    I read Batman Inc #8. First new comic I've bought in months. I tend to wait for a bunch of issues to hit the $1.99 price on Comixology rather than buying right away. Everything about it was great except one, small problem I had.

    My not MOTW was that my lcs was sold out of Batman Inc and I've thusfar avoided all spoilers. On top of that it's sold out online too, they never sell out. Must be good, will see on Tuesday when they get a batch in.

    It's also worth noting that Remender has said the next twenty four issues of Uncanny Avengers, while divided into different arcs, all feed into one mega-story.

    Dude specifically said that a lot of the time travel shit that is gonna pop up with Kang and Immortus and Rama-Tut won't be fully explained until issue 17.

    I think Uncanny Avengers is gonna be one of the best books at Marvel now that it's gotten its' foothold.

    Man, this was a great week in comics. Most everything so far has been good on both sides of the big two, as well as over in Masks.

    Also, Damien Wayne is a hero.

    I expect Clint to only make bad decisions, but this issue was impressive even by those standards. Favorite issue of the week but I was cringing the whole time.

    Like what the hell Clint? Of course Cap and Stark are pissed. What were you thinking.

    Avenging Spider-man was amazing this week, Yost has a great feel for Spock.

    Fairly lighthearted issue, with Ock being called by the FF for an important task.....

    I really like that it has an overarching plot and a consistent writer now, while still being a team-up book

    prefer human sized to transformer size myself and that's the best of his current redesigns i've seen. doesn't explain why there are currently 2 different sized versions running around (here and iron man) although i suppose it can be handwaved as he is fond of time travel.

  • Centipede DamascusCentipede Damascus ha ha just kidding I'm Frog ManRegistered User regular
    If I remember right, the smaller version of Death's Head is from the future, where he got smaller after a run in with Doctor Who.

  • manjimanji Registered User regular
    yeah, he runs into the 7th doctor at the end of i think target 2006 (transformers story), gets shrunk to human sized with the master's tissue decompression eliminator (no idea why the doctor has this) and then stranded in the far future to fight marvel UK mad max types the dragons claws for a bit. he does eventually get killed by deaths head 2 if you follow that timeline far enough (setting him up for a guest spot in shows up in capt britain and MI13)

    I love the pop art trippyness of this sequence featuring Loki rescuing Billy and Teddy from a dimensional prison that is essentially a bunch of comic panels.

    Avengers Arena #5 gives us some backstory on Kid Briton, a teenage Brian Braddock from another universe
    Spoiler:

    He's an asshole. And because his powers, like Captain Britain's, come from self-confidence, he feels this is a license to be a smug bully that cheats on his girlfriend.

    Basically, being a cocky dick gives him the strength to be an even cockier dick so basically he's invincible, right?
