Wallowing in Back Issues
So...I have been on a Thor/Journey Into Mystery/Loki: Agent of Asgard binge lately. Being slightly disgusted and bored by the most recent batch of books from DC, and being inspired by the forthcoming new Avengers movie, I went back into my long boxes and pulled some of my old favorites. It is rather amusing to see the ads in these books for the NEW Thor, Captain America and Green Lantern movies. Has it really been that long?
Needless to say, these hold up very well, and are a heck of a lot of fun. And violence and really good art. Also, Loki on a Cell phone, and being accused of being a troll by some on-line poster, and his disbelief at the accusation. Because as Thor points out...he's half Giant...not Troll.
And then I got all of my Young Avengers books out too, because it all ties in together, and now I've got my youngest daughter hooked on them too. She just finished re-reading the Sandman books a while ago. So yes, Marvel and DC, you can thank me for setting up future customers for you!
How can you not like this stuff?
One of the things that I do like a whole lot about both Marvel and DC, is that they have such wonderful other worlds, in Asgard, and the nine...oops, ten realms, and Oa, and all the great cities in DC, none of which have been showcased much lately, and the way that they all tie together. I actually don't mind a multi-verse at all. So it pains me a bit when they have Secret Wars, that will wipe things out, and Crisis after Crisis that wipes things out, and why the heck are you ashamed of your history? Embrace it! We do!
Okay, I'll get off of my soap box, and go back to reading.
