Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I disliked Morrissey from the first instant I saw a pretty girl swoon over the thought of him touching them gently. It's possible I still haven't listened to the lad sing, but I can tell that he's a massive wanker on par with Neil Gaimen.

I like Neil Gaiman. I've only seen him on TV a few times, but never thought of him as a wanker. Morrissey comes does come across as a wanker though.

Gaiman is creatively talented with a strong body of work, but he also wears black nail polish and dresses like an Anne Rice vampire on purpose. Sometimes you can separate the artist from the art and sometimes you can't.

Not sure that makes him a wanker, pretentious maybe. A lot of people dressed that way in the 80s.

Curious, I had to google pictures of Neil, in the ones where his hands were visible I didn't see any nail polish, black or otherwise. His clothes, while black aren't very vampiric. Grant Morrison's look seems a lot more affected.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I was insinuating that he still dresses like that today, but then old people always dress as if their favourite era was still prime.

Maybe he wore black nail polish once, but you never really ever get rid of all of it.

I looked through 3 pages of Neil on Google, and he's wearing wall to wall black.

Meanwhile we may not have the same definition of "wanker" since to me it really means "head up your ass" rather than "asshole". Most poets are wankers, but most poets are also godawful wannabe writers. Neil because of his early success is in a Child Emperor's world bubble of his own, just like George Lucas, where no one will say a bad word about him or his work as being anything else other than magnificent genius.

That being said, Sandman is a fabulous comic.

Yeah, he likes black. So did Johnny Cash. Maybe he does have his head up his ass, like I said, I've only seen him a couple of times and that was on TV and he didn't seem that way to me. Perhaps your experience is different.

I didn't really care for 1602. I don't think Gaiman ( or Morrison for that matter ) mesh well with the Marvel Universe. Both seem more at home in the DCU. Come to think of it Angela would be a better fit with the DCU, too. Marvel hasn't played with Judeo-Christian myth the way DC has.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I don't dislike Gaimen. He's probably a decent person and I am definitely jealous.

Johnny Cash wore black like a mobster come to strangle your family.

Again a nice guy, but that's the world he catered to. Working class tough guys.

Oh? The love songs with June?

Toughguys are only toughguys becuase they like girls who like toughguys.

Chicks dig jerks.

(Not that anyone is a jerk, but "you" (the collective you, not you you.) have to fake it till they figure out that everyone lies.)

So did ANYONE like Age of Ultron? I don't think I've heard a single positive review for it

You don't enjoy these things.

You survive them, or give up reading comics.

That's because he's still gushing over what he did to Stark's virtue tonight.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I thought it was going to be a story about Henry going batty, leading into a where we'd have a couple years of Wacky Hank. Alas no it wasn't.

Enlarging ants is cool.

Which jiggers the mad scientist into a cowboy.

Oh my God, they gave Darla Deering Thing Rings!!! She even says, "Thing rings, do your thing!" Bwah-ha-ha-ha!

This comes from a cartoon that was so bad, that when Newsarama listed their Top Ten Worst Comic Book Animated Series, they included it twice!

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

When I was 5 that was my most favourite show on TV.

I even patiently sat through 15 excruciating minutes of The Waltons waiting for bastard every Tuesday and Thursday before it aired.

The Waltons will always be my Kryptonite.
