Oh, wow. I'm out. So, Simon Oliver's run is going to go downhill as a colossal failure, I'd have to say....12 issues of searching for the Djinn. I'm guessing Oliver's run will end with, "I found them!".

Nothing against Tim Seeley, but I've just never read anything by him that I've found in any way exceptional. Oliver had the peak-of-his-career Last Gang in Town right before he took over on Hellblazer, and he churned out the most boring run on the book I can think of....probably even worse, in some ways, than the Ming Doyle misfire (although, in other ways, Doyle's was just terrible even compared to Oliver's).

Wasn't Seeley a member of this forum at one point?

"I finally did it! I finally found the Djinn!"

Those are some terrifying demons he's going up against there.

I'm not sure about that, things are getting pretty bad. The American/Hydra military just bombed Las Vegas off the map, because a superhero resistance group was hiding in the city.

Steve Rogers shows up in a forest, saying he "just wants to go home". Steve Rogers is supposed to be the ruler of the Hydra American Empire, as Captain America.
I hope it doesn't end up as "Captain America is too good and perfect to be corrupted by the Cosmic Cube. Kobik had to split Steve Rogers in to two people to fulfill Red Skull's wish. He teleported the real Steve Rogers to some out of the way place, without his memory, and created a clone version of Steve Rogers that he could indoctrinate in to being a Hydra member". That way, it would help allay all the people who are upset that good, upstanding Steve Rogers is a fascist. That would be lame.

Secret Empire is continuing to be worth reading, I'd say. It's quite dark. You can't help but feel that this is an alternate universe though. It's hard to believe this is meant to be the actual Marvel Universe. The entire time I'm reading an issue, I keep being reminded me of Millar's Old Man Logan. The fact that everything is just going to be reset at the end certainly helps add to this feeling.
