Captain America, Free Comic

Marvel has released a prequel comic for their upcoming movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and you can read it online for free. Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier Infinite Comic #1 is written by Peter David with art by Rock-He Kim. In the book, Captain America works with S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Black Widow and Rumlow to stop a terrorist group from getting a mysterious weapon known as The Zodiac. Captain America isn’t quite sure who he can trust as he discovers that S.H.I.E.L.D is hiding sequels of their own about the weapon.

David had previously written the adaptation for Captain America: The First Avenger, so he is well versed with the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Steve Rogers. According to Marvel, the new book will showcase a key part of Roger’s journey; “the evolution of his patriotic zeal, from the scrappy young man bent on joining the war effort to a more thoughtful leader ever mindful of his minders.”

Click here to check out the issue for free digitally. Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters on April 4th, 2014.

Who would have thought that Myspace would still be good for anything? Not me for one. But if you head over to Dark Horse Comic’s Myspace page you are treated to dozens of free digital comics.

The one I’m going to look at right now is a special 4 part The Goon story. Part I is “The Big Blue Note” which was written and drawn by The Fillbach Brothers with colors by Wil Glass. Part II is “Bogged Down at Bush Street” by Rebecca Sugar and Frans Boukas. Part III is “A Reasonable Amount of Trouble” written by John Arcudi with art by Herb Trimpe and colors by Dan Jackson. Part IV is “Enter the Pecker” written and drawn by Bob Fingerman.

Read the free The Goon online comic book here. For those out of the know; The Goon, created by Eric Powell, is a pulp crime comic book mixed with violent/dark comedy elements and a paranormal twist- basically everything I love in a story.

The Goon has had a movie in development for a while with creator Eric Powell writing it and David Fincher producing it. They even got as far as showing test footage at the 2010 San Diego Comic Con. But sadly, there is no new movement on the animated feature. Here is hoping that it will move forward in the future.

We are only a couple months away from the milestone 100th issue of Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead. If you have been to this site in the past, then you know that it is my favorite ongoing comic and while most titles get worse with age, The Walking Dead has consistently been an entertaining edge of your seat thrill ride and a character study of normal people coping with the end of the world. It spawned one of the best shows on television (and the highest rated Cable series ever), although as good as the show is, it does not hold a candle to the comic.

Now might be a good time to go back and reread the first issue of the series and thanks to Image Comics, you can legally read The Walking Dead issue 1 (and issue 49) online for free. If you are a fan of the television version of The Walking Dead, I highly (HIGHLY) recommend checking out the first issue and considering ordering the trades online. If you have never heard of The Walking Dead before reading this post, it is a comic series in which a Sheriff deputy and family man, Rick Grimes, wakes up from a coma in a hospital to discover that the world has been overrun by zombies.  Not knowing how long he was out cold, he must regain his strength and fight through hordes of the undead to find and protect his family. Along the way he runs into a lot of different survivors and finds out that some or much worse than the zombies.

Free Online Comic Book

Have you been enjoying HBO and Alan Ball’s take on vampire lore in “True Blood”?  Than you might be interested in the 40 page prequel comic book that they have released online, “True Blood: The Great Revelation”.

The issue focuses on a centuries-old vampire who is reflecting about what it has been like to be a vampire and what the development of synthetic blood (aka Tru Blood) means to his kind. He journeys to Japan to see where the product is developed and to decide whether he wants to support vampires “coming out of the coffin” or not.

You can check out a few preview pages below and read the whole issue here. The comic features art by Jason Badower, and was written by David Wohl, from a story by Brian Cain and Gregg Hale.

And don’t forget, an all new episode of “True Blood” airs tonight at 9pm on HBO.

If you haven’t watched “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” yet, then you should drop everything and go watch it now! Then come back here so I can tell you about “Captain Hammer: Be like me! Nemesis of Dr. Horrible!”, a short online comic book from Dark Horse Comics. The comic features non other than Joss Whedon’s Captain Hammer, a hero that thinks he’s SUPER (with of course an appearance by Dr. Horrible himself).

The comic was penned by Zack Whedon with art by Eric Canete. You can read it here.
