Hello everyone and welcome to another exciting edition of Silverwolf Suggests! Each month, I select three different comics for a friend that I think she or he will like. The friend then selects one of the three, and, if they like, I’ll purchase it for him or her. Later, we discuss the comic, the results of which are shared here!

This month, I’m joined by my friend Oliveblair, who read Saga Volume 1 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples at my recommendation. It’s a highly regarded comic, and so I was very intrigued to hear her thoughts on it.

Marvel has been the centerpiece of much controversy amongst comics fans in recent months. Between their supposed rebooting of the comic universe and the many “revelations” brought forth by recent event comics, some readers tend to wonder if Marvel’s writers have truly gone off the rails. This question is becoming more prevalent as Marvel has announced the upcoming DEATH of Deadpool , their fan-favorite mercenary and goofball. Deadpool has heralded one of the most thought-provoking, deep, and mature titles of recent years, and seeing Gerry Duggan’s run come to a close is definitely a great shame.

However, as we march to Deadpool’s demise, what is Deadpool up to as of late? What trouble is he finding himself in that may lead to his death? Well, the short version…bad shit…the long version? Let me clue you in.

With services like Loot Crate and Nerd Block proving wildly popular, it was only a matter of time before a company stepped up to provide a similar service focused specifically on comics. Each month, Comic Bento sends subscribers a box of comics centered around a theme; for February, the theme was “Feminine Mystique.” Check out my unboxing video, and let me know what you think!

Two series down, and two to go. The Star Wars comics produced by Marvel have been a ROUSING success, in both quality and sales for Marvel these past 2 months. Between the personal tales of the Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Vader, and the continuing tales of the crew of the Millennium Falcon, these two books have offered great stories and insight into these beloved characters.

Marvel continues this trend by delving into the mindset of Princess Leia Organa, and her perceptions and reactions to the events which unfolded in Star Wars Episode IV. In A New Hope, Leia’s home planet of Alderaan was destroyed by the Empire’s Death Star, completely wiped clean from the universe. Losing one’s home planet is OBVIOUSLY more than likely to upset one’s mindset and cause them to break down, but we never saw this in the movie, in fact she remains rather calm even after she sees her planet destroyed. This new title delves into her thoughts and give a back story to how Leia comes to grips with her loss. How does she do it? LETS FIND OUT!

The Spider-verse event has finally come to a close, our heroes have prevailed and now rest in their own respective worlds. The inheritors are vanquished, the multi-verse is safe, and the Spider’s are free to roam across the web of life and destiny. But where does that leave our heroine, Gwen Stacey? What state is her world in after being forced into recruitment by the Spider-army? Apparently, things have not been going very well.

In Gwen Stacey’s Spider themed world, some aspects of the world are quite similar, in that J. Jonah Jameson is the mayor of NYC and a Kingpin rules the criminal underground. Some things, however, allow this world to stand on its own: the Kingpin is not the obese Wilson Fisk, but instead that title is Given to the blind man MATT MURDOCK!

Another interesting twist is that after Police Chief Stacey is relieved of duty and he is replaced by a hard-nose loose cannon cop who doesn’t play by the rules named FRANK CASTLE! What’s more, Castle is a dirty cop who is in the mayor’s pocket, trying to find evidence linking Spider-woman (Gwen Stacey) to a string of crimes. Lets see what Gwen has to deal with in the premiere issue of SPIDER-GWEN!

Yes, we’re going to be asking the same question everyone else asks just after the Academy Awards, because every year it becomes more and more pertinent. As far as the industry is concerned, it’s all a political play that’s as much a shot in the dark as it is a calculated move. So should we keep watching it? Should they even keep having it?
