Welcome to Around The Web! It’s premise is to highlight various comic book related content including the very best Tweets, links to interesting trailers/videos, and everything in between. It is a feature that will evolve and grow over time so consider this Version 1.0. With that said, let’s take a look at the very best of the week that was:
X-Men: Days of Future Past – Trailer #2
A truly epic trailer that showcases the entire roster of X-Men in the movie, whetting our appetites, showcasing the bleak future, while also teasing us with the looming threat of the Sentinels in both time periods. Simply x-ceptional!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
A better trailer than I thought it would be. My main gripes? I’m a fan of the actor portraying the Shredder, I just don’t think he should be portraying the Shredder. I’m also not big on the Foot Ninja looking to be mercenaries with guns and the faces of the turtles. Something about their noses just bugs me. Otherwise a solid opening salvo.
Wolverine: The Musical
A fun video where Hugh Jackman puts a twist on a Les Miserables song with some Wolverine-centric lyric choices.
I have never read a bad, or even mediocre, comic by @ruckawriter. Is this a coincidence?—

You remember it's not 1985, and it's OK for girls to be in comics, & you're glad it's now not then for every girl who wants to be in comics.—

Kids' school principal called me this morning. I went to his office. Wanted to ask if I could sign him a Hawkguy TPB. *drumrollcymbalcrash*—
