Our Word of the Year choice serves as a symbol of each year’s most meaningful events and lookup trends.
It doesn’t sound terribly original but the Japanese movies were quite entertaining for their time and I’m hoping the new adaptation is as well. in commemoration of JJ Abrams’ latest entry into the series’ increasingly forked timeline.
Dark Horse is also releasing the original Lone Wolf and Cub in Omnibus editions this month as well for those of us who like to see where something started. Now, in light of Disney’s much ballyhooed acquisition of Star Wars, as well as today’s announcement of the upcoming television series, let us take a moment to honor those who have devoted such painstaking efforts to codifying the history of a universe inexplicably set in the distant past despite its status as a science fiction mainstay: that of George Lucas’s , and particularly its surrounding Expanded Universe. Butler’s Star Wars Timeline Gold has been the authority on chronology within the Star Wars Galaxy.
I like the idea of a guy who’s all about viruses trying to come up with one that will over ride Logan’s healing ability. And he’s not off to the greatest start with his new X-Force.
Of course the X-Men help him get revenge and apparently some space pirates as well (again WTF? If you can get past some of those oddities this might be a wild and original ride for fans of the Wolverine! He gets branded a terrorist and has to fight his foster daughter, Hope.
And with Disney expanding the franchise to fill the gap between the prequel and original trilogies, and extend it even further beyond, this mainstay of sci-fi nerddom will have its hands full for quite a while.
May the obsessive compulsive data sorting be with you!
MARVEL WOLVERINE: THE BEST THERE IS – THE COMPLETE SERIES OK, this sounds interesting.
A crazy virologist wants to try and kill the unkillable Logan by eliminating his healing ability and taking him out. ) to try and push Logan to his limits and find out what he’s capable of.
It’s a collection of stories that tell Logan’s origins with the Weapon X project, shed some light on his Japanese love interest and her evil father, (why can’t they just have a well adjusted home for once? There’s some big names involved, including Dave Gibbons and Steve Dillon, and it should be interesting to see what a British take on the Hulk is like. And apparently it’s popular because they keep putting them out.
CASTLE: CALM BEFORE THE STORM (HC) When I first saw a Castle comic book I kind of chuckled, showed a friend who also thought it was funny and then moved on. Based on the TV series starring Nathan Fillion, (the only reason to watch it), these are stories written by the fictional Richard Castle that would be talked about in the show. DEADPOOL: KILLUSTRATED This, very clearly, is not going to be canon as far as the continuing saga of Deadpool is concerned.
Like I said, I don’t think this is canon by any means, but it could be fun and we all need a little fun sometimes. I mentioned last month how I liked the idea of releasing two volumes simultaneously and I stand by that. 1: Born To Kill hits stands the same day in paperback format. 6: WILD GAME For some reason I thought Sweet Tooth was done after Vol. On paper it sounds kind of ho-hum: post-apocalyptic world, boy who kind of looks like a deer so I started thinking like Road Warrior meets A Boy And His Dog, but it’s really much better then that. The guys really good at getting genuine emotion, humor and a decent helping of action and making all of it feel totally right. 18: WHAT COMES AFTER Oh Negan, what have you gotten yourself in to…?
