Review: Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War #1

Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War #1

I’ve played Fortnite for exactly one session. For an afternoon, I sat down attempting to figure out how to play the game and found the experience to be the classic Halo matches except amped up to 11 as if everyone was on energy drinks. The experience wasn’t positive and I haven’t tried again. So, going into Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War #1 my knowledge of the property was minimal. I know it’s a video game and it often has crossovers with other properties. The story, the characters, that’s all new to me. And generally, I still have no idea what’s going on.

Written by Christos Gage and Donald Mustard, Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War #1 has Spider-Man recruiting heroes to take on some bad guys who seem to control reality. It’s all a little weird and doesn’t feel like it totally jives with the Marvel comic universe but whatever, it’s a threat and gives a reason to fight. Spider-Man gives the rundown to Wolverine as he attempts to recruit him for a mission and it sort of makes sense.

Where the comic gets bumpy is there are a lot of references to Fortnite chapters as if someone coming to the comic not from the game would understand any of it or even know where to go to reference these things. It’s not like a comic where there’s an issue you can find, we’re talking events from a video game storyline. It’s familiar and not at the same time. The story Spider-Man weaves is just utterly confusing, something the comic itself acknowledges, which is at least something.

Sergio Dávila provides the art with ink by Sean Parsons, color by Edgar Delgado, and lettering by Joe Caramagna. The comic looks good but there’s an excitement aspect that’s not there. When it comes to comics and Fortnite, my previous experience was the DC crossover. There was a kinetic aspect to it that delivered a lot of excitement. That’s not here. The art feels rather flat in that way. For a story that features characters bouncing all over, the visuals play out very static and boring.

Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War #1 isn’t bad, it sets things up for what’s to come. It does its best at explaining what’s going on. Fortnite fans may understand that a bit more but those new might feel a bit lost. While it’s not bad, the comic might be one for Fortnite fans more than just Marvel.

Review: Elektra: Black, White, and Blood #1 (of 4)

Elektra: Black, White, and Blood #1 (of 4)

When it comes to the Marvel Universe, there are very few characters as polarizing as Elektra. She started off as a love interest for Daredevil, but proved throughout the years to be a formidable hero and villain. She has proven to be Matt Murdock’s most enduring rogue, sometime being an ally, other times being his foe, as in the time she became Black Sky. Her onscreen representation may have given audiences a different view.

As her representation in the movies was less than astounding, as Jennifer Garner, though a brilliant actress , she could only do so much with her appearance in the Daredevil movie and her spinoff. In the Daredevil series, Elodie Yung, gave fans what we always wanted , Matt’s antagonistic foil, who could meet him intellectually and then some.  It is fair to say, her journey within comic books has been better written than it has been onscreen. In a celebration of the character, Marvel has rounded up some of the best scribes who have ever written her. Elektra: Black, White, Blood #1 kicks things off with a trio of stories showing her at her best.

In ”Red Dawn”,  Elektra loses a a battle to a band of vampires but not before taking down some , as she relishes her last few hours, saying goodbye , only face the sunlight for the last time. In “Not The Devil”, Elektra has a hard time taking out a Yakuza target, as past trauma stops her from finishing a job, one that she happily walks away from. In “The Crimson Path”, we are taken to a mystical realm, where she must fight off a hoard to save a young girl, but as we soon find out it is an allegory for salvation that well crave. By the issue’s end, we get different looks at the same character showing off how multifaceted she can be.

Overall, Elektra: Black, White, and Blood #1 is a great first issue that is both deep and action packed. The stories by the different writers are incredible. The art the different artists  is stunning. Altogether, a set of stories that shows the versatility of the Assassin in Red.

Review: The Amazing Spider-Man #75

Amazing Spider-Man #75

I’ve never been a Spider-Man superfan. While I’ve enjoyed some stories and arcs, it’s a character (and various series) that I dip in and out of. Beyond Slott’s run, I can’t think of any long run I’ve read. He’s a character I enjoy in doses and generally feel things get redone to a point that it just doesn’t quite interest me (swing with cool image, fight bad guy, smart comment, something goes wrong, repeat). But, when a major start of a run begins, I do like to check them out and see what’s going on. Amazing Spider-Man #75 kicks off a new era for the webcrawler and it’s a start that will have me sticking around for a while.

While Amazing Spider-Man #75 is written by Zeb Wells, Spider-Man is currently being handled by the “Beyond Board” of Kelly Thompson, Cody Ziglar, Saladin Ahmed, Patrick Gleason, and Wells. The group, along with artists, will rotate arcs and issues which is needed as the comic is upping how often it’s coming out. What is “Beyond” though? That gets answered in this issue as Ben Reilly is back in the picture and donning a Spider-Man costume. He now has sponsorship by a corporation called Beyond that feels like it can do the superhero thing a bit better than it’s been done. They also have the “rights” to Spider-Man. It’s all a very intriguing twist to the series and a bit brilliant in some ways.

Amazing Spider-Man #75 dips into Spider-Man history. There’s obviously Reilly himself but the issue takes a lot from Slott’s run when Dock Ock was in Peter’s body. It’s a solid use of that arc and makes a lot of sense when presented. It’s a great way to use continuity and add some more to the history. “Additive” is a direction Marvel has been going for a while and it plays out well here. It dips back into Peter having run a company, there’s some ramifications of that which is great as that entire chapter feels like it was dumped rather quickly. There’s also some questions as to what Peter should do. He has had a lot of heavy hits lately and you can see he’s worn out. Should he let Reilly take over? Should he just go on a vacation for a bit? There’s a lot of options here now and it all feels natural. Amazing Spider-Man #75 deals with Peter’s trauma while also setting up an “out” and we the readers have to guess where it’s going to go… or do we?

The issue ends with a punch that’s been teased but what exactly is that punch? Based on some dialogue, this doesn’t feel like the usual beaten hero story we’ve seen so many times and potentially we’re going to get something very new and interesting, and hopefully relevant (if what I think is going to happen is really going to happen).

The art by Patrick Gleason is top notch. With color by Marcio Menyz and lettering by Joe Caramagna, the comic has style and pops on the page. There’s a modern classic feel to it with body bending swinging but doesn’t take that over the top like others. It’s a bit more grounded in some ways but nails the over the top action as well. What the team really delivers on is the weariness of Peter. You can feel his tiredness. This is a person who’s emotionally beat down and it shows. That sort of small detail really stands out and is impressive.

But there’s more!

Kelly Thompson, Travel Foreman, Jim Campbell, and Joe Caramagna give us a back-up story that adds a twist to everything we just read up to that point. Colleen Wing and Misty Knight!? What are they doing in the comic!? The two are kicking ass is the answer but “Love and Monsters” adds a lot to the direction the series is going as it presents a wrinkle in everything we’ve read.

And there’s more!?

“Kafka” by Wells, Ivan Fiorelli, Edgar Delgado, and Caramagna adds even more to the new direction of the series. We learn a bit more about Beyond delivering an even greater ominous feel about it all. It’s solid work that also examines Electro and some of what his powers mean. Like the main story, it’s the details and hints that are great and will suck you in.

This is a hell of a debut that feels like it’s a natural direction building off of the last two major runs and setting Peter and Spider-Man up for a new direction. It’s good, really good. And it has this on-the-fence Spider-Man reader coming back for more… and excited about it.
