Talk is cheap. And in Civil War II #7, nothing happens but talk, and it’s not cheap. For five dollars American I got pretty pictures, a lot of talk, hardly any plot progression, and nothing happens. In a comic that includes entire pages taken up by credits, alternate covers, a next issue tease, and a minimalist roll call, that is awful. When it’s taken into account how late this event series is, it is simply an awful shame. But then again, what does or doesn’t happen in this issue may be a matter of perspective, and we may just have seen the death of another major Marvel superhero. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on what does happen in Civil War II #7…
It was a huge weekend at the box office, thanks to the solid offering of critically acclaimed films in theaters. Only one could hit the top of the box office, though, and it managed to rock all the other films. Here’s what went down:
Moana was the big hit at the Thanksgiving box office this weekend, bringing in a simply outstanding $54.7 million over the three day weekend, with potentially more to come once the actually arrive. No doubt The Rock’s star power and social media presence helped send this Disney film skyrocketing. It should also have a nice run leading up to the arrival of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on December 16th.
