Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

Next week's previews...
For me, Captain Marvel, FF, Journey Into Mystery, New Mutants, and Winter Soldier. I'll also be getting this week's issue of Uncanny X-Men. It was the only book being pulled for me this week and it wasn't worth the trip for just the one book.

Are there people right now being paid not to make SHIELD comics.

What an unusually timid conspiracy.

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

Looks like "Avengers Vs X-Men" will be the model that Marvel uses for all future event books (multiple rotating creators and artists). I just hope that there is better coordination next time between them or they're going to be having the same problems again and again.

Also..."Winter Solider" is ending in January.

Ah well...yeah, it won't be the same without Brubaker. So I'll be dropping too.

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

I don't entirely understand why you'd leave a title immediately after a change in writer, unless it's an author you already know you don't like. We know the industry needs new voices, so why not give the new person a chance on a title you've liked?

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

I'm sure the new guy will do a fine job. I'm just not interested because Brubaker is the one who established Winter Solider and the relationship with 'Tasha in the first place, his writing is what makes the dynamic in the book so compelling. I'm just not interested in another writer. To me this was Brubaker's book. It has his stamp and work all over it.

I almost feel the same way about "Fantastic Four" and "FF" but am giving Fraction a chance because I've like some of his stuff in the past.

Action Comics will be the same over on the DC end ...depending on who the writer is that succeeds Grant Morrison, I might drop the book entirely.

Financial reasons. I'm looking for books to drop.

Financial reasons is one reason I'm going to TPB's for my DC books as soon as the current arcs are over. That and I also have stocked up on so many TPBs from shows and/or online sales I have plenty of reading material.

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

This is interesting. Are their similar problems at Marvel that there are at DC editorial wise? Ed Brubaker is supposed to be an Architect. Yet he has no projects beyond "Winter Solider" apparently.

Maybe it's just me, but I don't see anything that seems to indicate Brubaker has some kind of issue with Marvel. It sounds to me like he thought WS was ending and so he took a new gig, and now he'll be to busy with it to work on Marvel stuff too.

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

Maybe he doesn't have a problem with editorial but it does seem strange to me that an apparent Architect doesn't have anything post "Winter Solider". Maybe that will change in the next weeks and months. I think Christos Gage is in the same boat once Avengers Academy concludes unless I'm mistaken. Don't think he has anything announced Marvel wise either.

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

I understand financial reasons, definitely. And I guess I understand the "his book" thing: I suppose nobody has ever done Birds of Prey in a way that really redefined it as their book rather than Simone's. At the same time, there was a time when Fantastic Four was Stan Lee's book ...
