I’m back from the comic shop this week and I got twelve new comics plus a hard cover collection:

  • Fear Agent 13-20 (some on sale back issues)
  • Mysterious the Unfathomable – 6
  • Ex Machina – 43
  • The Trial of Thor – 1
  • Rex Mundi – 18
  • The Starman Omnibus Volume 3
  • And now for a review of something I’ve read recently.

  • “The Incredible Hercules – Love and War” with writing by Fred Pak and Fred Van Lente and art by Clayton Henry and Salva Espin
  • I forgot I bought this book. I bought the hardcover collection when it came out, put it on the shelf next to the other Hercules volumes and promptly forgot about it. I saw the softcover copy in my local comic shop and couldn’t remember purchasing the hardcover one. I went home to look on my shelf and there it was. Weird.

    Much like the other Hercules volumes this book is fun. In this book we get more of the Marvel Universe versions of Greek gods. They are a violent and dysfunctional family and this current run of Hercules brings them more to life than any Marvel version I’ve seen before.

    In this story we also get Marvel’s version of the Amazons. I’m not sure if they’ve appeared before but here they are mythical super warriors who don’t like Hercules or men in general for that matter.

    What follows is a pretty decent super hero/Greek god adventure. This may have even been the best of the Hercules volumes. They are not great or insightful stories but they are fun ones. The art is solid and so is the coloring. So if you’re in the mood for a fun comic check this one out.
