Unstoppable Wasp #4 was the first time that the book really clicked with me. It had Jeremy Whitley who I had enjoyed on Thor vs Hulk: Champions of the Universe, and Gurihiru, who made a huge contribution to the success of The Unbelievable Gwenpool (most of the credit goes to Dr McNinja's Christopher Hastings, whose Six Million Dollar Man comes out this week), but I just wasn't enjoying it.

Probably I should have even glanced at volume 1. Or made an effort to catch up with the large supporting cast of people who weren't Janet, Bobbi or Nadia. I found the first 3 issues confusing because I hadn't made the effort to catch up. Then Unstoppable Wasp #4 made a connection with me that elevated it above the normal Marvel book.

"Like I said, there are going to be expectations about what this character will be like, what with that big old "POOL" on the end of her name. She's probably going to be a mercenary. She's going to be expected to be funny -- maybe have that awareness that she's in a comic book. That's what made me come to the idea that she's from a "real world" and has actually read Marvel comics before somehow becoming transported into that universe. And it's like she thinks she's suddenly wound up in "Grand Theft Auto" or something."

In the new season of Legend of Korra (which is VASTLY improved over the previous two, by the by), they're exploring the family of Toph Bei Fong, and as such, I thought that I'd post some stuff from the recent Rift mini-series from the interquel comics from between Airbender and Korra.
