    Wow. Agents of Atlas was good. My LCS wasn’t done doing orders, so I couldn’t get Mysterius yet. But wow, that was well worth the wait. And i love how you did a callback to the 50′s story with Logan. MI-13 recognized Logan, but did Ken? I assume he did (possibly by scent), that’s why he singled him out.

    I haven’t read Mysterius yet, because I still have to catch up, but that cover is awesome.

    Loved AoA #5. Enigmatic robots can be so much trouble. I just have one question, when is Marvel going to have you do a story for Amazing Spider-Man?

    Very fun issue! :-D Loved how everyone felt like an individual even in the midst of all that fighting. This is a breath of fresh air after listening to to New Avengers all sound like the same generic hipster in their own book. Parker gives each character his/her own voice and it is niiiiice, mmmm.

    I give it a 9 out of 10 score. It would have been a 10/10 if only Temugin had exploded Ronin into a shower of gore with that kick. :-D

    But Jimmy very nicely asked Temugin not to splatter Ronin everywhere! Glad you enjoyed it.

    Thanks Laura! As for Spidey, who knows? It was fun having him in our book though.

    Y’know what I love about this panel?(Well, aside from the terrific energy of the scene) The way the texture of the skin is conveyed. Namorita looks like she has that low-bodyfat swimmers skin, and Venus looks like she has that skin that electrically attractive women tend to have, with just enough babyfat to be incredibly touchable. That subtle impression of skin texture can’t have been easy to create. Somebody put a lot of work into creating that effect.

    Gah, still haven’t gotten my AoA copy… yeah, Mysterius’ cover is GODLY. Is it an homage to something?
