‘MMPR: Pink’ might be your new obsession

I've somehow managed to completely ignore Boom's on-going Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers series due to a variety of factors. That's a weird mentality if you listened to the podcast or follow me on Twitter, because it's pretty obvious I'm a Power Rangers fanboy from back in the day. I've always had a weird relationship with the property, as it just wasn't considered "cool" when I was a kid for a very long time. Fortunately, Boom's gotten a handful of writers on hand who seem to share my adoration of the franchise, and I was curious as hell as to what they'd do with a Pink Ranger solo title.

All-New Wolverine #1 – A clone’s destiny

When Marvel announced they were killing Wolverine last year, I was skeptical. After all, it's not only comics, it's an X-Man. Hell, it's THE X-Man. Even in death, Wolverine's an insanely popular character, so kudos to Marvel for sticking to their guns and letting Logan stay six feet under. But it's not the Marvel U without a Wolverine, and while they're cheating a bit by having a universe displaced Old Man Logan show up in Extraordinary X-Men, it's been decided that the mantle would go down to Wolverine's clone Laura Kinney, formerly known as X-23.

The Vision #1 – Do synthezoids dream of families?

The last time we saw The Vision proper was in the Avengers special a month or two back where we learned he had wiped his emotions to keep his systems functioning properly. As a result, it's very jarring to see The Vision now residing in Arlington as the Avengers liason to the government. But that feeling may be intentional.
