    Well, I've found my new desktop wallpaper.

    And, since I'm finally come back from my self-imposed exile, I figure I'd share my thoughts on Young Avengers #1:

    I get that there are people that picked up Avengers Arena #1, but if you didn't pick this up too, you are insane.

    This is the book that I desperately wanted Teen Titans to be: Something that focuses more on the characters than some uber plot. This book actually gives consideration to the "teen" aspect more than the "superhero". In one issue, this team is more likable than most in Teen Titans (kinda wish Bunker could come over here with the other awesome people).

    It bucks stupid cliches of slutshaming and acknowledges that more than hetero-males read comics with the super awesome Kate Bishop and the ever abtastic and ever likable Noh-Varr. It doesn't punish either of them for having a fun time.

    Speaking of couples, there were people (specifically my friend) who complained that Billy and Teddy were being angsty. Really? I don't see it. In fact, I'm glad for this scene because Teddy finally showed more emotion to his mom's death than in YA vol. 1. And the whole "I fell in love with a superhero". In any poorer written book, that would've been the moment when Teddy would leave, because apparently couples can't create drama. *facepalm* But here, Teddy has remained quiet to support Billy and Billy now wants to be a better person for someone he cares for. Again! Character moments!

    Loki is Loki and Miss America is Miss America and I would have them no other way. I do love that even the God of Lies supports a well-balanced breakfast.

    This was a fun issue with great characters, interesting plots, beautiful art (pencils, inks, and colors) and actually has an energetic and youthful feel that a young adult book should have.

    All in all, in ten years, are we going to honestly remember the Culling or are we going to remember that time Loki used sausages to create a magic ritual or the time Noh-Varr danced to "Be My Baby" in nothing but his boxer briefs right before kicking Skrull ass w/ Kate Bishop?

    Exactly.

    I just feel it's too "done" for him. The fanart usually presents it a bit more loose and it looks better. I don't see a 16 yr-old with messy hair suddenly getting a curling iron for his bangs and then gelling them down that much at 18.

    Running a comb through it, fine. But it's just too much.

    I like how YannaPryde did it

    Thanks!!! Its not far from how I do my own hair, actually.
    I agree too. Less concrete placement. More 'lax' and loose.

    Okay, for those of you not in the know yet, Young Avengers #1 was the 18th highest selling comic book in January 2013, according to Diamond Comic Distributors-

    With 71,245 units sold, that is a pretty solid showing. Here's to YA#2 sales being similarly awesome.

    As someone who loved Gen 13 back in the day, I thought they were the Young Avengers when I passed by it on Tumblr...

    Just saying, I always thought Cait would wear athletic clothing!

    Hmmm interesting Speed is really going to need to get an edge again fOr that to work and get with a group suffering various mental illnesses who pretty much hate each other.

    Maybe Speed is in with those Young Masters from Dark Reign?

    Woo-hoo! Top 20!
    Hey we beat Brain Azzarello's "Wonder Woman", Grant Morrison's "Action comics" and the hunger Games ripoff "Avengers Arena" plus some of those "Before Watchmen" titles.

    The first new issue of YA was always going to sell incredibly well.
    There were far too many people waiting to see these characters again.
    The true test will be to see how the book continues to sell.

    Total surprise today at the comic store: in my pull file was the O'malley variant from issue #1. My store hadn't qualified for it with the original solicits, and I was a little bummed not to get it. They got some somehow and I was full chuffed to get one!

    One more week until issue #2!! :D
