    Gotta make the cuts somewhere. And if it's been delayed for months after just two issues, I'd probably hate it just on principle even if I were reading it by now.

    Hmmm...none of the shops I go to had it. Or they sold out before I got there.:csad:

    It's been a while since I read the first issue but I didn't know they were in a whale. I don't recall them specifying what the creature was.

    I know issue #1 sold out. I don't know about #2.

    If I had to guess. That looks like newly acquired Marvel exclusive artist Daniel Acuna to me.

    Doesn't look like his art style to me.

    It does to me. Look for some of his pencils.

    Yeah, I'm not seeing it, either. Besides, I doubt he went exclusive to work on a miniseries.

    Well considering Marvel's track record with exclusive artists not really doing much of anything, I wouldn't be surprised.

    To be honest, my first thought was McGuinness, especially on that last panel. But we all know he's not fast, at all.

    Hmmm, maybe. But Jeff Parker really isn't a huge draw, so I can see them trying to throw a name on art. Not even a big name, just a name. Like Bill, or Travis.:huh: :huh: :boba: :bh: :brucebat: :hehe: :grin:

    The first panel echoes Acuna a lot.

    Casey's name is a big enough draw to warrant a new guy artist.

    Maybe 5 years ago. Today? Not really.

    He totally is. As evidenced by Iron Man: The Inevitable.

    It actually came in at #64, which is pretty damn good for an Iron Man miniseries with an, at the time, no-name artist.

    Looks pretty good. I'll give it a try.

    And I would say that person that Nighthawk is fighting looks more like one of the Brother's Grimm than a Hellfire club grunt. I mean, why the hell would one of THOSE actually get up from a shot from Nighthawk? The mask has a skull like design, Hellfire flunkies don't have that. If it isn't a Brother Grimm, it is someone else with a skull motif, who isn't Crossbones, Red Skull, or Taskmaster.

    You're correct. That's the Brothers Grimm.

    D-list villains based out of Cali. Fought Spider-woman and Iron Man (Rhodey) when he was on the west coast.

    Powers come from the costume. They can do a bunch of crazy "magic tricks".
