Comic Review: Dark Nights: Metal #1

 

metal-1-cover-e1498475012313Dark Nights: Metal #1 (DC Comics)

More so than many big comic book events, there’s a lot of hype surrounding Dark Nights: Metal. Of course, any book that reunites the Batman New 52 dream team of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo is bound to gain some attention, but the hype surrounding Metal is definitely more palpable than other events in the works (looking at you, Marvel Legacy). Perhaps it’s the fact that this event will tie into the early days of the DC universe, or that DC has been on such a creative hot streak lately that anything they make will have a lot of attention, but whatever it is, Metal has a ton of hype, which means it has a lot to live up to. And while it’s not the action packed event that the Batman with battle axes promo images would have you believe, Snyder and Capullo are setting the stage for some major shake ups in the DC universe.

Picking up from the events of The Casting and The Forge (yes, you should definitely read those specials before this), Metal finds the Justice League being confronted with the mysterious origins of the Nth metal. The former Hawkgirl, now leader of the Blackhawks, confronts the heroes and informs them of her belief that the metal didn’t originate from one of the 52 known worlds of the Multiverse, but from a different, Dark Multiverse filled with nightmarish creatures beyond human comprehension. One in particular, Baphomet, has had his sights on Batman for years, believing that he can use the Dark Knight to bring him into our world. Is this the mystery that Batman has been researching in secret all these years?

Scott Snyder is well known as one of the THE Batman writers, but it’s a welcome change of pace to see him take on the other members of the Justice League. While initially pitched as a “Batman-centric” event, Metal features more time with Batman interacting with the Justice League than I initially expected, and it’s cool to see Snyder take on the differing personalities of the League here. In fact, I wouldn’t mind seeing him take on the League in their own book soon. Aside from that, this opening issue has Snyder starting to lay out the hints for where Metal will go, and they’re all very intriguing and look to be heading somewhere very cool.

What is there to say about Greg Capullo that I haven’t said before? If you’ve been missing his take on the DC Universe then you’ll be plenty happy with what’s contained in these pages. Capullo brings you Mongul, the Justice League in awesome medieval style armor, and a crazy Voltron Justice League robot all in the first 10 pages. The man is insane, and doesn’t slow down for a second. You can tell he’s been anxious to get back to the DC fold and this book is stronger for that.

Dark Nights: Metal, while maybe not being insanely action packed, is still a fantastic opening for this story, and if you’ve avoided the big last page spoiler by the time you read it, has a pretty big surprise as well. While I don’t know where exactly Snyder and Capullo will take us, but I know I’m definitely in for the ride.

Comic Review: Mage: The Hero Denied #1

 

Mage: The Hero Denied #1 (Image Comics) aHR0cDovL3d3dy5uZXdzYXJhbWEuY29tL2ltYWdlcy9pLzAwMC8xOTgvOTQxL29yaWdpbmFsL01hZ2VfRGVuaWVkXzAxX0NvdmVyLmpwZw==

Matt Wagner’s Mage series has been one of the longest running series in comics, despite having relatively few issues out. What started as his take on the Arthurian legend has spanned decades in comic book time, and the wait for this third (and final) installment, The Hero Denied, has been pretty long. So long so that I don’t really remember much of what happened in the previous series, The Hero Defined. Luckily though, Wagner’s third volume is easy to pick up and read without having to go back and track down those early issues.

Kevin Matchstick has been living a relatively quiet life with his family. The demons and monsters that he used to battle haven’t been seen for years, and he’s finally found a place to settle down. Everything has been normal, until he notices a few strange looking creatures while walking with his son in the park. Realizing that the forces of evil have found him yet again, Kevin Matchstick must return to battle the demons that not only threaten the world, but now his family as well.

Matt Wagner’s script does a spectacular job at not only setting the stakes for Kevin now, but also showing how much he has changed since the last volume of Mage ended way back in 1999. Kevin is a lot older now obviously, but seeing him care for his son and family is a really intriguing way to set up a whole new world of stakes for our hero aside from him just being older. A lot of times when a creator returns to a story after a long break the book doesn’t feel the same. Luckily that’s not the case here; Wagner hasn’t lost his edge at all.

