Marvel Comics First Issues Coming December 2016

Hey there my comic loving friends, I can hardly believe that I am saying this but “Welcome To December!!!” – Yeah we are here and that means that 2016 will soon be making its exit and opening up the door to a brand new year. I’m starting off the month in the usual fashion with our comic book first issue narratives and am going to do the Marvel Comics stuff first this time because there are more new titles launching this month and I want you to have a jump on them for your weekly pull list. As always there are numerous different variant covers available for these titles but some you might have to special request from your shop since I know many don’t stock them all. Other titles are currently running but we are only showcasing the first issues with help from the Marvel Entertainment publicity team. Here we go.

"IVX" #1
“IVX” #1

IVX #1 (of 6): THIS IS IT! The X-Men and Inhumans have been on a collision course since the link was proven between the Inhumans’ precious Terrigen Mist and the sickness and death of many mutants. When Beast discovers that the mutants have only two weeks before the planet is uninhabitable for them, an Inhuman/mutant war is unavoidable. Co-written by Charles Soule (Uncanny Inhumans, Daredevil) and Jeff Lemire (Extraordinary X-Men, Moon Knight), IVX delivers sensational set pieces, gargantuan grudge matches, all drawn by the sensational Leinil Francis Yu! Whether you’re for the X-MEN or the INHUMANS, IVX promises to shatter the Marvel Universe as you know it!

“Weirdo A Go-Go” by Wednesday 13

Artist: Wednesday 13
Title: “Weirdo A Go-Go”
Label: Horror High Productions
Release Date: 2/5/2008
Genre: Dark Comedy
Rating: 2.5/5

Before I began examining the debut DVD for Wednesday 13’s “Weirdo A Go-Go” I have to say that I love this guys music and the total presentation he does with his fun brand of Horror Punk. So when the musician announced his plans to release an absurd little video called “Weirdo A Go-Go”, the question would be what on Earth could he have in store for us. The answer is quite simply something that comes off as a far darker and more obnoxious version of Captain Kangaroo meets a little bit of PeeWee’s Playhouse tossed in for good measure after one has been on a serious bender. That being said the appeal of such a release is limited to Mr. 13’s staunchest supporters or perhaps fans of “Greg The Bunny”, and the more obscure “Puppets Who Kill” program. The program itself presents us with Wednesday 13 as both the human host and witness to the shenanigans of the odd assortment of puppets who make up the cast of characters. The language and antics are definitely more along the parental advisory side and while some are amusing, at times others are rather inane. I think that was done more for plan than by accident. Wednesday 13 also acts as the emcee to some vintage Horror movie clips and I felt that this is the avenue that he should have stuck with since it works better with the persona he portrays as a musician. The extensive liner notes inside the DVD line out why he chose to avoid this route and I hate to disagree with him, but I think he should have done it despite his reservations.
