Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Steve looks like an older Dave from Kick-Ass and the kid "Ian" looks like Mindy!! His art in "Avengers" was horrid...he actually managed to make Spider-Woman look ugly! His "Kick-Ass" art though is awesome. I don't understand the contrast lol. I'm digging the story in "Captain America" though.

Looks like we get Mr. Strickland from Back to the Future in the new Nova book. Art is not exactly looking great, very Saturday morning cartoon. Hopefully the story will hold my interest.

Don't expect much story from a Jeph Loeb book. The man really hasn't written anything good for along time.

In marvel books he doesn't get to say who his inker(s) are. They can saddle him with some real turds, and you can't be an asshole and tell some one they suck, becuase then they'll never leave while they stop "trying", so then your work gets even worse.

John Byrne went a special kind of insane while doing Namor in the early nineties. He wrote, pencilled, inked, coloured and LETTERED the book for several months.

And it came out on time. And I'm pretty sure he would have been doing at least one other book at the same time.

So many of the kids today can't even pencil 20 pages a month for more than 3 months before they fall behind.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

And lets just be clear about this, the lettering... It was this weird Gothic font that was just amazing and really leant to the mythos that you reading stories about the absolute monarch of 8/10ths of the world.

Usually letterers aren't allowed to go off the reservation like that, but he was John Freaking Byrne.

I wonder whatever happened to Tom Orzechowski. He was always going off the reservation. What an amazing calligrapher he was.

^Google and Wikipedia are your friends. Through Orzechowski's wiki page, I found the link to his logo and graphic design business in Portland, OR.

I loved John Workman Jr. Especially when he was teamed with Walter Simonson.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I picked up Young Avengers #1. I tried to pretend it was Phonogram -- but I didn't quite succeed.

There are some interesting visual things (a sequence with Kate Bishop and some Skrulls has a Frank Quitely layout) and it's a pretty book (which you would expect with McKelvie). And while there's character on every page, there's not a lot of story here. I have no idea who these characters are, and I have no idea why I should care about them. Maybe if someone had talked about Kenickie then I'd have understood. No, I guess these characters would have been infacts in Kenickie's heyday, so they should have had conversations about Snow Patrol and "Chasing Cars" instead. Then I'd have gotten it.

I don't know who the person at the end is supposed to be -- or even any of the backstory leading to that.

Still. It's a pretty book.

Needs more Kenickie.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

The Skrull who pretended to be Hulkings mother while he was growing up on Earth who was really his bodyguard, who it seems has super Skrull powers, which seems unlikely or was more than the Skrull she appeared to be years earlier... Or since she was collected from an alternate timeline, it's possible that this was a completely different bodyguard who was assigned to wear the same face and look after Mar'Vell's kid.

YA was probably the most disappointing comic this week.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I liked the bit with kate at the beginning, until her beau was revealed... But ain't they hinting at an April September Romance between her and Hawkeye in Hawkeye... I mean they're protesting too much that they're not a couple, and they have these moments where... But Wiccan's 180 degree spin from


His mothers son.

Oh yeah, Uncanny Avengers. I had forgotten this book existed. It was a decent action book. Wolverine slicing off Red Skull's hand and then getting Thor'd was pretty cool.
