Logo de MarvelEn el mes de Abril, La Casa de las Ideas pasa el ecuador de su enésimo evento ultroniano y nos deja caer alguna que otra serie para llenar el hueco con otras nuevas…

Como nuevas tenemos a Thanos, éste nos va ganando posiciones a poquetes como villano cansino recurrente y lo tenemos de prota de su propia serie relatando sus años mozos. Y por otra parte tenemos una serie que nos llaman X-men, aunque casualmente todo lo que aparece tanto en la sipnosis como en el par de portadas mostradas son quiwomen en lugar de quismenes… Le daremos un voto de confianza a Brian Wood.

Y cargarse…, mandan al garete el X-treme X-men y Age of Apocalypse. Cosa que comprendo perfectamente y no me explico cómo es que han durado tanto…

En cuanto a los entomamientos… enésima edicion de Kick Ass, ésta vez tapadurizada y oversizada, el Secret Service, sólo tapadurizado, y un Omnibus lobeznoriense conforman el trío de tometes de Mark Millar del mes. Luego tenemos la recopilación del Twelve de extrawhisky en un solo tochete de tapa dura, la recuperación del maravilloso Hulk de Bill Mantlo en tepebeses que nadie debería dejar pasar. Y es que una de mis batallar perdidas contra mis amigachos siempre ha sido colocar a Mantlo por encima de Peter David en lo que al Coloso Esmeralda se refiere…

¿El resto?, pues lo de siempre, que si un premiere por aquí, que si un tepebé por allá y así vamos recopilando todas las series. Y de paso algún que otro Essential o Masterwork para rellenar etepas viejunas.

El listadico enterico a un saltico de regloncico:

you ever really wanted to be a super hero? No, I mean really wanted to?
Dave Lizewski has — and he’s not willing to let it stop with simple
daydreams. Designing a suit for himself and taking the name “Kick-Ass,”
Dave decides to make his dreary existence more exciting — and maybe even
help some people in the process. But with no special powers and
outmatched by New York City’s most hardened criminals, Kick-Ass might be
in for a little more than he bargained for. With his super-hero secret
identity gaining fans due to a popular viral video, and other masked
vigilantes such as Hit-Girl and Big Daddy making their presence felt in
the city, Dave knows that his extracurricular activity is dangerous,
maybe even stupid — but he’s got the itch, and it ain’t going away.

live at Xavier’s School for Gifted Students, which is like home base for
the mutants of the world. You’ve probably seen mutants on TV, and you
probably wish you could go to school with a bunch of people who have
awesome powers. Because you probably think you’d get to hang out with
the X-Men and fight evil mutants and do stuff like that. But guess what?
You’d be wrong! Instead, I go to school and I play on my computer and
I’m alone a lot because, like I said before, I have a lame mutant power.
So anyway, this book is sort of about my life as a mutant, and it’s
about my worst day ever. And Wolverine’s worst day ever, too.
