Reply Subj: This Month's Previews Thoughts
Posted: Thu Jun 26, 2008 at 08:37:07 am CDT

> I read this month's new Previews issue this morning and here are my thoughts:
> You can't pay me enough to buy MARVEL APES. Good Lord, I thought the Zombie crap was bad....surprised I didn't see Slott's name in the writing credits....

I will try Marvel Apes just to see if it is fun, but i suspect the worst from it.

Also what is with you and the random drop Slott bashing lately? I know you dislike Slott and I happen to like him and on that we disagree. But you used to just bash him when it was an issue relevant to him on a comic or character you like, but lately you drop insults to Slott almost randomly.

> Still shaking my head at Anti-Venom....utter ridiculousness....

True, way too many simbiotes already. I am avoiding spider-man due to One More Day.

> In a strange, completely shocking, WTF twist, I bought AVENGERS: THE INITIATVE #14 yesterday for SECRET INVASION purposes. With Gage co-writing, maybe I will withstand it. We will see. Now no one can say I didn't give the book a chance. Review on Monday.

I have enjoyed Avengers the Initiative so far, it is a closer feel to me to Nicienzas original New Warriors series (which i loved) than any other book out their.

> The end of the New Warriors is coming? Does this mean the book is about to be canned?

I am getting the latest NW series but am not into it, the only character I like in it is Night Trasher. It is on my "consider dropping" list.

> Too much %^&&*'n Wolverine one-shots. Good Lord. Shoot me now, Elf with a Gun....

I also hate how marvel does the whole "over hyping wolverine" thing.

> I can't wait to get NEW AVENGERS #45....I look back at House of M through the eyes of Veranke/Spider-Woman....should be quite intersting. The New Avengers issues have been much better story-wise than the MIGHTY ones, I must add.

I stopped getting new/mighty avengers a while ago as i disliked new avengers darker tone, endless ninja fights and "just spent talking about nothing" scenes. As for mighty, the "thought balloons used only for insults" killed it for me. In fact I reread some mighty and blocked out the thought balloons and found the story to be much better that way. Avengers was always one of my core books (except during heros reborn) and I am currently not getting it until it returns to the feel I once loved.

> SHE-HULK is still being published?

Yes, and suprisingly I am liking it. I dislike the darker twist David has taken since the Madrox series, but for some reason She Hulk is STILL fun for me despite the darker tone.

> Project: PEGASUS is back in NOVA? Cool beans. Should be good. Does Blue Shield still work there?

Nova is one of the best marvel books out their in my opinion and never disappoints me.
