I don't know whay's going to happen to the Wraith plotline, since he doesn't seem to be getting too much play here lately. I would like a double-sized finale or another 3 issues, myself. I understand there's already a sequel or 3rd part to this space opera in the works.
But how convincingly the writer made us believe that Ultron would consider becoming flesh after all these decades! And weaving in Bendis' MA arc couldn't have been easy.
I know how you feel about the Avengers franchise. I wouldn't believe me either after the wretched NA and almost as wretched MA. but the last two issues, while not up to Thomas or Stern caliber, were certainly as good as most other Avengers-era writers have given us. And no one is more amazed than I.
I wish I could say more about the DON # 2, and I was going to send you my copies of 1 & 2 if I found I had kept # 1, but when I arrived home, it was nowhere to be found, so I must have given it away. The only book I'm keeping other than the Avegers books is The Twelve, though I thought I might have decided to hang on to DON # 1, too.
Claremont's New Exiles 1 & 2 were great, lighthearted, Old School Marvel fun, and with fine artwork. It would take a lot to make me give up this book, but I hope that the forthcoming arcs aren't as overcrowded as this one is turning out to be.
Alternate universe books/plots, well, a little goes a long long way with me, so the sudden crush of Iron Maidens, Blood Witches, female Black Panthers, good Sabertooths, black Namors, male Mystiques, and young blond Remys just overloaded me and I think, the story too.
If this trend continues on the book in arc after arc, I probably will drop it. but I like the alternate Rogue and I've always been a big Psylocke and Sage fan.
I bought 5 books yesterday and that was the most I've purchased in many-a-moon.
