It’s the curtain call. Tonight, the people were so fine. They waited there in line. And when they got up on their feet, they made the show. And that was sweet. But I can hear the sound. Of slamming doors and folding chairs. And that’s a sound they’ll never know – oh, sorry those are the lyrics to Jackson Browne’s The Load Out. Whoops. 

This is it. The final act. The last punchline. Fame has torn the Brice family apart. Can their love bring them back together?

Heroes Reborn is… Reborn

Whatever happened to Earth’s mightiest heroes? Marvel will return to the world of “Heroes Reborn” in 2021.

Heroes Reborn relaunched the Marvel Universe after its heroes were wiped out by Onslaught. The story arc launched in 1996 and such creators as Jim Lee and Rob Liefeld (who at that time left for Image) return to the publisher.

The storyline was continued in 1997’s Heroes Reborn: The Return that had the reborn characters return to the original Marvel Universe.

Since then it’s been revisited a few times not just in collecteds but other series.

The teasers feature Coulson, the Hulk, Juggernaut, Logan, Peter Parker, Reed Richards and Benn Grimm, Thanos, and Wanda.

With more to come in 2021, Marvel has released teasers featuring artwork by Carlos Pacheco, inks by Rafael Fontirez and Mariano Taibo (Taibo on Coulson and Peter Parker), and color by Matt Milla.

Review: Scout’s Honor #1

Scout's Honor #1

Post-apocalyptic stories featuring a society attempting to rebuild itself after an event have been a pretty popular genre lately. Most have been interesting but haven’t quite delivered enough new to it. Scout’s Honor #1 is the latest entry but gives a spin on the concept with some new, and rather interesting, concepts.

Years after a nuclear apocalypse, a new society has arisen based around the manual from the Ranger Scouts, a Boy Scouts-like organization. While you could go into the comic thinking it’s a fairly straightforward story involving one group fighting another, with writer David Pepose, you know you’re getting something more.

Scout’s Honor #1 presents a story that can be approached in many ways. There’s of course the simple groups clashing potential but the issue really sets up a story about faith, beliefs, and what happens when they’re shaken. This is the story about when the truth about the foundation of a society is challenged and revealed to be built on lies.

But, that by itself could be interesting but Pepose goes for a trifecta of interesting concepts. In the main character Kit, there’s also a challenge of the society itself. Kit is a young women who has disguised herself as a man so she can become a Scout. It’s a challenge of the society from another angle providing an even more intriguing series.

Luca Casalanguida‘s art along with Matt Milla‘s color, and Carlos M. Mangual‘s lettering are top notch. There’s some great details to the comic. We’re given a post-apocalyptic world but it’s not quite the broken down wasteland. There’s been some movement in rebuilding the world but Milla’s colors and Casalanguida’s design remind us of what was. The coloring delivers an eerie look, an aura of the destruction that has lead to this.

Scout’s Honor #1 is a fantastic start to the miniseries. It approaches a familiar concept but does so in different than expected ways. There’s many directions and issues that the series seems it’ll be tackling delivering much more than just another clash in a post-apocalyptic world. We’re getting a series that’ll challenge and discuss where you go when you find out your world is a lie. It’s a timely comic that we might be able to reflect on our own reality from.
