Sneak Peeks: Marvel Titles Shipping 12.4.08 (Part II)

Courtesy of Marvel, we have some preview pages for titles shipping Thursday, December 4th.

CRIMINAL #7
COVER BY: SEAN PHILLIPS
WRITER: ED BRUBAKER
PENCILS: SEAN PHILLIPS
INKS: SEAN PHILLIPS
COLORS: VAL STAPLES
NOTHING IS WHAT IT SEEMS AS THIS BAD NIGHT COMES TO ITS THUNDERING END!**
The conclusion of “Bad Night” spins a deadly web of lies and murder, as CRIMINAL’s new expanded format keeps the hits coming! What’s left of Jacob K.’s life has been ripped apart by a chance meeting on one bad night. But when all the things he’s been running from come to the surface, we may just learn the Jacob himself is much more than what he seems. And on top of this longer-than-usual length main story, CRIMINAL now features an expanded back-pages section, as well – with articles by Brubaker and other top crime writers, from novelists to screenwriters to comic writers. These noir articles can only be found in the CRIMINAL comics, not in any collections.
Mature Content/No Ads… $3.50

ETERNALS #6
COVER BY: DANIEL ACUNA
WRITER: CHARLES KNAUF & DANIEL KNAUF
PENCILS: DANIEL ACUNA
INKS: DANIEL ACUNA
COLORED BY: DANIEL ACUNA
LETTERED BY: TODD KLEIN
How many Eternals must die before Gilgamesh’s unbridled thirst for their blood is slaked? And how does he expect to ensure that immortals remain dead? As Ikaris grows weary in his attempts to awaken the memory of Philip Stoss, aka Phastos, the absence of Sersi may move him to take drastic steps. Plus, having lost contact with Makari, the Dreaming Celestial has initiated a fail-safe that could mean a spiraling end to all life on Earth! Time is running out, for the Eternals!
Rated T+ …$2.99

IMMORTAL IRON FIST #20
COVER BY: TRAVEL FOREMAN
WRITER: DUANE SWIERCZYNSKI
PENCILS: TRAVEL FOREMAN & RUSS HEATH
COLORED BY: MATT MILLA
LETTERED BY: DAVE LANPHEAR
EDITOR: WARREN SIMONS
Danny Rand’s life–it all comes down to this! The job title may be “Immortal Iron Fist,” but the individuals who take on that mantle are anything but. And after his 33rd birthday, Danny found out exactly why–when he came face to face with the Ch’i-Lin, a malevolent force that kills every Iron Fist at age 33. But why? And how was his predecessor, the long-lived Orson Randall, able to escape it? Danny better figure something out fast, or he’ll be trading in his costume for a green-and-yellow body bag! It’s the pulse-pounding conclusion of THE MORTAL IRON FIST, by Duane Swierczynski (CABLE) and Travel Foreman (ARES)!
Rated T+ …$2.99

MARVEL ZOMBIES 3 #3
COVER BY: GREG LAND & JUSTIN PONSOR
WRITER: FRED VAN LENTE
PENCILS: KEV WALKER
INKS: KEV WALKER
COLORS: JEAN-FRANCOIS BEAULIEU
LETTERED BY: VC – RUS WOOTON
EDITOR: BILL ROSEMANN
The epic battle of Zombie vs. Robot shambles on! All that stands between the flesh-crazed armies of the Marvel Zombies and the entirety of the Marvel Universe is…Aaron “Machine Man” Stack? And if he has to shoot, slice, explode, melt, dissolve, chop, crush, dismember, fry, electrocute, bludgeon, blast, harpoon, and, of course, insult every super-powered cannibal in the Zombieverse, well, that’s just what he’s gonna do. But unbeknownst to him, the Zombie Kingpin has already hatched a fiendish plot to ensure that all of the M.U. will be consumed by an undead apocalypse!

