Oh man! 100 strips! Booyeah!! Go me! This means, as per my agreement with Tams, I will be getting a forum shortly. Maybe it'll be a big hit? Maybe nobody will ever go to it? Whatever! It'll be there! It'd be cool if everybody signed up and stopped by at least once just so I know how many people actually read this thing, you know? Yeah.
So, new comics! Let's see, this week we got Secret Invasion #2, and um... Invincible Iron Man #1! And... Batman Death Mask #2!! Yeah!!
Secret Invasion #2... Eh. It was okay. Very average. Kinda ruled out a couple people as Skrulls simply by the fact that they, well, died and turned green and wrinkly. Nobody we didn't know was gonna be skrully already. Nothing major here.
Invincible Iron Man #1 is a new series that's only purpose of existing is for people who just saw the movie and wanna jump right into an Iron Man comic. It's got a lot of the feel that the movie did, which is entirely positive, and Pepper Potts talks about thongs in the elevator.
Batman Death Mask #2 is gold. That series has me hooked. Who'd've thought Batman would look good mangafied? I wouldn't have thunk it. But the story is excellent so far, and I can't wait to see where they're going with this. The art is spectacular, and it's kinda neat, because even people who have never read a manga before in their lives are picking it up off the shelves because it's the God-Damn Batman!
