August 16, 2013 7:37 pm This just makes it easier to migrate away from DC and Marvel to the more original and interesting offerings of Image, Boom, IDW and others. It is a really great time for readers, but I feel like Marvel has positioned their books poorly from a price perspective and DC just really fumbled the reinvention if its universe with Flashpoint. They could have really gone for a fresh start but they half-assed it and left the continuity "ambiguous" so that even the writers don't know what story lines did or did not happen. While it technically allows me to keep those stories I loved, it ultimately kills their ability to relaunch and invigorate their comics. If you look at it, everything that
July 6, 2013 8:46 am This was the only thing that took me out of this wonderful book as well. I get that it is comics, and to be fair, sometimes out of continuity stuff is the best (basically this is where the creative team or publisher tells you to not worry about putting this into a set timeline)...I get that. I still have trouble with the fact that a week ago you basically cyborged-up the lead character of this book and as far as I can tell blew him up shortly after (given the trend in Superior, for all we know Boomerang is supposed to have gotten killed). Now if this book is a hit, clearly Marvel will tell Slott to put a fix in- somehow Boomer survives the explosion and somehow gets put back together (i.e. no more slayer enhancements). Still, on its own this was a good issue. Is it a sex thing?
June 21, 2013 7:14 pm And I was stupid- thinking that there had to be more behind this story than a big excuse to bring Angela into the Marvel U. So stupid...
June 20, 2013 10:21 pm On the money- I have no idea how they can build so much hype around one of the terrible 90's women exploitation characters that had zero personality and somehow less clothing. Was ANYONE asking for a return of this character (aside from Gaiman who holds licensing rights)? I let the polybag fool me into thinking something big might actually happen in this issue- what I got was about five different artists telling a messy story about the evils of time travel. I also agree that this story felt bigger in the first few issues- then it dragged on, then time travel got involved...ugh.

June 19, 2013 8:38 pm How do they, in good conscience, promo this as the biggest secret in comics? I understand that they have to sell books, and I get it that they are not at fault for the big reveals that came out months ago, but really? Art so confidential that no one else knows what is going to be there...except anyone with an internet connection. This was not that ground-breaking of an event to me, and it generally just made messy continuity and storylines messier- I am going to crawl back into the numerous image and dark horse books that are so much more interesting. Best of luck to the Marvel U in keeping things interesting...until the next status quo changing event that starts next week.

June 14, 2013 4:47 pm So were you sad when you saw solicits for the next issue...McNiven is done already. At least for a few issues.
April 28, 2013 12:31 pm That is monstrous! Who is trying to change that much? The original series only ran for 46 issues- that is almost $10 a piece! You can go to sites like mycomicshop.com and get most of the series for less than two bucks each/ many at $1.50
