Five Reasons To Read Simonson, Martin, And Workman’s ‘Ragnarok’

Ragnarok, IDW

I like to think I do a pretty good job keeping up with what's out on the stands, but somehow, some way, I managed to completely miss IDW's Ragnarok from Walt Simonson, Laura Martin, and John Workman, until just this week --- and believe me, I'm kicking myself for it. Ragnarok offers action-packed high adventure and sweeping storytelling from some of my favorite creators in comics, with a story that hooked me from the first page.

Of course, the bright side to coming late to the book is that I managed to catch up on the first three issues all at once rather than wait, and with how much I loved it, I'm pretty sure the bimonthly schedule that the book seems to be on would've been a nightmare. If you've been on the fence about picking up Ragnarok, here's five good reasons to give it a shot.

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations 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, awnd some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it is awesome.

Marvel Unlimited Edition: Fin Fang Foom

Untitled-2

The Marvel Unlimited app is a gigantic, messy cache of awesome and terrible old comic books: a library of 13,000 or so back issues of Marvel titles, available on demand for subscribers with tablets or mobile phones. Like any good back-room longbox, it's disorganized and riddled with gaps, but it's also full of forgotten and overlooked jewels, as well as a few stone classics. In Marvel Unlimited Edition, Eisner-winning critic Douglas Wolk dives into the Unlimited archive to find its best, oddest and most intriguing comics.

In today's edition: Who needs Godzilla when you've got Fin Fang Foom? One of the most ridiculous of the many monsters Stan Lee and Jack Kirby dreamed up in the pre-Fantastic Four era, the giant green (or maybe orange) dragon was first revived in 1974, and has shown up on a fairly regular basis over the past couple of decades. Sometimes (as in Kurt Busiek and Sean Chen's Iron Man) he's taken very seriously; sometimes (as in Warren Ellis and Stuart Immonen's nextwave) he's not. Here are some of his most entertaining appearances in the Unlimited archives.

Ask Chris #196: He Stood Alone At Gjallerbru

Ask Chris art by Erica Henderson

Q: What is the best redemption scene or storyline in comics? -- @yellfeat

A: It's funny, I was just talking about why there aren't a whole lot of stories where villains become heroes in the latest episode of Here's The Thing, and how they almost never work out the way you want them to. That might've been my pessimism creeping in, because there are certainly examples of it working really well -- one viewer on Twitter mentioned the Pied Piper from Flash -- but I blame the wording. A face turn and a redemption aren't quite the same thing, and if you're looking for the single best example of the latter, there's not even a question about which one it is.

Skurge stood alone at Gjallerbru, man. And that was enough.

‘RoboCop Vs. Terminator’ Gets Two Deluxe Editions From Dark Horse, As Befitting The Greatest Crossover Of All Time

RoboCop vs. Terminator, Dark Horse Comics

Back in the '90s, the comics industry was lousy with crossovers, and most of them were exactly that: lousy. The dream of seeing your two of your favorite properties collide was often undercut by a poor execution that didn't really leave anyone happy with the results. And then there was Frank Miller and Walter Simonson's RoboCop vs. Terminator, quite possibly the single greatest crossover of all time. Not only is it a thrilling, complex story where everything makes sense in the context of both properties, but, well, it's Frank Miller and Walter Simonson doing RoboCop vs. Terminator at the height of their careers. It's pretty great.

It's also been out of print for twenty years, but now, Dark Horse is getting it back into print with the fanfare it deserves. This July, RoboCop vs. Terminator returns with not one, but two special edition hardcovers.
