    Marvel finding a new way to piss people off. Instead of including a digital code with purchase they're going to be bonus comics to promote other things, so next month it'll be Wolverine #66 (Old Man Logan), Civil War II #0 and Captain Marvel #1 to promote the trades coming out.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say this the biggest comic news in almost 10 years, concerning the big 2, at least for me.

    yeah. very happy to see it. The concept sounds great. He's even incorporating the Wildcats v2 and 3 stuff. Although still a reboot. not a sequal.

    6page promo.




    Wildstorm was my main reading when I first started comics. Dangergirl, Wildcats, The Authorarity, Planetary, etc.

    I've been using that for years. The best part is that viewing it isn't illegal, while downloading is.

    Also, that site opens easily with an ipad, no cumbersome downloading and transferring of files needed.

    Jesus Christ, another example of stunningly terrible artwork as well. Thor is fat as fuck, and my Beloved Beta Ray Bill...I can't even. Does he not have a waist?

    The only good thing about IvX is the trajectory it set the teams on... the ending was as ridiculous as anything Marvel has done probably ever... with 'why didn't they just tell us !?' ... just wow. Apparently the new Inhumans is finally not trying to be a fake X-Book and is OK. X-Men Prime is just setup, so hard to say how those will go still.

    i can't even read Korean Hulk, it's so cringe.

    AND it's written by and drawn by Koreans, so it's not like they don't have source material

    But, it's so cringe.

    I would have given up thorita too if dauterman didn't draw so damn good.

    but ghetto fabulous iron woman is horrible, all black superheroes are, they just can't write good black superheroes, (nor asian for that matter)

    Change is fine. Diversity is fine. It's going overboard and doing both at the same time that caused the issue. There are fans of these characters out there, and when you diversity and end a character people have loved for decades, they're going to be grumpy. On the flip side, if Sally Jo Woman bitches online because there aren't enough female heroes, but then never buys a comic when they create one just for her, what was solved?

    Just do solid stories with good writing and artwork and you'll be fine.

    It's slow, even the first 2 issues, not boring slow, but it gives me hope that Ellis is World Building again.
