SPOILERS BELOW:








Azrael #1 - sucked

Dark Reign The List - Hulk - so, Normy is trying to get the Hulk to come back quicker?  I don't get it.  I must say that "Ms. Hand" is one of the greatest names of all time.

Deadpool Merc with a Mouth #4 - sucked less than 1-3, but still sucked

Dark Wolverine #79 - I decided when the switch over came to give this book a chance through #80, and although it turned out a lot better than I expected I will not continue on after the next issue.  I really wanted to like Daken just because the internet geeks didn't and usually they have their heads so far up their asses that they don't know a good idea until in is in an oversized overpriced late hardcover that Alan Moore approves of, but in this case they were not totally wrong.  Daken is not interesting enough to have his own book.

Incredible Hulk #603 - I loved this issue.  It was funny - Skaar ordering a milkshake in a biker bar is WIN.  Touching (in a demented way), reveling, and shoed how not only does Skaar have potential as a character, but also how Daken can be a well used supporting character.

Amazing Spider-Man 609 - clone stuff, BRING ON 611

X-Men Legacy #228 - good issue, I don't remember how Gen X resolved the whole Emplate thing back in the day and I really do not like the art.

Thunderbolts #137 - not a great issue at all.  Remender does not give a great first impression, not does this book make any kind of sense in relation to what's going on in New Avengers right now.  As to the in fighting in the group, I'm going to say it, I feel like I have been reading the same drama since Ellis took over and Osborne ran the Thunderbolts.  Resolve something already!

Dark Avengers #10 - As usual great book.  Venoms medication problems, Osborne's craziness, and Moonstones...hormones make for great drama.  Call me pervy all you want, but ever since Thunderbolts #1 I would have no problem if Moonstone wanted to turn me into a project.

Cowboy Ninja Viking #1 - HOW THE HELL DO YOU PASS UP A BOOK WITH THAT TITLE!?!?!

Liberty Comics #2 - meh.  Self-important drivel for the most part

Ex Machina #46 - Still a good book, but the end game that we are in seems a bit rushed and I feel that a lot of these issues with his powers should have been dealt with earlier.

Hellblazer #260 - good interlude issue from Miligan's over all story.  Great art in this issueSimon Bisley can take over any book he wants to.

The Stuff of Legend #2 - I told you last week to go by this and I am telling you again.  This may just be my favorite comic of 2009 and it only has 2 issues.  I loath double dipping, but when enough of these volumes have been produced to make sense, I will buy any over sized HC they put out of this and read it to my kids.

About the Author - GHERU


RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time.  RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage.  Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write.  RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them.  RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor.  You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
