So what's up with Doctor Strange. I saw that magic was dead. I know Marvel doesn't petter on that type of charcater as much as DC, but it seems like that would be considered a big deal.

No work tomorrow so I'm going to spend the rest of the night and all tomorrow catching up with comics.

Magic users are kinda scarce in the MU at the moment, Wiccan is in Supreme Sorcerers but it's a future one, Wanda is dealing with witchcraft and aside from some references, no one kinda talks about it.

Similar to God King Thor, no one has really addressed it.

Yeah, it's really good, but some hate it because Slott is going for a Doctor Who vibe with the character.

Ah hopefully it were up a future storyline and maybe even an event. Bit weird that this isn't effecting anyone like Ghost Rider. Even Thor tip topes the line between Magic and Alien depending on the writer.

Just caught up on All Star Batman and it was pretty damn good. This arc ended strong expect for one detail that seemed pretty out there(The fact Two-Face turned off clouds though his cell). The art takes a hit in the third issue when it depicts Bruce's face but other than that the art is above average. The art is the best in the rain or in a fight. I would love to see more Beast in other comics. He was awesome.

And now those delays do not matter and Hawkeye is still incredible.

Silver Surfer doesn't really rely on the rest of the universe so it can be evergreen much like Hawkguy.

Great team dynamics, strong artwork, effectively uses sub-plots inside the main arcs to build reader interest and actually come to a real conclusion in the last story arc. Its all the things people say they like about X-Men team books, so why not give it a read?

also you can see the context for this hilarious pair of panels



Should I read Ultimate X-Men up to that point? I've been meaning to regardless of whether or not I should.

I remember enjoying, but it was among the first comics I read as a teen. I certainly did not have a keen eye for quality at the time.

I also got a duplicate Nurse Harley or nurse Kelly Sue DeConnick, as I like to call her if anyone wants it. Let me know.

Captain America: Sam Wilson

The Ultimates (and by extension The Ultimates2)
The New Avengers (which just got done, but U.S.Avengers is following it up)
The Mighty Thor
The Unworthy Thor
Black Panther
Infamous Iron Man

Any other books I've forgotten, or haven't been going long enough for me to reasonable recommend them. Or I'm shaky.

If nothing else, the scene of Prof X getting pushed down the stairs was the first time I felt inclined to edit a picture and attempt to make a gag post on a forum. Classic panel.

The whole of his run has been more Doctor Who-y than the actual show has been for the last season or so. I really dig it.

The tag line on the cover is very "Who-like" as well. It's something like "Anywhere...and Everywhere! Hang On!" Sounds like something that Doctor would say right before taking a new companion on a trip in the first episode of a season.

Plus it's be nice to read an entire line that lasts for more than twelve issues.

I'm sad to say that the most I remember of Ellis' Astonishing X-Men run is....

This cover with Emma Frost, which even at the time weirded me out.
