Just So You Know, Marvel Rules at Recap Pages Sometimes

April 2nd, 2009 by | Tags: , ,

I mean, there’s Incredible Hercules and Agents of Atlas and all, but I hold a place in my heart for this recap page for Dr. Doom and the Masters of Evil #3.


It really is a fun miniseries and it’s kind of a bummer that it’s only four issues rather than six. Also fun? Marvel Assistant-Sized Spectacular #1. Not only do we get a story about D-Man as the Captain America of the Iraq War and Jason Aaron writing American Eagle, but a lengthy Mini-Marvels story starring Hawkeye. I love those.

  1. Oh, thank you for that. I laughed out loud repeatedly, hearing Isaac Hayes in my head, trying to stifle myself as my girlfriend watches YouTube clips about the dire state of the U.S. economy. (I love her anyway.) I must buy this. It’s 10:35 pm, and if I knew of an open comic shop, I’d go buy this right now.

    I’ve had a LOT of wine tonight. But I am pretty sure that isn’t relevant.

  2. Maybe my favorite moment in this week’s comics, and one of my favorite series these days, mini or otherwise. It’s this year’s MODOK’s 11.

    Another favorite set of Marvel recap pages are the ones for the Dr. Strange: the Oath, which actually found their way into the story itself.

  3. I love the Dr. Doom and the Masters of Evil book. So good. I was a bit disapointed by the Assitant-Sized Spectacular book. I mean it wasn’t even close to being BAD it just wasn’t great…

  4. Yeah, but which story did Wyatt Cenac write?

  5. The recaps from Deadpool and Cable were always entertaining, wether it was Deadpool’s late-night talk show or him storming through the Marvel offices trying to find who was responsible for Civil War continuity.

  6. I loved the Cable & Deadpool recaps as well – particularly in the last arc, where it took the form of Bob, Agent of HYDRA’s blog.

  7. Damn I gotta pick me up this book. I loves me some Baron Zemo!

  8. I’m glad to see how much silly fun they’re having with this stuff, kind of puts a lie to the “gormless nerds who think superheroes are Shakespeare” nonsense.
