated the stigma of 'child-like' which had stuck to the medium throughout most of the 20th century, allowing it to flourish to new standards, opening new storytelling windows to look through for previously boxed-in-readers....

Sure, comics had 'grown up' in the 1980s, with true applause trickling in from the mainstream arts world, yet it would be painstaking years later before a certain TV-SHOW made the world actually stand up & take notice of all its potentials....

   Obviously many regular titles and publishers have contributed to a matured definition within the pages of the mixture of layered art with words, notable being VERTIGO COMICS, but none on such a wide-scale-assault as IMAGE COMICS 'THE WALKING DEAD'...

Almost singlehandedly it's responsible for, in a short time, multiplying the readership for, accessablilty of, & acclaim towards the truely great masterpieces available as well as those yet-to-come in both the graphic novels & the comics worlds....

An unlikely occurence as any, 'ZOMBIES' have made it easy to jump into the artistic merit & diversity of a form of expression now unburdened by its previous donkey-like saddle....

 

[.....The TV SHOW is almost 50% NEW Content From The Darker Comic, or Vice-Versa.....]

 

[........so YES, you CAN ENJOY [and not ruin] BOTH......]

 

Volume One is The Beginning   --   Volume 3 is approx When Season 3 Begins

 

Volume 5 Introduces 'The Governor' [much differently] when RICK himself 1st meets this complicated leader & misleader......is shocked

 

..............

 Try 'WALKING DEAD #1' for only $1 @ Image Collections,

 ALSO: READ 'Thief Of Thieves'[$1] and READ 'INVINCIBLE'[$1], both by Robert Kirkman!

[.....while supplies last...]

* [pink, very Zombie-ish, yes?]  Strangely enough, the similarity of the beginnings of '28 Days' & 'THE WALKING DEAD' are said to be a coincidence...

**Yes, we know 'POWERS' the excellent outside-the-box cop comic is no longer there, but it did begin as an IMAGE title.

.....

THE NEW Justice League series [with art by fan-favourite JIM [Wildstorm, BATMAN:HUSH] LEE pulls apart the DC Universe by laying the enticing ground-work for the whole reinvinted 'DC-New-52', pushing 'DETECTIVE COMICS'* forward into the 21st Century.... 

And yes, the 'DC-NEW-52' version of SUPERMAN [written by GRANT [**] MORRISON] is very unique, well-thought-out, & defiantly re-done for the 21st Century....

WHILE SUPPLIES LAST....Pick up FOR ONLY A DOLLAR either ....

New ACTION COMICS #1 [...first story of the 'DC-NEW-52' SUPERMAN...]

Mark Millar: The Mildly Sneaky Guy Tries To Take Over The Comic Industry With...Egads!...Great Writing...

 

******imageLogo5smlr**** imageLogo5smlr****imageLogo5smlr******

 There is one Mr Mark Millar who is scampering underfoot us all, pulling strings which unbeknownst to those who seldom look down, are slowly and purposefully moving towards a clamoring thunderstrike which will rock....and roll out the New Age Of Storytelling With Images...

How he is doing it all is unclear at this time, though he has been spotted frolicking with all sorts within the comic industry, carefully constructing The End....& The Beginning of his domination of the contemporay part of our medium...

Should we stop him?....Could we stop him?....

Take a LOOK AT these tidy bits of recent evidence.....

********************************************

SECRET SERVICE #1 (MR)
MARVEL COMICS
(W) Mark Millar (A/CA) Dave Gibbons

From The Writer Of Kick-Ass And The Artist Of Watchmen Comes A Collaboration Decades In The Making....

 Says Writer Mark Millar:....."Secret Service Is The Ramifications Of [How] America Is Struggling On The World Stage, Funding Is Being Seriously Undercut To Balance The Books And Some People Are Trying Their Best To Take Advantage Of The Fragile Global Situation. The Hero And Sidekick Guys Who Lead The Book Are, I Think, The Best Characters I've Written....
[[[[Product Update (1/9/2012): The price has changed from $3.99 to the new price of $2.99.]]]  [see 'kiddies'*....popularity breeds SAVINGS! ;o]

WE SAY......

Almost EVERY Mark Millar project over the last 5 YEARS has lead to 'instant hit' status [see SUPERCROOKS #1 below], so it's no surprise this should do well....

