    I love the cowl with one lens missing. Somehow that one detail lets you know "Batman's been through some shit."

    Venom #13.2, Venom and Red Hulk have been really awesome and work well together, the other two have been kinda eh so far, but love the play between Rulk and Venom.
    Spoiler:

    Amazing Spider-Man 679.1 was a pretty good .1 issue I guess. Had to lol at Utau making all these anti monster things.
    Spoiler:

    Ultimate Comics X-Men #7 proves that Spencer is creating a long haul storyline similar to morning glories, I really enjoyed the motif of Pietro running through the pages earlier in the issue, and this is the "shocking" spoilerific ending to the issue.

    Batman #6, a cleaned up version of Arivia's choice of the week, as it really is a good moment. Capullo goes funky with his art
    Spoiler:

    Daredevil #8, nice journey into Mole Man's world, lots of black and darkness
    Spoiler:

    Generation Hope #16, Lovely Miyazawa art, and a nice moment between Pixie and Velocidad
    Spoiler:

    Thunderbolts #170 has an interesting take on Camelot, but the best part was the end because we see the greatest team ever appear!
    Spoiler:

    And Gredavin's Peter Panzerfaust #1 debuts nicely, although it really does end on the weirdest note with nothing saying it's the end of the issue. It's very much a Fables-like story with Peter Pan and the new Lost Boys during WWII

    Yeah

    that sounds pretty great

    Man I love how New Avengers is basically "Iron Fist rules: the comic"

    right thread, this time
    more than meets the eye #2 was fantastic

    it's a really great team book that manages comedy and tragedy with skill

    Whirl and Cyclonus confronting each other on the Lost Light after their fight in issue one was awesome

  • Caveman PawsCaveman Paws Registered User regular
    Batman #6: Loved the artwork. Every issue so far has been pure eye sex.

    Disappointed in the stale "hero gets beaten almost to death, he then gets mad and begins mopping the floor with the not injured at all bad guy" angle. A minor quibble in an otherwise solid issue (too short!).

    Looking forward to More than Meets the Eye #2!

    Captain Atom was really good this month! Especially so, I thought.

  • OwenashiOwenashi Registered User regular
    I thought this was a pretty sweet spread from today's issue of the Star Trek/Legion Of Super-Heroes crossover.

    That is awesome. I recognize:

    • The time machine from H.G. Wells' The Time Machine
    • The DeLorean from Back to the Future
    • (I think) the time capsule Matt Frewer showed up in in that one episode of The Next Generation
    • A Stargate from Stargate
    • The hot tub time machine from Hot Tub Time Machine
    • The T.A.R.D.I.S. from Doctor Who
    • The phone booth from Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure

    EDIT: And is that the dagger from Prince of Persia?

    He should have said "I don't give a hoot" and then he puts his bat-eye lens back on.

    this

    this is true

    I have been quickly converted to the Holy Church of Danny Rand, just in time to see it go up in flames

    Say what you will about Shadowland but Diggle giving Danny the kill shot at the end was a good move.

  • AriviaArivia Registered User
    shadowland was terrible because it made the spines on my Thunderbolts trades not match

    huntresssig.jpg
  • wirehead26wirehead26 Registered User regular
    I was about to ask if Diggle has done anything for Marvel since Shadowland but then I read he did the Six Guns book. Kind of a shame Shadowland was so poorly received since Diggle did pretty well on Thunderbolts, plus he wrote a damn good Punisher Max one-shot back in 2006.

  • HenslerHensler Registered User regular
    I read the first issue of Six Guns at the shop - it looks like a really good take on the Marvel Western set in the modern world. I'm waiting for the trade to read the rest of the story, though. For good Diggle, find some copies of the Losers or his Hellblazer stories.

    YES

    I just couldn't get into Diggle's Losers story.

    Winter Soldier #2. It's everything I wanted out of this comic and more.

    Also the store I work at is helping out with a convention that's being put on by local guys. We got Larry Hama coming. I'm so happy.

    NOT WORK SAFE

    James Stokoe art makes my week. His Orc Stain pages are amazing as always, despite or perhaps because of his insistence of including bongs made out of orc and dino bones. And his Spider-Nam thing is incredible.

    Just read Scarlet Spider #1 thanks to Comixology and it wasn't bad. The new costume suffers from a lack of blue hoody but it works.

    Curious to see if they can make this something worth following or if it crashes and burns (anti-hero spider-man isn't my thing but I'm willing to wait and see).
