    March 2, 2011 1:20 pm Synergy doesn't necessarily mean it's a good thing,Ron. I'm getting more and more annoyed that the source material is the one grabbing it's ankles for the movies. It truly should be the other way around. Other than the look & powers of Blade, I have yet to see a character change that betters the comics.
    February 26, 2011 8:04 pm Oops! Sentry shows up. Guess Marvel doesn't get Tom Katers' money.
    February 26, 2011 8:03 pm Amazing Spider-Man #655. Sentry. Guess they don't get Mr. Katers' money.
    February 16, 2011 9:23 pm A shame that she's not starring in the movie of Whedon's script.

    Ditto. He does have a major hard-on for elevating that c-lister to Dr Doom & Magneto levels.

    February 10, 2011 8:33 pm I didn't say only the art was praised. But a lot of the more positive comments on those books are to do with the art/artist. It seems to be that a lot of the buyers here have stuck with New Avengers purely out of love for Immonen's work even if they found that first arc meh.  Oh, I dug the latest New Avengers too, but it was mostly to Deodato's work moreso than anything else.
    February 10, 2011 8:22 pm I'm reading a lot of complaints about static talking head syndrome lately,Conor. He's done it for 2 issues in a row with New Avengers. It's as if he can't have his Avengers banter while in transit & keep the storytelling moving forward. I cite Avengers#9 as the most recent example. I truly don't mind decompression if it's done with substance & fluidity.

    So, How come when I check the threads for new books every week here (or even listen to you guys on the P-O-T-W podcast) the main thing I read about Bendis-helmed books in the comments is praise for the artwork & rarely more than that? I honestly feel the writing has been lazy & inconsistent since he left Daredevil & Alias.
    February 10, 2011 7:56 pm "he's more concerned with telling a good story"
    Ha. He's been phoning it in for almost half a decade now. Civil War:The Confession was the last mainstream Marvel work he did that was memorable  & didn't have a drawn out middle or limp ending. Bendis keeps hiding behind A-list artists to cover up his deficiencies. Tell the truth: After the unholy mess that was Secret Invasion, How many of y'all would have bought Siege, Old Avengers, New Avengers or Prime if Coipel, JRJR,Immonen or Davis hadn't drawn them? Would you guys have bought those aforementioned books or be interested in Moon Knight if say Walt "Widening Gyre" Flanagan had done the art chores instead? Keep it real with yourselves,if not me.
