January comic books / cómics de enero

This is a strange month for me. I’m sad because I read the final issue of Young Avengers, the most fantastic series I’ve been able to find in recent years. And at the same time I’m happy, thrilled actually, to (re)read the first issue of Miracleman; many have complained about the 5.99 price tag, but I must remind you all that the original Eclipse edition of issue # 1 doesn’t sell for less than 8 dollars and subsequent issues can range anywhere from 15 to 225 dollars (or more); so 5.99, (and 4.99 for the rest of the series) seems quite reasonable. Let’s keep taking about first issues. Avengers World # 1 was good (and I absolutely loved to see Star Brand in it!). All-New X-Factor wasn’t as great as I hoped it would be, and the art was a bit off-putting. Vertigo’s Dead Boy Detectives, on the other hand, was quite interesting. Nevertheless, if I had to choose the best comic of the month, that award would go to Detective Comics # 27. It’s so awesome. I promise I’ll review it. And now, without further ado, here are January comics as per solicitations.

ALL NEW X-FACTOR #1

Este es un extraño mes para mí. Estoy triste porque leí el número final de "Young Avengers", el título más fantástico que he podido encontrar en años recientes. Y al mismo tiempo estoy feliz, entusiasmado, por (re)leer el primer número de "Miracleman"; muchos se han quejado porque el precio es 5.99, pero debo recordarles a todos que la edición original de Eclipse del # 1 no se vende por menos de 8 dólares y números subsiguientes pueden ir de 15 a 225 dólares (o mucho más); así que 5.99 (y 4.99 para el resto de la serie) parece bastante razonable. Sigamos hablando de primeros números. "Avengers World" # 1 estuvo bien (y me encantó ver a Star Brand). "All-New X-Factor" no fue tan grandioso como hubiese querido, y el arte fue bastante insatisfactorio. "Dead Boy Detectives" de Vertigo, por otro lado, fue bastante interesante. No obstante, si tuviera que elegir el mejor cómic del mes, ese premio sería para "Detective Comics" # 27. Es tan asombroso. Prometo reseñarlo. Y ahora, sin más preámbulos, aquí están los cómics de enero.

ALL NEW X-FACTOR #1
‘No es una marca X’. Industrias Serval acaba de revelar su mayor contribución a la sociedad… el nuevo X-Factor. Liderados por POLARIS, el equipo usará el apoyo corporativo para mejorar la sociedad. 

AVENGERS WORLD #1
Los héroes más poderosos de la Tierra han regresado de las estrellas, pero en el mundo que dejaron atrás han surgido nuevas amenazas.

DEAD BOY DETECTIVES #1 (MR)
Dos adolescentes trabajarán como detectives, investigando sus propias muertes. Los chicos regresan a San Hilario, donde directores abusivos continúan dominando la escuela. Pero cuando investigan el misterio de sus muertes, conocen a una chica llamada Cristal con habilidades detectivescas y una conexión con los no muertos. El caso recién se ha abierto.

DETECTIVE COMICS #27
John Layman, Brad Meltzer et al.

MIRACLEMAN #1
Con una sola palabra olvidada, una leyenda olvidada revive.

SCARLET #6 (MR)
La llamada a las armas ha sido oída por todo el mundo. Y el mundo reacciona. ¿Puede persistir una revolución moderna? 

THREE #4
Los tres esclavos, desesperados por escapar del represivo régimen espartano se encuentran acorralados… pero por un nuevo perseguidor. Atrapados y desarmados, saben que el ejército espartano se aproxima. No pueden ocultarse. No pueden huir. ¿Empezarán a luchar?

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.
