Torrent description

The Hood







Publisher: Max Comics (Marvel Comics)

Year: 2002

Schedule: 6 Issue Limited Series

File Type: .CBR













Synopsis:



Comics starring super-villains are nothing new. In the '70's, Doctor Doom had his own

series in ASTONISHING TALES, and the Joker had his eponymous book. More recently, we've

seen THE THUNDERBOLTS. But it never quite works; reading about villains who never swear

or smoke dope or get laid is kind of like watching cop shows where no one curses or smacks

around a suspect just for kicks. It doesn't ring true. But when you're publishing a general

audiences comic, you have no other choice, right?



Well, Marvel has solved that problem by releasing THE HOOD under their mature readers MAX

imprint. THE HOOD, a 6-issue limited series by Brian Vaughan and Kyle Hotz, stars small-time

hood (get it?) Parker Robbins, a character who unapologetically curses, steals, and cheats

on his pregnant girlfriend. Like Tony Soprano, he's not totally unsympathetic; he has his

own code of honor, as we see when he and his cousin/partner in crime John kick the crap out

of a Hydra terrorist who attempts to recruit them, getting a little post-9/11

revenge for the city of New York. And Parker does want to take care of his girlfriend and

baby, as well as his Mom, who has Alzheimer's and needs constant care. It's just that he

feels the best way to accomplish these goals is through robbery.



At a time when there aren't many fresh ideas in comics, THE HOOD feels fresh because of

its uncensored approach to the subject matter. Like the TV shows THE SHIELD or the

aforementioned SOPRANOS, these are truly morally ambiguous characters, acting out of the

base desires we all have - greed, lust, wrath - rather than some grandiose plan to rule

the world. Cameos by Marvel super-villains like Electro and The Constrictor firmly

establish this series in the Marvel Universe, but Vaughan wisely keeps the focus on

characters he's created and can play with more freely. We all know that if he kills

The Shocker in this series, the dude will be back frying Spider-Man's ass two months

from now, but recovering heroin addict John could easily bite the dust, which adds

suspense to the story.



While some creators think a Mature Readers stamp is nothing more than an excuse to

take established characters and have them swear, kill and screw up a storm with no

rhyme or reason to it, Vaughan and Hotz are using their freedom to give us a fresh

take on established conventions, and tell a damn good story in the process.





Recommeded for Mature Readers (Explicit Content)
