October Comics

05 November, 2006

After each month, I will make a quick and short check of all the comics I have read, and of those published during the month that I intend to read but, for one reason or another, I haven't. The description of the comic is copied from Marvel.com

Después de casa mes, haré un breve resumen de los comics que he leído, o de lo publicado ese mes que me quiero leer, pero que por lo que sea no he leído. La descripción del comic está copiada directamente de marvel.com, y no la voy a traducir



The Story: With the aid of the most dedicated and enthusiastic fanbase in the history of Marveldom Assembled, Spider-Girl--the little comic that could--defied all the odds and reached a momentous 100 issues! This complete 32-page special recounts the full story of Spider-Man’s daughter for new readers...and also allows her longtime fans to relive her greatest moments.
32 PGS./All Ages ...$1.99

Just a quick review of the 100 Spider-girl issues. Sort of copy-paste. Good to catch-up if you haven't read anything before and you want to read Amazing Spider-girl, nothing else. 5/10

Un rápido resumen de los 100 números de Spider-girl (que no recuerdo bien, pero me temo que no se publica en España). Es un copy-paste, bueno sólo si no has leído nada de ella antes y te quieres poner un poco al día antes de coger el Amazing Spider-girl #1. 5/10

The Story:CIVIL WAR tie-in!
It had to happen! Amidst the tumult and tensions of CIVIL WAR, the Fantastic Four break up! Who will toe the line, who will join the resistance, and who will leave the battlefield altogether? And is this the end for Marvel’s First Family?
32 PGS./Rated A ...$2.99

It was about time Suzzie dumped this asshole! Susan and Jhonny joined the resistance, Ben leaves the FF to go to France until all this mess calms down, Spiderman has more and more doubts each moment... This will turn Marvel Universe upside down! 8/10

Ya era hora de que Suzzie dejara a este capullo! Susan y Jhonny se pasan a la Resistencia, Ben emigra a Francia hasta que las cosas se calmen, Spiderman tiene más y más dudas... esto va a dejar el Universo Marvel patas arriba! 8/10

The Story: Wolverine has been injured before, but never like this. Blasted with 5,000 rounds of machine gun shells and lifted to the edge of earth’s atmosphere by a giant robot, Wolverine was 85,000 feet in the air when he finally disabled the killing machine. Now, after a horrendous descent and fiery crash into a rural Nebraska cornfield, he lies at the edge of death, lapsing in and out of a coma as his body desperately tries to heal. And that’s when things really get bad.
The men who sent the robot to destroy Wolverine have come to finish the job. The townsfolk who witnessed the crash have gathered up a mob to hunt down and destroy the alien that’s landed. And Wolverine’s fate just might rest in the hands of the strange little girl who first found him in that dark cornfield. A strange little girl with an affinity for taking care of odd creatures, and whose family holds a deep, dark secret hidden from the light of day... House of Blood and Sorrow is an all new 34-page chilling story just in time for Halloween! Written by David Lapham (Stray Bullets) and illustrated by David Aja (Daredevil, X-Men Unlimited)
This Giant Size edition also includes a special Classic tie-in to Wolverine Origins with reprints of X-Men 6 and 7 by Jim Lee, featuring Omega Red and Sabretooth!

I cannot say I really enjoy CW FL. I think the best part of the comic are the last pages, with real letters and poems from war times. The rest,... well, I think is kind of messy to mix up so many stories in so few pages. 6/10

No puedo decir que me guste mucho CW FL. Creo que lo mejor del comic son las últimas páginas, con cartas y poemas reales. El resto... bueno, creo que es un poco lioso mezclar tantas historias en tan pocas páginas. 6/10

The Story:It’s the end of Chris Yost and Craig Kyle’s first year on New X-Men! Saying it’s been a tough year is an understatement! But it’s not over yet. The students at Xavier’s still have Nimrod to deal with. And before this issue is over, another New X-Men will fall!
32 PGS./Rated T+ ...$2.99

I love this serie. Maybe Paco Medina is not the best drawer in the world, but he is quite good. Nice chicks (Laura and Nori can compete with Rachel and Betsy, no doubt that for a second), very powerful guys (ok, maybe sometimes Hellion is just too powerful), and interesting stories. 7/10

Me encanta esta serie. Puede que Paco Medina no sea el mejor dibujante del mundo, pero está bastante bien. Tias buenas (Laura y Nori pueden competir con Rachel y Betsy, no lo dudes un segundo), tios poderosos (vale, a veces se pasan un pelo con Hellion) e historias interesantes. 7/10

I'm really starting to like this girl! I don't like very much the pencils, anyway. 6/10

Me está empezando a gustar de verdad esta chica! De todas formas, no es que me entusiasmen los lápices de la serie 6/10

The Story: “Savior”, Part 2 of 5
During the Cold War, Logan—along with Team X—performed several secret missions inside Russia, one of which was the sabotage of Russia’s fledgling “Super Soldier” program and the destruction of the program’s result--in particular, the psychotic cyborg known as Omega Red. Logan’s memory of this mission has only recently returned to him...but Omega Red has thought of nothing else ever since. It’s time for some payback.

