    I would assume since it was their own government they knew she did and had some kind of jammer or something to prevent it?

    The end of Mighty Thor #12 has just about the best "FUCK YEAH!" moment in comics so far this year. Fraction just redeemed the entire Fear Itself story with that one issue.

    that was my first thought except for the leaping into someone elses body. So I went with my #2 answer.

    Thor #12

    eh

    I didn't hate it or love it
    it was nice that Bill and Kelda got a happy ending, but it did feel a bit like "there that is done now"

    as if Fraction didn't really care too much about that sub-plot

    Felt like there was more potential behind that ongoing plot

    and basically in this issue everything ended and that's about it. The heroes beat up the baddies and won.

    Which is perfectly acceptable but it was nothing really that good

    Avenging Spider-man #5, The Bro-mance you never knew you wanted! ( And I want it so bad now!)

    Cap and Spidey!

    But in the end the power of Nerd Bromance wins out!

    This is one of my new favorite done in ones in a long time, this was just a really fun light hearted story , with a few tugs on the hearstrings throw in. I ended up grabbing panels instead of full pages for these, cause I could not pick just one part! ( and this is just a small sample, the entire issue was just really fun)

    Aw, that's pretty cute. Yeah, more needs to be done with small-scale story beats between friends like that. Works better in serial than writing a romance.

    Edit: Plus, if it's two guys Scans_Daily will write a thousand romances for you before it even gets published.

    I think it was less the Artist part and more the Comic part of " Comic artist" that gets the nerd attachment :D

    He didn't

    she died and went to Valhalla

    which was, eh

    it felt rushed and not very good and I wish that Fraction would drop this title and give it back to Gillen who wrote it with so much more gravitas and dramatic flair.

    Uncanny X-Force #23, *cue 360 degree camera pane* shit just got real:

    The Goat is Jamie from the future, possessed and traveling back in time when Merlyn wasn't around, Betsy tells Brian what has to be done:

    X-Men Legacy #264, a question is brought up by the more visibly changed students that makes me wonder if Ben Grimm has the same problem:

    I think that Rockslide could build himself some junk if he wanted to.

    And if he builds it... they will come.

    Ha! Very good teacher-talk dialog.

    Also Rockslide is great.

    There was a pretty great Clark moment in Superman 7. If I had a scanner, I'd go for it.

    Maybe I will have to download a scan app on my new android phone. Wooo.

    That Cap is a comic book artist is such a great part of his character

  • FuruFuru Registered User regular
    He can make body parts

    also he can grow but Gage had him magically discover how to do that thing he already knew how to do because Rogue told him

  • JaythreefJaythreef Registered User regular
    I wish I had a scan of the page from Ultimates where Thor reacts to Jarvis talking about The Bachelorette. It was the best. Maybe I'll try to take a phone picture of it later.

  • SolarSolar Registered User regular
    Okay

    well it is sad that Christos has ignored/is unaware of that

    like, honestly it is because I like it when writers are aware of continuity and consistency

    he's still a good writer though and I like most of his work, including this

    so I will continue to read and enjoy it

    I found that exchange really confusing. I'm glad it was brought up. He's all jolly Thor in the previous panel then dead serious all of the sudden. I didn't get it at all.

  • BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    He is putting up a front.

    Dude wants to seem like he is the same amiable Thor as always, but the world is kinda fucked so he is anything but. Tony's really the only one who knows that.

    Also Avenging Spider-Man was so damn good. I really want Wells to write an Avengers book, as he is nailing everyone's voice. Especially Hawkeye.

    I can't wait to get Avenging SM in trade format. 3 Joey Mad issues and a Yu issue? Even the Land issue looked competent in the previews.

    Yu was at the top of his game as well, best work I've seen out of him in a while.

    Solar, you and me? We're like this.
    I am, by-and-large, not a huge fan of issues where a lot of mega-action is happening, and most of the text is coming from some third party, or from someone in a later point in time, describing what's happening. It feels a bit redundant. Like, I don't even need to look at the pretty pictures, I can just read the text and see what happened. So, from a technical point of view, I was a little disappointed.

    The way everything was ultra-hurried also annoyed me. It felt like Fraction was spinning out this tale, and then at some point went "oh shits, I have to wrap it all up in one issue! OK, uh, rock falls, everybody dies!". He was taking a very long time to build up the plot with the troll/Norn alliance, and then the whole thing went off as a pretty generic bang in this issue, just a big ol' battle that was pretty unremarkable (I thought). I wanted to see the payoff over a longer period of time. I really liked seeing Ulik as Tanarus, a sort of brute-Thor. I really would have liked that storyline to go on longer.

    I'll stop before I venture too far into bitching territory.
