What did you think?  Do you like the new direction?  New art?  Are you excited for the clash coming next issue?  Can the team recover from the Skrulls?

God! I hated that cover art. It looks like Hulk & Thor had a baby. Seriously. Paint that Thor green and you have a weird DNA-splicing thing going on.

Yep, I was not into it either.

My brother told me he was thinking the same thing about the art.

Maybe I'm weird, but Ramos is one of my favorite artists. Very unique.

Also, I'm amazed at how rough you are with your comics. Either you get them free or just have a lot of money and don't care? *shrug*

I believe comics are for reading.  My days of freaking out over keeping them in pristine condition are over.  The average comic isn't going to be a life investment.  And if a comic or two gets harmed in the making of these reviews, it's all for you guys.

feel the same way about actionfigures I see no point to leaving them closed......if you look on ebay loose or mint one sell for about the same price....and Ebay in general IMO has made collecting and selling not nearly as much of a profit.

In anycase an important lesson to learn about collecting and saving things is that its only worth what someone will PAY for it.

The obama comic right be worth 80 bucks right now But if noone will pay that then........its only worth what they would pay

Humberto Ramos is the dead end artist. Take a look at "Blinded By The Light". Biggest disappointment ever as far as the art is concerned. You've got the awesome cover for X-Men #200 from David Finch... but then you open it up and say "wtf?"
Don't like his work AT ALL.

@Tainted-Cell: hmm... i dunno about "dead end" artist. He does amazing work in a more anime style than most people might enjoy yes.... but dead end... no.

Not just because it's my video, but there's nothing wrong with commenting on an old thread.  If you just come in and type "bump," yeah, that's stretching it.  But if there's something to be said, added, or questioned, there's no time limit. 
 
This was one of my earliest video reviews.
