I LOVE comic books. Always have, always will. I'm not a nutjob or anything, but man I was actually pretty aggravated when Thor: The Mighty Avenger got cancelled. The all-ages concept was done so smartly without talking down to kids OR adults and to top it off it was just plain well written. Straight up. Some hack was drawing it though. (I KID! I KID!)
So when they announced that Captain America: The Fighting Avenger was going to be a "thing" I was ecstatic. They were continuing the line! Actually one of the best parts about it all is that they never said anything official that TMA and TFA were in a shared world etc. etc. because really, WHO CARES? Good comics is good comics!
Then the hammer hit the fan. Thor got cancelled, we know the story. Then to make matters worse the Fighting Avenger went from an ongoing to a mini and then about a week later, a ONE-SHOT! Fast forward to a couple weeks ago and TFA comes out and it's genius. The same caliber of fun and ingenuity and comics all-ages excitement that Thor had and again, COMPLETELY just well done.
It was bittersweet because I knew I wasn't going to get anymore. Until NOW dammit! So long story made long and now coming to a head, my pick this week is Captain America: The Fighting Avenger. Let's let this thing live on for at least one more week and pay our respects to comics being good comics.
HOT DAMN I love classic Americana!
