Skipped the Super-books completely AND Muppets, then?
The Super-books are bought, but my to-read backlog of them goes some way to explaining how I've been finding time to catch up on Cosmic Marvel.
My shop was out of Muppets, so I'm either going to have a nose round Bristol's other fine comic emporia for it during the week or let this be the nudge towards hardcoverwaiting the book (so I don't end up buying it twice).
I don't want to say you're crazy, but you'll have to talk me through that one.
I started thinking about it when I saw the cover of the trade I picked up by Art Adams, who did a nearly identical one for The Authority during his stint on Millar's run. Either that or Hitch did it on Ellis' run. Anyway.
Jimmy reminds me a decent amount of Jack when he was running the team after Jenny died and if there's a Midnighter and Apollo in Atlas, it's definitely Ken and Marvel Boy. It's really the kind of stunts they pulled against HAMMER that remind me most of The Authority, though. They're former government- most of them anyway- who broke away to form a group who intend to shake up the established order. It's probably just because they're heroes pretending to be villains squaring off against a corrupt government agency while The Authority are a superpowered neo-liberal terrorist cell fighting a deeply corrupt establishment. I'm not actually expecting or hoping that Ken teleports the president into the sun.
In the meantime, aside from catching up on your Hickman, I'd really like to see what you think of Veitch's Aquaman. It's the run right after The Obsidian Age, where he gains the Waterbearer Hand. Reasons I think you might find something of interest in it?
An Ocean of Ideas seems like the kind of thing that you'd enjoy.
Black Widow #1 Enjoyed it and thought it worked as a debut issue, but I feel like it could've been more. Iron Man: Noir #1 Liked it a lot. I'm a sucker for re-imaginings, and this one hit all the right notes for me. PunisherMax #6 Not awful, but frankly, I expect more from Jason Aaron than Bullseye hiding a gun in his a**. Secret Six #20 Good as ever. I'm liking where this storyline's going. Siege: Captain America Not bad; Not great; Utterly forgettable Siege: Loki Brilliant take on Loki, excellent storyline and beautiful art. No complaints here.
my list is funny looking
deadpool merc with a mouth
atomic robo (not every month, cuz there's like 8 or 9 issues a year....i forget)
futurama (only comes out every other month)
and i picked up Flash 1 last week
Sif One-Shot #1: I fell in love with this issue. The way that it was written made me want more just like the issue written for X-23 made me want more. I want to see her story, both of their stories written out in an on-going of some sort. Or at the very least have Sif have a second somewhere within the Thor books currently out. While X-23 journey is joining with Pixie and friends it's only right that Sif gets out from beneath Thor's shadow. heart After all who can resist the silliness of the ally named Skuttlebutt?
Power Girl # 11: I enjoyed the fight, most of all I enjoyed the journey and I enjoyed the ending. Well... not soo much of the ending as the rest but I don't want to post anything just yet for those of you who have yet to read it. xd It was so touching. 4laugh
Pixie Strikes Back! #3: Not as fun as the first two. Seems more of a filler for in between issues 2 and 4. Though I have high hopes that Team ROBOunicorn will triumph, at least when certain things become clear.
Second Coming: X-Men Legacy #235 Chap 4: Rogue rocked in this issue. Even though Scott tries to find reasons for her to stay on Utopia he definitely couldn't do so here. There is new found respect for Scott promised within this issue when Pixie appears for one short panel. Not to mention Scott seems in rather positive spirits within the Legacy. Or invokes such, at the very least. Self courage is faced within the matters of war for some of the members of New X-Men. Death number 1 reached.
