i'm updating this thread cause i really don't have anyone else to blurb about comics to. the owner of my favorite comic shop, like, doesn't like me anymore...

so,
i picked up the new flash book, cause it's the beginning of a new arc, and it was ok.
trinity is starting to heat up, bagley seems to have cleaned up his act and is finally putting out his best.
mighty avengers was... as usual, A FILLER. and is it just me, or is brian micheal bendis, the worst swearer in comics...?

I picked me up some comic books today and I've got to say I'm pretty happy with what I've read

Wolverine Origin:I'm a bit late into the series,picked up a few cause they has wolverine and daken on em,thought it was pretty good.Original Sin:Prologue was pretty cool.

Wolverine Old Man Logan:the art itself is amazing.old man logan is jus bad bum.
also I finally finished reading What If? Spider-Man vs Wolverine.I thought it was pretty boring.I got maybe two chuckles from it.

let's revive this thread! bring on your comic reviews!

Dead of Night: Werewolf By Night - MAX reimagining of one of my most beloved comic characters! gory! foul language! totally different origin! Chancellor isn't old enough to buy it! not sure if I like it yet... didn't hate it though.

Punisher: outwits Sentry. how hard could that be?

Terror Titans: me love Ravager.

Detective: now Hush looks like Bruce. is there nothing Tommy Elliot won't stoop too? yawn.

Kull: never, ever pictured Brule the Spear Slayer with dreads. somebody at Dark Horse is trying too hard to make it different from Conan.

and black lightning: year one? i didn't like how they used jeff's wife as the main narrator... and when are we gonna see him in costume???

and hey! i didn't get any gory warewolf comics... but i did score kickass #5!! THAT has some seriously mature content!!! hahahaha

well technically Tony is still Extremis, it's just that his armor was infected with a Skrull virus. I've been reading Iron Man in TPB form. picking them up whenever I see them for a good deal.

Sentry... wtf? I hate that Marvel is trying to make him into their "Superman". I don't even really like Superman. I guess the one saving grace that makes him slightly interesting is that he's very flawed with a fragile psyche. he'll be the new "Dark Phoenix" at some point when he goes off the deep end and the MU will have to band together to put him down.

you bought KickAss? your LCS owner should be fined for selling porn to a minor! :razz: :lol:

so here is a question for y'all: what titles are you considering dropping?

I'm dropping

X-Force
Deadpool
Immortal Iron Fist
Vigilante (I know it's only been one issue, but he's a weak character)

with comics being $3 a pop I gotta stick to stuff that really interests me. and I bet it won't be long before they're $3.50. sheesh, I remember when they only went up by .10 cents a year. but then I'm old...

oh, i though extremis itself crashed within tony's like, biological system. huh...

a fall of the sentry story would be interesting... maybe that's what bendis was hinting at when he had sentry's wife tell tony to kill him... :?:

yes, my local store owner is a criminal in more that one ways...

i want to drop:

x-force
cabal
mighty avengers
trinity

i'd like to start getting:

dark avengers
most of the faces of evil tie-ins
detective comics

Right now I'm psyched for the "War of the Kings" Marvel cosmic event. So far the Marvel Cosmic books have meshed really well together and this War of the Kings Inhumans one shot... really... really... REALLY got me pumped for this Kree/Shi'ar showdown.

why would you drop Mighty Avengers? I think the Avengers titles are some of the best books Marvel is putting out. especially since you're gonna get Dark Avengers. you know Mighty, New and Dark are all gonna tie together.

do you know that Detective is going on a hiatus for 2 or 3 months during the Battle For The Cowl story? so is Batman. Robin and Nightwing are going to be cancelled in Feb. my guess is that when the BFTC story ends there will be a new Nightwing and a new Robin along with a new Batman.

I have liked Dini's stories in Detective a whole lot more than Morrison's work on Batman. at least Dini's stuff makes sense.

I haven't taken the plunge into the Marvel Cosmic Soap Opera yet. was thinking about picking up the first Annihilation TPB to see if I like it.

i dunno... i was getting bored with the mighty avengers during SI. and jocasta? hank pym as the wasp? i'll have to see. i did hear about robin going on hiatus,(which i've been thoroughly enjoying, and was bummed to hear that) but i didn't know about detective, batman and nightwing. that kinda blows... i'm also pissed that batman and the outsiders is turning in to just "outsiders". at least black lightning is back :D and how they tie the creeper in will be interesting.

I agree about Robin and Nightwing; those are 2 of my favorite current books. will be interesting to see if DC actually has someone become the new Batman or if they will have Bruce come back before there is a successor. if there is one it should obviously be monkey.

I think I read that Dini will be taking over writing on Batman when it starts up again. I hope. anybody but Morrison. :-&

and as long as Bendis is writing Avengers titles I'll be getting them. even with Pym as the new Wasp and Jocasta the hot 'bot.

and do you think there will be a new JLA book after final crisis is over? that's usually when the league breaks up then forms a new roster. in fact, i think that's happend after EVERY crisis in the DCU...
