    Can someone just confirm the end of Dark Avengers form e?
    So is Loki orchestrating events to make Osborn lose it? Or is he directly influencing Osborn to lose it? Either way, as insane as he is, how is Osborn not realising this?

    And Sentry is gonna die permanently soon, someone who can waste the Molecule Man and apaprently make the Scarlet Witch seem like nothing is beyond too powerful to have around.
    I just wantto know who Osborne's ultimate weapon is if it's not Sentry?

    Dark Wolverine #81: You know, if you'd told me that Moonstone would be getting her best character development in a book written by Daniel Way, I'd have called you a liar. And then possibly struck you. Most of the credit can probably be given to Marjorie Liu, who I believe is actually writing the full scripts from Way's plot outlines. I'd planned to drop this book, not because it was bad, but just because it wasn't something I felt the need to read every month. But then they brought Camuncoli back in to draw it. I really liked the dude's work on the Captain Atom mini-series from a few years back, and he's gotten exponentially better since then.
    Daken has just told Moonstone a heartwarming tale about how, as a child, he was sent to assassinate a defenseless, elderly woman. Impressed by her stoic calm and quiet dignity, he left her unharmed.

    The next page shows what Daken really did to the old woman.

    This page actually startled me a little when I flipped to it. After looking very controlled and blase throughout the entire issue, Daken's face just twists up into this freaky snarl out of nowhere.

    X-Factor #200: Just a little one page gag I quite enjoyed.

    I know PAD had been getting bugged by readers for a long time to re-introduce the Siryn/Deadpool romance. I thought this was a nice way of throwing them a bone, without lingering on it for too long.

    Doctor Voodoo #3: I have to say, though I'm loving the visual aesthetic of this book, the magic, and the characters, something about it just isn't clicking for me. Maybe it's because, three issues in, Jericho Drumm has yet to prove why he should be the Sorcerer Supreme, as he seems to spend most of his time getting his face kicked in, and being ineffectual. I'm sure that'll be remedied by the end of the arc, but for now it's a bit frustrating watching the hero fail at every turn.
    Also? This book makes a great case for Doom to become the Sorcerer Supreme, as he actually does stuff. Plus, Remender writes him really well.

    Silver Streak Comics #24, which is part of Image's Next Issue Project wherein public domain comics are restarted from the point at which they were cancelled, came out this week. While the talent line-up isn't as impressive as that of the previously released Fantastic Comics, this issue still has Paul Grist and Erik Larsen drawing the Golden Age Daredevil and Silver Streak, and the entire thing is done in an oversized format, on paper that's sort of like matte cardstock. I'm honestly not sure if I'd recommend it, as three of the five features weren't all that great. But if you're looking for a little something different, and have four bucks to spare, you might like it.

    Aside from Larsen and Grist's entertaining contributions, I think the best part of the book was the hilarious retro style advertisements.

    Fantastic.

    Incorruptible #1 was alright, but started quite slow, and if Irredeemable's anything to go by, it's going to take a few issues to really get going.While nothing stands out as Moment of the Week material, I have to say that Mark Waid making his anti-hero protagonist a pretty flagrant statutory rapist is pretty ballsy. Comic readers are often asked to sympathize with heroic killers or thieves, but I don't think a writer's ever put a sexual predator in the role of the hero, and asked the reader to root for them.

    Seeing that makes me happy, if for no other reason that he tries to be just a little bit better a person when he's around her.

    It always strikes me as odd when I see a creator's name written differently than I'm used to seeing it. I mean, Michael Mignola?

    On a semi-related note, I just found out that Matt Fraction's real name is Matt Fritchman.

    How weird is that?

    If you're going to change your name do it like Gene Simmons.

    Stan Lee and Jack Kirby did the same thing.

    Are we sure she's dead? Alright, yes, she's had an arm torn off and shoved down her throat and is being swung around by her neck, but she took some brutal hits when they first brought her down and she recovered.

    The only way that crazy bitch is getting back up is with a Black Ring around her finger.

    If you can't beat them, arrange to have them beaten in your presence.
