[MOTW 3/17] St. Patrick's Day Edition!

edited March 2010 in Graphic Violence
Since I only had a chance to swing by the comics shop yesterday to catch up on the last few weeks, I'll take the liberty of making this week's MOTW post to celebrate my two $1 Bin Finds of the Week:

Runner-Up MOTW:
Kitty Pride and Wolverine #1 for $1! Kitty in an ice skating uniform with a fever! It's 1984, back when the X-Men were always flying to and from Japan and fighting ninja for no good reason!

MOTW For Real:
New Mutants Special Edition #1! Asgardian Wars tie in. What do kids these days know about classic mid-80s Art Adams pencils? I still have the TPB of this somewhere in a box, but I had to grab the actual issue for a buck. It is so 1985 it's out of control.

Highlights:

- It's the mid-80s, so a character can get a white pegasus and no one even bats an eye.
- Loki turns Storm into a hawk, and the hawk still has a tiny white mohawk.
- This is back when characters still inexplicably felt the need to announce their names and/or powers as they were attacking someone.

Cover shot:
Spoiler:

For those of you who actually bought comics today: let's hear some MOTW excellence!

    Siege was pretty good. While it didnt have one singular, "omfg-thats-awesome" moment, it did have a bunch of smaller, "thats pretty sweet" moments.

    I cannot wait for Phobo to kick Sentry's ass tho.

    Jesus christ, every fucking panel of Siege #3. This is the first time Marvel has delivered on an event for me for a long time, but I'm loving it so much.

    X-Posted in the bitching thread.

    On the flipside, Solar, Sentry has in one issue become infinitely more interesting. Theres good art and Sentry gets to do some awesome stuff.

    I like how you posted the same thing in each thread, but I don't see how it was bad. Sure Captain America gets a sloppy one, but on the whole it's a long way into the good camp. Norman Osborn freaking out while the Void sits in the sky above just screams "this shit just got real" to me.

    Alos, Ozzy says he knows who the Sentry really is, hopefully we'll find that out, because the whole Angel of Death thing hasn't been explained yet.

    Why would Norman wear that on his face?

    I mean, he had the film crew come there. He knew there were cameras. Why would he take the time to do that?

    Other than that, it was a pretty awesome issue.

    Always the possibility that Loki put it there and that Norman doesn't even realize its on his face at that moment.

    And he was probably intending on staying in his Iron Patrior armor, no?

    I think that was the plan. I think Osborn has grown to rely on the advice and strength of his goblin persona, you see it in Siege: The Cabal when he says "you always know what to do," and that he's bowing to it more and more suggests that he's actually reverting to that state. And of course since it's hard to wear the goblin mask under that armour plate...

    Siege 3 was definitely great, but my moment of the week was at Megacon in Orlando over the weekend. Managed to track down Nova #1 from the first series and get it signed by Marv Wolfman, along with the Marvel Legends Nova figure that he was shocked to see existed.

    I'm sure that's going to be the big reveal that redeems the Sentry to the heroes when all is said and done. No way would Bendis set something like that up without a major payoff.

    Yes, but considering how often costumes come off, or even just how often armoured guys open their masks, you think he wouldn't risk it. Has Norman EVER gone out in his armour and not opened the mask?

    It's like calling a press conference, wearing your Nazi underwear to that conference, while you know how often you get your pants pulled down, and you've never worn those Nazi briefs before.

    Hey now that is pretty cool. I'm impressed.

    I didn't get the BN Titans mini-series and now Dove is getting a lot of page time. Feels like she just comes out of nowhere in my Blackest Night issues with no explanation. Should I include the Titans issues in my BN reading order? Do they feel more important now that Dove is doing stuff?

    no, what is explained on that page is basically all you need to know about Dove right now (we should hopefully get an explanation in BN#8)

    Uh, I don't think he was wearing facepaint. I think the idea is that that's his face. Notice that his eyes and teeth are quite yellow and the green appears to be spreading. There's even one panel where you see the purple of the shroud start to come out on his forehead.

    I know that this would be a new thing for the Goblin but it could possibly be something Loki did to him. I think the idea is that Osbourne getting beat caused the Goblin to come out of him.

    It's facepaint. The "teeth" are over his lips. You can see his actual teeth in several shots. Paint stops around his forehead and you can see skin tone, too. The eyes are just them playing it up some more.
