With Civil War II (nearly) over, it’s time for every other event to start setting itself up. We had the Death of X X-Men story start last week, which I reviewed, that will lead into the next big event Inhumans Vs X-Men. With Dead No More, we see the return of Miles Warren aka The Jackel, who absolutely loves making clones of Spider-Man, his villains, and his closest friends. I’ll avoid spoilers for the most part, this is a longer issue with 2 stories inside coming in at 30 or so pages but I’ll only review the first story since the second story is a spoiler of the end of the first.

Every Wednesday I’m on the lookout for new #1’s and new series to pick up and find that next great book. This week I picked up Eclipse #1, which I believe to be the first book by Zack Kaplan to be published by one of the major publishers, Image/Top Cow. This book takes an interesting setting and puts it alongside a classic murder plot with some fantastic art and writing. As always be avoiding spoilers but we may have to go over some of the plot points and visual notes to give you a good idea of what’s happening in this book.
Here we are, halfway through Civil War II, wading through all the different tie-in issues and short series including Spider-Man, X-Men, and our favourite red, white and blue newly made fascist, Captain America. Just as the title says, Steve Rogers is still a secret hydra agent and in this tie-in we get some good, but sort of obvious, idea of what he is planning. I’ve seen a few posts on CBR and other websites straight up spoiling the end of the book, I won’t be doing that here.
How did we get so lucky, no longer do you need to dream about a crossover so fantastic and perfect, it’s here and boy is it a great start. We’ve seen Aliens vs Predator, we’ve seen Predator vs Judge Dredd, we’ve seen Judge Dredd vs Aliens, now is the time to see them all come together and fight it out. As this book has only been out for a week or two as of writing this, I’ll try to avoid major plot spoilers but realistically it’s pretty obvious what the plot of this is going to be about; everybody fighting.
It’s here, after a month of waiting, Weird Detective Issue #2 is out and oh boy is it a treat. In this 2nd issue, we learn a little more about what exactly Detective Sebastian Greene is able, and willing, to do. Although this book is about half the length of the 1st issue, it moves the story forward at an excellent pace and does not disappoint. I may need to talk about some of the events that happened in the previous issue or some other spoiler-y bits, but as always I’ll avoid as much as possible.
