Being a Better Geek: X-Cutioner’s Song

Posted on 18 August 2012 by VinnieAve

DM’s Introduction

As a small boy I knew very little regarding comic books. I didn’t have the pocket money to collect them nor did I know about them to have the interest. A few I had received as gifts over the years kept them on my radar though. X-cutioners Song changed that though.

Vin’s Picks Week of 6/18/2012

Posted on 21 June 2012 by VinnieAve

This was a good week for me in comics. I picked up six books and I didn’t dislike one. There are a few that aren’t for everyone and I will be skipping those. Also there is a big thing this week, I think that I am increasingly saying that I like Marvel books better than DC books but I still stand by my older post about Marvel. I must add a warning

Uncanny X-Men #14 – This was a nice break from the AvX storyline that is going on in other books, part of this is due how much X-men stuff was going on in AvX. Instead this time we get more into Mr. Sinister and what he’s been up to since he was defeated a few issues book. The cover wasn’t something that would have drawn me but the art in the book was great. I am a huge fan of one-shots, and this was a nice thing to have. It had a little to do with how creepy Sinister is. There is possibility that this will be a multi-part story but I hope not.

Winter Soldier #7 – This is another series that has been really good. This is the second issue in the current story, so it won’t be hard to catch up. Honestly if you haven’t read the first part, you can read this and be fine. This book has some of the best use of color and wonderful action scenes. There is a great dynamism throughout. If you like cold war type stories this one is for you. If you are like me and don’t like to have a computer open when reading your books this one helps fill in details.

Saga #4 – This is the best series running now. Go and pick it up. Actually this series is starting to slow down a little bit and this is a good thing for the story. It felt a little short and there were only a few scenes. I have to say this one keeps making me get more. If you don’t read this in months please, please pick up the trades. If you don’t live in region that will have it for sale when that comes out I will send it to you.
