Prejudged! 02.02.10

Oh! Hey! Fancy meeting you here. Me? Well, I was just about to wade through this week’s upcoming comic book covers. Care to join me? What’s that?… Yes, I am well aware of how big a nerd I am. Now, come! Sit down as I tell you about Jeph Loeb’s new title…

Ultimate Comics X #1, cover by Art Adams:

Very little is known about this ominous little title from Mr. Loeb. All we know is what we can gather from mere images like this, where we spot a young teen with bonelike knives protruding from in between his knuckles. Also we see that he may not be the friendliest among the young men in campus. What strikes me as a mite odd though is that this boy’s backpack looks awfully bulgy for someone who doesn’t look like he knows what to do with a textbook. Indeed, we know very little of what to expect from this new series, but what we do know is that art from Art always looks awesome. Not unlike the art on…

God Complex #3, cover by Michael Avon Oeming:

This new series has been off to a good start, with a somewhat classic tale of mythic proportions. It’s not too outrageous to picture the Gods of Olympus as Corporate Executives, and in God Complex, Mr. Oeming showcases such concepts. Along with a story about a damsel and a battle with Hercules, this comic book title is shaping up to be an enjoyable read with colorful characters and the light and comical art style of Michael Avon Oeming, which is perfect for balancing out the dark themes in Greg Rucka’s…

Blackest Night: Wonder Woman #3, cover by Greg Horn:

Do not fret, little one, for try as they may, DC has not made this cover Un-Prejudged!able. We have only been deprived of a preview of another image of Wonder Woman as a scantily-clad Star Sapphire (Redundant? Perhaps.) There is a simple Prejudged!ing formula to apply in these situations; Greg Rucka (Great Writer) + Nicola Scott (Great Artist) = Great Issue.

So, there, lies before you, a trio of comic books, Prejudged!

P.S. If this week’s article seems a bit off to you to, don’t worry. It’s just that I’ve been playing massive amounts of Super Metroid (Yes, the SNES game) and it’s apparently done some damage. I’ll have the game beat before next week’s Prejudged! (probably) and everything will be back to normal.

Prejudged! 01.05.10

Welcome to our second installment of Prejudged!, where we judge the book by its cover. This week sees the release of 2010’s first batch of comic books. We have Marvel starting off the new decade with a bang with the first issue of SIEGE, the penultimate issue of World of New Krypton, DC’s first couple of resurrected titles in Suicide Squad #67 and Weird Western Tales #71, and… well okay, I’ll admit it’s a pretty light week. But hey, it’s a lot better than last week’s releases. (FYI; last week only had one release, Blackest Night #6)

First up is the cover of SIEGE #1 by Oliver Coipel.

According to Marvel, nearly every big crossover event over the past 7 years (House of M, Civil War, Secret Invasion, etc.) has led up to SIEGE, which means that they (Bendis) had it all planned out from the start. Regardless of whether that’s true or not, it’s still good to see a Marvel book where you get the “Good Guys vs. Bad Guys” story again. The “grey-area” has been almost suffocatingly kitsch by now that turning off “Friendly Fire” mode would be a welcome change. And looking back at what the Big 3 (Iron Man, Cap and Thor) have been through since Disassembled (Thor died but came back, Cap died but we’re still waiting on the comeback, and Iron Man’s brain-dead), this event feels like the big payoff to all of that. Also,the 4-issue length of the main SIEGE title should keep this series at a fun pace. And also, yes, I do feel that it’s necessary to spell out SIEGE in all Caps. 😀

Next up to bat is the cover to Blackest Night: Wonder Woman #2 by Greg Horn.

The second issue of Wonder Woman’s Blackest Night tie-in has our heroine go full zombie. Of course, we already saw all this in Blackest Night #5 and #6, except this time we’ll see WW do what these Black Lanterns do best, which is talk a lot. It’s interesting how Greg Rucka gets a chance to write Wonder Woman in this light (or lack thereof) seeing as he’s always had a good grasp of the character. Also, it’s good to see Mera on another book since there’s been a huge shortage of anything Aquaman in the past few years.

Lastly, we have the cover to Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #6 by David Lafuente.

There’s something about David Lafuente’s style that works so well with Bendis’ writing in Ultimate Spider-Man. The Ultimate Marvel Universe (or at least Spider-Man’s part of it) has always felt fresh and full of energy, and that translates seamlessly through Lafuente’s pencils. There’s such a constant yet fluid sense of motion in the artwork that I often feel the need to catch my breath in between panels. But then, the fatigue dissipates with Justin Ponsor’s vibrant yet soft colors. Bendis’ snappy dialogue coupled with Lafuente’s energetic art help make Ultimate Spider-Man a refreshing breath of fresh air well worth its $3.99 price tag.

And that’s it for this week’s Prejudged! Feel free to leave your comments or any suggestions on future releases you feel needs a little Prejudgement.
