CR’S TOP FIVE
From Hell, Alan Moore, Eddie Campbell, Pete Mullins
First, let me say I don’t read nearly as many comics as the rest of 4TB, so the wheel on my wheelhouse has fallen off and is wobbling its way elsewhere. With that being said, even my amateur comic knowledge is aware that Alan Moore is kind of a big deal. However, in case someone who knows less than me about comics stumbles on our blog, I’ll drop a little knowledge on you. Watchmen, V for Vendetta, as well as From Hell, have all been adapted into movies. The dude’s a rockstar. Alan Moore could draw a crappy comic on the back of a Denny’s placemat and sell the movie rights to it the next day.
In From Hell, Moore rather ambitiously tries to tackle the illusion wrapped in a mystery stuffed in a Wonder Ball that is the Jack the Ripper Story. Moore, along with the wonderful art of Mullins and Campbell, weave an intricate tale of corruption, sinister plots, and shady government agendas that will have conspiracy theorists tipping their tinfoil caps to Mr. Moore. It’s bloody. It’s suspenseful. It’s pretty bloody awesome.

Jingle bells, Batman smells… OF FEAR!!! It’s Christmas Eve in Gotham and Batman is the Santa the city deserves. He’s got a list a mile long and plenty of coal to dish out. We have an all-star cast of heroes and villains here in Gotham, so let’s have the Bat plane drop us off so that we can explore Batman Arkham Origins!
Marvel has released the first teaser for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Did anyone else catch the fast glimpse of the Winter Soldier? I’ll admit, I got some goosebumps from watching this. Way too excited for this movie. Can’t wait for the full trailer which should be coming out this October 24!
So it indeed looks like the Cap will be getting a new outfit based off of his Super Soldier comic series writer by Ed Brubaker and Dale Eaglesham as artist. I have to say, this looks fantastic and judging by the gloves, this is the outfit we see in the new Captain America: The Winter Soldier poster that was released Tuesday. This costume if I recall correctly, makes a somewhat first appearance in The Avengers Vol 4 #1 written by Brian Michael Bendis with the legendary John Romita Jr as artist, Written by Joseph Nazario
New Poster for Captain America: Winter Soldier
Take a look! Above is the latest poster for the sequel to Captain America. Looks pretty great if you ask me. In it, you can see Steve Rogers, AKA Captain America (can I say Captain America a couple more times?) standing at the edge of a flying SHEILD vehicle. In the background, you’ve got the Helicarrier, some fighter jets, and the Washington Monument in good ol’ DC.
We also may be looking at the back of Cap’s new suit, which was has been reported to be updated with a more uniform-SHEILD-esque look. Note that the helmet is actually much different than Cap’s hooded top in the 2012 Avengers. See below for a comparison to Cap’s previous costumes. Either way, I am excited. The first movie left me wanting a bit more, since it felt like a set up for Avengers. Hopefully this next one feels a bit more stand a lone.
What do you think of the poster? Are you excited to see this movie? Let us know in the comments below!
