Sold! That'll be neat, one CW-style #8 to put in with my CW comics, one full-image cover (I'm assuming) to go with the She-Hulk ones. That'll keep my obsessive-compulsive-radar from firing every time I try to rearrange my comic shelf. Hopefully the even-further-enlarged run of #8 will result in even more readers for the book long-term.
(And perhaps the sell-out may have led to more readers not just trusting that the book will be available on shelf, and adding Shulkie to their pull list, that just occurred to me.)
Silly issue? All for that. I loved the Spider-Man crossover. I'm hard-pressed to think of things that make me laugh more than "...is because I'm black."
Major happening for regular cast, lemme see, what could this... oh my goddess, Mallory's pregnant! Hmm, will the baby have a square head? Ouch. Cesarian please.
With regards to Thing.. well, I admit, I was going to wait for the trade. Stu would not approve But I'm being sorely tempted to pick up #8 and see if I can track down all the others in back-issues...
I had a bizarre thought (while I was flipping through Single Green Female working out what 'Vol.1 #4' was - I remember the stories fine, I just forget what issue number they happen in) - Whiz Kid one-shot. No battles or villains, just a kind of comic book sitcom - to see what it's like for superpowered people who aren't saving the world (or at least haphazardly trying to, like the GLXers). Does WK hang out with the other mail-room speedsters after hours? For that matter, do speedsters and super-strength-ers and shoot-energy-beams-from-hands-ers hang out together, or do they have their own cliques? Do they carpool, or just jog to work in half a second? Is it tough to stay in shape without breaking treadmills?
(Why Whiz Kid? I dunno, she's cute, why not?)
Edit: Aaaand, I managed to forget that. Happy birthday!
