And to be even more nitpicky, the Nova ongoing started after Annihilation, so issues of it would tie into Conquest then War of Kings then Thanos Imperative. GOTG didn't start until after Conquest I believe.

Re: JD's Comic Book Thread

The Sam Alexander Black Nova, in Ultimate Spider-Man the Saturday morning cartoon seriously predates his first sighting in the comics... At least I thought it did, the comic origin was January 2012 and the morning cartoon was April 2012. My bad. Close though.

Haw hwahahahw! HA!

Under the Aliases they list for Sam, is "Darth Nova".

The description of the first GotG collection refers to "back-to-back Annihilation wave", so I had been assuming that was a reference to the two Anihilation miniseries.

Re: JD's Comic Book Thread

Well I haven't looked at this thread yet but I just thought I'd pop in to say I picked up Starlight on a whim today and really enjoyed it. I caught myself thinking it would make a great movie and upon doing a little Googling it turns out Fox is already developing it. Has anyone else read it yet?

Re: JD's Comic Book Thread

I just read it. I love anything by Mark Millar. His ideas are never original, but I love his twists on them.

Re: JD's Comic Book Thread

He wrote Wanted, Kick Ass, Secret Service, Nemesis, Superior, famous runs on Wolverine and Fantastic Four... he tends to take old used ideas and give them a post-modern satiric violent real-world take on them.

Re: JD's Comic Book Thread

Anyone else trying out Dynamite's version of the Gold Key character relaunch dubbed: DynaKey by most?
Turok launched in Feb
Magnus this month
Solar in April
Dr.Spektor in May

Turok Dinosaur Hunter #2 hit yesterday and I'm indifferent thus far.
Native American Indians=check
Turok as lead and badass=check
Andar as sidekick & "blood brother"=check
Dinos=check

I'm conditioned to expect that and two issues in we've gotten just that. However, what I need some narrative on is the idea that European Crusaders have made it to America in the 13th century with captive Dinos. That they essentially use as shock troops? I need answers on this twist. Forget the being in America a century before Columbus and I don't feel like debating Vikings & Chinese claims, how do Crusaders even have Dinos and the means to "domesticate" them or at least control them?

Yup, missed all those. I took a long break from comics from about 1997 to 2011. The only Marvel titles I'm picking up right now are Superior Spider-Man and Superior Spider-Man Team-Up. Although I did pick up Moon Knight yesterday. I haven't read it yet though.

Re: JD's Comic Book Thread

Millar also wrote the excellent Marvel "Civil War" that kind of kickstarted the current tone of the Marvel Universe. I'd also recommend "American Jesus" as well by him (it was actually supposed to be his first team up with Matthew Vaughn but then that turned into the film adaption of "Kick-Ass" when they met each other at the "Stardust" premire).

Gah! How could I forget Civil War! The most famous thing he's ever done! I loved Civil War. Actually everything he does it great. Though I found "Old Man Logan" and the ending of his FF run to be a let down.

Re: JD's Comic Book Thread

So, just curious. Are there any Savage Dragon readers here? I just signed up at the Image forums so I could participate in the Erik Larsen part of the board and got a chuckle out of his forum rules.

Re: JD's Comic Book Thread

I read the first 50 issues and loved them, and I've been collecting it since then but I haven't actually read of it yet There's just too many comics and not enough time!

Re: JD's Comic Book Thread

I read the first 30+ issues of Savage Dragon and the first 50 of Spawn.
My flirtation with Image essentially ended there with nary a glance since.
No, I don't read Walking Dead. Like the show though.
That is funny, don't be a dick.
