Dark Avengers #5 inside art

If you live in the Hollywood area or have ever watched Blair Butler do her thing on AOTS's Fresh Ink, then you're at least loosely aware of the iconic comic book store, Golden Apple Comics. What you might not be aware of, unless you've read Issue #5 of Marvel's Dark Avengers, is that in the last few pages giant monsters attack the store. It's a cool nod to the fans and the legendary staple that had me grinning ear to ear when I saw it. However, there's one little detail that's off.

More than a year ago, Golden Apple comics moved from its location at 7711 Melrose, which is shown in the book, to it's new location at 7018 Melrose. Still, it's pretty damn awesome to see a store that I shopped at as a kid (as I'm sure some of you did) get a moment in the spotlight. Good one, Mr. Bendis or Mr. Deodato or whoever's idea it was! Look below for pictures of the real world counterpart of the panel above as well as pictures of the new location. Excelsior!

Crack The Spine: 'Secret Warriors' #4 After a long absence Nick Fury is back and in a big, bad way and he's got company. As seen in the pages of Secret Invasion, Fury and his new team of young hell raisers (some would call them Howling Commandos) are doing what ol' eye patch does best, defending the world against tyranny, in this case, the world dominating cult of Hydra.

Following the revelation in Issue #2 that S.H.I.E.L.D. (now H.A.M.M.E.R.) has always been secretly run by Hydra, Nick sends his team to the Australian Outback to recruit new talent in the form of a reality bending mutant named, Eden Fesi, while he travels to Africa to recruit some talent of his own, namely S.H.I.E.L.D. bruiser, Dum Dum Dugan, as well as the remaining S.H.I.E.L.D. agents who have refused to be a part of Norman Osborn's new world police. F@#% yeah! It's a sweet, sweet reunion, one that will make Nick Fury fans very happy. Meanwhile, the heads of Hydra, ever the over-eager fascists, make plans to conquer the world and to deal with Fury's insurgency in what will surely be a twisted and brutal way.

Crack The Spine: 'Thor' #601

Posted May 13, 2009 - By Eugene Morton

Thor #601As The Cabal divvies up the 616 universe, they enact sweeping and unrelenting havoc, both on the nations of the world and in the lives of Marvel's heroes, havoc against which no one can stand, not even the god of thunder, Thor. Directly following the events of the previous issue (in which Loki tricks Thor into killing his grandfather, thereby earning him banishment from Asgard) we find the hero alone in the fields of Oklahoma, with a broken Mjolnir and no hope of being reunited with his people or homeland again.

Issue #601 is mainly an exile's tale, one longtime fans might have never thought they'd read in the pages of Thor. The warrior who has turned aside armies and crushed mountains becomes as emotionally vulnerable as a lost pup. It was one thing to lose his lady love, Sif, but to lose everything he has ever known simultaneously is a much worse fate. Yet, there are no Avengers to help, Captain America can't save the day and none of the pantheon of gods would dare subvert the laws of Asgard. It's a look at the Odin son, we've not seen often before. Though he remains stoic in the face of this tremendous setback, you can almost feel his heart shatter (thanks to the penciling of Marko Djurdjevic) as Mjolnir has been shattered.
