Make it So: Classic Marvel Animation on DVD by Jerry Whitworth
Between the DC Comics Classic Collection and Warner Archive Collection, fans of classic DC Comics programs can have almost everything the company has produced for television on DVD for their collection. If you’re a fan of Marvel on the other hand, you’re not so fortunate. While Marvel has definitely become better about releasing older material such as the much sought after 1990s X-Men animated series, fans of their animated adaptations of yesteryear have eagerly awaited even more releases (unless you live in the United Kingdom, which has been pretty lucky with getting their fix). The while, Hasbro has made lucrative sales of DVDs for classic series like G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, Transformers, and Jem, which was a collaborative effort with Marvel, so much so it would seem as we’ve seen DVD releases of Transformers seasons unaired in the US and of the DIC seasons of G.I. Joe. Lets take a look at some of the series Marvel fans eagerly await.Read More
Untold Tales of the Punisher Max #1 Review by Derf
Writer: Jason Starr
Artist: Roland Boschi
Color: Dan Brown
48 Pages – Full Color
The Punisher is one of my favorite characters of all time. That is why his books are some of the only titles that I get from Marvel. The first time I was introduced to the Punisher was in the Amazing Spider-man vol. 1 #135. When I saw this vigilante dressed in black with a large skull on his chest, I was immediately interested.
Let’s fast forward to 2012. I just read the Untold Tales of the Punisher Max #1 and I was very impressed. For those of you who do not follow Marvel, the Max titles are the ones with explicit content and are not suitable for minors. Issue #1 tells the story of a man named Jimmy who is asked to kill someone to clear a debt he has with a loan shark. If he doesn’t do it by midnight the next day they will come back and kill him. The comic shows the anguish going through his mind and follows him throughout the 24 hours he was given. Well, eventually his decisions lead to a meeting with the Punisher. And for those of who know how the Punisher operates, you know that can’t be good.Read More
