Hulk #12 Review

You know what reading the new Hulk series by Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuiness is like? It’s like going on a blind date with the biggest, dumbest girl you’ve ever met. You may wonder why you stick around, but as she spits when she talks and gives wild stories as to why she’s missing teeth, you can’t help but end the night with a guilty grin on your face.

“Most fun I’ve ever had with my clothes on!” 

“Blow it out your flaming pants, Dormammu!”

“See if you can subjective this!”

That’s a sample of the bombasity contained within these pages, most of which are concerned with the mysterious, new red Hulk beating up powerful beings much bigger than himself. And yes, there’s an awful lot of exclamation points in here. 16 in fact. That’s the point though. Jeph Loeb knows how to write smart, restrained, tasteful superhero tales, but the Jeph Loeb writing this series is his evil twin. He shouts a lot, slams his fists and his having the time of his life. And it’s fun to watch.

Hulk #12

Superman/Batman Animated Film

 

Public Enemies TPBSure, Marvel may be kicking DC’s butt in the battle of the cinema, but DC are winning the animated war. Marvel’s animated films (two Ultimate Avengers, Iron Man, Dr. Strange and Hulk Vs) have been disappointing, but DC’s (Superman/Batman, Justice League: The New Frontier, Wonder Woman) have been awesome. This year, after the recently announced Green Lantern: First Flight, the next release will be Superman/Batman: Public Enemies. This is great news indeed. The film will be based on the action packed first 6 issues of DC’s team-up title, by writer Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuiness. The official synopsis is below. I can’t wait. Go here for a sneak peek at the comic book  inspiration.

SUPERMAN/BATMAN: PUBLIC ENEMIES:

United States President Lex Luthor uses the oncoming trajectory of a
kryptonite asteroid to frame Superman and declare a $1 billion bounty
on the heads of the Man of Steel and his “partner in crime” Batman.
Super heroes and super villains alike launch a relentless pursuit of
Superman and Batman, who must unite – and recruit super help – to
stave off the action-packed onslaught, stop the asteroid, and uncover
Luthor’s devious plot to take command of far more than North America.

Ultimatum #1 Preview

ultimatum_01_mcguinnessvariantcover1

So, Magneto goes mad and vows revenge. It’s a tune he’s been playing for decades, but this time, its in the Ultimate universe (Marvel’s alternate line of more accessible books). Ultimatum is out now and is a 5 part mini-series focused on the helmeted bad guy’s swathe of destruction across the Ultimate U, involving earthquakes and tidal waves and such. The tagline is from Mags’ mouth – “For what they’ve done, they will have to pay the Ultimate price.” I have no idea what they did, as I’m only a casual Ultimate reader, but I’m sure all will be revealed. It echoes of DC’s similar use of Lex Luthor’s line in an early Superman/Batman issue – “There will be a crisis…a reckoning,” which eventually came to pass with Infinite Crisis. A preview of Ultimatum’s premiere ish is below. The series is written by Jeph Loeb (Hulk) with great art by David Finch (Avengers: Disassembled).
