Re: Jim Lee X-Men Trading Card Series 1

I’m not sure it’s fair to conclude that Lee “created” Graydon and Blaze. He may have included someone else’s creations, not yet debuted, by request of editorial.

No idea who glasses guy is. Maybe a character that didn’t make the cut.

Re: House of X #6 (SPOILERS)

Magneto’s loyalty pledge firmly established that the historical Carles-Erik friendship/rivalry is part of the Krakoa continuity. Likewise, Charles dream. How that can be reconciled with the flashbacks remains to be seen. I suspect there’s a story behind “while you were sleeping” related to memory bl...

Re: X-Men vs Dracula

IIRC, it also contained the issue of Uncanny that had a Dracula story (#160? 161?) I didn’t buy it, probably because it was all reprints of material I had elsewhere.

Edit: A couple of copies up on eBay only describe reprinting the annual, so maybe I’m misremembering.

Re: Digital comics

When I was a teenager I bagged and boarded my books and stuck them in a bag that sat in the corner of my closet. Then I realized they had no real value and I left them behind. I feel bad, not so much for dumping them, but I wish I would have donated them. The only physical books I own now are the S...

Re: The Quiet Council of Krakoa

I guess it’s. Not clear to me if the council is to be a democratic or technocratic body. Are we trying to represent the various factions and interests, to ensure each has a voice on the council? Or are we trying to create a body that manages Krakoa effectively? If it is supposed to be a democratical...

Re: Digital comics

In the past I’ve had an LCS that I wanted to support. Right now, I have no particular shop, and it’s inconvenient for me to go to one. I don’t have the desire to nest in building a relationship or take time (and gasoline) to drive someplace. Plus, I don’t want paper comics cluttering up the house. I...

Re: Digital comics

It’s a problem for those of us who read trades and back issues and don’t keep track of what’s published when. I don’t know what to buy if I want to read the stories right before Hickman’s run. It can’t be figured out just by looking at the covers. It often cant be figured out by looking at the descr...

No-Place was identified in House of X #1 as a flower which produces “a habitat that exists outside the collective consciousnes...

Granted its not totally ethical/legal... but you could do what I've done with the events or new series that I'm iffy about. Download some "free" digital versions for the short-term and then buy the TPB when it comes out. You are only a day or so behind release date for the discussion fun but you ca...

Re: Digital comics

I do find single issues unsatisfying. I tend to read the single issue in about 10-minutes. It's not until the storyline is complete that I go back and really savor and reflect on the details. With the trade, it's all there and I can kind fo flip around and make sure I get all the parts of the narrat...

Re: Powers of X #5 (SPOILERS)

Flipping through some back issues, I find the Cerebro helmet shown here looking a lot like how it was drawn in UXM #213 (used by Betsy) and UXM #273 (used by Jean). Hickman can't just start a new continuity when the rest of the Marvel Universe stays as is. He also can't have Moira exactly repeat a ...

Re: Digital comics

I spend cash on comics in a really weird way. I buy as TPBs, but not necessarily committed to specific titles, which means I can pop into my LCS and easily put down £70 to £80 in a single visit, but then not pick up anything for another month or two. It's really sporadic as to how much I spend and ...

*sigh* I would pay $10/mo for a Netflix-like subscription where I get access to all of the new books when they're released, but not the back catalogue. Books could rotate out of the subscription after 12-months, so that whole story arcs are available for re-read when they've finished. Probably they'...

Digital comics

Is there such a thing as a subscription to a online comic service that gives access to new marvel comics when they’re released? One where you pay a monthly fee, and then don’t have to buy each issue individually? Seems like I’m going to be keeping up with Hickman’s run, but I’d rather not be spendin...

"Moira's No-Place" ...I'm dying. This. I hypothesized that Moira took herself off the board to “protect” this timeline. Moira being tucked away in life 9 and now here does seem to give credit to the theory that the timeline is wiped clean after her passing (or at least that’s what Hickman would hav...

Re: Powers of X #5 (SPOILERS)

A Polygon article pointed out Hickman's interest in philosopher Martin Buber , who warned against letting the universal desire for community destroy the individual. Through that lens, there's a pretty clear thematic connection between X¹ and what we're witnessing in X³. In the latter, we're seeing ...

See I buy your logic NuD but given how much other people really like the Moira-X reset theory. Maybe this new world is sorta like 616 but with changes brought on by Moira. What if the life we’re seeing this whole time is life 11 and we only thought it was 10? TL;DR for what’s below: I think fans wi...

The involvement of Shi'Ar technology (to which Xavier first got access when he first accompanied Lilandra to space in UXM #117-118) and Forge, puts a limit on who can be ressurected. Some folks died too soon, without their full essence ever being recorded. (Most noteably, John Proudstar, Changeling...
