COMIC BOOK REVIEW: All-New Marvel NOW! – Original Sin #1

Coming off the back of issue 0,  here comes the first installment of an 8 part mini series. With an all-star cast in this years first big event since “Infinity” (which in my opinion was so weak!); lets dive in.

When getting stuck into it felt like a right old English style “who did it?” Murder Mystery, if my memory serves me right I don’t think MARVEL has ever done? Picking up on the strong points it has to be the back and forth dialog. Fun conversations in the dinner with 4 of Marvels big hitters reminiscing about the past. Later on in the issue with a real “fantasy football” team-ups with the likes of Dr. Strange, The Punisher, Moon Knight, and Gamora. Oh yes we are in for some heavy hitting soon!

Moving back onto the art, Mike Deodato has drawn some outstanding images. From the close-up shot of Fury with the shading to The Watchers lifeless body with blood spatter floating of into space.

When you get to the action your featuring Spidey and the Thing going toe-to-toe with “The Mindless One”. The way this altercation pans out, you start to really feel for the creature. Having known nothing to knowing someone else’s pain and suffering and feeling things someone else has felt, then having to endure it is too much for anyone or anything living on this Earth.

**Spoiler Alert!!! If you haven’t read this comic skip this next bit!**

The end page has to be the most visually shocking thing I’ve seen done by Marvel in a while. A shadowed figure holding the watchers eyes! It really adds to the who the hell did it?!

To wrap this up I’ve got to say I am very impressed with the first issue and im glad JM has given me this to continue with reviewing. I’ll be sticking with it all the way! It is worth every penny (or cent) but if your like me buy a few issues and read it all at once so you get a real buzz for what’s going on; but if you get itchy fingers just go ahead and read it ! This is another 5/5 horns for The Original Sin!

So let me know what you think and reach me on Instagram or Tweet Me!

So for next time Geekazoids. I am Hamid Hojabr.  All ways remember to “Rock Out With Your Geek Out!

COMIC REVIEW: ALL-NEW Ultimate FF #1 (The Fail Federation)

UltimateFF1Following the Events of Marvel’s “Cataclysm”, comes a new run of Ultimate Comics like the one I am reviewing today; FF “The Future Federation”. This is not to be confused with The Future Foundation or The Fantastic Four; however, they are similar in their casting roles. The new version of the faction consists of the members of Doc Sue Storm, Tony Stark’s Iron-Man, Sam Wilson as the Falcon, and Danny Ketch aka Machine Man. Now, before the final review of the comic I read it over; twice. Both times I struggled to get into it. There was just something missing. At times, it was extremely Ultimate_FF_1_Coverhard to keep interested in and even harder to write-up a review on without saying, its Shit; THE END!…BUT, I wont do that! Lets break it down and talk about what could have been better.

The story begins with two local builders at the site of Galactus. Before you know it, BOOM! They are gone with an explosion of blue smoke. Next is a two page spread of the team and everyone at the scene of the explosion. There is just way too much going on in this page. Its hard to know where to look and there are pointless IQ scores next to the FF. The second thing what was to my displeasure was the horrible purple and blue suits. I don’t know if it was writer Joshua Hale Fialkov’s concept or the artists, Mario Guevara and Tom Grummetts conception; but they could of gone down so many different avenues with the new look. If it were my conception, I would have pulled from the Earth 616 universe and tweaked the stunning white and black costuming. Moving on. Further into the story there is a “What the hell?!?!” moment as Iron Man not only knocks himself out from a blast of energy from his suit while trying to use jump leads to break the force filed around him; only to be grabbed by their new unknown creators. One grabbing at his leg and the other at his leg, pulling most of the Iron man suit clean off; leaving him in his underwear…

Ultimate_FF_Preview_2Not everything is all “Doom” and gloom. The most redeeming quality about this book is an arrival of an Unknown Assailant being sent down by Agent Phil Coulson. Concealed in a coffin casing is to be held by someone who is so evil only this tomb can hold him. Once this persons energy is released from within the Coffin, the “big blue dome” they have been held in disappears. All of the work has now been saved. While Dr. Sue Storm is ranting, a mysterious figure begins emerging from the shadows. Then Sue hears the voice. She recognized the voice. The voice of Victor Van Damme (not Von Doom…remember its a different time line) Dr. Doom! Looking badass as ever! On a final note my score of The FF (Fail Federation) is a low 4/10! Don’t trouble yourself into buying it. It’s easily a title you can skip, but if you want to get into a new issue #1 you HAVE to check out Moon Knight or Magneto now those are issue number 1’s to invest in!

That concludes this weeks review so for next time Geekazoids. I am Hamid Hojabr. And all ways remember to “Rock Out With Your Geek Out!”
