W.A.N.D. would be great in the Dr. Strange movie 0

In Thunderbolts Annual #1, the Thunderbolts (Red Hulk, Punisher, Venom, Red Leader, Deadpool, and Elektra) have to take down the True Faery King of the Old Ones who has taken the form of Dr. Strange. The plot here isn't that important. What is important is that in this comic, S.H.I.E.L.D.'s "Wizadry/Alchemy/Necromancy Department" (W.A.N.D.) makes its debut. W.A.N.D. is led by Pandora Peters and her right hand, Todd (who has a Mouth of Madness and Mismemory). W.A.N.D. is a terrific idea, and Pand...

Hulk ex Machina 0

(see the original at http://cobyscomics.blogspot.com/2014/01/hulk-ex-machina.html)I had noticed in a few different places in the Marvel U different little hints at how the time-space continuum was broken, but I never really got the whole back story. I did read the Age of Ultron arc, as collected in Hard Cover, and I've been reading All-New X-Men and Guardians of the Galaxy from their respective #1s, but I guess I didn't put two and two together. In fact, I even started a ComicVine forum to try t...

East of West: The World As It Is 1

(see original at http://cobyscomics.blogspot.com/2013/12/east-of-west-world-as-it-is.html)When I first read Hickman's work on the Avengers, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Then I struggled through his super-massive INFINITY event and it left a bad taste in my mouth. Maybe it was just too big for one writer to handle and that's where he failed. Hickman does great stuff with large events, but the INFINITY event was just too large, I think. East of West, however, was just right. It truly is a great comicb...

Why Ultimate X-Men Number 8 is the Silliest Comic Ever 0

(see the original with pics at http://cobyscomics.blogspot.com/2013/12/why-ultimate-x-men-number-8-is-silliest.html)The issue begins with a look at Cyclops and Wolverine through a peephole. Wolverine is pretending to be a Jehovah's Witness. This page sets the tone for the whole book, and right away we know we're in for a special, silly, X-Men treat. This page is probably one of the funniest moments in all the Ultimate universe.On the next page, we see what's going on on the other side of the pe...

FREEKING PERFECT #1 ISSUE! 0

(see the original at http://cobyscomics.blogspot.com/2013/12/chew.html) Yesterday, I read Chew #1 on my phone while waiting at the doctor's office. I've been thinking about it ever since. I couldn't agree more with squares's review on ComicVine: it is the most perfectest #1 issue to a comicbook I have ever read. Period. I had heard of Chew before, mostly because of the hubbub it caused when it was possibly being made into a TV show on Showtime, until it wasn't, and then it was going to be a mov...

Hank Pym: Bipolar 0

(read the original at http://cobyscomics.blogspot.com/2013/12/hank-pym-bipolar.html)I've been reading through the issues of Avengers A.I. to catch up to issue seven, which is an INHUMANITY tie-in. So far, the book is weird. Really weird. While there are some hilarious moments with the Doombot ("Doom rejects all apologies"), for the most part, I didn't really care about the characters or the story. As a recovering ludditte, the whole "A.I. is a lifeform" thing is too much for me. Reading the aut...
