My moment of the week were from a book I didn't even read - Punisher #5. If it's as good as the moments I've seen the last couple of months, I might just have to grab the trade. The moment of the "weak" is Jeph Loeb and Hulk #12. I'm not even buying the book and I want to bash my head against the wall everytime I see something from that book.
Agents of Atlas never clicked with me in the previous volume, so I haven't been picking it up, but I might have to jump in and see how they handle this Cabal reveal and the confrontation with Namor over it.
Amazing Spider-Man #594
Jonah Sr and Aunt May are confirmed as the couple getting married in Amazing Spider-Man #600.
Captain America #50
Hawkeye is the man. He's got both Black Widow and Ms Marvel on his arm and he's already hooked up with Mockingbird, who Spider-Man seems to be moving in on in the back. Kind of funny when you consider Hawkeye should be paired up with Mockingbird and Spider-Man has a date sort of confirmed from Ms Marvel from a few months back in her series (speaking of which, she looks good here for someone that's supposed to be dead).
These two pages aren't in order, so don't bother with the writing or trying to make them make sense together. I just wanted to show off a couple of the pages of Marcos Martin's art and the layouts I spoke of in the review of this issue.
Fantastic Four #566
Dr Doom's master killed this Watcher from another time/dimension/some other mumbo jumbo. It was typical Mark Millar sensationlism, but I liked it.
Ahah, this was great. All hail Doom!
Or not. Not is good, too. Seems Doom's master wasn't impressed with his years of failures and lack of progress on the whole Reed Richards vendetta deal.
What follows are a series of pages from Jeph Loeb's Mary Sue #12 that have Rulk killing everyone and everything in his path. This doesn't include his killing of the Hulk last issue. These are not good moments, just in case you were wondering.
Pyscho-Man. Dead. Twice if you want to get technical.
Terrax tries to get ahead in life and fails.
Urge to kill...rising.
A red ring just flew by my window.
I'm puking up blood now.
That Elder of the Universe was just punched to death by Rulk. Rrrahggggggghhhhhh!!
Oh, Cecil, you so dead if Invincible sees what you've been up to.
There's going to be a few of these Punisher moments coming up, so some context for anyone not aware of what's going on in his book. He's trying to take out the Hood and his super-villain gang. This justified using random super hero and villain weaponry, including Ant-Man's helmet. In this image, he shrunk down on a pizza, got eaten by the bad guy and then expanded. That is not pizza sauce he is covered in.
Don't think this needs any explaining. Funny stuff.
I want that bike. He even has a matching skull helmet. I wonder if the guys from Orange County Choppers will make me one...
Not sure where the Hood got the power to resurrect people like this, but the villains were all killed by Punisher at one point (I believe in Matt Fraction's run) and should be some fun cannon fodder for Frank.
Not sure what happened in this issue, but Supergirl started going Jerry Springer on Superwoman, ripping her costume off and all that, and then Superwoman exploded. Superwoman was Lois Lane's sister, in case you were wondering why this matters.
Uncanny Traced Porn #510
Not sure who these people are, but the man (?) in the picture seems to be made up of one giant tumor. It must be extremely painful having a body like that and explains the grimace.
The Cuckoos and Josh Foley are about 15 years old, give or take. The Cuckoos were also flat as a board before the breast enlargements. Seeing them talk about tantric sex and what not is quite disturbing. Bonus points to Land for copy and pasting the same traced image three times in one panel there and twice in the first one.
Wolverine: Weapon X #2
Wolverine's even overexposed in the Marvel Universe media!
This fight sequence was several pages long, but I tried to capture the best part of it. Not sure if it loses something with the lack of build up and narrative of the previous pages or not.
