They're calling it New Avengers? Seriously? And how, exactly is it not "JLA-ing" the Avengers when they've put Spider-Man and Wolverine, Marvel's biggest cash-cows on the team. Oh, and something called Avengers Finale is coming out, just to gauge an extra $3.50 out of people.
So Captain America is going in an all-new direction...where he fights the Red Skull. Who has the Cosmic Cube. Again. Only Marvel could present the diligent maintenance of the status-quo as a daring move...
A Warren Ellis scribed Iron Man may be enough to get me to buy an Iron Man comic despite my total antipathy for the character. It depends on how cringe-worthy the art is.
They're calling it New Thunderbolts? Seriously?
Dear Marvel: putting out an 8 issue, $3.50 an issue mini-series like Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes on a bi-weekly basis is a sure fire way to get any casual readers to "wait for the trade."
Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Book of the Dead: Yes, do let's revel in the "shocking" deaths that have occured over the past year that will surely be undone within the coming year.
Fantastic Four now appears to be regularly priced at $2.99 now. Just one more reason to try and talk Pete into dropping it...
Alpha Flight features the return of Flashback. Notable mostly for being John Byrne's shameless rip-off of an Alan Moore character from Captain Britain. So, a terrible writer is using a character created by a mediocre writer which was "inspired by" a good writer...does the mediocrity of Marvel know no limits?
She-Hulk is still the best book Marvel publishes.
I steadfastly maintain that after Grant Morrison left the book, no further X-Men books were ever published. Therefore, the fact that Marvel is soliciting more X-Men titles must be some sort of strange hallucination on my part.
The Ultimate family of titles look to be amusing diversions.
Ah, I see that Spider-Man: India will be published in English...now I can see if it actually is as terrible as all the original annoucements made it sound.
NYX is cancelled. So, that means, what with all the various rescheduling the series has undergone, we can probably look for this issue sometime in June.
