A week full of final issues.
Journey into Mystery
645 was a heart-breaking end to little Loki's journey as he confronts his evil self and comes out... victorious? The way JiM ends makes me very curious as to how the character will be used in Young Avengers
23-- The final end to Johnathon Hickman's epic run. Easily right up there with the Lee/Kirby and Byrne runs it will be best remembered for re-energizing the FF by re-discovering it's heart and soul with the classic family dynamic. Truly, as Hickman said in his farewell, deserving once more of the title "World's Greatest Comic Magazine".
Hickman will indeed be missed, but while I'm not getting Fraction's FF, I will be buying the "main" book. The Fantastic Four has always been my favorite Marvel team, and I am happy to give the new writer and direction a fair shot.
19-- The end of Ed Brubaker's run. Wow. Was it really over 100 issues? A done-in-one that re-affirms Cap's dedication to his mission and the symbol of Captain America while he visits the Cap from the 50s in the hospital. A strong finish to a run that was mostly good, even epic at times, but has been slowly running out of steam for some time.
32-- Still two more issues till this one ends. Yay! I really, really missed the Wasp and was grinning ear-to-ear at her reunion with her team-mates. Appropriately, the team rescuing her are essentially the the team she started with-- Iron Man, Thor, Pym and Cap, giving us a reunion of the original team sans
Hulk for the final arc. Amusingly, Jan didn't even question Cap's being alive considering he was dead when she "died".
