Matt Fraction is doing a great job with Kate Bishop in Hawkeye right now. Honestly, I have little to no interest in the new series, especially Miss America. The character has annoyed me every time I have seen her and I'm not really a fan of Kieron Gillen's work at Marvel. I might pick it up around issue #6 though, I have heard that Speed will be returning and Prodigy will be joining the team.

Fantastic Four by Hickman v.5 – Fucking EPIC! This felt bigger than all the major crossovers. You have the Kree and the Annihilation Wave attacking, the Inhumans, Galactus and then a squad of Celestials drop in.

Lots of cool moments. Two of my favorites where some of the smaller moments. when the FF saw the flaming ‘4’ in the sky, I got goosebumps. And Reed’s conversation with Annihilus, he was kind of creepy.

I’d like to see more of the Johnny and the Light Brigade. Maybe they can join the Future Foundation. :D

Art was great, Steve Epting works on any type of book. Barry Kitson faces kind of look like Amanda Conner at times. Johnny’s story in the Negative Zone also had really good art. There was a part where a woman explodes and it was cool without being gruesome.

I don’t know how the rest of the series can measure up.

I’ve really liked his Marvel work, and think he got short chained with the X-Men after AvX. Fucking Bendis.

Haven’t read anything with Miss America but I’m sure Loki will outweigh her terribleness. :P

Prodigy from the Slingers? I like him but I didn't like him in the last Avengers Academy trade.

It was awesome. Did you read FF alongside it?

Well, I must say that I absolutely LOVE Young Avengers. Plus they published my letter on issue # 4.

Dial H v.1: Into You – It was mostly good, I liked the last two issues more than the main story. I’m on the fence on getting the second trade.

Art was good, again I liked the artists in the last two issues more than the main artist. That lizard guy was really cool looking though.

No, it was late and I didn't want to stay up too late. :D It did spoil something though.

Reading that next.

That's what you get for starting a Hickman comic at 4pm... You always finish at 10pm the next day :P

I have FF v4 but I'm waiting for F4 v6 before I start that. I might just read that on unlimited though.

I just got FF v.4 yesterday. I'm annoyed they released the first Fraction trade before the last Hickman one.

Peter Bagge's "Other Stuff" collection of back-ups from Hate and elsewhere. Man, Bagge used to be a riot before he went (kind of) off his rocker. Also, who knew Alan Moore could also be hilarious? (See: Kool-Aid Man strip.)

They released Marvel NOW F4/FF in one trade together, right?

Alan Moore had some amazingly funny stories in 2000AD, like D.R. & Quinch (still makes me laugh every time I re read it).

Thor God of Thunder vol 1: The God Butcher by Jason Aaron & Esad Ribic

This was just okay. I expect more from Aaron. The whole 3 Thors got a bit confusing at times and the whole God Butcher character seems too one-dimensional. Was not as impressed as I thought I'd be. Bought the HC and it feels weird, like this waxy coating on the cover that makes it feel weird to hold. The good thing is that it comes with the digital edition. Art is good. I hope Ribic is the main artist on this series.
