    Did Captain Marvel just do a Kamehame ha?
    What's Doc Brasher's deal? I haven't read the issue, but I know supposedly Ronin was going to be revealed wondering if
    After the reveal got spoiled way way back, they pulled an audible and have someone other than Blade under the mask

    And I don't have scans, but all of Deadpool #27 was great. In the main story, Deadpool gets a happy ending and there's a nice moment where he comments on how even he's usually surrounded by people, he's not surrounded by friends, so this felt nice to him.

    And all the backup stories are fun. Joe Kelly's and Gail Simone's being my favorite.

    If you don't mind hyper-violence, definitely check out Tradd Moore's creator-owned work, The Strange Talent of Luther Strode, and The Legend of Luther Strode.

    The first book's a bit of a downer, but the second sort of twists the concept of the character, and brings the series to a more positive place.

    Actually, people should check out the writer of Ghost Rider's other work, too. MBQ and Peepo Choo are fantastic.

    I'm late putting these up, but what the hey.

    What If: Age of Ultron #2: Tony Stark is dead, and the Armor Wars have killed many of Earth's heroes.

    After failing to recruit the Hulk, who's now a pacifist Buddhist monk, Wolverine stops off at an old friend's house. Emphasis on old.

    Later, they storm the Savage Land, where Stane Industries have planted a Master Mold, which now manufactures bootleg Iron Man tech.


    This was a super fun, stand-alone issue. Ramon Villalobos kills it on his big, debut comic, James Stokoe's cover is gorgeous, and Joe Keatinge does a really nice job of establishing a fairly large cast, and setting up a problem to be solved, in a single issue. The pages are all super-dense in terms of panel count, but they never seem overstuffed with expository dialogue. And there's a couple of neat comics tricks, like using an all-black panel to represent a moment when Wolverine blacks out, after getting shot through the neck.

    If anyone wants my digital code for the issue, just post in here, and I'll PM it to you.

    Shutter #1; Kate Kristopher was raised to be the world's greatest explorer, and was, until she didn't want to be, anymore.

    This was another really fun, kinda weird book, from Keatinge. The first issue introduces us to Kate, primarily through showing us how she interacts with the outside world. Again, there's not a bunch of heavy-handed exposition, which I'm a fan of. Oh, also, she fights ghost ninjas, and a lightning-breathing robot with a moustache shows up at the end.

    My only complaint, is that it feels a little light on content. There are three beautiful two-page spreads, courtesy of artist Leila Del Duca, and colorist Owen Gieni, that didn't exactly need to be there. Again, they're beautiful pages, but they're also 28% of the book.

    That said, having five pages of bonus comics and a pin-up in the back, sort of makes up for it.

    I'm gonna say it, the What If? miniseries have been pretty crap up to now, but I actually like the Age of Ultron series. It was kinda like people remembered that What Ifs were about going outside the box. Heck, I didn't even like Age of Ultron and I liked this series.

    That What If? thing looks incredible! I love Villalobos! He makes the best costumes.
