Brian’s Comic Book Picks for December 12th


Cable and X-Force #1

Cable started X-Force many years ago before going lone wolf with the occassional partner in crime. Now he is back with a new team and they are being hunted by the world. Cable, Domino, Forge, Colossus and Dr. Nemesis all have their own personal demons and problems but anything they have done in the past pales in comparison to what people think they have done now as they are labeled mutant terrorists and are being hunted down by American law enforcement and another new team in the Uncanny Avengers. Cable has been through a lot over the past few years and it just never seems to slow down. In this new adventure he has his hands full. It’s a good thing one of them is cybernetic and really big.

Change #1

A foul-mouthed struggling screenwriter who moonlights as a car thief. An obscenely wealthy rapper completely disconnected from the real world. A dying cosmonaut on his way back to Earth. Los Angeles is being toyed with by destructive forces that repeatedly find the city through time and swallow it whole, and those three are the only people able to save it – if they survive the fanatics who live in the hills, National Security Agency agents, and the horrors that lurk in the Pacific Ocean.

Fantastic Four #2

Reed Richards has a secret he has been keeping from his family. He appears to be dying and has concocted a plan to try and prevent that from happening. He and his family have to leave time and space for what will be four minutes our time but a year to them. This story continues here as the Fantastic Four prepare to leave. They will not depart without leaving our world protected though. Ant-Man, Medusa, She-Hulk and Miss Thing shall do their best to fill in for Marvel’s first family while they are gone. 4 minutes does not seem like a lot of time but in the Marvel Universe a lot of bad can happen. Issue One was a good intro to what we can expect from the new creative team and their design for the Fantastic Four and its ever growing extended family. I like what I read and look forward to more.
