Deadpool Might Actually Be Good: An Xmas Miracle?

Gimmicky as all hell. Most likely pandering to the hardest of the hardcore basement dwellers. You know what? Good for you, Marvel Fox & Ryan Reynolds for going for it. This is like 50% going to be a giant turd but if you can make me laugh at the tail end of a :60 spot that’s a pre-promotion for 11 more days of further pre-promotion…I’m giving you the benefit of the doubt.

After the jump, the (or, more likely, one of) posters of the movie.

Trailer Park: All the Upcoming Comic Book Movies You Can Shake a “Meh” At

I’ll see them all, but the only one that won’t be accompanied by a weary sigh is Deadpool.

Deadpool

Still can’t believe that A) this actually got made and b) with a hard R rating.

Suicide Squad

Why does the Joker have so many terrible tattoos?

Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice

X-Men: Apocalypse (leaked SDCC ’15 buttcam version)

Don’t worry, only 53 more to go!

Now Wade, Don’t Lose My Number, ‘Cause You’re Not Anywhere, Where I Can Find You

Anyone know what comic this is from?  This would make the PERFECT panel to blow up, frame and put over my  couch (ok, my parent’s couch). I’m thinking joint Mother’s Day/ Father’s Day present. So we’ve got some time, but not TOO much. They are going to be psyched. Let me know in the comments.

This Week’s Comics Haul – Gonna Break It Down/ To the Nitty-Grit

Random Thoughtz ( a.k.a. my new rap psuedonym):

– Wait,is Detective Comics involved in “Death of the Family”?

– Part of me wishes that “Rotworld” was the new DC status quo and everyone & everything really were dead.  That would be super dark.

Sweet Tooth is over this issue or next and all I can say is “Good! I’m glad!”. Jeff Lemire is a HEARTBREAKER; I was reading Essex Country on the plane to St. Lucia and just started crying. I’m going to cry NOW just thinking about it. DAMN YOU JEFF LEMIRE.

Daredevil: End of Days is a dark, dark mystery and I digs it the most.

Deadpool. gets poo’d on pretty regularly here (and if not here, then silently, in my mind) but I think this re-boot with Brian Posehn doing some of the writing duties could actually return this character to his cool, funny roots.  BUt if it’s all just thought bubbles than this book can go screw.

Defenders is over. Bow your heads in SHAME for not supporting this clever, ingenious, truly weird book.

Iron Man #1 – Now here’s what I don’t get. Is this a new-new series? Like, from scratch? Or just a convenient re-numbering but a continuation of the previous series? With the Iron Man series that just ended, Tony had completely peaced out from Earth and went to go play golf on the Moon with Aquaman or something. So is that still the score? INQUIRING MINDS & WALLETS WANT TO KNOW.

Shadowman – Can Valiant keep it’s streak going?

Animal Man – I think this issue each of his limbs turn into completely different animals. Should be interesting!

– P.S. Don’t forget Double Barrel #6! Best indie going today? YES. (Well, this or Very Near Mint )

AvX: Consequences is surprisingly good! Also, check out the final panel from issue #4

 

3 bad brothers you know so well

Magneto, his purple underwear and his stable of ladies have had it about up to here with your bullshit and now it’s time to get down to business, partner. Yee-haw, Master of Magnetism style.

Well, He Does Have A Point (or Six)

Relevant or not, Wolverine certainly seems to be in more monthly books than any other Marvel character. Though both Deadpool & Spider-Man are having a go at the title.

Wouldn’t it be amazing if, one month when Logan is in space in the Wolverine & The X-Men book, he wasn’t also in a dragon-infested tunnel halfway to Japan? Then again, a month is a long time. Maybe he’s in space from the 4th – 9th then ends up in the dragon tunnels from the 16th – 23rd? With an all X-Men hands on deck softball game on the 13th? Continuity, you are a vexing and fickle concept!

Guess Who’s Back? Back Again?

Huzzah! After an endless X-crossover, an energy force with a bad attitude is merging once again with a human host to create a Cyclops man-thong destroying dark god; indeed, it looks like the Marvel U. will once more graced with the Dark Phoenix. May she also eat overlong annual “events”, the rotten bastards who have cancelled both NextWave AND the current iteration of The Defenders, whoever dreamed up Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe, all extraneous X-books, Wolverine’s ever shifting backstory and Peter Parker’s annoying new sidekick.
It's Dark Phoenix, bitch

Whomever transmogrifies into the Dark Phoenix this go round, I’m pretty sure this will be their theme song:

After the jump, a one panel summation of why NextWave was/is completely amazing.
