  • The Terror of the JADE CLAW


    Over at Marvel.com I talk a bit more about how Jimmy Woo runs into a world of hurt by doing the Marvel equivalent of looking up an old girlfriend on Facebook. Enter the JADE CLAW! DEATH TO THE ATLAS EMPIRE!!!

    Cripes, that’s gorgeous art. Dan Panosian is the bomb.

    I like how he’s suddenly channeling Toppi- Dan draws a terrific dragon (or in this case, sea serpent).

    Beautiful art, very atmospheric and stylish! :-D

    The Jade Claw story is going to be awesome! :-D

    Please God, let Temugin get to do some heavyweight powerhouse stuff soon. I’ll be really good and give to charity and not read Playboy so much. Amen.

    I finish today the seven number and is incredible. Namor and Namora relationship love very real. The backstory with Mr Lao very original with the origins of Atlas empire.

    Is the ongoing serie that i enjoy every month and can´t wait for the next issue. A good idea publish two numbers in the same month and must continue in the future, please.

    You don´t write for tpb and it´s positive because you have a story that continue but don´t cut the rythm. And the best of hall it´s accesible for new and old reader.

    You join the Dark Reign scenario with good pulse and very natural. When Hood Cameo?.

    The tittle of comicbulletin his right: “the best superhero book Marvel has running right now”.

    Good luck Jeff.

    Agreed, it really is nice to have a book that isn’t written for TPB’s, and isn’t “decompressed”. Decompressed is just a bullshit word meaning “thin” anyway. It’s one of those words like “pre-owned”. Eyeroll-worthy word. Parker’s writing actually has some meat to it. You don’t find yourself going “where’s the beef?” with Parker’s stuff.

    You know what just struck me? Temugin’s prosthetic arm probably has at least two bombs in it.

    Jimmy Woo knows that Temugin wants his job, and also knows that Temugin is tens of thousands of times stronger than he is.(Whenever he Chi-amps, anyway) By now Jimmy has had some ninja put a bomb in the prosthetic arm so he can end Temugin with a button-push if he needs to.

    Jade Claw doubtless has spies everywhere. She’d know how powerful Temugin is. So she probably had a ninja put a bomb in the prosthetic arm as well.

    Finally Temugin’s dad probably put a bomb in there when he made the arm for Temmy.

    Jesus. No one stand close to Temmy. That arm has gotta be like ninety-percent bomb by this point.

    Temugin’s so full of bomb, the funeral home gave him a great deal on tiny coffins because he bought them in bulk.

    Temugin’s so full of bomb, Nitro mistook him for his long lost brother!
