Title: Comic Book Day - May 1st
Post by: EmeraldWarrior420 on May 02, 2013, 05:16:22 PM
What did you get/order?

What I got:

-Age of Ultron #7 (very cool, it took long enough, but series has paid off)
-Earth 2 #12
-Superior Spider-Man #9 (Holy crap! This is already up to #9?!)
-Thanos Rising #2 - I'm not sure I like this. It almost feels like Thanos is being re-written into another character. Yes, Thanos is in love with Death and kills to please her, but he never came off as a sociopath, so much as he was power-hungry. In this, he comes off more as Cletus Kasady (Carnage's host) than he does Thanos.

I think your love of AoA is clouding your judgment of AoU
 ;)

Hmmm, scary. But then again, I have always thought Thanos to be written a little too non-sociopath, when that should've been highlighted more. I get what you are saying, but by definition - a person with a psychopathic personality whose behavior is antisocial, often criminal, and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience - Thanos is molded for it.

But I haven't read issue #2 yet, so it may hit me the same way it hit you.
 ;D

Went by LCS and picked up:

Shadowman #0
Thanos Rising  #1

This may have been before I started ordering the bundle.  Not sure because yeah I thought it was weird too.

I'll be darned.  Your right.  I checked the order and it's on there.  Looks like I'll need to ping them.

More pressure on me. Ha.
Honestly, it is NOT the bad Loeb that has been seen recently. This is the good Loeb that we all remember. And hell, even McGuiness' art is toned down from the over bulky to a more moderate and enjoyable style. It is really a good book. No stupid Sabertooth resurrection and no lame-ass Red Hulk punching the Watcher in this title (but Uatu is in issue 2) and besides, if you are getting GoTG, this is a perfect companion piece. Both titles are going to be heavily featured in the upcoming Infinity event, which I can't freakin' wait for.

Surfer coming back???? Pah-lease

EDIT - However, word of warning, if you are like me, a fan of Richard Ryder (hahaha that name ... always kills me), please note he is not in this book ... yet.
