Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #14 it finally happened, he got his webs! The book has really found it's footing pretty much as soon as Marquez came on.

    On Hawkeye #2... does Kate have a crush on Clint? Is that how that penultimate page was supposed to be read?

    Yeah? People have crushes on those older than them all the time.

    Nothing's going to happen, but I was wondering if that's the direction we were going here. Fangirl crush.

    Here's the page in question:

    For a second there I thought that guy in Hawkeye was supposed to be Swordsman and I was like "what the heck"

    But now I hope he shows up again. I want him to team up with Batroc for ultimate French mustache power.

    He trained under Swordsman like Hawkeye actually did!

    Green Lantern #0 i dunno about the way they introduced him, and the fact that we didnt really learn that much about Simon this issue, but neat ending.

    Oh man, Hawkeye is my moment, the whole thing. It's fabulous.

    Action Comics #0 was great through and through, this was the kind of issue that would belong in All-Star Superman.

    The Incognito deluxe hardcover that came out today is glorious. I'm glad I waited to read Incognito Vol. 2 until now - it's a beautiful collection with a bunch of cool extra features, much like the first Criminal hardcover.

    I'm sure Peter is lucky to have Max (and his whiskers) in his life, but maybe he shouldn't do that in front of his other role models. Captain Stacy especially doesn't seem to approve.

    After completely giving up on marvel comics a while ago, I picked up Hawkeye 1 and 2 on a whim (I see 2 already mentioned here).

    Damnit marvel

    Guess I'm back in

    Fuckin' love this book

    Plus he named his dog Lucky, which is what I named my dog as a kid

  • Centipede DamascusCentipede Damascus Registered User regular
    this is a good time for getting into Marvel

    the relaunches start next month and they're looking amazing

  • Man of the WavesMan of the Waves Registered User regular

    I had given up on new avengers and iron man a while ago and nothing x-related looked like it was going to turn around any time soon *shrug*

    Okay so I know I'm late to the party but KING CITY

    wow

    Definitely the best thing I've read in a while -- about halfway through

  • BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    Aight, stuff you missed out on that is really good:

    Uncanny X-Force
    Wolverine and the X-Men
    Hickman's Fantastic Four/FF
    Secret Warriors
    Journey into Mystery
    Generation Hope
    Defenders

    I stopped x-force when they went to Britain land even though I read excalibur as a tot. Up until then it was my #1 marvel. I don't care about fake nightcrawler at all.

    Wolverine and x-Men seemed decent enough but I had no motivation to keep going.

    Are you guys trolling me with gen hope and venom

    I will check the others at the funnies store this coming weekend. FF and such did nothing for me at a glance but I want to love marvel for nostalgia purposes and GV usually knows what is going on

    Also I just finished king city

    Mother of god

    What no

    Gen Hope is by Kieron Gillen who is super awesome and Venom is by Rick Remender from X-Force

    and man, you should really hope back on X-Force, Otherworld was a bit weird but it has been fantastic since then

    Venom is one of the series I look forward too most in my stacks, I love this take on Venom. It is very good, no trolling!

    King City is really, really good. And I hear/read great things about Prophet and hope I can buy the trade soon.

    If you liked King City then give Chew and Prophet a look

    Brandon Grahm is awesome, King City was just a surprisingly good book.

    I'd recommend Orc Stain and other stuff by James Stokoe if you like him. Him and Stokoe kind of share a similar storytelling and artistic bent, lots of background details, bits and pieces of story and all that.

    Take a moment to donate what you can to Critical Resistance and Black Lives Matter.

    It's very good! I just grabbed the trade a week or so back after reading it monthly.

    Also Orc Stain as mentioned above is pretty top-shelf. :3

    Make sure you get Multiple Warheads in October. That looks to be a ton of fun.

    Here's something from Thief of Thieves #8, which features the debut of James Asmus on the title. Though I still feel this comic is a shameless (and successful) attempt by Kirkman to sell AMC a new TV show, I have to admit, I really enjoy it.
    In the previous arc, master thief Conrad Redmond announced his retirement. But, when his son was arrested, and facing a lengthy prison sentence, Redmond called in all the favors available to him, indebting himself to numerous criminal associates, in order to get his son off the hook. Still, he can't work up the enthusiasm to return to his criminal ways.

    Until his ex-wife's husband, an antiquities dealer, publicly demeans and insults him. Suddenly, he's got the itch again.

    It's such a cliche to have the smooth ex-husband get one over on the sneering, spineless new beau, but it's always so satisfying. Plus, Martinbrough is still killing it on the art, and I'll always be a sucker for someone casually singing while they do something shady.

    Meanwhile, in Bloodstrike #30, the team is dispatched to Sudan, where someone has been killing rebels, as well as foreign aid workers. Arriving at the scene, Bloodstrike finds the party responsible; the Black Bride, and her Dead-Eyed Grooms, a former super-spy who uses mindless clones of her late husband, to complete contract killings.

    Despite my initial misgivings, I've really been digging this book. Tim Seeley's really established himself as a surprisingly versatile writer, and Francesco Gaston's art is the kind of cartoony ultraviolence, that I tend to enjoy.


  • TexiKenTexiKen Dammit! That fish really got me!Registered User regular
    I want to support Asmus, can I buy ToT #8 without needing to read the other issues?

  • MunchMunch Registered User regular
    You could follow the story, but I don't think you'd get much out of it, honestly.

    The first arc's by Nick Spencer, and pretty good. Plus, it's only nine dollars on Amazon.
