MORE NEWS FROM THE WEB

Is there anyone that loves Captain America as much as our very own Scotty Cook?  We think not. But what does comics addict do when looking for a new character to love? Here is one man’s explanation.

As many of you know, my area of expertise while writing for ComiConverse has been anything and everything Steve Rogers. The last few months for me have been a roller-coaster ride of emotions, as it pertains to Captain America and the reinvention of Steve Rogers.

First, we had one of my favorite Steve Rogers story arcs of all time, Planet Hulk.

How can you beat that concept?

Steve Rogers as a Viking-esque gladiator, fighting to rescue Bucky, on the back of his Warbrother, Devil Dinosaur. There was so much weeping, gnashing of the teeth, and pulling of the hair with me when that run ended.

It looked like a scene straight out of the Old Testament in my house.

Story continues below

Next, there was Captain America: White. Great story arc, amazing art, and the heartbreaking thread of Steve Rogers remembering the young Bucky Barnes. This story arc brought the old school back, with Bucky being a teenager, not a bionic armed psychopath out to kill his former best friend. I would recommend this arc to any Cap fan, but the story ends too abruptly for me.

I wish the characters would have had more time to develop and the writers would have explored more within the world.

Lastly, Sam Wilson: Captain America. I have said it before and I will say it again, Sam Wilson is a great Captain America. I have endorsed Marvel’s choice in handing the Cap mantle over to Sam since the beginning. The way they have fused his Falcon attributes with that of classic Cap is awesome. With that said, the new story arc has taken a very weird twist.

Cap Wolf is back!!!

I never thought I would say those words again. I am sorry, but I don’t want to have a Twilight-themed Captain America story or werewolves in the comics I read. Besides that all my friends and family can tell you I have always been, and always will be, Team Edward.

Just joking but not really. Anyways…

The writers have so many interesting ways they could go with Sam Wilson as a character and it seems like they are going out of their way to drive people away from a very deep character with massive potential.

I will say again, I fully endorse Sam Wilson but not a huge fan of the direction Marvel is going with the current story.

With all that said, I began to comb the shelves of my local comic shop and found the comic that lifted my spirits once again.

What comic could draw me away from Steve Rogers you ask?

Story continues below

I will tell you in one word: Huck

The new series, Huck, by Image Comics is so simplistic and raw, it brings tears to my eyes. In a day and age where writers and artists are pushing the limits of comics to new heights, Huck stuns with a simple yet dramatic storyline and art that jumps off the page. Its taking everything in my power not to tell the ComiConverse world everything about the first three issues, but I will restrain myself.

Let me just say, this is a story about an ordinary guy, with super powers, trying to do good every day in his small town. Is there superhero stuff in the stories, yes, but it is such a beautiful story about a guy making a difference by being nice.

Wow, what a concept right?

On some levels it is also raises a great sociologic question: If our world found a person with super powers, would we let that person live in peace or try and exploit them?

I will leave this question and many more for you to answer for yourself.

Huck will not disappoint and it may even make you smile. Have fun reading!

  • The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  • This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  • Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
