Some thoughts on last week's comics...

New Avengers #50: Brian Michael Bendis ranks up there with Joss Whedon and Warren Ellis when it comes to writing clever dialogue. This issue is no exception.

Runaways #7: Takeshi Miyazawa's manga-influenced art is a sight for sore eyes after the previous six issues featured the hideous, cartoonish art of Humberto Ramos. I am so not a Ramos fan. Miyazawa, however, is perfect for these characters, and this is his third time working on them.

Angel #18: Angel the television show ended perfectly. After reading eight issues of Angel the comic book, I'm still not convinced it was necessary to continue the story in comic book form.

Wonder Woman #29: I'm a big fan of writer Gail Simone, but this story arc just isn't working for me.

Doctor Who: The Whispering Gallery: Good as a one shot story. The premise is a little slight, but at least it isn't stretched out longer than necessary. I love Ben Templesmith's art.

Marvels: Eye of the Camera #4: Alex Ross provided the art for the original Marvels in 1994. Ross isn't involved with this follow-up, but Jay Anacleto's lovely art is a fine substitute.
