    I sort of wonder if launching 2 new teams at once is a bad idea. AoW might end up stealing Strike Forces thunder, or vice versa.

    I'm just going to leave this here, this is why "flooding the market" is bad for readers. I'm already turning down even checking out so many books in the next few months that this stuff is already lost in the noise.

    I think Black Panther and closer ties to the main Avengers book makes AoW an easier sell then Strike Force even if it's also a roster of characters who probably couldn't hold a solo book.

    Given a choice, I'd have Monica on a different team. But since she isn't, sure, let them churn out as many books as necessary as long as Monica appears in a title somewhere. I really wish they'd just give Monica her own title, even if it runs for no more than a year.

    They've always given us choices. But they've rarely ever given us good choices.
    These two books each have their specific fan demographic so some "sales splitting" will happen.
    I'm buying both...and the proof will be if I continue beyond the first three issues.

    I'm really not interested in Agents of Wakanda (honestly, it's Gorilla Man. I just do not like the intelligent primate character archetype. It's a thing for me).

    The concept for this book isn't really fascinating to me, but, I like more of the characters on Strikeforce.

    Yeah, AoW is doing a better job of following the standard playbook as far as launching a new unproven franchise. Stick an established A list character, and launch it out of an already established franchise. If it can maintain strong ties to Aarons Avengers book (and it should since they are used pretty heavily), I suspect it will at least last until Aarons Avenger run ends.

    Strike Force conversely is starting off completely cold, in that there are no A list characters and no book lauching it. I wonder if they shouldn't at least have launched it out of some sort of event to give it more of a fighting chance. Maybe have it come out of War of Realms or something. Or maybe it will end up coming out of War of REalms and we just havent' seen that connection yet.

    From everything I've seen, most people assume it's coming out of war of the Realms since a lot of the time ins have Strikeforce in their name?

    Also, what do you all think of Tini Howard's Strikeforce playlist?

    I haven't listened to it yet, but looking at it, its a lot of music I've never heard or heard of. I can pick up a vibe based on the song titles though. Matches the vibes of the cover.

    this looks sick





    does anyone know why Jessica went back to the classic costume
    The J-man

    I post via my phone a lot, therefore I make the occasional grammatical error. Not an excuse just forewarning you. Feel free to call me out I won't mind.

    There hasn't really been any suggestion that there's a story reason for it. I think the writer and/or editor just missed it. Though if you want a story reason, her new costume was supposed to fit her career as a detective, and she isn't playing that role in this book.

    A LOT of the time I think characters eventually go back to classic costumes by default. Sometimes there's a reason, but a lot of the time it's simply what a lot of artists and writers grew up with.

    Tini Howard stated on Twitter that she prefers the old costume and wanted to use it. Jess still has the jacket though.

    And they had brought out the classic outfit for Secret Wars so we know she still had it around.

    I'm so excited for this book.
