      Murumasa seems quite the badass, and interestingly it is mostly implied. He doesn't actually demonstrate the usual badassery indicaters like slaughtering 20 ninjas. He just radiates this message of don't get on my bad side.

    Issue 28.


Ah. So when I get the issue I can expect dead ninjas or the equivalent. Cool. I love those.

I also find it interesting that I appear to be having a unique experience by reading 29 without the benefit of 28. I almost like it better this way. I've been known to read novels in a series out of order and often this has given me unique experiences. I read Dune Messiah (book 2 in the series) before I read Dune (book 1 in the series). Thus I read book 2 without the benefit of book 1 and then I read book 1 with all the knowledge gained by reading book 2. It was cool.

    At this point, Gabby talking with Forbush Man about paint drying would likely be fun reading.


I know, right? I love this kid. And I'm really not a kid person. But she's cute and cuddly and then she stabs people. That dichotomy makes her compelling to me. Also the stabbing balances out the cuddliness so the latter never gets overpowering. (Stabbing doesn't need to be balanced as I can never get enough stabbing.)

      I love Gorgon.

    He is cool here. And he is cool last week in OML #33. Who knows which came first! But as a character he needs a lot of refining done to his chronology and concept for me to appreciate him as the villain as near as much. He still holds promise. It'd be good for him to challenge Lord Deathstrike or Mandarin for control of some place.


Gorgon versus Mandarin is a fight I would pay to see. I mean, yeah, I would pay $3.99 - it's not a televised wrestling match for crying out loud. I wouldn't pay $75. But really, Gorgon versus Mandarin and a guest-star appearance by Iron Man would be great. I'd like to see Laura and Tony Stark interact. Gabby and Tony Stark would also be fun.
