Hope is safely at Utopia, the X-Men are finally seeing a little break from all the craziness, and now is a good time for world hatred towards the mutants to come to an end. Can Cyclopes and Wolverine convince the world leaders that their Sentinels are no longer needed?
The mutant messiah trilogy comes to a close with a heartbreaking story about a girl who loses her father, and an elf the world loved. If this story was a creator-owned project it would be one of the very best out there, but because it's mainstream all these dead characters will return to life in another week or so. Still, this remains an excellent conclusion to the mutant messiah trilogy, and develops Hope as one of the most interesting new mutant introduced in the past 20 years.
Messiah War picks up a short time after Messiah War and deals with Cable's journey through time with the mutant messiah. No longer a baby, Hope must come to terms that there is something mighty special about her, because people are being sent through time just to assassinate her, or protect her. This pivotal second chapter shows just how far Cable is willing to go to protect the future of his species.
We're starting to make some movement here. Part 3 looks at Messiah Complex, one of the largest X-Men events to come along in a very long time. It's the beginning of the "Messiah Trilogy," and prepares readers for mutant's future, or lack thereof.
After the devastating events of Avengers Disassembled, something must be done with the Scarlet Witch, or else all life on Earth could be wiped out with a mere thought. House of M is the direct follow-up, and completely changes the Marvel Universe's mutant race. It's one of the best events Marvel has put out in the last decade and a must-read for anyone trying to get into superhero comics today.
If you're looking to get back into comics, or simply interested in seeing a giant 10-year storyline run its course, you've come to the right place. Jarrod goes over each and every major Marvel comic event since 2004, starting with the now-classic Avengers Disassembled arc, which saw the Avenger disband for the very first time. This storyline also laid the groundwork for the next decade of stories Marvel has told. It's hard to believe, but even this summer's huge Avengers vs. X-Men event all began with this story from 2004. Enjoy!
Ever wonder when these big comic book events started, and why? Jarrod looks at the history behind the comic event and how it has changed the face of comics forever. The story behind why events started is rather interesting, so hopefully you can all take something away from this article.
If the other comic series I mentioned before seemed a little too tame to you, this is the one that will push you over the edge. Chew is unlike any other comic series out there. It's dark humour at its finest. Come on in to find out why Chew won the 2010 Eisner for Best New Series.
Are you enjoying ABC's Once Upon a Time? If so, I've got a comic series that might interest you because it appears to be the inspiration behind the show. It's called Fables and it's been on-going since 2003 for a very good reason, it's awesome!
The Walking Dead is one of the most powerful, profound, and all around excellent adult-themed comic series in print today. If you want to get into a series that's really different and places characters first, this is a series you must check out.
Jarrod has seen the light, the digital comic book light that is. If you own a tablet and or a smartphone, there's one app you simply must download. It changed his life, and it might just be what you need to finally make comics apart of your life.