Add to that, the mixture of a very solid, legendary [thanks to WATCHMEN] artist Dave Gibbons [fresh from a TON of publicity about the upcoming WATCHMEN PREQUELS [....coming sometime this year]], a QUASI-POLITICAL PLOT, the 'name-recognition' of a HIGH RANKING SECURITY CLASS [protecting the prez], and it becomes a very worthy read!

********************************************

SUPERCROOKS #1 (OF 4) (MR)
MARVEL COMICS
(W) Mark Millar (A/CA) Leinil Francis Yu

When The Market Is Flooded With Competition And The Authorities Are Always On Your Tail, What's An All-American Supervillain To Do? Go To Spain, Of Course! From The Writer Who Brought You Kick-Ass And The Artist Of Secret Invasion Comes A New Series About A Team Of Superpowered Ne'er-Do-Wells Looking To Pull Off One Last Heist In The Land Of Bullfighting And Delicious Churros.
32 Pgs./Mature ...$3.99
Product Update (1/9/2012): The price has changed from $3.99 to the new price of $2.99 [see 'kiddies'*....Who says Mark Millar doesn't have a heart**... ;o]

* 'kiddies' in this case refers to 'kids@heart' as ALL of MARK [ "I wrote 'Kick A$$' !" ] MILLAR'S projects [...and there's MANY of 'em!...] are for 'mature-er readers than one might expect....'

** We here @ Image Collections know PERFECTLY WELL that MARK [ ...."I wrote 'CIVIL WAR' where a bunch of heroes heroically beat-up another bunch of heroes for being heroic unheroically..."] MILLAR really DOES love children, cares for developing future comic readers, enjoys the occasional non-threatening HUG, & would probably deny the existence of an intergalactic agenda advocating the expulsion of the label of ALL-AGES from sequential artistry if one ever became sentiently interested in revealing itself, even IF he isn't writing peachy-clean, warm &  fuzzy, kid-friendly fare......[ wow, our cutting-edge sappily written satire never gets through, though it sure gets old pretty quick when compared to the number of lost readers since the start of this paragraph :o)....Shy sharply-witted sheepishness, it seems, is NOTHING when compared to the powerful lobbying of the DARK SIDE that is reality!.....Besides, Mark Millar DID care tremendously when writing his exceptional 'youthly' fun-filled readings back in 'SUPERMAN ADVENTURES', didn't he?....] 

 WE SAY:

As noted above [...before the wierd stuff...], Mark Millar's selected projects tend to consist of high quality writing with top notch art and yet still somehow always end up under-the-radar and in most cases with each issue going through multiple printings [...that STILL sell out].

In this case, Leinil [NEW AVENGERS] Francis Yu will be providing the visuals, as he did with Millar's SHAZAM-like 'SUPERIOR' last year, meaning there's a solid case the creative team will gel even futher in this go-around....

MARK MILLAR's OTHER Dark Past Scribbling Has Produced:...[Along With Our Own Image Collections [I.C.] Rating out of 5 STARS.....]

................

         1. CIVIL WAR           2. WANTED          3. OLD MAN LOGAN     4.NEMESIS      5. The ULTIMATES     6.ULTIMATES II      7.ULTIMATE F.F.   

1.----CIVIL WAR.....a messy, yet tight MARVEL crossover that left the MARVEL UNIVERSE in a tattered, but 'stately' state of being worldly worthy again...  --- I.C. Rating of ***** 5/5

2.------WANTED....slightly like the A.Jolie movie, a deeply darkened look at a geek gone black, suddenly pushed into a past unknown, instantly he's the MOST WANTED!!! --- I.C. Rating of ***** 4.5/5

3.------OLD MAN LOGAN....no one would believe it, a passive cowardly WOLVERINE, unprepared for a trip across a barren future U.S.A!  --- I.C. Rating of **** 4/5

4.------NEMESIS......This twice-as-rich anti-BATMAN epitomises the game-playing psychopathic loser who wins only if society can be broken! --- I.C. Rating of ***** 5/5  

5.------THE ULTIMATES....Pity has no place in the political 'superfication' of America even when it gets in the way of its own Avengers-like ULTIMATE COMICS-line members!  --- I.C. Rating of ***** 5/5

6.------FANTASTIC FOUR & the ULTIMATE COMICS' FF....Introducing wild science and the MARVEL ZOMBIES, both tiltles dripped SCI-FI notions into every scene! --- I.C. Rating of **** 4/5 & --- I.C. Rating of ***** 4/5

7.-------The AUTHORITY.....He followed Legendary writer Warren Ellis on a First-Generational team of anti-heroes caught up in uncaring for the sacrality of our human realities--- I.C. Rating of ***** 4.5/5 

Now it's YOUR TURN to tell us what YOU think.....Is Mark Millar still on the side of the angels?...

