What on earth is keeping her costume together? Double-sided tape?

Sheer force of will.

I guess that's her side effect from the having the phoenix force - static cling. I am looking forward to this title, but geez that's just ridiculous (not that her costume before was ever really practical). However, this time I don't think she will even move in battle.

1. Uncanny X-Force 35 - Beautiful End to a great series

2. FF 17 or FF 23 - Issue 17 where Johnny and Peter become roommates is probably the most fun I've had reading a comic lately. Also FF 23 closes out a great series in a way that warms your heart.

3. Earth 2 #2 - A cool take on the golden age characters. While this series hasn't blown me out of the water, it still provides a great world concept and gave me a surprise which is that Jay may be my favorite Flash!

4. Justice League Dark 9 - I'm guilty of loving this series from the beginning, but seeing Lemire get to do this series made it eve better. He seems to be loving Constantine as a character, and it really shows!

5. Hawkeye #3 - I thought I put this on my list, so I'm doing last minute changes. This book has so much wit and charm. I love what Fraction is doing with this. It almost doesn't even feel like a Marvel title. This issue had the most laughs for me

Other cllose runner-ups - Wonder Woman, Flash, Batwoman, All-New X-men, Saga

I probably would have put Wonder Woman in front of Aquaman, but I feel like her stories are better when told together. The same goes for Batwoman. Those are both books that are better read in one sitting since they have long arcs.

The Flash was great in the beginning. I even liked that Flash had a villain that had personal ties to him. Plus, this book is just beautiful to look at. I love the water color flash back-ups. I however am not enjoying it as much lately. I'm just not a Grodd fan, and once Barry decided to go "

All-New has been great for a lasped X-men fan. I love this concept, and the exchanges between characters have been fun.

Saga - Great fun. Number one sucked me in straight away.

This made me drop Superman and Supergirl :(.

I'll wait for Snyder to do a nice makeover. :)

you mean you waded through George Perez's run and then dropped it when finally things began to get interesting. You saying George Perez's run was better?

I read probably the first three issues of Superman. The zero issue, 13, 14. So yeah, I'm dropping it from these past three issues. I love Rockafort though. I just wish Supergirl and Superman didn't have to have an adversarial relationship. I understand what the writers are doing. It's just not my cup of tea. I also didn't like Clark reading Lois's text and his attitude. Mainly it comes down to I have 40 comics I am juggling, and I had to get rid of some things in order to try new things I might like.

I think it's pretty cool that you can have all your comics in one place. I have a pretty small apartment, so comics aren't convenient to keep in boxes.

I also like the bright color you get from digital. Sometimes guided view is hit or miss. It can sometimes be cinematic feeling, but if there are double page spreads like Batwoman for example, you lose what makes that beautiful.

I don't like that you don't have ownership of your content. It makes me nervous that you can't backup comixology files.

I would like to see a subscription service like Marvel Digital Unlimited with a better reader. Preferably an app. DC made a step in the right direction with reducing the price after a month. It could still be better.

My first question to the podcast. I'm really excited about Young Avengers. What are the thoughts on the title? Also if James is there, can you ask if Steppenwolf is "Fury's" father. :-X?
