Marvel Season One: X-men and Doctor Strange

I haven’t touched a lot of the old school comics before when it comes to Marvel and DC (and those I’ve read are because of SuperMOOC). So when the opportunity came via the library system to check out the Marvel Season One books – the updated origin graphic novels retelling the origin stories of some of the better known heroes I was game.
I really picked up the titles in order of interested and was able to touch the first few pretty quickly so the reviews are in that order as opposed to some kind of chronological one.

Knuckleheads 1-3 Review

Knuckleheads_01-1-665x1024

We here at Nerdcenaries are big supporters of the magic that is Monkeybrain Comics, though it has been a wile since we did a big round up and there are a lot of titles I am behind on.

But with that said I got the opportunity to check out Brian Winkeler and Robert Wilson IV’s Knuckleheads and it is a solid comic. Part of it has its roots in the slobbish super hero genre (like Hancock or 50% of non-Big 2 superhero titles) and while it feels a little long in the tooth at times with a somewhat simple story split across three digital issues, it is full of a lot of potential and I look forward to seeing where the series is going, especially since they finished telling the story they all knew.
