New Marvel #1s

Marvel

I just finished this week’s new #1 issues from Marvel - Wolverine & The X-Men, and The Incredible Hulk. Both were very pleasantly surprising.  I’ve been pretty solidly in DC world the last couple of months, but these issues are definitely reeling me back into Marvel’s universe.

Wolverine & The X-Men was awesome! It moves the X-Men back towards fun and humor again, bringing a wonderful Hogwarts-like feeling with it.  I wasn’t expecting to like this, but I’m pretty much hooked now.  I think it’s a perfect counterbalance to the dark, brooding, philosophical storylines that I’ve enjoyed form X-Men in the past and hope to continue enjoying in the Uncanny X-Men relaunch next month.

The only reason I picked up Hulk is because it was on sale for $1 at More Fun Comics on the Denton Square (shameless plug for my favorite comic shop).  The issue really surprised me with how enjoyable it is, and it closed with a fantastic curveball.  I’m seriously considering adding the series to my pull list.

Next up, I’ll be enjoying Green Lantern: New Lanterns, Flash, and All Star Western.  Comics rock!
