    THOUGHT:
    52 Week 1 - The mystery begins to be answered as we get a look at what happened one year earlier. Definitely gonna be interesting to see how they pull this off; the first weekly comic in a looooong time.

    Amazing Spider-Man 101 - Morbius strikes! Great for the day and age it was done.

    Amazing Spider-Man 361 & 362 - Carnage's debut in the Marvel Universe pre-Maximum Carnage. Not bad, great art as ever and a pretty good story. Carnage is really an underrated character just because his motivations lack "depth". Ya ask me, that' what's so damn scary about him.

    Annihilation Super Skrull 2 - I feel a bit displaced in this whole event because of all the aliens. Hopefully, all these minis will make more sense when they come together in the end. Perfect for Super Skrull fans, though.

    Ares 4 - The Greek Gods get their own Ragnarok and it looks like father vs. son next issue. Can't wait!

    Cable Deadpool 28 - So, in yet another disregard to continuity, Flag-Smasher's back and no longer sporting the red skin and alterations he got back in Cap's title (where I also thought he died, but whatever) and Domino's been hired to find out why Deadpool's there. We get a nice short battle and some DP quips, and find out Cable's taking over the country! Definitely a good issue.

    Last Planet Standing 10 - Another MC2 event! And from the looks of things, this' gonna be a good sequel!

    New X-Men 26 - Finally, an explanation on Stryker between now and GLMK2. Kind of a cop out explanation, but it's better than villains who reform and revert for no other clear reason than they can. Yup, looking at you, Sandman. Anyways, it looks like the New X-Men are being whittled down one by one in this new religious crusade. Just hope they didn't jump the shark with this one.

    She Hulk 7 - Good art! Yessss! The only thing that kept me from enjoying this title fully! Anyways, the Starfox trial wraps up in excellent Slott fashion (was also cool to see an Avengers comic I actually own in there), but with Civil War looming the fun's just beginning!

    Spider-Girl 98 - Hobgoblin strikes! May and Venom team-up! The Buzz! Ladyhawk! Raptor! Defeated! Hobby's definitely gonna make some new powerful enemies..and he's gonna wish he hadn't! Why are you NOT reading this book? This is everything you all want in a Spidey book! Right here! No Other! No Iron Spidey! No stingers! Just pure, classic Spidey.

    Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends 1 - Good comic! Felt just like the cartoon in every way. A must for any fan of the show.

    Spider-Man Collector's Preview 1 - It's so odd to read about James Cameron's Spider-Man movie. Outdated information for sure, but fun to read and see what worked out and what changed between then and now.

    Spider-Man The Final Adventure 2 & 3 - Spidey's Portland adventure continues as he tries to find Tendril and make right what he believes is his fault. Art was decent, but the story was pretty good. I got the first issue when it first came out, gift from my bud's parents for some reason I forget. All I need is #4 and I can finally find out EXACTLY what happens.

    Superman 652 - Superman makes his return, but it appears his powers more closely reflect his Golden Age counterpart. Permanent or just slow in coming? Time will tell. The Puzzler was a pretty interesting villain. A corny gimmick, but nicely done. I just hope it's not a setup that despite the absence things're just gonna fall right back into the original status quo. That would just be...boring. I wait and see.

    Thunderbolts 102 - Some character development on Joystick (a remnant from the CLONE SAGA, thankyouverymuch) as we learn she may not be playing the side we think or assume she is. When this boils over, gonna be a big boom.

    X-Men Deadly Genesis 6 - And the mini that couldn't wraps up. We get Vulcan's full origin, we get the full story behind the original New X-Men, and why Xavier's no longer at the mansion. It was a good story despite it being more shoe-horned continuity, but it suffered due to the crappy PR Machine at Marvel. Brubaker, who weaves a hell of a mystery, couldn't defeat the fact his solution was already broadcast before the first issue ever came out. Wanna see what he's really capable of? Pick up Daredevil.

    Because a lot of people don't like the character Spider-Girl for one reason or another.

    beast wars 4
    cable and deadpool 28
    jonan hex 7
    Gijoe americas elite 11
    ares 4


    thought
    Beast wars 4-Great series to bad it had to end. Really best writing Furmon has ever done and the best mini I have read in awhile. So many things happen Grimlock fight, time traveling used as a weapon, Ravage looking like he is ready to strike back. Well they said it wont be an ongoing:( :down But we will get another mini by the end of the year:) :up: . More beast wars is better than none. 10 out of 10

    cable and deadpool 28- Really funny recap page forthwall breaking at its finest.Art still lacking I think but 8 out of 10

    johen hex 7-havn't read it yet but im sure its good sadly this is my last issue of this series sense Luke is leaving no point to reading without this fantastic artest.:(

    GIjoe- the return of snake eyes really sweet fight between him and the joes and wait 2 more issues until the return of Cobra comammder. Wonder how they will bring snake-eyes back to there side 9 out of 10

    Ares-Yet again oeming brings us another mini that is epic truly great I really feel sorry for him and missing his son.:( It also seems we might get to see some eastern gods.And im sure there will be a great father vs son battle. Keep it up oeming.:up: 10 out of 10

    Can we please get Craig Kyle and Chris Yost on some more X-Titles, seriously New X-Men is the only X-title worth reading these days.

    Yes, Nightwing came out today.

    As for mine, I only want to specifically comment on Deadly Genesis. Why the FRACK is Quicksilver at the funeral? Are they THAT inept at producing SOME sort of continuity?

    Anyway.

    She-Hulk#7-Great issue, the art is good I guess. I think ive grown used to the overly cartoony art on the series though. Starfox is a pimp, and nobody did a barrel roll which was disappointing.

    Ex Machina#20-What can I say, one of the best comics in the biz, though its sad to see
    Journal die.

    Superman#652-Great issue, Superman gets some of his powers back and gets reintroduced into the DCU. Lex seems very angry and Lois well shes dealing with it. Jimmy Olsen looks like hes making a comeback with his Chief.

    52#1-Good intro issue. Its clear this will be quality work from the get go. Seeing everybody was great though its tough to say how each of the roles will play out. The Question has big plans for Montoya apparently. The issue focused a lot on Booster though.

    X-Men: Deadly Genesis #6
    Miles upon miles upon miles of retcons and mischaracterizations up and down the street, and this is what we end up with? The villain doesn't get defeated. Good guys died. Everyone is sad and betrayed and despairing in the end. This is our payoff?? This is our story??

    Far and above the worst X-story that I've read in the last year. And that's saying a lot.

    (0 out 10)


    52 Week One
    Very nice start. Good to see the aftereffects of the Crisis playing out in full scale here...the world is saved and the disaster averted, and yet the story goes on.

    What's best were the little moments. Bart talking about Wally's twins. Wonder Girl being comforted by Empress. Themyscira House being replaced by Kahndaq.

    At first I thought it was strange that Nightwing was there with the rest of the heroes considering he's supposed to be with Batman on their little love cruise...I mean, uh, training sabbatical:O. But then I realize, it's probably Jason Todd! Loopholes yay! What's harder to explain is why the heck Mera is with Aquaman. Isn't she supposed to be missing after Atlantis got blowed up or something? Also, why the poop is Green Arrow without his mask in front of all these reporters?

    But anyway, looking forward to week 2. They're bragging that they're going to cram every single member of the DCU into this series...after only one week, I believe them.

    Its odd to see any of the Aquaman family in any title considering the weird direction his own title has taken.

    It is possible for both of them to co-exist.

    Mera wasn't missing. She was stuck on land when Atlantis got destroyed. How Aquaman got to the point it's at OYL will be explained in 52. Something bigs gonna happen on the west coast during 52.
