The best thing I read last week was New Warriors vol 5 issue #1. I’ll just say it’s simple and sweet. In 1990 the first comic I bought with my own money was New Warriors vol 1 issue #1, and I was hooked. Not only did it cement me as a lifelong comic fan but it made me a New Warriors fan for life. Marvel has deemed fit to bring back my very favorite super team with some new members and some classic. Lo and behold, I have my Warriors back!
The new group so far appears to only have 2 previous Warriors as members, Vance Astrovik a.k.a. Marvel Boy now know as Justice and the heart of the team, the Masked Marvel himself, Bobbie Baldwin the super kinetic Speedball! At the start of this first issue the team is not together yet so writer Christopher Yost is taking us along to form this new crew so as the series progresses we will get to see the members meet and interact, a lot of them for the first time. I’m so excited.
Bringing Yost’s powerful prose to life is the spectacular Marcus To, honestly you could buy this book just to look especially after David Curiel puts his paint brush down and colors To’s lines. All round fantastic job by the new crew. I loved it. I bought 2 copies. I have a 3rd on the way signed by Marcus Totravelling all the way from Canada to me.
The New Warriors are back baby!
