Young Avengers Presents #6: Hawkeye This was a good character driven story. Much less sappy than the Patriot issue i read. I'm a sucker for these kind of historically referential stories if they are done right. And Alan Davis on art always helps. Liked it so much i stole it from Wanyas, which he claims was his plan all along.
Nova #15 - Galactus continues to rule. I thought the idea of riding up the energy shafts into Taa II was cool, and i like the repercussions. The shadow/despair creature part was a bit long but overall this is still good. Looking forward to the Secret Invasion crossover and seeing Nova on his own without the Worldmind for a while.
Guardians of the Galaxy #3 - Three issues in, this is feeling a bit samey. Still good, but it needs to break the format of having the team giving a debriefing of a mission where things didn't quite go as planned and they nearly got killed. Also, i'm not a big fan of the original Guardians of the Galaxy, so while i thought bringing back Vance Astrovik was cool, i'm a bit wary about where this is going after seeing a version of Starhawk this issue.
Secret Invasion #4 - This issue felt more like an interlude, possibly due to the narrative style at the beginning. Is it possible there is too much going on at once and not enough space to devot to moving the plotlines along? Anyway, it was all made up for when Nick Fury shows up with his giant @#$&% gun.
And hey, Yu's art is... not terrible when the colorist isn't trying to make everyone look like a zuvembie.
