EEEYYYYYY..... I thought i'd celebrate this, my 2,500th Post on the SHH! boards, by telling you all what i've loved about Marvel recently. not gonna get too deep, cause i only have about five minutes before i have to leave the house and go to the Pub. Bendis/Maleev on DD: I only read the 'Decalogue' arc, i read the solicits for the first couple of issues and it intrigued me - i loved the whole idea of going into the victims of these crimes, rather than keeping the focus on Matt/DD the whole time. Nt quite sure who the 'new villain' is that was promised to us lol. THE ULTIMATES 2: love it. LOVE it. Everything's a giggle, everything's incredibly well thought out, and compelling. Who's the traitor? NOBODY KNOWS! NOBODY! Ultimate Secret: Might be taking a freakin' decade to get published, but the two issues i've read so far have left me wanting so much more.. New Avengers: Now, despite not being a long-time Avengers reader myself, i can see the problem a lot of people would have with the new team. It really does seem like a popularity contest, meshed with 'lost or unknown heroes' - Spidey, Wolverine et al mixed with Luke Cage and Sentry. But i like it. I wish McNiven could stay on the title FOREVER - Finch's Pinches are starting to annoy me (the look he gives each human face). But, back he comes for Ronin's introduction... YOUNG AVENGERS: Best new thing to come out of Marvel in the last year or so, if you ask me. Great new characters, an interesting background soon to follow, and a decent mix of personalities and possible new villains. Would love to see a YA/Runaways crossover. HOUSE OF M: (this includes all the spin-offs), I'm enjoying the story. THat's not to say i'm not dreading what's going to be changed about the MU afterwards, but i really am enjoying the story. the way it's panning out. I like the fact that Scott is taking charge, whereas before it seemed like it was oging to be Logan's show. Scott being a leader to the group makes more sense. I liked the emotional moments with Cage and Peter Parker - especially the Spider-Man splash page in #5. Enjoyed teh FF: HOM mini, and am still enjoying the SPIDEY: HOM mini. (on a non-Marvel note, i'm also enjoying Supergirl and and a bit disappointed by All-Star Batman and Robin, though i am still intrigued to see if Bruce ends up learning from Dick.) that's all! I'd be interested to learn what others are enjoying too.
