You didn't mention Uncanny Avengers in your article.

I picked up All-New X-Men and thought it was pretty cool.  Bendis fit a lot in, though some of the characterzation feels "off".  Love the art, too.

I also picked up Captain America #1 today.  It was interesting though it hardly grabbed me.  I will give it a couple of issues, though.  So, it succeeded in bringing back for a couple more months at least.  I love Romita, Jr. but some of his panels looked rushed and unfinished.  I'm not sure if that was him or Klaus Jansen.  They've worked together a lot and are usually pretty dependable.

Still, all things considered I would agree that Marvel Now is off to a great start.  I'm very dubious as to the Avengers Arena, however.  A series that seems to consider frequent deaths as a plot point usuallyt turns me off (see Craig and Yost's New X-Men).

 Great read, Joel! 

Mom digging a number of the Now! Titles, Iron Man #2 was excellent and Thor left me stunned from how awesome it is. I didn't pick up Indestructible Hulk; any opinion on it?

What happen to Supurbia? It was suppose to get a relaunch in the fall but none of the shops around here seem to know anything.

Great article.


Trust me CyanideRush, the Indestructible Hulk is a must. Sure Hulk working for Shield might  be a bit different but it is a million times better then the run before where Bruce Banner was a nut job...for the first time in 30 years of comics of the Hulk I wasn't interested in the character, sorry but Jason Aaron's run of the character was just horrible (made Loeb's run like the Mona Lisa).

ll-New X0The uncanny Avengers is also a must, great art and story, so is All-New XMen (it's Bendis so, of course it's good).

 Enough with the Marvel NOW orgasms.  Your article trashes the New 52 because of convuluting the universe, yet you praise the Marvel Mutant mythology like it is sooooo simple to follow.  Really? Did you read your own synopsis? If i wasn't a DC/Marvel comic fanatic, there is no way in Hell I could have followed 80% of what you were saying. 

Both companies have MAJOR issues. The number one issue is GREED: "lets start over at all #1s", or "lets have another major universe changing cross-over event! Yeah, that will bring in the readers!"

@SinisterPryde I did actually review Uncanny Avengers, it was just a separate review a few weeks back. It's floating around in the Comics section somewhere. Also, the Comicscape from a few weeks ago was centered around the Marvel NOW Deadpool #1. I haven't read the new Cap yet, but I'm excited for it.

@Decepticons2 Superbia #1 hit shelves this week!

@Cyanide I loved Idestructable Hulk as well. Very cool new direction.

@ObiWannaJones I think you misread my article. I didn't praise Marvel NOW because it was simple, I praised it because it's progress. Every new Marvel NOW book is tied into the events of AvX, and all of them immediately feel like we are in a new era, instead of business as usual. As a lifelong comic reader, that is incredibly valuable.

Marvel is such a mess right now. I am holding out hope that Fantastic Four and Spider-man will rise above the continued crap that is Marvel.

How is Marvel a mess when all books are starting new stories and new teams of writers and artist?

joelr 11/24/2012 10:44:06 PM

Seriously, Marvel is as focused as ever. Every major book has a clear direction.

That's why I'm asking cause some people don't appear to see that...
