Prejudged: The Writers Strike – Marvel Edition

Welcome back to a new season of Prejudged! to go along with your new season of Tres Komikeros. This edition will feature Marvel’s rising stars in the writing department; Rick Remender, Jonathan Hickman, and Jason Aaron.

UNCANNY X-FORCE #1
Written by RICK REMENDER
Art by JEROME OPENA
Cover by ESAD RIBIC

Introducing the new mutant black ops team of Wolverine, Archangel, Psylocke, Fantomex, and some other obscure character who rarely appears in a comic book… Dead-something… Remender takes a swing at the mutant world of the Marvel Universe along with long time collaborator, Jerome Opena. This team has tons of potential for greatness, with 2 viable funny men, and one really hot ninja. This is also one of those titles where you get to see Wolverine get his claws real dirty, and with Rick Remender on the wheel there’s little doubt about how much fun this new series can get. Plus, it’s good to be able to give that other character some time in the spotlight. What’s his name? Something-pool? Yeah.

ULTIMATE COMICS THOR #1
Written by Jonathan Hickman
Art by Carlos Pacheco
Cover by Carlos Pacheco

Featuring the untold story of the beginnings of Ultimate Thor, Ultimate Loki, and the rest of Ultimate Asgard, this mini-series by rising star Jonathan Hickman and fan-favorite Carlos Pacheco should keep you occupied enough while you wait for the Thor movie to come out. There are tons of Thor titles to choose from now to help fill you in on everything you need to know about your favorite Norse God of Thunder, and in Hickman’s very capable hands, we should be in for a treat in this title. Also, between Pascal Ferry, Chris Samnee, and Carlos Pacheco, the God of Thunder’s universe looks as good as ever. It’s a good time to be Thor fan.

WOLVERINE #2
Written by JASON AARON
Art by RENATO GUEDES
Cover by JAE LEE

Wolverine goes to hell in one of the most interesting concepts for the character in the past few years. It’s easy to see that Jason Aaron is the best person to write Wolverine, and considering how many stories the character has been in throughout the years, Aaron has come up with inventive new situations and messes to throw Logan in, and this time sending him to the depths of hell the meet the masses of Hand ninjas and Hydra henchmen he’s gutted throughout his long lifetime. I’m sure you’re asking yourself why you never thought of that before too. Also, how awesome is that cover by Jae Lee?

Tres Komikeros 26

tk026

Don’t worry, ladies!  EJ, Alex, and John are back and cockier than ever.  Fresh from their hiatus in which they soaked up some R and R, enriched their mojo, and generally just got on with their lives, they’ve realized that they missed each other.

Admit it.  You did too.

This week’s reviews include the hottest books of recent weeks, including BLACKEST NIGHT #1 and #2, ULTIMATE AVENGERS #1, and BATGIRL #1.  After a modified quick shot round, the boys discuss summer events and what the Big Two are doing right and/or wrong with the yearly events.
