    I see Deadpool Team-Up has a vol.1 out in HC, how many of those issues are worth picking up the book for?


    Chris G's Guardian Gags backup, classic

    And Superman/Batman #75 is mixed. The main Levitz/Ordway story is too much about the Legion (they feel overused more than Deadpool does at the moment), but the two page stories are really good, save for Dave Finch's, like this excellent Krypto vs. Ace story and a happy epilogue to the Little JLA arc:

    Ehhhh. Much as I like Deadpool Team-Up, I don't think I'd want to own a TPB of it. It's fun because, due to its done-in-one nature, every month I get to see who the creators are, the co-starring character, and the plot, and then decide if I want to buy it. I don't think I'd want to pay for a Frank Tieri story about Mister X and Deadpool you know?

    If you really want to check it out, buy the Captain Britain issue. That one was great. And next month Deadpool's teaming up with Gorilla Man, in a Jeff Parker-written issue, and then later, he's fighting the Thing in a wrestling cage-match, in a story drawn by Tom Fowler. So those should both be awesome.

    So basically Captain Britain and the Machine Man issues are good, as is hopefully the next issue by Parker?

    I'll just pick them up the week after your thumbs up or down verdict. I kind of like picking up a DP title but quit buying the main series because it's been below average for a while.

    edit: Krypto was in the Action Comics backup, so I had to buy it. Krypto is such a good dog:

    And a nice moment in X-Men Legacy, Carey gives a nice sinister Magneto moment and Rogue responds in the best way possible:

    Pretty much. The only issues of Deadpool Team-Up that I own are the ones that made me say, "Oh, [creator X] or [character Y] + Deadpool? That should be awesome!" Sometimes it is, sometimes not so much. The Deadpool and U.S. 1 team-up was a lot less fun than it should have been. But the Ghost Riders and Zapata Brothers issues were actually better than I thought they'd be.

    It took awhile to get through this weeks list of comics but I would say my moment of the week was during the conclusion of Astonishing X-Men's latest story arc.

    Here was a nice moment from JLA #48:

    I think Wildcat II is right.

    The whole Starheart arc ended so-so but you get certain moments that are fun. The constant dialogue box switches is kind of getting annoying when 6 different people are doing it on the page though,

    Science Dog #1 is a fun, Silver Age-y superhero tale. Not really a whole lot going on, but it's a good little one-issue origin story, with some giant robots and aliens thrown in for good measure.

    Secret Warriors #19 wraps up The Last Ride of the Howling Commandos, and lives up to its name.
    Gabriel Jones' last stand.
    2v3k87q.jpg

    X-Factor #208 has a guest appearance by Pip the Troll, which automatically makes it better than most books out this week. Also, I'm continually struck by how good this series has been since the reboot with #200. It's really doing the superhero noir thing well.

    Rahne lies to Rictor, telling him he's the father of her child. In truth, she got knocked up by some Asgardian wolf-God. I really, really love that shot of Rahne's eyes, and Layla looking back at her. The artist totally sells it.

    Guarding the Globe #1 was a lot of setup, but I really liked these pages. They really say a lot about the characters, without having to be overly blunt.

    Secret Warriors was great, still at the high standard which it ahs always maintained. Avengers was OK, but I can't help but feel that Bendis very often shelves what would have been an interesting combat in the name of progression. I mean, Wolverine was knocked out by a single throw of Cap's shield, and while I'm all for powers being plot based given from what we've seen of the character previously it just sits rather uneasily.

    However Thor #613? Fucking metal. Gillen is really pulling out all the stops for his last arc, the artwork has improved greatly since the latest guy started on it, and the whole thing is very gripping, very powerful, and very mythological.

    Also Heroic Age, Prince of Power. A lot of very good characterisation and action, great art, still funny, good conclusions to the arc and a nice set-up of things to come. Thor was taken down rather easily, but given the previous comparison he himself made the irony of it is great.

    So yeah, my MotW is Heroic Age: Prince of Power.

    I am weeks behind on my books, but I am just going to say that I liked Superman: Secret Origins 6 just for wrapping things up pretty nicely and outdoing JMS by really understanding the character and what he stands for.

    Although I am still upset by that massive, intense delay.

    I'm currently in the process of getting caught up on semi-old Daredevil issues. One of my LCS has the two Bendis and Brubaker omnibuses and I have heard nothing but good things about those runs. I just finished issue 74 in Volume II and I'm not sure if people remember the issue at all but a church group just had a bit of a gathering to discuss how Daredevil has impacted their lives. There's this one guy though that has been pretty cryptic on why he's there and near the end of the issue is letting on that he know's alot about Daredevil and the teachings that made him this uber ninja. It comes to the point that this guys essentially points him out in the room.

    And bam, Matt Murdock has been there the entire time. Blew my mind.

    Well, I jumped on during the end of Brubaker's run during the Return of the King story arc. I'm really digging what Diggle has done with Matt and making him the leader of The Hand. It's like Diggle took it a step further when Bendis had Matt claim that he was the Kingpin of Hell's Kitchen.

    I'd recommend picking up the Bendis DD ultimate collections. The second one comes out in September and the last in November. You can get them all for 23 dollars on Amazon which is a fantastic deal.

    The first Kevin Smith story which started the whole thing should still be readily available online or even at comic shops. The second David Mack volume which bridges the gap between Smith and Bendis might be a bit harder to find but worth it. Finally the Brubaker stuff you can get in two mini-omnibuses but if you already have the Return of the King volume you might just want to get his previous 6 volumes. This might sound like a big investment but it's so worth it.
