Already Tired of Wednesday

Comics come late this week, thanks to a holiday celebrating the Labor Movement.

Dark Avengers/Uncanny X-Men: Exodus #1:
Matt Fraction's big summer crossover concludes! Will Scott Summers' plan work? Will Norman Osborn rue the day that he messed with the X-Men? Will the coloring of Emma's diamond form be brilliant or awful? After a disappointing last issue, I'm hoping it picks up here.

Incredible Hercules #134:
More of the INCREDIBLE THORCULES! I loved the last issue of this arc, and with the addition of a cover homage to The Graduate, this one looks even better. It took me a while to pick up this book, but now I'm really glad I did.

Nomad: The Girl Without a World #1:
I'm a sucker for anything involving Cap somehow, even as peripheral as this is. I'll take a look at it, for sure, but whether or not I actually buy it is sort of up in the air. Still, it looks like an interesting piece to the Cap puzzle.

The Marvels Project #2
Everything Ed Brubaker touches turns to gold. This project, in particular, seems like its going to be an explosion of awesome after last month's wonderful introduction. I know Jon wasn't that fond of it, but Epting's art on its own makes this book worth a look.

Wednesday Comics #10
Karl Kerschel!

A quick note on what I'm NOT picking up: Dark Reign: The Avengers. Part of it is because I'm already picking up several four dollar books this week, but the other part is that I'm simply tired of this Dark Reign thing. If I care about the character, I might pick up the book, but I mostly just want Norman's rule to end. Right now. It was a good idea, but it has become both detrimental to the stories within some of the books themselves and REALLY REALLY EXPENSIVE. It needs to end now.


  1. "Exodus" was bad-ass.

    As was "Dark Reign: The List: Avengers".

    "Thunderbolts" #135... not so much.
