Some from last weekAngel - After the Fall #11
That had to hurt.
A very good issue of this series. The new art, while not perfect, is much better. It also focuses on the "core" cast, without requiring you to have read previous comics to know who people are.
I'm also glad they shide away from the "predictable" ending...Astonishing X-men #26
I'm actually gonna copy a bit from another review, which perfectly explains why I like this...
One of Ellis’ greatest gifts is his ability to change voice on a dime, a necessity for anyone that tackles a team book, at least a team as diverse as the X-Men. As much as I loved Joss Whedon’s run (aside form the hellacious delays), his writing style bathed each character in varying degrees of snark. Sarcasm has its place in this world (shockingly says the guy from Joisey), but it can become grating when each team member’s sole goal is to “bring the funny”. Not everyone in the world is funny, sarcastic or has the ability to bandy about quips with the rapidity of Chinese Olympic ping-pong players.Secret Invasion - Inhumans #1
By being able to let go of his ego and slide into the skin of each X-Men team member, Ellis makes even the most boring of archetypes, like the stoic team leader Scott Summers, intriguing without sacrificing his true personality. Many writers need to rely on shattering the status quo with Summers to make him interesting, like Morrison’s quarter-life crisis version, but Ellis squeezes out gorgeous characterization by letting Cyc (and frankly all of the team) just revel in being themselves.
Secret War seemingly ruins up the long set up. It started in Quicksilver: Son of M (or whatever it was called)...continued in Silent War (which I loved)...and petters out due to the requirements of a company wide cross over. Lovely
That bad taste ruined this issue for me...
It was nice to see the follow up to something that happened...ooo....5-6 months ago? (Nice work Marvel!).
Generally we get a repeat of "Who do you trust" with the Inhumans turning on each other.
I don't get the end...why is BB still alive..and what's to stop him talking?
