Jason Aaron & Ron Garney Announce Creator-Owned ‘Men Of Wrath’ Through Marvel’s Icon Imprint

Men of Wrath, Jason Aaron and Ron Garney

Since its inception, Marvel's Icon imprint has been a way for established Marvel creators to pursue creator-owned work while keeping things "in the family," so to speak, resulting in books like Kick Ass from Mark Millar and John Romita Jr., and Brian Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming's Powers. Now, though, Icon is adding another pair of long-time Marvel creators to its roster, as Jason Aaron and Ron Garney launch Men of Wrath, a comic with a title so metal that it actually rivals their previous collaboration, which was a comic about Norse gods bashing things with hammers.

Set in the South, the story is described by Aaron as an examination of a cycle of violence, from its beginning to its culmination as it's passed down through a family to "the worst of the bunch."

Captain America 10 Essential Comic Book Runs

You might have heard that there's a new Captain America movie coming out on April 4. If Marvel's marketing department has gotten its way, this news may very well be tattooed on the inside of your eyelids in phosphorescent ink. Let's say, however, you've never read any Captain America comics before, but now that he's been legitimized as a multi-million dollar film franchise, you're suddenly very interested in that dude with little wings on his head carrying around one of Uncle Sam's rims.

Since being created by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon all the way back in 1941, the hero also known as the Sentinel of Liberty has passed through the hands of some eminently talented writers, artists and editors. Some of these creative teams depicted Cap's adventures for a few months -- some of them for a few years -- before passing the torch to the next creators to keep the flame (or trademark) alive. In comic books, these tenures are called "runs," "series"  or "eras," and they're the readers' way of distinguishing one era of a character's saga from the next. Chances are you're not sure where to dive into a a publishing legacy that's spanned more than 70 years, so here is a list, in chronological order, of the Sentinel of Liberty's 10 most interesting and influential comic book runs.

‘Uncanny X-Force’ #1: Mutants Got Problems, Y’all [Review]

uxf01

The X-Men have been through some pretty rough stuff. That's actually kind of their deal; "going through rough stuff" is the default setting for those mutants, and the only time they're not going through rough stuff is when they've either just finished going through something terrible or are just about to go through something terrible, two states that tend to coexist on two or three pages about twice a year.

Right now, though, the X-Men h
