Marrying a man-wolf


JLA #1 late one week (hardly the Civil War delay)
It's no secret that Meltzer's building his first story arc around Red Tornado, but he's found a new and yet quintessentially Meltzerian way to deal with Reddy. There's guest stars aplenty, including one spooky character whose appearance is deceiving..


She-Hulk 10: I married a man-wolf
A campy cover of She-Hulk in the 1950's horror movie poster style.
Sweetie, I am always green to go!

Jennifer and new husband John Jameson try to capture rogue superheroes in the Civil War. "Near John, I am so deliriously happy, and lucky for me, he feels exactly the same way!" Although Jennifer complains about the other big Marvel weddings (Jones and Cage, Panther and Storm) were grand and theirs was "a quickie in Vegas".

Great scenes in the 'comic reference library'- first, a debate over where to shelve the new She-Hulk in terms of Sensational, Savage, and just She-Hulk-- all volume ones!. Then, the reference librarian comes to an important revelation regarding the head of the firm. Go, librarians!



Living in Infamy 4 of 4
Words: Benjamin Raab and Deric A. Hughes
Pencils: Greg Kirkpatrick
This was one of those series that I liked, but the space between issues made me forget the characters and plot. The basic premise is that people with superpowers are relocated, a la witness protection, into a new community. There is an old blind samurai (who drives a car!), a mafia type, a mayor who telepathically asks for votes, more. The lead male, Tom, sold out the Baron in Romania to make a new life for his wife and son. Of course, a final showdown ensues..

Y the Last Man 48
The origin story of Alter, the Isreali soldier hunting Yorick. Word is that Issue #50, in October,
the person, people or thing behind the plague that killed every man except for Yorick Brown is finally revealed

Go librarians, indeed. Unfortunately, the law firm librarian goes out the door. Too bad. I liked him.

I really need to catch up on Y. It's the last series that I'm reading that I still need to catch up on.
