The preview for Mighty Avengers #24, out next week, plus one of my favourite scenes from Incredible Herc.

This is actually the second series where Sandoval has followed Pham (the first being Incredible Herc); Sandoval's art there made me an instant fan, and I've been waiting for him to do another gig I'd be interested in buying (half of something by Loeb and Young X-Men don't count).

In an earlier thread here where we talked about Amadeus Cho, I mentioned a moment in #120 that really sold me on him as a character; this is it.  Having been knocked into space after refusing to do anything in the midst of the final battle with the alien gods:

Also a great Snowbird moment there; that's one of the things I like best about this title; the writers work in character arcs even for guest characters like her that take into account recent events.

Anyway, the preview for MA #24.  I was uncertain about the first arc, but it had a great final twist, and, as the first couple of pages show, it lends to plenty of plot ideas.  Sandoval's art remains great.

I'm really not sure, though, that I buy that Cassie is the only one even remotely concerned about taking orders from "Wanda", the genocidal maniac who has reappeared without explanation.

Also, Sandoval drawing Herc and Cho again.

I wonder if Vision and Cassie working up to telling the rest of the group about Wanda but constantly getting interrupted will be a running gag.

For some reason, I get the feeling that Loki!Wanda is deliberately trying to keep this information from getting to Billy and Tommy. But I'm probably just reading too much into things.

I get the same feeling. It would make sense, anyway.

I really want to like MA, but the "tralala don't look at the man behind the curtain" is a bit too blatant. Also, I've seen the original pencils for the last issue in Young Guns Artists, the inker really screwed the pooch.

On the shallow side, DOOM! DOOM IS PRETTY! And yay for continuity shoutouts and Loki IMMEDIATELY playing games behind Osborn's back. But why did Normie get all hesitant?

Yeah, I really don't like the set up.

Well, that didn't take long, did it?

I mean, sure, it was obvious that with an entire bunch of people more powerful than him, Osborn was eventually going to get fucked over, but I personally thought it'd take longer than four months (our-time) and only one set of stories in each book for it to begin.

I always seem to forgot any problems I have with Mighty Avengers when I see Hank in his bitching outfit...

Motto. It's the first costume of his I've liked at all.

Is it Loki pretending to be Wanda... or vice-versa?
