Welcome to another episode of Wildstorm Addiction! Joe David Soliz and Ben Murphy bring you Wildstorm reviews and news for the weeks of December 8th and 15th 2010. Reviews including Welcome to Tranquility: One Foot in the Grave #6, Ides of Blood #5 (of 6), and Gen 13 #39!
00:00:35 – Ben welcomes everyone to Episode #21 for the weeks of December 8th and 15th 2010.
00:00:45 – Spoiler alerts warning, but all the written Wildstorm reviews at the site are spoiler free unless otherwise noted. Ben calls out Joe for not giving us ratings on the written reviews he does for the site on the last books of each of the Wildstorm Universe series titles.
00:01:35 – Joe gives a shout out to one of Wildstorm’s most talented recent alumns in Rebekah Isaacs. Both he and I picked up her first issue of Magus #1 from 12 Gauge Comics. We both dug this first issue read which has the premise of “Where were you when the magic came back?” But we were sold on it with Rebekah’s art.
00:02:17 – Joe reviews Welcome to Tranquility: One Foot in the Grave #6 Written by Gail Simone, art by Horacio Domingues and cover by Neil Googe.
00:10:49 – Ben loved Gail’s second run with Welcome to Tranquility. It’s great that we were able to get to see this interesting twist on a superhero city one more time before the Wildstorm imprint/universe ended.
00:12:13 – Ben gripes about how the Batman preview is located at the final page of each Wildstorm title ending this month and it is kind of confusing. The 18 years of Wildstorm fan thank you page is awesome and we appreciate it! This page would have fit much better next to the last page of the story in his opinion.
00:13:30 – Joe has some more unanswered questions about the ending of Tranquility.
00:15:06 – Ben reviews Ides of Blood #5 (of 6) written by Stuart C. Paul, art by Christian Duce and cover by Michael Geiger.
00:30:37 – Joe can’t believe that sales of Ides of Blood are so low because this book rocks! Go freaking pick it up people because it may never get traded!!!
00:36:24 – Joe reviews the final issue of Gen 13 #39 written by Phil Hester, art by Cruddie Toran, and an epic cover by Dustin Nguyen. Joe starts off by reminiscing a little bit about the first issue of the original Gen 13 mini series in 1994.
00:44:18 – Ben wraps up his feelings regarding the final issue of the Gen crew.
