    What Helix? There is no Helix. :shifty

  • Mysterious Stranger

    AT LAST!!! He got the term right! Of course now I have to actually comment about the solicitations… *sigh*

    Origins becoming an ongoing I think is a good thing. If it was anyone else but “The Man” himself writing I’d be worried. But it’s Larry Hama so it’ll be good. And any chance to get more Rock ‘n’ Roll stories (since he’s been ignored so far in the main title) is a good thing in my book.

    The main title I’m finding lacking somewhat. Not sure what exactly I’m not feeling about it but there is something a little off. Maybe it’s that so much is happening in so few pages that I’m feeling short-changed. But I’m willing to stick it out and see where it goes. This issue sounds like more of the same, lots going on, so hopefully things pick up between now and then.

    Helix. Well we can always use more female Joes so I guess she’ll do.

    I do wish IDW would get off this multiple cover kick. Are they really selling more copies just because they are doing multiple covers? If that’s what it takes to keep the Joe comics alive then I fear for longevity of this line.