Wagner also hasn’t lost his artistic style either. His art is still the same Mage style that the series is known for, and Wagner’s gift for cool creature designs is on full display when Kevin is attacked at the park. Wagner also has a lot of fun teasing the members of Kevin’s family, and has a fluidity to his art style that makes a strong case for a Mage animated series on FX or Adult Swim.

After such a long break, you wouldn’t be blamed for thinking that Mage: The Hero Denied would be a bad comic. But I can faithfully say that Wagner’s return to the world of Kevin Matchstick is pretty damn great. Wagner seems to be pulling out all the stops for this final volume in the Mage saga, and I can’t wait to see what he’s got planned.

“TV Review: Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later

Wet Hot American Summer is one of my favorite comedies of all time, so getting not one, but two follow up Netflix series is pretty insane to me. After the hype of First Day of Camp, the first Netflix follow-up that aired two years ago, I had completely forgotten about the sequel series Ten Years Later, and it seemed like Netflix did too (you can chalk this up to either lack of interest on their part or the fact that they have too many original programs, your choice). My love for the original Wet Hot is pretty deep, so any follow up to that is going to be held to a pretty high standard in my eyes, and while Ten Years Later has some very solid and funny moments, it’s easily the weakest installment of the Wet Hot “Trilogy”.

Probably the most impressive aspect of Ten Years Later is that David Wain and Michael Showalter were able to reassemble (almost) all of the cast for this follow up project. Taking place, you guessed it, ten years after the events the movie, this eight-episode series finds Coop (Showalter), Victor (Ken Marino), Katie (Marguerite Moreau) and the rest of your favorite camp counselors living our their professional lives in various locations around the country. They all come together to Camp Firewood for their ten year reunion, and the typical Wet Hot American Summer hijinks begin.

With anything associated with Wain and Showalter, there’s going to be a lot of fun skewering of genre tropes. In a lot of ways, the two poke fun at the very idea of a reunion show, which has become all the rage thanks to reboots of The X-Files, Gilmore Girls, and Arrested Development (which pretty much kicked off the whole “revival” thing)? There are jokes about what each character has been up to, and the constant reminder that they are “26” is pretty good for a laugh. But after a strong start, there’s a definite drag to the episodes, almost like Wain and Showalter ran out of the “funny ideas” and decided to amp up the absurdity. When Ten Years Later is on, it’s on, and it’s a shame that more of the jokes don’t quite stick their landing. If you were a fan of Showalter’s Ronald Reagan impression in First Day of Camp, well I have some good news for you: you’re gonna get that. A lot.

While there’s a lot of focus on the weird in Ten Years Later, there are a lot of jokes that still stick the landing. Andy’s (Paul Rudd) early grunge style is pretty damn hilarious, and his struggle with being an aging “cool guy” is great (the fifth episode, “King of Camp”, is arguably the best episode of the series because of this). Same goes for Christopher Meloni’s Gene, who’s criminally underused here, but gold every time you see him. I could watch a whole spin off series of Gene, Mitch the can of Vegetables (H Jon Benjamin), Eric (Chris Pine), and Greg (Jason Schwartzman) traveling the country as a demented A-Team helping people solve crimes in a ludicrous ways.

Weirdly enough, Ten Years Later feels less like a sequel to the original movie and more like a continuation of First Day of Camp. There are more characters from the prequel series that pop up here than in the original movie (Bradley Cooper is a no show, but the way the show gets around that is hilarious), and only a few threads from the movie are picked up here, like Coop and Katie’s continuing “will they, won’t they” relationship and Victor Pulack’s continuing quest to get laid. You could probably just watch the two Netflix series and skip the movie entirely and still get the main plot beats (which would be a crime in my book).

They always say there’s a weak link in any trilogy, and it sucks to say that Ten Years Later is that weak link. It’s certainly impressive that David Wain and Michael Showalter were able to get the entire cast back together, but it seems like they were in such a rush that they used the earliest takes they could get. There’s a fine line between funny and being weird for the sake of being weird, and the original Wet Hot and the prequel series walked that line brilliantly. Ten Years Later, however, doesn’t know when to cut back. By the end you’ll find yourself laughing at the absurdity of the plot, but also asking the same questions that the characters have.

Verdict: B
