This Time… It’ll Really Work !

October 15, 2010



I suppose it was only a matter of time until it finally happened.

An announcement was made & now the Jade Giant, the Green Goliath, the one & only Hulk will return.

Yet again.



No no, this isn’t about his appearance in “The Avengers” in 2012.

It’s another solo effort for the incredible one.

But what’s really incredible is that Marvel apparently doesn’t know when to call it quits.



Why are they so keen on continuing to peddle the (sofar-not-so-incredible) Hulk franchise after so many previous attempts did not generate successful results ?

None of the past Hulk cartoons had a long run & the latest one “Hulk: Gamma Corps” was cancelled while still in the pre-production stage.

Meanwhile, the 2 recent live-action movies both, for different reasons, failed to really capture the interest of Joe & Jane Moviegoer.



Ok, cartoons didn’t last & movies didn’t work.

So… what’s left ?

Well, apparently a brand new live-action TV series ?!?!



While the original 70s TV series starring Bill Bixby & Lou Ferrigno was eventually cancelled, it was & still is the most successful incarnation of the Hulk outside comics.

Bring back the original intro & outro themes, add some realistic looking CGI & this might just work.

Oh & while you’re at it, introduce a certain female cousin who practices law…

A Special Message For A Special Someone

February 14, 2010



It’s the ’80s.

CBS airs a successful TV series starring Bill Bixby & Lou Ferrigno.

It is called “The Incredible Hulk”.



However, this success & the fact that “The Six Million Dollar Man” TV series lead to spin-off “The Bionic Woman” leaves Marvel Comics with fears that sooner or later a female version of the green monster will be introduced.

Not wanting to lose ownership for this hypothetical character, Stan Lee & John Buscema create her origin for Marvel…



Since her 1st appearance back then, she’s had 3 comic series of her own, multiple appearances in other comics, guest roles in cartoons & even rumours of her starring in a live action movie.

Hopefully someday.



February 2010 marks her 30th anniversary.

That is a milestone event & nothing in the entire Universe was going to keep us from congratulating the world’s sexiest, sassiest & strongest superheroine.



From everyone here at X-Mer, sincere congratulations on this sensational anniversary of yours, Jennifer.

May your success continue to shine for another 30 years & more…






Congrats Jen !


Women’s Fantasies Made Real

December 16, 2009

Hot on the heels of the Wonder Woman comic reaching issue 600 comes more woman + comics news…


Girl Comics, a 3-issue monthly limited series starting March 2010, will feature content made entirely by female comic contributors.

Published as an anthology, this Marvel Comics project will have women writers, women artists, women inkers, women editors, etc.



But will this group be able to prove they have better story ideas for the character of Jennifer Walters AKA She-Hulk than their male counterparts ever had ?



She-Hulk Beats Iron Man



Here’s hoping, as I certainly like the cover for issue 1…


It’s Not Easy Being Green

August 1, 2009

You might have search-engined her stunning pic(s) back to this very blog before but even if you’re new here, I’d still like you to welcome back…

the world’s sexiest…

sassiest…

& strongest superheroine.

The one…

the only…



She-Hulk !



Now before you scroll down fully aroused or even turned off @ the thought of seeing pictures of my fave Gamma Gal, I’d like to point out a difference.

Sure, @ 1st glance this entry might seem like the latest in a long line of posts filled with gratuitous pics of semi-naked muscular women superheroines BUT there’s a good reason this time…



You see Marvel is finally really pushing the name “She-Hulk” these days, which would normally be a good thing since her very own comicbook was cancelled just recently.

However, none of these initiatives actually involve her.

Sound confusing ?

Well, worry no more ’cause you’re just 1 downwards scroll away from total enlightment…



Example I:

WTF ?


Right as the original’s comic was being cancelled this new version showed up. That kind of perfect timing could be coincidence but did they have to name her comic “The Savage She-Hulk” ?

Anyway, her name is Lyra & (get this) she’s the genetically engineered daughter of the Hulk… who came all the way from the future (of course), where (if we go by her outfit) there’s an apparent serious shortage of clothing material (the poor thing hulk).

Seem bad ? Well, it gets worse… really…



Example II:

WTF ?


