PULL LIST 9/18 – JJ Abrams’ SPIDER-MAN #1! House of X #5!
Ugh! Normally I do Pull List once a month but couldn’t wait! 😛 Let’s take a look at the hotness I got in this week’s Bad Boy Nerd Comic book reviews!
First of all….
HOUSE OF X #5
I mean, DAYUM! Jonathan Hickman’s run on X-Men is off the CHAINS!
Professor is on his Morpheus in Zion/Matrix-type shit! Storm gives THE most epic speeches to end all speeches (you just gotta see it) – Just when you THOUGHT peeps was dead….NOPE! The X-Men have this wildly ambitious plan to resurrect every dead mutant ever! That plus, the X-Men have claimed Krakoa the living island as their home, and invited everybody…and i do mean EVERYBODY – to live in the new mutant society! Including, APOCALYPSE! (No way in hell is this going to last lol)
Yes, THAT J.J. Abrams (Star Wars, Star Trek), along with his son Henry penned this SHOCKING new tale of Spider-Man! Being a fan of Abrams the movie director, not sure how I feel about JJ Abrams the comic book writer. But I will say THIS… he wasted zero time shaking shit up! Immediately kills off a main character and Introduces a new crazy looking villain called ‘Cadaverous’ and [**SPOILER ALERT**] introduces new character Ben Parker – son of Peter and MJ! Looks like Ben is just like daddy :O
I bought multiple copies of these issues as Buy and Hold investments. They way Hickman is going, nearly every issue he writes is a KEY development. And not sure which continuity JJ Abrams’ Spidey book takes place in, but he already introduced two characters which I am SURE at least one (Ben Parker) will be added permanently. If it’s anything like Gwen Stacy, I think Ben is here to stay as a new Spider-Man!
it’s worth a few bucks to grab some #1s, and like always every book is available in my online store!
Til next time 😉
