    No. I'm NEVER going to forget the load of crap Aaron heaped on Namor fans, trying to shore up Marvel's Tarzan as better than everyone in Atlantis, UNDERWATER in their own city.


    On a less salty and more appreciative note ... Another packed issue, with so much to think about. Still loving the Guice flashbacks, and boy, Magno can draw a battle scene!
    Oh I'm never forgetting what a load of bull that Ka-Zar thing was. Magno's scenes are electrifying and there is just alot going on but yeah Steve and Bucky are spoilers:
    going under the change to be atlanteans, machan stole the serpent crown and took over Roman's mind, and at least chip says that Namor's strong will is what kept Machan/tommy in check all these years and never able to fully take over namor's mind. (i dont think everything is rectonned, but more like namor just has been dealing with this invisble force in his head for years)
    end of spoilers

    Hey. So I wasn't following Invaders but got today's issue...

    I may be off my head here, but is Zdarsky writing Namor as gay? The way the death of his war buddy crushed him and his moving in with that Peterson seemed a little HUH? to me
    Kind of hoping to see Madame Frost, Ambassador of Krakoa, humiliating Mr. President of Brazil during a UN meeting

    I'm guessing Hickman kept his X-Stuff a surprise from everyone considering a good chunk of this run is essentially "Xavier is an asshole (again), messes around with peoples minds without their permission (again) and fucks up making things worse (again) and is now dead so he cant help us"

    When infact he's a-ok and they even mention Krakoa on panel so cant go "It takes place before Hickmans run"

    No, he isn't. BP gets a cameo.

    I agree, Ptrvc.

    But ... the answer to the question is ... complicated.

    Also, if Zdarsky is anything like his characters, he's a hugger.

    Namor fighting off the crown/Marchan's influence could explain almost everything about Namor in the 'modern' era. His attraction to women that he shouldn't be, but a lot of stuff.

    Can't help but think that a lot of readers, after reading the end of this weeks issue, are wondering where the heck Ka-Zar is in all this.

    Good issue. I noticed there was a House of X reference. Hopefully he's coordinating with Hickman to make sure the reference won't feel oddly out of place when the series ends.

    Hmmm. I don't think so.

    Of course, Anne Raymond is going to be like Betty Dean, a victim of the sliding timeline.

    August sales figures are out. 14,248. So it looks like Invaders has indeed leveled out around 14.5K +/-. Which puts it above several other books at the same issue number. It is not as high as I wish, but it is much better than others. Keeping my fingers crossed for a third arc!
