Re: Captain Marvel#1.......Again???

Kyle, did you have something on your mind? "Lucky enough to live in the margins of society"? Have you ever actually met anyone along those lines or is this more assumption on you part? Your post seems to have some, I dunno, overtones of overcompensation on your part? Or was that simple sarcasm? Both...

Re: Captain Marvel#1.......Again???

All the crap she's had dumped on her over the years, and they handed her title off to an Agenda. Not a different character or an apprentice, just some walking sales pitch. Was I that naïve when I was a kid? I remember reading her first issue back in the 70's. Young white male not old enough to be in...

Seeing stuff like this makes me realize its time for me to put the idea of reading comics on the shelf. G'luck guys, I'm out.

Re: The Superior Spider-Man

He hit her in the mouth and busted a tooth. That is so completely off base from what I saw Parker as doing to some everyday thug, let alone someone he's shared a bed with, for years, that I don't even know where to begin. Of course then I realized that was the answer to my question as to why no one ...

Re: The Superior Spider-Man

Ok, I bought that Cat issue. As it happens there was an even better example than the telepathy or Wolverine bits. He hit the Black Cat in the mouth and knocked out one of her teeth, then webbed her up and notified the authorities. No idea what she was really doing, all we see is her coming out of a ...

Re: The Superior Spider-Man

I know nothing about this book, other than the basics, Parker dead, Ock in body, etc. The thing is, I see him getting friendly with Wolverine and I wonder how in hell Jimmy doesn't spot this guy for a fake. Or he'll be walking by some telepath who'll fail to clue in as to whats going on. Does he hav...

Re: Captain Marvel#1.......Again???

Actually, I think "political correctness gone to far" has a lot to do with why Captain Marvel failed. People are so afraid of offending someone, anyone, that the characters they write about, the circumstances they're involved in, the stories themselves, get so bent out of shape that they become unre...

Re: Captain Marvel#1.......Again???

Sorry if I was unclear. The current soon to be axed title is bi-monthly, 16 released in September, 17 coming out in November, and so on. No idea what her new schedule would be, but at a guess it'll probably go monthly until failing horribly. Like the last one.

Re: Captain Marvel#1.......Again???

"Learned" a few things since the first post. First, there seems to be several new female titles coming out, Widow and Elektra seem to be getting their own books as well. Maybe this is some push and Carol got tossed in. Maybe its just a bunch of mini series but I don't think so, seemed like full blow...

Re: Captain Marvel#1.......Again???

Matt, that sounds like a huge nutjob conspiracy theory. Sadly, it makes perfect sense and is pretty much what I feared. Lack of a spine is one of the biggest problems with this world today, I just hoped a company like Marvel would have enough cash to fill in the gaps I guess. Common courtesy and a l...

Captain Marvel#1.......Again???

So it seems Captain Marvel is ending with issue 17, apparently it is now a bi-monthly title to boot. However, I just saw a cover for Captain Marvel #1 coming out in March of next year with the same author as they have now. I'm a little at a loss here. From what I've seen/understand the title sells h...

Re: PROMETHEUS [6/18/12]

Saw this today. There were a few.....inconsistencies. Ok. There were a lot. Not really bad if you're looking to kill some time, or brain cells. Not what you want if you're looking for a new classic. Alien or Blade Runner this aint.

Re: All DC comics to relaunch with Issue #1 in September

Thats an ongoing trend. The trade for Crisis on Infinite Earths done in regular paper stock is almost twice as thick as the trade for Infinite Crisis done on thick glossy paper. Both series had twelve issues. So yeah, wouldn't surprise me to see another reduction.

Re: REVIEW: Captain Marvel #1

Saw a post on comicvine where someone compared Ms Marvel sales to this Cap travesty. Basically, each issue of Ms M sold twice as many copies as the Cap stuff. Heres hoping Marvel listens to sales figures at least and guts this beast by issue 6. I think they'll finish the current story arc at least.

Re: All DC comics to relaunch with Issue #1 in September

It's just some poser using the same name... Same thing with every other character in DC since the relaunch... I'm offended that these imposters are allowed to run around sullying the names of those who came before, but I don't think of them as the same characters at all... The DCU characters I love...
