Moment of The Week 08-27-08

Millar continues to impress me with Old Man Logan. The whole issue was excellent (goddamn McNiven's pencils are awesome). However I'd have to put the best moment at
When Hawkeyes daughter decapitates the Kingpin.

JSA, ASM, and Xforce were also pretty awesome this week.

    Question: Is Old Man Logan more or less like the other stuff Millar has written?

    I didn't pick my books up today, getting them tomorrow.

    However, my Moment of the Weak was finding out that James Jean is done with FABLES as of issue #81. :(

    I like Millar's stuff that I've read
    Which is some of his Daredevil, and Kick-Ass and 1985
    EDIT
    Moment of the Week: Realizing that next month is the next Orson Randall special, about how he managed to survive the killer
    Wooooo Orson!

    When did Mark Millar do Daredevil? Far as I can recall its been Kevin Smith to Brian Michael Bendis to Ed Brubaker. May have been someone briefly between Smith and Bendis, but I wasnt following it back then.

    There were three straight pages of Kick Ass I kind of want to post but I'll stick with this one:

    That is pretty hardcore for a kid and fucking crazy. I love it.

    Teen Titans had a damn cool twist too, they really need stop taking in pets. It never turns out well.

    Has Teen Titans got any better? I dropped it a little while back because McKeever just really wasn't doing it for me.

    From what I can tell, no. Apparently, Wonder Girl is slightly less of a bitch, but everything else just got more so, so it evened out into continuing to be terribad

    It still shows a lot of promise, but I was getting really tired of Wolverine talking about how he'll never fight again. Luckily, that might change by the next issue, though Spider-Bitch will still be a lame idea.

    And the art's fantastic, at least.

    "Tongue in cheek" is not the same as "ham-fisted".


    Also I'm not surprised.

    I think if he would drop the little "stings" like Peter saying "Yeah imagine that" it would be a lot better, though

    MotW is probably Avengers Initiative, but there was an awesome moment in Ultimate X-Men that was pretty much a cheap shot at Ultimate Hulk vs. Wolverine that actually made me laugh out loud

    That would have been ten times more laughable if Wolverine didn't look great.

    I saw the relevant scans on scans_daily, since there's no way I'd risk paying actual money for Teen Titans these days, and I have to agree. Really, when are the Titans going to catch a break? You'd think the JLA would have stepped in by now and just made everyone go home.

    Slight correction though; it was just Wonder Dog, not Rex the Wonder Dog. One's a mutt in a green cape, and one's the canine equivalent of Captain America.
