With Age of Ultron set to kick-off next week I thought I’d take a look back at the first issue Marvel released for this as part of Free Comic Book Day in May 2012.

After a strong opening couple of issues (#1 & #2) we fall further into Hellboy’s passed life in issue #3 of Mike Mignola’s triumphant return to art & writing duties.

While the AvsX event may have not impressed everyone it certainly lead us through to the Marvel Now creative team reshuffle which has been a much more consistently impressive affair and with someone like Brian Michael Bendis heading up two of the X-books, there’s a world of potential & possibilities at his disposal.

A comic book that ties into an up and coming DC game has all the early indications of being a typical attempt at a marketing exercise….where there’s no real gain or effort expected from what seems to be a throwaway release to get the game name out there……and I have to admit I was on the fence on whether to get this title or not………in this case I caved, I bought it and read issue #1.

The first two issues wowed me (#1 & #2) in this 8 part series and having passed the halfway mark I’m still engrossed in a story that seems to have harnessed a feel of familiarity and the unknown in equal measure with mystery abound surrounding the last words of Matt Murdock aka Daredevil has been the catalyst for an investigation by The Daily Bugle’s own Ben Urich.

Hopefully now that the dust has settled from the events of those last few issues of Amazing Spider-Man in 2012 – we can settle into the new world where Spider-Man is a very different title to read and relate to
(I’ll say Spoiler alert but if you don’t know what’s happened up to this point then you’ve probably been living in a cave or never seen a comic book in your life)

I was on the fence on whether to pick up this title when I saw it advertised – where I enjoyed the Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe 4-parter that was all but blown away with a fairly so-so vibe I got from the Marvel Now on-going release…..that being said with Cullen Bunn involved I thought I’d give it a go.

A big spoiler for this new arc from Dark Horse may well be that Hellboy is dead……but then I’d doubt it would be much of a surprise whether you’ve heard or not….it’s the kind of title where you know that anything can and does happen.

With the first 3 issues of this series wowing the Comic Anon gang and beyond…..it was with a mix of child-like excitement and a “damn it’s the last issue” approach but I ordered the last issue as soon as it was available, eager to see how it finished and kinda bummed that it has to end at all.
