Not a big fan of the art in this week's Justice League preview. Havent read the issue yet though so that might change.

So from what I've picked up

Dark Beast created a cure for the vaccine that turns out to kill/sicken people who take it, which shocks everyone, and then Magik is just like fuck it brutally murders him?

That's hilarious.

I mean, technically speaking, that's entirely in character for both of them.

The issue is how it got to that point.

Seeing people on twitter finally turn on Roosenberg’s Uncanny X-Men is hilarious to me. Especially after they praised it so much until now. Calling it a grand experiment is a bit much too lol.

Like Waid's Champions wasn't good, but I caught some feels from adult Cyclops teaming up with Kamala to fight some trolls and them reuniting and having that friendship from young Scott's memories. Zub knows what he's doing and I appreciate it on every level.
Maybe they should just let Steve Orlando write Doom Patrol solo. I’d be into that
You sure? Are you really sure? Like on the one hand, after Midnighter and Midnighter and Apollo, I really like Steve Orlando.

But then there's JLA and Supergirl. And whatever that book was that he backdoor piloted out of the ending of Supergirl to bullshit the ending of Supergirl. I dropped that a couple issues in.

Speaking of Supergirl, isn’t Peter David’s run on that supposed to really weird (and good)?

I legit got no idea how they can fix Emma outside of saying it was a clone this entire time.
I mean, Hickman's going to handwave all of Rosenberg's run anyway, right? R's just getting the X-Men into the state that Hickman wants. How he gets there is totally going to get ignored. There's zero way Hickman will waste HoX or PoX panels dealing with this baggage.
Someone on the facebook group found a matching image. Possibly the Millar Ultimates omnibus...
Hm! That'd be a solid reprint, if true. Last one was 2009, I think.

A run ignoring something doesn't mean that something didn't happen.

And nothing irks me more than "Just don't talk about it" in comics, especially when the it is something really fucking vile.

The ending felt a bit anticlimactic (what ongoing comic book arc isn't?), but I still loved Guardians of the Galaxy #6

Like, having incomplete ressurected Thanos be thrown into a black hole was amazing. I hope this crosses over with Silver Surfer Black, and knowing Donny Cates of course it fucking will

Would you want it any other way? I mean, I know others would have but I'm excited.

Ewing's work on the annual just makes it painfully obvious how utterly dull and uninteresting Cates' run is.

I'm more nervous of Cates killing off Rocket because he suddenly has the clout to do that. Plus the whole nothing is the same bullshit.

Guardians was fine.

The biggest LOL YOU AIN'T DOING SHIT was Cap Marvel

Death of Captain Marvel 2 sounds too stupid to repeat

Thompson's doing what? I thought Cap Marvel was doing freaky friday filler arc.
