STAFF PICKS :: Giant Size Little Marvel A vs. X #1 :: WEDNESDAY, JUNE 3, 2015

June 03, 2015 By: Rico Renzi Category: Uncategorized

HEATHER’S PICK :: Giant Size Little Marvel A vs. X #1: Alright, Marvel, you’ve figured out another way to get me to read about this Battleworld place.  I adore Skottie Young’s covers so when I get a whole book filled with all this cuteness, I’m sold.  I can’t even decide who is the cutest! Maybe Beast because he looks like a little blue puppy? Although Magik is a sweet little butt kicker, too!
I’ll take this little piece of Battleworld and an Avengers versus X-Men street food battle! This is a great all ages take on the current Secret Wars event.  No prior knowledge needed!
giantsizelittlemarvelavx1cover
Bonus Pick: Squirrel Girl #6: This book is at the top of my pile each week it is released.  I love this book! From the hilarious use of social media by its characters (@hulkysmashy, could it be any better?!?) to the tiny jokes at the bottom of the page (serious spit takes going on) to an amazingly relatable super hero (I want to hang out with Doreen), this book has won a hard fought battle to become my favorite comic.  That’s saying a lot for a character I had barely even heard of until recently.  Team Squirrel Girl, you are the best!

STAFF PICKS :: A-FORCE #1 :: WEDNESDAY, MAY 20, 2015

May 19, 2015 By: Rico Renzi Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

staff_picks heather_staff_picksHEATHER’S PICK :: A-FORCE #1: So Secret Wars, things blow up, worlds collide, Heroes had a really cool variant cover.  You now have the sum total of my knowledge of the wars of secrets.  That’s my comics confession, I rarely do the big events.

In spite of that, I can’t wait to pick up A-Force #1. Marvel’s got my number on this one.  A comic loaded with female superheroes written by one of my personal favorites, G. Willow Wilson. (Side note: Are you reading Ms. Marvel?  If no, then why the *$@! not?!? Pick up a trade or two when you’re in this week for singles.)

Written by Wilson and Marguerite Bennett with gorgeous art by Jorge Molina and Craig Yeung as well as colors by Laura Martin and Matt Milla, out of Secret Wars (I think) comes Battleworld, part of which is protected by a team of lady Avengers.  Based on the cover and previews of interior pages, the team includes some of my favorite Marvel characters: She-Hulk,  Medusa,  Hellcat, Jubilee,  and SpiderGwen.   There are a ton of other great characters in case our favorites don’t coincide.  This looks like a good one to pick up, especially while so many titles hit pause for the summer.
