I read the TPB Punisher MAX series collections. I like doing that instead of reading individual issues.

They didn't waste Orion along with Manhunter did they?! I just saw an ad for Final Crisis in Detective that hinted that Martian Manhunter was gonna get done in!

I gotta drop War Journal and Ultimate X-Men.

Although I'm pleased to see that they are reprinting the original Punisher War Journal by Potts & Lee.

They're reprinting the old series? Sweet! My eyes hurt like hell after reading them on the computer screen for so long. >_<

Spoiler: Manhunter is dead, the New Gods are inhabiting the bodies of humans now.

Yes!

Wolverine: Looks to be a good yarn. Liking the art very much. Vines inks really make McNiven's art shine.

Big Marvel Week! But first something completely different;

Conan The Cimmerian #0 - Can't wait for more! I love Giorello's art!

New Avengers #42 & Mighty Avengers #16 - Cripes, who isn't a Skrull?! I'm getting a little bored with these titles just filling in the backstory for the SI. It's getting more ponderous and convoluted than all of the X-Men history! I wish they would start moving the story along.

Captain America #39 - Still love it but wishing Brubaker would pick up the pace! The confrontation between New Cap and Fake Cap was kind of a let down. Needed to be more than the last 2 pages of the book! Next issue better be filled with them beating the hell outta each other with some BIG Kirby style splash pages! A man can dream can't he?!

Wolverine Origins #26 - Nothing new there but very happy that Dillon isn't drawing it anymore! He doesn't do superheroes very well. I think Dillon's style works better for stuff like the DC Vertigo titles.

Ultimates #3 - I know, I said I would drop it but it had Ka-Zar and Shanna in it! Was still disappointing. When are Marvel gonna blow up the Ultimate Universe? Not soon enough! This story blows. I think Loeb is stretching himself thin.

Immortal Iron Fist #16 - Slow. No Kung Fu Action in a Kung Fu comic. WTH? Although Danny did get it on with Misty Knight.

Wolverine First Class #4 - Yeah I read it! Wanna make something of it?! It reminds me of the old days of Marvel.

how about that hulk #4??? i can't wait till the big smack-down in between thor and red hulk!!! and i'm pretty sure doc sampson is not red hulk, but i could be wrong. never know with marvel.

and final crisis #2 was... confusing. but what DC book isn't? hopefully it'll help that i just got all 4 52 GNs. lots of reading to do!

DC Special: Cyborg issue 2 - if only for the frickin' sweet move Changeling pulls on the bad guy.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I know that man, that Doctor on high.
And I know that he has done this deed a thousand time. But not once. No, Sir, not once, not ever has he been thanked!
But no more. For I say to you, "Bravo, Sir! BRAVO!"

Im confused I got Ultimates #4 this week??? Everyone missed the Avengers SI this week?
Only the Young Avengers/ Runaways suck in the whole SI series so far.

I typoed - I got Ultimates 3 #4.

I picked up both Mighty & New Avengers... they're OK... the backstory Bendis is spinning is getting a little thick though. I don't see how he's gonna resolve this without some big plot holes.

Hey maybe when this is all said and done they'll combine the Avengers' titles into The Mighty New Avengers.... :mrgreen:

What? What?
