    That The Wake cover isn't going to be winning any awards, but I'm pretty darn excited to see what's inside.

    @leokearon: I recognize the latter point. I'm just saying that these characters would be very different had they lived in the 616 -- nearly unrecognizable from the people they are in the show. It's j...

    This book would make a lot more sense if they didn't say it's 616.This is a show that has actually denied the existence of magic, and in which mutants are not known to exist by people who live a stone...

    I've never really personally experienced Land's art, just heard it's the worst thing in existence (and/or that he traces porn as a reference). Combining that with Hopeless would suggest I wouldn't to...

    Tooth & Claw, Southern Cross, & Injection look like they'll be going on my pull for the long haul....though waiting nearly a year for some of these sucks :)

    Of particular note is the two-page spread of Matt in a closet listening for any scrap of information about his mission So good.

    I will likely not read any of them, but it's nice to see Tom Taylor working on something this big.

    I thought this was the strongest of the anniversary issues. Not necessarily strong, but better than FF and WAY better than Spider-Man. I'm only getting them for the connecting covers, which on a side ...

  • akbogert posted a message in the forum topic Elektra #4 on the Elektra board.

    In all honesty, I don't care much for the character Elektra at all (guess ninjas just aren't really my thing? though I do prefer them to pirates), but the writing and art of this book are so good tha...

    @teerack: Was it? I guess I just thought he'd suddenly suited up or something. Problem with one-eyed old dudes......or maybe I'm just a particularly careless reader :/

  • akbogert posted a message in the forum topic Original Sin #6 on the Original Sin board.

    Did I misinterpret the last page then? I thought that Fury holding both eyes implied that he had been the killer... or have I simply forgotten where the second eye (not the one they got off The Orb) ...

    So based on the description here, this "one-shot" directly follows and directly leads into B&R... making it not really a one-shot at all. Why not just release this as an annual?

  • akbogert posted a message in the forum topic Marvel Comics October 2014 Covers and Solicitations on the Comic Book Preview board.

    I don't care how bad that new Ultimates book is; that Cloak & Dagger cover is beautiful. Also glad to see Laura popping up in a few things this month.

    I have pretty much no interest in this event -- Logan isn't really even in anything I'm reading -- but any excuse to feature X-23 will get my attention (unless Hopeless is writing it). Doubt I'll buy...

    I pity Brian Wood. There is almost no conceivable way he can live up to what Ellis has been accomplishing here (and the art team will have a heck of a job as well).I picked this book up from the firs...
