Don't get me wrong, I've been enjoying the series whenever it comes out, but the bits with the dinosaurs bothered the fuck out of me.

Oh ya, I just don't like how a lot of this arc is "hey, you know what would be cool? We'll make references to stuff"

I stopped reading after Wolvie started acting like an emo bitch and whining about how they didnt take him seriously or some crap. I can barely remember, it was so lame.

WHy do people want to make Wolvie an emo bitch all the time? Little bitch.

"I'm a beaten man..I could easily kill all these inbred pussies and protect my family, but instead I'll be an emo little whiney bitch. I wish I could pop my claws so I could commit selfharm!"

Because the moment Wolverine pops his claws out in this series and gets his balls back, it's going to be fucking awesome.

Haven't we seen enough symbiotes Mark?

Personally I think Carnage was one too many...

I'd be more excited if I didn't already basically get my fill of something very similar to this in the Cable & Deadpool final issue.

Seriously, shitload of dinosaurs hopped up on synthetic symbiotes.

It's pretty good, but it's no Hellen Killer #1

In 1901, twenty-one year old college student Helen Keller, with the aid of a fantastical device invented by her friend and mentor, Alexander Graham Bell, regains her sight and hearing as well as near super-human strength and agility. Helen is enlisted by the Secret Service to protect President William McKinley who has been targeted for assassination by Anarchists. As a deeper conspiracy to destroy America unfolds around her, Helen discovers that her new abilities come with a dark and terrifying price…

It would have been a better solicit had it been a few months earlier.

The delays on this are getting goofy.

this book has been hysterical camp fun, but career defining? not for millar, though mcniven's pencils are grand.

There's also Nextwave.

RRRAAAAAGGGGGHHHHH!!! Action! Excitement! Explosions! The Highest Anti-Terrorism Effort, or H.A.T.E. (a subsidiary of the Beyond Corporation ) put Nextwave together to fight Bizarre Weapons of Mass Destruction. When Nextwave discovers H.A.T.E. and Beyond are terrorist cells themselves, and that the BWMDs were intended to kill them, they are less than pleased. In fact, they are rather angry. So they make things explode. Lots of things. Starring Monica Rambeau (formerly Captain Marvel and Photon), Aaron Stack (Machine Man), Tabitha Smith (X-Force's Meltdown), monster-hunter Elsa Bloodstone and the Captain! Guest-starring Fin Fang Foom! If you like anything, you will LOVE Nextwave! BOOM!

I don't think McNiven's stuff on this book is anywhere near his best work.

i've got his best work hanging in my bedroom, a quick old school iron man sketch he did for me last year.

It isn't either of their best work IMHO
But it's a fun read, for ANOTHER alternate future storyline

It's the only alternate future timeline a comic has done in a long time that I've given a flying fuck about, I'll say that.

This arc is a fucking blast. It may not be breaking new ground, but it's riding the shit out of old ground. Just fun as hell.
