FYI: DeadLord will also be reviewing Siege this week so check in on Monday to see what Deadfett and Starlord have to say about it... and Black Night for that matter.

I reviewed BN #6: http://brokenfrontier.com/reviews/p/det ... st-night-6

I feel like a traitor. What the hell?

With Iron Man having screwed up his stuff, loki back local, and cap back... it is no wonder he cracks. I also thing this is a little compressed, I would guess we witness about two to three weeks of stuff in this issue from the time loki talks to Norman to the end of the issue that is (not the battle). Also, I have felt that Dark Reign has gone on way longer than Norman could have maintained his composure. I like it. I like it a lot.

I think what is missing is a signature moment of Norman cracking, I think that would have made it seem smoother in the comic, to be honest I am nit picking a little because I really did like this

I mostly agree with this, Bendis ended this issue in a perfect spot to leave you wanting more but I think a little more detail would have made this better imo.

corrected back matter available at marvel digital, helps explain how the DA took out Asgard so quick.

this. House of M is a decent read that I've enjoyed reading while Christos gage gets to fill things out more and more in that universe.

Dissassembled is hands down the worst, force fed garbage that Brian ever wrote. Though because of it we got Young Avengers so...i'm indifferent.

But I'm so glad I'm here for another trip down the Bendis Brown Highway.

Put on your boots boys, we're going to wade through another one. :roll:


You mean this book was written by Bendis and I touched it without putting on latex gloves?

Compared to the British Teens, we're all elderly.

Here's my review:

Terrific issue!

Thought it was great, really did.

While it did read pretty fast I was alright with that as both Secret Invasion and Dark Reign were drawn out. So this pace was more than welcome! Siege being only four issues will most likely be like this, with the rest of the story being told in the tie-ins. To me this only means the tie-ins will be that much better (hopefully).

Gotta love Ares. Did you read his DR mini by Kieron Gillen? If so, you know where I am coming from. Here Bendis continued what I felt Gillen gave us - an Ares we can like! He felt like Maximus from Gladiator to me when rallying the troops! Heck, he more than likely mentored Maximus as Ares is the god of war!

I dug the Sentry stuff as well. We all knew he was the one who could "take on the immortals" when Baldur was speaking to Loki. Still, turning the page and seeing Bob busting through Asgard itself was awesomeness! Then he saves Norman's hide and takes on Thor!

Speaking of the thunder god, guess we know why JMS bid Marvel goodbye, lol. He got HAMMERED! Or so it looks. Add to this the ending with Steve Rogers and the inclusion of Fraction's Invincible Iron Man Stark:Disassembled arc (which has been very good, imo) and we get a hint of the return of Avengers Assemble!

I thought the art was great as well, particularly in the above mentioned pages with Loki and Baldur. Loki looked bad-arse!

Things seem to be moving quick with the Siege of Asgard and I think readers will be rewarded when all is said and done - or destroyed!

And Punchy, IC at least had a story.

You're lucky I wasn't on your first podcast or I'd throw a hissy fit for not being included! :lol:

This board has seriously gotten pro-Marvel in the last year or so. When I started up here, there was a LOT of Marvel hate. It's gotten much better, though there are still a few people that seem to hate just to hate. On both sides. It's kind of depressing.


PS: I probably wouldn't have had a hissy fit. I just always wonder about my impact on stuff like that.

Actually you strike me as level headed about DC and Marvel. Good and bad in both companies.

Not like the other three who throw poo on the name just to fling it. ARRRGGGHHH!
