Moment of the Week 1/23/08 - in which I have naughty thoughts about Ed Brubaker

So, yeah. I couldn't wait any longer for someone else to make this thread.

Anyway, I picked up my copy of Young Avengers Presents #1, and the whole damn thing is my moment of the week. There were two and a half points where I wanted to cry. But my favorite was the end:

Truly a great issue.

    Astonishing was good as always but nothing MotW. YA was awesome as I thought it would be. I haven't read the rest of my book yet (stupid work) but I think I'm going to have to go with

    The backup in She-Hulk is an early candidate, but I need more books first.

    I like my women how I like my coffee.

    Just finished Mice Templar #3, bad ass fight against The Many (though not as cool as their reveal at the end of 2). Definitely agree with Astonishing above. Good issue, but nothing stands out as the best moment.

    My real moment of the week might be reading the first Iron Fist trade. That is, if all of you haven't been lying. Report back on that after I finish.

    Of course not. It is just that awesome.

    Unfortunately, the next trade won't be out until May (I think). However, for your coming to the light I would suggest using this th_00618_ironfist_122_710lo.jpg

    Well, the current arc doesn't end until April. So, yeah. But it will also be huge (approx. 9 and a half issues long).

    Good luck finding the IIF singles. As I will always say for latecomers to Iron Fist, pick up Essential Iron Fist Vol. 1 and thank me later.

    Teen Titans #55 was just plain bad. The art was bad, and the story was terrible. None of the characters acted like themselves. And according to this interview, an upcoming storyline is the "Terror Titans"

    we just had an anti-titans group storyline. Just like we just had a Titans of the Future arc

    Like, damn, Sean McKeever. At least Geoff Johns brings back stuff a few decades old.

    Actually, we just had it Twice.

    Also, none of the enemies look particularly interesting.
    There's, of course, the Clock King. And then there's Disrupter; there's Dreadbolt, who is a teenage version of Bolt, even though Bolt is still around in Salvation Run; and then there's Persuader with the big old Atomic Axe; and then Copperhead. So that's the Terror Titans, and they launch a campaign against the Teen Titans for a reason I'm not going to say.

    Also, McKeever is apparently not mature enough to say "making out"

    It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it

    I'm glad I dropped Teen Titans a few arcs back. It's kind of sad that McKeever, who really made his name doing teen books, is flailing around so badly on Teen Titans.

    Also, more fucking legacy characters? Jesus, can someone make something new? I guess there's a different level to it this time at least, with villainous legacies to mirror the heroic teens' legacies, but I'm so tired of DC writers just recycling old shit.

    This was the best issue of Blue Beetle in a long time. Well, all of them are awesome, but this was more awesomerer.

    Also, "W.W.T.K.D.?". Someone needs to make a bumper sticker. That and "sweater nebulas".

    Blue Beetle was cool. Teen Titans was the suck. BTW, have the events in TT East been discussed in any of the other comics?

    Pixie shanking a chick was my moment of the week! I got one question about Messiah Complex though.....

    Man I really don't like the artist they have on Teen Titans. The art's not bad so much as none of the characters look like teenagers. Which is kind of important for a book about teenagers. Look at that Clock King. That's not a teenager. That's a 40-year-old.

    Thankfully the art in Teen Titans this month is a fill-in.

    I'm close to dropping it though.

    Pretty much all of X-Men 207 is my MOTW. Holy shit what a crossover.
