    And you can just tell by reading these solicits that the Ultimate line is beyond repair? I get all the Ultimatum hate but I at least think you should give all non-Loeb UC books a chance.

    I like those solicitations. More Warren Ellis Ultimate Iron Man is a good thing.

    Thats true. Its just that the last few years have seen anything Jeph Loeb minus Tim Sale turn into a giant clusterfuck. Sales wise Marvel's been on top, but the quality coming out from "Ultimatum" was vomit inducing at best.

    Hopefully the Ultimate Line relaunch will erode some of the suck eminating from Jeph's hands.

    Since Ultimatum was really just "hey let's slim this shit down and reunify it" I don't think he really killed the Ultimate line at all!

    Just wrote one really bad event mini

    Tony Stark has a brain tumor or whatever, so Millar is introducing his smarter, richer, probably ruder, more dickish older brother!

    MARVEL DIVAS #3 (of 4)
    Written by ROBERTO AGUIRRE-SACASA
    Art by TONCI ZONJIC
    Cover by PATRICK ZIRCHER
    When Angelica ”Firestar” Jones' battle takes a turn for the worse, Patsy “Hellcat” Walker makes a deal with the Son of Satan to save her friend's life. Fortunately (or unfortunately), Monica “Photon” Rambeau’s gotten ahold of one of the world's most powerful occult objects – but does she have the will to control it? Meanwhile, Felicia “The Black Cat” Hardy slips back into her black bodysuit (and her old life of crime?)...putting her into direct conflict with her on-again-off-again flame, the Puma!
    It's the brawl for it all, folks, and someone's getting their face messed up!
    32 PGS./Parental Advisory ...$3.99

    Firestar has breast cancer? I hope they don't go that way, it seems a bit contrived. "Women talking about women things battling a primarily woman's cancer."


    And rumor has it Phil Jiminez is replacing Bianchi on Astonishing X-Men. That doesn't make any sense, just cancel the series a move on.

    She last wrote the Hellcat mini, with David Lafuente on art, which was really charming, quirky, and fun. So I'm inclined to say yes. But, they've been promoting the death of another character in her first story arc, so that does concern me a bit.

    They're going to kill Old Lace to bring back Gert, more than likely.

    If they bring back Alex, fuck that noise.

    It's not contrived so much as it's a plotline from "Sex and the City".

    PUNISHER NOIR #2 (of 4)
    Written by FRANK TIERI
    Penciled by PAUL AZACETA
    Cover by TIM BRADSTREET
    Variant Cover by DENNIS CALERO
    Frank Castle has come face to face with the evil that men do, in the trench warfare of the muddy battlefields of World War I. He’s come home only to see his city carved up amongst the mob families, as the power of organized crime syndicates rise up to challenge that of the government. In reaction to the Punisher’s War on Crime, two hitmen are dispatched to deal with him permanently: a killer whose face is a roadmap of hell, and the biggest, meanest mountain of muscle ever to come from the streets of Harlem. With Jigsaw and Barracuda on the scene, “paint the town red” will take on a whole new meaning.

    The seeds of discontent bear fruit in the new Initiative as several members rebel against Norman Osborn's new regime, and one state team openly secedes...but Norman and the Taskmaster don't take kindly to disobedience. The Avengers Resistance is having troubles of its own, however, as one New Warrior quits...another is taken prisoner...and Tigra's campaign of revenge escalates. Meanwhile, the therapy sessions between Trauma and Penance take what could be a very dangerous turn...and Butterball fever hits America! It's action, intrigue and tangled webs being weaved in the mighty Marvel manner!

    INCREDIBLE HERCULES: DARK REIGN PREMIERE HC, DEADPOOL VOL. 2: DARK REIGN PREMIERE HC, MARVEL 1602 PREMIERE HC (maybe), SAVAGE SHE-HULK TPB (again maybe), and CAPTAIN BRITAIN AND MI13 VOL. 3: VAMPIRE STATE TPB.

    So Sacassa gets upset when people ripped it for tagging itself as a "Sex and the City" knockoff with heroines and then goes ahead and does something that cements that notion? Fail.

    And Dark X-Men: The Confession looks to be filler if they can't even get an artist on it at this time.

    ULTIMATUM: REQUIEM PREMIERE HC

    Collects all the requiem issues from each Ultimate book.

    Now I might buy the singles tomorrow so I only have to get the Spidey ones...

    I'm a wait-for-trader on the Marvel side of things, so my interest is peaked by Deadpool 2, Captain Britain 3, Ultimatum: Spider-Man, X-Men Noir, and...uhh... that's pretty much it.

    So, no Thor. How far behind is that book now?
