    Wow, the colorist of Absolute Carnage randomly colored some person's quick little fan art doodle on Twitter, lol. And it actually looks good, yet again proving that the average comic book reader doesn't value good colorists' contributions to the medium enough.

    Me: I really don't care about Deadpool as a character.

    Marvel: What if we give the character to Kelly Thompson & Chris Bachalo?

    Me: ...maybe.

    MARVEL's SCREAM Gets Her Own Ongoing - But Who Are They Now?

    I don't understand why Marvel would follow up its massive Venom & Carnage event w/ an allegedly ongoing series (until they cancel it 5 or 6 issues in) centered on Scream, of all characters, written & illustrated by people I'm not super familiar with.

    That being said... What I've seen of the artist (Chris Mooneyham) is pretty strong, & I have a lot of nostalgia for the Scream design, so... I'm actually pretty likely to check this out, lol. :venom:

    I've been reading Joss Whedon's X-men and I love it. Definitely my favorite X-men story I've read so far (it hasn't been that many)

    Whedon's Astonishing X-Men, Morrison's New X-Men, and the Messiah trilogy are really must-reads for any X-Men fan IMO

  12. Art Spiegelman: golden age superheroes were shaped by the rise of fascism
    Back in the benighted 20th century comic books were seen as subliterate trash for kiddies and intellectually challenged adults – badly written, hastily drawn and execrably printed. Martin Goodman, the founder and publisher of what is now known as Marvel Comics, once told Stan Lee that there was no point in trying to make the stories literate or worry about character development: “Just give them a lot of action and don’t use too many words.” It’s a genuine marvel that this formula led to works that were so resonant and vital.

    The comic book format can be credited to a printing salesman, Maxwell Gaines, looking for a way to keep newspaper supplement presses rolling in 1933 by reprinting collections of popular newspaper comic strips in a half-tabloid format. As an experiment, he slapped a 10 cents sticker on a handful of the free pamphlets and saw them quickly sell out at a local newsstand. Soon most of the famous funnies were being gathered into comic books by a handful of publishers – and new content was needed at cheap reprint rates. This new material was mostly made up of third-rate imitations of existing newspaper strips, or genre stories echoing adventure, detective, western or jungle pulps. As Marshall McLuhan once pointed out, every medium subsumes the content of the medium that precedes it before it finds its own voice.

    Not sure if this was shared here yet, but it's quite good.

    I know it's a long shot that any of you have read Clue: Candlestick right?

    Had to have been a fake out but holy shit City of Bane. That was a hell of a turn of a page.

    Wow that 12 issue Vision comic was a lot darker and creepier than I would have thought

    (I loved that Vision series btw)

    Also just read House of M last night for the first time. I really enjoyed it. Been trying to catch up on what WandaVision may adapt from and what it could set up for. Excited for what they do with it.

    With all of the Marvel announcements, one of my initial thoughts was "oh, I have a lot of comics to read now" haha. I'm hoping that after I move, I'll have more time for that. The Vision series is so weird and fun.

    Yeah I can totally see a House of M-like adaptation of Scarlett Witch creating the illusion of Vision still existing, like she did with her children.

    Also, Peter Parker's arc in House if M was so tragic and heartbreaking. Here he is knowing what life would be like with two women he's madly in love with, and it was an easier decision when only one of them was alive. And now he has to remember it all, his child, Uncle Ben still being alive.. and knowing how much of a success MJ would be without him. Really felt for him.

    I just read the Spider-Man House of M comics and I'm a bit confused how it fits in with the main House of M story. Why was Peter out in public when Wolverine found him if he was supposed to be faking his death? And where did his journal come from that revealed what happened in the original reality, and who really was the green goblin who leaked it to Jameson?

    I digitally flipped through Marvel Comics 1000 this morning, & loved what I saw. It really is just straight up 80 different one-page strips by a wild range of (unfortunately, as usual, mostly male) creators both classic & modern. Without having done a proper read, I'm thinking this will be my favorite of these special one-shots the Big 2 have done these past few years (Rebirth, Legacy, Action, Detective), even though it's technically not a one-shot w/ Marvel 1001 out next month.

  22. Dustin is selling 6x9 color pencil drawings with 35 prints for $100. The drawing is a grab bag, but I like what I got.

    Tess Fowler already came out against Brian Wood years ago for being a creep, but if anyone forgot about that or just didn't care at the time, here's another woman's account.

    Oh hey, some repercussions for being a creep. Nice.
