I hated that Ragnarok crap from a few years back so it was nice to see it start fresh. A bit decompressed but you can tell they are most likely building to a big picture scenario.
- How many issues is this up to?
- Is Coipel still the artist? He's fucking fantastic.
- JMS is still writing, yes?
- Thoughts on this book?
- Issue ten is out at the end of the month
- He is but there's a Djurdjevic two parter issues 7 and 8.
- He is indeed.
- Slooooooooooow and uneventful but still quite well done and with stunning art.
The Mighty Avengers HC Vol.1 by Bendis and Frank Cho. Cover price $20. My price, again, =5 bucks. I have not been a fan of the general overall direction of the 616 the past few years and I lay a lot of that at Bendis' doorstep seeing as most of it all really began with Avengers Disassembled. But I've wanted to check out something by Frank Cho for awhile though and seeing as it was a HC for only $5 I thought what the heck. Man am I glad I did. I realize it was a lot of the stories from the last few years I didn't like that set this up but I gotta admit, this story kicked ass. Over-the-top adrenaline fueled super-hero action with a pretty fun end of the world story. I didn't expect to enjoy it so much. At the beginning I'm like who in the eff is Ares? By the end I'm like hell yeah...ARES! Questions...
- Are Bendis and Cho still on the book?
- How many issues are there?
- Yes, I know it's a comic and requires suspension of disbelief but what the hell is up with Tony Stark's physiology that he can liquify and then turn into a woman?
- How exactly did Sentry's wife not die? I feel like I missed something there.
- Not really important but why is Wonder Man wearing his 80's threads again?
- Bendis still is but Cho was too slow so the next story is by Bagley followed by alternating Maleev and Khoi Pham Secret Invasion tie-ins.
-Issue 16 is out next week.
- Extremis essentially fused his body with technology, Ultron manipulated this technology to transform him.
- The Sentry's powers still aren't enttirely clear, he thinks that he brought her back but some people think it's soemthing more skrully.
- Because he looks damn good in them.
