How is this book now? I dropped it about 4 issues ago partly because I was pissed off that Sharon was killed for no reason. So has it turned a corner or is it still doom and gloom?

pick up exactly where you left off and keep reading the arc that came after sharons death was supurb, best use of Nuke ever, its gloomy but not depressing

How is Blowing Nuke into bits good use of him?

@theacidskull: I know I should not of done it but reading your spoiler made me think I made the right call, I mean is this book sole purpose going to be shock value?

@movieartman : I find it hard to believe that Remender did a better job then Miller in his Daredevil run. I might pick it back up but I'm still unsure.

@br_havoc: Yes, it is sadly.

@movieartman: Expect nuke was out of character the whole time sadly. He was waaaay F*cked up even before the weapon Plus program got a hold of him.

Dat butt shot. Is it me or does it look like Jet is wearing a thong in one of those panels?

Cool, still really enjoying this book.

@hushofthewind: Seems like she has some kind of undermesh with less see-through material over that covering the naughty bits, as well as crisscrossing in various areas. It is vaguely thong-like in that panel.

I kind of wonder why she has her feet exposed though but not her hands? I assume it has something to do with her omnisenses at least...

I'm enjoying this book. It's about time we get to see what Jet Black has been up to!

This was the book I dropped to make room for checking out all of the new books launching and see if any of them stick. I just wasn't digging this, at least not enough to pull.

Nuke arc has been okay so far. First issue was strong, but the rest have just been battling issues. I will keep this on my list as I love Cap, but this arc is probably gonna be the deciding factor as I really want to add another book.

How old is Jet supposed to be? I could've sworn she was in her early teens (maybe around fourteen?) but the way her body looks/is drawn and the way she dresses she looks like she could be late teens/early twenties.

Besides the unnecessary shock value this book tends to have, I've been really enjoying it and I love the new art. Can't wait for it.

I dropped off after an issue or two of Nuke (i have less than no interest in that character, he's actually a negative value) but I'll check it out again for this.
