Ultimates #5?
Hulk 5?
Venom: Dark Origin #1?

:twisted:

It's Amazing Spider-man Family #1 ain't it?

Also i'm glad Secret Origins's picking up, all the post SCW stuff so far has been dull as dishwater.

Obviously, it's Hulk #5. As far as Chap's concerned, Loeb is the Shakespeare of comics and the Red Hulk is a stunning reinterpretation of Iago.

what, you think i'd actually spend money to read JM DeMatteis write Spider-man? with a back-up by DeFalco, Frenz, & Buscema? you think i'm that obvious? :roll:

(of course i would and of course i am...you got it in one ;-) ; that only leaves 2 DC books to predict)


and i agree. i hated the Alpha Lanterns story and Secret Origin has frankly bored me, but it finally picked up this week. i'm excited about GL again.

Nightwing clearly and the final one's harder, it's either Final Crisis, Robin or Trinity since you're definitely not a Kool-aider and therefore probably not into Crisis or RIP and are a Busiek/Nicieza-aider i'm gonna say Trinity #10.

Nightwing is certainly a definite. shocking, i know... :-D


and i actually AM into Batman : W.T.F....errr, R.I.P., and Nicieza is actually writing Robin, so that's a possibility. ;-) and i am LOVING Trinity, but i've tackled that book every week, so maybe i should give it a break...

at this point, it's most likely gonna be FC, just since this issue is supposed to be the one Grant promises that the shit will really hit the fan. but we'll see...

There was no need to worry. You should feel bad that you had a lack of faith in him. This book has been great since he took over and Jaime is an awesome character that McKeever writes really really well. For that matter he writes Red Devil really really well also.

The Annhilation Prequel issue sucked ass. It bored me to tears, but then I heard the miniseries leading up to the event were awesome so I gave the main book a shot and it was awesome. I'm hopeful that the first issue was like the prequel and that from here on out it becomes as awesome as Annhilation. Although the art isn't going to be nearly as good.

DC's site says it's Dixon on Robin.

I hope it does I've been as disspointed in FC as i have been post SCW GL.

Also DiVito is teh shiznit, Marvel completely underutilizes him.

Did you miss Dixongate about a month ago? He no longer works at DC in any capacity

You can't trust DC's site for information on DC's books

Spider-man by JMD. Awesome.

I also decided I like Busiek on creator owned stuff. Otherwise his stuff is way to generic.
