I've always been more of a DC fan and I really only know these Marvel characters from the movies. I enjoy a few Marvel books, one of them being Deconnick's Captain Marvel, so I was looking forward to this issue by a writer I enjoy that was billed as an easy introduction to these characters. It lived up to my expectations. Fun story, witty banter, and light on the continuity. I don't know that it'll lead me to picking up more of the Marvel NOW! releases, but they've managed to squeeze another $4 a month out of me for the time being.
