Lenoard Nimoy sadly passed away, so this week we open up with a special small tribute to the great man. Following that we get straight into business. Dark Horse gets some play with news of Astro Boy Omnibus and more in the works with also a new post-apocalyptic tale coming this Spring with a girl and a cat! There’s Marvel news, Batman: Arkham Knight gets a new trailer and an official rating (“M for Mature” see what that means for people), and more additions to CBS’ Supergirl. Husband and wife super comic writing team Matt Fraction and Kelly Sue DeConnick have HUGE news and there’s more to spill on WB/DC’s movies. Oh, and what’s this about Wolverine, his hand, and…. drugs?
The Comic Bubble Podcast Episode 007: To Justice League or Not to Justice League? That is the question.
This week see what there is to know about the Superman sequel movie that really is just a Justice League film, get into spoiler territory on the latest episode of CW’s Arrow, return to more talk on DC’s Batman 75 years celebration that includes a new short and variants! And if that’s not enough, there’s even chatter on Wolverine’s death coming to a comic near you this fall, Marvel’s mystery 100th celebration and an annoyance they do with their solicitations, Free Comic Book Day and a good-bye to Jason Aaron leaving the X-world!

Jessica LG is a cosplayer who I learned about through Nicole Marie Jean, who’s an amazing cosplayer in her own right. It only took a quick glance through Jessica LG’s photo album for me to come to adore her! Rogue is my favorite X-Men character, with Gambit a close second, so seeing her cosplay as Rogue instantly drew my adoration. Toss in Kitty Pryde, Hope and Black Widow and there’s enough to make a Marvel fanboy go giddy!
It goes without saying that I’ve been less than kind to X-Men: Days of Future Past. I’ve mocked Storm‘s costume, laughed at the PEZ dispensers looking Sentinels, and even criticized Bryan Singer’s return to the franchise in general. And while I still standby my criticisms, X-Men: Days of Future Past looks as though it has the potential to be more than the sum of its parts. But don’t take my word for it…
Like the Phoenix I arise from the death with life anew. Unfortunately without an advanced healing factor like Wolverine’s or Sabretooth’s, any pain I go through takes normal time. But that’s not important! What is important is that I bring forth the latest what’s-what on Battle of the Atom with the last three chapters! So no more chit-chat or patty-whacks. Let’s dig right in!
X-Men: Battle of the Atom’s third chapter picked up with the three different era X-Men making their plans to chase the runaways of the past, Jean and Scott. While the scenes in the issue are paced well, overall it can feel somewhat quick at times, but not so fast that you feel like it’s running you by. With an event which is taking 10 issues to tell, you want some haste, but not too much as to drag everything down.
Spoilers. Warning. You get the idea. After originally being announced back in April during C2E2, X-Men: Battle of the Atom celebrates 50 wondrous, confusing for some, and glorious years of X-Men stories since their creation by Stan Lee & Jack Kirby in September of 1963. The event, running through four X-Men books with two special book-end issues, tells the tale of past, present, and future X-Men coming together to prevent a screw-up from making life worse for the merry mutants in the future.
