Go fuck yourselves now, you bandwagoners.
Hold yer horses there, Chris. You don't get up there to Lee & Kirby's level that easily, not in my book at least. JH has yet to resolve any of the many subplots and conflicts he's keeps adding to. Like I've said before, I can't really judge his mega-arc until something has been resolved because ending things is hard and many good writers struggle with weak and/or convenient resolutions. But over its course so far there have been some strong points and some lousy issues and subplots too, although I'm impressed with the strength of the last few issues it wasn't very long ago there were about as many weaker issues involving Black Bolt and the Universal Inhumans. And no one can answer my question about where The Maestro went after Reed brought him along, as far as I can tell, which although it will probably be addressed at some point is still a plot-hole nonetheless.
All that being said, I am hoping he's just finally and consistently caught his stride on the book.
On another subject, aren't the Celestials just sort of dumb? All they do is talk like robots and shoot energy blasts, is that really so amazing or advanced? They are kinda huge but not that huge. And if Galactus crashed on Earth like he did in this issue, wouldn't there be a huge seismic event instead of a small crater?
