Weekly Comic Discussion

Sorry for posting this a day late. As you can see from the
shipping lists
, there are a number of interesting titles
shipping this week, including Supreme Power
#4
, Ultimate Spider-Man #49,
Exiles #37, and Wolverine: The End
#1
(which will get its own review this weekend before
the whole miniseries gets reviewed when it’s finished.) The
Ultimate Spider-Man issue should mark the
end of a story arc, so issues 47-49 will get a review this
weekend as well.

    Powers
    Doesn’t anybody read Powers? The current storyline has been a bit strange, but Bendis said if we stuck with it it would pay off. True to his word it has been excellent so far.

      I haven’t picked up this weeks copy yet, but yeah i read Supreme Power and i’m seriously digging it. I know it’s supposed to be a semi-prequel to some other series that i’m unfamiliar with, but i don’t care — it reminds me over everything else i’ve read from JMS: solid writting that flows like a novel, building and building.

      “Bendis” ? … i didn’t realize he had anything to do with this series?

        He doesn’t. Supreme Power is a different series entirely from Powers (which I don’t read, and don’t know anything about).

    I picked up three of the four.

    Although my impression of Supreme Power is, on the whole, favorable, I find the plotting to be almost glacial. I’d be interested in opinions from someone who hasn’t read Squadron Supreme. Or even just hasn’t read it so recently (I stumbled across it a couple months back).

    I don’t think there’s anything I can say about this month’s Exiles without spoiling something, and the Wolverine book has already covered stuff I didn’t know about, but I need another issue or two to evaluate it to any degree.

    I also picked up a couple issues of Arrowsmith (Kurt Busiek and Carlos Pacheco doing a fantasy retelling of World War One) and The Planetary Reader (Warren Ellis, John Cassaday), which continues the last three weeks of Planetary goodness for me (trades are awesome).
