The art for MOTU looks really good, even if the book may suck, looks like it's worth the price.

yeah, glanced once again at the Superior Spider-Man...how can someone actually pay for this I don't know. If I was still caring about the guy i'd be pissed.

Joel,

Bam! In one paragraph you summed up perfectly the disappointing elements of Superior Spider-Man.  It seems like such a waste of energy to everyone involved to do such a slap-dash job of what could be one of the most compelling storylines in Spidey's history: a bad-guy doing his best to make good and honor the hero he finally defeated.  Really, that isn't a storyline that comes along very often and the readers (even the ones crying foul over Peter's "death") could have been greatly rewarded.  Instead, it feels like Marvel got cold feet and injected Peter back into things and made the story more a comedy than the serious character study it could have been.  I'm giving it one more issue to turn things arp\ound or really surprise me before saying aloha.

 i remember the old MOTU animated series like it was yesterday. did anyone notice that teela, sorceress and she-ra all look the same just different hairstyles?

But if Octavius changed too soon then people would complain. Nobody, I mean, nobody changes in a day.

Exactly MrJaw.

Ah, but he's not even showing a hint of what affected him in ASM #700. Caring, empathy, understanding... none of it. He doesn't have to do an instant 180, but he needs to start his rotation.

I've read the six issues of the DC reboot of MOTU, and they are GOOD.  No camp, very mature storyline, well told, excellent art work.  SPOILERS!!!!!  There are some major reboots to some of the characters and ONE VERY MAJOR DEATH.  It's worth a read.
