Yeah, I hearts the shit out of Walter Simonson. I have met and held intelligent conversations with tons of famous comicbook artists, but when I met Walt Simonson I was reduced to a blushing giggly mess. His work on Thor, X-Factor and Fantastic Four are unparalleled as far as I'm concerned.
I haven't read too much of his new stuff, but most of what I'd seen was not as good as I wanted it to be. This preview looks pretty dope, though. I have to assume this is fill-in work. I mean, the suits at Marvel CAN'T miss me so much as a customer that they would put Simonson on Avengers full-time to lure me back?
Nah... that's crazy talk! So I will probably cop Avengers #28 (which comes out July 25th) the next time I go to the comic shop.
