Meet Marvel’s All-New Young Guns

All-New Young Guns SpecialEvery few years or so Marvel Comics likes to put a big spotlight on their bullpen of up-and-coming art talent they’ve dubbed The Young Guns. Former Young Guns include artists like Jim Cheung, Olivier Coipel, David Finch, and Steve McNiven, and this year Marvel has put another group of hot, young talent on some of the publisher’s best titles. What better way to showcase these artists then showing off their stuff? Here’s a rundown on these hot, young artists, where you can find current work, and my favorite work from each.

Review: Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man #2

Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-Man #2

Is Peter Parker really back?! Peter Parker is standing in Miles Morales’ apartment asking for his web shooters back. But can Miles trust the newly resurrected Parker? As if he doesn’t have enough on his head between girls and the New Ultimates. The question is this Peter Parker back in the flesh or is it a clone, much like Black Widow( Jessica Drew formerly Ultimate Spider-Woman still def a clone of Peter Parker. The Ultimate Universe I know.)? Ganke certainly doesn’t have the answer but who will?

The Good
Let me just say this issue was awesome. The skirmish at the beginning of this issue was so tense. I really had no idea how it was gonna play put, it’s so hard to get a read on the return of Parker. Honestly it really could be him, being dead and all would def leave someone a lil cranky. But what if he is just another clone? Bendis you are an evil genius. Also David Marquez once again kills it in this issue. Each pages feels like you are in the room with the Spider-Men. This issue really had it all, it was intense, funny, kinda sad, and drama filled.

The Bad
Why did it have to end? Damnit Bendis! Why you gotta mess with my head? His posting the cover of All-New X-Men with Miles Morales on the cover certainly didn’t help my understanding of just where this story is gonna go now. A spoiler I really hope is just a joke.

The Verdict
This was a strong follow up to what I though was a great relaunch to a title I have enjoyed since the beginning. Bendis just knows what he’s doing with the Ultimate Spider-Man and I’m just gonna have to trust he knows what he’s doing and not going senile on me here. I know he know what he’s doing I just had to take a quick dig after I saw that All-New X-men cover I felt a little slighted. I’m still sold and waiting on the next one, and you should be grabbing it!

Jules: Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-Man #2

The last issue was beyond solid. The last page left my jaw on the floor. Is Ultimate Peter Parker Back? Will Miles’ father come back? Miles has a whole lot to figure out! David Marquez owns up to his new Young Gun title. Bendis has honestly yet to slow down on this title. I am super stoked for this issue. You should be!

Christian: The New 52 – Futures End #5

It could have gone two ways with my pick this week, but since both of my choices are weekly books, there will be another one next week, so I flipped a coin and Batman Eternal lost out over The New 52 – Futures End #5. This title has been hit or miss in its first month, but the stage is set for something really big to go down in this issue. Mr. T is a badass mother – shut your mouth – and we hopefully see his evil, universe destroying tech this week.

Gaumer: Iron Fist: The Living Weapon #3

There once existed a time at Marvel Comics when labels like writer, artist, cover artist, storyteller, and the like weren’t so damned important. Steranko, Kirby, Ditko. Yeah sure, these guys are artists, okay. But you know what else they were? Amazing writers! There’s a certain quality that a comic book adopts when there’s one person – a single creative mind – doing EVERYTHING on a title, and that’s exactly what we’ve been getting with Kaare Andrews’ Iron Fist: The Living Weapon. I’m hoping that the same creative synergy Andrews has been gifting readers in the first two issues continues in this book, and I’ll find out first thing Wednesday.

Review: Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-Man

20140529-073949-27589266.jpg

Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-Man

Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Artist: David Marquez

The dust is slowly settling for Miles Morales since the events of Cataclysm. On top of joining the new reformed Ultimates he’s also returned to school. Sadly since revealing he is Spider-Man to his father, he’s gone missing and Miles doesn’t quite know how to handle it. Of course things with his love interest are constantly up and down with his bit secret not win gone the two of them share. Miles knows one person who can give him proper advice on how to tell a love one your a superhero , Mary Jane Watson. The two then share an awkward recollection of all what came MJ’s way when Peter told her he was Spider-Man. A dangerous road to walk down and only one Miles should be sure he’s ready for. Everyday since the Cataclysm, Miles checks his apartment to see if his father has returned, however a very unexpected guest is waiting for him in his apartment at the end of this issue!

The Good

David Marquez was named a Young Gun for a reason! The art in the issue is beyond spectacular! Every emotion is really felt in the faces of each character. Bendis, since the title’s inception in 2000, has delivered a Spider-Man tale for all. Fans of the original, and new fans can look through this catalog and find something for them. This issue is a solid reestablishment of what Bendis had been building in this title since the beginning. The last page had my jaw hit my knees and pop them out of socket. This felt like just one of those issues where artiste and writer seems to weave each page with such precision is almost impossible to imagine it took two.

The Bad
I want to know just what the heck happened at the end of this issue.
And if you’re not a fan of Ultimate. Universe you need to just quit your griping and realize it’s not your 616.

The Verdict
This was a strong start to another wonderful Ultimate title headed by the Ultimate Bendis. I’m a huge fan of what’s been going on in the Ultimate Universe, and I think if you give it a chance you will too! David Marquez came out of a cannon after that Young Guns announcement with this unbelievably wonderfully drawn issue! I look forward to more wonderful things with this creative team, and especially with this title!
