Drawn Dispatches – 10/21

Dear G. Willow Wilson, Adrian Alphona, Ian Herring, Sana Amanat, and Alan Fine. Thank you. While I really want to yell at you for making a grown man cry… Thank you. Ms Marvel‘s final comic (pre Secret Wars) was everything the last panel of the last issue promised; sweet, funny, emotional, powerful, and more than anything else, human. There are no battles in this comic, just a lot of Kamala Khan proving how much she’s grown up, and how much growing up she still has to do. Ms Marvel’s success in the Marvel multiverse has been great to see, and I’m now looking forward to her next adventures.

A-Force (2015-) 005-000

The A-Force’s run in the Secret Wars comes to a close as they face off against an army of zombies. Ms Marvel, Spider Gwen, Monica Rambeau, Mockingbird, Black Widow, and even Elektra get in on the action. It’s a veritable who’s who of all the women in the Marvel universe! When everything seems lost for Nico Minoru, Singularity swoops in to save the day. It’s a great comic, and the whole series is worth a read, especially as A-Force will return.

Marvel-Zombies-004-(2015)-(Digital)-(Mephisto-Empire)-001

Marvel Zombies finishes its Battleworld tale with Elsa Bloodstone going up against a zombie version of her father, while under attack from a bunch of other zombies, and trying to protect her companion, while also trying to deal with the fact that her father is trying to kill her, and has killed many different versions of her. Elsa really needs a cup of tea. What she gets instead, however, is her father biting off her hand and infecting her. He’s really not a nice guy. Of course, the kid, who isn’t who she appears to be, saves the day. How? Well you’ll just have to read to find out!

I was going to cover the Green Lantern / Star Trek crossover this week, but there’s only one issue of that left so I’ll wait until that drops before talking about it. If you haven’t been following it, go read it!

There were many other comics released this week, and a few hints as to the ending of the Secret Wars. Let me know if you have any theories in the comments. I’ll save my own theories for a special post in a couple of weeks.

The Final Trailer For Star Wars The Force Awakens Has Been Released

That’s right folks the final trailer for Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens has been released and I’m going to say it, I’m crying. I am literally experiencing full blown tears of joys. You can see the trailer for yourself and see if it’ll bring you to tears. Enjoy!

I don’t believe I’ve said this before here on the site (and it also tends to annoy my boss, but screw him IT’S STAR WARS!!!) but the only words I have to say about what I just saw is HOLY MOTHER OF CRAP!!!!!! Seriously! Seriously dude! Ho-lee Crap! I am completely dumbfounded! A man once said “In J.J. We Trust”, and that man was my favorite Star Wars youtuber called HelloGreedo and the video where he said said quote can be found here and part two of that video can be found here. The words “In J.J. We Trust” were created by HelloGreedo to show that Star Wars fans had faith in Mr. Abrams while he worked on Star Wars: The Force Awakens which is slated to be released on December 18th of this year. They were and are willing to go into that theater with an optimistic view of the film and from what we have seen from this newest trailer shows us that that faith has not been misplaced. Mr. J.J. Abrams, I do trust you and I look forward to seeing The Force Awakens on the very day it’s released. Not only do I have faith in J.J. Abrams, I now have faith in the entire future on the Star Wars universe.

At this point I think it’s fairly obvious that all my lovely readers will be at their local theater on day 1, and we here at Geeks of the Round sincerely hope you enjoy it. As for the trailer, what did you think of it? Did you love it? Hate it? Don’t care? Let us know in the comments, we love to hear your thoughts about topics we cover here at the site, so we definitely want to know what you think about the final Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens trailer. So on that note I bring this article to close and I want to thank you for reading it and I’ll see you at the next one, bye bye.

Get Ready For The First Expansion For Elite: Dangerous

That’s right folks, I’m back with yet another article for your reading pleasure. This time I’ll be giving my thoughts on the trailer and info we currently have on the upcoming expansion Horizons for the popular online space simulator Elite: Dangerous created by Frontier Developments. Now keep in mind that I have not played Elite: Dangerous due to the game’s controls for mouse and keyboard are extremely confusing to me and so I’ve been waiting until I could get my hands on a HOTAS (Hand on Throttle and Stick). Despite not playing the game, I still have an extremely high interest in the future of Elite: Dangerous and that’s not going to stop me from talking about it. So before I get into the meat of my thoughts I’ll show you the first teaser for Elite: Dangerous – Horizons, enjoy.

Yeah, I know that isn’t much to go on especially since it is a “teaser”, but you have to admit that what we’ll get with Horizons could be huge and it gives me great hope for the future of Elite: Dangerous.

Now at the current moment we don’t have a whole lot of information. The information we do have (at least the information I could find) is that we will not have the ability to explore every type of planet, only rocky and uninhabited planets. I also believe it is limited to planets that have a minimal to no atmosphere. Personally I’m fine with that, I can definitely see that Frontier Developments is taking baby steps and I think they should. Elite: Dangerous may be available right now but Frontier Developments still shouldn’t rush its continued development. Regardless, I’m very pleased with the direction of Elite: Dangerous and I am definitely looking forward to what comes after the Horizons expansion.

So now that’s you’ve seen the teaser for Horizons, what do you think? Do you have any theories as to what will come next? Have you been playing Elite: Dangerous? Let us know in the comments. And be sure to check out our YouTube channel and take a gander at our various discussion vidcasts. Thanks for reading and I’ll see you at the next article, bye bye.

Drawn Dispatches – 10/13

If you’re looking for the latest from the Secret Wars, this is the place. The Secret Wars aren’t over, but some of the post Secret Wars comics have been released, so now, every week, Drawn Dispatches will bring you the best from the comic book world, and not focused solely on one event or even one comic book company.

This week, we’re going to start with the Secret Wars, and issue six of the main story. Doom has Corvus Glaive and Proxima Midnight of the Cabal captured. Mr. Fantastic and The Maker are working together to find a way to defeat Doom, and trying to determine what will happen if he’s defeated. Meanwhile Valeria, searching for Doom’s power source, runs into both Spideys as they search for the same thing – Molecule Man. No spoilers, but there’s an eight year old burger, a prophet, and Doom’s version of the Fantastic Four‘s origin involved. A must read!

Telos-001-(2015)-(Digital-Empire)-003

Over in the DC world of the Darkseid War, Telos from the Convergence series gets his own comic. Telos starts this comic where we left him in Convergence; hunting for Brainiac in an effort to find his family. He finds Brainiac and there is a suitably epic battle. When he wins, Brainiac offers him a deal. The thing is, Brainiac had a deal with someone else, and maybe he just let Telos win… This is one that will be worth following.

Amazing Spider-Man (2015-) 001-000

Amazing Spider-Man issue 1 hit with a huge issue packed with hilarity, and a bunch of prequels for a whole new raft of Spiderverse themed comics. Parker Industries, and our favourite web-head, have gone worldwide, starting in Singapore with a car chase, Mockingbird, auto-tune, and more epic one-liners that should be allowed in one comic! The most interesting part of this issue is in the prequels, however: Spider-Man 2099, Silk, Web Warriors, a pregnant Spider-Woman, and that Miles Morales will be joining Peter Parker in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man. That last bit worries me a little. I think a shared comic is a bad idea – Miles Morales is a great character, and I think that the writers would have more freedom if he had his own title. He might still get one, though, but I haven’t heard anything about that…

What’s exciting you about comics this week? Let me know in the comments!
