Phase Two of Marvels series of movies kicked off in a similar way to Phase One – with an Iron Man film and after some pretty impressive trailers and glimpses of The Mandarin and Pepper in the latest armour designed by Tony…..I was fairly hyped……enough to book tickets for a midnight showing.
It’s all go this week with some interesting titles kicking off, some finishing up, some movies on offer AND Free Comic Book Day 2013 to look forward to this Saturday – GOOD TIMES!

The much talked about, much-hyped team-up of Mark Millar & Frank Quitely hits with #1 of this latest title from Image. Millar, Quitely AND Image – sounds like a winner before we open that issue but does the title deliver what we’d expect??

The April release of Oblivion sees Tom Cruise step back into the sci-fi genre but with a very different approach to his previous roles in the likes of Minority Report and War of the Worlds – as the high action set-pieces have given way to a much steadier paced film. Perhaps not to everyone’s liking but this definitely brings with it a lot of positives. (more…)
The usual mix of new titles and ongoing’s keep coming again this week with DC releasing a mass of wraparound covers on their titles.

Issue #5 of the so far impressive Lou Scannon arrived on my doorstep a few weeks back and somehow it seemed to slip through my “next-to-read” pile as I drowned in an influx of new issues. Wall-to-wall “must-reads” could stand in the way no longer as the intrigue of the creative teams Facebook comments “It’s very different” aimed in my direction had me wary of what to expect.
Quite a few interesting new releases starting this week other than the two above but there’s more continuing titles too that I’m keeping an eye on.
