Jimmy Attempts To Read All Of Secret Wars 49 (It’s Finally Over Edition)

secret_wars_9_cover

Well, the day is finally here.  The last issue of Secret Wars is finally in our grubby little hands or sitting digitally on our computers, tablets or other electronic devices.  It’s been a long time coming.  I’ll look at the finale in all its spoiler-y glory after the cut.

Unfortunately for me (and probably for you), this is not my last Secret Wars post.  I still have some odds and ends to finish up my walkthrough, namely twenty or so issues that I haven’t covered.  (Excluding the Toys R Us exclusive giveaway Armor Wars #0.5…which I couldn’t find a copy of first or last.)

Jimmy Attempts To Read All Of Secret Wars 43

secret_wars_8
The end is near for Secret Wars (well, there is still a month to go), but not for my write ups.  Sigh.  So much to do.  Anyway, last week finally saw the release of Secret Wars #7 Part Two aka Secret Wars #8.  I believe that only leaves the following for this long, long event:

Ultimate End #5 – December 16th
Secret Wars #9 – January 13th, 2016

After the break I’ll take a look at that penultimate Secret Wars issue as well as play some catch-up with the following books: Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #3, Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows #3, Red Skull #2, Silver Surfer #15 and X-Men ’92 (Infinite) #6

Be sure to check out our latest Secret Wars Power Rankings, which also features links to the other parts of my read through.

Another Podcast Reaction: Secret Wars Edition

This week on the podcast, the Gabbingest of Geeks stopped to discuss the fact that they took the podcast’s birthday off.

Lazy goofs.

They also discussed time travel.  But I covered my time travel thoughts a long time ago, so I am not doing that again any time soon.  Besides, it looks like Jimmy is covering the time travel stuff just judging from his title, so I’ll leave it be.

Instead, let me say a few things about the current Secret Wars.

They Killed Everybody

Marvel Comics released the first issue of the new Secret Wars this past week.  The issue in question ended with the destruction of both the main Marvel and Ultimate universes aside from a handful of survivors on both sides.

How likely is it that this new status quo will remain?  What do you think?

That One Time The Human Torch Got Snuffed…

"How about a hug, Iceman?"
“How about a hug, Iceman?”

I decided, after enjoying Jonathan Hickman’s work leading up to Secret Wars (you know, that thing I did that series of near-Wikipedia entries on), to go back and read through what was by all accounts an equally epic Fantastic Four run.

Yesterday as I type this, I read the trade that included the “death” of Johnny Storm, the Human Torch.  Yeah, even if I didn’t know he was coming back, I wouldn’t have believed it.

Road To Secret Wars Part 6

Pow!  Zap!  Bop!  Bop?
Pow! Zap! Bop! Bop?

Continuing the recap on the run-up to Marvel’s new Secret Wars, as seen in Jonathan Hickman’s Avengers/New Avengers runs, if at least for the sake of Jimmy Impossible.

As ever, SPOILERS behind the cut.
