Bendis writing Dr Doom :dread:


Is Doom wearing the Iron Man suit?

I hope it's basically an Iron Man armour version of his usual Dr Doom armour. I don't think he's been seen in that since the end of Secret Wars. As far as I'm aware he's just been wearing a suit and tie so far.

Bendis is like Brexit. Nobody really wants it but nobody can stop it.

Bendis has his strengths but judging from past experience, writing Doom isn't one of them.

That big Image summer sale has started on Comixology. Picked up some volumes of Deadly Class to catch up from where I stopped, as well as the first volume of Tokyo Ghost and a few more issues of Paper Girls.

Has anyone else read Wonder Woman Earth One? I read it over the weekend and thought it was dreck. What's actually there is probably alright but it felt like there was a good twenty or thirty pages just randomly missing so the story has no sort of rhythm to it and the characters all feel underdeveloped.

Compared with Azzarellos New 52 stuff it just seems even worse.

I liked it but as you say it ended far too soon. There wasn't a third act.

I don't think it need twenty pages at the end in one block but rather spread out through the book. It felt like reading a book with either printing errors or with some pages stuck together.

**Reads Civil War #3 spoilers**

Yep Bendis is still a hack who doesn't get half the characters he writes (and doesn't care since he keeps doing it).

God so much stupid in this event.

Top marks to Marvel for once again giving a big entertainment news outlet a press release giving away a huge spoiler in their current big crossover event before the vast majority of people have even had a chance to read it.

I care so little about this event I haven't even bothered pirating it, let alone buying it.

I'd like to think that Hawkeye killing Banner ends up being what causes the events in that Inhuman's premonition to happen which leads to everyone trying to stop him, but I'm almost certain Bendis doesn't have the self-awareness for that.

Still making my way through Marvel material from the start of Bendis New Avengers. Finished Secret Invasion, enjoyed it more the second time round but I only read the main series plus the MA and NA tie-ins so skipped out on all the filler stuff. Going to start Dark Reign next which I remember loving at the time, see if it still holds up.

Also read the first volume of Hellboy today (Seeds of Destruction) love the gothic art style

I'd recommend the Black Panther Secret Invasion tie-in. It was great.

Nice thick paper cover for All Star Batman. The issue was good too.

Did Duke ever get a super-hero name?

I was excited to see Crazy Quilt appear last year and then he got killed off in the same issue. :(

All Star Batman #2- I like that Snyder seems to be trying to break the record for most DC rogues in one story.

Off the top of my head in two issues they've had:


Two Face
Killer Moth
Firefly
Gentleman Ghost
Penguin
Black Mask
Great White Shark
Cheshire
Copperhead
Killer Croc
King Shark
Amygdala
KGBeast
Mr Zsasz



Fun energetic book so far.

Jessica Jones #1- This was great. Felt like a missing Alias issue and makes you remember how long it's been since Jessica was used correctly.
