Just read Men of War. The premise is pretty interesting and I'm liking the art, I like that there taking a "average joe" just a bunch of normal army guys living in a world full of super heroes and super villains.
And I haven't even mentioned the fact that this proved to be build up for the cluster diddly that was House of M and the infamous "No more mutants," dialogue. Avengers: Disassembled heralded Bendis' assumption of near complete creative control of the Marvel Universe.
He's only brought us further into darkness in the ensuing years.
One hand protects the other.
Live the Journey.
But isn't that the point of the Ultimate universe? To be separate from the original one?
So, this week, I got:
Batman and Robin
Demon Knights and Grifter were two that I was originally planning on passing up, but the preview got me to try the first issue. I liked the preview for Demon Knights because of the fantasy setting, and I liked the preview for Grifter largely because it alleviated the thought that Grifter was basically going to be like Deathstroke.
New Ultimate Spider-Man set itself up really well. His family is in no way cookie cutter, but still pretty believable. And his uncle is a great foil to Ben Parker. And...I guess his powers are going to be a bit different than Peter's. I'm a little disappointed in Norman Osbourne's involvement. After all he did, there's no way he should be able to reintegrate into society with any sort of merit. Unless something happened in Fallout that I don't know about, because I didn't read it.
Also I'm in love with Batwoman. :I
"So unless Superboy's human cells originated in a deeply pathological, megalomaniacal, narcissist the likes of which the world has never known... it means we did something wrong." Hilarious.
The quote probably came from the new Superboy issue that came out today. I haven't read the issue, but unless they changed his origin, Superboy was created by Lex Luthor and has some of his dna in him. Hence why it's funny. Because they're unknowingly referring to Lex Luthor.
So, I only got Superboy and Batwoman but I loved both. Kate Kane is my girl crush, but at times the art bothered me. And Kate being so pale as she is always throws me off.
Lmao so is Superboy still related to Lex in Young Justice?
Got most of the ones released this week.
- Batman and Robin
- Green Lantern
- Legion Lost
- Red Lantern
- Suicide Squad
I wasn't sure about Legion Lost, or Suicide Squad but I figured I should at least try them out considering they seem more mainstream than the others. Also got Spider-Island: Spider-Girl #2. Finally read the SI material released last month and it seems okay so far.
I'll read this week's releases tomorrow. When I post my opinion of these, I'll also post what I thought of the 3 books I haven't yet read from last week.
