    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    Thor was pretty great, but Welcome to Tranquility really kicked ass this week.

    Groo 25th Anniversary Special 1st page.
    Sergio and Mark are talking to each other in Mark's office:

    Sergio: Mark! Am so excited we do new Groo comics! Why we not do any for long while?

    Mark: Some of us have real jobs.

    Sergio: Even better is this is another number one issue! This got to be number one number twenty or thirty!

    Mark: How do you figure that?

    Sergio: Number one number one published by Pacific Comics before they go out of business! Then number one number two from Eclipse Comics before they go out of business! Then Groo number one number three from Epic comics, and it take a long time for us to ruin Epic Comics! It take TEN YEARS! Then number one number four come from Image Comics! They still in business?

    Mark: Yes.

    Sergio: Well, give it time!

    Well, like Thor said, he never took it to the limit before. Iron Man is pretty fucking powerful now, and he sort of continually gets better as he makes modifications to the suit. Plus, you know, he actually has superpowers of his own now without the suit, and both of those combined make him rather hardcore.

    Just not thunder god hardcore, apparently.

    So yeah, Thor was holyshit awesome, Nova 6 was the saddest thing ever, Search for Ray Palmer was neat, and Daredevil was intense.

    Id go with Nova I suppose. Return of Drax and the ending with Ko-Rel was just too good for me.

    Thor fight was awesome, but JMS's writing was terrible for everything else. Completely vilifies Tony and turns him into a government strawman that just tows the line compared to all his other appearances and general stance on registration. This is nothing like the man that JMS, just last week, wrote as helping out his friend Peter, even though he is still technically a criminal, laid a beat down on him that night and betrayed him during Civil War. The Heimdall reveal at the end was probably the only decent story progression featured in the issue.

    I think I'd be a pretty big fan of JMS if he cut out about half his text. Or all the non-dialog text. I dunno. Show don't tell, motherfucker.

    Thor was pretty good, but at the same time it smacked of fanservice. The only thing is if they really wanted Tony to be morally ambiguous, a lot of the shit he's done is just extraneous and unbalanced. Like the Thor clone. It's stupid and distasteful and nonsensical. There was no reason to do it. So he deserved to get his shit wrecked. But I didn't really enjoy reading it.

    Man, this was just a quality week all around. It's the first time every comic I read had a moment of the week.

    X-Factor
    Pietro: I GOTS U NOW LAYLA MY NEMESIS
    Layla: Oh shits, look behind you.
    Pietro: WUT? OH SHI-
    WHAM!

    Trials of Shazam
    Freddy trying to be Atlas and getting crushed under the pressure.
    Freddy: "How long was I out? Three months?"
    Captain Marvel: More like three minutes.

    Nova
    That fucking ending. God damn it, Ko-Rel was so awesome, only to get knifed when she showed her humanity. Also, the return of Drax and Rich is clearly still kicking inside his Phalanx infected mind. Hell, didn't Gamorra sorta give away the Phalanx's weakness?

    Heroes for Hire: Humbug is a cold-blooded motherfucker. At the same time, I smell a double cross. And Misty summed up their situation pretty well: We're the Heroes for Hire. Why the fuck are we on a fucking spaceship?

    Ultimate Power
    Thor beating the shit out of Hyperion and Zarda, the reveal of all the double-crossing shit, Reed outsmarting Emil Burbank. Hell, that alone would've made the issue for me. Then they throw in the motherfucking CLASSIC Squadron Supreme. It's ON.

    Green Lantern
    Lots of great stuff. How the fuck did Ion and the Lost Lanterns get away from the Anti-Monitor? Hal cutting loose with the yellow rings. Also, that last splash page was beautiful.

    Welcome to Tranquility: the whole issue, pretty much. Super powered zombies, lots of details that really fill out the back story, and of course an analogue of Captain Marvel putting the smack down on flesh eating zombies. Why the fuck aren't you guys reading this book?
