    Legacy #5? Already?

    Hmm. I guess since 4 was a fill in issue this one was able to come out early.

    And a Blink and Tag TPB? Oh happy days! And Tales of the TMNT.

    And that Helltown book by Denny O'neil with the Question, Shiva, and Bats. I want to check it out if only to see O'neil write Q again.

    Agents of Atlas needs more love. It really is a fun book to read. :^:

    Since Anita Blake #1 was pretty good, I was wondering if you guys had read any of the other Dabel Brothers' projects that Marvel is publishing. Am I missing out on anything there?

    DMAC,

    I have been looking at those Street Fighter comics, and I just can't get myself to buy it. I mean..> Street Fighter.

    But man, that art... that beautiful art!

    TEll me, I must know, is the story at least... acceptable?

    I've only read 52, Detective Comics, and Nightwing so far

    52 - Dr. Sivana's wife is one racist bitch

    Detective Comics - fucking terrible all around. The dialogue was retarded and the art even more so.

    Nightwing - the story is actually intriguing, but the dialogue just hasn't gotten there yet.

    Both the regular Street Fighter series and the Sakura mini-series have been solid so far. I mean, if you're looking for deep character-driven plots then look elsewhere but they've been very faithful to the established storyline from the game and the art is great.

    The Sakura series has been a lot of fun. Lots of humor and little cameos from different Street Fighter characters, Dan getting his ass handed to him several times an issue...

    As I understand it, AoA is Golden Age characters doing their thing in the present day. So far, there's been a lot of background info on the characters and where they've been, and we've seen them thwart SHIELD on a couple of occasions. So far, we know that old Jimmy Woo was almost killed while trying to find out about the "Atlas Corporation", [spoiler:af05adb08e]but when Marvel Boy saved his life, he had to revert to his younger self[/spoiler:af05adb08e]. So the rest is pretty much the team coming back together and trying to figure out what almost got Jimmy killed.

    I knew jack shit about the characters before picking up the book, but it was pretty easy to get into the story. Ape Man and anachronistic Jimmy Woo ftw. :P

    As I understand it, AoA features characters from the Atlas Comics days. I dunno about Jimmy and Gorilla Man, but Namora, Venus, and Marvel Boy were from around that time.

    Yeah, I was duped too. I thought…finally, a giant sized issue like it's supposed to be! With 64 pages of goodness.

    I remember back in the 90's or so, they would have giant sized issues that were 64 pages, and it was actually 64 pages of the story you wanted to read, not a reprint or interviews or whatever.

    Still though…the 30 pages of planet hulk was still quite good :D Pretty easily my favorite event of the year.

    The back-up was good, but I had absolutely no interest in the classic issues they reprinted.

    Anyone else have a silly hope that the Hulk brings some of his buddies back to Earth with him?

    I just can't believe Phoenix Warsong and Hulk are both being written by the same dude.

    Yeah, the difference is pretty :shock:. Then again, he hit a real sweet spot with this sci-figh-adventure Planet Hulk mix. It reminds me of Sword of the Atom.

    I'm wondering if he's writing himself into these two books - the two young, male Korean characters that come out of nowhere. I'd love for him to pull a Morrison (whose work he obviously appreciates) and use the Amadeus Cho to break the fourth wall and be all, "Hulkie, I'm the only one to understand ya'."

    I think the Cho kid was part of a contest they had in the newest incarnation of Amazing Fantasy, where they put like five origin stories into one issue and had fans vote on who would actually show up again.

    And thinking back, it's not the first time that a character from Amazing Fantasy showed up in Hulk. During House of M, a female Scorpion was involved, and she was in AF first.

    The Deaths Head story started in AF before they showed up in Planet Hulk.

    Correct.

    Also, Justice League:

    Lets see if I can do this without spoiler tags.

    I think it's going to end with the group that's already forming and kicking ass inviting the people who are trying to remake the group while they just sit there and look at pictures.

    Today was good. Got the new Metal Gear Solid: SOL #8, the two issues of Fables that came out in previous weeks, The Goon Noir (didn't even knew this had came out already), Scarlet Traces: The Great Game #2, and The Perhapanauts: Second Chances #1 (though it makes no sense to me. I thought it was a new series, but it looks like its already well underway).

    Also chatted it up with the store owner who was at Stumptown this past weekend. Kazu Kibuishi is one hell of a cool, nice dude. Fred Grisolm of Hate Song was also cool. The con itself was kind of small compared to others, but it drew a decent crowd.

