Moment of the Week 09-03-08

edited September 2008 in Graphic Violence
Well, besides the fact that books showed up today instead of tomorrow here in Canada(or at least at the store I go to)


Fables:
Prince Charming making the ultimate sacrifice taking out the final gate. And Bigby going toe-to-toe with the Emperor.


Secret Six:
Catman going nuts and taking people out.

Havn't finished reading everything yet, but I think Fables is the big one for the week.

    I skimmed through Punisher: War Journal last week in my comic shops preview books and the ending to the Jigsaw story is my MotW.
    Please, Marvel, PLEASE keep Jigsaw dead for at least a few years. He's a bad guy who shouldn't have stayed alive this long in the first place. Of course, he'll probably turn up in the Hood issue of New Avengers.

    books are actually delivered on the same day as far as i can tell. i picked up my books yesterday.

    my lcs guy goes and picks up his order on tuesday himself instead of waiting for the delivery and then pre sorts them for sale on wednesday. i can usually score my books from him on tuesday.

    Books were delivered in Canada a day before they were in the States.

    Don't blame us, blame Diamond.

    ... and why is Secret Invasion: Front Line so good? It only took them 3 times to get it right. It's just pure drama.

    There's a new Secret Six, is there? How'd I miss that?

    No regular books made my favorite, but I do have to thank Marvel for putting out that free Marvel Universe book that straightens out all the jumbled continuity for the past couple of years.

    It's
    Bane. He's on the Secret Six with seemingly no explanation, although I can't say I'm upset with him on the roster. Their 6th member has yet to be disclosed however.

    my non moment of the week was seeing how crappy Secret Origin in GL is getting
    territorial edict? more prophecies? not even a mention of Sinestro's iron fist rule over Korugar? hal being able to work his ring against yellow?

    it's not necessarily a horrible story, it just doesn't jive with any GL pre-Johns, which is odd because Johns is usually pretty good at making everything fit

    Yea, the Secret Origin in GL really feels like its dragging on to me. It's been going on for 5 issues now? At least the next issue is the last of Secret Origin.

    The page I saw said somebody cut out her heart. So I guess sci-fi life support is keeping her alive without one?

    Eh, it didn't really click for me. Seems weird that a kid whose abilities are pretty much limited to dicking around with his metabolism and sticking lasers on his fingers is able to slap around Iron Man like that.

    And that awful non-cliffhanger was lame.

    Tony Stark speaks binary, and he's dead?! But what does this mean for the future of Iron Man?!

    I liked it myself, and I think Stane's abilities were pretty in line with what was already established and the obvious assumption that he had been holding back when not, you know, fighting Iron Man.
    I kind of didn't like how Stane's motive seems to be tied to the death of his father and resulting resentment, though. It's a bit cliched.

    Honestly, I think Stane's motivation should tie at least a little to Information Should Be Free. I mean, we know Tony's a smart person, and a good person, but he does love keeping information he thinks is important as secret as possible for as long as possible. I'd like the idea of Stane eventually planning on releasing this technology to the public at large once he's gotten Iron Man. It's a sorta-rip of The Incredibles, but I think making that argument central would be really smart and interesting.

    Right, I mean the Iron Wars has been done, but I do like the idea of really sticking it to Tony that his own incredible mind is what's making this possible, what might make a whole generation of tech villians possible. He's determined to improve the world by building better weaponry, even if he's not selling it. Eventually he's not going to be able to keep ahead of the curve, and it's all going to go tits up.

    Honestly, as much as I like a good punch-up, my favorite parts about Iron Man are the What If Science parts and the business of figuring out how to save the world.
