Welcome back to Chuck’n Comics where the geek is chic…always. Today I’d like to jump in the TARDIS and ride all timey-whimey back a few years to the release of Brian K. Vaughn’s Y: The Last Man Vol. 1. Y, the first volume in the graphic novels, begins the story of what if all the men on earth died. What was once a lewd sexual fantasy shared by many adolescent boys is brought to the harsh light of reality in an amazing story that grabs you from the first page.
Taken from Vertigo’s website: “Written by Brian K. Vaughan (Lost, PRIDE OF BAGHDAD, EX MACHINA) and with art by Pia Guerra, this is the saga of Yorick Brown—the only human survivor of a planet-wide plague that instantly kills every mammal possessing a Y chromosome. Accompanied by a mysterious government agent, a brilliant young geneticist and his pet monkey, Ampersand, Yorick travels the world in search of his lost love and the answer to why he’s the last man on earth.” Continue reading

Welcome back! This week on Chuck’n Comics we are looking at AvsX #1…of the limited series. An exciting opportunity turned disappointment when I realized the book I was reading was not the first book in the series but more a complimentary series for the story arc.
For those of you not in the know, what AvsX represents is the ultimate fight between Earth’s mightiest heroes and the X-Men when it comes down to the return of the Phoenix either meaning the rebirth of the mutant species or the end of Earth as the Avengers know it. The X-Men want it and the Avengers must protect the planet thus…Avengers vs. X-men!
So understanding this, I must say this was a series I was extremely excited to dive into. It has been a while since I have been excited about a Marvel event so, needless to say, I was eager. I, unfortunately, should have looked before I leaped because I ended up in the right story but wrong set of books so my experience with the books, thus far, is confusing but I am going to shoot a review of it anyway.

It read, “Hmm Hmmmmm HMMMMMM tiny.cc/wnba9.” That magical link takes you to a blog by comic book writer (and all around cool guy) Marc Bernardin called, “Could Netflix Bring Firefly Back From the Dead?”
Oh my dear and fluffy lord, would that it were true! (And yes, that is from “Serenity,” the film that is essentially the second season of “Firefly.”) Bernardin suggests in his article that Netflix, which has resurrected “Arrested Development” and plans to make more episodes, might be able to do the same for “Firefly.”
