Issue 233: EastSiders and the Marvel/DC binge and purge!

Share

Steele talks to the multi-talented, adorable, and all-around nice guy – Kit Williamson! Creator, writer, and star of the immensely popular LogoTV exclusive web series, and upcoming web comic, EastSiders. We discuss the series,  tank tops, Kit’s Serenity/Firefly connection, his favorite comics, and what’s in store for season 2.

Plus Steele then discusses his current reading disorder. Binge-ing on Marvel comics and purging most of his DC subscriptions. It’s a sad day when even The Flash is trash!

Be sure to check out EastSidersTheSeries.com, We Will Bury You by Brea and Zane Grant, and The Young Protectors by Scott Woolfson.

Steele reviews two new #1s: X-Men and The Wake!

Share

I’m always on the lookout for new #1s (insert watersports fetish joke here). I like to find books that will be my new obsession. I would estimate that 40% of the new series’ I pick up result in me reading the first 6 issues and of those only 10% make it to my pull list. In May I picked up several new #1s. The Movement (review here) and The Green Team (review here) didn’t hit the mark for me although I am giving each 3 issues to reel me in. The Black Bat was decent and I am curious to see where it goes but it needs to be amazing in issue #2. And I quit The Bounce before the end of the first issue (it was so lame). April only yielded one good one (Jupiter’s Legacy) and March had Guardians of the Galaxy (which I LOVE!) I also really liked Avengers: The Enemy Within #1 but that is a weird cross-over event and I can’t find what additional books it’s continuing in. With that track record I was dubious about picking up two new #1 titles on Wednesday but I think I may have stumbled on something good.

Avengers punching X-men! The Final Kick to the Crotch!

Share

Sweet baby Jesus in the manger! We are finally at the end of the mega-super-awesome(?)-crazy event of the year, Avengers vs. X-Men. This has been going on since April. A six month crapathon that tested my patience and actually convinced me to drop a few Marvel titles in the process. To put it in perspective, during this six-month event CERN discovered/created the Higgs boson, we landed a rover on Mars, the Olympics came and went. Dick Clark died. Chris Hemsworth starred in four movies. Chad Ochocinco married and divorced. And Leifeld thankfully quit DC.  Before I review the final issue let’s take a quick stroll down memory lane and do a “previously on”…

Behold my veiny member!

Now, let’s get down to business. Read the rest of this entry →

Avengers punching X-Men! Part 10

Share

Here we are the penultimate AvX book. The 11th in the series. If these were James Bond films this one would be Moonraker. The awful movie where a crazy ego-maniac obsessed with power is hell-bent on destroying every human on earth and re-populating it with a hand-picked superior race. I think that says it all.

By the way, remember the big reveal at the end of the last AvX book where the kewpie doll alien known as THE WATCHER showed up in the last panel and presumably it was…awesome? Well, I guess The Watcher had had enough and high-tailed it outta there because it’s nowhere to be seen in this issue. Read the rest of this entry →

Avengers punching X-Men! Part 9

Share

When we last spoke the Phoenix PENIS (that’s Piotr, Emma, Namor, Illyana, and Scott) was down to PIES because Wanda sucked Namor out of the PENIS. And then we had just the ES or EFSS if you want to use last names because Piotr and Illyana got into some sibling rivalry and ate each other out of the PIES. So that leaves us with the aforementioned EFSS which is fitting since so far I have given most issues a letter grade of F so EFSS seems about right.

This issue was a quick read; partly because there wasn’t a lot of excessive dialog and partly because I wasn’t paying close attention since I was half-reading it and half watching a documentary about teenage magicians on Netflix called “Make Believe” that was actually very good and had more interesting magic than the X-Men currently do.

We start with Iron Fist draping Hope over his shoulder while trying to escape from Cyclops but Scott corners them with his glowing thong. Read the rest of this entry →

Avengers punching X-Men! Part 8

Share

So I made a deal with the devil. I told him that if he gave me a giant wiener that I would take any tit-for-tat he wanted to dole out. Sadly, it was actually a Dirt Devil™ and I got a foot-long all-beef Coney Island wiener instead. I should have been more specific. Luckily, my punishment was also off-the-mark which is why I have to read the AvX series to completion. Here we are at 9/12 of the way through (that’s ¾ right? I’m not good at fractions.) And luckily this issue is pretty decent. It seems that every third issue doesn’t completely suck so they have a better batting average than every Chicago Cubs player (True. I looked it up.)

That being said- you can find all previous ApX reviews here if you want to catch up. Now, on to the punching…
