Spidey vs Venom

It ain’t no Chris Bachalo or Humberto Ramos but I like it. I drew this when I woke up at around 3 am. Used pencils, ink and colored pencils to liven it up.Β  Drew it on a yellow-paged moleskin notebook and shot it with my camphone.

Enjoy! πŸ˜€

The Dark Reign’s End

This week marks the end of Osborne’s dark reign as the Siege # 4 is set for release Thursday.

The dark reign concludes in Siege # 4, Avengers Finale, Fallen, and Dark Avengers # 16.

Dark reign’s premise, many would say, has been done before. But the reason why this particular ‘re-take’ on this angle appealed to me is because it showcased great heroes with their backs against the wall.

Dark reign posed a great challenge to Marvel U heroes. It’s not about beating a 60-foot giant or stopping an alien horde. It’s about them trying to save people who don’t want to be saved by them. It’s about getting flak for not reporting to their villain-rival who is now in power.

Dark reign was an everyday threat to them. By merely wearing a mask, heroes have put their integrity on the line.

It may be ironic that I like heroes who are more human than heroes (heroes are meant to be above us). But it’s all because it makes it easy for me to relate to them. Easy for me to be inspired that I can do some kick-ass goodness too. Easy for others to hope that they are more than they think they are.

Secret Avengers Revealed

This week Marvel unveiled two of 2010 Eisner nominee Ed Brubaker’s Secret Avengers.

One of them is Beast.

I think he finally got sick of Scott Summer’s way of running the show. A sabbatical with the Avengers might do him good. Besides this secret team won’t be having Tony Stark’s smarts so Mrs. McCoy’s baby will come in handy. How do I know Tony’s not in this team? Well the armored enforcer in this unit is this guy:

Yep War Machine is in.

I wonder when they plan to reveal the other members.

****************************

Wishlist for the Secret Avengers team:

1. Nick Fury

2. Dr. Strange

3. Iron Fist

4. Scarlett Witch

5. Vance Astrovik

6. Marvel Boy (Noh Varr)

7. Gauntlet

There’s a new psycho in town

They gave him a 6 at IGN. Even though he gave them X number of dead bodies in one book.

Meet Nemesis. Millar’s latest psycho after Wanted and Kick-ass.

Critics are comparing the book to a typical Michael Bay film. They say it uses explosions and deaths to cover up for its lack of story. But just like any Bay film, I think the purpose of the book is to entertain and not change the status quo. And if we view Nemesis in that light, it did entertain and it did intrigue. I am excited to see if the top cop is going to die or is he’s going to beat the crazy guy in white. I ‘d like to find out what’s Nemesis reasons are. (maybe this is just me)

********************************************

I also got my New Avengers last night. Bendis was on cue with his ‘Lost’-like approach to story telling. He basically laid the back story of Luke Cage-Jessica Jones and Hawkeye-Mockingbird before the Siege battle took place. It was a good way to seed plots for life after Siege.

Mike McKone’s art was just fine. I missed Stuart Immonen’s touch though. The book makes for a good Siege tie-in.

******************************************

And also, Green Lantern # 52 is out this week. Go pick it up. It’s Geoff John’s perfect set-up for Blackest Night # 8. This book is so good it makes me want to say Marvel -1, DC – 1. Ha! (hold it Siege # 3 is kick-ass too)

***********************************************

It’s a great time to be a comic book geek πŸ˜€

Toy Brag Post

Nothing much here but save …for some armors!!!!!

yeah!

My new collection! πŸ˜€ 3 3/4 marvel toys πŸ˜€

They are some of the well detailed buggers you’ll ever meet. Hasbro has mastered the 3 3/4 scale.

I am now waiting for the original shellhead ironman, iron patriot, silver centurion armor and the movie’s mark 4 suit.

(I noticed the cap is at the back:P)

*****************************

By they way, Siege # 3 is out and the pace continues to quicken and we’re slowly seeing the true Sentry. Great art as usual and i’d disagree to reviews that say bendis write too much. The dialogue works. I am not going to spoil it for you so grab your copy now πŸ™‚

And don’t forget Dark Avengers # 15 too. Great read. I am going toΒ  miss this ragtag group of villains masquerading as heroes. Thunderbolts is good but it’s way better when you have goons acting as the world’s mightiest heroes. πŸ˜›
