Marvel's Luke Cage: episode 6 viewing notes: Suckas Need Bodyguards

James Hunt Oct 10, 2016

Is Luke Cage being sidelined in his own show? Here are our episode 6 viewing notes. Spoilers ahead...

Luke Cage is back! In his own show! And so are our Marvel-Netflix episode notes where we’ll do a bit of commentary and reference-spotting for each episode of the series. Feel free to read along as you watch too, but please don’t spoil future episodes for anyone in the comments!

This episode saw Scarfe living up to his crooked nature and eventually paying the ultimate price for it – though I was totally on side with those aghast at Cottonmouth just murdering a cop and expecting to walk away from that. Clearly, things are escalating fast.

This is also one of those episodes that makes me see the complaint that Luke isn’t in his own show enough – and even when he is in it, he’s not really in the driving seat.

Marvel's Luke Cage episode 3 viewing notes: Who's Gonna Take The Weight?

James Hunt Oct 5, 2016

Our episode-by-episode companion viewing notes to Marvel's Luke Cage reach the third instalment of this superbly written show...

Luke Cage is back! In his own show! And so are our Marvel-Netflix episode notes where we’ll do a bit of commentary and reference-spotting for each episode of the series. Feel free to read along as you watch too, but please don’t spoil future episodes for anyone in the comments!

Episode 3 had some powerful scenes, not least Pop’s funeral, but this is where the show’s pacing really starts to become clear. It’s obvious that Luke Cage is a superbly written show – easily of a quality far higher than anything else Marvel has put on TV so far – but it’s considerably lighter on action.

I find the additional breathing space really helps us flesh out the characters and world, but it also means I

Top 10 New Comic Book Series of 2010

  • Nerdly
Again only comics I’ve bought that were published in 2010. If you think I’ve missed something please let me know in the comments section below, after all this is only mine and Phil’s opinions. I’m always open to trying new things… comics, I mean comics!

1: Uncanny X-Force | Marvel | W: Rick Remender | A: Jerome Opena

Only 3 issues in an this series is looking like the best X-Men series currently being published, and that’s not to say the titles by Fraction, Gillen, Carey, and David aren’t good, it’s just that Uncanny X-Force has that certain something that makes it stand out. It’s a combination of the tight, fast paced writing of Remender, the amazing art by Opena and White, and lots of little touches that the creators add that make it a perfect comic.

2: Avengers Children’s Crusade | Marvel | W: Allan Heinberg | A:

Fortnightly(s) Favourites

  • Nerdly
Another selection of favourites from the Baron, look out for my Festive Fortnightly Favourites once I find some Christmas themed comics.

Uncanny X-Force 2 | Marvel | W: Rick Remender | A: Jerome Opena

This is one of the best comics I picked up this fortnight and the story of the new X-Force verse the resurrected Apocalypse is really building into a classic X-Men story. I’ve found comics produced without an inking stage to be very hit or miss, Jerome Opena’s pencils with Dean White’s colouring are definitely a hit, the use of pinks, purples, blues and greys sets this comic apart from the other mutant comics, and Opena’s facial expressions and figure work is spot on. Even the panel borders get a thumbs up from me, with panels set in the danger room having a soft edge, which hardens as the danger room program shuts down. Also check out the shot of Cavern-x,

Fortnightly(s) Favourites

  • Nerdly
I’m Baron Fortnightly and these are my recommendations for comics that have shipped in the last two weeks.

Pilot Season: 7 Days From Hell | Image Comics | W: Bryan Edward Hill & Rob Levin | A: Phil Noto

Interesting story about redemption in which an assassin who’s saved from Hell by a female demon/fallen angel who gives him a target to kill every 7 days, if he doesn’t make the deadline he goes back to hell. All done in Noto’s trademark style.

Turf 3 (of 5) | Image Comics | W: Jonathan Ross | A: Tommy Lee Edwards

Less wordy that the first issue, it’s good to see plot threads coming together, especially as there are so many of them – vampires, aliens, mobsters and reporters… oh my, and all drawn by Edwards.

The New Avengers 5 | Marvel | W: Brian Michael Bendis | A: Stuart Immonen

I think there are more word balloons in this issue than

Two more of Marvel’s ‘…For Hire’ Teasers

  • Nerdly
Earlier this week Marvel released two “…For Hire” teasers – featuring Elektra alongside the caption ‘Assassin for Hire’; and The Falcon with the caption ‘Wingman for Hire’. Well now we have another two teasers in the same series, which – if you read this post – you’ll know are promoting the return of Marvel’s iconic Heroes For Hire comic book.

These teasers feature Misty Knight and Paladin, who can currently be seen in Antony Johnston’s most excellent Shadowland: Blood on the Streets mini-series. Of course for those in the know, both Misty and Paladin appeared in the last iteration of Heroes for Hire which spun out of Marvel’s huge Civil War event.
