The following is a video from my YouTube channel, Jack’s World. This is video a fresh entry in my ongoing “Jack’s Comic Gems” collection. And this gem highlights a modern retelling of Marvel’s First Family. Back in the mid-2010s, Marvel launched a series of graphic novels that retold the classic origins of iconic characters in a more contemporary setting.
Naturally, the Fantastic Four were one of the first titles to come out and they set an incredibly high bar. Most already know the story of the Fantastic Four, but Season One re-told that story in a way that made it a true gem. Enjoy!
The end of winter is in sight, people. I suspect that, after the terrible storms that swept over the country last week, everyone is ready for this winter to be over. That, or you’re just ready to jump on the nearest flight to a tropical climate. As someone who has been chipping ice off his car almost every other day, I completely understand that sentiment.
It’s not quite over yet, but we’re getting close. I encourage everyone to hang in there and hold out just a little bit longer. It may mean having to dress in layers for a few more weeks, but we’re past the halfway point for the most part. We just have to take things week-by-week. That’s where New Comic Book Day comes in.
When you build every week around when new comics come out, you come to appreciate taking things week-by-week in general. No matter the season or the weather, New Comic Book Day is like an anchor that helps keep things in perspective as time progresses. That’s especially helpful during times like this.
The weather sucks. There are no major holidays to look forward to. We’re still in the midst of a terrible pandemic. Time tends to drag during periods like this. Having something to look forward to every week, like new comics, helps keep your spirit from getting too broken. At a time like this, we all need that.
This week has plenty to offer for those trying to distract themselves from the weather and the news. Once again, here my pull list and pick of the week. Enjoy!
