I totally forgot I was reading a Marvel book which was to its strength. Even down the the way the panels were constructed and lined just felt like those in charge at Marvel really let them do whatever the hell they wanted to do and it turned out amazingly. The best thing about the issue though was it humour and though you all seem a little uneasy or unable to understand the "cultural" aspects displayed thats where I found the best chuckles. I know probably as much as ya'll about being Muslim but you don't need to know anything to read this its all there. Its in the way they interact not what they are saying.
Anyway, book of the week without a doubt
I agree. Book of the week no doubt. And I really wasn't trying to say that I didn't understand some things (though I did say that) but what I meant was that I liked how we're getting culture cues in context instead of through exposition. And I might miss some things first blush, but I like that Wilson is just dropping us right into the character's life and we're going to learn about her through actions, and dialogue. That's great. I laughed a lot, too, man. This book was something I'd been really looking forward to and still it took me by surprise.
