    Today is when it all blows up- do not miss these issues! You’ll want to read Avengers Academy first for the crossover, Thunderbolters. And Atlas fans, don’t get hysterical in the comments, I don’t want to have to bring you water and a paper bag to breathe into.

    A happy/sad day as we get a new issue of (Agents of) Atlas, but it is the last issue for the forseeable future.

    Atlas is such a beautiful book. Thanks to you (and Hardman).

    Hey! I loved that ‘What If?’! Another great issue! I hope we see some Venus, Khanata and Namora kicking ass in the final issue too. Will the final issue be double-sized? Also, yuck, Bob.

    So Much Awesome!!!!! It should be illegal to make two series this Awesome, I mean Jeff, You guys are making so many other books look BAD! But hey keep it up, everyone needs something to aspire to!

    Oh and you must promise me that Rulk will rock the stache in your Hulk book! Why? If Axe Cop has taught me anything it is that that nothing is more powerful than a man with a mustache. NOTHING.

    Heath, we’re going to have a summit just to settle this for the future. WILL RED HULK ROCK THE ‘STACHE???

    Red rockin’ the stache at this point wouldn’t make any sense… not that it made much sense that it wasn’t there in the first place… but I digress….

    Rulk, making sense? You crack me up! But hey It’d be AWESOME and you have to remember, the original Hulk didn’t start off Green, neither did Beast start out blue and hairy. Plus it is common knowledge that mustaches increase your Bad-Ass level by like 1000 points so uh yeah.

    I wouldn’t say Red Hulk not having the stache didn’t make sense.

    After all, Banner used to rock a stubbly beard for a while that didn’t translate to the Hulk.

    But yes, something needs to happen to cause Rulk to start rocking the soup strainer.

    I don’t know if you guys have read Hulk #24 yet but, without giving to much away Jeph Loeb as set up the Red Hulk in the story to be used by the Avengers as their secret weapon on the really dangerous missions. If I am reading it right, the potential is there for the character to be thrown into the mix of some really interesting new stories and interacting with some new characters (ie, the other Avengers teams). Man, Red Hulk with the Secret Avengers anybody? Jeff my friend, I have a feeling you are going to enjoy playing with your new shiny red toy!

    If you haven’t been following the solicits, he’ll be in Avengers.

    Atlas #4 rocked the party! It’s good to see the comic able to go out with a bang. Incidentally, for those who may be interested: While going through my comics I found issue #15 of “Golden-Age Men of Mystery” published by AC Comics. The first half of the issue is all about Captain 3-D, the Joe Simon and Jack Kirby creation that served as the inspiration for Roy Thomas’ original 3-D Man. It even features a short essay by Thomas. Most of you probably aren’t the uber-geek that I am, but I thought it was an interesting bit of comic history. BTW, I found this issue in the $.50 bin, so it would probably be cheap.

    Good Luck with Hulk #25 Parker – you have some… well, actually, anything you do with the book has to be better than what Loeb did with it!

    Hi Beast, thanks for the info. Just saying Jeph as shown the fans in his final issue how Red Hulk finds himself in that position.

    I just want to say I’m really enjoying how you’re writing Juggernaut.

    I think I owe you an apology Mr. Parker.
    I was very skeptical and worried about the new direction of the Thunderbolts. I was uneasy about the first three issues as well. I didn’t know how anything would work and the crossovers seem like they would overtake the story.
    In this issue, you have managed to shut up all the doubts and cynicism I had about where the team was heading. This was possibly the most airtight and exhilarating issue I read in a long time. The spreads of the three fights going on at the same time were brilliant.
    I am sorry that I doubted you Mr. Parker. You will not be hearing complaints from me in the future. Thank you for your wonderful work.

    What the ****? Bob was turned into some freakish, ugly alien form right out of a 1950s horror film? What???? Jeff, did you always plan to transform him physically in this way? Ever since that first “upchuck my stomach” scene in the diner oh-so-long-ago? I’ll admit, I understand why you did it (50s theme and all), but I was sad as well — it kinda delegates our resident space boy into a freakish bit character that no kid will want to play on the playground. If he can change old Jimmy into young Jimmy, why can’t he turn his ugly alien body back into the Bob we all have known and loved since the 50s?

    Can I use your question in a final letters column Scott?

    Oh yes, my friend. Without question (sniff – final column). Just leave out the “What the ****?” :)

    Mr. Parker,

    with respect to the last three comments I have to say that you are a very considerate writer. Cool!

    Hey, Jeff, is that Venus on the preview cover of Chaos War #2? Are we to expect our Atlas friends in the Chaos War?
