With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, you’d think Marvel would be working harder at wooing me. Instead, they’re dropping the ball with most of their issue #1s. At least DC is putting in some effort of greasing my sexy wheels by announcing an unusual Lex Luthor casting in Batman vs Superman. I’m interested to see what Jessie Eisenberg can do with the character and beyond excited to see Jeremy Irons as Alfred. Never in my life did I expect Scar to be Batman’s #1 man servant! Enough moviespeak, lets get this thing started.
Marvel NOW lackluster kickoff this week had me peeing on almost every issue. Thankfully, Ms Marvel‘s fresh new face alleviated some of my hate. DC needs to put Gothtopia to rest before they lose every Batfan they have. Luckily for them, Forever Evil saved this week’s pull with a Batman/Villain team-up of epic proportions.
As always, if you’re easily offended tread carefully. Pryde’s Picks is full of boisterous inappropriate humor and way too much geek rage. This week features: Ms. Marvel #1, Loki #1, X-Men #1, Wolverine #1, Batman Detective Comics #28, Forever Evil #5, and The Twilight Zone #2
