  • 50 Cent Comics – Sex #3

    Next up in my 50 cent comic book haul from MegaCon 2019 is Sex #3 by Image Comics. The name of this one is certainly suggestive anyway. However, this seems to be one of those comics you had to start at the beginning to know WTF is going on.

    I mean there were a couple of random sex scenes. There were a couple of random violent scenes too for that matter so it could have been called ‘Sex and Violence’ I suppose. That one was probably taken.

    But as far as a story? No idea. It has something to do with a random and apparently wealthy business guy whining about his life though…

  • 50 Cent Comics – The Magdalena #6

    Next up in my 50 cent comic book haul from MegaCon 2019 is The Magdalena #6 from 2011.

    The Magdalena is about a descendant of Jesus of Nazareth. A long line of Magdalenas have protected the church throughout its history, one every generation in fact. In this story line, a reluctant Magdalena is convinced to look into a supposed son of Satan.

    In this issue, The Magdalena battles a demon, or perhaps Satan himself, or maybe some other entity… It’s left a little unclear. At any rate, it is revealed (to the reader, not Magdalena) that Cardinal Innocent has been working with the leader of the supposed son of Satan. His purpose was to convince a reluctant Magdalena to work for the Church. Magdalena gets a much deserved break and is relaxing on the beach at the end of this issue.

    The Spectacular Spider-Man #123

    Next up in my 50 cent comic book haul from MegaCon 2019 is The Spectacular Spider-Man #123 from February 1987.

    The Spectacular Spider-Man #123

    This issue involves the villain Blaze (spoiler alert – he appears to die in this issue). Apparently he has been paid by Foreigner to kill both Spider-Man and The Black Cat. This issue starts off with Spider-Man rescuing The Black Cat from an explosion in her apartment. This leads to an awkward situation when Mary Jane comes to visit Peter later and The Black Cat is in his apartment.

    The Spectacular Spider-Man #123

    At any rate, Blaze and his henchman kidnap and torture a woman in an effort to get Spider-Man and Black Cat to make him a better offer. It didn’t really work out so well for him. Neither Spider-Man nor Black Cat have yet figured out that Kris Keating, who pointed them to Blaze in the first place, is really Foreigner and the one who hired Blaze to kill them.

    I’m not sure why the cover says “Blaze is Back”. As far as I could determine, this was his first and last appearance.
