I just got done reading New Avengers #31. Arrggghhh! What kind of crap was that nonsense that this issue was a must have? That it would be on par with Captain America #25? What a bunch of over-exagerated hype.
I pretty much want a refund, but I don't want my retailer to pay the price.
In better news, I have been reading my Manhunter run the last few days and it holds up beautifully. Good stuff. All of you who haven't read Manhunter need to give it a try. Go grab a trade or pick up some back issues. We need to get some support going again to get the book back. I miss it terribly.
Countdown still hasn't gotten quite there yet for me. I am still waiting to see Kyle Rayner, and I am wondering why Donna Troy has been paired up with Jason Todd. The Mary Marvel and Jimmy Olsen storylines do interest me, and I hope to see them warm up sooner then later.
Otherwise I am pretty bummed. I read Strangers in Paradise #90 and loved it, but kept feeling sad because it was the end. How Terry Moore has held up so well during such a poignant and emotional time is beyond me, because it rips my guts up. I am hoping to read that series again this weekend and in the next few weeks.
Bottom line: pissed about New Avengers, sad about Strangers in Paradise, and hopeful that Manhunter will come back. Definitely undecided about Countdown.
To top it off, I am sore and irritable from working out so much this week. Hand me the ibuprofen!
What are your thoughts on this week's comics?
