Enter the Age of X-Man. An New Take on Age of Apocalypse?

The Age of X-Man dawns…and the X-Men cannot stop it. After the apocalyptic dissolution of the X-Men comes…AGE OF X-MAN! At first glance, this looks like a flip of Age of Apocalypse which saw a future where Apocalypse had won and out of it came the character Nate Grey, X-Man. Is this the flip where Nate Grey rules?

Starting this February, something big for the X-Men!

With a simple act of violence, Shatterstar’s life was turned upside down. Nothing makes sense anymore…except for a pair of double-bladed swords and more bloodshed. So much more BLOODSHED.

Superman scoured the Multiverse for heroes who might threaten his rule-but he dismissed Prince Adam. Will he rue that decision now that he’s facing He-Man in the Oracle? Plus, Darkseid’s attack on Eternia has reached the walls of Castle Grayskull!

Horror! Death! Uh…Face-punching! Witness ten all-new stories that promise to be the most terrifying, most shocking and most horrific comic that DC Comics has ever published! (Hyperbole much?) Batman, Wonder Woman, Guy Gardner, Swamp Thing, Zatanna and more of your favorite heroes face unspeakable horrors from the streets of Gotham City to the darkest sectors of the universe.

Review: Shatterstar #1

A gladiator, a warrior, a hero…the man called Shatterstar has been many things, but one thing he’s always been is deadly. He’s not a man you want to cross or you’ll learn that fact all too well. Walk back into the darkness with Shatterstar.

Shatterstar was never really a character I cared for. He always felt like too much of a mash-up of everything else going on in the 90s. Over the years, the character has gotten more interesting and a bit more of a personality to stand out. Now, in his own limited series, writer Tim Seeley is delivering a character and a situation I want to learn more about.

Shatterstar has been many things and now he’s a landlord. Yes, he’s decided to settle and owns a building that he rents out to other beings stuck from other dimensions and timelines. The concept is so brilliant, it’s something I want to see be a series on its own. Don’t give me villains, give me the dysfunction of this building. But, we have to have villains and they eventually come.

Seeley does an excellent job in this first issue doing two primary things. First, he delivers an intro to Shatterstar for new readers and adding a little something for long time fans. This is a character we can care about more as he’s now just a guy trying to live his life. We can relate to him a bit more. The second is setting up the rather interesting characters of his building. Stakes are now built in for us to care about even more so. The comic devolves a bit into what I disliked in the 90s, but there’s more than enough interesting things and humor to make this a first issue that has me wanting to come back for more.

The art by Carlos Villa and Gerardo Sandoval is solid. One handles the present and the other the past. It’s two distinct styles that stand out from each other. They’re joined by Juan Vlasco on inks, Carlos Lopez on colors, and lettering by VC’s Cory Petit. The two styles really work to differentiate the time and in a way enhance the mood of each setting. Having either style be it for the comic wouldn’t work at all as each has their own goal of delivering humor or action. The fact that the colors and inks work for both, the same creators, is very cool and helps make the art feel a bit more consistent that way.

The first issue is a solid one that delivers a lot of humor. There were times I had a smile on my face and it gets me to want to check out the second issue. I worry that we’re going to get more action than humor going forward but Seeley delivers a start that has me wanted an ongoing series from the cast of characters we get to know all too briefly.