No, not a hoax (but a joke nonetheless) & just announced by Marvel, it’s the all-new (& apparently weapon carrying) RED She-Hulk !

Yeah, why stop at RED skinned Hulk (don’t ask) when you can have a female version running around as well ? Some “writer” must’ve given 1 hell of a pitch because that’s what it comes down to.

& just to be clear, no, this isn’t the original She-Hulk wearing bodypaint or something like that. This… “character” is someone else who just happens to be She-Hulk (in name only) & as you can no doubt see, has even worse luck than Lyra with her outfit.



Now if the red Hulk is named Rulk (yech !), does that make this woman She-Rulk ???

Or… dare I type it… Shrulkie ???

Marvel ! Enough nonsense already ! After the cancellation, the obvious replacement by these 2 fake skanks & the original’s recent & oh so convenient disappearance… WTF’s next, hmmm ?



She-Clulk ??? (The clone of She-Hulk)

She-Zulk ??? (The zombie of She-Hulk)

She-Dulk ??? (The daughter of She-Hulk)

Surely, a monthly 12-part long “Death Of A She-Hulk” storyline would sell like hot cakes & generate mucho $$$ for you. So, just get it over with already & kill the original off. Because as things stand, it would actually be a blessing.



In the meantime, to rinse away the bad tastes & end on a happier note, I’d like to present you all with my very own take on the Real Deal.

Yes, she’s both savage & sensational…

the one & only…



Jennifer Walters

1-Page Comic Challenge 2009

May 4, 2009

IT’S BACK ! 😀

Yes, even though a follow-up wasn’t planned, the 1-Page Comic Challenge was issued once again.

& after almost a whole month of hard labour (& a neverending supply of wonderful setbacks), it’s finally ready to be shown to an unsuspecting world !

Back in 2008, the very first challenge was issued by me. But this year I was the one to be called out.

It all began sometime late February, possibly early March when a pal o’ mine wanted to do it all over again.

& so we did.

I came up with a story for him to draw & he came up with 1 for me.

The catch being of course, it had to fit on just 1 single page. No more.

We then gave ourselves a deadline of about a month to finish the art & we were off…

But unlike last year, there was a theme this time. Superheroes.

This made the project, for me personally, a lot more challenging than the one we did in 2008.

The previously mentioned setbacks were genuine bastards. Never before had I encountered so much… “resistance” in getting some artwork done.

But in the end, I made it… barely.

Another week or so would have benefited the artwork but drawing & the finishing of the story was still an achievement for me. & now that it’s all over I’m glad I got such a “workout” of sorts with what my friend wrote.

Anyway, both of the finished 1-Page Comics are shown below in thumbnail form for you to get the gist of it.



FREE Comic ! another FREE Comic !


& you can download both of them as full-sized versions from Rapidshare with the following link.

So, what are you waiting for ?

Woo-Hoo !

How’s that for deep meaningful insight into the way the Universe works, hmmm ?

American Hulk X

April 16, 2007

Upcoming movie “The Incredible Hulk” has found itself a leading man.

Edward Norton IS Dr Banner but not until the 13th of June in 2008. Unlike the previous Ang Lee effort, this movie is to be more in the vain of the Bill Bixby/Lou Ferrigno TV-series.

Can a She-Hulk movie be far behind ???

B4 X-Mer: Reading Great Comics = A Jolly Good Time !

May 2, 2006



Before X-Mer’s New Atlantica Page here on WordPress, there were the early days on “Windows Live Spaces”.

When they closed down, an offer was made to save & move content here.

What follows are some of my earliest attempts at… well… whatever it is I did there so long ago…





Hey there, how’s it going for you ?
 
Been reading comics but they’re not doing it for you ? Well, "Straczendis" type of writers will kill the joy out of reading comics any time.
 
Don’t be fooled by the ignorant masses who mistake their derivative claptrap for good writing.
 
NO! No, I say. Demand quality from your monthly funnies !
 
As luck would have it, I’ve compiled a little something I like to call…
 
The List O’ Cool Comics  
 
A list of comics you COULD actually be reading but quite possibly aren’t for whatever silly reason. Isn’t that great of me, to help you out like that ? Yeah, I’m the best & all that. Go me ! Anyhoo, here it is then.
