April 2008 Reads Part III.

Incredible Hercules #116 Let me start out by saying that I love this series. It's got everything; action, drama, witty-dialogue, comedy; I can't say enough about it. And this is coming from arguably the world's biggest Hercules hater. Even the recap pages are super funny. Just go out and buy it, you can thank me later. This one has the added bonus of The Eternals and a Celestial in San Francisco, so it has awesomeness written all over it. Next month; Herc assembles "The God Squad" to go and fight the Skrull Gods. I didn't know the Skrull's had Gods, but I'm already way too excited for that one. I really wish this series was bi-monthly. That would be awesome. If anyone has Joe Quesada's work phone, I'd appreciate it if you could forward that to me. I promise I'll only call him 79 times a day.

Wolverine: Origins #24: Bizarre start to this one, but it was also pretty funny. Of course when Deadpool is involved in the story, you kind of expect that to happen. Really interesting ending though, I think this storyline wraps up next month, and I think they finally reveal who contracted Deadpool to take Logan down. There was a lot of interesting psychological breakdown of both characters that kind of gave a new insight to each character. The thing that sucks is that obviously both of them make it out ok, because this story was set back in Logan's past (he was wearing his old brown costume that I always preferred) so the "shocking ending" really isn't that shocking, because you know Logan is going to be ok.

X-Factor #30: This one was pretty good, and that was mainly because I think there was only three panels that actually showed Arcade, and I think he only spoke in one. So, that's actually a bonus whenever there's a story featuring Arcade as the villain; the less of him you see or hear, the better. Longshot still has yet to make an appearance, I'm thinking that Mojo is involved with Arcade somehow and that's how Longshot gets involved. Or I could be totally wrong. I guess we'll find out next month. In a twist ending, Mutant Town is probably not going to be the same ever again. Spoiler: it's gonna get blowed up. Since this series mainly revolves around Mutant Town, I'm curious to see where this series goes.

X-Men: Divided We Stand #1: This was an interesting book, it contained about four or five different stories about certain characters and what they are up to since the end of the of the Messiah Complex. It was interesting, but I don't know if it was necessary and I really don't think it was worth an extra dollar to buy it. Oh well.

Tomorrow my list looks like: Hulk #3 (seems like it's been awhile since the last issue came out for some reason), Mighty Avengers #12 (I think another Skrull is revealed in this issue), Ms. Marvel #26, Uncanny X-Men #497, Wolverine: First Class #2, and X-Force #3. Wow, that's a lot. I'm also thinking of buying; Hulk vs. Hercules: When Titans Clash, and New Exiles #5. I'm going to flip through both of them off the rack and make a decision.
