Title: Rulk Hulk #15
Writer: The Second Coming of Alan Moore Jeph Loeb
Art: Ian Churchill and Mark Farmer
Publisher: Disney Marvel
Price: $3.99 (and worth every penny)

Listen up my lil’ Comic Culture Warriors. The wait is finally over. It’s the last Wednesday of the month and with it comes the release of what I call “The Best F’n Comic Book of the Month” ( or TBFCBotM for short…XD) but you may know it better as Hulk #15. I was almost worried the this comic wouldn’t make it out this month but thanks to Jeph Loeb’s strong work ethic and his love for his fans I, today, hold the book in my hands. I knew Loeb wouldn’t let all us fanboys down. Thanks Jeph!!!! lolololol.

Last ish Domino accidentally found out Rulk’s identity and got away while Rulk chased after her. So, natch, he hires a group of mercenaries (some of Marvel’s most bad ass heroes imho) and they go to hunt Domino down. When they finally track her down she’s not alone, no sirree. Man, when I read that last page and saw that all of X-Force was standing face 2 face against Rulk’s team I thought 2 myself “Dood, this is going to be a wicked fight!” And do you think Loeb let my down with this titanic throw down? Read on, fanboys, read on.

B4 I get in2 the happenings of this ish I got to state something 4 the record. I’ve read reviews on other websites that weren’t very favorable 2 the last issue. People complained that the story really didn’t make any sense and that Mr. Loeb just puts a lot of characters in2 his stories to hide that fact that he can’t write. All I got 2 say is WTF? REALLY!?

1st off, the story makes complete sense. How does Rulk find all of these guys 2 help him out? He’s got connections u dbags. Jeph Loeb has been laying down the foundation for who Rulk is and how he is so connected since ish #1. He’s got to hunt down Domino. She knows who he really is. Can you imagine if someone found out YOUR secret identity? You’d probably want to kill that person 2 help protect yourself. Am I right? Loeb knows this. He understands how real people think. That’s what makes him a beyond great writer. Have you watched the new episodes of Heroes this season? Well, I haven’t because as soon as Loeb got fired from the show I boycotted it and haven’t watched it since. I have heard from friends of mine that the show has gotten like so much worse. It’s like a ship without a rudder doods. Jeph Loeb was Heroes rudder and without him that show has lost it’s direction. I know that might b 2 deep 4 some of u to understand but Loeb fanz know what I mean. They get it.

And B) you know why Loeb puts so many awesome characters in2 every story? It’s not to hide the fact he can’t write, it’s 2 show how much of a great writer he is. 2 me, the more characters you have in a comic the better writer u r. Need proof? 3 words: Brian F’n Bendis. Look how many characters are in Dark Avengers and New Avengers. Bendis is THE only guy I know (besides Loeb) who can write those books that awesomely. Did you read those Matt Fraction issues of Dark Avengers. Ya, that guy should just stick with his Iron Man book with the two characters that r in it cause he can’t write 4 lots of characters. Hey Marvel! Don’t you ever take Bendis off of Dark Avengers or New Avengers again! That was one of the only things you have done wrong this year but it was still wrong. If you ever do it again I am going to start buying some DC (Dildo Comix) instead. lololololol. Ha, right. I wouldn’t do that but still keep Bendis on Avengers 4ever (and no I don‘t mean like that crappy Avengers 4ever story by Curt Buick of Dildo Comics). IF not, only replace him with Loeb or maybe even Mark Millar. Doods, could you imagine Loeb and Millar teaming up to do like a Civil War 2? Wow, has anyone else thought about this? I have some ideas 4 it. I’ll post them later on. And if you like what you see Marvel you can use my ideas. lololol.

Oh shit, what time is it? Man, sorry, doods. I lost track of the time. I promised my bud DP I would jump on Halo ODST 2nite for a few hours and help him tbag some noobz. I’ll post this on my blog rite now so you guys can read it. I know I really didn’t get 2 far into the story of this issue so if you want me to do a second part to this review give me a holla holla in the comments section.

Stay crescent fresh fanboys.

lulz….XDDDDD

Hey all, Elliott here. Being a comic-book writer, sometimes I’ll get an e-mail from a CCW*TV viewer asking for tips on how to write a script or advice for coming up with ideas. Generally I’ll respond with the answers that I’ve been given in the past by more experienced writers. Those days are gone, since now all I have to do is refer all you budding scribes to this video:

I had NO IDEA that Sarah Palin was such a sage author! :::winks:::

See you on the flip side,

Fear vs War

Typically the last Wednesday of the month is the biggest. Doesn’t seem to be the case though this week. Pickings seem a bit slim but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any great books making their way out. Here’s what I’ll be getting:

Aliens #3
Gotham City Sirens #4
Green Lantern #46
Secret Warriors #8
Thunderbolts #136
Wonder Woman #36
X-Factor #49

Now, this would usually be the point in this post where I would make a few insulting remarks about some of the shitty books also coming out this week but since some of you have feelings that are particularly fragile I’ll hold off just this once and leave all the insults for my Hulk #15 review later this week…if you’re lucky. And people say I don’t have a heart.

What’s everybody else buying this week?

Why So Serious Lightning

When I was putting together my TGS ’09 video games trailer post I couldn’t find the new one for Final Fantasy XIII at the time so I just used the last trailer instead. Well, the FFXIII TGS trailer is finally up so here it is in all of it’s seven minute plus goodness with subtitles.

Hey everyone, Elliott here.  Just saw this item that will be available via Entertainment Earth in 2010:

EEbatgirl_bust

I’ve gotta say that Barbara Gordon never looked so good!  It’s a great piece, with a classic style and something I wouldn’t mind having on my bookshelf.

Who do YOU have on YOUR book shelf?

Elliott

Hello everybody, Elliott here. Here’s a bit that the liberal media doesn’t want you to see:


In the words of Jar Jar Binks: How rude!

Oh yeah, and if you’re not buying Detective Comics because you think you’re getting a ‘lesbian hero shoved down (your) throats’ you’re an idiot.

See you on the flip side,

Double Boot to the Face

Who: Kate Kane a.k.a Batwoman

Where: Detective Comics #857

Why: In the first three parts of this storyline we have seen Kate Kane rely on her father for intel and support while battling Alice but when the time comes for her to step up, take charge and be the hero on her own Kate proves that she is more than fully capable of doing so. After saving all of Gotham and her father, Kate Kane has earned the title of Batwoman and a place along side the rest of the Bat family.

Add to that the surprise twist ending and Alice is now cemented as the perfect arch nemesis of the Batwoman character. Need more reasons? Be sure to check out my post from earlier this week where I discuss Batwoman a bit more.
