Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I think the new Spidey book will have a different name to reflect the Marvel Now era. It may even be adjectiveless again (it's been a few years since the last one, IIRC), so I could see them bringing it back with a new #1...

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

There have been rumours that the long delayed J. Scott Campbell and Jeph Loeb Spider-Man project would be a relaunched "Spider-Man", but that's just been fan speculation.

Greg Ruka speaks out against the two companies. Looks like he might be done, at least for a while regarding mainstream comics.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

As much as I'm enjoying some of what DC is doing, I'm not surprised (but I am alarmed) that some of the best writers are being sidelined creatively. Gotham Central was amazing, and like Secret Six, I don't know that DC is doing anything half as good right now. Wonder Woman and Action, maybe, and Demon Knights comes close. But All-Star Western is starting to circle itself, and Swamp Thing/Animal Man shot their load pretty early on.

I did think it was odd to put the Punisher on a team book ...

This pretty much summarizes my thoughts on the Big 2's issue numbering schemes:


As for Marvel Now...I want to believe! But i know better.

I don't really see the point of renumbering unless you actually start the continuity over. I know they do it as a way to attract new readers, but I really think if people are interested enough in the comics to read them, they'll probably read them whether it's number 1 or 701. But I guess that could just be me.
Personally, I've pretty much given up on these comics. You are bombarded with series after series, with crossovers, and the same characters in multiple series (which sometimes reference each other)... it's just frustrating for the reader and too damn expensive to stay on top of it all.
Couldn't they limit themselves to one series/issue per week with more pages per issue (quality instead of quantity)?
There are 15 NOW-issues in for 10 series due out in November. That's overkill.

You are talking like a junkie thinking he's getting a raw deal from his dealer.

I'm not sure why I used a simile there?

Yay! It is confirmed that Kieron Gillen will continue to write little Loki's adventures post-JiM.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Next week's previews, courtesy of CBR...

Click the links below to be taken to the preview of your choice.
A lot of releases this week, but I'm only getting five of them. Wow, my pull-list is soon to be changing dramtically.

Captain Marvel 4 (Dropping after the first arc)
FF 22 (Probably dropping after next issue. Still undecided on Fraction's take. Will be buying his Fantastic Four)
Hit-Girl 3 (only two issues left)
Journey into Mystery 644 (Dropping after next issue)
Winter Soldier 11 (Dropping after #15)

ETA-- Love the cover to ASM 694. An homage to the first Marvel/DC crossover that teamed-up Spider-Man and Superman.

Picking up:
Wolverine & The X-Men
X-Men Legacy

I'm actually going to miss this incarnation of X-Men Legacy. I think I like Rogue a lot more than most people.

Are things getting worse at the companies or is it just that people who have been at it for a while are getting tired of them? I'm kind of confused by all of these writers suddenly quitting. Honestly most what I'm hearing them complain about seems like your normal corporate crap that you run into with any big company. Not that that makes it right.

This is interesting...looks like we're going to be re-introduced to Logan's brother Dog, whom we've not seen since Origin.

It's just usual corporate crap. DC under Levitz and Didio has been plagued by internal politics and editorial battles. In the case of Rucka, it was the straw that broke the camel's back. Liefeld doesn't really matter, he is an asshole.

Yeah, I read enough of Liefeld's stuff when he threw his little temper tantrum to know to just ignore him. Is he at least a good enough comic writer to make up for his bad personality?
