A few weird comics made my way to my collection recently.
First I came across a familiar name in the comic book store.
This is the first time I was aware of the fact that CM Punk is a writer for Marvel Comics. I googled it and apparently he wrote a few comics for Marvel already but Drax is his first ongoing title. I bought the first issue but I haven’t got the chance to read it yet.
One comic I did read is Scooby Apocalypse #1.
DC Comics have been hyping this comics for months and… I don’t like it. I love, love Scooby Doo but this comic was to much of a departure of the characters I grown to love. First and foremost the comics are too dark. Velma is part of an organization looking to end the world??? Fred and Daphne are wash up reporters looking for their big break?? Shaggy is a dog trainer and Scooby is a experiment gone wrong?? This is only a Scooby Doo comic in name only as DC Comics could have easily told the story with brand new characters.
Finally I stumbled upon a tragic X-Men character, ForgetMeNot.
ForgetMeNot’s mutant power is like the Silence in Doctor Who. As soon as anyone looks away from him, they instantly forget about his existence. X-Men: Legacy #300 and X-Force #10 are both excellent comics that I can’t recommend enough. His story arc in X-Force #13- 15 wasn’t as good.
