GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #13: I love this title, and I really like Brad Walker's artwork. For those who don't know, Brad is the regular artist now, with that other guy only filling in for the last two bi-weekly issues. Anyway, this team's roster is huge now, but I'm glad Moondragon is back and on board. The WAR OF KINGS begins for the Guardians big-time, and it was good to see Polaris and Havok again, since I don't buy any X-titles anymore. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next.
NEW AVENGERS #52: Chris Bachalo's artwork sucks. It just plan sucks. And never used to draw this badm too. A shame. Anyway, I enjoyed this issue well enough, and I was genuinely surprised when the Son of Satan showed up at the end. I guess that LAST DEFENDERS series was a waste of time, since She-Hulk is a member of the Lady Liberators and Daimon Hellstrom looks to be on his own again. I liked his conversation with Patsy Walker. He still loves her, despite himself. Now that Stark is gone, maybe Patsy will leave Alaska and join one of the Avengers teams. Right now, I'm going to say that I think Clea will be the new Sorcerer Supreme, by the way.
MIGHTY AVENGERS #24: I don't know about everyone else, but I'm super-glad that Loki is posing as Wanda, leaving my girl free of Slott-ness. Quesada has stated numerous times that Heinberg will be the one to bring Wanda back, so I figured Slott wouldn't be the one to do it. And I was right. Despite all the inane "jokes", overwhelming dialogue and pointless Slott cameos (like Swarm and Titan), I still liked the book. It does have a classic Avengers feel to it, and I like the line-up. I may be skipping the next two issues, though. No one wants to see the Avengers fight the FF except for Slott and his drones. CIVIL WAR is over, dude.
DARK REIGN: ELEKTRA #2: So far, Zeb Wells is writing a great storyline for Elektra. She barely says a word, and yet her actions speak volumes. The way she took out a whole squad of HAMMER troopers was intelligent and swift, showing us that Elektra still has it, despite what was done to her on the Skrull Throneworld. In the meantime, someone has put of a hit on Elektra -- an $82 million hit -- and it has to do with "keeping the stars safe in the sky". A twin pair of assassins, who reminded me of the Fenris twins, is the next to try and collect the money. Can't say right now who the mastermind is yet, but I think it will be someone interesting. And the mystery as to why Elektra was the one prisoner tortured and experimented upon continues, while Norman Osborn sends Hawkeye/Bullseye to murder Elektra. Nice book.
