Marvel's Big Shots: Hit or Miss?

As the summer comes closer new comic will launch and nothing springs to mind stronger than the Marvel's Big Shot concept. Taking second class characters and pairing them with top notch creative teams. Just by looking at some of the teams on some of these books make me a little nervous. So let's break the three books that will launch will all new number 1's this summer, shall we?

1. Daredevil by Mark Waid
I'm really stoked about this because it's Mark Waid returning to a mainstream Superhero book. I really wanted to see his return be with DC, but i'll take this. Waid has established himself and the quintessential Superhero writer and i think this will be the best of the three books that Marvel will publish this summer.

2.The Punisher by Greg Rucka
I have a good feeling about this too. Greg Rucka can write some amazing stories. His work on Queen and Country alone shows why this is the guy you want to write The Punisher. Also let be fair, i really don't think we've seen a really good body of Punisher stories since the Garth Ennis stuff. I don't think this will be heavy on blowing up and gunning down people. But i do think we will get some really good crime noir of out Rucka. Again only time will tell.

3. Moon Knight By Brian Bendis and Alex Maleev
Oh shit. Just to start of Bendis is NOT a bad writer. He's not. But when it comes down to it, i'm just not a fan of how he writes Superheroes. And knowing that Moon Knight will be taking on the persona of guys like Spider-Man and Wolverine is just an excuse for Bendis to write more crappy Spidey dialogue. I'm only gonna buy this because i have a soft spot in my heart for ol Moon Nut. Plus i'm pretty sure the art by Alex Meaeev will kick ass.
