Last night was a very lucky night for the 30 fans in attendance at Midtown Comics’ special invite only Q&A with Brian Michael Bendis. Not only were these 30 winners chosen at random from over 300 entries, but they walked away with exclusive signed variants, pre-orders of the highly anticipated The United States of Murder Inc., and great stories from an intimate evening with Bendis (we’ll get to those stories in a minute).

Before we begin I just have to say that I’m going to have a little trouble reviewing this film, because I don’t know if it’s physically possible to talk about a movie while jumping up and down with joy. I am of course here to talk about the much anticipated Marvel film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and normally when I review a film I like to keep people guessing as to my opinion, I like to jump between pros and cons, but with this film I have to come out and just flat out say that not only does this movie succeed as a thriller, an action film, and as a pure joy ride, but it succeeds at all of those things better than I thought it possibly could. I’ve been weighing all the parts of this film and I honestly can’t find much in here that didn’t have me grinning and applauding for hours.

The United States of Murder INC.

by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming

From the creators of the Eisner Award-winning, best-selling POWERS comes a brand-new world of crime fiction like you’ve never seen before. In this oversized first issue, you will discover a world in which the families of organized crime never lost their stranglehold on the United States. Today is the day that Valentine Gallo becomes a made man, and it’s also the day he learns the secrets behind the organization he has served since he was old enough to walk. But it is mysterious hitwoman Jagger Rose that will forever turn his life upside down. Be there when shocking secrets of this new world spill out onto the very past page. This bold new vision of crime fiction harkens back to Bendis’ earliest work in crime comics, while also giving you everything you expect from the creators of POWERS, one of the most successful and longest-lasting independent comics in history.

This will be an extremely limited capacity event and each attendee will be checked-in at the door. Due to limited space, we can not offer +1.

avengers-post

by Tom Hairston – Midtown Comics Times Square

Okay, so a lot of you out there might be thinking “I want to start reading the Avengers, but there are so many titles out there, what’s the difference between them? Are they all really Avengers books? Do I have to read them all to know what’s happening?”

Well don’t worry, I’m here to help as I’ve written a breakdown of what each of the “Avengers” titles are currently about, what audience they are aimed at, and of course, answering whether or not it actually is about the Avengers.

Marvel Entertainment is going to conquer the world… the entertainment world, that is. Between the movies, cartoons and comics, Marvel pretty much controls a large portion of the entertainment market.

Then Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. debuted, and while the series has been unsteady, it’s another finger in another pie for Marvel.

That all changed very recently. More after the break.
