OK again, so sorry for the lag of time in between posts. School started on March 30 for me and it has been a crazy whirlwind since. It probably didn’t help that I went camping shortly after in Santa Barbara and that I have used my time away from studying and school and work to pursue story ideas for the newspaper. Is it any wonder that I haven’t had much time to post?
Actually I am still terribly behind on my comic book reading and I just barely read the first two installments of War of Kings, which by the way is terrific. This barely makes it as a retro-review because the book has only been out a week or so, and already it’s sold out necessitating reprints and variant covers. One would expect Marvel to try and cash-in quickly with reprints when they have a good concept on their hands.
I have always been a sucker for the Inhumans so this storyline featuring the cosmic drama involving the Kree and the Inhumans has me clamoring for more. The story revolves around the war between the Shiar led by Vulcan and the Kree. Throw in the Starjammers and former X-Men Havok and Lorna Dane (Polaris) and a whole slew of other cosmic characters and you have a great new series. Personally, I think this is some really good storytelling by writers Abnett and Lanning as they manage to juggle multiple plot threads started in Secret Invasion, Silent War and other recent Marvel crossover events with ease. The artwork by various artists is also pretty good. Can’t wait to read the next installment
