Gosh I like the Prophet series. I am enjoying the arc of it being one story with a definite end that is approaching.


Also I haven't been and to gin up interest in Iron Man recently but I am reading Cosmopolis and I keep thinking of Tony Stark.

If the limo in Cosmopolis were wearable, it would be iron Man's suit. Have there been good iron man stories about money recently?

On the other side of Sixth Avenue, the car moved slowly past the brokerage house on the corner. There were cubicles exposed at street level, men and women watching screens, and he felt the safety of their circumstance, the fastness, the involution of it, their curling embryonic ingrowth, secret and creaturely. He thought of the people who used to visit his website back in the days when he was forecasting stocks, when forecasting was pure power, when he’d tout a technology stock or bless an entire sector and automatically cause doublings in share price and the shifting of worldviews, when he was effectively making history, before history became monotonous and slobbering, yielding to his search for something purer, for techniques of charting that predicted the movements of money itself. He traded in currencies from every sort of territorial entity, modern democratic nations and dusty sultanates, paranoid people’s republics, hellhole rebel states run by stoned boys. He found beauty and precision here, hidden rhythms in the fluctuations of a given currency.

    Oh my lawd Primus,
    Shockwave and Dreadwing: LOGIC BOMBERS vs. Wheeljack and Starscream: ROGUE SCIENCE should be a thing.

    Like, Dark Cybertron should end in a tag team bout between the four of them.

    Drift can come back to Cybertron and play the devious Mr. Fuji Asian stereotype manager, because fuck you, Drift.

    Batman Beyond #1 was an enjoyable read with a twist ending that has me willing to give it another ish.

    Superior Spider-Man was great as always (so says the guy who isn't a Spidey fan, usually).

    Plus the art of Humberto Ramos is always a pleasure to look at, especially on Spidey books.
    Loving this utter breakdown of Hobgoblin, and Spock's whole take on super-villain organization and mannerisms being bent towards heroism.
