Weekly Marvel Tidbits with Dustin

Weekly Marvel Tidbits with Dustin

By Dustin M. Best

As many people may be aware...I am a bit of a Marvel fanboy and primary apologist. This week has offered a slew of teasers and news regarding the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so I am here to help you digest what Marvel is putting out there!

It's Inhuman!

(Gorgon, Karnak, Black Bolt, Medusa, Crystal, Maximus)

The Inhumans have been a primary focus of Marvel for the past 3-4 years now. Being introduced in Marvel Agents of SHIELD, we have seen a handful of Inhumans pop up including Daisy Johnson (aka Quake), Hive, Lash and Gordon. Since we have yet to see any of the Royal Family, let a lone hear about them, it will be interesting to see how Marvel introduces them into the already existing Inhuman realm.

Will Inhumans acknowledge the fact that several Inhumans have populated on Earth during SHIELD? When will we get our first glimpse of Lockjaw (a massive, teleporting Inhuman dog)? I for one cannot wait for September to arrive and for the terrigen mists to encompass the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

I Want To Runaways

(Gert, Nico, Alex, Chase, Karolina, Molly)

The first Marvel series on Hulu has been announced and it's none other than the super-teen, cult favorite...Runaways! Originally created by the Brian K. Vaughn and Adrian Alphona, there series lasted 30 issues but the main cast has sprung up in several series across Marvel titles.

Originally the team was brought together due to their respective parents running an evil empire, "The Pride", creating an awesome dynamic for these teens. The group is forced to rely on each other in very dynamic ways making this a must watch show when it launches!

Marvel Comic Pick of the Week

The former King of Attilan and Inhuman emperor, Black Bolt, debuted this week with his first solo title...ever! That is hard to believe seeing as how Black Bolt has been active in Marvel titles since 1965 debuting in Fantastic Four #45. Writer Saladin Ahmed and artist Christian Ward do a wonderful job in this opening issue.
Without spoiling much, Black Bolt finds himself imprisoned knowing not where he is. The Silent King ponders how he has gotten there and what events lead to him being chained and shackled. As he soon discovers, he imprisoned himself there. Why? Those are questions soon to be answered so be sure to subscribe to Black Bolt at your local Uncanny!
While you may not enjoy the Inhumans...the artwork by Ward will surely blow you away!

Song of the Week

We here at Uncanny! love music so much that we host the occasional concert. This little segment is dedicated to all our loyal customers who just need that weekly musical lift me up.

This week's selection is by Maryland hip-hop artist, Logic. Off of his "Everybody" album, Logic speaks on the feeling of being alone...the feeling that the life you live isn't what it should be or what society expects it to be. "1-800-273-8255" is not only the name of the track, but the actual number to the national suicide prevention hotline.

Uncanny! is proud to support those who may feel lost, unseen and forgotten. You have a safe place here, so do not ever feel so hopeless that you do something to hurt the most important life in the world...yours. Talk to us. Talk to somebody. We are here to listen.

Now go ahead and put some Logic in your life, suitable for all audiences!

...and in case you wanted the story behind the song, here is Logic to explain:

That is all for today's Marvel Tidbits with Dustin, remember to keep pushing through!
