Jon Says:

Yeah, I’m still reading it. No, I’m still not part of the large group of people who absolutely adore it. Also, I’m sorry, but “Newmazo” is just dumb. It’s not cute or clever or kitschy.

Jon Says:

I really need to reevaluate my buying habits. I don’t just buy this book despite not particularly enjoying it, I buy two copies of it. Still, that B cover is pretty great.

Jon Says:

One of these days I have to get around to reading Immortal Hulk, but in the meantime, I figured I’d check out this first issue of the new series. At least in this the Hulk isn’t a spaceship piloted by Banner, and I do generally enjoy Johnson’s work.

The first issue was a decent – if a bit slow – start, it’s a book featuring some of my favorite characters, if not necessarily my favorite takes on some of them, with art by Nicola Scott. We’ll see how it goes.

Evidence shows there is a link between Arclight’s military history with the pirates who have taken control of a boat along the coast of Thailand and the island destination where the contents of the boat were headed.

  1. I don’t think I’ve seen’t a bigger gap between cover art and summary than on that issue of Titans.
