Captain America #34

2 02 2008

I’ve returned from the comic book store with two weeks worth of new releases.  I started flipping through New Avengers, Mighty Avengers, FF, Astonishing X-Men, Star Trek Year 4, etc.  The title I was most excited in, however, was Captain America.  Issue number 34 introduces us to James “Bucky” Barnes the Winter Soldier as the new Captain America. 

I’m not going to give the story away but it jumps right into the action without a long protracted passing of the torch.  I think what’s made this title so compelling is that they’ve brought in strong stories, a strong supporting cast, and made it more about espionage than super powers destroying the world.  So far so good, this is a title worth checking out.

Onto Astonishing X-Men…

Superhero Personality Test

19 01 2008

I found this Superhero personality test from Hammer of the Gods. I’m apparently Spiderman, one of my favorites. Of course, I wouldn’t have made a deal with the devil to wipe out 21 years of history in such a stupid fashion like the real Spiderman. Stupid Brand New Day plotline… To go on a tangent, I just read the first issue, Spiderman #546 and while the writing was ok, the entire plot just sickens and angers me. On top of that, I really hated the two-page, we’re going to wipe it out and tell you how it all is now in two seconds page. Why couldn’t they just have Spiderman go through a divorce and a family death? That would have been in the tradition of Spiderman dealing with normal life.
