Punchy's ideal dialogue in a comic book.

Sir Pansybottom McWellington: 'Allo, Guv'ner. Care for a nip o' tea as Ah lay me wee knuckles on 'ur face?

Bentleyworth the Mad Chimney Sweep: Pip, pip, that'd be smashing! God save our Queen, Parliament and the Commonwealth, cheerio!

I dunno, this might be the painkillers talking but I enjoyed both these issues for what they were, as lateral tie-ins to a lame event. In fact, one of the best things they had going for them was a minimal amount of hammers, end of IM 2.0 notwithstanding. Actually even with the hammer at the end I quite liked Iron Man 2.0. The art was cool, Sun Wukong, if that was his name, was a fun new character, in fact the immortal weapons are mostly new to me as well and I thought the guy John Aman(?) in this issue was interesting too. Little cuts to the
Fear Itself battle, but not too much. I've always liked both villains at the end, so maybe I'll read the next issue to see where it goes.

For IM 2.0: 8.5

I don't really expect to enjoy these Marvel event tie-ins as much as Spencer's best work elsewhere, if for no other reason than I don't read much Marvel at all these days. One thing, I wish someone had told Adi Granov what this issue was actually about or who was actually in it, but that's the nature of work-for-hire projects like this I guess. I didn't have any big patriotic feelings or anything but hey if some kids maybe reading this got to read some Abe Lincoln I'm okay with that. Would I rather they read Abe or Bendis? Hmm, let me think..

For SA: 7.5

When I had a choice between cheap HCs of Fraction's Iron Man or Iron Fist I went with IM.

You made the wrong choice there (and I love Fraction's Iron Man), Immortal Iron Fist is probably his best Marvel work, and has fantastic art from David Aja.

In retrospect I thought so too.

Nickvengers #13

So when it was announced that Bru would be leaving Bruvengers, my initial impulse was to drop the book but after some needling from Squid and the Ellis announcement I decided to get the St. Nick fill-in issues. After the .1 issue and reading this last night, total fucking mistake. This bored the shit out of me. Where the War Machine issue we also reviewed this week served as a jumping off point into the world of the Immortal Weapons, this floundered around in Fear Itself nonsense that I'm never going to care about. Hank's couple of snarky lines were nice but overall this was just dumb. Granted it wasn't as dumb as the people making the Ben Stiller movie comparisons, those people have no one to blame but themselves for watching Ben Stiller movies. Who fucking does that? Lametards, that's who.

Scott Eaton's work in this was pretty cool, but it suffered greatley from Frank D'Armata shiny people syndrome. Beast's Dum Dum Dugan mustache was bizarre.

Story: 2
Art: 5
Overall: 3.5

Sorry St. Nick. :oops:
