Marvel Noise Episode 46

It’s an episode sans music! Why? Because the host is not firing on all cylinders, that’s why. So to make up for it we hear from Pat Loika TWICE and there are TWO voicemails from Carlos. Mike brings us a Mighty Marvel Movie Minute and Chris pirates another Marvel Tales. All this and SkrullWatch, too!

Titles mentioned include X-Factor: Layla Miller, Captain Britain and MI: 13, Guardians of the Galaxy, Uncanny X-Men, Secret Invasion, Young X-Men, Secret Invasion: Inhumans, and Iron Man.

Marvel Noise Episode 33: Short But Satisfying

Invincible Iron Man 1We’re short and sweet this week. Okay, the sweet may be my exaggeration, but this is a shorter episode than you’re used to. Because Backwards Dave was kind enough to send in a Bring ’em Back and Carlos called in with comments on New Avengers #40, you are rewarded with my ramblings for a few minutes. Somehow, that doesn’t seem fair…The Quick and the Dead

Comics mentioned this week include Invincible Iron Man, X-Factor: The Quick and the Dead, Young X-Men, Iron Man: Viva Las Vegas, Avengers/Invaders, Logan, Mighty Avengers, and Secret Invasion.

It’s the second of three standalone stories, as CRIMINAL’s new expanded format keeps the hits coming!

In previous arcs of Criminal we’ve met the man who killed him, and we met his only surviving son… now meet TEEG LAWLESS, thief, murderer, and all around bad mother-#@$%er. Fresh from two tours in Vietnam, Teeg arrives home in 1972 carrying the baggage of war, a drug habit, and an unpaid debt to a local mob boss that’s now long overdue. *“Before the Living End”* tells how he goes about finding a way out of his problems and back into the life of crime.

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 have become a popular piece of the CRIMINAL package, and are something that can only be found in the comics, not in any collections.

Three months back on the job, and they’re already coming out of the woodwork. The bad guys you expect. The gangsters and the hoods with old axes to grind. They all come with the territory. But the heroes – them, you don’t expect. Popping up to give you the eyeball and make sure you’re toeing the line. Their line. Spider-Man and his wisecracks…Frank Castle, the angel of death himself, telling you he’ll be keeping an eye on you…even the fugitive Captain America, with a word to say about crashing aircrafts into the sides of buildings in New York City. And now, this other thing. Someone is out there. Someone hitting the old haunts, scenes of the old crimes. Leaving messages. Leaving bodies. Someone who knows you. Someone who crushes steel and pulls off limbs. All to get your attention. Someone out of your league! Plus: Some people come to New York City looking for a knight in shining armor. Or just a warm body who can help you through the lonely hours. Be careful what you look for. Hot crime novelist Duane Swierczynski (The Blonde) and Jefte Paolo bring you the story of three women whose lives intersect in strange and deadly ways, two predators who stalk the city streets at night, and one shock ending you won’t see coming. No matter how many bad dates you’ve had. Collecting MOON KNIGHT #7-13 and ANNUAL #1.

Garth Ennis concludes his seminal run on PUNISHER — in style. Thirty-five years ago, the Fifth Cavalry disgorged their troops on an isolated Vietnamese hilltop and was met by a scene of utter devastation. The final body count ran to well over seven-hundred — almost 200 hundred of them American soldiers. Standing alone amidst the carnage, a sole survivor: Captain Frank Castle, who years later would be known as the most fearsome vigilante to walk the Earth: The Punisher. Now the Punisher is about to face his stiffest test: He’s hunted big game in his day, but none as big as this. Five men with unlimited resources. Men who’d put anything between themselves and the Punisher’s bullet. Men who know exactly who he is…and how to fight him.

PENCILS: JOHN ROMITA, DICK AYERS, BILL EVERETT, MORT LAWRENCE, and BOB POWELL
The Atlas Era Hero Revival continues with the adventures of the comics’ most famous trio of Communist conquering heroes: Captain America, the Human Torch and the Sub-Mariner! Beginning with the Big Three’s anthology adventures in Men’s Adventures, we then dive headlong into Captain America’s complete 1954 solo series. Illustrated by Bullpen legend John Romita in some of his very first super hero stories, you’ll see Cap and Bucky fight Fifth Columnists, Commie spies and even the Soviet Electro! Next up, it’s the Human Torch and Toro! Returned from his slumber by an atomic bomb, the Torch has rejoined his young sidekick in a battle to clean up threats as amazing and entertaining as vampires, killer robots and his 1950s nemesis, the Vulture. Their crime-fighting adventures even take on a global purchase, stretching all the way to the 38th Parallel and Communist Korea! And finally, for a quick taste of what’s to come in Atlas Era Heroes’ next volume, comes an assortment of Bill Everett’s lavishly drawn tales of the lord of the Atlantis, Namor the Sub-Mariner. Considered by many to be the definitive take on the character, Everett’s ’50s Sub-Mariner is nothing less than treasure from the deep! We’d be remiss to leave you without a bevy of historical bonuses, including a rare Human Torch tale that went unprinted for more than a decade, original artwork, Atlas Era house ads and an introduction by Hero Revival scholar extraordinaire Roy Thomas. Collecting MEN’S ADVENTURES #27-28, CAPTAIN AMERICA #76-78, HUMAN TORCH #36-38 and MARVEL SUPER-HEROES #16.
