COMIC BOOK REVIEW: The All-New Marvel NOW! – Cyclops #1

Cyclops_1_Land_Variant
Before getting started, I just want to acknowledge this year is the year of reboots and first issues. Boy do we really need them. For that matter, we are given another X-men spin-off title. Don’t get me wrong. Magneto’s series is kick ass! Check out JM’s review on it and your see why! I am really into, Brian Michael Bendis’ “All New X-men” but my interest for a pubescent teenage Scott Summers with daddy issues is non-existent.

The comics isn’t terrible buy any stretch of the imagination; but it’s just average. The art has done very well to keep to artist David Marquez’s drawing style of the young Scott Summers from All New X-Men. There are some redeeming quality’s. For instance, Scott using his optical beam through space. Also, there is a scene in the Space Jammers cockpit what very Star Wars Esq and it was cool to see how a young Scott Summers instinctively lead the head of the attack on the other ship…but that’s really about it. There is just no substance. No edge to get you hooked. No yearning for more. The way it ends it could easily be a one shot issue with nothing really leading you for more or no real cliff hanger.

I know I’m not really writing much about the first issue but I don’t believe in shitting on someone else work too much. To me this comic isn’t worth paying for by adding it to your Wednesday hauls. So swerve it for now, maybe wait until it’s a Trade Paper Back. Nevertheless, if you do get it go for Skottie Young’s baby variant. Its a pretty cool dawn baby Cyclops shooting his optic beam. Anyways, I’m only going to give this a 2 Metal Horns out of 5.

So let me know what you think and reach me on Instagram @his_masters_voice25 or tweet me @hamidhojabr.

I am Hamid Hojabr. All ways remember to “Rock Out With Your Geek Out!”

COMIC BOOK REVIEW: Magneto #3

Magneto-Header

Magneto, The Master of Magnetism. Well sort of…you see, at the moment; Magneto has broken powers. The Phoenix Force blasted through him and many more Marvel characters and their powers have been “broken”; or rather, reduced. Sure it is a handicap of course; however, that won’t stop Magneto from infiltrating corporations with intentions on harming Mutants and humans. That’s right. He’s pretty pissed about and I quote:

“…I must use more conventional means to achieve my goals. Those who hide within are responsible for unspeakable acts against the HUMANS they corrupt and turn into monsters…and against the Mutants those monsters have slaughtered…and ME. Here to bring it all down.”

In other words, there are not any limits or boundaries to restrain himself from annihilating all those involved in this project. Except maybe he can’t just toss the building into the sun. Since he’s a brilliant man he’s become extremely versatile with the restrictions, embarrassed by the lack of strength, he utilizes the simplistic approach to conquer. With that said, he has moments of frustrations with captions of nostalgia and reminiscing of how powerful he was in the past. But writer, Cullen Bunn, uses his phenomenal talent to make Magneto just as powerful, without all the power. Confusing? Well you will have to read issue 1 and 2 to understand how far Magneto will go, how he’s adapted, and why he’s being tracked. He’s leaving a body trail and the feds are just a few steps behind.

One last word on the comic because it’s VERY important. Artist, Gabriel Hernandez Walta, has been on board with Cullen Bunn since issue 1. Every page is masterful. The darkness of Magento’s mental state is plastered throughout the comic book. I hate to compare the style to Charlie Adlard of The Walking Dead fame, but it’s what I think of in most of the panels. Particularly in the homeless tent camp. Further into the comic are splashes of colors by Jordie Bellaire conveying the travesty Magneto has endured in trying to find his own sanctuary of peace. Nevertheless, this comic has phenomenal artistic presentation.

Do I recommend you reading Issue 3? Yes. There are some easter eggs for potential story arcs or game changers in this issue; but I must urge you, again; read from issue 1. It’ll cost you $12 at your local Comic Shop. It’s well worth it. Why? Because I give this issue a solid 5 out 5 Horns.
