To them, this may be "it", but to me, it ain't

Newsarama posts by far one of the most violent coverscans I've ever seen from Marvel, for New Avengers #31, which appears to be an "homage" to when Elektra was originally killed off in Daredevil #181 in 1983.
According to a source from Marvel, this will mostly likely be the next big "it" book, as what happens on the cover is only the start of the story, and doesn't involve Elektra's resurrection a handful of issues later.
I hate to say, but somehow, I doubt this'll be "it", seeing as I'm already disillusioned with Brian Michael Bendis for at least three years now.

And this solicitation sure is going a bit far:
No hype! No BS! The most important last page of any Marvel comic this year! Do not miss it!
Wow, that's certainly an attention grabber, using even initials for profanity to raise people's eyebrows.

The verdict: No sale.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
