Last year we saw the marriage of the “Merc with the Mouth”, Deadpool, to his lady love Shiklah, and how they fought against the forces of Dracula to secure Shiklah’s throne as well as defeat the reign of the vampires. But what would have happened if Deadpool was UNABLE to defeat Dracula? In an alternate reality, what would be the outcome if Shiklah was left to fight Dracula and his armies of monsters on her own? WELL, Secret Wars, being an event filled with “WHAT IF?” scenarios, is here to give us just that!

This is the hardest post I’ve ever had to write. As you can probably guess from the first half of the title, this will be my last post on Moar Powah. I’ve been writing for this site for four years, and in that time I’ve certainly improved as a writer, but more importantly I was allowed the chance to collaborate with some amazing peers. Everything I did on this site was au gratis, but the real payment was the camaraderie of my fellow writers.

I’ve been thinking about leaving for some time now. Not for any one reason in particular, but a confluence. I love talking about and reviewing comics, but as it stands it’s just become harder for me, not easier. I find myself becoming more critical of comics as I read them, trying to find a number in my head before the issue even ends. I’ve bought and read some comics I knew I wouldn’t like, simply so I could review them.

But I can’t dwell on the negatives. I still love comics, and think retiring from reviewing them regularly may help strengthen that love. That’s why, as a final post, I want to talk about Green Arrow.

Silverwolf: Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of Silverwolf Suggests! I’m joined today by Starshine to talk about the first volume of my favorite horror comic series, Locke & Key. Starshine, could you please give our readers a brief summary of Locke & Key: Welcome to Lovecraft?

Starshine: Sure! We first meet the Locke family on arguably the worst day of their lives. While Tyler, Kinsey, and Bode are out of the house, Sam Lesser kills their father and beats their mother on the search for a key. However, Sam ultimately fails and is incarcerated and what remains of the Locke family heads to the island of Lovecraft to live with their paternal uncle. However, as they begin to rebuild their lives, sinister forces are at work to unlock some truly dark magic.

Spider Verse team up cover

Spider-man is arguably the most popular comic book character worldwide. Thus, when Marvel announced 2014’s Spider-verse event, which promised to bring together every Spider-person ever, hype ensued. Over the course of several months and a few dozen issues, event architect Dan Slott and company pushed the Spider-family through a wild ride that showcased just how varied and enduring a character Spider-man truly is.

Recently, I got my hands on the Spider-verse hardcover, which collects the majority of the event (for some reason they left out Edge of Spider-verse which features the origin of the popular Spider-Gwen, but I digress). With this massive tome now fully finished, I decided to share my thoughts on Spider-verse.

Rage of Ultron Cover

Marvel’s line of original graphic novels (OGNs) saw their most recent release a few months ago with Avengers: Rage of Ultron. While the title does resemble the comic book event (and the more recent movie which had nothing to do with said event), Rage of Ultron is a story in its own right.

I was intrigued when Rick Remender and Jerome Opena were announced as the team behind the project, as I have a great deal of respect for the work both men have produced. Still, I’ve never been that interested in Ultron as a character, and the last Marvel OGN I read (Avengers: Endless Wartime) was a major let down. Did this graphic novel impress me, or is it best left buried in the annals of comic history?
