I took a quick peek at some of the later chapters and it seems like the fallout of the Dark Angel Saga is being continued...
Did I say something controversial? I am only on issue 3, so let me know if I am wasting my money.
So I've seen CBR's opinion... what does ComicGAF think about bi Loki?
Personally, I think it's fine and suits his character, but... I'm probably not gonna read the book anyways.
Cap feels like its kinda in a holding period until Nic Klein shows up and Rick can do this Dr. Mindbubble ish he's been wanting to do for years
I feel kinda similar about Thor waiting for Esad Ribic to come back next year and we got this movie tie-in thing with questionable artwork in the meantime
honestly, i couldn't get past the first arc of uncanny avengers. between cassaday's mud art, the havok fanwanking, rogue acting like a damn fool, scarlet witch being racist as fuck and the godawful knockoff claremont narration. it was "how not to write a good comic 101." pure hackery
Nah, I would definitely say it presumes at least some familiarity with the characters. I'd at least read the first few trades first; Gaiman himself said something similar on Twitter.
Anyone here playing Arkham Origins? I think donie has it, right? I'm really liking it so far; admittedly it's basically Arkham City 2, but I loved that game so I'm happy with this.
Anyway, I'm about 2/3rds through the story according to the synopsis percentage, and I just saw something really cool.I thought that was a nice touch, incorporating comics lore into the game world.I'm on the mission in the Gotham Royal Hotel, where you're trying to reach Joker in the penthouse. After the explosion and you grab on to Vicki Vale's news chopper then land on a nearby roof and fight some goons, you can see a couple of statues on the roof that look like Talons. They've got body armour and the eyepieces and everything.
Also, there's a new Copperhead in the game, a woman. Apparently Geoff Johns said that he liked her enough that he wants to introduce her into the New 52. Has anything more been said about that? I don't recall seeing any mention of her recently. I don't even know what book she would appear in. A Batbook? Justice League? No idea. I do quite like her design, although it's a bit cleavage-y for my tastes. I think she's suffering from Catwoman's Broken Zipper Syndrome; her vest has a zipper on but it's stuck right below her boobs and looks ridiculous.
Arkham Origins discussion
Yeah, Thor's first transition issue after Godbomb was fucking great, but this Malekith shit is wack
The two month wait is gonna be hell but it gives me more time to appreciate those Corinthian-teeth panels, as well as that gatefold at the end.ROBOT SANDMAN
are the areas interesting at all? Are you leading me into a sewer pipe?
Theis probably my favorite level out of all three games. That level and its aftermath were amazing.hotel
Yep, basically the current arc is a direct continuation of the Dark Angel Saga. I love it, but it seems to get a lot of unwarranted hate by X-Men fanboys for some strange reason.Uncanny Avengers
So this is pretty much the REAL continuation of Uncanny X-Force? Boss.
Can someone recommend me a good comic from the New 52? Been out of the loop for a few years and want to get back in.
