Name: Jimmy Guikema

Bio: I am a high school alternative teacher, and am working on my Masters Degree in History. I got into comics in high school by picking up an issue of Exiles and Nightwing on a trip to Waldenbooks. The issues hooked me, and from their my addiction grew. I found a local shop, started a pull list and have enjoyed comics ever since.

October 20, 2011 1:00 pm I was really hoping to see the new line-up for the post-Fear Itself status quo, but it looks like we have to wait until next issue to see who makes the cut. The Jarvis/Wong interaction was pretty funny though.
October 18, 2011 10:40 pm I like this, but I think I am going to drop it after this issue. My pull list is getting too big and while this is good I am enjoying most of my other books more.
October 18, 2011 10:38 pm I've actually liked this book a lot during the Fear Itself tie-in. Despite the main series dragging for me I thought that Fraction used this book to develop Tony's role in the event really well, and the process of making the weapons has been very entertaining. For some reason drunken dwarves cursing in runes hits the spot for me.
October 18, 2011 10:34 pm This series really surprised me with how much I enjoyed it.
October 18, 2011 10:29 pm I agree with you Natebot, I want to give this a chance, but if it doesn't grab me quick I'm dropping it
October 18, 2011 10:25 pm After hearing a lot of good comments on the first issue, I'm picking the book up. I really like that DC is releasing reprints of the first issues on the same day as the second issues release. It is a great way to try a book that you missed out on last month.

October 14, 2011 1:28 pm When I saw AT-ATs and AT-STs in the fight I got really excited! I don't know what it is about those walkers but they are just awesome!
October 13, 2011 1:42 pm Gillen did a great job laying out the motivations for these characters. Why Psylocke is on two teams, and why Storm stayed with Cyclops makes sense now. The reason that Wolverine went to Iceman was something I would never have thought of on my own, but in hindsight makes total sense. I also really liked the bit with Hope and why she acts the way she does. Very well done all around, but I do agree that the tribal metaphor was kind of weird.
October 13, 2011 1:28 pm This issue was really disappointing for me. It was basically one giant fight, and that is not what I want from this book. This felt like it should have been one or two pages in the next issue.