    52- Kind of unremarkable really. The whole Sivana family thing didn't do much for me, and neither did the Steel bits. It does look like Question and Renee's story is finally going to start going somewhere new though, which I'm completely ready for. This issue also took steps to make Osiris just a little bit more likable. The special guest appearance by Aristotle Rodor was neat too. B-

    All New All Asian Atom Alliteration (Issue 1)- I decided to snag this off the back issue shelf due to reccomendations from others here, and I was actually kind of pleasantly surprised. Byrne's art isn't as eye-bleedingly bad as I was expecting, and Simone's writing is much sharper than it has been on Secret Six. Ryan seems like kind of a fun new hero, who genuinely enjoys what he's doing. The little science quote boxes annoy me though, and I imagine they will continue to until Ted Kord gets one, at which point I will claim that I enjoyed them even back before they became cool. A

    The Irredeemable Ant-Man- What a fun book. Kirmnan's definitely putting off kind of an old school vibe, with thought balloons, a lot of exposition, and big, smash-up action scenes. Hester's doing good work as always, but what was up with those little rectangles over certain panels that created kind of a color negative over the art? Were those in everyone's copy or was it just a weird printing error? This issue did disappoint me in one respect. [spoiler:345ed70b0a]I'd hoped that this would be kind of a buddy cop book, with Chris and Eric taking turns in the suit, and people wondering why Ant-Man would suddenly be a dick and then suddenly not. I wasn't expecting a bug themed hero to get his brains blown out while his friend ran off like a coward. I was also kind of hoping that this book would be sort of an Ant-Man: Agent of SHIELD book, spotlighting the random goings-on at SHIELD, but given the last page, and Eric's apparent defection from SHIELD, this seems unlikely. Not a bad thing, just surprising.[/spoiler:345ed70b0a] A for Ant-Man!

    She-Hulk- Well. Huh. You know what I miss? When this book was about legal shenanigans. Slott, let's get back to that hm? The art's pretty cute and nice looking, and a good fit for She-Hulk, but Christ am I ever tired of this Star God talking anthropomorphic wolf that can fight Thanos and not get obliterated bullshit. I really hope the Planet Without a Hulk arc can save this book, because I really cannot take any more of this shit. C-

    Justice League of America- Meltzer's narration is now starting to wear on me. I desperately want the big three to stop fucking around looking at pictures, and actually go do something. Actually, that's pretty much my feelings on this book as a whole. I want it to do something. We're four issues in now and the plot is progressing at a glacial pace. Ed Benes turns in some pretty nice art that's an oddly appealing mix of Turner and Jim Lee, and Meltzer's still writing good dialogue, but Christ, get to the fucking point. C-

    Blue Beetle- Fuck. I actually find myself liking this book. The dialogue's crisp and witty, the art's energetic and fun, and the story for this issue's pretty great. Jaime, Brenda, and Peacemaker (who's quickly becoming the star of this book), all set out to find Dan Garrett's granddaughter and research the scarab's origin. Garrett's granddaughter's kind of a jerkette, noting that Ted, though a nice and funny man who consorted with that jerk Buster Gold, really sort of stole Garrett's scarab, when it should have legally been turned over to the Garretts, and Jaime is continuing the theft by keeping it welded to his spine. This kind of ignores the whole part about the scarab being buried for years and years, and Ted only reacquiring it a short time before his death, but whatever, it still makes a decent story.

    My main criticism of this book is that the villains are completely retarded. The big green hunchback shows up again here, and I can't even remember his name. He, La Dama and her creepy metrosexual magician sidekick, and the Posse (I know they're not really villains anymore, shut up.) are all just thoroughly lame, and this book desperately needs some antagonists that don't suck. And another thing. Jaime has cried in like, four out of eight issues now, and in this one it's Ted firing up the waterworks over Garrett's dying self. I guess Cully Hamner really likes drawing dudes crying, or Rogers and Giffen like writing it. It just stands out to me for some reason. Anyway, fuck, book of the week really. Fuck. Hope they can keep it up. Alternatively, I hope it nosedives in quality and gets cancelled so Ted can come back, but either are acceptable. A+

    Well, technically we're three issues in to the plot..but hey..splittin' hairs.

    Im abit on the 'meh side' with Benes. I will say, however, that the Phantom Stranger looked great, as did the spread of Dinah 'doing' the Yellow Tornado.

    It is going a bit slow, but it also isn't a mini series, so frankly, Meltzer might take as long as he needs too. Also, you can tell Bats has changed, as a year ago he would have whipped out a few batarangs and a kryptonite ring had he seen his picture on the table.

    Well, she got three last month. Plus, it's Vixen, she's won't be getting as much page time as some of the others. You know that. But hey, she gets next months variant.

    And it's the JLofA people. Let's get with the times.
