Comics this week

Countdown to Final Crisis #6- Countdown has been nothing short of terrible these few weeks. Finally there is light at the end of the tunnel. #6 is a narration from Buddy Blank, a no-name low on the totem pole scientist helping the heroes with the 'Great Disaster' (which was a little bit of a letdown). It shows how badly the writers had botched the heroes as the one issue that worked in about a month is one that the heroes hardly showed up. But beggars can't be choosers. Kill off all the heroes if you have to, just keep this up.

Avengers: The Initiative #10- MVP (or to be more exact, one of the MVP clones) continue his rampage through Camp Hammond in this issue and boy, did he do some damage or what! Let just say at least one of the Scarlet Spiders bit it this issue. Avengers: The Initiative is one book that has been surprising good, maybe even the best book that came out of the Civil War mess. Look out for the scene with Taskmaster when he show what an asshole he is, and why he could be perfect for Camp Hammond. I also like what is happening with Justice, he just never strike me as a Initiative kind of man. The large cast is still a problem but MVP can help with that problem next issue. I'll be here to (hopefully) see it happen.
