Valiant Comics started promoting their summer crossover “Armor Hunters” a few months back, and the anticipation continues in this second half of the event prelude.

With high hopes for this continuing series, let’s blast off for X-O Manowar #24!

Unity is arguably my favorite comic from Valiant Entertainment, which is really saying something since their titles are at the top of my read pile week after week. Now that a new arc has started, the team has truly begun to coalesce with a core of Livewire, Ninjak, X-O Manowar, and the Eternal Warrior. With adventure ahead, let’s take a look at Unity #6!

A review copy was provided by Fred Van Lente courtesy of Dynamite Entertainment.

Last month, I had the pleasure to check out Magnus: Robot Fighter #1, part of Dynamite Entertainment’s re-imagining of Gold Key’s classic character.

Now that Magnus has found himself a prisoner of the robots of North Am, what will the future spell for this karate-chopping ex-schoolteacher? Let’s rev up our gears for Magnus: Robot Fighter #2!

It’s hard for me to believe that it’s been almost three full years since I reviewed Captain America: The First Avenger and almost two full years since I reviewed the comic Captain America: Winter SoldierStill, as I predicted years ago, the next Cap film would adapt this story, not least of which because of a (seemingly to some viewers) minor scene of a certain character meeting his “death” offscreen.

Now we’re within the tail-end of Marvel Studios’ “Phase Two,” as we build towards Avengers: Age of Ultron. But enough about the past: let’s take a look at Captain America: The Winter Soldier!

Elessar: I’m Elessar and I think you and I have met before…

Silverwolf: Yes…probably somewhere? Anyway down to business! Today we’re here to talk about what is, arguably, the best run X-Men has ever had: Astonishing X-Men by a sort-of kind-of famous guy Joss Whedon. I think he directed some successful movie at some point?

Aquaman and the Others #1

Aquaman has long been considered the biggest joke superhero in existence. Thanks to his stint on Super Friends, the character is often relegated to a humorous roles in parodies of comic story lines. Though public perception of Arthur Curry may still be mostly negative, Aquaman has never enjoyed a greater fan following and greater acclaim than during the past three years as Geoff Johns revitalized the character. Crafting a new mythology for Aquaman and Atlantis was one of Johns’s greatest accomplishments, and one of the most popular concepts involves a super team Aquaman led prior to joining the Justice League known as The Others.

Now, thanks to Aquaman’s rising popularity, Aquaman and the Others is a proper ongoing series. Did this series float to the surface or sink with the flotsam? Let’s dive into Aquaman and the Others #1!
