$4.99 price? Great, if Starlord picked that, everyone would just groan about the price the whole time.

It's an annual, depends on the page count and possibility of pointless backup story.

Y'know, I don't think anyone even mentioned Bendis' oral histories in the rear of Avengers #1.

I love it when Marvel puts tedious old comics and awful Nomad stories in with my books. Love it.

Just wait until someone writes a cosmic noir, and you'll love it.

Probably, yeah.

Cosmic is my least favorite sub-genre. But I'm not a big fan of space stories in general.

I have read a lot of Philip K. Dick, though. I like his work because he uses the sci fi setting simply to explore really interesting concepts and he doesn't bog down in technical descriptions. It's almost incidental whether a character has a ray gun or a space ship. He'll note that the protagonist is an alien and then provide almost no detail of what he looks like. I love it.

I've heard many good things about that title. But I really don't read any superhero books anymore.
