    December 5, 2018 11:34 am In terms of consistently producing groundbreaking work over decades and influencing the medium by others imitating there’s no contest, with all due respect to Denny O’Neil and John Romita etc...
    December 4, 2018 2:18 am The GOAT and still living is Alan Moore, surely...?
    April 24, 2016 8:08 am @Snts6678 with Ellis and Shalvey it was selling as well as the likes of Thor, Iron Man and the X-Men. Of course its a C-list character, but Marvel's current strategy is to flood the market with lots of titles in order to make a little money of each of them to make the whole business model work. MK has its cult following and the casual readers will look when there are good creators, and we are talking about what everyone including on the podcast says is a really good comic! I'm not sure what the problem is.
    April 21, 2016 7:15 am I have a soft spot for Moon Knight since the Moench-Sienkiewicz days, when it was ground-breaking. It’s true there have been a lot of bad runs since, until the Ellis-Declan Shalvey run, which was a critical and commercial success. After they left from selling over 50,000 each month the sales petered out as sales tend to do in comics. I’m puzzled by the “why are they trying to make moon knight work?” view because this is a pattern for almost all the titles. Why are they trying to make anything work? This Lemire-Smallwood issue is the best since that run, it shows the borderline insanity of the character and you never really know if he’s completely delusional. I like this, so I don’t really understand Josh’s comments about not wanting to read delusions in comics, which ought to be the home of delusions IMHO.
    March 3, 2016 2:17 pm Good discussion, chaps. Also loving Goddammed- I thought it was interesting how RM Guera is so much better at drawing the ransacked ruined landscape than the lush paradise :) On long-term plotting BK Vaughn was talking about this at the NICE Con last year and said he knows the end of Saga and milestones along the way, but its going to be a looong series (maybe over 100 issues) and he's always open to revising plot ideas, especially coming from artists. Its all recorded on the Orbital in Conversation podcast. Meanwhile Rick Remender seems to thinking more in terms of limited series- judging by what he said about Tokyo Ghost and Matteo Scalera says they are planning Black Science to finish between 30 and 40 issues. I think its better for creators to think in these finite terms and announce it rather than the pretend infinite ongoing.
    December 1, 2015 2:04 pm I wanted to offer some advice to the listener who's waiting for the sketch. Tweet the artist about it- not in an accusatory way but just 'did you get my email re commission? thanks'. I just had a similar situation but 10 months later with an artist who is kind of a legend but notorious for artistic timelines, and the tweet has him replying to the email! Eureka! Saga should still be on the shelf. I would add Superior Spider-Man to Thor God of Thunder, Hawkeye and Moon Knight. And nothing from the Hickman run…? We would have said so in the early summer I bet...
