He'll show up.

I'm willing to give him another chance, but he's not what I'm buying the book for. And hopefully he'll do something worthwhile with the pistols, like actually shoot people.

I was thinking this could appeal to everyone as well, especially people that like the classic pulpy stuff which I am assuming is you sir.

For me I just want to ee how they pull off the pulpy super heroics of just the people without any real powers. The classic adventurers where you could easily have people like the Question or the original Blue Beetle show up.

Though for the moment the cast is pretty awesome.

First Wave #1

Art by RAGS MORALES

DC's shocking new pulp universe is finally unveiled! In the shadows of the War, the roots of the Golden Tree cabal grew deep into the heart of a fallen world… and the leaders at the heart of this secret organization see no place in their utopia for heroism. Doc Savage, struggling with the loss of his father, has been blind to their advance – until now. Central City's mysterious Spirit has caught wind of their plans as well. But whose side have the Blackhawks chosen? What is the Red Right Hand? And where is the Batman? Eisner Award winner Brian Azzarello (100 BULLETS, JOKER) and superstar Rags Morales (IDENTITY CRISIS) craft a DC universe like you've never seen before! It's a world with no supermen, only mortal men… Death can come at any moment, and adventure can still be found at every corner of the map! Will Doc Savage be the first to lead the coming world or the last to be crushed under its heel?

I'm sad more of you couldn't at least give the book a long glance in the shop so we'd have something to talk about.

For example, what is that thing strapped to '90s era Cyclop's chest?

I've always wondered.

Ray Tate can also be very vicious when he hates a book. I find that very funny.

fine:

X-men forever #18

Obviously this book has a niche audience that feeds on the 80's nostalgia and that's exactly what the book is. To say I enjoyed the issue would be a lie but I really stopped liking Claremont when he destroyed the Exiles. (I stuck in through the entirety of New Exiles and it just didn't get any better.)

I didn't enjoy the book but I am nowhere near the right audience for the book. Weak Scott Summers dialogue which to me proves why he's become as better character now.

The art is the only thing I really enjoyed about the book.

Score: 5
