I'm about as Yankee as they come, and "emotions you didn't know you had, emotions that connect you to someone else's experiences" pretty much hits it. I never in a million years would have guessed I'd love this book so much.

@war_killer: Well it's supposed to be an event that covers the entirety of the Marvel universe, so it's probably not worth following if you're only interested in one character :P

Winter Soldier's not in this issue? O_O What about his, Moon Knight, and Gamora's team? <_<

This is a pretty big event so not everyone will be featured in every issue.

That said, their team is on the cover of Original Sin #3.

Actually the price for that first issue is $5.99...yeeesh. Fortunately for them I'm like a lost puppy. I follow Brubaker and Phillips wherever they go.

The price is $3.50. It's $5.99 for the special oversized magazine variant (described in the second paragraph). ^_^

"You don't have to consider the purchase, you make it on instinct at this point."

Remender nailed it (though not as hilariously as KSD). I'm not even looking at the preview pages. There is a 0% chance I will not be pulling this.

@sparty_dbq: Consistency would be good, but if you're looking to pick sides I'd go with the way Bendis is doing it.

I don't think I've ever been quite so quickly sold on a book (except for Moon Knight). A few folks said this is a lot like Black Widow but I really didn't click with the first issue of that. This book, though, I immediately added to my pull. I wouldn't want to try to pick between Noto and Del Mundo, but I feel safe saying I think Blackman is the stronger writer.

@g_man is Astro City #12 not out this week, then?

The last page was indeed quite a surprise. In hindsight I especially like it given the conversation between those two guards earlier on.

Despite being someone who had never read anything of the character before, Moon Knight has become the Marvel book I most look forward to. "Essential" indeed.
