It's not so much the character, I think, but the incredible talent behind her.
How does she compare with the work Gaiman did on Sandman or Marvel Man? I nothing about the character and the visual just screams "90's Image excess".

How long did the first arc in All-New X-Men last? One I finish one of the novels I was reading I was thinking about getting the rest of the arc.

It didn't really feel like an arc coming to an end yet and they're 9 issues in...

Ah, I might just go by amount of money then. I'll probably cut off at $16 or $20, which would take me up issue 5 or 6 I believe.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

The opening arc in All Meh is six issues long, although really as Mr. Light states it feels like just one long ongoing story the way Bendis has designed it.

It just goes to show that you can't please everybody. All-New and Uncanny X-Men are currently the books that I anticipate more than any other, and it's been a loooooong time since I could say that about an X-book.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I've said this before, but I really don't like anything Bendis has done with All New X-Men or Uncanny X-Men which I dropped after the last issue. I'm glad others are enjoying them, but what he's done with them and his inability to write the characters... just lost me. I guess it's the same thing you have with Wolverine and the X-Men? I recall we had a disagreement about that book. I loved it and you didn't like it? I feel the same way on both Bendis titles. Kieron Gillen did far superior work with that team than Bendis is doing. I kind of wish he'd remain aboard.

Stuart Immonen is doing sensational art though for All New X-Men.

While Bendis certainly has his flaws, I really enjoyed his Avengers run, and I'm liking the X-Run so far as well but it's nothing hugely epic yet of course.

Same here. First time EVER an X-book has been on my pull list, though I've picked up issues off and on (mostly during the early Claremont days)

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Finished reading Nova #2 and I have to say that this is indeed some of Jeph Loeb's best work in...a very long time, I say that as someone who has disliked almost everything he has done since his Superman/Batman run. Maybe it's the Nova fan in me...but so far nothing has been irritating about this for me, and the art is simply fantastic.

I also really loved "Daredevil" and "Indestructible Hulk".

Yeah, WatXM just never did it for me and I agree about Gillen. If not Uncanny, then give him one of the other myriad X-books. Instead, they give him Iron Man, which has been my "meh" book, and am dropping after next issue (just because I hate dropping any book mid-arc).

Also agreed with you on Daredevil and Indestructible Hulk. I feel a crossover inthe works, as they are both written by Mark Waid and it seems to me that seeds have already been planted



I decided early on back in the day that I didn't care for the flavor of Image flavored Kool-Aid, so I had to Google this "Angela". I have to wonder on a story level how this will work. Will they reference, however vaguely or obliquely, her past history? Apparently, she has been killed off in the Spawn/Image-verse. Will they just drop her in as a new character? Or give her some sort of "trans-dimensional" origin? And what happens when Gaiman leaves Marvel? I'm sure he'll take Angela with him. It would be kind of cool to see this character sort of transend the boundaries of all of the different comic worlds.

That reminds me of what Englehart did with Mantis. He basically took her over to DC and did a story with her using a different name. Later he did the same at Eclipse, before bringing her back to Marvel.
