So yeah, overall damn good stack of reading material right?
The only regret I have is buying the Avengers: X-Sanction issues, because quite frankly they sucked. Hard.
Should've known it'd be bad since Jeph Loeb wrote it(his recent stuff stinks horribly) but gave it a try since Ed McGuinness drew it. Yeah, bad. Just bad. And basically the last issue makes the purpose of the story moot, meaning the whole thing meant absolutely nothing.
Fuck you Jeph Loeb! You Fucking Hack!
Stick to being the "story consultant" on Marvel tv/movie prjects, because you're clearly burned out as a writer these days.
Anyhoo, skit time kiddies!
Looks like Spidey did it again. Last time he mistook the Sportsmaster for Jason Voorhees. Now Alpha Flight's Sasquatch for Bigfoot? Methinks maybe that fresh air isn't as good for Spidey as he thought.
BTW, I picked up ol' Sasquatch for a mere buck two weeks ago at a local thrift store. He was in a big of misc. toys. Now that my friends, is what you call a find.
