Name: Ian X

Bio: I grew up on Marvel Comics, especially the 80s Silver Surfer, X-Men, and Excalibur. More recently, I read a wider variety of "grown-up" comics like Hellblazer, 100 Bullets, and Preacher. I'm also an aspiring comics writer, currently working on The Deathlings (http://thedeathlings.com) and a second book. Finally, I'm probably best known as a portrait photographer.

    August 1, 2011 5:06 pm A broad-based boycott is very difficult to pull off. The impact tends to be spread out, so it isn’t noticed by the party you’re trying to make a point to.

    I have a more focused suggestion– What about getting together and agreeing to buy the next issue of “Kirby Genesis” instead of one specific Marvel title– Lets say, Avengers #18?

    If the movement gets traction, it’s a clear strategy to articulate, and Marvel will see the impact in dollars.

    Whether someone is a mutant isn't determined by their parentage, it's determined by whether they have the X-gene. The gene appears able to appear spontaneously (true mutation in the classical sense) or to be passed on. A half-human, half-mutant with the X gene is a mutant. One without it is human.

    My nominations to go on this list would include Star Lord, Namor, and Hellboy. Good calls on Zatanna, Spock, and Invincible though.

    I suspect we will see things come down to three imprints (two and a half, really)...

    DC Universe (superheroes)

    DC (non-superheroes, digital comics, whatever doesn't fit elsewhere)

    Vertigo (mature audiences, fantasy, crime, etc.)


    My big question is where will the creator-owned books end up? Wildstorm and Zuda were the only DC imprint that I know of that did anything creator owned. Will those things end up in the plain "DC" imprint, or with Vertigo?

    August 26, 2010 4:15 pm How sure are we that the only way to get down to 3 is 4-1?
    July 6, 2010 4:54 pm The guy in the top image has "YN" on his chest, not "YM". That, plus the difference in hair color, makes me think it's either a different guy, or an alternate-personality situation.

     That's who wins.

    The End. 

    April 7, 2010 2:15 pm Yes, but will they pair him up with Wonder Man?
    April 7, 2010 2:09 pm I really like that they have been leaving details out of the silhouettes... Not making it too easy for us.
    April 2, 2010 3:19 pm @Joppe - I'd say it isn't about the price, it's the price combined with what you get. $1.99 for brand new comics sounds okay to me. $1.99 for back issues sounds daffy.
