- OCT082402 DAREDEVIL #114 $2.99
The Hand's in town, so presumably that is why The Owl is alive, well, and hairy on the cover. Grumble, grumble. Whinging about the meaningless cycle of death in superhero comics, aside, it sounds like the Lady Bullseye action is about to kick up a notch as "everyone who can kick" is invited to a battle royal in the streets of New York. Sounds like our kind of party!
- OCT080146 FLASH #247 $2.99
Since Infinite Crisis, it's been an awful few years for Wally West.
Lumped with a couple of freak kids with no business existing and playing second fiddle to just about every other Flash that's existed, things haven't looked so good for the scarlet speedster. Final Crisis might be providing a brief moment of reprieve, but it looks like the spotlight's about to fall squarely on an unfortunately revived Barry Allen. With Flash #247 delivering the ominous possibility of Wally West's death, realistic or not, I can't help but feel it's been an unfair run. Here's hoping we aren't trading one Flash, for another. I'm still not convinced the resurrection of Barry Allen is at all a good thing.
- OCT082409 HULK #9 $2.99
It takes a big man to admit when he's wrong, but sometimes, even other guys can do it!
Maybe it's because only grabbed a couple of issues, but damn. Jeph Loeb's Hulk, even without Ed McGuinness, isn't nearly as bad as I made it out to be. Sure, don't come if you're looking for anything informative or intelligent, but as far as a parade of superhero fights goes? Man, even this Hulk/Rulk double feature split is kinda neat. Pushing it's luck a bit, but neat, and as the current home of She-Hulk and the Lady Liberators, it's that much more interesting. Damn it!
- OCT082412 IMMORTAL IRON FIST #21 $2.99
Experimentation will kill this series, and Marvel comics will be all the worse for that.
As awkwardly as I feel about the Phantom-esque legacy backstory added to the character, I like that this title is still doing things you don't typically see. I just dread the stubborn ignorance that will see the book to it's death.
- OCT082345 NEW AVENGERS #48 DKR $2.99
Billed as the first major roster change since the beginning of the series, I find myself laughing snidely. If the cover is to be believed, the addition of Captain America might be a very nice touch, particularly in the development of Bucky Barnes in the mantle. Let's just hope we can actually spend some time with this team. Time that doesn't involve an endless drag of recruitment, semi-nudity, and event-driven solo distractions. New Avengers actually remains one of the better Marvel titles, but under a brand that is all too often a misnomer. Here's hoping for some fluidity to these Avengers in 2009!
- OCT082449 SHE-HULK 2 #36 $2.99
If you felt stung by the She-Hulk cancellation, then you need to buy this issue!
As discussed at the beginning of the month [Punch-Up #36], Marvel had no reason to keep the book going. Don't like it? Send a message through sales! Or bitch about it on the internet! Or check out Hulk, which is arguably a better read right now, anyway.
- OCT080098 VIGILANTE #1 $2.99
Marv Wolfman returns with a vengeance to take a stab at yet another Vigilante series!
Not sure this one will do any better than the others, but it's nice to see DC commit.
- OCT080157 WONDER WOMAN #27 $2.99
Wonder Woman continues to contend with the threat of Libra and the Society's secret weapon - Genocide! Having just dived face-first into Final Crisis over Christmas, I'm into it, even if I'm preoccupied with wondering where in the timeline this fits. A question I quite enjoy, perhaps benefitting from reading the core series in one easy-to-understand sitting. She's finally got a respectable ranking on the site, so here's hoping Wonder Woman survives the ordeal!
