Whorin’ the Comics – 24 June 2009
Only a couple of comics pique my interest this week and as always the full list can be found here. Hit the jump to find out the Media Whore guide for what you should reading this week.
A couple of weeks ago I talked about the new Aliens comic that has been released by Dark Horse comics. Well now it’s the turn of Predator to have a new comic book series and it looks like it’s war. Predator tells the story of a civil war raging on Earth, in the background of this war two tribes of Predators are going to head to head to wipe each other and nothing is going to get in there way. I’ll be intrigued to see how Predators going to war works out, I’ve always enjoyed having one bad-ass Predator hunting loads of adversaries from the shadows, I’m hoping that all out Predator war will work the series is only 4 issues long so we won’t have to wait long to find out.
The sixth and final part in what has turned out to be a really enjoyable tie-in to the amazing television series Fringe. Taking place many years before the television series, the comic focuses on a young Walter Bishop and his lab partner William Bell as they study fringe science and they’re debate about ethical and moral consequences of what they do. What’s great about the comic is that the fringe experiments that they work on in the comics end up featured in the series. It’s a really well done tie-in and fans of the show should check it out.
Wolverine Noir #3
I’ve only just heard about this comic and it sounds really interesting. Set in 1937 New York, Private Investigator Jim Logan as he tracks down a vicious thug named Creed who has kidnapped Logans brother, Dog. Sounds like a really interesting premise to me, I think that Wolverines character really suits the gritty noir detective story and I’ll be picking this up when it comes this week.
Venom: Dark Origin TP
For those of you who that don’t know the story behind Venoms origin this story tells it from the beginning. I think Venom is one of the more popular characters from the Marvel universe because he’s just pure evil when compared with most of the villains who have all helped out other superhero’s at one point or another to furthur there own needs, Venom just wants wants to kill everyone regardless of their allegiances. Should be a good read for anyone who wants the back story of one of the most iconic villains in comics.
That’s it for this week, what are you guys going to be picking up?
