    • Massive Marvel Now! Sale

      5 years ago

      Hey, its Jake. Back with another comixology sale. (Man, it's like this guy works for them or something) Seriously, guys send my checks already

      So this one's kinda cool/massive in that its a lot of the first arcs of the Marvel Now! (Marvel's less reboot-y version of the New 52) for 99 cents an issue. I'm gonna list a couple of series I find interesting/am currently reading/am going to pick up/I really wanted a third slash.

      www.comixology.com/Marvel-Now-Sale/comics-collection/2242

      Avengers: The vanguard book of the Marvel universe written by Jonathan Hickman, drawn by Jerome Opena and Adam Kubert, and colored by Dean White and Frank Martin, respectively. I'm going to be picking up the first three (of six) issues, primarily because its illustrated by one of my favorite combos in comics, Opena and White. Seriously gorgeous art. I've never really read a Hickman script before but if its as good as they say, I might end up buying the next 3 as well.

      Superior Spider-man: Consistently one of the most entertaining comics I'm reading right now. Written by Dan Slott, drawn by Ramos, Stegman, and Camunoli. I can't say enough good things about this title. If I did, it would probably take me three or four 8-page articles featured elsewhere. Short synopsis: A bad guy being a good guy while still being kind've a bad guy. Continuity synopsis: Doc Ock is now inhabiting Peter Parker's body. Yes. Seriously. Don't look at me like that. It totally works and its wonderful in an Oh-my-god-how-can-they-do-this-this-is-awesome kinda way.

      Thor: God of Thunder: Now this is a fantastic comic. Jason Aaron brings a very metal approach to the God of Thunder, given life by the wonderfully cinematic pencils of Esad Ribic. Essentially, Thor's found that there's something killing the gods of the Marvel Universe. Something he's fought before. Something he'll fight at the end of everything. Seriously, Marvel, you can have that teaser for free . Non-dramatic synopsis: Young Thor, Current Thor, and Old Thor fight something that can kill gods.

      Young Avengers: Gillen on scripts. McKelvie and Wilson on arts. Young adults actually acting like young adults. Experimental storytelling at its finest. I don't really need to say more. It's gorgeous and witty, like a certain guy with an RT profile I know...

      The sale runs until January second so you've got some time to scrape together some holiday cash.

      So one of the cooler things about this sale is that, as a part of Comixology's 12 days of free comics (today's the last day btw) today's free comic is the Marvel Now! .1 issue which contains preludes for Young Avengers, FF (Future Foundation btw), Secret Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, Nova and "Cable and X-Force." So you could actually pick up this free comic and then see if any of those teasings tickle your fancy and pick up there first arcs on sale.

      Alright, enough from me. Enjoy your holidays everyone and happy reading

      So this just dropped today

      I am beyond hyped for this. Warren Ellis has been nothing but fantastic in everything I've read from him (He wrote the hell out of Moon Knight during his short (and arguably superior) tenure on Secret Avengers a couple of years ago. Shavley might be the best grim and gritty artist in the biz and an amazing arc on Jeff Parker's early Thunderbolts run. Jordie Bellaire is quickly showing everyone why colorists are just as critical as pencillers. Everything she touches, from Journey Into Mystery to Three to Pretty Deadly, is made exponentially better by her presence. Plus, the fucking suit suit is back. Arguably one of the coolest new looks in comics.

      Is it weird that I'm more excited for this than I am for the Doctor Who Anniversary, being done with finals, or even the next-gen consoles?

      Fuck no it's not.

      Ma boi is back!!!

      So there's a big Thor sale going on over on comixology.com in honor of the new movie (which is fantastic btw. really fun and entertaining. Everyone should see it). They've got a bunch of issues for just 99 cents but if I had to recommend a particular set it'd have to be 611-14, written by none other than my perpetual idol, Kieron Gillen. Gillen had taken over the title several issues prior when J. Michael Straczynski left the title, but this was his first arc that wasn't spent wrapping up JMS's plots or embroiled in an event.

      Brief Plot scenario: Thor must save the Asgardian dead in Hel from the Disir, Bor's cannibalistic Valkryies, that Loki (before his death) loaned to Mephisto.

      Extremely simplistic synopsis is extremely simplistic. It's a really fun arc and I highly recommend it.

      (That's not a thing. Stop trying to make fetch happen.)

      Ehyo, so I finally put up the third chapter of that Mass Effect fanfic. You know the one that was last updated 4 months ago. That's some great turn around. This guy just exudes work ethic. Anyway, this is the last of the flashback chapters (kinda) and its told from the POV of the surly Megan Laforge. At this rate, come back next year to see the next chapter. www.fanfiction.net/s/8816544/3/Tales-of-the-N7-The-Hearts-of-Rogues

      Oh, I suppose I should throw in some soundtrack/mood-setting music, shouldn't I? Should I? I should.

      Sorry, I don't know a lot about the game. So I don't think I'd be that good at roleplaying it.
