    Definately these...

    APR082255 AMERICAN DREAM #3 (OF 5) $2.99
    APR082304 MARVEL SPOTLIGHT SECRET INVASION $2.99
    APR082292 SECRET INVASION #3 (OF 8) SI $3.99

    Maybe this...

    APR082259 AVENGERS INVADERS #2 (OF 12) $2.99

    Is the A/I book any good? I'm not into the whole DC-ish "Let's bring characters from other timelines into the main one" crap that seems to be apparent in this book.

    Man, killing my favorite character one week, JLU's last issue the next week.

    I think comics are trying to destroy me.

    From what I've heard it reads like typical Alex Ross fanfiction

    I guess since you are a mod you get to be president. Since everyone on the forums hates me I get to be treasurer.

    He's a douchebag and some of his art can be really boring but Kingdom Come and Marvels are both awesome

    I think he's all right. Like some of the stuff, dislike others.

    Alex Ross seriously needs to put the pencil down. He makes everyone look like they're senior citizens.

    Justice yesss

    I think I might actually like Justice more than Kingdom Come. Haven't read Marvels.

    I have really fanboyishly nitpicky reasons why I don't like Justice that would probably sound retarded to most people. Kingdom Come was VERY good though.

    Justice was nice because it was just a bunch of pretty pictures of heroes smashing villains. And the premise was at least pretty intriguing. Why didn't you like it?

    To me, Justice seemed like it was plotted by a five year old Alex Ross banging his Superfriends toys together in the sandbox.

    "And then Batman gets his super Bat-Armor and punches Lex Luthor and Superman is wearing Lead and he fights Metallo and weeee pixie sticks!"

    Don't say I didn't warn you because I've been called pretty stupid over this twice already. I HATE the way Alex Ross draws Batman. I hate the lack of eyelets/lenses in his mask, I hate the lack of body armor, I hate seeing his 'furrowed brow' through his cowl. I REALLY hate Batman wearing a winter coat at the Fortress considering the number of times Bat characters have said their suits/capes are insulated against the cold. Then add in the weird armor that everybody wore to protect themselves from the mind-control worms. I just really can't get over the fact that Alex Ross can't think outside the silver age and cannot accept Dick Grayson being Nightwing or anyone other than Barbara Gordon being Batgirl. Etc. Etc. Plus even early twenties and teen heroes he draws look old. Okay, mini-rant over.

    That's what all of Alex Ross's writing reads like. It all reads like fanfiction (at least what I've read).

    What else has Alex Ross actually written, as opposed to co-written?

    Did he solo write those over-sized one-shots like Batman: War on Crime?

    RE: the Bat-insulation - maybe they're not insulated against full-on Arctic weather but just the normal sort of cold you might find in, say, Gotham?

    One would assume they're insulated enough to fight Mr. Freeze
