Impressive

1. Daredevil: For an ongoing that's over 30 issues in now and not had any major blunders is pretty damn impressive. Waid just continues to make Daredevil one of the most consistently well-written characters in the Marvel roster.

2. Avengers Arena: An ongoing that has a premise that made many skeptics predict a contrived and short run. To be honest, Hopeless has taken the theme and just put that as a back burner to the incredible character developing he is doing with some of Marvel's lesser known teen heroes. The way the characters are spotlighted and the intricate storytelling in this book, that was already labeled as "doomed to fail", is what really makes it impressive.

3. Thor: Never really cared about the character before this book. To be honest this book never has me excited to read it when it comes out nor is it ever my most anticipated issue every month, but damn whenever I do get done reading each issue I am just blown away. The tension and grandiose scale of challenges that Jason Aaron puts Thor through is just incredibly dramatic. What is impressive is that this book balances three stages of Thor's life and gives each version connecting details to not make the concept seemed forced or unnecessary.

Disappointing

1. Deadpool: This ongoing is starting to get better, a bit, but still this book is just too hokey for its own good. Not every line of dialogue needs to be some corny joke. We get it, Deadpool is a funny and over-the-top character, but give us readers a little more credit than thinking we'll only laugh at juvenile jokes. Deadpool's humor could be smarter than this.

2. Thunderbolts: Disappointing from the very start. How do you ruin an all-star cast consisting of Punisher, Elektra, Venom, Red Hulk, and Deadpool?? Oh... right... Daniel Way... that's how. Dillon's stiff art didn't help much either. Haven't picked it up since Soule got on board so it could be better now but the first couple issues left such a bad taste in my mouth that I would be hesitant no matter who picked up this title after that train wreck.

3. Captain America: One of my favorite writers, Remender, and one of my favorite characters, Cap, so it should have been a recipe for success. Unfortunately the first arc just couldn't hold my attention. I don't care for Dimension Z, I don't care for this little nobody that Cap is trying to rescue, and I especially don't care at all for Romita Jr.'s art. Only saving grace was the flashback we would get in each issue, but one or two pages of backstory doesn't justify a worthwhile purchase. Could be better now that Cap's out of Dimension Z but I don't know, once I drop a book I rarely go back.

Just finished reading the run and I felt it was worthy enough to recommend: Mike Carey's run on X-Men. His run on the X-Men (starts at #188 with art by Chris Bachalo, woo!), continuing into writing the entire first volume of X-Men Legacy, is really deep and emotional, especially for Rogue fans. His run flew under the radar for me because it wasn't one of the main books at the time but seriously, it's good stuff.
