    April Comic Books / Cómics de abril


    I am passionate about comic books. And that’s pretty evident if you’ve seen my blog before. At last, the time to publish my best stories has come. And I need you to do it. So please check out this link and don’t forget to make a pledge. Thank you!

    Los cómics son mi pasión. Y eso es bastante obvio si es que le dan un vistazo a mi blog.  Por fin, ha llegado el momento de publicar mis mejores historias. Y para eso los necesito a ustedes. Así que por favor revisen este link para que puedan colaborar. ¡Gracias!




    It sure took me a while but I just finished reading all of my April comics. I must say I’m surprised at how good Uncanny Avengers turned out to be, which is way I’ve already reviewed it. Of course, Young Avengers continues to be my favorite Marvel series, and this third issue was so awesome. This month Secret Service comes to an end with a very peculiar outcome, and Invincible Universe begins, with a first issue that has seduced me faster than many of the superhero books I’ve read recently (plus Nauck's art is top notch). Todd, the Ugliest Kid on Earth concludes this month, and I’ll probably review the entire miniseries, and now Über begins: I enjoyed this opening chapter tremendously. Matt Kindt had already impressed me with the zero issue of Mind MGMT and re-edition of the first issue is just mind-blowing, this is easily one of the best series of 2012. But not everything is about happy endings (or beginnings), because as of April 2013 Hack / Slash is officially dead. After almost 9 years, this thrilling series about slasher films, homicidals and supernatural gore is now done. I feel very sad to see it go... First Hellblazer, and now Hack / Slash. Damn, talk about crisis in the comic book industry… Anyway, without further ado here are April comics as per solicitations:

    Me tomó más tiempo de lo normal leer todos mis cómics de abril. Debo decir que estoy sorprendido por lo bueno que ha resultado ser Uncanny Avengers y por ello le he dedicado una reseña. Por supuesto, Young Avengers continúa siendo mi colección favorita de Marvel, y este tercer número fue lo máximo. Este mes Secret Service llega su fin con un desenlace muy peculiar, y Invincible Universe comienza con un primer número que me ha seducido más rápido que muchos cómics de súper-héroes que he leído recientemente. Todd, the Ugliest Kid on Earth concluye este mes, y probablemente comentaré la miniserie completa, y ahora empieza Über:  disfruté muchísimo con este capítulo inicial. Matt Kindt ya me había impresionado con el número cero de Mind MGMT y la reedición del primer número es alucinante, de lejos es una de los mejores títulos del 2012. Pero no todo son finales (o comienzos) felices, porque desde abril del 2013, Hack / Slash está oficialmente muerto. Después de casi 9 años, esta emocionante serie sobre films slasher, homicidas y gore sobrenatural termina. Me entristece que desaparezca… Primero Hellblazer y ahora Hack / Slash. Demonios, ahí está la crisis de la industria del cómic… De todos modos, sin más preámbulos aquí están los cómics de abril:

    FASHION BEAST #8 WRAP CVR (MR)
    DOLL anhela revisitar su pasado pero el mundo ha cambiado. Las memorias desnudas del pasado colisionan con la dura realidad de la guerra y la desesperación. Y nadie puede anticipar el destino de CELESTINE desde el interior de la ciudadela de la moda.

    FF #4 
    Es el día de San Valentín en el edificio Baxter. Pero ¿por qué esto trae problemas para SHE-HULK? ¿Y por qué la culpa es de BENTLEY 23?

    HACK SLASH #25 CVR B FRISON (MR)
    Es la batalla final, y será a muerte. No todos sobrevivirán en este sangriento desenlace que marca el fin de una etapa épica. 

    INVINCIBLE UNIVERSE #1
    Luego de "La muerte de todos", Dinosaurio ha dejado su marca en el mundo. ¿Pueden los héroes del universo contener el daño producido? 

    MIND MGMT #1 1 FOR 1
    Un brillante relato sobre recuerdos perdidos, la agencia de espías psíquicos de Gerencia Mental, su más infame desertor, y el periodista que descubre increíbles secretos. 

    MORNING GLORIES #25 (MR)
    Es el final de la primera temporada.

    SECRET SERVICE #6 (OF 6) (MR)
    La conspiración es revelada. Gary y Jack empiezan a entender qué es lo que está detrás de los secuestros de las celebridades… pero esa información tiene un precio. Empiezan una incursión en el monte Everest, pero ¿en quién se puede confiar con tantas figuras prominentes involucradas?

    SEX #2
    El viaje de Simon a los bajos fondos de Ciudad Saturno continúa. ¿Qué tan reprimido estarías después de luchar contra el crimen durante la totalidad de tu vida adulta? ¿Qué pasa cuando la fantasía heroica termina?

    TODD, THE UGLIEST KID ON EARTH #4 (of 4)
    “Caramelos con extraños”. Cuando su mejor amigo y mentor cae en confinamiento solitario, Todd se convierte en un blanco fácil para el asesino de la Nación Aria. Mientras tanto, su mamá se enfrenta al homicida maníaco.

    UBER #0 (MR)
    1945. Alemania está en ruinas. La guerra en el oeste está a días de terminar. Las amenazas se ciernen sobre el moribundo Reich. No hay armas milagrosas aquí. Hay historias que mezclan al superhombre con la Segunda Guerra Mundial antes, pero ninguna como esta. 

    UNCANNY AVENGERS #5 
    WONDER MAN, WASP y SUNFIRE se unen al equipo justo a tiempo para la venganza de GRIM REAPER. La tensión aumenta cuando el liderazgo de HAVOC es cuestionado. Y uno de los vengadores matará a plena luz del día. 

    UNWRITTEN #47 (MR)
    Orfeo en el inframundo. Tom Taylor continúa con su misión: salvar a LIZZIE del mundo de los muertos. Tom ha llegado hasta el Hades, pero ha dejado sus memorias en el Leteo. Ahora está cara a cara con el rey del inframundo, quien tiene su propia agenda siniestra.

    THE WALKING DEAD #109
    Ellas continuarán con sus vidas en el Pico de la Cima.

    WITCH DOCTOR MALPRACTICE #5 (OF 6)
    En una esquina el doctor Morrow, en la otra, el parásito que lo ha infectado. Y nadie se imagina cuál será el campo de batalla.

    WOLVERINE AND X-MEN #27.1AU
    WOLVERINE y la Mujer Invisible en el pasado de los Vengadores.

    YOUNG AVENGERS #3 
    Una escena de pelea, probablemente. Y otra igual pero esta vez en un club. Muchos sentimientos (o sea ‘pulsiones emocionales significativas’ para los que no están en TUMBLR). La identificación falsa más falsa de todas.

    About the Author - Arion


    Arion, who is either from Chile or New York (it’s not really clear) writes a blog that the Outhouse steals on a regular basis.  Arion is by far the nicest of all the staff writers and the most well behaved only having been banned from one country.  One thing we really appreciate about Aroin is that he writes his reviews in English and Spanish and we hope someday he’ll translate this blurb for us.  We’re not so good at languages, just look at how well we write in English if you need proof.  You should bookmark Arion’s blog -  http://artbyarion.blogspot.com – and actually look at it.  There will be a quiz at the end of every month.
