Are you trying to say? That! Ape ejaculated or sprayed her. She should have cut off his ding dong.
--Previous Message-- : Well, I'm going to start this off right now : and say that I liked Palmiotti and Gray on : this title better. I liked how they stuffed : in extra 70's characters in all of their : stories. Had they written this issue, I'm : sure they would have stuffed in the Savage : Land Mutates or the Lizard People or some : other Savage Land baddie, in addition to the : Devil Dinosaur plot. However, I also admit : that I like Zeb Wells on the book so far. He : has kept a lot of what I like about this : series -- genuinely funny moments mixed in : with tons of action and nice : characterization. I thought the bit with : Paladin swatting the butterflies and the : following results were hilarious, and the : bit with Colleen getting doused with that : ape pheromone stuff, thereby becoming the : sexiest "ape woman" on the planet : (followed by her being swarmed by apes) was : also a riot. I mean, these were genuinely : funny moments, as opposed to another certain : writer who only "thinks" he's : funny and assumes everyone will think he's : funny, too, especially when he belittles : characters when he does his stuff. Anyway, : the end where Humbug gets eaten alive by : those prehistoric alien bugs (or whatever : they were) was a decent cliffhanger. It : looks like Wells is going to try and do big : things with the character. The only thing I : didn't care for was Clay Mann's artwork. I : liked it in some places but disliked it in : others, but maybe he'll improve as time goes : on. This does happen. So, I still love this : book, and so far Wells has stepped up to the : plate, although I do miss Palmiotti and : Gray. : : --Previous Message-- : So the team heads out to meet SHIELD thanks : to : everyone's favorite mercenary, Paladin. : Turns out that they are being hired (and : paid handsomely) to capture not Devil but : Moon Boy! So it's off to the Savage Land to : track down the protohuman. : : I thought this was another good issue but it : unforunately had a few flaws. There was : plenty of action to go around this time out, : and once more we got to see Shang-Chi go all : Master of Kung-Fu. Tarantula had a good : showing too. I feel bad for Humbug, but I : imagine that this will have something to do : with what goes down with him during the : "WWH" crossover comics. I really : like how Colleen seems to care for him, like : a big sister watching out for her kid : brother sometimes. I think Col recognizes : that Humbug's not a bad guy and just needs : some guidance. I really like that. I also : thought Shang-Chi shined character-wise in : this comic book. The bit with him not : wearing a shirt on the deck was great. : : There were some minor quibbles, such the : jump from seeing Paladin, Shang, Cat, and : Tarantula (whom I will now call : "Chula") attacked by the bugs to : Shang being at the bottom of the waterfall, : which was a little confusing. Nothing major : but I had to re-read a few pages to get the : flow of things. : : But there was a major problem here, and I : really hope it is rectified next issue: : THERE WAS NO DEVIL DINOSAUR! You cannot : promise Devil Dinosaur on the cover and not : deliver! Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled : that Devil and Moon Boy are involved with : this story -- moreso that it actually seems : to make some sort of sense as to why SHIELD : would want Moon. But dammit, I wanted some : Devil Dinosaur and there wasn't any! The : next issue had better be filled with Devil : action or I'll get really hot! Don't toy : with me Marvel!! RAAARHRGHHH! : : Ahem. Discounting that I am, how should I : say this, a big Devil Dinosaur fan, this : was a fine comic book which truly embodies a : lot of what I want from a monthly comic : purchase: it had action, pathos, : characterization, a cliffhanger, made sense, : and wasn't glum and depressed for its : running length. This series just keeps on : impressing me! : : :
