This week saw the UK release of the latest addition to Marvel’s Cinematic Universe with Doctor Strange making the step from comic book panel to cinema screen but would the introduction of another lesser-known character work as well as the previous introductions of Guardians of the Galaxy & Ant-Man?
Old Man Logan made a welcome return as a tie-in to marvel’s Secret Wars event and the 5-parter saw Brian Michael Bendis team up with artist Andrea Sorrentino & colourist Marcelo Maiolo.
It seems like I’ve always been a fan of Tim Sale & Jeph Loeb and I’m sure I’m not alone in that but back in 2008 they released an issue #0 of their new addition to the colors books they had a run of with Marvel….finally in September this year the series started properly with an extra-sized opening issue that included the content from that issue #0.
With Star Wars Episode VII set to hit screens this week it seems fitting that the Marvel/Star Wars titles would hit the list of highlights.
After a series of fairly mediocre events from the Big Two…..Marvel kicked off Secret Wars earlier this year with Jonathan Hickman & Esad Ribic teaming up to create the Universe-altering mini series.
Marvel have been pretty consistent with their Cinematic Universe but 2015 saw them bring two of their characters to the small screen thanks to Netflix…..and the results were astounding.
The penultimate movie in Marvel’s Phase 2 has had more than it’s fair share of hype but how would Avengers: Age of Ultron compare to some of those previous movies?
