Prejudged! 07.07.10 “Entry Wounds – Marvel Edition”

Welcome to Prejudged! Entry Wounds, where we look at the week’s upcoming releases that make great jumping on points for new readers. This is a huge week for Marvel, with 7 new number ones. Anyone looking to get into comic books or just looking to jump onto new titles will have a big selection of books to choose from.

Scarlet #1

SCARLET #1
Written by Brian Michael Bendis
Art by Alex Maleev
Cover by Alex Maleev

This new title marks Bendis’ return to creator owned series work. Scarlet tells the story of a woman who starts a modern American revolution. If you’re into tales about strong women who can kick a lot of ass and look good while doing it, then Scarlet is definitely a pick up. Also featuring stunning art from long-time Bendis collaborator, Alex Maleev, who alos brings us this jaw dropping cover. Bendis always puts out his best work when he’s just doing his own thing, like Power, Alias, and Jinx, and this should be no exception.

Steve Rogers: Super Soldier #1

STEVE ROGERS: SUPER SOLDIER #1
Written by Ed Brubaker
Art by Dale Eaglesham
Cover by Dale Eaglesham

Need more Steve Rogers in your life? I do. And who better to write him than the man who killed him, Ed Brubaker. After replacing Norman Osborn as the world’s top cop, Steve is the busiest guy in the Marvel Universe right now, so you can expect him to pop up in about every book in Marvel. What? Osborn did it. Why can’t Steve? Super Soldier also features acclaimed artist Dave Eaglesham, fresh off his pitch perfect work on Fantastic Four, so expect big things. Good cover from Eaglesham too. I don’t remember Steve ever wielding a gun though.

Shadowland #1

SHADOWLAND #1
Written by Andy Diggle
Art by Billy Tan
Cover by John Cassaday

From Solicitation: “Matt Murdock Dared Evil.” Yeah, I know. It’s a terrible pun. But this story has been brewing a bit in the main Daredevil title, and it all comes to a head in Shadowland. Daredevil wages all out war on Bullseye, and he has an entire legion of ninjas to do his bidding. Stepping in to prevent war are Marvel’s street-level heroes, the Punisher, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Moon Knight, and the amazing Spider-Man. If you just want a bunch of superheroes all in one book, Shadowland #1 is a great book for you.

Avengers: The Children's Crusade #1

AVENGERS: THE CHILDREN’S CRUSADE #1
Written by Allan Heinberg
Art by Jim Cheung
Cover by Jim Cheung

Series creators Allan Heinberg and Jim Cheung bring back the Young Avengers in this 9-issue maxi-series. With Wiccan’s reality-altering powers beginning to rival that of the Scarlet Witch’s, he sets out on a quest to find her that spans the Marvel Universe and will pit him against the Avengers. This will hopefully address long-standing issues about Wanda’s disappearance and maybe even the mysteries behind House of M and the infamous “No More Mutants”. Heinberg’s original series was very well received by both fans and critics alike, and Jim Cheung interiors are as rare and as awesome as they come. Looking forward to this.

Prejudged! 05.17.10

Welcome to a very special edition of Prejudged! This week sees a plethora of new #1 issues from the Big Two, and I thought this would be a great opportunity to get people to jump onto a new book. This edition of Prejudged! is very “NEW READER FRIENDLY”. Let’s kick off with a look at the return of Legion Vet Paul Levitz.

Legion of Super-Heroes #1

LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #1

Written by: Paul Levitz

Art by: Yildiray Cinar and Wayne Faucher

Cover by Yildiray Cinar and Wayne Faucher

Anyone who’s ever been interested in diving into the 31st century and joining the Legion of Super-Heroes in their adventures across the future of the DC Universe will want to jump straight onto this new #1 from legendary Legion squire, Paul Levitz. Coming off the heels of Action Comics: Superman and the Legion of Super-Heroes and Final Crisis: Legion of 3 Worlds, we see the return of the original, post-Infinite Crisis Legion of Super-Heroes team in full form. The Legion is one of the very first super-hero teams in comic book history and the first to ever tackle themes of racism and homosexuality. This series also has a Green Lantern Corps second feature. If you have room for another team book on your pull list, I highly recommend picking up this title.

Atlas #1

ATLAS #1

Written: Jeff Parker

Art by: Gabriel Hardman

Cover by: Terry Dodson

Marvel’s Rat Pack is back! The Agents of Atlas, a ragtag team of a spy, a spaceman, a siren, a killer robot, a mermaid, and a gorilla-man, has to be the strangest team in the Marvel Universe. When Jimmy Woo discovered that he was the heir to Genghis Khan and a powerful secret criminal organization called the Atlas Foundation, he saw to achieve the foundation’s goals through more passive means while still maintaing his cover. With the guidance of his advisor dragon, Mr. Lao, Woo travels the globe in search of adventure. This title is definitely for comic book readers who are looking for something different, and you don’t get any more different than Atlas.

Zatanna #1

ZATANNA #1

Written by: Paul Dini

Art by: Stephanie Roux

Cover by: Stephanie Roux

The backwards-talking, Mistress of Magic finally lands her own ongoing series. Brought to us by Batman: The Animated Series producer and writer, Paul Dini, this new series sees the many magical hijinks of everyone’s favorite fishnet stocking wearing heroine. (Okay, maybe it’s a tie between Zatanna and Black Canary.) Personally, the biggest draw of this book is the wonderful art of Stephanie Roux. With Amanda Conner leaving Power Girl, it’s good to see Roux on art duties for another of DC’s most beloved female heroes. Trust me, the artwork alone is reason enough to pick this up.

Avengers #1

AVENGERS #1

Written by: Brian Michael Bendis

Art by: John Romita Jr.

Cover by: John Romita Jr.

I’ll leave this to the solicitation:

THE HEROIC AGE IS HERE! There came a day! A day unlike any other…where two of Marvel’s top creators teamed up for the very first time to create a bombastic new monthly Marvel comic that not only ushers in the Heroic Age of Marvel Comics but unleashes onto the world the most blockbuster Avengers team ever! Who will answer the call? And will they assemble just in time…because Kang the Conqueror is here from the future. And wait till you find out why…! Bonus back up feature: the oral history of the Avengers, part one. A brand new illustrated look at the Avengers in a way you have never seen before by series writer Brian Michael Bendis.

Nuff Said.

Come back next week for another bombastic edition of Prejudged!
