Pepe Friggin' Laraz.

Added him to my list of favorite artists after his work on Deadpool vs. X-Force. Amazing work.

When I read he'd be doing an issue of Inhumans, I marked.

@mrfuzzynutz: So... you haven't read the last 3 issues, but make comments on what's it's doing wrong?

Seems reasonable. For the internet.

The only thing hurting this book is it's inconsistent release schedule. It's incredibly difficult to get invested in anything with huge chunks of time between issues.

Soule is doing great job despite the lack of Black Bolt and Maximus. He's taking the opportunity to elevate Medusa as well as introduce new characters, who thus far have been pretty interesting.

Relieved to hear I'm not the only who gets completely lost during some issues of this series.

Revealing that the badguy was the son of Monster Girl was a huge plot twist .Never saw that coming.

That was revealed during the actual invasion.

That solves it. I have enough cash for one book this week and it was either this or Uncanny X-Force. I'll wait a week for the latter.

UXF was good - this was better.

That said, while I enjoy buying my comics digitally, I still enjoy buying my comics in hard/paperback trades as well.

Though I prefer digital, I do love hardcover trades.

By default, I go with digital. Just the fact that I can have 80-90% of my collection with me wherever I go is a huge plus. Additionally, I don't have to deal with long lines and storage. However, since I'm predominantly a Marvel reader and most of their paper versions include a bonus digital code (even trades), I'll buy the paper and redeem the code.

It also helps that I work a block away from Midtown Comics in NYC - so it's not a huge deal to hit the shop. Just stop in before work, pick up my copies and redeem the codes whenever I get a chance. If I had to go out of my way for paper versions, I probably wouldn't bother.

I'm sure Bradley Cooper will be good, and I think his voice is a good fit as well. I just really don't get why they always hire big name actors for these types of roles when they could get terrific seasoned voice actors for a fraction of the cost.

B/c voice actors don't have box office power. The general public isn't going to head to the movies because Nolan North is voicing a character - Bradley Cooper and (unofficially) Vin Diesel? Yea, they will.

That's the gist of it. Marvel is a business. If they could cast "no-name" voice actors for these characters and expect the same box office performance that they could with Cooper and Diesel, they would.

Not sure if it's included anywhere in those trades, but New X-Men: Academy X was AMAZING during Decimation. The arcs Childhood's End and Crusade were incredible.
