    Wait, what was the reason why I couldn't head down to Collector's Edge with you?

    Havok's pretty cool. I'm biased but I like him b/c he's always been the younger more hotheaded brother living up to the older brother type. Also his costume in the 90s was pretty awesome.

    Nova is ultimately a Green Lantern knock off. Yes, he's got different layers to GL now but the essential concept is similar. Me? I like both of them.

    DC Solicitiations May 2009

    No Green Lantern that month! JLA is killing me, I think I'm going to drop it too. Really can't justify it anymore - so pedestrian. JSA is great tho I wonder how the new creative team will go.

    And I'm very iffy on the Battle for the Cowl. Tony Daniel is a great artist, brilliant, but I'm not sure if I want to pick this up cos it could open a whole new can of batman worms.

    The next HC for GL is out too. One thing I must say when I look at DCs trades. They have so much more legs than Marvels. I look at some of the titles and I see why. With Marvel, its more of a flavour o the month thing

    pfffft. Marvel ripping off DC? NEVER! What are you going to say next, that Hawkeye and Mockingbird aren't original characters?

    I've become a fan of Nova since Annihilation, he's really come into his own character and isn't the young idiot that first graced the pages of New Warriors.

    And I think when it comes to the galactic stuff, Marvel might be winning. Annihilation, Conquest and now War of Kings all essentially manage to keep the bulk of Earth's heroes out of it, leaving them to their own wars, while over at DC it looks like Blackest Night will involve a lot of DC's Earth heroes.

    So to me, Marvel's at least able to tell a grand story on two fronts, while DC just sticks to the same ol bunch and confuses the crap out of me.

    I think given how massive and popular the Sinestro War was, they're banking on it to their big baby of the summer but what worked about the Sinestro War was how closed it was like the War of Kings and Annihilation stuff.

    DC are struggling but their trade numbers are giving a hell of a beating to Marvel in not only the DM but mass market too.

    Finished The League of Extraordinary Gentleman Vol 2 today, so I'll comment on Vols 1 and 2 as a whole.

    When I originally saw the movie, I was not aware that it was based on a comic, and although the movie was quite sub par, I enjoyed the concept. Now, after reading the actual comics, I can actually see how well Moore took lots of already existing characters, and joined them all together in his own story. So many other little inclusions and easter eggs and the like, really enjoyed that. I enjoyed Vol 2 a bit more, because of the inclusion of the War of the Worlds/Martians, and I'm a space/aliens/sci-fi kinda guy. That's not to say Vol 1 wasn't as good, just I enjoyed Vol 2 better. Pacing was excellent, although both volumes were only 6 issues each, it never felt rushed. O'Neill's art was great, had that sort of rough, ragged look to it that I enjoy.

    Overall, really enjoyed them, and just more evidence in my eyes of how good a writer Moore is, albeit a little wacky

    After reading War of Kings #1, if you're not doing so, start following this series.

    Annihilation was good.
    Annihilation : Conquest was great.

    WoK is building on those two and it's going to be damn good!
    And if it isn't i'm going to sulk.

    I don't follow Marvel's space adventures, I don't know if I can jump into it. I mean I'd like to. the Inhuman's Secret Invasion mini got me interested.

    War of Kings looks so promising. Could be best Marvel event for the last few years, I reckon. Annhilation was awesome. Conquest wasn't as good, a bit messy. But this has the makings of an absolute classic.

    Also just finished Thor #13. Amazing character work with Loki. I saw a lot of it coming but the dialogue is just so crisp. #600 is next!

    Uhh #13? Isn't that #600. Do you mean #12 which is the one centered around Loki?

    Also read the latest Deadpool, the first part of Deadpool -vs- Thunderbolts.

    This is going to be a fun read!

    It's going to be upbeat and fun in Deadpool whilst serious going in the Thunderbolts parts.

    I think I'm going to enjoy the Thunderbolts issues of the crossover more. I don't know the current Deadpool, whilst isn't bad, it isn't really all that stand out, I'm getting a bit tired of the constant hallucinations.
