With Noto now on the art, Dillion stepped down at #6, with issue #7 that alone caused me to do a double take on the stand this week. With Way's erratic pacing now gone I may have to reconsider this book a few issues from now.

So much for the stability of Marvel NOW. Alonso is eating his own words.
In Way's own words...


  • Issue #11 will be -- for the foreseeable future, at least -- my final issue of the series. As often happens in this business, another project that I'd been shepherding along for several years finally lined up and, knowing that a second opportunity may never come along, I made the tough decision to step away from "Thunderbolts" in order to pursue it.

"Nova" is getting a new creative team as well, Zeb Wells and Paco Medina will be taking over from Loeb/McGuiness.

As for Nova, in Alex Alonso's words...
  • Believe me, If Jeph could've stayed he would've. But it quickly became clear that writing a monthly -- even one that he loved this much -- wasn't possible. Remember, Jeph is deeply invested in this character -- he and [artist] Ed McGuinness created Sam Alexander, his backstory, everything -- so walking away from “Nova” isn't easy. Which is why he channeled his energy into bugging Steve to get "someone like Zeb Wells" to write the series after he left.
Sounds like business as usual to me. People leave writing assignments all of the time without it being anything like the editorial interference clusterfuck currently going on over at DC. To compare it as such seems a little facetious to me.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Yeah it doesn't sound like the same thing going on over at DC right now...but it is interesting to keep note of. I am a little surprised that the "Nova" team is changing hands, since I don't think it was intended to be a rotating creative team at first.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Well I suppose I'd rather see them know when it step away if they can't do it than do it and it be shite.

It doesn't bother me to see creative teams change - even so soon. It's always rare when the same team sticks around for a while anyway.

This.

Plus there are SO many factors out there that contribute to people leaving, it's a little unfair to put the blame on the company.

"What? Writer A left the book because his wife died and he needs to be away for a little while? Marvel promised no changes!!"

Now obviously this didn't happen, but come on, this is life.

Loeb and Way leaving is WAY different than what's going on over at DC. Especially for Loeb, who's not exactly going far from Marvel.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

A regular human being = 6 months is a long time and an extreme commitment to job that really doesn't pay that well or make a dent in my mortgage.

Bendis had a nice try, but we're not going to get another run like Claremont had on Uncanny in the 70s, 80s and 90s with how the industry works these days.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

So you're 638 years in the past when you are told about an Ultron Apocalypse where it is requested that you fan the piddling reminiscent of burnished humanity and peace keep the cursed Ear... For god sake Reed! Causality be damned! You're in a Time machine! USE IT! Why not arrive home a year early and prepare for the Apocalypse? Forewarned is forearmed! Or even go 6 months into the future to see how you saved the world?! But no you and yourself in the middle of an unfolding disaster, and now your children are orphans.

UM?

Weren't they supposed to be spending a year in the Negative Zone? And if T'Challa can ring then up "whenever" on his timeywhimy cellphone... How is that "fake" old Johnny persisting in his cunning ruse that the Fantastic Four had been murdered decades earlier by baddies as yet unnamed...

**Sigh**

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Also keep in mind while Clairmont had a long run - not everything was pure gold - I mean hell I write fan fic/rpg stuff and I know there's stuff I've done that sucks but I go 'meh on to the next story'.

I'd rather see a book come out on time than be delayed for months or even years (here's looking at YOU Kevin Smith's Spider-Man: Evil that Men Do)

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Uncanny Avengers got me this week.

Classic love triangles.

New love triangles.

Cap touched Wanda's face like she he was going to kiss her and the the scene cut away.

Before House of M, they were friends with benefits.

Alex is following Janet's ridiculous advice like a puppy.

Isn't he still married to Polaris and Wanda is his sisterinlaw who should be keeping tabs on these things?

Even if Lorna's not on the team, they should be be sharing a bed, in either of their houses, in the city a couple times a week. Not for sex, it just feels wrong to curl up with a pillow when there's a flesh and blood person a 20 minute cab ride away who can be a much better substitute and heated at that.

Sunfire is the first soldier on the team that makes sense.

Too many generals.

I loves me a really good Kang story.

That was established as being more reality manipulation from the mentally unstable Wanda from Disassembled.

Have Wanda and Lorna ever really bonded as sisters?

Those two?

No.

But she did play the sisterinlaw card with Crystal during all that War of Kings stuff a few years back which is when I was stumbling because I wasn't aware when they ret-ret-coned that she was Magneto's daughter again.

Of course now that Crystal is married to Ronan?

All the Inhuman Kings were equally married to Sue Storm a couple years ago, which would suggest that they're into polygamy, and if they weren't into polygamy before that moment, Blackbolt is an absolute Monarch and law skips along behind his whimsy.

When a woman has more than one husband it's called polyandry.
