You mean Axel Alonso. Joe QueSada isn't running the publishing part of Marvel.

That's what they want you to think.

Joe Q hasn't been Editor in Chief since he was promoted and Double A was appointed as his successor back in 2011. Joe Q has the equivalent of Geoff Johns position at DC as Chief Creative Officer.

The current volume of Daredevil ends with 36, but apparently the same creative team will be involved with a re-launch.
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*
I read somewhere that the new DD series gong to be digital only (digital first?).

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I think I might be the only one who enjoyed BoTA. It definitely had it's bumps along the way, and could have been told in far less issues I feel (they certainly wasted a lot of time in the beginning). But I liked it, and out of it I've decided to collect "Uncanny X-Men" to the chagrin of a friend of mine who doesn't really care for Bendis' writing on it (you know who you are ).

I read Waid was going to do a two-issue digital only epilogue to his DD run.
Then the reboot is regular print.

Yeah just the epilogue or as they called it "coda" is digital only. The actual final arc is still print.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Is this punishment for a poor run, or incentive for the dinosaurs to discover the internet?

^ Most likely the latter since Waid's run has been awesome Marvel's been slowly pushing their digital content now.

The new Ms. Marvel has been announced as a teen-age Muslim shape-shifter.

Hunh. Interesting. Regardless of its quality I foresee a swift cancellation.

Sadly, I have to agree with you. It seems like these days, if the book isn't connected somehow to the Avengers, X-Men or Spider-Man, no one cares.

That could be interesting. Personally, I liked Carol Danver's Ms. Marvel identity better than having her be Captain Marvel, but this is at least better than Moonstone as Ms. Marvel (I actually like Moonstone in the T-Bolts, but I thoght Dark Avengers sucked). I'll definately give this a chance, although I doubt it will make enough money to last long.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

That cover sure looks familiar.






So being a shape shifter...is that going to make her a mutant? If I understand that write up she's just going to adopt the name and not likely have any ties to the Kree.
I tend to not like these type of "mantle passings", done for the sake of doing it. Feels forced. I like it when there are at least ties, however loose.
Her being a muslim teenager isn't the issue for me.

Marvel is just re-teenaging a lot of their line.
Morales in Ultimates
Nova
Ghost Rider
Ms.Marvel is just the latest getting the re-teenage-ification treatment.
