Venom #19 really enjoy the dialogue between Jack and Flash. Also the obligatory "bridge" scene.

    Daredevil #14, what a way to spend a vacation Matt:

    That gas actually had nanites in it that are taking away Matt's senses, which bite him on the butt as he tries to cross the Latverian border:

    I wish they didn't have to deal with the whole Avengers vs. X-Men thing. The conflict in this issue seems really contrived.
    So Emma, with the infinite powers of the Phoenix, can't remove that one part of the sentinel's programming? Then how about she just get rid of the sentinel's mutant sensors and prevent it from repairing it? How about she just take out all of the Sentinel's weapons or move the AI to a different body?

    Despite all that nonsense, Emma has been pretty reasonable. She's at least taken the time to negotiate and try to come up with a compromise when she could have just made everyone fall asleep and melted the sentinel without interference.

    Due to Genosha Emma has a certain hatred of Sentinels, hence her reply. It's almost amazing she didn't just vaporize it. She's been shown to have a hatred of all things that allowed the genocide to happen there.

    Saga #4 is just my kind of crazy. I love this weird, sci-fi world that Vaughan and Staples are building.

    Grim Leaper #2; every time Lou Collins dies, he's reborn again, inside the body of another person, only to be condemned to a gruesome death, shortly thereafter. Believing this curse is specific to him, he's pretty morose about the whole thing, until he meets Ella, a girl who suffers from the same affliction.
    SZLnV.jpg

    I'm really enjoying this book, so far. It's probably the strongest thing I've read from Kurtis Wiebe, hitting a great balance of humor, horror, and action, with it all tied together by a strong concept. I'm genuinely curious about where it's going, as this issue set up an interesting conflict, between Ella and Lou, that I'd like to see expanded upon.

    Santos' art is great, too. It reminds me of a creepier Jason Howard.

    Glory #27; the remote village of Mont St. Michel is set upon by demons, from the armies of Glory's father. She and her allies band together, in order to protect the town, and make good their escape. Unfortunately, Glory has a tendency to Hulk out, under stress.
    s63TR.jpg

    A few issues into the reboot, and we finally get the big, action smackdown I've been waiting for. Campbell draws an array of cool, weird monsters (shark in a jetpack, anyone?), and makes the battle feel chaotic, without sacrificing any clarity of story.

    Additionally, between this and Hell Yeah, Keatinge is showing a real talent for setting up last-page teasers. Too many issues just, end. Keatinge's issues end, and make sure you want to return next month.

    X-Factor #238; having consulted with Reverend Maddox last issue, Rahne sets out to find her missing, demonic offspring, with Shatterstar and Rictor in tow. Meanwhile, Siryn and Havok investigate a series of deaths that seem sonic in origin, and Guido and Madrox discuss the finer points of resurrection.
    4KZWJ.jpg

    After last issue's cool-down, Peter David immediately begins ramping the action in this installment, with a new murder mystery, some interpersonal strife, and new plotlines to be explored. His voices for these characters have, over the course of 80+ issues, been honed to perfection, ensuring plenty of cute character moments that feel entirely natural, while still unexpected.

    Paul Davidson does a really nice job with the art, too, carefully straddling the line between superheroics and noir, which this book lives on. Additionally, it's nice to see one of the guys from Breaking Into Comics the Marvel Way, getting work.

    I also want to commend Rachelle Rosenberg's colors, here. The soft, rendered colors bring to mind Frank Martin, and really serve as a nice compliment to Davidson's lineart.

    Dark Avengers #176; the time-lost Thunderbolts arrive at the dawn of man, witnessing the seeding of superhuman abilities by the Celestials, the near-death of a fellow time-traveler, and the return of a Thunderbolt thought dead.
    oG02F.jpg

    Using this issue to tie into a years-old event seems a bit odd, but Parker's never been one to play it safe or reasonable. I'm really just repeating myself at this point, but I so greatly enjoy this book. The character moments, the dialogue, the plot, it's all on point, and I want to see where it's leading.

    I know the time-travel arc lost a lot of people, but I'm still enjoying seeing these characters with wildly different personalities try to convalesce as a team, free of any supervision.

    Additionally, Kev Walker and Frank Martin's art remains wonderfully exaggerated and expressive.

    Punisher #12; Frank finally has a heart-to-heart with Alves, trying to make his point, in his own, unique way.
    dvFT4.jpg

    I wasn't in love with this issue, but Rucka did do a nice job of counterbalancing the dry, melodramatic nature of Frank's speech at the end, with a humorous scene at the beginning, featuring Norah Winters and Phil Urich.

    I feel like this is a book that I have to read between the lines on, and not just accept what's on the page. Like, looking at Frank speaking to Rachel, I really get the feeling he wants her to quit. He's showing her just how crazy, lonely, and broken you have to be in order to do what he does, and hoping that she'll blink. Unfortunately, she doesn't. She only redoubles her commitment, literally burning the last connection she had to her old life.

    Checchetto's art is still fabulous, sort of a Euro-Manga style that's hard to pin down, but a pleasure to look at. Matt Hollingsworth's color palette of cool blues and greens, with splashes of warm color here and there, really helps sell the noir tone of the book.

    If you enjoyed Gotham Central, maybe check this book out. It's basically that, but a gun-toting Batman shows up a little more often.

    I like it, but think it has the potential to go bad in a hurry.
    The idea that he can speak, but everyone hears him differently, means there's really no way to write him wrong. He can be whatever a writer needs him to be. I think that's pretty cool.

    But, I do think giving him the ability to speak, removes that distanced, alien intelligence that has long defined the character. I don't think it really has to change him much, though. Just because he can talk, doesn't mean he'll necessarily want to.

    I'm guessing the Avengers Academy conflict will be resolved when
    The sentinel tells everyone to back off and allows itself to be destroyed by Emma because it realized that it is the cause of the conflict and that Juston has been put in danger as a result. Emma realizes that it is a sentient being and either spares it or offers some other compromise that lets it keep its mind.

    Academy ends it's crossover with AvsX next issue so whatever happens will be pretty quick.

    In fact, Secret just ended it's crossover issues as well so the only series left are Avengers, New, Uncanny, Legacy, WatXmen, and Vs.

    I am so in love with comic books in general right now, in a way I haven't been since... 1996ish? I have total joy grabbing my pull list from the LCS each week, and it just seems like a great time for the industry. A huge number of great books in a bunch of great genres, a really promising new wave of creators, and some of the best stuff I've ever seen from non "Big Two" publishers. I can't narrow down a single MotW most weeks now, whereas it wasn't too long ago where I couldn't find a single moment that would qualify most weeks. :) !

    So if Emma has Phoenix powers,
    and the Phoenix Force came to Earth to undo "No more mutants,"
    why not have Emma give Juston mutant powers and use that as a way to have the Sentinel paradox away its least important directive?

    Oddly enough the X-Men have at times frowned at the whole no mutant team members, if any are around they tend to get kicked out soon enough. Wasn't Dani Moonstone fired when she like many mutants lost her powers on M Day. Kinda cold. Hell at times it seems the X-Men motto should be "You have to get along with us, but we don't necessary have to get along with you."

    If that was the case then it certainly isn't the case now. I think we can attribute the early mentality to the shock the X-Men underwent after M-Day, but things have evened out since then again (somewhat). They're on good terms with vampire Jubilee, and regular-human Dani Moonstar leads the New Mutants team in San Fransisco.

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