Or so one would believe, given the lack of post.

Anyway, my moments of the week came from Ex Machina.
Spoiler:

Ice cold, Hundred.

Also, for those who're following Batman R.I.P., the recently awful Batman & the Outsiders dashed at least one popular theory about the Black Glove.

    Thunderbolts #126. Holy fuck. The spoilers therein:
    Spoiler:

    The writing was also spectacular. The art was ok.

    Fantastic Four was pretty good as well. I should have seen the hooded man's identity coming a mile away.

    What is this in response to? I didn't go to the comic shop today, but I didn't think a new Batman was out this week. . .

    I have got to stop reading Scalped. It tears me up inside every time I read it. It's so good, but goddamn it. It's just so ... argh.

    Ex Machina did that, too, but for totally different reasons.

    I was talking about the Hooded Man revelation. I haven't been reading any of Millar's stuff, but if that is who it is, and the poster was not joking... I'm not even going to consider reading the trades when they come around.

    This is just my oppinion but I'd say it's easily one of the top 5 books being published right now.

    It's a very compelling story with some of the most interesting characters I've read in years.



    Now, someone want to explain to me how Young X-Men was so awesome this month? Is the current creative team on the book for a while? The art was awesome and the writing (it's Guggenheim) actually reminded me of Fraction.

    My favorite part was them talking about busting the tattoo guys operation - which is in an abandoned paint ball arena:
    (paraphrased)
    Anole: Are we seriously busting up a criminal hideout that's in a paint ball field? What is this, an episode of Law and Order?
    Santos: "Dun-dun"

    You probably have to see the actual page but it made me laugh.

    Anti-moment of the week for me is Paul Jenkins coming to my comic shop yesterday and me MISSING IT. Funny thing is he actually bought the hardcover of Mythos which had his Cap one-shot in it because Marvel hadn't sent it to him yet.

    A friend loaned me the first three Trades last week, and I have to agree that it's top notch.

    I'm just repeating what I heard. I haven't been following Wolverine, FF, or 1985 at all, so I'm not exactly knowledgeable about what's been going on.

    According to Millar, the future Defenders in FF are from 450 years in the future of the Old Man Logan timeline. I was under the impression that almost all the heroes were killed in that timeline, so I wonder how the heck there can even be Defenders. And whatever happened to the failsafe Earth that was being constructed?

    I really need to go back and read these comics because right now it isn't making a lot of sense to me.

    Man, that's a lot of stuff. I get a strong feeling that Christos Gage is going to be tasked with either doing a What If? issue related to this timeline, or a mini detailing the cataclysm and events that lead up to Old Man Logan/Future Defenders.

    I think it's 8 more issues. Millar was originally only going to do a year, but I think they added 4 issues on.

    That was my guess too, though it's complicated by the fact that one would expect the President to be a public figure.
