I took my happy butt to Phoenix this weekend and took some really awesome and awkward selfies with some super cool cosplayers with myself as X-Men’s Jubilee! If you haven’t seen my series yet, check out my previous sets (Part 1 and Part 2) form Anime Conji! If you see yourself, please share so your friends may see!
Note: These have NOT been edited so you may enjoy in all the uneasy glory.
In case you didn’t see it yesterday, here is the first 10 minutes of he latest Marvel movie. The clip shows off some awesome fights from Captain America, Black Widow and various S.H.E.I.L.D. agents as the raid a ship run by the villain Batroc.
This just makes me want to see the movie even more!
Picking up comics this week? Here are my top picks for Marvel, DC and Indies are as follows. Minor spoilers ahead:
Secret Avengers #1 (2014):
Ales Kot, Micheal Walsh and Matthew Wilson
Let me start with this: nip-slips and funny censorship’s in the first of a newer series from Marvel. Half the cast is naked this whole issue. And I’m loving it. With team members Black Widow and Spider-Woman trying to ‘relax’ at a Russian Spa, throwing ex-boyfriend (of both) Hawkeye into the mix while three missions kick off at the same time makes for an incredibly hilarious and action-packed issue.
Kyle Higgins and Russell Dauterman
This is the second to last issue of the incredibly popular Nightwing and also marks talented author Higgins’ last run with the character after almost three years with the title. Full action and a quite meaningful inner monologue, Nightwing questions his true purpose and his role as a hero. With the cover consisting of every villain he’s faced in the New 52, this issue will appropriately lead into the last issue of the DC crossover Forever Evil.
Legend of the Dark Knight 100 Page Spectacular #2:
(W)Joshua Williamson, Charles Soule and Frank Hannah
(A)Dexter Soy, Drew Johnson, Marco Turini, Dennis Calero and Wes Craig
Various and interesting adventures about the Dark Knight. From DC Comics: In “I Hate When He Does That,” Bruce wonders if his youthful tour of Thailand with Alfred might be coming back to haunt him. Then, in “Riddler in the Dark,” can the Dark Knight solve a trail of E. Nigma’s riddles before it’s too late? Finally, Frank Hannah contributes a trio of stories of how a trauma in Bruce Wayne’s past impacts his present and the future of Gotham City’s criminal set, illustrated by some of comics’ hottest artists.
Image/Skybound-Manifest Destiny #5:
Chris Dingess, Matthew Roberts and Owen Gieni
Lewis and Clark continue their expedition of the uncharted United States with their exploration team. The team fights one of their comrades who has turned into what can be described as a flora monster. Basically a plant zombie. As the team dives deeper into the forest in search of, what they call, the root, they find a lot more than they bargained for.
Robert Kirkman, Ryan Ottley and John Rauch
Last months’s Invincible brought us some head-splitting (literally) violence between main character Mark and one of his violent alter-dimensional selves. One who happens to be a brutal dictator of the Earth. This month, we see Invincible devise a plan to rid the tyranny over this dimensions Earth. Writer Robert Kirkman promises Invincible has many dark times ahead. Eep!
