Contiene The Superb Spider-Man 311-329, Annual 22 y 23 y The Spectacular Spider-Man Annual 10 USA; Tomo cartoné. 528 páginas. 42,00€
Continúa la publicación del Spiderman de David Michelinie, quizás porque justo con los números que se incluyen en este volumen fue cuando comencé a coleccionar Spiderman que le tengo un especial cariño a estas historias en las que hizo tándem primero con Todd McFarlane – antes de dar el salto a Spiderman – y después junto a Erik Larsen. En este volumen se incluye la magnífica historia Complot por un magnicidio en la que Spiderman haría tándem con el Capitán América y Marta Plateada, o se las vería con villanos clásicos como Hidroman, el Lagarto, el Escorpión o Veneno convertido en el archinémesis de moda tras su debut unos años atrás. Además, se incluyen los números centrados en el evento Actos de venganza en los que Spiderman tuvo que hacer frente a villanos no habituales para él como Magneto o Gravitron. Oro puro o nostalgia pura, según se mire, en mi caso me va a faltar tiempo para comprarlo según salga a la venta para tenerlo en un formato más perdurable.
Koschei el Inmortal, de Mike Mignola, Ben Stenbeck y Dave Stewart. Norma Editorial (Marvel Comics). Colección Comedian USA. Contiene Koschei: The Deathless #1-6 USA; Tomo rústica. 168 páginas. 18,50€
Uno de los puntos más interesantes del Mignolaverso es su gran variedad de personajes secundarios. A Koschei el Inmortal le conocimos en La oscuridad llama, uno de los mejores arcos argumentales del universo Hellboy. Así pues, la santísima trinidad formada por Mike Mignola en los guiones, Ben Stenbeck en el dibujo y Dave Stewart con el colour, dan vida a este spinoff que se encuentra, desde ya, entre nuestros favoritos del demonio escarlata. Una taberna en el infierno, el mejor escenario posible, es el lugar donde Koschei limará sus asperezas con Anung-Un Rama relatando su trágico pasado. Viejos conocidos como la Baba Yaga o Vasilisa harán acto de presencia en una historia que vuelve a estar impregnada de leyendas y mitos. Brujas, demonios, espíritus, fantasmas y dragones serán los ingredientes de un cómic que merece estar en vuestra estantería si queréis que vuestra alma, escondida dentro de un huevo, dentro de un pato, dentro de un conejo, dentro de una cabra, dentro de un árbol que crece en una isla más allá de los confines del mundo, os sea devuelta.
Flash Vol. 02: La velocidad de la oscuridad, de Joshua Williamson, Jorge Corona, Felipe Watanabe, Davide Gianfelice y Neil Googe. ECC Cómics (DC Comics). Contiene The Flash #9-13 USA; Tomo cartoné. 128 páginas. 14,95€
Si cuando éramos más jóvenes, la llegada del verano suponía el consumo compulsivo de flashes congelados para combatir el calor, ahora será otro tipo de Flash el que nos acompañe en esta época estival. ECC publica el segundo volumen recopilatorio de esta nueva etapa del velocista escarlata que se antoja excellent para los nuevos adeptos que se quieran acercar a la Fuerza de la Velocidad. Joshua Williamson presenta su candidatura a colarse entre los grandes autores que han sabido llevar a Flash a su máximo esplendor como Mark Waid o Geoff Johns. En este ejemplar del nuevo Universo DC, tras las tropelías cometidas por Godspeed en el arco anterior, veremos a un Barry Allen que trata de compaginar su lucha contra el crimen con la formación del joven Wally West sin dejar de lado su vida private. Tras la desaparición de Meena, será Iris quien vuelva a ser el foco sentimental de Barry. Sin embargo, un viejo conocido como Shade y sus tierras sombrías pondrán en jaque a Flash y sus seres queridos. Nos encontramos con un ejemplar entretenido que va plantando semillas de lo que está por venir.
El reloj del juicio last Num. 01 (de 12), de Geoff Johns y Gary Frank. ECC Cómics (DC Comics). Contiene Doomsday Clock núm. 1 USA; Grapa. 40 páginas. Three,25€
La espera llego a su fin. Una de las collection más esperadas y que más controversia ha generado en los últimos años se publica en nuestro país. Tras las semillas plantadas en Renacimiento y La Chapa, todo estaba dispuesto para que el legado de Watchmen volviera a germinar. El primer número, de un complete de 12, pone las piezas sobre el tablero y nos genera nuevos interrogantes. ¿Quién se esconde bajo la máscara de Rorschach? ¿Dónde se encuentran sus antiguos compañeros de fatigas? Ambientada en 1992, siete años después de los acontecimientos de Watchmen, el maquiavélico plan de Adrien Veidt para conseguir un desarme nuclear se fue al traste. Una vez más, el planeta se encuentra en jaque con una Guerra que hace tiempo dejó de ser fría. Los otrora vigilantes dejaron de formar parte en la ecuación por la supervivencia de la humanidad, aunque un viejo conocido alberga una única esperanza. Prejuicios al margen, Geoff Johns se maneja a las mil maravillas en la escritura de un guion que, con todo el respeto del mundo, toma el rebufo de la obra maestra de Alan Moore para combinarlo con archiconocidos miembros del universo DC. El dibujo de Gary Frank y el colour de Brad Anderson hacen el resto. Imprescindible.
