AICN Accidentally Reveals Ridiculously Fluffy Nature of Comics Media with Amazing Spider-Man 2 CoverageBy Jude Terror in News with Benefits on February 6, 2013
The funny thing is, their headline was almost word for word the one we were writing before we saw their article.
Cover Skullkickers Volume 1 1000 Opas and a Dead Body is a fantasy action-comedy book published by Image and written by Jim Zub with art by Chris Stevens and Edwin Huang. It has a bit Tolkien and a bit D&D in it, mixed with a good chunk of action and a lots of humor. Shake everything and you'll have a light, fun, action packed story that embraces many fantasy cliches and gives them new, and often humorous, twists. Shorty and Baldy are the Skullkickers. Shorty is a foulmouthed, short-tempered, ax wielder, red-headed dwarf. Baldy is a calm(er), hulking like, pistol shooting, bald man. Together they steal, kill, maim, protect and any other job that will get them paid. How is it? Virgin Sacrifice? 1000 Opas and a Dead Body starts with the assassination of a Chancellor. Shorty and Baldy get themselves hired to retrieve his body from the authorities and return him to the Chancellor's entourage. Of course it goes horribly wrong and they find themselves in the middle of a deranged Necromancer's quest for power. Zombies, Elves, Demons, poisoned stew, bar fights and much more wait the Skullkickers. At first this seemed like a generic fantasy book. A dwarf and a big man go around doing whatever they can to get money, but it doesn't take long for the identity of Skullkickers to gain form and substance. I loved the way the book doesn't take itself too seriously and embraces some of the usual cliches of fantasy storytelling and twists them around in unexpected ways. Small details like the Baldy, a big strong man, being the brains of the operation and using a small and underwhelming looking pistol, fat werewolves, their generally unheroic behavior, among many others, made this book a very entertaining read. Shorty and Baldy jump into action This volume also collects the 2 Skullkicker stories from Popgun Volumes 2 and 3. These stories take place before 1000 Opas and a Dead Body and its more of a draft for Skullkickers than an early story. The art style fits the mood of the book like a glove. Chris Evens and Edwin Huang do a great job bringing Jim Zub's plot to life. The character designs are very good. Shorty, while great to look at, is not that original. He basically looks like Gimli from Lord of the Rings but in different armor. Baldy is a different story. He might have a simpler and more streamlined look, but it works very well. The panel dynamics is great and so is the coloring with its bright colors and distinct pallets for the different settings in the story. Fat Werewolf Just two small details I enjoy thoroughly. One are the sound effects. Not only you get the more usual Boom, Swash and alike, but also stuff like Dash, Powerful Slap, Incoming Death can be found throughout the book.I couldn't help it but to imagine a D&D Dungeon Master narrating the fight.The other is the way the dialogue that a prisoner of the Skullkickers has from the moment he is captured to the end of the book. While what he says is funny, what I liked is the fact that he had most his mouth shoot off, so he can't speak, just mumble. The way they handle it is very cool. Verdict? I came into this book with relatively low expectations and got blown away by how much I enjoyed it. At first its only an ok book, but soon it finds it voice and becomes a very fun and entertaining read. If you like fantasy stories, with dwarfs, elves, sorcery, taverns fights and alike then you definitely should read this book. Even if you're not big on fantasy but just want to read a good and entertaining comic book, then give it a try.

Everyone believed Tommy Watts was Earth’s most powerful teenager. They were wrong. Tommy Watts has but one ability: to give powers to those who never had them. After being kidnapped by a group of young renegades, one of his captors hits him over and over again, in a futile attempt to awaken his powers. None of them knows that Tommy can’t give powers to those who already have them, he can only affect regular human beings. Obviously, those in charge of America’s Got Powers can’t afford to lose someone as emblematic as Tommy, and they send an army of humans and a group of supermen to track him down. Although heavily action-oriented, Jonathan Ross doesn’t forget to include the elements that set this miniseries apart from regular superhero titles. The young renegades and Tommy are labeled as terrorists by the press. What is the origin of that this impasse between youth and authority? the attack of the paladins / el ataque de los paladines The group of power (the adults) wants to supervise the development of the adolescents identity. Nonetheless, feelings of fraudulence, desire for competency and mastery, and the vacillation between identification and individuation are common to both supervisor and adolescent. That is the source of the plot threads we find in America’s Got Powers: a paranoid fear (justified in this case), brutal competition between teens (sometimes to the death), and the search of one’s own identity. Tommy Watts captured / Tommy Watts capturado Bryan Hitch once again includes some truly great double page spreads, one of my favorites is the attack of several paladins (robots designed to neutralize a superhuman) on a an unsuspecting child; the other one shows us the army of supermen that are now in pursuit of Tommy, this is a very dynamic and colorful illustration. Hitch also does an amazing job with Tommy’s face, bruised and bleeding profusely. Finally, the confrontation between the young rebels and the conservative heroes is top notch. _____________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________ Todos creían que Tommy Watts era el adolescente más poderoso de la Tierra. Estaban equivocados. Tommy Watts tiene una sola habilidad: darle poderes a quienes nunca los tuvieron. Después de ser secuestrado por un grupo de jóvenes renegados, uno de sus captores lo golpea una y otra vez, en un fútil intento de activar sus poderes. Ninguno de ellos sabe que Tommy no puede darle poderes a quienes ya son poderosos, él sólo puede afectar a los seres humanos normales. the hunt begins / la cacería comienza Obviamente, los que están a cargo de "America’s Got Powers" no pueden darse el lujo de perder a alguien tan emblemático como Tommy, y envían un ejército de humanos y un grupo de superhombres para rastrearlo. Aunque hay mucha acción, Jonathan Ross no olvida incluir elementos que colocan esta serie por encima de los títulos heroicos comunes. Los jóvenes renegados y Tommy son calificados como terroristas por la prensa. ¿Cuál es el origen de este impasse entre la juventud y la autoridad? the confrontation / la confrontación El grupo de poder (los adultos) quiere supervisar el desarrollo de la identidad de los adolescentes. No obstante, los sentimientos de fraudulencia, el deseo de la competencia y el dominio, y la vacilación entre la identificación y la individuación son comunes tanto en el supervisor como en el adolescente. Este es el origen de los hilos argumentales de America’s Got Powers: un miedo paranoico (justificado en este caso), competencia brutal entre los jóvenes (a veces hasta la muerte) y la búsqueda de la identidad propia. Bryan Hitch una vez más incluye algunas páginas dobles de primer nivel, una de mis favoritas es el ataque de varios paladines (robots diseñados para neutralizar a un súper-humano) a un niño inocente; la otra muestra al ejército de superhombres que están buscando a Tommy, esta es una ilustración muy dinámica y colorida. Hitch también hace un asombroso trabajo con el golpeado rostro de Tommy, que sangra profusamente. Finalmente, la confrontación entre los jóvenes rebeldes y los héroes conservadores es tremenda.

dcwomenkickingass: Asked * if I like an early look at the first issue of Fearless Defenders #1, the new all female-team book from Marvel starring Misty Knight and Valkyrie, how could I say no? Misty Knight is one of my favorite female superhero characters of all time and, as you might know, I’m a tad interested in female characters as leads in superhero comics. So I gladly, albeit nervously, took the opportunity. So how was it? Read More Originally Published at Power Honor Grace http://powerhonorgrace.tumblr.com/post/42429154638
