June 25, 2013 10:44 am It's weeks like this that either make you love our crazy hobby or make you want to start culling, and it all depends on the quality of the books in your stack. Personally, there is a lot to look forward to and be excited about this week.
June 19, 2013 3:31 pm I think it looks dark. Not in terms of subject. I mean it VISUALLY looks REALLY dark. There were several shots where I could not make out what was going on. Did anyone else think this was a problem?
June 17, 2013 2:23 pm I'll check out the first issue. Chances are this will not be my cuppa. All I really care about is that this will (hopefully) not derail what is going on in the main WW book. (Please God, no crossovers!)
June 12, 2013 1:16 pm I think the name "General Zod" is also very audience-friendly. Just by hearing it, you know he's A) probably a man, B) accomplished miltiarily, and C) probably a bad guy ("Z" names tend to be for bad guys, Zorro and Zoolander being the obvious exceptions.) WIith name like Jax-Ur, you're kinda flying blind. Could be a man, could be imp. Zod is also really easy to spell and non-alien.
June 12, 2013 11:18 am Great article. I will watch Man of Steel with more interest now. Thanks!
June 7, 2013 2:17 pm No, what both periods have in common is Bob Harras as EiC. Marvel 1995 - 2000; DC 2010 - Present. It's the same crap, different day.

May 23, 2013 6:21 pm I cannot believe that there is any question as to who has the film rights to Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, and I am guessing it's Fox. When the deal was structured with Fox, I am sure they created a list of characters Fox gets to use. Why would you leave something like this open to interpretation? You wouldn't. (I am thinking this same issue came up with with regards to the Skrulls, which originally appeared in a Fantastic Four comic, and did not appear in the first Avengers movie.) What is more likely is that Whedon was trying to workout a deal with Fox to use Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch for the Avengers franchise without their rights reverting back permanently to Marvel. I am sure he was working the angle of win-win, as Whedon's Avengers 2 would raise the characters profile.
