Random Thoughts

– “Everything Burns” wraps up this week, convienently to coincide with the launch of the much maligned (by me) Marvel NOW. Here’s hoping for an adequate payoff for such a buildup.

– Valiant stuff keeps getting better; I had the chance to talk with a couple of Valiant execs at NYCC and even though I may have come off like a fawning, sweaty fanboy (like all fanboys, ever) they were generally very enthused to hear from me and talk about the future (a little bit) & direction they were headed.  Confirmed that Turok, Solar & Magnus were probably lost and gone forever, but the rest of the cast & crew of Valiant will be showing up with increasing frequency over the course of the next 18 months.  I asked them about Rai and was told, “Just wait, we’ve got big plans for Rai.”

– How ’bout that Daredevil cover? Wow.

– Depending on what happens in Wonder Woman, I may drop the book.

– I love Double Barrel. Go & investigate!

This Week’s Haul: I Need a Saga! What’s the Saga?

This week’s releases solidifies my hypocrisy: I will bitch endlessly about these DC zero issues even as I’m walking out of the store with them. But as much as I hate that about myself, I love the Defenders, the current direction of Iron Man and everything that Valiant puts out. So it’s a trade off then. Of course, I could always just not buy the things I don’t want. Preposterous idea, I know.
