First on my To Read pile once I got my box from DCBS was Wrath Of The Eternal Warrior #8 from +Valiant , part 2 of "Labyrinth." Venditti and Allen absolutely knock it out of the park with this issue, another fantastic installment in what has quickly become my favorite monthly comic.

As the editorial mill turns all of my beloved Marvel characters in to grist, it makes me very happy to know that I can turn to the Valiant universe for solid stories, well told, month in and month out.
The official home of Valiant Comics. The story starts here.

Marvel is sorely testing my patience with this sort of stuff. I knew, as soon as Brian Michael Bendis took over on Iron Man that he was going to change the character and otherwise put him through the wringer, since it has always been my impression that Bendis (like the other members of the Marvel Brain Trust) doesn't like Tony and thinks he is inherently broken and has to be belittled, jobbed, and pushed aside for "real" heroes. We saw this nearly non-stop in the post CW era, followed by Matt Fraction's Invincible Iron Man which required Tony to repeatedly "own" his many mistakes and beg for help for every problem he faced because of his inherent lack of worth, as well as fall off the wagon as grist to the editorial mill for Fear Itself.

I don't have any problem with a new armored character, but given the amount of comics Marvel has featuring heroines, why not give her a title of her own instead of pushing Tony out of his own title? Seems to me because Marvel is having a hard time of telling stories based around the traditional story engines for their characters and titles, that they are instead focusing on gimmicks and short term patches ("Cap is a HYDRA agent! Thor is Jane Foster now! Random groups of heroes form Avengers teams and then split up 6 months later!").

Each passing month I get less and less interested in the Big Two. And announcements like this do not do anything but further drive me away from their products.
Iron Man gets a very different kind of upgrade.

Look at the guys in this match, especially on Team USA. Big Show, Zack Ryder, Mark Henry, Kane, Jack Swagger, the Dudley Boyz, it's like they booked this match for me specifically... #GetBackToTheWrestling

What is being binge watched right now in my house? #SingMeASongOfALassThatIsGone   #Outlander  

(For what it is worth I prefer the season 1 opening with the bagpipes, but as season 2 is set in Paris, this version with the strings and French lyrics is extremely themely, so...)

If you ask me, no, they do not. And they have been moving in this direction for several years. #comics  
Marvel has announced several new "ongoing" series as part of Marvel NOW!. But are any Marvel series truly "ongoing" anymore?
