This will, at least, be quick.

SHIELD #1

Will probably get the second issue of this, as I'm a sucker for Ms. Marvel, but I have to say, making this a Marvel version of Brave and the Bold with Coulson as the organizer is not really the take on a comics version of Agents of SHIELD I'd been hoping for. Still, reasonably promising, as first issues go.

Miracleman Annual #1

The Grant Morrison story is the disposable bit of Moore imitation you'd expect a 1984 Morrison blind submission to Warrior to be, and is of historical interest only. The Milligan/Allred story, on the other hand, is rather cute - a satisfying homage both to the barmy 1950s original adventures of Marvelman and to Moore's reinvention of the characters. On the whole, this is disposable, but it's also the most satisfying issue of Miracleman to date. 21 whole story pages for your $4.99, and frankly, reprinting Morrison's original script is worthwhile backmatter.

Watching "End of Time" on BBC America. Never before noticed the line "Do you think he changed them, in their graves?" Germ of "Death in Heaven"?

It's a wonderfully delivered line, and the horrified look on Tennant's face is perfect.

I'm not a fan of these two episodes at all, but everything between Cribbens and Tennant is incredible. I wish Wilf had been a companion throughout the season of Specials.

I have started this year from the SHIELD comics, well, i thought i will be worse, because during the last 2 years i have totally disappointed in MARVEL, i didn't have a clue what they are doing with their anniversary. When the friend of mine helped me do my essay we started watching agents of shield, just "whaaaat?"
