Weekly Comic Discussion

There’s a whole lot shipping out this
week
, although American markets won’t get things
until tomorrow thanks to the July 4 weekend.
(They’ll ship today in Canada, but I doubt I can get
away from work while the comic shop I buy from is
open today.) Items worth noting this week include
Exiles #49, Fantastic Four #515,
Supreme Power #11, and Ultimate
Spider-Man
#62. These are the single issues I’m
picking up, while other available single issues
include Powerless #1 and Guardians
#1. Trade paperbacks include Marvel Age
Fantastic Four Vol. 1
and Marvel Age
Spider-Man Vol. 2
from Marvel, and Green
Lantern / Green Arrow Vol. 2
from DC. There’s a
considerable amount of other interesting materials
from other companies, too. It’s a good week for
comics.

    Seemed like a sub-par issue of Exiles
    Very, very compressed, probably as a fill-in so that issue 50 can start a new storyline. Still don’t know what to think of Bedard’s writing, which doesn’t seem to carry the weight of previous issues.

      That’s my feeling. I’m giving him a while to really impress me. So far, nothing’s been terrible, but nothing’s grabbed me, and I’m still collecting primarily because of what came before. He feels like a fill-in writer to me, especially this time around. I’m hoping that the next story arc is really impressive for his sake, but I hope it isn’t for my own; my pull list is uncomfortably long for someone who may not have a job in September.
