Ghost Rider, for giving me the biggest set of blue balls ever
And Punisher MAX for still being better than the Ennis run
And finally is the War Machine: Weapon Of SHIELD arc the lead-in to the title-change?
Because after flipping through it I want it to be true pretty badly

    My moment of the week: Amazon delivers! Brit vol 1, Invincible vol 1, and Atomic Robo vol 1.

    Whoops, should've put this here.

    Also, that spoiler was too tempting not to click. I am a huge sucker for moments like that, so I can't wait to see it for myself.

    Oh it is so fucking rad man it is so fucking rad
    Is the title changing from Iron Man to War Machine because I'll get it if it is
    But I have a hard time getting a book for just one arc because then I want to see what's next etc
    And next thing you know I've bought the book for three years and I'm like "this sucks why did I start this again"
    EDIT For the dude above me

    Not sure what I think of All-Star Superman yet. I need to read the whole series again from start to finish to see how I feel about the ending.

    Yeah, it was slightly abrupt in issue form, but I loved

    and the last page made me all misty and stuff. In strictly manly, hetero fashion, of course.

    Did anyone else get the Batman and the Outsiders RIP crossover issue?

    Was it just me, or did it seem like there was a plot gap somewhere? Obviously its a new writer and all that, but somehow the book just didn't gel with me. I sort of felt like we need another issue of Batman before this issue would make sense. I dunno. I didn't much like it.

    Although the ending was rather...huh?

    Well, it's post-RIP, and we don't know how RIP ends so, yeah, I imagine it is pretty confusing.

    Also, Dixon was kicked off and that dude who wrote Underground (awful) was shoved in, and I imagine that doesn't help.

    Secret Invasion: Thor #2 was overall pretty great, and Nick Fury was all sorts of badass in Mighty Avengers.

    It made me sad to open X-Factor and see the good art on the recap page, and then flip ahead and see Larry "Everyone Looks Like Ron Pearlman On Beauty and the Beast Except With a Huge Ass" Stroman was still pencilling it.

    Anyhow, some good stuff this week.

    In Atomic Robo, Robo has been tasked with assisting Allied troops during the 1943 invasion of Sicily. His mission? To destroy the Laufpanzers, Germany's so-called walking tanks. It could be going better.

    In Billy Batson and the Magic of Shazam, Theo Adam, one-time champion of the wizard Shazam, has returned to Earth. He's begun engaging in petty delinquency in an attempt to coerce Billy Batson to tell him the magic word that will unleash Black Adam.

    Really, Mike Kunkel's animation-influenced art is completely selling this book for me. All the little exaggerated faces and smooth transitions from one moment to another are just great. And it's only $2.25! If you're the kind of person that can enjoy all-ages books like Bone, there's no reason not to pick it up. And if you happen to be digging it, be sure to check out Kunkel's Herobear and the Kid.

    did you even read Valley Forge, Valley Forge?

  • Me Too!Me Too! __BANNED USERS regular

    I didn't like Valley Forge that much
    It was a nice way to wrap up the whole thing but I was very eh on it
    This is a very nice change of pace, still dark, still violent, but driven by more of a plot than say Mother Russia
    Mother Russia went
    Get into base
    Get out of base
    Frank fucks up the generals' plans
    THE END

    Yeah, for Ennis' final issue, I was hoping for a conclusion to Frank Castle's story rather than an end to an ongoing plotline.

    I suppose the decision to have the series continue on made that impossible, though.

    You should read his novels. His description of the biker house in Troubleshooter is fucking spectacular.

    He and another author who were announced as coming in after Ennis were authors I hadn't read. So as soon as I read about it, I checked out some of their books. Marvel picked some crazy awesome people to follow Ennis.

    Do you know how many dicks I'd suck for one issue of his Punisher?
    All of them
    The first issue of Moon Knight is one of my favorite issues ever, not counting the older stuff that I scrounge in second-hand places for
    Not a single word spoken out loud, all in Marc's head
    And that last page, of him kneeling in front of the statue, broken
    Damn

    You should go and read his prose stuff then. I actually found him first through his books and then continued with MK.

    Check out his website at pulpnoir.com He has a neat little story going on currently.
