I took a picture of that same panel and sent it to loads of my friends!
Also, Doreens dating montage was fucking classic!

The time travel story with Dr Doom was unbelievably fantastic.

The whole goddamn thing.
Gwenpool may actually be better though.

Gwen- And then I blew up the snake man! And I got so much money for it!
Khamala - I dont think thats...cool?
Gwen- He was a real bad dude and I stopped him. Very heroically. It was hard but it was the right thing to do!

Then they go do karaoke together.

Well the comic is only on issue 3.
But my greatest wish is Squirrel Girl and Gwen in their own netflix series!

Oh btw, I thought it was a tad gimmicky when Falcon took over as Captain America, but they have done some great stuff with that idea! Its making a meta commentary about the value of black role models and Sam having to accept that regardless of how apolitical he views himself in the role, his existance as a person of colour and symbol of america causes ripples. Its worth picking up the latest issue I think.

Okay several people here squealed about Saga.  They were right.  Read the first 3 books so far and it's great.

I really need to try that book again.

If you fancy something different, try Southern Bastards.
It kind of invokes Walking Tall but has a mean twist. Its a story about the irrational passion in a small town for highschool football and how a coach came to basically run the town.

I'm partway through the 2nd TPB for "Faster Than Light" from Image. A very good SF story. I'm really enjoying it. I've never tried to use the digital AR in comics before but it is really effective here.

I caught up through Book 6 just last night. I usually order stuff online, but I made it a point to buy these at a local comic shop just because I love this so much, I want everybody involved to get their monetary due.

I'm so thoroughly pulled into these characters and their stories, and it's been so good, I'm not worried at all about being disappointed... just excited to read what comes next.