COVER BY: CLAYTON CRAIN
WRITER: PETER MILLIGAN
PENCILS: LAURENCE CAMPBELL
INKS: LAURENCE CAMPBELL
COLORED BY: LEE LOUGHRIDGE
LETTERS: VC’S RUS WOOTEN
EDITOR: AXEL ALONSO
“A CHRISTMAS DREAM”
You’ve been good? Tell that to Santa. You’ve been naughty? Look out for Moon Knight! Christmas Eve. A time for family. A time to dream. For Moon Knight’s sometime paramour Marlene it’s a chance to sit by the fire and dream of a future in which her boyfriend isn’t a borderline psychotic vigilante. But for Moon Knight, it’s just a night like any other — and tonight he’s got his sights on a pair of hitmen who picked the wrong Santa to kill.
48 PGS./One-Shot/Parental Advisory …$3.99

COVER BY: CHRIS BACHALO
WRITER: JASON AARON
PENCILS: ROLAND BOSCHI
INKS: ROLAND BOSCHI
COLORS: DANIAL BROWN
LETTERS: VC’S CORY PETIT
EDITOR: AXEL ALONSO
“AND ON EARTH PEACE, GOOD WILL TOWARD MEN”
It just wouldn’t be Christmas without the Punisher, now would it? There’s no room at the inn for a mobster and his pregnant wife who are on the run from rival gangsters, but lucky for them Frank Castle is in a giving mood. Though keeping them alive won’t be easy, what with three vicious gun-toting wise-guys and a wacked-out pimp named Shepherd all hot on their trail. But then nobody ever said Christmas miracles came easy, did they?

BOP – Vinyl Underground #2
ROW – Immortal Iron Fist #10

Top Of Pile (the comic that I am looking most forward to reading): Criminal #10 is the conclusion of the second story called Lawless. This was another great chapter and it is easy to see why it won Eisner Awards for Best Writer and Best New Series. This Ed Brubaker guy can put together a pretty good story. The ending of Lawless was not what I was expecting, but that is a good thing. Too often crime stories either end with everybody dead or with an ending that the Comic Code Authority guys would be happy with. I’m happy to say that Lawless ended logically. Unfortunately, the next issue of Criminal won’t be out until February while Sean Philips finishes Marvel Zombies 2. However, I’m not complaining because when it comes back, there will be a longer page count. If you haven’t been reading Criminal, pick up the trade of the first story arc called Coward, which is out now. The Lawless trade should be out in time for Christmas.

Bottom Of Pile (the comic that I have high hopes for and I want to take my time and savor it): There’s something that I want to set straight about this title. The writer is Si Spencer who everyone touts as a writer of the BBC series Torchwood. The only problem is, his story was never actually made for Series One and it doesn’t look like it is on the schedule for Series Two. This is a minor point and doesn’t really affect the quality of Vinyl Underground, but in almost everything that I have read about this series, that fact is thrown out there. There are a few similarities between Torchwood and Vinyl Underground, but nothing that could be considered blatant trademark infringement. The first issue entertained me enough to want to really read the second one. The story that is being told seems like it would be better suited as a BBC show simply because of all the references to music. I like it so far and I will be sticking around for at least the first story arc. This book should be read with some Northern Soul or Stax R&B in the background.

Read Of the Week (The best thing that I read this week): I know that this is supposed to be a superhero comic book, but it reads like a Kung-Fu epic. I wasn’t really into getting this title because as much as I liked the old Power Man/Iron Fist series and the Iron Fist mini by Jurgens and Guice, I was done. I didn’t think that there was anything that could be done with the character that could make him interesting again. I was wrong. I am a big believer that the way to rejuvenate superheroes is to strip away all of complexity and focus on their core. It has worked for Batman (who is more detective than he has been in a long time), Hulk (forget the MPD and spy stuff, once he got back to smashing things he started to regain his popularity) and now it is working with Iron Fist. He’s a Kung Fu guy and he should be doing Kung Fu things. Now that he’s back to doing Kung Fu things, he’s good again. Of course it doesn’t hurt to have Matt Fraction and that Ed Brubaker guy writing those Kung Fu things. And David Aja should be the biggest star in comic book art. I never read much by the guy before, but now I’m a fan. The first six issues are collected in a trade called The Last Iron Fist Story, pick it up.

Flattr this!
