I plan to buy this because I enjoyed Justice.
> CAPTAIN AMERICA #38....Oh, look, it's the Red Skull! Oh, yeah, baby! We haven't seen this guy in ages! Oh, wait, he's been in the last 37 issues. D'oh! "The Never-Ending Story" Part 38 of Infinity! Watch out, Rhino! The Red Skull is itching to become Chief Overused Villain Ever!
I dropped this because the pacing is way too slow and Steve Rogers isn't returning.
> IRON FIST....*flushes toilet*; nothing against the writers, but the idea of multiple Iron Fists through the ages (ala Witchblade and the Darkness and....) and multiple cities like K'un-Lun totally ruins the uniqueness that was once Danny Rand and K'un-Lun. Just my opinion. I gave this series a try for five issues and I just couldn't take it.
Here again the pacing is way too slow. Plus I detest seeing Danny shoot chi like a laser.
> GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY....cool book alert! Quasar!!!! Gamora!!!! Plus, Drax, Starlord and Adam Warlock! Plus, Abnett and Lanning, writers of NOVA. I'm in!
I'll be buying this.
> IRON MAN: DIRECTOR OF SHIELD #29....Sweet Christmas!!!!!! Madame Masque is back!!!!! Not that fakeout thing version Bendis used in NA, but the real one (I hope)! And the Maggia is back!!!! Whoohoooo! While I don't collect this title anymore, I'm on board for these four issues, baby! Whitney!!!! my second favorite comic book character of all time! *love*
I've decided to sample this comic for a few issues because Tony Stark seems so central to so much of what's happening.
> FANTASTIC FOUR #557, GHOST RIDER #23, X-FACTOR: THE QUICK AND THE DEAD....each book with the most shocking last pages ever! Well, only one of them can claim that, and I doubt any of them will pull it off. Ah, you've gotta love that idiotic Marvel hype machine.
None of these interest me.
> CAPTAIN BRITIAN AND MI:13....since Spitfire and Black Knight are a part of this team, I'm all over this new title.
Hmm. I wasn't planning to get this but I might change my mind.
> MS. MARVEL #27...BEST....BOOK....EVER! As usual! William Wagner's secrets are revealed! Is he the secret Kree? I mean, they're revealing his stuff in this storyline, and since the Skrull is on the Lightning Strike team....if true, that means whoever Sarah Day really is is another set of marbles (Hecate). Would be neat if Sarah turned out to be Dr. Minerva, though.
I hate to say it but books about women almost never hold my attention for very long.
Yet for some reason I hold out hope for a Valkyrie book and a Thundra book. I think it's because they're very warlike which in my sick mind makes them honorary men. |)
