And that would be unnecessary name calling.

This is job related, which means you could could lose you job if you talk to much, even if they are not comping you, but I do hope they are "paying" you, which is none of my business.

My first retort was because I imagined, after checking your blog for your professional background, is that you received a random, uncalled for and unwarranted cease and desist THREAT from Marvel's legal department be it worded ever so charmingly.

People are fired every day because their facebook page reflects poorly on their employer.

Welcome to the 21st century.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

If it's Thursday and after 9PM PST/12AM EST, then it must be time for more Marvel previews...
Small week for me. Only Age of Ultron, All-New X-Men and Indestructible Hulk.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Guardians of the Galaxy #1 was excellent. Just when Bendis manages to irritate you with one book, he comes back right with another one that impresses you. As I mentioned a while ago, I had originally intended to not bother with this book when it was first announced, the prologue issue though really got my attention and this issue was just great. I was originally skeptical of Tony being on the team, but I can see this eventually working out. The McNiven artwork was great as well. Both this and Nova have surprised me big time so I'll continue following them.

As for next weeks pulls:

-Age of Ultron #4
-Deadpool #7
-Indestructible Hulk #6
-Superior Spider-Man #7
-Thanos Rising #1
-Ultimate Comics X-Men #25

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I enjoyed GotG #1 as well. I was going to pass, but with Gaiman coming in for the second arc, I figured "Why not?", and gave it a shot. I dropped Uncanny Avengers with the most recent issue, so it doesn't actually add any extra strain to my comics budget.

Uncanny Avengers was touted as a franchise bridging flagship book, but it comes off as a secondary book for both franchises.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I dropped "Uncanny Avengers" as well. I get what Remender was attempting to do with it, but the delays didn't help with its momentum and as Turtletrekker mentioned it was being touted as the flagship title of Marvel Now when it was first announced. It was decent, but the last couple of issues were sub par for Remender IMO. Perhaps I will revisit whenever that Red Skull Onslaught arc starts, but for now it's dropped.

I'm glad that it seems like Marvel Cosmic is back in a big way.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Uncanny is fluff. Whoever decided it was the flagship, made that decision before they read the first script for the first issue.

Oh, no, nothing like that. I have a good relationship with Marvel.

It's not exactly a secret who I work for and what I do. For these purposes, though, while I prefer to call myself a "comics journalist," I'm a marketing hack (meant that in a good way) and I write sales copy.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

OH! You're part of the problem.



I'm not sure I like the twist at the end of the new Age of Ultron.

The twist is either misleading, or the title of this event is wrong.

In the I Dream of Jeanie movie, Jeanie is talking about when her evil twin sister Jeanie was trying to decide about which half of her bikini she would wear on that particular day... But that she had finally decided to wear the left half.

(Above is code.)

I'll also add praise for GotG #1, after all the praise you guys gave for the .1 issue I was convinced to get it. I blame you all for this!!

I've also found the conclusion of Sif's first solo arc headlining Journey into Mystery with #650 to be good. I did feel it started a bit slow but the last few issues ended strong.


Next week for me its:
Indestructible Hulk #6
Red She-Hulk #64

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

In the wake of Age of Ultron... yet another Avengers book!

'Avengers A.I." will focus on Hank Pym, Vision, Victor Mancha from "Runaways" and others, including the first appearance of the 616's Monica Chang.

It alludes to a larger presense of A. I. on Earth post-AoU, perhaps hinting at that story's "unguessable ending"?

In other news, Daniel Way steps down from "Thunderbolts".

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I might check that out...and interesting that we are getting a 616 version of Monica Chang, she's one of my favourite Ultimate Universe characters. That doesn't surprise me about Daniel Way, I've been seriously debating about dropping Thunderbolts after defending the first issue or two earlier in the thread.

So, how many hours ago was it in Marvel time was it that all the rogue AI on 616 got together in the last volume of Secret Avengers and spent a year our time trying to stamp out humanity.

How can they have this book being put together in the periphery while simultaneously allowing the Human Torch to be murdered so that he can't make the new line up?

Written by Sam Humphries. Eugh.

So much for the stability of Marvel NOW. Alonso is eating his own words.
