I think it's just as good as the Knauf's IM: DOC run. Zeke Staine is the s**t.
 
I've not been reading the regular IM ongoing so I can't comment. I guess I just put my expectations too high or something for the series as I love Fraction and his Casanova series and his run on Iron Fist.

Just seems I can't really get into it. I like Zeke fine and all that, but this tech warfare angle just, I dunno, isn't really doing it for me. I mean we haven't really finished an arc or anything yet so maybe it's too early to label it a dissappointment.
 
I was disappointed in the issue of Invincible Iron Man I read because it was so incredibly similar to DoS, only it skewed a bit away from the intrigue and politics that, in my opinion, make DoS great. I wondered why two books covering practically the exact same stuff needed to exist. Obviously, my question's been answered now that we know DoS is becoming War Machine, so Fraction's comic should comfortably fill the void and give people all the patented Tony Stark *****ebaggery they could want. I won't be reading it, though. Salvador Larroca's art is terrible and, frankly, the bit that IIM skews away from the politics and over to Tony's personal life is a bit too much for me.

DARK HORSE COMICS
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #17 $2.99 (Dark Horse is only publishing one title this week? :huh: )

DC COMICS
AUTHORITY #1 $2.99 (Probably. I'm really looking forward to Wildcats, but this'll be a nice warm-up, I suppose.)
FINAL CRISIS #3 (OF 7) $3.99 (Bleh, I've not been enjoying this but I know I'm gonna break down and buy it in the shop because Aquaman is supposed to show up in it, plus I'm still kind of curious about where the f*** Morrison's going with it.)

KING SIZE SPIDER-MAN SUMMER SPECIAL $4.99 (I am confused as all hell about why this even exists, but I ain't gonna look a gift horse in the mouth. One last hurrah with pre-OMD, pre-BND Spider-Man and MJ vs. the Enchantress can't be too bad.)

It's seemed like forever since the last issue of The Twelve; I missed it. PWJ is the only one here I am the closest to dropping due to apathy if it doesn't shape up. A somewhat below average week.

No, I'm not confused about why more Spider-Man stuff is coming out, I'm confused about why they're releasing a one-shot packed with material that's irrelevant to Brand New Day. The solicit makes it sound like the King-Size issue is a bunch of pre-OMD stories. Why remind Spider-Man fans of the golden days before Faustian bargains that Marvel management has apparently decided to blame on that no-good, rotten wife of his when a lot of fans still aren't reading BND because they're so upset about what's been done to the character?

Yeah, I understood what you meant, I was just saying Marvel seems to want to dig anything and everything to fill out that extra week no matter what the time period the books are set in.

If that makes sense

For the same reason DC teases fans about better times with Nightwing, Kyle, Wally, or so on. Because companies will try to draw blood, or extra cash, from a stone whenever they can, and if that means kicking a section of fans when they are down, so be it.

Of course, to play Devil's Advocate, to pretend the pre-OMD stories and continuity never happened would be dishonest. Even if the mainstream comics mostly do.

Eh, not to me. I figured they'd want BND solidarity more than they'd want to burn off old pre-OMD stories.

Marvel editors did something that seems to contradict official policy?
