I will need to read that again as well. I like it's self containedness but with implications and the art is just incredible. And I love the fact that ORB is in there. It's gonna take a few more readings for me to fully let it all sink in. Also It gets high marks for including Apocalypse.

SHIELD #1

Read this twice and to say this story is huge would be an understatement. There are so many ideas and concepts running through this that I've got a feeling we're going to need a scorecard to keep up. Okay, maybe I will. High concepts are not my forte. I much more enjoy the street level stories like Batman and Daredevil so my little brain has a harder time wrapping itself around some of this stuff.

I have to admit though that I find this to be an intriguing book with just the first issue. I like the legacy of SHIELD but not sure about bringing back Da Vinci. Also for this being SHIELD, I'd sure like to see a character that I'm interested in. Hell, Dum Dum Dugan would be fine.

Now the art is beautiful and well worth the price of admission. I love any artist that focuses on the detail and Weaver does just that. In simple terms: the pictures are purdy.

Story: 7
Art: 10
My Score: 8.75


I'm going to keep picking this up for a while. Nice pick, if I was smarter I'd probably have enjoyed it even more.

So, I think it's down to one of these:

Fall Out Toy Works #4
Gold Digger Peebris Big Adventure One Shot
Dead At 17 Witch Queen #2
or Wire Hangers #1.

The lack of Flash and/or brightest Night will hurt some butts though.

If anyone tries to make me read Brightest Day I'll set fire to their thumbs. I'd go for Fall Out Toy Works, because I wanna compare it to Umbrelly Acadamy and Kill Audio

Shouldn't Dick have been kicked out of the group for missing the last few weeks?

You really don't. I took that bullet for Week 208 and am still recovering.
