Wednesdaybusiness 6/19/13

This week, I'm going to steal a page from The Comics Curmudgeon's book, and try out some one-sentence reviews.


A+X #9 by Nathan Edmonson, Humberto Ramos, and David Lapham

Wolverine and Cap fight giant snakes and a magically-powered chimp, and Kid Omega tries to steal Doctor Strange's stuff, and it's all very entertaining.


Age of Ultron #10 by Brian Michael Bendis, Alex Maleev, Bryan Hitch, Paul Neary, Butch Guice, Brandon Peterson, Carlos Pacheco, Roger Bonet, Tom Palmer, David Marquez, and Joe Quesada

Hank Pym and the Avengers succeed in defeating Ultron and saving the future (and Hank somehow knows how to pronounce a forward slash out loud in conversation), the space/time continuum gets a little fucked up, and Joe Quesada cums all over himself for drawing a mediocre picture of Angela that he claimed was Top Classified Secret but then told the newspapers about anyway.


Avengers #14 by Jonathan Hickman, Nick Spencer, and Stefano Caselli

The Earth is becoming a sentient entity, every electronic device on the planet - including things like planes and nukes - is blinking on and off every few minutes, the multiverse is going crazy over in New Avengers, the goons on A.I.M. Island have just hatched something potentially horrible, and Hawkguy just isn't ready to handle this level of anarchy.


Batman and Batgirl #21 by Peter J. Tomasi and Cliff Richards

Batman is still losing it over the death of his son and Batgirl is still losing it over the death of her brother, and so they both lose it at each other, and the results make for a pretty fun comic.


Cable and X-Force #10 by Dennis Hopeless and Salvador Larroca

The Uncanny Avengers try to arrest X-Force because they still think X-Force are terrorists even though they've very openly saved the world at this point, and it's kind of fun but also kind of stupid.


Captain Marvel #13 by Kelly Sue DeConnick, Scott Hepburn, and Gerardo Sandoval

With Bruce Banner's help, Carol and company finally figure out that Yon-Rogg is behind everything, and then Kree sentinels start waking up all over the Earth and the Avengers have to go punch them.


Fantastic Four #9 by Matt Fraction and Mark Bagley

The Fantastic Four go back in time to witness the creation of Doctor Doom, but so do a kajillion ultra-narcissistic Dooms from other dimensions, and it's pretty great.


Indestructible Hulk # 9 by Mark Waid and Matteo Scalera

The Hulk teams up with Daredevil to help him out with his usual Daredevil business, and instead of explaining why that's so much fun I'm just going to post one whole page from the comic.


Morbius #6 by Joe Keatinge and Valentine de Landro

The Superior Spider-Man bullies Morbius into helping determine the cause of a break-in at Horizon Labs, and they end up fighting a new techno-supervillain named Nikoleta Harrow who is really cool and I hope becomes a recurring character.


New Avengers #7 by Jonathan Hickman and Mike Deodato

The Multiverse is still going completely haywire, Doctor Doom is pretty suspicious about the bits of it he's seen, Wakanda and Atlantis are going to war, and it really feels like Jonathan Hickman's getting into his groove in the best possible way lately.


Supergirl #21 by Michael Alan Nelson and Diogenes Neves

I am kind of surprised by this, as I don't hear many people talking about it, but Supergirl is easily the best comic in the Nü52 right now, aside from maybe Dial H.


The Superior Spider-Man #12 by Christos Gage and Giuseppe Camuncoli

As the Spider-Slayer takes over the prison and gives a bunch of the inmates increased powers, J. Jonah Jameson becomes... ACTION OLD-GUY!


Thunderbolts #11 by Daniel Way and Phil Noto

I usually really like Daniel Way's comics, but for all the action this one has it's still totally boring me.


Uncanny Avengers #9 by Rick Remender and Daniel Acuña

Captain America found out about all the killing Wolverine did in Uncanny X-Force and he's kind of being an uptight turd about it considering that he killed hundreds and hundreds of Nazis back in the day, the Apocalypse Twins have put together a pretty hilarious Four Horsemen that I don't want to spoil yet, and apparently Wonder Man is a pacifist now for some reason?