                                                      ********************************* 

..The MUCH-acclaimed [and Mark Millar-written] smash MARVEL UNIVERSE series which poses 'police state' questions about the implications of imposing heroic figures at large, the 2006 title 'CIVIL WAR', simply one of the best selling [for good reasons :o] collections in MARVEL's [and Image Collections] history....

...is NOW a great 'CIVIL WAR' NOVEL [...hint: LOTS MORE words, LOT fewer pictures..] with both HARDCOVER & SOFTCOVER [...soon] versions!

WHO GIVES A HOOT ABOUT READING 'BATMAN'??....YOU WILL, and SOON!!!

Upcoming FREE SPECIAL EVENTS @ Image Collections
Saturday June 2nd Bread & Honey - FREE COMIC CON
     
Saturday  June 2nd

Bread & Honey - Come DRAW with us before, during & after the B&H Parade

 

Simply, If you aren't....

.....READ 'BATMAN'!!!......

Yes, there ARE 52 new DC titles after the relaunch of the entire DC Universe [...plenty to select your likes from...], but only ONE TITLE has the EXCESSIVELY WARRANTED MOMENTUM to propel nearly EVERY ISSUE into multiple printings....

DC_Reboot_Batman_1Only one title, 'BATMAN'[...the singular titled, unlike 'BATMAN & ROBIN' or 'DETECTIVE COMICS', which ALSO has BAT-'READER'S HEAT' attached to it...], can claim enough fame from it's story-content that other creators are itching with bated breath [not a spelling error, look it up...maybe u(sic) learned something today--strange place 2 have done it; this site...:o] to play in writer SCOTT SNYDER's BAT-World!...

Worth the HYPE, 'BATMAN' has been out-pacing the JIM [X-men] LEE-penciled new 'JUSTICE LEAGUE' title, a feat unfathomed by many considering 'The Mighty Jim' has had over 22 years of super-stardom verses SCOTT SNYDER's virtual ascension in the last year-plus of regular BATMAN work!...

Helping, and by no means any lesser of talent, current 'BATMAN' artist and long-time SPAWN penciler GREG CAPULLO, has the envious position of being one of the first to read the latest 'BATMAN' scripts as they continue to plunge ransack into 'BATMAN: THE NIGHT OF THE OWLS', a crossover with enough 'yin-yang'-ing to keep readers at bay, and at odds with each other....

To say things are looking up for DC's Dark Knight Detective would be a hopeless under-statement, and by OWLS-wing or by crook, 'BATMAN's hooked us as surely now 'The Dark Knight Rises', and with extra movie mileage this is one 'DC-NEW-52' title that'll be hovering with IMAGE COMIC's 'SAGA', atop the BESTSELLERS charts long after DARK HORSE's Star-Wars-Origin 'DAWN OF THE JEDI' and MARVEL's 'AVENGERS vs X-MEN' have rocked comics......

So START READING 'BATMAN' TODAY, as THEN, as spoilers-be-vanquished, we can discuss it, as your friends will want to, 'cause, '"birds of a feather...." you know.... :o)

PS......Snyder's first creator-owned ongoing series, from VERTIGO [a sophisticated critic's-choice off-shoot line of DC COMICS], is AMERICAN VAMPIRE, still going [and picking up LOTS of new readers!] today!  Stephen King is a fan also, and worked with him on it!....

 “This should be agony. I should be a mass of aching muscle - broken, spent,
unable to move. And, were I an older man, I surely would ... ... but I'm a man
of thirty - of twenty again. The rain on my chest is a baptism - I'm born again
... ”
― Frank Miller, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns

-----If I tell you, will you let met go?......- You bet, partner. [...]......- You promised!.....- Nope. I said "you bet."...words by Scott Syder
