1 must have been Clor, dressed up in the real Thor's clothes... yeah, that's it.. gimme my no-prize, marvel--

You deserve it, Hyperstyle.  No other explanation is as good. Marvel....  ::)

Hyperstyle, Beta Ray Bill will make an appearance in next month's first of three Thor: Secret Invasion comic.  In fact, I'm pretty sure he plays a central role.  And Odin did get around, for sure.  All those major deities did.  Though, in Frigga's case, he did take her to be his wife.

I think you're right about Thor's intentions regarding Loki.  Rather than charge in with accusations, I think Thor's waiting this one out a bit to see where Loki's taking it.  But, man, does Loki look seriously evil in this book or what?  Yeah, Coipel does indeed draw some pretty stunning women and Kelda's a knock out.  William's a lucky dude.  Did they actually take it further?  No way of knowing at this point but, if I were William, I might seek Thor out for a little counsel on the matter.

Don't normally post here, but damn there were some good books published this week.

JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #11 is just brilliant.  One of the best comic book stories I've ever read.  My friend Dwayne McDuffie is going to a great job on this book, but this standalone issue raises the bar for all of us in this profession.  Gene Ha, who always does a great job (his work on TOP 10 was fantastic) goes to the next level here. Is he sticking around?

WORLD WAR HULK is also great.  Greg Pak is doing a fantastic job.  And JR jr...nuff said.

NEW AVENGERS is killing it. Bendis is in top form and Yu is also genius.  Damn it's a good book.

CAPTAIN AMERICA is so good it's hard to believe it's sustain like it is with the title character not returning any time soon.  Amazing.

THE SPIRIT - Darwyn Cooke deserves every award in the world for reviving this character PERFECTLY.  Frank Miller is going to have a hard time making a movie as good as these issues.

ULTIMATE POWER - JMS is so damn underrated.  And Greg Land is killing it.

THUNDERBOLTS - it's a one shot but well written and Ellis' reinvention of the series is just genius.

BATMAN - Morrison and Kubert continue to produce a classic run on the character.

THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD - Waid really figured out how to make a team up book work, which to my knowledge has never been done.  Far more readable to me than COUNTDOWN or 52 or any of those sprawling storylines. With Perez in fine form.


Really not much else to say about Captain America.  Your one sentence really sums it up.  How is it possible to sustain a truly excellent book absent its title character?  I don't know but Bru and Epting have the magic formula.

Really glad to read your props on New Avengers.  Lots (and I mean lots) of people seem to dislike Yu's art and, while art's a subjective thinig, I just don't see it.  His style seems so perfectly suited to this type of subterfuge type superhero storytelling that it's really a great match up with Bendis' writing and also just outstanding on its own.

I loved Brave & The Bold this month with Batman against the Legion, especially Braniac 5!  Each of these issues takes what's happening with different team ups of characters but combined inexorably revolve around and spiral down into a finale that's sure to be a blast.  Love the Waid/Perez combo!

I loved Civil War: The Confession.  One of the best books to come out of the entire Civil War series.  Maleev draws a great Iron Man and I loved seeing Tony Stark crying like a baby.  It's about time he showed some real, raw emotion and realized the devastation his stance has caused.

Reggie, just curious.  After saying the Man-Ape would never be seen in your comic he did, actually, appear in the issue with T'Challa and Ororo's wedding.  What caused you to put him in the book after all?

Re:  Omega Flight- good stuff, though I wanted it to be a double-sized issue.  I can’t wait to see how the fight continues from here.  Sasquatch should be pretty messed up.  I am wondering, though—the Wrecker was wrecked by the New Avengers a while back, so I’m curious as to how he got loose again.  Could very well have happened in all the Civil War mayhem, I guess (I guess the whole ‘Raft escapees’ plot has been all but abandoned—but I digress…).  I’m waiting to see the exact circumstances on how USAgent and Arachne are introduced to the team (side note—Arachne apparently gets ‘handled’ by the teenaged newbie Arana in the Ms. Marvel book—wha?!).  I’m hoping that Oeming doesn’t portray John Walker as a mentally imbalanced super-Rambo.. and where is Simon Walters?

Re:  Fallen Son/Wolverine- another good script by Loeb; I wanted the confrontation between Crossbones and Wolverine to be much longer; I dig how he goaded Crossbones into shooting him.  Nice touch adding Dr. Strange into the mix; though I wonder what Iron Man realistically thinks he can do to combat him.

I agree.  Not sure what Shell Head's thinking.  Doctor Strange was a nice touch as was Daredevil.  While I hear you on Crossbones it was great to see Wolverine make short work of him.

Very cool.  In Superman's earliest days he fought against slum lord and wife beaters.  It makes sense that, in his radio show, he'd battle the clan.  So, so much better, though, that this radio broadcast so severely hurt the real clan!

My review of Black Panther #24 can be found in our review thread at this link:

RE: DD#93

ME TOO! Sam Me too! totally blown away! Great comic and a great arc! Extremely well written.

p.s. didn't really want to intrude in your reviews thread. I would rather it be just your post and/or other reviews so please delete this post after you read it.  I'm just happy to see someone else is reading DD here and enjoying it as much as I do.
Goat, glad you liked my DD review and you feel the same way about this arc.  Everyone should be reading this comic!!

I saw it over the weekend with my wife.  Incredible movie.  Very disturbing and highly recommended.

Though Frank is penciling Incredible Hulk I think I read that WWHulk would be a book unto itself drawn by John Romita, Jr.  This is going to be just awesome.  Jade Jaws is going to lay down some righteous retribution on Iron Man, Mr. Fantastic, Dr. Strange and Black Bolt for sending him off into space and onto the planet Sakaar.  Will his new wife join him on the field of battle?  I sure hope so!

Marvel promises this is not going to be nearly as cerebral and convoluted as Civil War.  Just some good old fashion punching, smashing, fighting and fun.

I can't wait for this!!

I did an All-Star Superman review last week, and you can find it here:

And I agree.  It's an outstanding book!

Guggenheim's completely tearing it up on Blade and gave us one of the best Wolverine story runs ever.  It's no surprise to me he could take anything JMS did and improve on it like he's doing with Hyperion vs. Nighthawk!

I'm really liking this series a lot.  I'm a big Blade fan since the Tomb of Dracula days of the 1970s.  The Wesley Snipes version of the character never did anything for me and I'm glad to see him returning to what's more like his comics roots.  Plus the single self-contained stories per issue are a good way for new fans to jump on.  PLUS Chaykin's art is outstanding!

Morrison's X MEN is all time great to me.  I know there are a lot of haters...whatever.

Well, his X-Men run never worked for me but I'm loving what he's doing on Batman.  Other DC books I'm reading include the new JLA, Dini's Detective Comics, All-Star Superman (that's Morrison, too, I believe), Richard Donner/Geoff Johns on Action and Tales of the Unexpected with The Spectre.
