August 22, 2013 2:42 pm Ah probably one of the reasons why I only read six comicbooks a month. And that number is going down. And why I hang on to my 70's and 80's collection but have sold the rest. The fun is definitely not there anymore. As much I liked Brubaker's run on Captain America, I have no desire to reread the Winter Soldier,Death of Captain America saga again. Or Hickmans FF Council of Reeds/Death of Human Torch/War of four cities super long extended saga.
August 14, 2013 6:43 pm Hey I might actually pick up FF now. Fraction FF never appealed to me. The fact that Reed would conceal something as big as what was happening from the rest of the team makes no sense considering all the battles they have gone through.
August 14, 2013 3:58 pm Totally agree on both parts. Only online game I ever played was City of Heroes. Miss it but it was too addicting and had to quit. Freedoom Force was a fun time too.
August 14, 2013 3:57 pm Captain America and the Avengers was great. They need to update it and put on a console.
August 14, 2013 3:29 pm I am really torn. Loved ROM and the thought of seeing the spaceknights again in Marvel universe pages plus the Imperial Guard is a great selling point for this not so young Marvel zombie but this is still Hickman. I've grown to dislike or even hate his slow burn story technique. Considering this is just a prelude to something even bigger makes this even less appealing to purchase.
August 9, 2013 4:01 pm So is DC telling MaGuire his art is only good enough for happy tough in cheek books? Kevin might want to contact Sienkiewicz to ink his stuff then.
August 9, 2013 3:56 pm I thought the premise for the new X-Men was interesting enough that I requested the trades for my birthday. Although overall idea is good, are the new X-Men ever going to battle anyone anytime soon??? I counted two battles in the first 10 issues. One battle lasted 4 pages when the new X-Men met older Cyclops and his amazing friends in issue#4. And another battle involved young Angel and older hippie Angel with Hydra in issue #7 or 8. Other than that , there's a whole lot of talking. If I went back in time and brought younger me back to the present, I would not be interested in comics based on the current offerings. For $4, I want some fricking battles in my comics.
August 9, 2013 3:46 pm Based on your recommendation I'll probably give Remender a try again when it hits TPB if only to satisfy my Avengers fix. But I'm staying away from the Legion of Avengers. This guy sums up feelings for Hickman pretty well. http://whycomicbookssuck.blogspot.com/2013/07/jonathan-hickmans-amazing-never-ending.html
August 9, 2013 11:50 am Why doesn't Cyclops blast them both and blame it on the Phoenix force or his older self?
August 9, 2013 11:44 am Dragged on? Forced plot twists? In today's comics? Noooo!!! Seriously it's why my reading stash went from 20+ to maybe 5 a month now. The plots are excruciating long and seemed unnecessarily dragged out. I refuse to read Hickman's and Remender version of the Avengers for precisely that reason. I'm not even buying the Infinity mini series because it's just the first step of a bigger plot that won't be resolved for another few years apparently.
