Yeah….Death of the Family was just as amazing as everyone made it out to be. How the heck did you guys wait a month between issues? I devoured the whole thing at once…and I don’t think I could have done it any other way!! That was an awesome story, hands down. I’ve always known about the joker – you can’t really miss him in all of the movies that have come out, but wow, I really liked him as a character here. He completely had me hooked and intrigued – as sadistic as it might be…I kind of want to see him in another story. We don’t really know he’s gone. We saw him fall…but we saw nothing after that. I can hope, right?
Also, THANK GOD for the return of Harper!! I was so excited when I saw her again!! I kind of wonder what they have in store for her…I’ve heard rumors of the next Robin, but I’ve also heard rumors saying someone else is going to fill that role (I’m not entirely sure who)…but I hope they keep her around somehow!
Final Opinion: Must Read!!
Wolverine & The X-Men TPB #1
This was just a fun read. I’m not entirely sure what happened in Schism (though I was amused about how some of the kids were trying to take credit for it) but this story seems to be a direct consequence. It was fun to learn about and follow all of the students – they were all so much fun no matter what they were doing. I was really enjoying getting to know them all. Seem’s like Wolverine has his hands full, huh? It was also really weird to see Xavier at the beginning…I did a double take. Everything I’ve been reading has been post AvX, and I know this series started before that, but I still wasn’t expecting it. Oh…and what the heck happened to Kitty at the end of this book? Seriously?!? Did she just get pregnant in a matter of minutes?

Daredevil TPB #2
Mark Waid is doing an incredible job with this series – I love everything about Daredevil! I mean, I do attribute at least part of that to the novelty of having a blind superhero. I had no idea that was the case until I picked up the first TPB, and I find that concept fascinating to begin with. On top of that, the character are really just enjoyable to read. The storyline that’s running through the entire thing is interesting – the idea of this drive with the secrets of all of the major crime organizations. I also really enjoyed this trade in particular because we got a little Peter Parker (remember that I really haven’t seen much of Peter Parker except as the spectral bit that pops up in Superior Spider-Man. So it was nice to see him in control of his own body!) I will definitely be picking up the next trade of this one!

Morning Glories TPB Vol #1
The last couple of series I’ve been reading have just been knocking it out of the park! And Morning Glories definitely carried on that tradition. This story was awesome! I was totally intrigued from the very first page straight through to the last, and I’m am having to seriously hold back and not run out and grab the second volume today! Must wait until next Saturday…But yes, this is a story that keeps you guessing, with a cast of characters that are all intriguing in their own right. With having so many different characters, you would think some would shrink into the background, but Nick Spencer has made each person such an individual and given them enough time that we’ve gotten to know them all.
I’m really confused by Jade now…I mean, that was the same Jade that appeared at the end of the book…just, grown up? I am very confused. But I love it! I can see why people are comparing it to Lost. And I really just want more info on what’s going on!
