    It's Butch Guice, which means it should be good. But it looks kind of like he colored it with crayons. I don't really like the coloring style, but the image as a whole isn't bad.

    Maybe the suckiness of the new Cap costume is detrimental to good art.

    Maybe. Maybe Guice was like, "What is with this shiny bull****? Joke's on you for making Cap look like ass, Marvel! Ha, crayons!"

    I just managed to audibly roll my eyes when I read that tarantula preview. It was actually rather impressive (the audible eye rolling not that terrible story idea)

    In the solicit they sound confident that Kick-Ass will sell pretty well (although it could as it has two big-name creators on it). If I'm right, I don't think the first issue has even come out yet.

    It hasn't. But a lot of people like Millar for some unknown reason, and JR Jr.'s art is always a treat.

    Yes, he does. It's just seems odd to me that he'd change his name in the middle of a run.

    Not to me. I thought it was pretty terrible.

    Thoughts:

    - The colors on that Guice CA cover suck.

    - I may try KICK-ASS, although it is horribly silly that now the term, "KICK-ASS" will be a trademark. Really, where does it end?

    - I commented on TLD #2 in the topic.

    - YOUNG AVENGERS PRESENTS #4 chugs along, but we've seen this before.

    - BLACK PANTHER may not have long for this world, as it and MS. MARVEL are steadily falling from the Top 100.

    - I still fail to see any purpose for FAIRY TALES books other than keeping Cebulski from doing better projects. It isn't like X-M:FT or S-M:FT sold well, or even decently. Ugh.

    The DD Annual,which this issue is most likely a follow up of,was better than some of the current issues of the ongoing.

    For once,it was nice to have a solid DD story that featured an ending.Bru's Jailbreak and Europe arcs were really good comics,but this current arc which started back in #95 has just been going on and on jamming Mila down our throats.

    I'm looking forward to the special,BT is a very interesting character.

    Brubaker has been saying for a while that corporatism would come into play in this series, what with Lukin/Skull being probably the richest man on the planet now; it'll be interesting to see what happens. And Guice is doing covers now; interesting.
    Kinky.
    This looks like an enjoyable throwback (and the well-timed release of the preceding chapters the preceding month is great marketing, too).

    Heh, the Thing's face on that FF cover is hilarious. It's not like Johnny and Sue getting shot is gonna amount to anything.

    Looks pretty good.

    - Surprised that red vs green is happening to soon in Hulk but we'll see

    - I HATE the fact that Ultimate Omega Red is a Spidey villain. Lord knows the UXM could use some good villains

    - Ultimates 3 :up::up:

    -That UFF cover is beautiful. I :heart: Dell'Otto
