Your Happenstance (Page, Cover) of the Day:

Thundra in action, from Quicksilver #2, "The Wrong Day to Start a New Life!" Written by Tom Peyer, layouts by Rob Haynes, pencils by Casey Jones, inks by Jason Martin. A nice page, although, I'm pretty sure Thundra was in one of the first Fantastic Four comics I ever read--one of the old Perez issues, maybe around FF# 184--I don't have more than a handful of issues with her. I think I may have the issue, and I'm going to guess again, West Coast Avengers #75 or so, probably written by Roy Thomas; that pairs Thundra up with Akron the Imperion. Yeah, the tool with the lightning bolt javelins. Man, Thundra could do better.

I had another writeup and pages from Quicksilver's short-lived solo series, but I guess I haven't posted it yet. Well, it'll turn up.

God, I thought this was the end of the month, but there's still a few days left. Swell. Even though I've been super busy, I did have time to re-read most of this:

Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Empyre, written by Will Murray. Cover by Joe Jusko. Huh, I knew Murray did a ton of Destroyer novels, but he also co-created Squirrel Girl with Steve Ditko! I have a ton of these Marvel novels from around 2000 or so, but haven't bought any recently, so if anyone has a newer one to recommend, let me know. Just based off the few I remember, the covers were better on the older ones...In the meantime, I'm going to finish this, and try to ride out the rest of this month. Wish me luck!

You can participate or not - no harm no foul either way.

I was tagged, and now, I'm passing the torch.
