    While it is good to see more on how The Imperial Guard functions as an organization I find myself wondering, How did she get those goggles?

    Probably just the good colors but Kuberts art looks a hell of a lot better here than it did in issue 4

    Kuberts art is great but his layouts are really really bad. From what I read from #4 most of the boxes were really long equal rectangles. Give him more space to draw and I think his work would be really good.

    Man, I know I'll love this character, but I know she's going to die. She is a Smasher.

    She won't die until after Hickman's run lol.

    Preview looks good. I like that Carlos Pacheco alternate cover. I'd really like to see him get to do an arc somewhere down the line.

    Love that Rivera cover featuring Sunspot and Cannonball.

    I always forget that Sunspot can fly.

    He never seems to do it much these days.

    It is sort of an interesting spin on the Guard. It gives it sort of a Green Lantern vibe.

    I have loved the Imperial Guard since...the Dark Phoenix storyline? I really wish Marvel would give them a chance with their own series and REALLY wish Hickman would write it!! I'm really looking forward to this issue!

    This is essentially the structure that DnA put forth in their IG mini.

    That's what I thought when reading the preview, that it was giving a sort of GL vibe. I like it. I don't think it's been handled like that before.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who got that feeling, but this is good. I like how this reads.
    Currently reading She-Hulk, Deadpool, Swamp Thing, Ms. Marvel

    Probation: Ghost Rider, Loki: LoA, Secret Avengers

    Looking forward to All-New Ultimates, Flash Gordon and Doctor Mirage.

    Probably what will be revealed along the story. I'm quite sure that man in glasses might've had something to do with it.

    As Dessad mentioned, it's a natural progression of what DnA did in their Realm of Kings IG mini, which is a natural progression of the reveal that members of the guards are substituted when killed, which started with Fang, I belive, in the Brood Saga in Uncanny X-Men, way, waaaaay back.

    Peace

    Man the comic god has blessed us with Avengers 3 weeks in a row, and this look to be another great issue.
