    So if you love the Leone spaghetti westerns, -especially Lee Van Cleef- the Old Man Hawkeye issue 2 preview that was posted earlier today should be right up your alley.

    I recognized the scene the creative team were paying almost direct homage to immediately and squeed with delight. Pretty awesome to see references to the movies which got me into comics (in an indirect way) finally make it into a storyline. Much less this one.

    Is it Wednesday yet?

    Same for me. And, I must be sincere... it being illustrated by Allred has me squee'ing. Talk about an artist being born to work on a specific character.

    And oh my did he get left in a bad predicament. Possibly thousands of years in a cocoon?

    I wasn't terribly impressed with X-Men Red as it literally restarts the trope of X-Person talks to the government to get the trust they'll never get and people still shun mutants despite all the other super beings on the planet and a bad public display by a villain makes it worse.

    I didn't think I'd care for Avengers No Surrender but it grew on me and it's a Grandmaster story and there's a previous Grandmaster introduced.

    Iron Fist rides a dragon. Cool.

    You're correct, Allred is perfect for Marvel cosmic.

    I'm not sure where I stand on Tales of Suspense as it seems like an Infinity War tie-in without calling it one. Story and character-wise it's not bad (definitely padding to fit five issues), but Travel Foreman's art is all over the place (not a fan of his ape-like, exaggerated faces.) I'll stop with this month's 102.

    The Marvel character Captain Midlands appear in the Wisdom and Captain Britain and MI13 comics and his shield is supposed to be made of the fictive 'nanominium gloss'. I have looked after information about what 'nanominium gloss' is and what Powers it has but can't find anything. Do anybody know about it and can tell me?

    @Gamiel, outside of the general googling, all I get is:
    • Captain Midlands Shield: A round shield with an anti-magic nanominium gloss bearing the Lion Rampant Symbol. I never read Wisdom or M13 so...
    Well, I have to be on Twitter for now and naturally, I am following Old Man Hawkeye's creative team. I dared to post my fan art of avatar and they liked it.

    [face_dancing] :eek: So that eradicated my super grump for a bit.

    Same here. I should have mentioned that I have read about the anti-magic part but don't understand how it works.

    That's what I want to know, if it deflects, absorbs or redirects magic, or just cancel it right out.

    Just read the last year and a half or so of Invincible Iron Man. #1-11, and 593-596, so I'm all caught up! Absolutley enjoying it so far. I love comics, but rarely have the time to catch up with them, so I dedicated the last day to doing so. Honestly, I really like RiRi. I know that might be contentious, but whatever. I can't wait to see Tony back too, and see where this arc goes.

    I would say that's a ticking clock for how long Old Man Logan will be around but OLM always seemed something finite, especially since the original brand is returning.

    Was listening to Fatman on Batman podcast and Grant Morrison was on and, I hadn't heard this before, but he's doing Arkham Asylum 2 at some point, probably way in the future, but it's on the docket. Didn't say much aside from having it in the future with Daimen and Bruce. I think he said, gleefully, that he's totally okay if it destroys the legacy of the original.

    Speaking of old sequels, it's been over for awhile but Dark Knight III: The Master Race was pretty decent and in the end old Batman is back to being young Batman again so it's kind of a full circle for the DK era Batman. the story has always really been about Old Bruce trying to outrun time and death and he finally did it. Although the sequels are pretty unnecessary, DKIII is a okay ending. Although Miller was already saying he has a DKIV in mind...

    Well, original Wolverine has one of the Infinity stones. Perhaps OML, I don't know, maybe they will become combined.

    Guardians of the Galaxy 146-150. Absolutely digging it! Just a fun time. Really curious to get into the Infinity Countdown event. Gotta dig into some other series now. Not sure which I'll pick yet.

    I’ll take Old Man Hawkeye over the rest those older incarnations.:cool:

    That said, of those Wolvie mini series the Madripoor arc could be fun.

    Old Man Hawkeye 2 was great, very interesting to see where he ends up this issue. I wonder if the writer will use that in conjunction with Hawkeye's upbringing and origin?

    Okey dokey:

    Wonder Woman 40
    Batman 40
    Action Comics 997
    Port Of Earth 4
    Marvel 2 in 1 #3
    Avengers 680
    Old Man Hawkeye 2

    It was the last new comic day for the store I use before they close. I think Old Man Logan was out this week and it was sold out along with Cap and Dr Strange.

    Oh I have a new place. I used to go to it. The one closing was along the way while at work. So now I have to get comics on my own time!
