Marvel April solicits are out. My feelings:
* Gosh, I hate that cover art on X-Men. HATE. Jubilee's so shiny, her limbs are weirdly elongated, she has exactly the same body as every other Dodson cover woman ever (except for being slightly less busty than some, so we should give thanks for small favors), and there's no background. Ugh. Dodsons, Dodsons, go away.

* Speaking of art, we're onto yet another new artist for that title, Clay Mann this time. I wonder if the plan was originally to rotate in a new artist every three issues, or if Marvel has decided to turn a bug into a feature, or what. Mann will be the fifth artist in 13 issues.

* However, I am pleased that we're getting more story about Shogo's backstory.

* I don't know Moon Knight from a hole in the ground, but the covers, the interiors I've seen, and the silly overhype ("The best new comic of 2014," what) reeeally make me want to pick it up. And it's Warren Ellis, whom I frequently like quite a lot.

* ELEKTRA. Finally solicited, yay. Cannot wait to get my hands on that one. Cannot wait to just see some del Mundo interiors on that one.

* So you all know Nightcrawler has a new ongoing, yes? Written by Claremont, no less. I doubt I'll care much, but, you know, Nightcrawler.

* Gosh, the X-Force art is SO UGLY. If the writing turns out to be good, then fingers crossed that we'll switch artists out pretty fast.

* Aaand we're back to Greg Land on Mighty Avengers. Sigh.

* More Annie Wu (and therefore Kate) on Hawkeye. I haven't been excited about how Fraction's written Kate lately, but the fact that she's sharing the title with Clint these days still makes me happy, and I like Wu's work quite a lot.

In other news, I just realized that the Captain America and Black Widow series I was enthusing about the other day does not have its last two issue on MU, despite originally being released over a year ago. (Usually things go up on MU after six months.) I had already decided I needed a trade, but perhaps I will be getting it sooner rather than later. Grr.

I had the same problem with Captain America and Black Widow! Luckily I think my library system has a copy of the trade.

Oh man, the She-Hulk solicit looks amazing. Jennifer and Matt should be really fun to see together, and the Kevin Wada cover is gorgeous.

I love the Kevin Wada covers. I'm reserving judgment about the comic, though, because I've been generally unhappy with Javier Pulido in the past, and what I've seen of the interiors on this one are not enthusing me. Jen+Matt does sound great, though.

Yeah, I'm not sure about the interior previews either. Some of them look good and some look weirdly stick-person-esque.
