So, bad or worse. :smt011

The Intrepids #1 should have been the pick this week, there I said it.

And if you only buy one book this week, it should be Herculian #1.

Should've picked Axe Cop. It was written by a 5 y/o making it fun to compare and contrast to last week's Bendis comic.

Mickey Maus, Reggie the Veggie, Zombie John, Lotta Malarky, Cheeseburger-Head, Dave's Robot--these strips are like nothing you've ever seen.

"The other couples fell silent as Gorilla Mayor and Bacon Mummy hit the dance floor..."

The book is solid gold in the beautiful Golden Age format.

It's better than picking the last issue of a mini. Plus, the preview makes it seem somewhat accessible.

This issue is not mid-arc, but it's not accessible either.

This sounds like the kind of comic that could end famine in Africa and bring peace to the Middle East. Sold!

Secret Warriors #25

This book has consistently been one of my favorite books for the last 2 years. It has had so many awesome moments, great characterizations (at least for Nick Fury) and legitimate shocks that I usually cannot wait for it each week. But something happened this week that kind of turned me on this awesome book, at that was the sight of Leonardo DaVinci....

As awesome as Secret Warriors has been, SHIELD has been a convoluted incomprehensible mess that I really hoped would stay lodged in it's own little corner of the universe. Adding this character to the mix totally took the wind out of the sails from last month, and left me scratching my head as to what the heck any of this has to do with that wanna-be philosophical book.

All that said the book was not bad. I am sure they will explain what is going on in the subsequent issues, but this revelation just adds more questions to the book which is supposed to end in a few short months. It also lacks all emotional impact, which the last issue had in spades.

As for the art, not much to say. It looks good and does the job.

6.5/10

Thanks for that, I totally forgot that the original Kraken is dead.

You bet. I started googling some of the names and that was the best little overview around. It really helped me out since I'm not caught up with all of Secret Warriors and should enrich my re-reading of #25 a lot more.
