shinysylver: (Avengers - thor - tired)
Apparently all the comics ever came out this week and I read most of them. Lol. Without further ado here are my thoughts on all of them plus this week's Supernatural:

Hawkeye #8 - This was so good. I honestly can not get enough of this comic. The joke about Clint always getting mistaken for Danny Rand was hilarious and straight to the fans. Kate was amazing as usual because of course she wasn't going to be stupid like Clint. No prison for her. I lolled at Tony being concerned about the moral reputation of the Avengers...not because it wasn't accurate, but mostly cause it is ironic. lol. And my heart ached just a little when Hawkeye admitted to himself that he's being an idiot partially because he is scared of a serious relationship with Jessica and this is a way to end that. A bad way of course. I am interested to see how things work out with the Kingpin showing up.

FF #4 - This is such a fun comic. I mean in one issue they managed to touch on a few super important things, but mostly it was just She-Hulk having a date. It was seriously soooo good, though. The confrontation between Scott Lang and Alex Powers was so perfect. I never read the Power Pack, but I really like Alex in this book as the 19 year old, experienced hero compared to the rest of the Foundation. He was right to tell Scott that he was letting his grief over Cassie unduly influence him into asking the kids to figure out how to kill Doom. I love that Alex also pointed out the Foundation is a bit questionable even at the best of times. The Moloids and Bentley trying to ruin Jen's date, but accidentally making it perfect instead was awesome. The confrontation between Old!Johnny and Darla was heartbreaking. He doesn't remember her because there have been so many girls. Ugh. Basically awesome comic is awesome.

Young Avengers #2 - Oh Loki, let me count the ways that I love you. I unapologetically love this comic because it's fun. It is very different than the prior run of the series, but that is what happens when writers change and the vision changes with them. I still love the characters and I like Gillen's style here (so much more than on Iron Man) so they have me for the long haul. Also, the box pages? Brilliant. My mom wants me to make copies of them for her (she always flips through my comics with an eye to the art because she has an art degree).

Guardians of the Galaxy #.1 - This issue is basically a retelling of Star Lord's origin for new readers and it is very well done for what it is. I have no prior experience with Peter Quill, but after reading this I feel connected to him emotionally and want to know more about him and the team. I'll definitely check out the actual first issue and not just because I am a Tony fan. :)

Uncanny X-Men #2 - I know it's not always the popular ship, but I freaking love Scott/Emma because of the way they communicate. I love when characters talk about things in open and honest ways. I mean they are so mature together. In this issue they even discuss the fact that they shouldn't get back together because too much has happened and Scott hates himself too much to be with anyone right now. And her telepathy is on the fritz so it really was them just talking openly and honestly. So freaking honestly and respectfully. It gave me so many feels. Other than that, I hate the new costumes--Emma should be wearing white not back!--and I am interested to see what happens when they face off with the Avengers next issue.

Uncanny Avengers #4 - This is my guilty pleasure book and I am still loving it ridiculous narration and all. This issue could basically be summarized without spoilers as: The one where Shiny has major Thor feels because Thor is the most perfect person ever. I mean other good things happened in the book. Rogue was funny, Havok was pretty cool, Wanda was badass, etc. but basically I came out of the issue with hearts in my eyes for Thor...not that that is a new phenomena for me. I scanned a page to show you all why.

Journey Into Mystery #649 - I liked this issue a bit better than the previous ones, mostly because there were cameos by several different heroes, but I still don't really think this series is for me. I can't seem to find a place to emotionally connect with Sif which makes me sad considering how much I want to like her. Part of that is the arc they are writing, so I keep trying to stick with it until this arc is resolved, but it's getting harder care. I mean I shouldn't find Ock!Spidey and Namor the best parts of this issue. lol.

Deadpool Killustrated #2 - Basically this is for people that want to watch Deadpool go on a "metacide" rampage killing all the classical literature characters that inspire the comics. I find all the fourth wall breaking amusing and enjoy the way Deadpool sees the literary characters as the Marvel ones they inspired (Ahab as Thunderbolt Ross for example). It's just some nice, out of continuity, excessively violent, entertainment.

Supernatural - I liked this ep quite a lot. Overall I liked the way they did the Prometheus and Zeus bits although I kind of question the idea of making Artemis have romance motivations. That is pretty out of character. I did love that Sam knew what he was doing and I love the faith I am having in Sam these days. But, let's be honest, my favorite part of the episode was Dean praying to Cas at the end. It was so open and honest and just, when Dean has those monologues like that it kills me. The relationship between Cas and Dean is so complex and moving. When he looked around to see if Cas had appeared at the end? Well I was crying. lol. I'm very glad that even without actually being in the episode they managed to make Cas a presence.

So what did you all think about any of the above? What else have you been reading/watching? How many of you need a box of tissues after Batman Incorporated #8?