The Story: “The Domino Principle”
The CIVIL WAR has torn them apart and now, the President of Rumekistan has to make an executive order -- execute DEADPOOL! Is CABLE a proponent of capitol punishment? If so, what will Deadpool’s last meal be?
32 PGS./Rated A ...$2.99

Civil War has put Cable and Deadpool on different sides, and nothing will ever be the same again. I love the athmosphere that Nicieza gives to this comic book. Pity they change so often the drawer. 8/10

La Guerra Civil ha puesto a Cable y Masacre en bandos distintos. Nada volverá a ser lo mismo. Me encanta el aire que le da Nicieza a la serie. Lástima los cambios de dibujante. 8/10.

32 PGS./Rated T+ ...$2.99

I didn't like this LS, neither the plot nor the draws. And you don't need it to follow CW. 4/10

No me ha gustado nada esta LS, ni el argumento ni los dibujos. Y encima no hace falta para seguir CW. 4/10

The Story: “Equinox,” Part 1 of 5
When the Son of Satan is your best option, God help you.
New Orleans. The Big Easy. The membrane between our world and the underworld has always been a little thinner here. Now, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the outpouring of human misery has drawn demons like sharks to a bloodbath. What better time for Damian Hellstorm --- a.k.a. The Son of Satan -- to pay a visit?
It starts with the doctor who delivers a baby that vanishes into the night. A doctor who is devoured by demons wearing New Orleans PD badges. Demons who work for someone--or something--that’s descended on the Big Easy and doesn’t’ give a damn who Hellstorm or his father is. Something that’s harvesting body parts in a furious race toward unspeakable purposes. This is The Son of Satan as you’ve never seen him before, brought to you by acclaimed novelist Alexander Irvine (The Narrows), with searing art by Russell Braun (Animal Man) and Klaus Janson.
32 PGS./Cardstock Cover/Explicit Content ...$3.99

Not everything in the world are cute girls in spandex costumes! Some explicit content and a different story are good now and then. 8/10

No todo en el mundo son tías buenas en trajes de spandex! Un poco de contenido explícito y una historia distinta están bien de vez en cuando. 8/10

More hunting down rogue heroes. Nothing special about it. 6/10

Más cazar heroes rebeldes. Nada de especial. 6/10

The Story: CIVIL WAR Tie-In!
“Vendetta,” Part 6
This is it! The senses-shattering conclusion to the Civil War tie-in Vendetta! It had to come down to this: At 30 thousand feet, aboard the SHIELD Helicarrier, it’s Logan vs. SHIELD’s elite Super Human Restraint Unit...and one of the Marvel Universe’s most powerful super heroes: The Sentry! Logan started this story as the hunter, but he’s finishing it as the prey!

I don't like Humberto Ramos' pencils. Not at all. And the story... well, it can be resumed in the end of the first Wolverine's CW tie-in: 'I been an avenger for a couple'a of months now. And I finally have something to avenge.' 6/10

No me gustan los dibujos de Humberto Ramos. Nada. Y la historia... se puede resumir en el final del primer número del tie-in de Wolverine con CW. 6/10

The Story:It all climaxes here: The final showdown with Mr. Tryp and Singularity, X-Factor’s desperate race to save all the former mutants from annihilation, and the truth behind the shocking traitor in their midst.
32 PGS./Rated T+ ...$2.99

It's not my favourite stile, nor the plots nor the draws, and besides I think they tried to make something a bit more black and it felt between two waters. Anyway, X-Factor is a different alternative to the classic superheroes comic. I like Layla character. 7/10.

No es mi estilo favorito, ni en los dibujos ni en el argumento, y además creo que intentaron hacer algo más negro y se han quedado entre dos aguas. De todas formas, X-Factor es una propuesta alternativa al típico comic de superheroes. Me gusta el personaje de Layla. 7/10.

32 PGS./Rated T+ ...$2.99

I don't follow Cap serie usually, so, I don't understand what is Bucky doing there. Nevermind. 6/10

No leo la serie del Capi normalmente, así que no entiendo qué hace Bucky ahí. Tampoco importa. 6/10

This issue ties New Avengers, House of M, Civil War and Son of M together! Be there for this very important chapter fully painted by the amazing Adi Granov! Guest-starring the Inhumans!!!
32 PGS./Rated A ...$2.99

More troubled people chosing side in CW. Anyway, this issue has some interest in the Inhuman point of view about all of this. Things are really different from outside. 7/10

Más gente con problemas eligiendo bando. De todas formas, este número nos ofrece un punto de vista muy particular del conflicto por los Inhumanos. Las cosas se ven muy distintas desde fuera. 7/10.

It’s Camelot’s last stand! New Excalibur faces a mysterious race of dragons that threatens to end history as we know it!

A very interesting story, just lest hope the end would be up to it. And even if Bachalo is not my favourite drawer... well, the guy has some style. 8/10

Una historia interesante, esperemos que el final esté a la altura. Y aunque Bachalo no es mi dibujante favorito... bueno, el tio tiene estilo. 8/10
