August 28, 2013 10:07 pm Wow, I didn't expect this issue to be my potw, but Jason Aaron did it again! It's just not fair to other comics how good this is.
May 20, 2013 1:27 pm I think that Marvel, despite their faults, have at least tried to give their creators room to do what they want. I mean, they let Dan Slott kill Spider-Man right after Spidey's fiftieth and right around Stan Lee's birthday. That's pretty bold and I can't see anyone at DC outside of Morrisson getting away with that sort of thing. Also, the early promos for Marvel NOW advertised the creators even more than the characters.

May 11, 2013 8:15 am Yeah, Iron Fist is a different character.
February 14, 2013 2:07 pm It did. I think Fox still has Elektra for a couple more years, though. That should revert too since it doesn't look like they're doing anything with the property.
January 15, 2013 10:33 am Admittedly, I didn't read Soy's last two issues, the ones after Rios. I have heard his art was much better in those. I'll see if my LCS still has copies of those when I pick up 9. What prompted me to get Captain Marvel was DeConnick's issues of Avenging Spider-Man, so I was expecting a much more straightforward super hero title both in writing and in art. Can't fault them for my expectations, I guess.
January 14, 2013 8:44 pm I think Dexter Soy is done, which means I'm back. I'm actually excited about this book again.
November 26, 2012 10:56 am Both. There were triplets! The first was super-strong, the second froze things, and we never met the third. Her name is Ali Larter and I think she would be great.
October 29, 2012 6:32 pm I feel like I've been waiting for this issue forever. I enjoyed Zero month but hated how it disrupted the flow of the story.
