October 15, 2012 1:52 pm I thought this book was solid. I don't get the John Cassaday artwork being put down though. I thought this book looked great. As for the way the Red Skull looked, if anything its the best the Red Skull as looked in a long while, more true to the way he looked originally. I'm not a Cassaday fanboy here, this is probably the first book I've bought that he's done the interiors for. I'm just saying this was a good effort, if he's capable of doing even better than I can't wait to see if he brings that to the table in his time on this series.
March 8, 2012 1:30 pm I dug it. Solid artwork inside and out of this book. Since it is the start of a story arc, I wasn't expecting to be hit over the head with princesses and high action, so following Ali Baba and his imp was entertaining me. I good set-up and I'm glad they didn't charge an extra 50 cents for the wrap around cover.
February 1, 2012 2:07 pm Eh, this not that big of a deal. Everyone needs to calm it down. The Watchmen story will remain intact, these mini-series won't change that story. You can choose to ignore these mini series or you can choose to read them and judge them on their own merit. No one is holding a gun to anyones head and forcing them to accept these books.

January 10, 2012 10:54 am I saw a mother last month doing Christmas shopping in Target, walking while breastfeeding with a baby larger than on the cover also very impressive.
October 27, 2011 12:29 pm I love it. This is how comic book covers should be. I wanna see more of this!
May 13, 2011 4:54 pm These preview pages are a nice taste. The characters look damned cool, I love this era as well so new heroes with a pulp fiction slant already have me interested. I'll give it a try for sure.
May 10, 2011 9:42 am I'm enjoying the artwork in from Deodato and Chaykin. And the 1950s avengers story is pretty cool. Maybe they need another title, Old Avengers.
March 29, 2011 12:02 pm This costume just doesn't make sense for the Black Panther or T'Challa. Good luck being climbing and leaping quietly as a jungle cat in those combat boots. And what the hell is he keeping in all those pockets on his belt? Is this the new Panter Utility Belt?
March 9, 2011 8:27 am Sounds good, more Catwoman is always good IMHO. If it takes a little extra time to make the book a quality one, I say take the time. I waited a lot longer for a book than this.
