AVENGERS: ULTRON UNBOUND
Want to feel like you're on the inside while you're watching the new Avengers? Read this and you'll be the one leaning over and whispering, "he's not like in the books" or "they nailed him". Or at least that's what I initially thought this would be. Turns out it's actually an arc from the 90's that featured Ultron....trying to find love? Ok. I'm thoroughly surprised. And I quote:
"Which of the West Coast Avengers women will he take as the basis for his metallic mate, known as War Toy? As the Whackos regroup after a blistering assault, Ultron finds that the path of true love doesn't run smooth - even for ruthless robots."
Huh, wonder if they'll use that in the movie?
Contains: Avengers West Coast #89-91, Avengers West Coast Annual #8, and Vision #1-4.
STAR WARS LEGENDS - EPIC COLLECTION VOL. 1: THE EMPIRE
Holy crap crackers! That's a lot of Star Wars comics, Batman! Can't say I'm surprised that Disney is reprinting their new acquisitions through an old acquisition, makes sense. The people who are happy with their original Dark Horse prints need not apply, but for anyone new to the galaxy far, far away or anyone who just wants to save some space on the shelf these volumes are great news. And with splashy cover's by Alex Ross I'm sure your shelf would be happy to hold them.
Contains: Star Wars (1st Series) #78-80, Star Wars: Purge, Star Wars: Purge - Seconds to Die, Star Wars: Purge - Hidden Blade, Star Wars: Purge - Tyrants Fist #1-2, Star Wars: Darth Vader and the Lost Command #1-5 and Star Wars: Dark Times #1-5
SKULL THE SLAYER
There isn't as much in this as I thought there would be, (less than 200 pages), especially considering it's only $10 less then the almost 500 pages that's offered in the tome above. At first I kind of laughed at the title, which sounds like a Kull The Conqueror knock off, (and, honestly, probably was), but then I saw the nice Gil Kane cover and noticed it was written by Marv Wolfman and figured it'd be worth a mention. There's some burgeoning talent in it as it was the mid 70's and Wolfman had yet to throw the DC Universe into their first, and best, Crisis.
Contains: Skull the Slayer #1-8 and Marvel Two-in-One (1st Series) #35-36
