One of Marvel NOW’s most anticipated books releases this week, Avengers #1 by Jonathan Hickman and Jerome Opena. I must say that I’m super excited for this book. Hickman quickly made Fantastic Four one of my favorite books, so it’ll be great to see what he can do with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. From DC we see the Rotworld story continue with both Animal Man and Swamp Thing releasing their 15th issues. Now for some covers.
Animal Man #15
Here are my favorite covers from the current week of comics.
The Mighty Thor #19
Cover by Alan Davis
Not everyone likes him, but I’m kind of a sucker for Alan Davis art. I especially like the way that he draws Thor, and this cover is another great rendition.
Cover by David Aja
I love David Aja’s work, and his covers during his run on Immortal Iron Fist remain some of my favorite. I was pumped to learn that he would be working with Matt Fraction again, this time on Hawkeye. As this cover shows, he doesn’t disappoint.
Variant Cover by Skottie Young
It’s Skottie Young, and for me personally that’s really all that’s necessary for this cover to be on the list. It’s a variant cover celebrating Spidey’s 50th Anniversary, and it’s fantastic.
Let me just start by letting you know that when I started this series, I didn’t intend to post so many so fast. Alas, it seems that people like them, so as long as I keep getting them sent my way, for the time being, I’ll share them with you!
This is going to be a two-fer. Thematically, they’re very similar. They’re also both definitely strange.
The first one, the Birthday Party, was sent to me by my good friend and Rocky Horror Legend, Larry Viezel. I don’t think anything needs to be said aside from “Just watch”. The second one, as you can imagine, was a straight link off the first.
To be honest, if “Spider-Man 3” were more like that, I think it would have been HUGE.
This next video isn’t anywhere NEAR as strange, it’s just odd mostly due to the facts that a) They’re at a pool? b) Tell me that Iron Man doesn’t look weird with his huge head?
…and there you go!
Is it just me, or does comic-book artist Zeb Wells (Spider-Man, Daredevil: Battlin’ Jack Murdock, Fantastic Four/Iron Man: Big In Japan) look quite a bit like basement dwelling über-genius Lazlo Hollyfeld from the movie “Real Genius”?
