Stupid Marvel
I need to buy fewer comics (for budget reasons), not more! Argleghagh!

I admit I ordered Patsy Walker, a.k.a. Hellcat because of Kate Leth. Which is funny, because I haven't even been reading her stuff for a couple of years. Maybe I only think I like Kate Leth because I've forgotten why I stopped following her blog. But I'd like to see a version of Patsy Walker that isn't grim and sad, after some of the crap her ex-husbands put her through. I liked her portrayal in Soule's She-Hulk.

I'm still buying Ms. Marvel. Takeshi Miyazawa doing some issues helps that decision.

I'm not sure I'll keep going with The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl. Maybe.

I'm on the fence about Captain Marvel's new series. No Kelly Sue and no David Lopez gives me pause. But I'm not following Lopez to Wolverine, so...we'll see.

I might buy Sam Wilson: Captain America, which impressed me more than I expected. A lot of that is the stylish art, but I like the characters (D-Man is back!) and themes in the first issue.

And maybe I'll buy whatever the Avengers series is called with Roberto DaCosta, mad scientists, and Squirrel Girl--but that's very dependent on the fun elements overwhelming the stock eeevil supervillainy.

I'm impressed that Marvel has this many books that seem like they're designed to appeal to me.
