As a kid, I was already into printed media. Mostly requesting my parents to buy the Sunday paper ‘coz of the full page line-up of Pinoy Komiks or American 4-5 panel strips. But before that, I was so into the old-school classic “Combatron”, which I would describe as a space odyssey of “Rockman (Megaman)”.
Right now, with all the ravings for the superhero movies I was enticed to return to my comic book reading days. Back then I remember that I somehow collected a few X-Men volumes which up to this point I forgot where it came from and where did I put the damn things. LOL.
So, comic book-now-reading it-now-finding it-hard… I turned to my trusted friend~nemy the interwebs. And lo-and-behold! I found some yearly events of Marvel very enticing.
I first finished “Age of Ultron”, which was weird ‘coz a leak showed that it would be the next Avengers film. Heh, so this became my prelude to the film. I loved the ending which I didn’t expect… SRSLY.
Then came a thought about the “Watchmen” issue of the world not wanting heroes, or wanting heroes to be moderated. So it came, I found “Civil War”!! And boy did I love this one! Killer plot, killer art and killer action scenes.
Then came Planet Hulk, and the idea that inside what others think is a monster was for others a redeemer. Then a bomb exploded… yadah yadah… *boom* “World War Hulk”, which was revenge in Hulk style.
Now, Im on my 4th Marvel event – “Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe”. A bit anti-climactic on the title, huh? But nooooo!! This ones a killer. Heh, merc joke. LOL. Cross fingers that I would be able to sleep early, ‘coz right now I’m already getting the jitters for wanting to read the whole series.
Another upcoming event is the “Secret Wars” series, and right now I’d better get updated on who’s who for the primer. 😀
