The recap page is a fucking Tumblr!

Stop aiming comics deliberately at furious bi-sexual teens with bad hair! I like you Gillen, I like you a lot, but you have fans that aren't children you know.

It's better than white text over a black background.

What did you and Twigg have another lovers spat?

Seriously though I'm not a big fan of this new version of Young Avengers. It just seems to be missing something.

I think the idea is more that Tumblr is the kind of thing that the characters would use than a statement on the average fan. I dunno: I haven't read #2 yet, but I thought #1 was kind of fun.

I think it's more to do with Gillen's (and the character's) massive Tumblr-fanbase. I can't imagine most superheroes have the time for blogging.

It probably is just me, I'm too old for teen superheroes now.

Yeah, but you're old enough (and smart enough) to not care if you don't understand young people. I still feel it!

Try not to over analyze everything and just enjoy life.
