Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Battle of the Atom conclusion was shite.

There was so much set up in the beginning and then at the end nothing.

I'm much more enjoying the specials where these kids are playing with the Hulk and Superior Spider-Man.

Speaking of Superior Spider-Man... I so thought that he was going to nail Felicia.

Bad putty cat, bad putty cat.

Meow-BEHAVE!

POW! Straight to the moon!

After he punked out with Mary Jane, there were reasons not to sleep with Mary Jane but his final analysis was that he shouldn't bother with a doomed relationship and... It was all just code from the editors that Mary-Jane was going to stay in her Mylar bag till Peter comes back.

What a crock of shit.
"If the series is in fact coming to a close, it's likely due to a story-driven reason."
Sorry, not a reason. Comics existed for decades with story lines coming and going while the numbering survived.

I miss the days when a change in direction and/or creative meant just advertising the newness with in-house ads.

The days of a title, from either of the big two, getting to a number 50 now are few and far between.

I was waiting on TPB for DD anyway so I'm glad I wasn't vested in the monthly title thinking my monthly purchase would keep it going. Clearly Marvel doesn't care, they are going to relaunch again and again and again just to get the artificial sales bump from the suckers who still think #1 means "starting point". It really doesn't you fools and you aren't going to flip this #1 in 10 years for a downpayment on something. Just stop being suckers for #1's already.

*rant over, sorry*

You know, re-numbering has never, ever really bothered me. I guess what's inside the book is more important to me that the number on the outside,.

You never filled up a school text book with massive lists of everything you own in red biro, and everything you don't in black biro, wade into a convention, and still crawl out with 40 bucks worth of comics you already have back at home?

I certainly don't have that many. Probably close to 10,000.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Re-numbering and value have never been an issue to me since I've always collected comics to read them. So I guess that is partly why I haven't responded as negatively to the constant re-numbering and re-launches as others have.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

It's really not the quantity, it's the time.

Remembering 60 thousand covers is easy, continuing to remember 60 thousand covers for 20 years without rebate is somewhat of a tax to my resources.

I'm not counting my digital comics.

I moved over to digital (exclusively) about 6 years ago, and that's probably doubled my collection, even though I don't really consider digital comics to be "real".

Does anyone else think that Kid Immortus is a piss-poor addition to the Kang Dynasty?

I really don't have a problem with renumbering. It does sense to do it as a way to let people know that the story and/or creative team is changing.

Renumbering is a cheap attempt at a cash grab. They should just relaunch everything every January with new number ones and be done with it.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Battle of the Atom did indeed end with a whimper. For a second I thought they would be shocking and keep ALL the future characters around, but I guess it's notable they kept a few. As for the increasing game of musical chairs between Team Cyke and Team Wolvie... it's seriously losing its impact when people keep swapping back and forth like this.

Would have been nice if they had a good artist for the finale. Frank Cho's name is the on the cover but he didn't do the art...

INFINITY #5 had me greatly confused. The ending of the previous Avengers issue showed the Builder threat to be greater than ever with the robots going into Kill Everything mode. Yet in this issue they are apparently entirely defeated off-screen? What the hell? And suddenly the emphasis is shifting back to Earth. I enjoyed this series but I would not have done the two separate stories like this; both came off rushed and unfulfilled.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Hey Light!

You're supposed to be reading Avengers and New Avengers for the necessary tie ins that are required for the story to make sense... And then there's 4 or 5 other titles a month that are just set in the back ground as the invasion of New York happens which you can ignore as filler crap.

Thunderbolts has been delightful. They keep telling the Punisher that his crusade against random guido's shouldn't be important while the city is being bombarded from space... And she's saying "It's New York, this happens every other week, just keep your head down."

Yeah, I remember an interview with Hickman where he apologized in advance for not being able to fit the entire story in the main book.

Wow. BotA really stunk didn't it? Although, I liked the final epilogue...



Looking forward to next week's Amazing X-Men and the return of Nightcrawler.
