Look at me being prompt with my reading this week! :DIndestructible Hulk #6
- Walt Simonson's art is amazing. The cover is beautiful and I LOVE the way he draws Thor. I love the old school approach to his design that they are using in this story. Of course that design is being integrated by having it be a Thor from the past (or an alternate universe, I'm not sure yet.) I'm glad we are finally returning to our lab assistants and I hope that we learn a lot more about them soon.
But basically, this issue is all about the last page. Seriously, here is a scan:
Red She-Hulk #64
- So I'm just going to say it. Betty and Aaron are the best duo in comics. (Yes, better even than that
dynamic duo!) Seriously, I love the way they play off each other so much. They work well together, there is humor, there is support, and it is all just so much fun to read. I really, really love this series and appreciate that the story stands on its own with good characters and good art. I love the character designs and I really like the coloring. I just love it okay? How about that disturbing take on Mt. Rushmore at the end? That does not bode well. At all. All New X-Men #10
- This comic is so good. I can't even. It's perfect. The showdown in this issue between Scott's team and the Jean Grey School felt like it was building into an epic West Side Story-esque dance off between Logan and Scott. That is just how I like it! Lol. I have so many feelings about young!Scott and the way people are treating him. I just want to hug the baby. So, the cliffhanger? Jean is totally the one that is going over to the other school. She heard them talking about how Emma was a powerful psychic so they couldn't infiltrate and now she is going to try. She's probably hella curious about a lot of things, too. Also, Logan's expression there means it had to be Jean.Deadpool #7
- I really enjoyed the 1980s mockery that was this issue. I actually enjoyed the entire issue and laughed a lot...then felt like maybe it was wrong that I did considering the plot. Oh well. The Peter bits at the beginning and the Cable
bits at the end were the best parts. Also, Deadpool in a sweatband.Age of Ultron #4
- Well all of our heros are finally on the same page. The thing I like about events like this are the way they throw heroes that don't normally interact together. It's interesting to watch. However, I'm starting to get to the point where I just want to see how this even is actually connected to the "real world." Poor Luke. I'm kinda glad they didn't show us his nuclear bombed body though. Also, how exactly did they all get down to the Savage Land? Was Storm carrying all of them for like 8 days? Also, hey Pietro! I rarely see you. Thanos Rising #1
- I did not expect to ever use words like "adorable" or "precious" to describe Thanos, yet while reading this I did. This issue showed his childhood and made me feel for the guy. And the art somehow made his dead eyes tragically expressive. I'm going to have to check out more of this one, since I don't know much about him and he's going to be pretty important over the next few years. So, what do you all think? What did you pick up this week?
