Jason Aaron’s Spotlight Begins
The Marvel Jason Aaron Sale runs through Thursday, 7/1.
Perhaps best described as the regular Marvel U Jason Aaron, this covers a lot of territory.
If you want a value buy, there’s the nice thick volumes of Thor by Jason Aaron: The Complete Collection, which starts with the “God Butcher” material and features art by the likes of Nic Klein, Ron Garney, Esad Ribic and Russell Dauterman (among others) as the saga unfolds and Jane Foster moves to center stage.
There’s also the entire “Life and Death of Conan” run by Aaron and Mahmud Arsar from Conan the Barbarian, now in one volume.
And quite a bit more, since Aaron’s had a long run at Marvel.
The Marvel Ultimate Universe Sale runs through Sunday, 6/27.
You already know about the original flagship titles of the Ultimate run, so let’s look at a couple things from a bit later in the universe from names you might just find familiar.
How about Ultimate Captain America by Jason Aaron (him again?) and Ron Garney, which we enjoyed back in the day.
And before was the X-Men showrunner, Jonathan Hickman had a run on Ultimate Comics – The Ultimates with Esad Ribic as the primary artist. Most people would consider that an interesting creative pair, we think.
The Dark Horse Black Hammer Sale runs through Monday, 6/28.
This critical darling by Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston is very much a world building experience. Start with the core series and then branch to the spin-offs as the spotlighted characters catch your fancy. There’s plenty of imagination to go around.
