New Comics for August 12, 2009

This is 2 weeks worth of comics.

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #'s 601 & 602: The fall out of #600 continues! Mary Jane is back in town and there are some interesting things going on. It seems like MJ knows Peter is Spider-Man still. I guess this means he told her before they broke up. It's nice to have MJ as an interesting SUPPORTING character and not a main character like she was before. There is also some interesting set up with The Chameleon, he's kidnapped Peter to take his place in JJJ's administration...and it seems like he dumped Pete in a vat of acid! Gotta wait til next week to see what happens!

DEADPOOL #13: Deadpool decides that since he has more money than ever and has to lay low that it's as good a time as any to become a PIRATE! And every pirate needs a parrot...enter: BOB in a parrot suit! By the end of this issue Deadpool realizes he isn't the only pirate with eyes on the isle of the rich he's set to plunder AND he gets a navigator for his ship...a blind tourist guide!

DEADPOOL: MERC WITH A MOUTH #2: Beyond the great Jaws parody cover by Arthur Suydam this issue is showing this series is starting to find it's stride. Deadpool meets the head of his zombie counter part and is actually suprised by it. The Zombie Deadpool Head or Headpool is pretty interesting as he seems to be able to 'hear' the other voices in Deadpool's head. I'm very much looking forward to seeing where this goes!

FABLES #87: Witches, Part 1 of 5: The Great Fables Crossover is done and everyone is back in their own books. But now that the Adversary and Kevin Thorn are defeated...what damage has been done? The Adversary had the power to keep some rather nasty Fables in check. Mister Dark, the boogyman, is free and tracking down the Fables, Fabletown has been destroyed and Baba Yaga is free in The Office with a desire to get revenge...It's up to the Witches of Fables to come up with new spells to protect themselves and create a new home. Oh, and we are 13 issues away from FABLES #100!

WAR OF KINGS #6 of 6: This was a pretty lackluster series. I'm just glad it's over and I'll be taking a break from the next crossover, 2 mini series of 5 issues each that continues from this series...not really interested.

I was also able to finally get STRANGERS IN PARADISE, VOL. 5 thanks to Leonard at Nostalgia, Ink! and I added Man-Thing to my Classic Marvel Figure Collection.
