The Deadpool/Thunderbolts arc I thought was great. In my opinion it had some of the best Deadpool-style humor I’ve read from the character and of course lots of action. I mean I recall after Osborn thinks his team killed Deadpool, Deadpool shows up in his window with a sign that says “Respawn LOL.”

Batman & Robin #8 was kind of hard to follow what was going on in some of the panels. I think it was laid out poorly.

Is that even a Hulk though? I mean it just looks like an enormous black guy. Plus don’t they already have “Nerd Hulk”? Cool about Ghost Rider though.

Eh personally i hope Morrison can place Bruce in Justice League missions and keep Dick Grayson in Gotham. I know it's not going to happen tho. Morrison just loves Bruce too much.

It didn't help Bruce had a line from Dick either lol, but yeah people had to take a look on the utility belts to see a difference heh.

Hulk manifestation! Basicly we got 3 Hulks.
Bruce Banner = Loeb is writing him.
Nerd Hulk = Clone of Bruce
African American Hulk = Nobody knows who he is, except he's Bruce's old mentor and was a stephen hawking-type handicapped guy until he did the Hulk serum on himself and is now a perma-Hulk.

Time for a history lesson!

Sonic the Hedgehog has had four different and unrelated animated series and one movie. The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog (often called Sonic SatAM) are the oldest and first aired in 1993/1994. The Nostalgic Critic sums them up quite well in this review, but to put it simply Sonic SatAM is widely regarded as the superior show, in no small part because it actually tried to be serious at times. Two OVA episodes were made in Japan in 1996 and released as Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie. Although featuring a decent Sonic vs. Metal Sonic battle, I personally found the movie to be quite silly. A third cartoon series entitled Sonic Underground aired in 1999/2000 but, from what little I've seen of it in short Youtube clips, I wouldn't recommend it. And, most recently, there is Sonic X which features most of the new Sonic cast and is probably the most popular and well-known of the Sonic series despite being panned for its English dub. Many recommend watching it with the original Japanese audio.

It's a surprisingly fleshed out comic universe.

Astonishing line expands

This is weird. A Spider-man and Wolverine comic? Apparently



And then Astonishing X-Men back to issue #1?



That too. But god, that Astonishing X-Men preview makes me cringe. Especially Emma Frost and Armor. On a different note, Mohawk Storm returns!

Oh, and DZR, I read WWH#1 and I thought the art was good. Hopefully JRJr's covers for Avenger's have just been flukes and not an unprecedented drop in quality.

Well we're getting some GL issues this week so then you'll have your Blackest Night stuff. We'd talk about it for ages tho in other threads, even suggesting Blackest Night stuff for 3.3 (when it wasn't released) and whatnot.


Half-elf-Dragon:
You know i gotta wonder why it took so long to make such a simple idea that sells so well. Spidey and Wolvie!

Also some promotion for Mark Millar's upcoming Nemesis:

Marvel Team-Up (vol. 1, 1972–1985) #117 Spider-Man and Wolverine vs Mentallo

Marvel Team-Up (vol. 3, 2005) #1-2 Spider-Man and Wolverine vs Paul Patterson

Before you say "But that is still a versus comic even if they are on a team" I present you with this:

Spider-Man/Wolverine (2003) #1-4

"A Spider-man and Wolverine comic?" doesn't really convey the notion that it is restricted to monthly titles.

How about ""A Spider-man and Wolverine monthly comic?"

He can discuss the subraces and classes of comics himself, anyhow moving along, this is kinda comic related:

Is anyone a tad bit worried about the Captain America movie's action? Wolfman movie didn't have the best action out there, sure it tried to be more horror-action where you can saw the viscious deaths but at the end of the film the action gets abit... Yeah the angles just don't work that well if you ask me.

Oh well atleast they're getting the Invaders in the movie to make sure it's not US Propaganda patriotism.
Green Lantern #51 preview!

They mentioned Sonic in how Starcraft came around. Sonic was a great game but it didn't really have a story to it. They wanted a story, history, and lore for their game.
