For me, it's rather all about Tony Stark...

Arrogance and hubris all around. Wink

Oh, Okay, I got ya. When you said "the two Marvel books" in the comment, I thought you meant company wide.
I thought you were saying that the AXE series itself was the arrogant aspect.
 Cheesy

I was like okaaay
 Cheesy Cheesy

Sure it is a money grab, but arrogant?  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I got ya.

Not a lot read and not a lot of good either  Undecided

************************************

Olympus v2 - Had to finish it off. Waste of time. Sure it is nice to read some Johns stuff again, good dialog and all, but the title, while technically accurate, was misleading. I wanted Mythological Gods and the monsters of myth and all we really got was some of the monsters... but even that was kinda bland. Didn't hate it, but certainly not a must read. The opposite really.

Daredevil - So Matt
was poisoned, then put outside to face a shitload of "baddies". Poor Matt. And Electra continues training her new apprentice.
Not a ton of movement, but good stuff

Sgt Rock - Oh how I wanted to like this, and perhaps had I not been reading the BPRD I may have ended up enjoying this more, but I have literally been reading a very similar story/plot in the current 1946 stuff. Hahaha. Oh the timing of it all. Not continuing here with this title. Not only because I am reading the same elsewhere, but I am enjoying the other so much more. But man, I would have loved to have read this prior to see if I liked it better.

One Bad Day: Two-Face - Wow what a difference. I absolutely loved the Riddler issue but this one... honestly... was a chore to get through. They (DC) switch creative teams each issue and I can honestly say, with only this issue as a base, that I am not a fan of this writer. Maybe her other stuff would hit me better, but this was not a good introduction. I think I recognized her name, Mariko Tamaka, from one of the Batman series (Detecive before Ram V? or Batman prior to Chip?) so maybe you guys here can tell me if she is a good writer or if maybe it was one of those "just didn't hit for me" situations. Either way, damn sure hoping the next one is better!!!!
