Comics Alliance x Infinity + 05 = Intergalactic / Planetary

CA_Infinity05

We're fast approaching the end of Marvel's sprawling space war/alien invasion crossover event Infinity, with one more issue to come. If you thought the story's two main threads -- the war against the Builder armada on the one hand and Thanos's invasion of Earth on the other -- were going to neatly come together, well... you may be disappointed. They are in the same comic, however.

War is over. Give Thanos a chance.

Spoilers follow.

Comics Alliance X ‘Infinity’ + 4 = Hammer Time [Spoilers]

CA_Infinity04

I just flew in from New York Comic Con and boy, is my copy late! The fourth issue of Marvel's Infinity shipped a week ago, but I've been so busy covering Marvel's gently-teased future plans that I've fallen horribly behind again. (Gallimaufry! Rick Remender, Skottie Young, Marvel NOW-er, 2015! Hamantaschen! Dan Slott, Ryan Stegman, Marvel NOW-est, 2016!)

Thankfully it's theoretically impossible to be late for Infinity. That's basic math.

Spoilers ahead!

Comics Alliance X ‘Infinity’ + 3 = The Mellow Sounds of Blackagar Boltagon

CA_Infinity03

Reader, this installment of Comics Alliance X Infinity, our recap of Marvel's latest big crossover event, is running shamefully late, but I swear I have a good excuse. I've been playing Avengers Alliance on Facebook all weekend. Now, I know that doesn't sound like a good excuse, but look, they're running an Infinity tie-in mission, so it's basically research, all right? And I don't think you fully understand how badly I need to unlock Black Bolt as a playable character.

But the comic version of Infinity won't wait forever. Or will it? My editors certainly won't, so let's jump back into the Infinity whirlpool with issue #3, by writer Jonathan Hickman and the returning art team of Jerome Opeña, Dustin Weaver and Justin Ponsor. Spoilers ahead!

Comics Alliance X ‘Infinity’ + 2 = Meanwhile, At The Star War [Spoilers]

CA_Infinity02

Welcome back to the Comics Alliance guide to Marvel Comics' Infinity, where we disentangle the Möbius strip of writer Jonathan Hickman's database-powered brain. When last we left the action in Infinity #1, the Avengers were heading into space to fight the Builder fleet, which left the planet undefended against Thanos. For a certain value of undefended. Only most of the superheroes were still on Earth. Like those 50 State Initiative guys. They can't all be on Arcade's Murder Islands, can they? Is there a 50 State Murderpeligo that Dennis Hopeless hasn't told us about?

Issue #2, with art by Jerome Opeña, Dustin Weaver and Justin Ponsor, opens with the arrival of Thanos's horror circus, the greyest show on Earth. The Avengers, meanwhile, have joined up with a host of alien races, had a big space battle, and lost it. That seems like a bit of a jump in the narrative, but Hickman has created an unorthodox storytelling challenge for himself, and the results are a little variable.

Best Art Ever (This Week) – 07.05.13

Untitled-1

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great images on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, and some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it’s awesome.
