In all seriousness though, the guy is probably one of the few good news men we have left.

Word. At least in mainstream broadcasting.

I've had writing sell me a book where the art was lacking before, but Elektra is the first thing I've ever followed where the art sold me so hard that the words hardly mattered. Not that they're bad, mind you -- just the art is on a whole different level.

A bit of an aside here, but since people were talking prices: while I'm glad that Ms. Marvel is $2.99 for readers with a medium preference, it's actually the most expensive book Marvel's selling for anyone who wants a hard copy and digital. It'd be "cheaper" if it came with the same digital bonus code that all their other books do, but as it stands it's actually the opposite.

Also off-topic but how can it be that in 2014 artists still don't get her eye color right? She has green eyes and not blue ones.

Routine, cross-book failure of any editorial team (Avengers or X-Men) to catch and correct that simply speaks to me of the general disregard Marvel folks have for her. It's not that artists can't -- it's that absolutely no one in the line of production, even after over a year of complaining from fans, has cared to remind them to do so.

And if they don't care enough to handle something that simple, is it any wonder that nothing else about her character is being treated properly either?

Of course, one of my major problems with Dennis Hopeless' writing is that I can't tell if he realizes the implications of what he's doing or not.

Heh.

All new Ultimates is nothing more than crap.

Expected more.

It's one thing more than crap: good covers. Otherwise yeah, I am severely disappointed, especially given how great the (roughly) same team was under Bendis before (and even during) Cataclysm.

This book is such a joy. It's basically like getting his Deviant Art profile writ large once a month, with more room to grow.

@the_stegman: Awwwww, stop it. You'll make Greg blush.

Lol, I can't help it, I've agreed with his reviews more than any other, no offense to the other lovely CV staff.

Ditto. I don't think I've ever vehemently disagreed with any of his reviews, even the ones I did disagree with somewhat.

...hmm I still wonder if I should start to read this comic

I've been wondering if I should read this comic every month since it came out. And I've been reading it since it came out.

Love the new layout. I check this every week to double-check what I'm going to my LCS for, so thanks for always posting it!
