    @matthewparker: Second season of AoS is so good. The MCU is being very well fleshed with the show. The show has been great since Cap 2. Seeing the fallout of Shield on TV is a smart move since AoU pr...

    I so hope he somehow turns purple skinned. What hope is there for a comic accurate MODOK without a purpled skinned man first? Embrace the crazy Marvel.

  • TheMantisShrimp posted a message in the forum topic ELEKTRA: A Great Series that Deserved Better Sales. on the Elektra board

    One problem is that this was a 4 dollar book, although it seems pretty much all Marvel books are now. Even DC still has a rather large handful of 3 dollar titles. I did however buy Elektra monthly but...

  • TheMantisShrimp posted a message in the forum topic Batgirl: Endgame #1. on the Batgirl: Endgame board

    @soa: The cover your probably thinking of was a variant for Batgirl 41 not Batgirl Endgame. As far as solicitations show this was always the assumed cover for Batgirl Endgame.

    I think Lemire said in an interview he pitched labeling this volume as "Hawkeyes" but eventually settled on continuing as Hawkeye instead.
