I read some comics last night

and overall, I must tell you, they kind of hurt my soul. A good week that left me feeling quite 'meh' thus far. So anyway, SPOILERS AHEAD! You've been warned.

Green Arrow and Black Canary #5
Judd Winick just likes to torture his characters. It's just one disaster to another. The sense of suspense leaves me with an eternal Murphy's Law type feeling. Instead of being brought in with suspense, I just feel like 'Oh what's happening to them now?"

New Exiles #2
I would like off the ride please. It's starting to nauseate me.
The inevitable Romy pairing won't be avoided, not even with a Earth 1009 Rogue and a Earth 6706 Gambit, who is the son of a randomly black Namor and Susan Storm. WTF. W.T.F. I think I just grew out of Claremont's writing style. Oh, and Rogue keeps callling Gambit "G". I think it's supposed to come off sounding tough but it just rings 'fake gangsta' in my head.

Salvation Run #4
Talking ape beats other talking ape about the head and face with brain in jar. Yeah, the cover pretty much sums it all up right there. 0_0;
IGN.com loved it. I didn't.


X-Force #1
I am giving this book a second chance, if only for the amazing art of Clayton Crain. Casting 'crazy religious people' as villians is a bit old. Plus, they pussyfoot around almost all religions except Christianity. I know we don't have a lock on crazy religious nutjobs. I am vaguely curious to where the story is going, if only for Rahne's explanation of her participation in the team.

Rahne's explanation for being on the team is in this month's X-factor. as for Ape Vs ape, DC is running out of talking apes and brains in jars.

That ape beating the crap out of each other doesn't sound too bad to me lol.
