Prejudged: Second Chances (10.20.10)

Welcome to Prejudged: Second Chances. This week is surprisingly big on releases with a ton of titles. Here are three that have either been beaten up by fans and critics alike, have a not-so-beloved character, or wasn’t even published to begin with. Fortunately, in comic books you can always get another whack at it.

KICK-ASS 2  #1
Written by MARK MILLAR
Art by JOHN ROMITA JR.
Cover by JOHN ROMITA JR.

Love it or hate it, all the attention from the movie can only help get Kick-Ass 2 more readers. The forums were flooded with comments about both the film and comic, from too violent to insanely fun. There’s no denying that Mark Millar knows how cause a stir, and this new volume promises more bone-breaking, bloody fun from Dave Lizewski’s exploits as Kick-Ass. This new volume also features ass-kicker Hit-Girl more prominently, and we’ll likely see much more super hero wannabees following in Kick-Ass’ blood-stained footsteps. Aside from all that there’s really no telling what’ll happen next in this wildly unpredictable series. John Romita Jr. alone makes this worth it.

HULK#26
Written by JEFF PARKER
Art by GABRIEL HARDMAN
Cover by ED MCGUINNES

SPOILER ALERT: Yes. There’s another hulk. He’s red. He’s the Red Hulk. “Rulk”. And this is his Avengers initiation. But instead of a paddle he gets a sweet, refreshing spinkle of Mjolnir across the face. Jeff Parker puts (!!SPOILER!!) the former Gen. Thunderbolt Ross (!!SPOILER!!) through the gauntlet, first pitting him against the Invincible Iron Man in the last issue, and now throws him in the ring with our favorite God of Thunder, and Thor’s probably still pissed about that time Rulk snatched Mjolnir from him. This title has been a notoriously fun book to read and just gorgeous to look at, with artists like Ed McGuinnes,  Arthur Adams, John Romita Jr., Frank Cho, and now the talented Gabriel Hardman. If you ever thought this character was stupid, here’s your chance to really find out.

VERTIGO RESURRECTION #1
Written by WARREN ELLIS, BRIAN AZZARELLO, GRANT MORRISON, GARTH ENNIS & others
Art by JIM LEE, PHIL JIMENEZ, BERNIE WRIGHTSON, & others
Cover by TIM BRADSTREET

During Warren Ellis’ short run on Hellblazer in 1999, he wrote a one-shot story in response to school shootings in the United States in the 90’s called “Shoot”. And then, prior to the release of Hellblazer #141 (Ellis’ story) the Columbine High School massacre happened. Due to the incident, DC execs asked Ellis to rewrite the issue. Refusing to do so, Ellis quit DC and the story was never published… Until now. Vertigo Resurrection #1 brings us Warren Ellis’ controversial yet unpublished tale, “Shoot”, along with other never before seen stories from the Vertigo archives from creators like Grant Morrison, Garth Ennis and Brian Azzarello. If you plan on getting any book this week, make it this one.

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.
