I have the same problem with A-Force. I like it, but we’ve had two issues now and they haven’t finished getting the band together yet. And every time they collect a new member, they go through the same “who is this strange blue person who seems to know me but I don’t know?” Monster attacks, is temporarily repulsed, move on to next member.

Honestly it should be rule number 1 for comic writing – when starting a new series, don’t start writing for the trade until you have an audience. Comics are so expensive now that many people aren’t going to give you four issues to introduce the cast. You need to grab them in the first issue.

Well, as I discussed, MG&DD is badly paced even if they are writing for the trade–the repeated infodumps are going to look even worse in a trade. It’s like reading a novel where all the characters pause every twenty pages to sum up the plot so far. :)

She’s not adorkable the way most of them are; she’s spiky, tense, irritable and anti-social. Which sounds like she’s also unsympathetic and unlikable, but the book does a good job of explaining why she feels so alienated from everyone around her and why she’s so driven.

It sounds like she and Amadeus Cho need to have a teamup. Assuming Cho is still like he was back when he was Hercules’ buddy. It’s been a few years, I lost track of him.

MG&DD is something I’m likely to wait for the trade on. Really, I only buy two comics in pamphlet form these days; Giant Days, because John Allison (who has been on the blogroll here so long it still says Scary-Go-Round) and Patsy Walker, because the first issue was just that strong.

Considering Monstress tho.

You really need to be reading this comic.

For the fourth issue, the title is being changed to A Moon… A Girl… Romance… And Devil Dinosaur.

I really hope someone gets that.

Shouldn’t it become Devil Dinosaur Fights Crime first?

It’s actually pretty great. I think no one ever really knew what to do with Bruce Banner/The Hulk in the long term. Had a lot of changes even just recently. Doc Green. The working with SHIELD.

Amadeus Cho however is just straight up fun and considering he is pretty much the Tim Drake to Rick Jones’ Dick Grayson for the Hulk, becoming the Hulk is pretty organic.

Better than floating around Limbo. Though he was really great in the short series “Savage Wolverine”. Amadeus Cho had gone through a considerable growth spurt there looking more adult in appearance and behaviour. Instead of a superhero costume he had a well tailored 2-piece suit made of nano-bots with an AI called “Calvin”. That was quite fun too.
