2016comics

2016 has been a great year here at Midtown Comics. Not only was it full of exciting events – like an all-star Batman Day signing and a poster signing with the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse (watch the video below) – but it was also overflowing with legitimately great comics. Marvel unleashed some giant changes to classic characters and its universe; the DC Universe focused on revitalizing its iconic characters with DC Rebirth; Image, Valiant, and many other publishers continued to generate terrific titles. Let’s see why some of the Midtown Comics staff had an unforgettable time reading comics this year.

Wade Wilson, a.k.a. Deadpool, and Laura Kinney/X-23, a.k.a. Wolverine, may both have accelerated healing factors and enjoy using pointy weapons in a fight, but they’re drastically different people. The Merc with a Mouth loves to babble and use his impressive agility to throw off his opponents, but X-23 tends to apply a very no-nonsense approach – and now it’s done in a non-lethal way. Will Wade annoy the new Wolverine and take her down, or will X-23 defeat the motormouth merc?  With Civil War II currently tearing apart the Marvel Universe, we thought it would be fun to imagine these two at odds in the big event! So, who will you side with?

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.
