It’s that time again, where I tell you what’s really grinding my gears for the week of March 13th, 2019.
Some weeks it’s mostly likes, other weeks it’s dislikes.
So what’s grinding my gears this week?
Facsimile Editions + MARVELous Monday
You know, a couple of weeks ago I covered an old classic Marvel book in my MARVELous Monday article.
I had no idea that they were planning a facsimile of that very book in March Previews.
When Doctor Strange faces a threat to Earth so big the Sorcerer Supreme can’t handle it alone, he calls on two allies from his past: Namor, the Sub-Mariner, and the Incredible Hulk! Can these three powerful individuals find a way to work together to thwart…the Omegatron?! Or will their forceful personalities get in the way of victory? And assuming they survive, is there any chance they’d be willing to make a habit of this? Relive the
issue that united three titans as the Marvel Universe’s greatest non-team – one Doctor Strange would name the Defenders! It’s one of the all-time great Marvel comic books, boldly re-presented in its original form, ads and all! Reprinting MARVEL FEATURE (1971) #1.
That makes me smile!
I’m sure most people love SXSW who come to visit to goto all the panels, shows and such, but for those who live in Austin, most of us despise this time of year.
The traffic for this town is already bad enough, pack on thousands and thousands of more visitors and you just want to leave town instead of sticking around.
Johnny Blaze is Back…. I Hope for Good!
I never jumped on the Robbie Reyes Ghost Rider bandwagon. It just never clicked for me. Maybe it was the style of art. Maybe he just came off as a bit cheesy for me.
So I was happy to see Johnny Blaze make an appearance in Avengers #16.
I hope this is a sign of the original Ghost Rider. We need more original Ghost Rider.
I watched Captain Marvel earlier this morning and I was quite pleased with it. I’d say it’s a 9/10 myself. I thought they did a pretty good job sticking to her origin since they had to skip the whole part of her being Ms Marvel and had to go straight to Captain Marvel.
I must say, this has me pumped more now for Avengers Endgame next month.
That’s all I’m liking and disliking this week. Let us know what’s grinding your gears in the comments.
