Article by Gregg Katzman

There are a lot of great comic book series out there, and they all stick in your memory for totally different reasons. Some of them will make you think about important and topical issues, while others do a brilliant job with drama and emotion. Some comics, however, focus on keeping a smile on your face the entire time. Well, Skottie Young and Jean-Francois Beaulieu’s I Hate Fairyland is definitely one of those comics that aims to make you grin. This Image Comics title is so impressively fun that I can’t stop smiling and laughing whenever I read a new chapter. Every issue is overflowing with creativity and such enjoyable silliness. So, it should come as no surprise that the seventh issue – which, at the time of this writing, goes on sale tomorrow – continued to remind me why I love this beautiful, clever, and hilarious series so very much.

Get your hands on a copy of Civil War II #3 here: http://bit.ly/29QlTgZ

There’s a new inhuman in the Marvel Universe. The guy’s name is Ulysses, and he has quite a power: it appears he can predict the future. Captain Marvel wants to use this ability to prevent tragedies and crimes from occurring. Iron Man, however, thinks it’s wrong to take action against someone before they’ve committed a crime – or maybe even before they’ve thought of it. Now, Ulysses had a vision of the Hulk lashing out. With Civil War II #3, Captain Marvel, Iron Man, and many other heroes visit Bruce Banner to talk about the violent vision Ulysses had about the Green Goliath. But when all is said and done, one character is no longer alive.

Article by Gregg Katzman; variant cover by Rafael Albuquerque

What’s your favorite Wolverine story? For many of you, I’m guessing Weapon X, Enemy of the State, and the Frank Miller and Chris Claremont limited series immediately came to mind, and understandably so – they’re all entertaining for totally different reasons. However, my top choice – and probably a top choice for many other people out there – is Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s Old Man Logan. Now, Marvel has pulled the older James “Logan” Howlett from his twisted future and thrown him right into the present. This modern era may be very different, but could his future – a future where deadly villains joined forces to slaughter the heroes – still occur? Wolverine can’t shake the thought from his adamantium-laced head, and that important question is the driving force behind Jeff Lemire, Andrea Sorrentino, and Marcel Maiolo’s very awesome Old Man Logan #8.

Dynamite Comics revives two classic heroes in an ultimate team up that will have any fan rejoicing.  This is not another satirical look at the Lone Ranger or the Green Hornet. This is a period piece that finally, puts our heroes in the same era and it’s brilliantly interwoven within historical facts and figures of the time.
