Really hard to get my brain switched back into Civil War II after spending so much time in the Valiant universe.
Only because it sucks.
Maybe it's because I'm reading all of the Tie-Ins but I haven't reached that opinion. I have issues with elements of it but I'm not hating this...yet.
Hey, I hope you don't get to that opinion. I would be shocked, but yeah, it could happen. I hope you enjoy it.
However, if you come away not understanding why Marvel gave Captain Marvel her own title after this, for fans that love the character, you wouldn't be alone.
Flash #21 - Yay
Ben Reilly: Scarlet Spider #1 - Meh
X-Men Gold #2 - Boooo ... F'n Guggenhiem is just not a writer I enjoy. I'm done. May flip through to the end next issue, but no reason to keep reading this horrible "look! We are super-heroes now" forced bull shit when Blue does it so much better.
X-Men Blue #2 - I am liking this. But maybe when I read Blue after Gold I am being false in my opinions? I mean if you smell dog crap and then you smell plain air, the plain air smells fantastic in comparison!
All-Star Batman #9 - Meh, just a book. It ties into the past few issues and reunites Jock and Snyder, but I was not very happy reading it. It just seemed like a story with too many bullshit twists that just seem off. Hoping the next arc brings the fun back in the series.
Weapon X #2 - As fun as issue #1 was, in an early 90's "SHARP METAL OBJECTS ARE COOL" kind of way this issue brings some more of the same, making me remember why I was starting to avoid comics around that time. Now true, the art is not as totally ridiculous as some of the early 90's art, even with Land as one of the artists, but the story is still the same as issue one in almost every way. The story moved slightly forward, ever so slightly, but I think I would have preferred issue 1 and 2 combined into a double-sized issue and I would have liked it more. Still okay, but not at the "Remender X-Force" level that this is trying to be, yet. Still better than X-Men Gold.
