Who Remains Inverted? (Axis Spoilers)
Well, Superior Iron Man #1 may have given some spoilers with its opening as to who remained inverted and who did not at the end of Axis. You may have had some clues from solicitations for Marvel's weekly comic Wolverines as well But in today's Axis we see it all happen, as Tony Stark deploys the plan mentioned above… That's[...]
A Comic Show – A Sunstone Christmas And A S.H.I.E.L.D. NYE!
This week closed out Axis with #9, and I enjoyed the finale Not all the pieces got put back, and I'm excited to see the changes to the Marvel Universe as they play out in Uncanny Avengers and beyond Like in Superior Iron Man #3, Tony's still a douche and he doesn't see eye to[...]
The Death Of A Hero In Today's Marvel Comics (AXIS Spoilers) UPDATE
Last week's issue of Axis revealed that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver were not the biological  children of Magneto, leaving them open to be recreated as Inhumans characters ahead of the Avengers: Age Of Ultron movie and away from Fox Studio's grasping hands And today's Axis #8 reiterates that. But there's something bigger going on as well[...]
A Comic Show – Endgame, Axis, And Image!
Aaron Haaland of A Comic Shop in Orlando, Florida, writes: Hey Fandom! It's another week of New Comics Now, that means more Batmans, Axis, and Image. Scott Snyder's Endgame is the pentacle of his and Capullo's run, really it's all payoff I'm loving this Joker, and you should too, even if the face-off Death of the Family[...]

39 Thoughts About 39 Comics – Axis, Harley Quinn, Spider-Woman, Bobs Burgers, Age Of Darkness, Crossed, Zero, Transformers, Peanuts, Magnus, Lumberjanes, Batwoman, Regular Show, Batman Eternal, Batman/Superman, Justice League, Invincible, Winter World, Maxx, Hellraiser, Godzilla, Feary, Dawn/Vampirella, Last Fall, Terminal Hero, My Little Pony, Super Secret Crisis War, Sleepy Hollow, Storyteller: Witches, Star Slammers, Sons Of Anarchy, Solar, Rot & Ruin, Deadly Class, Dicks, God Is Dead, D&D, Bravest Warriors
  Panel of the week there, I think, from Axis #6.   If anyone wants to suggest what part of Harley Quinn's body is named "Brooklyn", we'd be most grateful. Bounce… the twins… finding some clothes… is this some kind of "dog whistle" choice of language to satisfy both potential audiences for Spider-Woman? And with Silk and Spider-Gwen joining[...]

Axis Silhouette Mystery Revealed – It's Brother Voodoo
This was the solicited cover image for Axis #9…. With a silhouetted character on the left. But from this week's Marvel printed ads… Let's zoom in a little. That's Brother Voodoo joining the inversion! Unless, you know, something really extreme happened to Doctor Strange…   This was the solicited cover image for Axis #9….

Over in Axis #3… Oh I don't know SAD HULK has hashtag written all over it. While Over The Garden Wall seems to be having an Axis Inversion event all of its very own. Amazing World Of Gumball #4 gives us a strong expectation of cause and effect.   Ghost Fleet #1 teaches us the value of wearing a seat belt when[...]

Everyone it seems except Tony Stark, in today's Axis #3. That's right, an Extremis app on everyone's smart device That's how the Axis Inversion event has affected Tony Stark – the drinking is merely a sideshow Nice to see he's simultaneously released a version for iOS and Android though I wonder if Windows phones got a[...]
Why You Need To Read Axis #3 And Deadpool #36 Together To Make Sense Of It All
Here's a recommended reading order for today's Axis-related titles. First All-New X-Factor #15 It happens independently of the other books, exploring a world destroyed by the Red Skull's hate And reminding us that President Obama is a fan of Conan The Barbarian comic books But it happens before the events of the next comics. Then the beginning[...]
Susan Storm – Iron Fist?
Here is the cast recap age of Avengers & X-Men: Axis #2, out today. Hang on, who is that at the bottom? Zoom in… Second on the right.   Look, I know certain people at Marvel Comics are very anti-Fantastic Four right now, but that's a bit mean on the Susan Storm, the Invisible Woman[...]
A Comic Show Returns! Death Of Wolvie And Life Of A Comic Show
Last week I was all ready and excited to cover Wytches, Birthright, Sabrina, Batman Endgame, and Axis, but my wife got the flu on Tuesday and I didn't make my return. Today I tackle the actual Death of Wolverine, Logan's Legacy, Axis #2, Edge of the Spider-verse, and a few others Justice League #35 officially starts[...]

The launch of Batman: Endgame, the launch of the new Batgirl, the launch of Axis, the launch of Wytches, more Time Runs Out, Spider-Verse and much more But Batman beat out the heavily hyped eventness of Axis, and Scott Snyder got two in the top ten.

Every Use Of The Word 'Smidgen' In Today's Axis #1
In today's Avengers & X-Men: Axis is all-out war for… everyone.   Everyone gets inverted! But first, Tony Stark has a language-usage leson for The Vision. But Tony is instantly inverted So much that now he starts saying it too! Not just once… But twice! Clearly this is a sign of inversion when reading Avengers & X-Men: Axis[...]
Ms Marvel, The Book That Was Meant To Get Cancelled By Issue 7
Marvel, there are no plans to stop and she is busy writing and plotting up to #11 and maybe now tying the book back more to the wider Marvel Universe, such as to things like Axis.  "When I thought we'd be canceled anytime referring to the wide universe didn't need to be done but now[...]
Ch-Ch-Changes – Earth 2 World's End And Axisness
Any ideas? X-Factor #18 is no longer an Axis crossover… Giuseppe Camuncoli will join the solicited Olivier Coipel on Amazing Spider-Man #9 Erik Burnham will co-write New Warriors #11 with the solicited Christopher Yost.   A few changes 'twixt solicitation and publication that may be of note…. Danny Miki appears to be joining the credits for the upcoming DC weekly Earth 2 Worlds[...]
No, Everyone, This Is Not #ComicGate – Milo Manara Is Still Creating Covers For Marvel
We'd already pointed out that Milo Manara's variant cover for Thor #1, featuring the new female Thor, had slipped to Thor #2. But then I learnt that Milo was no longer doing that cover either, and the solicited cover for Avengers & X-Men: Axis #1 would now be by Siya Oum. Naturally it occurred to me that this could be as a result of the recent fuss[...]

We're Getting A Female Thor… But What About A Female Wolverine?
So yesterday's article on Sabretooth replacing Wolverine during – and after – Axis, was based on reading solicitations, looking at cover images, the usual. This isn't. A Marvel source gets in touch to tell me that Sabretooth is, indeed, becoming the new Wolverine in the Marvel Universe. But not for long. Because after around six months, he too will[...]
