Re: Marauders #10

Decent issue. I agree with BC that I always like seeing the X-Men be competent, which is something that's largely been delivered in spades on this title (compare to X-Force, which seems to whiplash between outstanding competence and utter stupidity). Took me awhile to recognize Bishop, the haircut m...

Re: August 2020 solicitations

Funny enough, I actually found that I haven't really been missing comics. I enjoy my weekly trip to the LCS to talk to folks and see all the cool stuff on the shelves, I enjoy reading comics, and I enjoy talking about them... but I haven't really been missing them. Just still too many other things t...

Re: Marvel moves into digital only issues

I wouldn't say that it's a test ballon for digital, as there won't be any valid data to compare the sale figures with. Now if they published the issues in paper and digitally at the same time, they could check which version is better received. This also is no real test if digitally is received at a...

Re: Marvel moves into digital only issues

Interesting. Probably a test balloon to see how digital only goes (and why they picked a lot of titles already a few issues in, so they know the sales numbers of the print issues). If the sales fall off a cliff it won't be replicated any time soon. If they stay the same then we'll probably see more ...

Hmm, gonna be a drip feed for awhile. Week of new titles (and only a handful) alternating with a week of trades.

On the other hand, when she was in the mutant prison in X-Men Gold #23-24 she wasn't wearing an inhibitor collar like everyone else. Was she (and the Morlocks) mentioned again in Uncanny X-Men (2019) after Cyclops set them up in Chernaya? Since the easiest answer is just "she got killed and resurrec...

Re: Diamond Halts Comic Distribution

Thanks for those numbers Token, I always wondered what the breakdown was. I think you're right that the decision was made to try and avoid killing off local comic stores (though I bet a lot will go under regardless simply due to being unable to pay rent).

Re: X-Men #9

Yeah it just made the whole thing feel a bit disjointed to me. I liked a lot of the surrounding stuff (backstory on the Kree and the Brood, the stuff with the Imperial Guard, the ending) but it felt like the central story was lacking.

Re: X-Men #9

Maybe I'm missing something but what was the X-Men's plan? I understand taking the Egg away from Earth but they just keep running with it to the point of getting boxed in by all the Brood and... then what? If Broo hadn't eaten it they just die?

Re: Diamond Halts Comic Distribution

Both DC and Marvel have been quiet so far about whether they plan to still release digitally (Marvel originally said Doctor Aphra #1, slated for next week, would release but then walked back on that). There's been speculation that if the companies are ever going to dump print and go all-digital, now...

Re: GSXM: Nightcrawler #1

Hickman basically admitted as such in interviews: We actually weren’t going to do Giant-Size one-shots, they were going to be five annuals, written by me, of all the other Dawn of X titles. However, there was some kind of concern about numbering, or solicitation, that would complicate that, so we sw...

There's a country named Terra Verde and another called Tierra Verde. Marvel writers don't seem to be very creative with these names. Terra Verde is in Central America (borders Mexico). Tierra Verde is in South America (located between Suriname and French Guiana). I should've figured Terra Verde pre...

Also, we gotta take into consideration this nice mythological component...that I loved as an added flourish. X-Force does the data pages so well... Except that Terra Verde has been repeatedly named as a South American country, but all the other stuff (Maya, Olmec, the general design of the temple) ...

This was pretty fun, a bit light but that's fine.

I liked the use of Armor here, probably the best she's b...
