Without a plan, it turns out, a lot of decisions are really hard. Eliot might actually hate his shrink. Yes, Eliot is getting healthier or whatever, but at what cost? He used to be a mess of scar tissue and substance abuse, but he could get dressed in the morning without an existential crisis.

askye, the Matt Fraction run on Hawkeye? SO GOOD. And I love Kate Bishop so much. I can’t wait until the Hawkeye show on Disney+.

Yep it is the Fraction run. I kept seeing that tag and I liked the Clint characterizations better so I finally gave the comics a shot. Also the references to the tracksuit Draculas and I wanted to check that out. The stories I read weren't overusing the word bro, bro...

Kate is awesome. Reading this definitely makes me more excited about the upcoming series.

Oh yeah. Kate Bishop is blessed to have been written well by almost everyone who's had a book starring her. (The Kelly Thompson series was a bit too wacky sitcom-ish for me, but it didn't seem badly written.)

Like a pinch on the neck from Mr Spock

When these started showing up on Tumblr, I thought it just fan art, but no, it’s an officially licensed by DC thing.

Those are cute!

The Young Avengers I have on hold is finally ready to pick up. I got excited when I read that at work and was like "i'll get it on my way home". Except the library closed before I got off so now I have to wait until tomorrow.

I also looked through the trade paperbacks they had and I thought I picked up the start of the Spider-Gwen ones but I didn't so I have to take that back and find the right one. I also requested The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl.

I'd like to read some Spiderman but I have no idea where to start there.

GS: If you had to choose between kicking evil in the head or the behind, which would you choose, and why? Minsc: I'm not sure I understand the question. I have two feet, do I not? You do not take a small plate when the feast of evil welcomes seconds.

I don't know where a good place to start with classic Spider-Man would be, but Bendis' run on Ultimate Spider-Man is really solid, at least the first few years. (I eventually got burned out on them when it started getting side-tracked by big crossover events and such.) My only real complaint about them is I don't care for their take on the Green Goblin.
