In any case, can't say the issue really appealed to me too much storywise, in the sense that this main story doesn't much appeal to me at this point (with the proviso made last month that I suspect it may re-read very well in TBF format), and we barely got a glimpse of what is going on with the other story threads.
The backup story is nice, but the art didn't do it for me online (Bucky's art does shine through online, though I suspect the inking will be better in print format). But again, I reserve judgement until I re-read it all.
I enjoy the Comixology app and reading comics on it but it's a different feel for sure. I love my iPad though, and I'm using it for 95+% of my book reading now as well.
I have to agree with you that I think this is a story that will read better in the TBF, especially since I reread 116 right before I read 117 and I think rereading all the issues would have helped it work better.
So What do you think - will Dare Fly? I doubt he's going to end up dead, but I'm thinking he won't be saved by flying.
