    No it's not. Both Aero and Sword Master have lost their backups, and Amy Chu has replaced Greg Pak as translator.

    The backup storylines from the issue 6s fold into Atlantis Attacks.

    Fixed that. Also the only lineup I care about.

    Been rereading Jeff Parker's original run recently. Would recommend it even all these years later

    I miss Temugin. Also I like that Mr. Lao is getting so much focus as Jimmy's advisor

    I like that the new run is referencing Parker's second run by using the Dragon's Corridor and the transdimensional properties of dragon scales to build the portal city of Pan.

    Hey all. Just thought I'd give some quick comments on Sword Master #7. All in all, it continues the trend that we've been seeing for the past several issues, that Lin Lie is fairly inept when using his sword. The one time he tries to use his sword in combat and it gets stuck. I get the whole "new to being a hero" angle. I'm ok with it. But c'mon, when is he going to start to meaningfully use his sword? When are we going to see him chop up a demon? Much prefer his appearances in the main Agents of Atlas title.

    At the same time, there was action in the issue. Ji Shuangshuang was pretty cool.

    Anyone else know when the pace is going to pick up a little with this book?

    Yeah, I liked that too. It took a while to get an explanation regarding the appearance of dragons, but it makes sense. I'm interested in seeing how a dragon from Atlantis ended up in Pan to begin with.

    Hey all. Just read Aero #7. Though it was the 7th issue, really felt like a new start. There were some new plot lines picked up from the beginning of the series, and new ones started today. This Mr. Ke person seems like a new villain and the drama of Aero and her boyfriend seem to be picking up as well. And again the art, man, really great stuff. Aero is all about the air and for some reason the art feels fresh and good.

    Overall, a great story this week!

    Aero #7 is probably the most butchered issue yet. They just straight up cut out several pages of the fight and reposition the pages where she talks to Haung.

    It's basically not evem the same story any more, not that it really was to begin with.

    Wanted to share with posters some images of the upcoming Atlantis Attacks mini:





    Liking what I'm seeing here. The first image especially is pretty cool. Amadeus taking a shot from Namor sets up that underdog quality. Namor just beat up the physically strongest member of the Agents like that. So how do the rest of the Agents deal with that? Also, that image with Wave is great as well. Is she holding up the water? Maybe using a force field? Hmmm, have to wait and see.

    Issue comes out 1/22 folks. Looking forward to it!

    I like the panels Marvel chose to preview. Whether Wave did that unassisted or not, it's still impressive. And yes, it reminds me of how Sue Richards, possessing temporarily the Uni-Power as Captain Universe, blocked a mega-tsunami that blocked threatened San Francisco. And it looks like Namor wastes no more time in going after Nguyen.
