    What's going on with Hickman's "New Avengers"? I haven't seen anything announced with that one yet. Is it coming later?

    Hickman's Avengers titles are the only new title about which there have been no summaries or art examples or announcements of any kind really.

    I was actually just reading about Matt Damon and he’s like, ‘There’s a culture of outrage.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they have a reason to be outraged.’ I think it’s a lot of dudes just being scared. They’re like, ‘What if I did something and I didn’t realize it?’ I’m like, ‘Deal with it.’

    Dustin Weaver should be finishing SHIELD and not illustrating X-Men books and Avengers covers.

    It's rather nice of those covers to orchestrate it so that no matter the cover, my eyeline goes right to Cap/Thor/Iron Man's crotch.

    Hopeless/Larroca: Wanted
    Hopeless/Walker: Survive

    What do we think these are? I'm guessing at least a Cable-centric book for one of them...

    Hopeless is a good writer, so this bodes well.

    Yep. The Bolts. Pretty lazy line-up.

    I'm interested to see how Way writes the Punisher into this business...

    I thought it was a fun cover homage at first. Then I read the synopsis.

    They are literally taking Avengers Academy students to an arena and making them kill each other.

    I'll likely check out the trade, as Hopeless and Walker are good peeps. Plus, Hickman says that of all the NOW! pitches, this was the best. Hopefully there are some tricks up their sleeves.

    Does anyone else find many of the Marvel NOW! titles more creative and exciting than most all of last year's New 52?

    I'm a DC guy through and through, but the NOW! stuff looks to potentially kick the New 52's butt.

    No they both look equally generic to me.

    I'll definitely concede that the cover art seems to be much more ambitious on a whole.

    To make a point, good cover by Larroca. Not gonna read this book, and I'm sad it's replacing Uncanny X-Force, which has been a heckuva series.

    Yeah but you put your nose up at all big 2 superhero stuff now, so your vote counts for half at best :P

    What the fuck, I though the BR-style round Avengers Arena logo is just for the BR parody cover, but that is the series' actual logo? Come on.

    Decided to try out Uncanny Avengers, since it caught my eye.

    What'd you think? I thought it was pretty fun, just the right amount of over-the-top ridiculous superheroics. Remender is great at this kind of story, so I'm excited for the rest.

    Not as much as I am for Hickman's Avengers, though. If that winds up being even a fraction as awesome as his FF, it'll really be something.

    Yeah, the final set of panels was a bit ridiculous, but I like it as a start.

    Anybody read the Marvel Now Point One? The Fraction/Allred FF story was GREAT, and has me even more excited than ever for that series. The rest of the series previewed here - Secret Avengers, Young Avengers, Nova, Cable & X-Force, Guardians of the Galaxy - didn't do too much to excite me, at least in this short form. Only Nick Spencer's Secret Avengers/Fake Nick Fury stuff was actually bad, the rest just weren't series I was planning on reading, and they didn't really pique my interest much based on these snippets.

    More than a little wary that D'Armata is coloring New Avengers. He destroyed Epting's work on Brub's Cap.

    The three Thors from Aaron's upcoming run.



    Apparently old Thor isn't just missing an eye like his dad. His arms have been replaced with a Destroyer's.
