Not Quite a Comix Review
I’ve been pretending to work hard at grad school for the last few days, but I’ve been keeping up on my comics. Here are three good things to pick up.
1. Deadpool- The Merc with the Mouth gets his own ongoing series! Watch as he signs up with the Skrull Empire… in Pool-o-Vision!
2. Magneto: Testament- Marvel is finally publishing the definitive origin and history of Magneto. This is a very serious work because of the established character history. I’ll have a longer piece on this one, soon. This book is excellent, though. Go read it.
3. Old Man Logan- In yet another dystopian future, Wolverine has been so defeated and so humbled that he swears never to raise his hands in violence again. This one’s a little odd, in that it’s the future but the old west. But, hey! It’s worked before. It kinda reminds me of Unforgiven, which is definitely a plus.
