After an extra day's wait, it's finally new comic day! Unfortunately, it was a week with a lot of crap books. Let's take a look-see at what I purchased.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN # 565
My interest in this book has always been a bit sporadic. I’ll pick up an issue here or there if they start a new story arc that sounds interesting, but I generally never get more than one issue in at any given time. That said, this is a really good issue. I bought it because I heard there was some Spidey and Daredevil team-up action. That’s probably the best part of the book, but the story in general just really makes me want more. I’ll give this book a few more issues, if they stay this good.
CAPTAIN BRITAIN AND MI: 13 # 3
This is, yet again, one of the consistently best books on the shelves. Honestly? This is the only Secret Invasion tie-in I’ve been following that I am really enjoying.
GREEN ARROW/BLACK CANARY #10
Another win for this book. I’ve heard some people complain that this series was running too slowly, and I think that this issue will be a pleasant change of pace for them. The whole book is pretty much one big fight scene, so you can’t really go wrong. Also, Plastic Man is there, so that’s a guaranteed fun book.
SECRET INVASION # 4
ULTIMATE ORIGINS # 2
I didn’t pick up the first issue of this series. In fact, I’ve never read any of the Ultimate Universe books. But, well, this book had Captain America on it, so I figured it was worth a try. Surprisingly, it’s a pretty decent read. Bendis still hasn’t really impressed me with his work for Marvel, but this is far from his worst. I’ll probably give the next 3 issues a shot.
YOUNG X-MEN # 4
This series fucking blows. Aside from Rockslide and Dust, I couldn’t have less interest in this team of mutants. That said, the inspiration for Ink’s new tattoo is the funniest goddamned thing I’ve read all week. You’ve bought yourself one more issue, Guggenheim.
