Omnibus of the Week – Uncanny X-Men by Chris Claremont Vol. 1

This one was a LONG time coming…

Doubling as the sixth part of my X-Men Readathon videos, this week I talk about the first collection of one of the greatest runs in all of comics- Claremont’s X-Men! This is only the first chunk of the run that lasted from 1975-1991, but in this volume you can see the seeds planted for what will be the most defining era of Marvel’s Merry Mutants!

Omnibus of the Week: Captain America Lives by Ed Brubaker

With Marvel finally releasing the fifth and final Omnibus to Ed Brubaker’s amazing run on Captain America I thought it was high time to make a video for the third volume of the series, Captain America Lives! Coming right off the tails of The Death of Captain America Omnibus this book follows the adventures of Bucky Barnes as he’s come to be accepted in his role as the new Captain America… but with Steve Rogers making a return it looks like his tenure with the shield could be cut short!

Thing is, I like killing people – the ones that deserve it, anyway – but I won’t kill dogs. No way. So that’s what we call a character dilemma. What – wait for the paperback? Who said that?!

NIGHT OF THE LIVING Deadpool brought you the tale of the Merc with the Mouth trapped in a zombie apocalypse. Our hero eventually found a ‘cure’ to the outbreak – any zombie that ate Deadpool transformed into another Deadpool. Happily ever after? Not so fast! Because wandering hordes of Deadpools might just be worse than flesh-hungry walking corpses! Now, the world is overrun by zillions of Deadpools AND zillions of zombies, and a girl named Liz just wants to live through the night. But did she really just find a good Deadpool among the chaotic hordes? Plus: Wait, what’s the actual danger of a planet overrun with Deadpools? Tummy sore from laughing? Overdose of awesomesauce? Or just too much of a good thing? I have no idea how this is going to end. Collecting RETURN OF THE LIVING DEADPOOL #1-4. Parental Advisory

The Omnibus Collector – Omnibus of the Week: Alias by Brian Michael Bendis

In early anticipation of the next upcoming Marvel Netflix show I’ve put together a little video that I hope will point some readers towards a book they may not have read yet… Alias by Brian Michael Bendis! The Omnibus was reprinted earlier this year, which is awesome for collectors like us that prefer these larger books, but I have a strong feeling that by the time the series hits Netflix we may see the book return out of print! Uh oh! So I’ve put this video out early in hopes to usher people towards grabbing this excellent book!

The Omnibus Collector – Omnibus of the Week: Daredevil by Frank Miller

By this point I’m sure everyone’s watched Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil series, and if you’re like most people out there you probably found yourself wanting to read some good Daredevil comics. Look no further than right here for my official recommendation with my overview and review of the Daredevil by Frank Miller Omnibus! Even if you’re a fan who has read this run multiple times before, if you haven’t gotten the Omnibus then I totally recommend it, and you can watch this video to see just why I so strongly recommend fans to grab this beautiful volume!

As Chondra starts to investigate, she stumbles upon a bizarre cult that worships celebrities as eternal effigies. And these cult members aren’t just worshiping—they’re also ritually sacrificing anyone who defies their veneration of the beautiful and famous. Chondra’s probe takes her on a terrifying tour of burial mounds across the world, from Stonehenge to the Nazca Lines of Peru. But what is the link between the cult, Chondra’s hometown, and her own bloodline? Will Chondra become the hero detective she played as a child…or is she in fact the cult’s unwitting messiah?
Written by rising star Tim Seeley (BATMAN ETERNAL, GRAYSON, Revival) and illustrated by Marley Zarcone (Black Circle, MADAME XANADU), EFFIGY is a twisted murder mystery and conspiracy tale that examines celebrity, godhood, and the price of fame.

A microscopic planet so small it can float in a person’s veins. A Doomsday-infected Superman. A time-traveling chaos demon. The onslaught of threats is putting the pressure on the world’s finest. But when a rescue mission goes wrong, both heroes awake as blank slates, all memory erased.
Now Gotham City is faced with a Superman without his moral compass and a Batman without his vendetta. Without the two super heroes to rely on, who remains to remind them who they truly are?
In BATMAN/SUPERMAN: SECOND CHANCE, acclaimed writer Greg Pak (ACTION COMICS) and a bevy of comics’ best artists including Jae Lee, Karl Kerschl, Marc Deering and Diogenes Neves set Batman and Superman on a collision course…but will either hero emerge unscathed? Collects issues #10-15.

The Omnibus Collector’s X-Men Readathon Episode 4: Neal Adams!

Well X-Fans! I’ve finally finished the second X-Men Omnibus, effectively taking me to the point that the series went on hiatus. I actually finished about a week ago but got a bit busy so here’s the video now… Lots of amazing artwork to talk about in these issues, and some of the best stories of the X-Men yet. I have to say it’s all thanks to artists like Jim Steranko and Neal Adams, who deliver the most attractive work on the series to date. Check me out on Instagram at ryleym0 to see images of all the comics I’ve been reading during this readathon so you can see all the awesome art I’ve been talking to. Thanks again for watching! Make sure to like, comment, subscribe, and all that cool stuff!
