  This is the first appearance of David Letterman as a character in a comic.

  Much better than Saturday Night Live's appearance.

  -I really hope this was the last AEM issue in The Order.
-@JohnnyD: I preferred the SNL issue...Dave with the doorknob smacked of Howard.

  Must be a shift in the order since that comment. There are several more AEM to come

  Not so bad as I expected, and it is nice to see some of the B-listers now and again.

  You know, if they had left the Widow and the Panther out of that, I might have given it two stars. But seriously, the Black Panther on Letterman?

  Letterman was pretty cool under fire here, haha

  With Walt Simonson's Thor starting next in line in The Order, this is just tedious...

  This was great until I saw that Stankowicz has at least 1 more appearance :(

  I love this look for Nat, and the fact that she has the long wig on hand.

  So, is Clint's hearing loss permanent? If so, that's actually really cool from the storytelling perspective.
