The only book I am getting this week is Matt Fraction and Ariel Olivetti's Punisher War Journal #3. I will review it in the comments later today.
No news on Newsarama caught my eye except for this imagination-deadening image on that someone found on Amazon.com solicits. The book is called Iron Man: Steve Rogers:
It's possible this in one of Marvel's misinformation things, to keep people from knowing how Civil War ends, and I hope so, but I fear not. I don't know how many points my imagination has but I permanently lost some from looking at that picture.
Also, Marvel put their solicits out last week, and I read on a message board people talking about the implications of the whole "Spiderman: Back in Black" thing (the solicits only hint at why he is back in black). They were discussing something I was taking for granted: Marvel is going to kill Mary Jane in Civil War 7 -- he will be in the black costume to mourn, and to tie in with Spiderman 3. (This marketing tie in would be in poor taste if Civil War was not also in poor taste). Joe Quesada has said Spiderman should never have gotten married, that it killed the romantic energy in the book (a fair complaint), and this is how he is going to fix it. I just assumed we were all on the same page about this, but then I realized maybe we weren't. Do we all think Civil War is a 100+ issue red-herring for the assassination of Mary Jane? That Peter revealed his secret identity in issue two and it gets someone he loves killed in issue seven? Or did I go off the rails somewhere, misdirected by Marvel or fandom? It's entirely possible that I went off the rails somewhere.
