I hate that I care about what happens to the characters in Saga.

Captain America #4 was amazing as well.

    I think JKyle is referring to this from Saga #10, best character sad time:

    Avengers #6, Captain Universe's origin, Superior Spider-Man can't be bothered with kids or illegal aliens, and your very own decoder for space builder gibberish:

    Regarding Saga:
    Notice that the ship's silhouette looks like a heart being torn apart?

    Indestructible Hulk #4, it brings even more sadness than Saga did. Second best NOW book behind Avengers:

    indestructiblehulk4b_zps648c9d46.jpg

    indestructiblehulk4c_zps1268ef52.jpg

    ROB 3.0 might last the whole issue instead of 1 page and 5 pages, respectively.

    Superior Spider-Man #4. I really liked this scene
    superior%204_1.jpg

    superior%204_2.jpg

    Also, final page reveal
    superior%204_3.jpg

    Didn't care for the Massacre stuff, but the above pages are awesome
    Camuncoli's art is much better now

    Re: Saga
    I take heart in the fact that just last issue The Will was talking about how hard Lying Cat was to kill.

    Or maybe he was talking about how he couldn't bring himself to kill her. But I'm hoping for the former.

    Technically it'd be Rob 7.0 (hulk mentions breaking the previous five plus the current)

    To balance out the epic sadness that is the new issue of Saga, a moment of happy/awesome from Batwoman #17:

    (perhaps somewhat spoiler-tastic happy/awesome, being a final page of a story arc and all)
    Alternate title: DC Presents: Batwoman Vs. Orson Scott Card.

    It was one hell of a way to end a 17 issue super long arc, after the Batwoman + Wonder Woman asskicking. :D

    Red Hood 17 was interesting for a DotF aftermath
    So everyone ends up showing back up at the mansion eventually after ditching him in Batman 17. Except Batgirl. Confirmation that Nightwing and Starfire DID have a relationship (Not sure if thats been brought up in RH yet, havent been reading it), and Joker DID put some acid or something in Red Hoods mask, which triggered after he put it on again.

    It was mentioned that Dick and Starfire used to be together. She eve has a couple of his own uniforms.

    And Dick didn't ditch Bruce in Batman 17. He was calling to say he arrived at the manor gate and Bruce assumed otherwise after everyone else flaked.

    Kinda hate that last bit.
    The whole message of DotF was fucking with the Bat-Family without actually disfiguring or maiming them. Hence the whole fake-out with the faces.

    Scarring/melting Jason's face goes against that and is also super dumb.

    I don't think
    There'll be physical scarring, it seemed more just reddish, from a close contact chemical spray, not a permanent thing. But I think he got mindwiped.

    Oh and I just checked to see when vol 2 comes out and amazon has volume 1 for $5.55, perfect forcing on your friends pricing.

    Its kind of sad that the majority of DC's storylines revolve around this pseudo-Watchmen "We must police our heroes" nonsense.

    If you're not reading JL8 you are missing out on something beautiful.
    Read it from the beginning. he does an excellent job of translating the personas into grade school

    The interaction between the heroes and villians on the school yard was sad and fun at the same time

    Did Uncanny X-Force #2 come out this week or not? I certainly didn't see it at my LCS, and it should have been in my pull anyway. Marvel's website has it as a 2/20/13 release though. Did it get delayed, or did I just miss it this week?

    So, this weeks moments

    Saga was awesome. Obviously.

    Nova #1 was... not so bad. It was okay. The art was lovely, Sam is an engaging character and though the continuity and so on is fucked as we know, I did like the raw elements of the story, a dead beat dad lost in his glory days, a kid who has to take responsibility to live up to it, and a family that loves each other but has it's own struggles. I thought that was cool. So I will keep reading, because I want to find out what happens to Sam. Also, Gamora has her old costume. I'm a terrible, awful person, yes, but I like that costume far, far more than her new terrible one. So that's cool.

    Thor: God of Thunder was fantastic and I love how huge and epic it feels. The reveal of what happened in the cave was actually interesting and added a new element to Gorr. Really loving this book, one of the best of Marvel NOW, in part because of how great the art is.

    Wonder Woman is one of the very few DC books I am still reading, and for good reason. Nothing to say that hasn't been said before, though the art is not by Chiang this issue which is a shame, as he was one of the best things about the new series.

    X-O Manowar! Woo! I have been loving this series, and I also picked up the first trade of Harbinger which I thought was pretty cool as well. Valiant's restart is doing very well and I hope it continues to do so.
