Prejudged! 05.25.10

It’s another big week in comics and Prejudged! is here to shed some light on a few of them.

Secret Avengers #1

SECRET AVENGERS #1

Written by: Ed Brubaker

Art by: Mike Deodato

Cover by: Marco Djurdjevic

Marvel’s Heroic Age is in full swing with this week seeing the debut of Steve Rogers’ Secret Avengers. Moon Knight, Black Widow, Nova, War Machine, Beast, and Valkyrie. I don’t recall an Avengers team as badass as this. With Brubaker and Deodato on board, now it’s the heroes’ turn start breaking some heads. Although I hope Deodato doesn’t give War Machine “ass armor” like he did for the Iron Patriot.

Mystery Society #1

MYSTERY SOCIETY #1

Written by: Steve Niles

Art by: Fiona Staples

Cover by: Ashley Wood

If you’re a sucker for underground cults and such, you might want to jump onto this new series by acclaimed horror writer Steve Niles. Based on the solicitations, the Mystery Society are Nick Hammond and Anastasia Collins, who like to spend their time and money infiltrating secret bases like Area 51. I’ve never read anything that mashed up Horror with Espionage before, and Mystery Society should be interesting.

Green Hornet #4

GREEN HORNET #4

Written by: Kevin Smith

Art by: Jonathan Lau

Cover by: Alex Ross

This title has been surprisingly good. It’s good that Kevin Smith turned the Green Hornet and Kato into legacy characters. Female Kato is a very nice touch too. The artwork by Jonathan Lau is solid and captures the mood of Green Hornet’s world. Anyone who was a fan of the original TV series should definitely pick this up. Also, if you can, grab the one with the J. Scott Campbell cover.

Power Girl #12

POWER GIRL #12

Written by: Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti

Art by : Amanda Conner

Cover by: Amanda Conner

Here it is. The last issue of Power Girl for Palmiotti, Gray, and Conner. It’s very sad to see this team leave this title, especially Amanda Conner’s art. I really suggest that DC should collect this entire run into one big hardbound edition, complete with Palmiotti and Gray’s script and Conner’s sketches.

So, that’s it for this week’s Prejudged! See you next week, True Believers!

Tres Komikeros 43

John and Alex team up to bring you reviews of Brave and the Bold #32, Green Hornet: Year One #1, and Siege #3!  After a round of quickshots, the boys discuss the rumor about Evans being Captain America and then go serious to discuss the trend of violence in comics and how it hurts the industry.

The Tres Komikeros are back, people!  Look grateful!  EJ, Alex, John skip the number 13 to bring you an oversized episode 14, making up for last week’s hiatus.  The boys review the conclusions to DC’s Batman R.I.P. and Marvel’s Secret Invasion and check out a local indie entitled Trese!  The rest of the episode is a Marvel bonanza from the quick shots to the panel discussion about Dark Reign, so DC fans, wait til next week.  Lastly, be warned that this episode has a lot of spoilers.  Don’t say we didn’t warn ya!  Enjoy.
