Anywho, I picked this book out of the throng for literally no other reason then it was the first one I saw and it directly ties in to the new movie. They’re from 1979, and, I would assume, onward and they’re taken from the weekly Hulk Comic that was created around the time the live action series was gaining popularity.
It’s a collection of stories that tell Logan’s origins with the Weapon X project, shed some light on his Japanese love interest and her evil father, (why can’t they just have a well adjusted home for once? There’s some big names involved, including Dave Gibbons and Steve Dillon, and it should be interesting to see what a British take on the Hulk is like. And apparently it’s popular because they keep putting them out.
That’s even more then what they put out two months ago when billionaire playboy Tony Stark made his return to celluloid exploits. HULK: FROM THE MARVEL UK VAULTS Ok, Marvel redeems its shame less capitalizing with this book.
It feels a little bit like overkill to me, but what do I know? Apparently most of these stories have never been seen by American eyes before.
As for what the book is about…well, try this on for size.
Killing the marvel universe wasn’t enough because Deadpool is gunning for major literary characters now.
Dark Horse is also releasing the original Lone Wolf and Cub in Omnibus editions this month as well for those of us who like to see where something started. Now, in light of Disney’s much ballyhooed acquisition of Star Wars, as well as today’s announcement of the upcoming television series, let us take a moment to honor those who have devoted such painstaking efforts to codifying the history of a universe inexplicably set in the distant past despite its status as a science fiction mainstay: that of George Lucas’s , and particularly its surrounding Expanded Universe. Butler’s Star Wars Timeline Gold has been the authority on chronology within the Star Wars Galaxy.
While the movies we all know and love or tolerate only cover a span of about twenty years, the rich collaborative history lent to it by novels, video games, and, yes, comics books (hopefully the TRO editorial board will have more on is involved.) Would you believe that this singular project has cultivated its own devoted community?
SWTG features a podcast, reviews, and even its own radio station.
And with Disney expanding the franchise to fill the gap between the prequel and original trilogies, and extend it even further beyond, this mainstay of sci-fi nerddom will have its hands full for quite a while.
CASTLE: CALM BEFORE THE STORM (HC) When I first saw a Castle comic book I kind of chuckled, showed a friend who also thought it was funny and then moved on. Based on the TV series starring Nathan Fillion, (the only reason to watch it), these are stories written by the fictional Richard Castle that would be talked about in the show. DEADPOOL: KILLUSTRATED This, very clearly, is not going to be canon as far as the continuing saga of Deadpool is concerned.
If you have to read everything the Merc with the Mouth is in, though you’re going to get this regardless.
SRP: 14.99 Contains: Deadpool Killustrated #1-4 Amazon, Indigo: June 25, 2013 TFAW, MCS: June 12, 2013 DC Preacher Book 1 Speaking of Steve Dillon…I love these books. And why did it take six years to continue collecting these issues? DC is also releasing two volumes of Stormwatch and two volumes of new Superman shenanigans. Anyone who’s familiar with Jeff Lemire probably all ready knows about Sweet Tooth and his, well, sweet tooth. For those of us who wait for the trades we’ll finally get to see what Rick and Jesus have planned for the baseball bat wielding, soliloquy spouting tough guy.
