I've not read Hunger Games, but in general I'm not big on deathmatch scenarios like Battle Royale.
And now it's time for another round of...Give Advice to Zap!
So I just got my first college acceptance letter. Hurray! On the flipside, my best friend was just rejected from that college this weekend. It's a back-up school for me, and it's her dream school. She's pretty sad she didn't get in, so I'm thinking I should wait awhile before I mention it to her...?

So I browsed over Avengers 1 at hastings. Too much hype before the issue came out. And then I read it and really wasn't that impressed. I'm sure Hickman will tell us the origins of Ex Nihilo and the others but like always he seems to have a problem with writing things that are just there without explaining anything. Also it may just be me but Hickman's inner dialogue is hella annoying. I liked it in Fantastic Four and Ultimates but all these words that seem to make the reader work harder to understand it is just wrong. People don't use most of the words that he writes. I did like the artwork though. However it wasn't impressive at all like his first issue of Ultimates. this first issue felt more like he was doing a chore before getting into the meat of the story. Also it was kind of cliche. John carter anyone?
Also I might be biased since I kinda hate the guy now as a person after his avengers q + a. I really hope all this big stuff doesn't go to his head.
In other news All-new x-men is awesome. I didn't think I would like it this much but Bendis is perfect. Slight bendis speak but I'm use to it now.
Now I am lucky to have a girl that I wouldnt call a nerd or geek but was already down with books like Fables(which is how we got started) and Lock and Key and is always up for a Superhero movie but at the same time has her own style and lieks apart from mine most of which I enjoy. Id post a picture but you know how much I love images but if you can find me on facebook I think there are a few of us on there.
I would give it 5/10 just an avarage single issue.
As for his debut issue, it was absolutely fantastic. Sure, it was mostly set up, but it's a #1, most of them are. There was a lot of great world building going on. And just like in any Hickman book, the design elements were outstanding. The graphic on the final page is mind blowing.
I like Ultimate Comics. - Read them with us!
I also buy: Captain America, Avengers, FF, New Avengers, X-Factor, among others
I don't know, using the Moviengers as a hook up and having them essantially taken out for the time being so we can get out the brand new Avengers out there is practically as forced decision as the prison break that began with New Avengers. So far my favorite things coming out of Marvel NOW have been Incredible Hulk, Thor & Captain America. Uncanny and Avengers suffer from too much hype, or well the writers just don't deliver on that scale, which has been a major disappointment from Remender, too much continuity nods, forced dialogue and so forward regarding Cyclops & Xavier.
And I disagree with the Uncanny Avengers critique. He's really building something special with the whole mutant public relations thing. The first half of issue #2 was particularly enthralling. I think, maybe, Marvel calling it the flagship book was a bit of a mistake. As it's own entity, though, it's amazingly well written.
The solo books have been great though. I traditionally don't read the Thor solo but I decided to pick this one up and have really engrossed in the story. It's amazing. I would have picked up Cap anyway since he's my favorite character but I like Remender's new take on him a lot. I haven't read Hulk yet but I'm sure I'll get around to it.
I'm not Captain America, but I wish I was.
I suggest everyone pick up Brian Woods Star Wars comic when it comes out because the previews look freakin awesome. I love his Emperor dialogue. Along with Star Wars Legacy. I will be a pretty big Star Wars fan coming up this year.
