Even though Brian Bendis has lest of seminal creations to others after he left for DC Comics, some writers who’ve taken up the mantle have been doing a great job carrying on the stories. Kelly Thompson has been a breath of fresh air. Even though I’m not that big on her current run of Uncanny X-Men, she’s been killing it on Westcoast Avengers and my one of my current favorites Jessica Jones. The ‘Digital Original’ has been just as good as previous volumes. The first issue of this limited series picks up right where the Bendis series left off and she doesn’t miss a beat. “Purple Daughter” does a great job of showing the characters vulnerability as well as the strain on her friends and marriage. In other books, Venom continues to be golden, dealing with the aftermath of the batter with the Symbiote God. Fantastic Four ushers in the reemergence of the classic Doctor Doom (no more Infamous Iron Man). Bendis’ Superman is fast becoming one of my favorite books. And the X-Men perish in their final battle again X-Man… cleaning the slate for Cyclops’ return and the next chapter of Marvels merry mutants.
Fortitude is an excellent 4 season drama/thriller that exists on the fringes or horror and scifi and was incredibly compelling. If there’s a comparison, it would be something of a Stephen King story, where strange things just happens to happen in this Antarctic town. It just finished off it’s 4th and final season and deserves to be binged.
