Here is another batch of books from Marvel, with the second appearance in two days by Jason Aaron
All-New Ghost Rider #3
Writer: Felipe Smith
Artist: Tradd Moore
Colorist: Val Staples
Letterer: VC’s Joe Caramagna
Production: Manny Maderos
Assistant Editor: Emily Shaw
Editor: Mark Paniccia
Ghost Rider continues, not only being a great book, but getting better with each issue. Robbie Reyes (and the readers) get to learn a little bit more about the Spirit Of Vengeance, in this case an actual human spirit by the name of Eli. It also appears the Rider and the car really are almost as one, with a rad sequence of Ghost Rider stepping into a shadow, and manifesting as part of the car itself. Everything in this book looks amazing, from the art from Tradd Moore, to the brilliant colors from Val Staples, to the entire package tied together by Manny Maderos. Such a cool book.
Moon Knight #3
Artist: Declan Shalvey
Colorist: Jordie Bellaire
Editors: Ellie Pyle & Nick Lowe
Ghost punks are punching the hell out of folks, Moon Knight attempts to stop them but gets thoroughly trounced, he can’t touch them, but they can and do, touch him. MK seeks guidance from Khonshu, and he is told to look through his assortment of Egyptian artifacts for the tools he needs. When next we see him, he is decked out in armor with a huge bird-skull for a face, and everything he needs to punch the hell out of some ghosts. The art, as always is gorgeous, and I will say it every single time, but Jordie Bellaire colors this book beautifully, it can’t be said enough. It looks so damn good.
Original Sin #1
Writer: Jason Aaron
Artist: Mike Deodato
Colorist: Frank Martin
Letterer: VC’s Chris Eliopoulos
Assistant Editor: Jake Thomas
Editors: Tom Brevoort & Will Moss
This is the issue where Uatu gets bumped off officially, and Nick Fury taking the case of who killed The Watcher (The Orb and somebody else?). He starts assembling teams, I’m not exactly sure why certain characters are assigned to each other, but it’s an intersting mix, with all of them bringing powers or skills that cover the bases. Scott Lang and Emma Frost. The Punisher and Dr Strange, Moon Kight, Winter Soldier and Gamora and so on… So the quest begins, who killed him? Why? How? Aside from shooting him in his gigantic head. What kind of bullets could do that? Why are the fragments glowing?
This is off to a good start, hopefully this will be a decent event.
