Bizarre New World: Father/Son momentThis fun little story does our geeky hearts proud, and comes to us from Bizarre New World creator, Skipper Martin.

Towards the beginning of 2008, Skipper ran a contest on his website in conjunction with the release of a recent BNW story, Population Explosion. The winner of the contest would receive a custom-built light saber from Advanced Light Weaponry (a prize that made perfect sense in the context of the book).

The winner, Frank Wilson, was chosen, and the saber was shipped to him in Texas, with a request that he send back a picture of himself holding the saber to be posted on the website. It wasn’t until a year later that Skipper finally received the picture, along with an explanation of the delay…

Weekly Comic Book Pulls for 4-30 and 5-07-08

Yes, enough with the two weeks’ worth of comics reviews, I know. Too many big books over the last few weeks, so this one’s gonna be a big one. I’ve got lots of stuff to cover and recommend, even though you’ve probably bought it, read it, and stored it away by this point. In fact there’s so much I have to break this into two parts: one for Marvel and DC books, and one for the indies. If you have questions, comments, complaints, by all means leave me a comment. Let’s get some discussion going people! On to the books.

PULL LIST 04-30 & 05-07-08

  • DC Universe #0
  • New Avengers #40
  • Mighty Avengers #13
  • Secret Invasion #2
  • Avengers Initiative #12
  • Amazing Spider-man #558
  • Batman: Death Mask #2
  • Logan #3
  • Ultimate Human #4
  • Rann/Thanagar Holy War #1

DC Universe #0
The big one from two weeks ago, I will compliment the book for its low price point. If it had been a full $3 I would be screaming bloody murder, but at 50 cents, I can stomach a book of trailers for other stories to come. I don’t quite see how this bridges the gap between Countdown and Final Crisis as was promised in the solicitations, but then again I didn’t read Countdown, so maybe I’m just missing lots of info. What you get here is a collection of prologues to future DC books, specifically the Legion of 3 Worlds mini, Grant Morrison’s Batman R.I.P. arc, and upcoming arc of Wonder Woman, next summers Geoff Johns’ written Green Lantern event “Blackest Night”, and finally Final Crisis itself. I don’t have to spoil who’s narrating the framing device, as you’ve probably heard that it’s Barry Allen, the original Flash. The weird thing about this issue, is that it’s seems like it’s designed to sell the future stories to DC fans, who are going to buy all these books anyway. I’m not much of a DC reader these days, and the previews did not entice me to pick up any of the books I wasn’t already going to buy, so I don’t quite see the point of the issue. I will say that DC went out and made sure their best artists provided the interior work, and the book looks great. DC fans will enjoy it, mostly because they’re the only one’s who will know what’s going on. For other readers, if you’ve got an extra fiddy cents, you can do worse, but don’t expect too much. —3 out of 5
