STORY: JAY FAERBER
ART / COVER: SCOTT GODLEWSKI & RON RILEY
SEPTEMBER 10 / 32 PAGES / FC / T / $3.50
Welcome to Copperhead, a grimy mining town on the edge of a backwater planet. Single mom Clara Bronson is the new sheriff, and on her first day she’ll have to contend with a resentful deputy, a shady mining tycoon, and a family of alien hillbillies. And did we mention the massacre?
Writer JAY FAERBER and the art team of SCOTT GODLEWSKI & RON RILEY bring you this gritty 24th Century Western with an extra-long first issue for the regular price of $3.50!
I’ve been a fan of Jay Faerber’s work since 2007’s Dynamo 5, I’ve gone back and checked out his other material, and was truly satisfied with the choice. So, I was excited when I saw Faerber’s latest book finally on shelves, and despite the ‘been-there-done-that’ aspect to the overall story, Copperhead #1 ties strong characters to a cool backdrop and has a ton of potential, but it’s the art that is the true standout in this book.

This week Marvel has decided to put out a special five dollar .1 issue of the Avengers. Is this a necessary part of Hickman’s great epic? No. Is it worth the five bucks? Most likely not. Is it a good read, though? Actually, it is a really good read, but only if you like introspective thought and character development more than action. Continue reading
Review: Future’s End Batman #1
Plot by Scott Snyder
Written by Ray Fawkes
Art by ACO and FCO Plascencia
Last week we saw how the five year time shift has affected Batman in the extremely disappointing Future’s End Detective Comics. So does the Batman proper title fare better or is it just as bad as some of these other tie-ins? Well, good news. Its actually pretty good and serves as a prequel to Snyder’s and Murphy’s clone story from Detective Comics #27. Continue reading

Now I know what you are thinking, who cares about Ultimate Marvel? Well for one JulesTrue does, and I’m here to let you know it’s pretty frickin awesome if you give it a chance. Once a week I’m gonna hit you with a story arc from the Ultimate Marvel Universe starting from the beginning. I’ll spotlight on whats brilliant, what’s not so brilliant, and what might be a good idea for the 616!
This time I’m diving into the second title to join the Ultimate Universe! The Success of the recently launched Ultimate Spider-Man gave the folks at Marvel a hunch they were onto something. The whole translation of classic characters into the modern age seeing how they would cope in this new digital age was brilliant. So they figured which characters would translate just as well for a whole new generation of readers. Well the answer was easy especially since the success of Fox’s X-Men movie which had created a big buzz around the characters once again. However as we all no there isn’t exactly an easy jumping on point for the Children of the Atom. So Marvel did the next best thing to rebooting the X-Men and created the Ultimate X-Men!. From the Creative powers of Mark Millar, Adam and Andy Kubert!

Hello, Geeks, and welcome to a very special installment of Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot. I say it’s special because I’ve decided to get back to the spirit of what Top o’ the Lot was originally conceived to be, namely, the completely weird, slanted, and biased rundown of some trivially specific and arbitrary list of geek goodness. So, I’ve decided to do a series of comic book lists all revolving around characters and color, and what better way to spotlight all of the colors of the rainbow, and kill a Roy G. Biv’s worth of ToLs in a single day, then running down the colors in order. So, without further ado, we’re thankful we’re halfway through, Orange is hard (again!), and Green is so awesome, in Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot Comic Book Characters by Color: Green!
