COMICS! |OT| July 2015. Okay for everyone, unless you're a DC or a Spider-Man.

Please let the phone be busy because nobody is asking for that kind of Gambit tier nonsense. There are more rational voices to contact.

I'm really struggling to get behind Ritter as Jessica Jones. I think she's going to do well, but she doesn't look like the character in the slightest.

In other news... Roddy Piper died. Damn, this has been a tough couple months for wrestling fans.

Fuck no what omfg shit. God damnit....
 
Wonder Woman #19-#23: End of Act II. Everything seems to be falling into place. Diana's actions seemed a bit inconsistent. If it was meant to show her moment of weakness, the impact and and resolution seemed a bit rushed.
And why leave the First Born alive if you are willing to kill War to stop him? Was she just using War because he was about to die anyway?

War had such a great arc. That "What soldiers would follow you old man?" moment was so awesome. Though we could see it coming, sad to see him kick it so early.

Animal Man (Lemire/Foreman) #1-#6: What is this? How do I sleep tonight?

I was all prepared to do serious japes about how Marvel fucked up re: the Thor hip-hop variant cover, but man.

It's a real fucked up time to be a bisexual Marvel fan.

Okay, from that same Alonso interview, holy fuck, what's happening at Marvel

Axel Alonso: The "All-New, All-Different Marvel" announcements encompass books that arrive in stores between October through February. We have incredibly exciting stuff to announce in the next few months -- titles, artists and writers -- building to a crescendo for Black History Month.

who the fuck says that, who thinks that's what was needed

it's like, who's ready for Marvel's big event for 2016: Black People
 
So I'm back to working off the newish issue backlog. Fortunately DC went on a week break discounting comics and I'm finally past convergence. Looking forward to the return as DC hit the ground running.

So rapid reactions
Spider verse - dull and could have been told in a 4 issue ASM arc
Hawkeye 22 - great finally. I didn't want to wait 6 months for MU so bought it on CMX at cover price but it was worth it.
DC Bombshells - good start. Lovely art
Alex & Ada - ended ok. Not a lot of fanfare. Felt pretty clinical.
Ms Marvel #11 - a strong end to the arc. One of the more enjoyable arcs of the series so far. She's learning
stump town - so now it's a trend. Rucka is using this book to invent the craziest premises for a PI comic ever. The start of the coffee arc is promising.
Lazarus #17 - great issue. The previous arc introducing the serf characters is paying off as we get a wider perspective of the war
Letter 44 - my interest is on life support. This book is losing steam so fast.
X-o manowar #37 - hahah what? That's the least exciting ending to an arc ever. So much good build up and meh
Star Wars #1 - really good. Not a retread but feels like something the movie characters would say and do. Not the easiest thing to pull off
 
SHIIIIIIIIIIIT. IST is sold out of Hellboy Library 6. Had to order from Amaze-on.

Are you just doing Hellboy and no BPRD?

And I'm not going back to quote posts but:
1. That Madvillain parody is DOPE
2. Is there anyone who reads comics who has Iron Man as their favorite character? I don't get the push for him in ANAD

That's why he is getting the push

Why don't they give the push to someone who really needs it like Rick Jones? Time for the A-Bombs moment in the sun. I mean fucking Gambit is getting a movie so anyone is game these days.
