In anycase I can't decide between Invincible Iron Man #29, Steve Rogers: Super-Soldier #2 or Thor the Mighty Avenger #3.

I'm leaning towards Thor because Roger Landridge is doing such a great job that I believe it's better than the main title. What do you guys think?

I'm not reading any of those titles. So from my point of view, pick the one that easiest for me to understand as a nonfan.

Probably then either SR:SS or Thor. One's a mini and the other's just started.

I am mainly a superhero reader. I am looking forward to his THUNDER Agents, though.

If you were a fan of Runaways and or Lost this will appeal to you, like a lot. Plus it's 44 pages for only 3.50 so you should check it out.

Joe Eisma the artist is a good friend and an amazing talent. I really think most of the group would dig it actually.

Was a fan of Runaways. Hated Lost.

It sounds cool and all but I think I'm going to go with Landridge's Thor.

I just read the first trade of Chew. It did absolutely nothing for me.

The concept of a cibopath and whatever that girl that Chu had a crush on was great, but the comic itself was strictly average as far as I was concerned.

I mean in the sense of how popular it was. nothing in common theme or art wise. :lol:

I guess.

It's just that it felt like Layman put in every single cop cliche he could think of into that book.

Cop's partner is injured. Check.

Cop's brother is a crook. Check.

Cop's boss hates him and thinks he's a loose cannon. Check.

Cop's new partner is untrustworthy. Check

I was actually quite surprised by this. While not the strongest issue of JL: GL, it's certainly entertaining. I'm actually interested in seeing a more detailed description on the events leading up to this alternate future. The art reminds me of Eaglesham's work. Definitely one of the better comics from DC.

7.8* out of 10*
