SuperMegaSpeed Reviews

Ms. Marvel #16 - Adrian Alphona is back. I miss Takeshi Miyazawa but wasn't as disappointed by the return of Alphona as i thought i would be. He actually does have a good style for this book. The defense pwners set-up by Loki were sufficiently weird, for example, and i do like his comical facial expressions and poses. I did kind of read this thinking maybe i could drop the book, since it's all set up for an event that isn't directly about Ms. Marvel and which she won't have any control over. But then i got to the last page and i was like, yeah, i want to see the interaction between Kamala and Carol Danvers.

Daredevil #16 - Really great. Loved Kingpin's art collection. Also thought the verbal sparring between Daredevil and Kingpin was good. I am still kind of holding out hope that there's a twist coming with Shroud. His whole deal used to be that he's a good guy that pretends to be a bad guy. So it would be nice if he wasn't just crazily obsessed in this story and it was all a ruse. But we'll see what happens. It would have been nice to get some kind of information on Julia Carpenter in this issue. I have no idea what her current status is, but my immediate thoughts while reading this were "She's a Spider-Woman! Why can't she defend herself?!".

Shit Happens NOW!

Paul O'Brien discusses Secret Wars at the halfway point.

The most alarming thing to me is that he thinks it is going to be like Age of Apocalypse, where Marvel's regular continuity will return when it's all over, with maybe a few characters from other publishing lines dropped in, like Miles Morales and Old Man Logan (?!). "Alarming" in the sense that i've already sort of let go. 'Just when i thought i was out', etc..
