With Secret Wars so delayed I thought I might actually get my write ups done before the event finished.  Well, I’ve got approximately 9 days to cover 39 issues.  Not impossible, but going to be tough.   After the break I’ll have a look at Guardians of Knowhere #1-4.  The Bendis/Deodato joint that essentially took the Guradians of the Galaxy shipping slot with the end of the universe.

Jimmy Attempts To Read All Of Secret Wars 40 (Korvac Saga Edition)

Raise your hand if you’ve read the original Korvac Saga?  Let’s see…anyone?  Watson, put your hand down, I know you are lying.  I haven’t read it either, and really don’t know much about it besides it had a small Spider-Man cameo.  It took place in almost a dozen issues of Avengers at the end of the 70’s, so I assume they were involved.  And I think I breifly saw the old school Guardians of the Galaxy as I flipped through looking for that Spider-Man appearance.  So, they are in there too.  And that’s about all I know.

Maybe if I did know more I might have more appreciation for the Secret Wars version of things.  If you have read both, let me know.  After the cut I’ll take a spoilery look at the 2015 Korvac Saga #1-#4.

Comic book superheroes die.  It happens.  Many get better.  A few stay dead.  And then there are the rare few who are almost designed to die and come back.

Once such character in that last category is Drax the Destroyer.

May The A-Force Be With You. (Or No Star Wars/Marvel Crossover For You!)

No Watson, the A is not a reference to their cup size.

Well, it was a fun 12 hours or so of speculation, but one of the classified zones on Battleworld will not be the Star Wars universe.  The “Force” in Marvel’s announcement is not Midicholrian based, but in reference to A-Force…which I guess is some amalgamation of Avengers and X-Force.  By the looks of the cover, it is a team led by She-Hulk and comprised of, well, seems like every female hero in the Marvel Universe.  Girl Power!
