Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Yeah I was disappointed with it this year too...especially from DC, but I enjoyed the Infinity "preview" I'm very much looking forward to it.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Just finished Infinity. I see what you meant by short. I wasn't in the mood for the Drax Story. That's not my Drax. I do like the new Drax (Cammy!), but really my Drax is the brain damaged one... Look at the date: It's 2013. I'm reading the Ellis exert of his Avenger GN at the back of Infinity and I'm thinking that isn't it conceivable that by 2013 that Captain America was recovered from the ice floats post 911? By any definition of the truth, that means that he would have woken up in a bad future and taken the first time machine available back in time to fix EVERYTHING.

OMG... Hulk Agents of SMASH just used animation cells from the cartoon... Or they were going for a very weird effect... But it was awful or great for a 6 year old.

There were no free issues from any of the big publishers on Comixology for FBCD, which really surprised me, because I swore there were the last few years.

There are some. You just have to poke around.

This is how I found them on my iPad: From the store I hit the "more" button (top left). This brings up various quick links in the store. Select "Free comics." From here just scroll down and you'll see a Free Comic Book Day category. There are currently 14 books to download.

I recommend Molly Danger by Jamal Igle. Top notch all-ages super-heroing featuring a young female protagonist.

Edited to add: Just noticed you said from the "big" publishers. IIRC last year the DC FCBD book was added a week or so later. So I would guess it's just a matter of waiting.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I admit I no longer go to FCBD for the free comics as issued with the FCBD banner.
I go for the sales. I got a good run of fine to near mint issues of Byrne's '90s Namor 1-48, bagged. The entire run of Sleepwaker 1-33. For $.50 it's worth rereading those imo.
Various other misc books.
Plus for every $10 you spend you got a ticket that could be redeemed for various HC/OHC/Omnis.
I already had the Omnis he was offering but got the Seige OHC and Dark Avengers OHC.

He also gives away surplus "recent" books. I'm guessing he has surplus cause he bought them in 'x' quantity to get some variant. This year I got the Marvel Now #1 issues of Cable&X-Force, Nova, Captain America and New Avengers which I've not yet read. He also had Secret Avengers, Savage Wolverine and Thunderbolts #1, but I bought those upon release.

If you want to look him up on FB it's Rick's Comic City, he has pictures from the days event. People dressing up, it's very much a micro-con atmosphere in a way. At least how he promotes it.

FBCD was a zoo at my LCS. People lined up outside the door. I didnt get any of the free books but they did have free hotdogs and cupcakes for a $1 both of which were quite tasty.

In books this week All New X-men continued to be solid, Hulk less so.
The secret History of Iron Man started and well, not the most exciting story but lets see were they go.
Iron Man 258.1 was good. Nice to see some armor that actually looks good in a book. Curly haired Tony not so good.
And that was it. So busy there on Saturday I forgot to pick up Superior Spiderman 9, well it will be there next week.

I loved Indestructible Hulk...it continues to be my favourite "Marvel Now" book.

I like Indestructible Hulk as well. And getting to see Walt Simonson drawing Thor in his classic outfit? Priceless.

^Agreed completely. As I said when Simonson drew Thor (even in his new outfit) during his recent guest stint on Avengers, I would pay to read a 22-page story of Thor waiting at the laundrymat waiting for his cape to dry if it were drawn by Walt Simonson.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

You know I just realizes something about the recent Spider-Man stories....

They seem to be basically retreading stories ideas from the 90s that where either abandoned (such as a darker non-quippy Spider-Man which from what I hear of the sells thing people though sucked) or were never done because the writers thought it was a bad idea (such as Mephisto being involved time-travel shenanigans with Spider-Man which from what I heard was thought to be idiotic). heck they even killed Doc Ock again (sort of).

So I'm going to go ahead and guess that next we're going to have a bastardized (if this is even possible) Clone Saga retread.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I think some fans feared Spider-Island would be a re-trend of The Clone Saga and it was anything but. Slott has been touching upon past continuity though. I wouldn't exactly call it a re-trend, but he's been shifting through previous continuity and bringing back concepts and using them slightly different. This is one of the things that I've enjoyed most about his run thus far.

Bah, so he used the multiple Spider-Manish guys idea and bringing crazy ass Miles Waren and his band of clone minions back, he still has the is Parker's body or clone body or not and mysterious figures that tend to clash with a Spider-Man story and just go around being vague and in the end have f@#k all to do with the plot or its resolution and an endless molasses of lies, reconts, and general confusion to wade through and about a whole year to do it in.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

What are you talking about clone body? Kaine is the only clone currently around, and Otto of course is possessing Peter's body. Also what mysterious figures? And what lies? Are you actually reading the book or just reading stuff from the internet or fan reaction? I get you don't like what's being done with the book...you've made that pretty clear in your posts, but I'm just not seeing the other stuff you're mentioning.

I saw those, I was hoping to find some of the big superheros, like Batman, Superman, Iron Man, or Spider-Man.

I was actually talking about The Clone Saga, with its mysterious all powerful characters who seem to exist only to be mysterious and just dissapear, its seeming inability to decide whether Peter Parker or Ben Riley was the clone, and its inability to decide who exactly was running the whole thing or just what the hell was going on.

Spider Island would only seem to cover the Jackel stuff there's still the rest of that train wreck to pull from.
