Well we got the preview. Underwhelmed. I wish they gave the writing chores to someone who enjoys writing a married Spider-Man because this is really lackluster so far. http://www.comicvine.com/articles/preview-amazing-spider-man-renew-your-vows-1/1100-152412/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter
Renew Your Vows is pretty bad so far. I’ll finish run though and then it looks like it’s time to take a break from ASM. Spider-Man 2099 will continue so I’m on board for that.
Loving Secret Wars. Issue 2 was really cool, seeing Doom’s scarred up face for the first time in the history of Marvel Comics.
Not really interested in the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man run where he will be a millionaire and STILL not married UGH… But here’s a looooooong and interesting exchange between John Byrne and Dan Slott.
Turns out I really enjoyed Spider-Man Renew Your Vows. It had a really poor start but the rest of the issues were really good. I’m surprised that Slott can write a good marriage as much as he dislikes Spider-Man’s marriage.
Now that Miles Morales is joining 616 and there will be a young Peter Parker in high school book named Spidey I really don’t see why Marvel won’t leave Spider-Man married after Secret Wars. Seems silly now that there will be two Spider-Man books that deal with “youth.” Hopefully after this whole Spider-Billionaire fiasco ends cooler heads will prevail and let Peter grow up. Doubt it though.
Because Bendis wants MJ for Iron Man. I was willing to give the dude the benefit of the doubt during his X-Men run, but his ideas just seem like he wants to stir the pot for controversy - not an actual interesting angle. Almost like he gets off on angering fans.
I’m all for interesting changes, but at some point you gotta throw fans a bone for their loyalty. Let Peter and MJ stay married - what’s the harm?
X-Men 92 confirmed as an ongoing title. Deadpool confirmed OH SNAP! They also said they got a confirmation to use a 90s property. Please be X-Men vs. Street Fighter… Lol oh well it’s fun to dream.
I finally read Old Man Logan and while it was good, I think it’s an overrated arc. Perhaps people just loved seeing their favorite characters in a different paradigm, but it fell flat for me. The only part I really enjoyed was Mysterio tricking Wolverine into killing the X-Men. That was pretty boss.
Also read Alias and loved it - though they crapped all over Luke Cage with that “What If”-style ending issue.
My favorite moment of Old Man Logan was when he was talking to Old Man Hawkeye about his past and all he could say was, “They broke me, bub.”
Just read Secret Wars #9 and it was awesome! Great Fantastic Four story that’s just not called a Fantastic Four story to stick it to Fox lol! Definitely gong to miss Hickman writing Doctor Doom at Marvel.
Pretty cool write up of Spider-Man in the Captain America Civil War film, told from the perspective of a Spider-Man fan. It draws comparisons to the movie and Spider-Man’s escapades in the comics. Spoilers obviously.
Excellent film! My favorite live action Spider-Man ever.
What do you guys think of Infamous Iron Man? I’ve read the 1st 3 issues so far & I like it
Haven’t messed with it. Mostly reading The Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows, X-Men '92 and Spider-Man / Deadpool these days. I should get the Civil War II TPB next month.
It’s a great read bro. I bought Hulk #1 Sunday & I like the story development so far. I just hope Marvel doesn’t pull the plug on this too early like they did the She Hulk issues in the past
Cosplayer Jennifer Van Damsel was used as reference for Captain Marvel on a cover of Civil War II The Oath issue 1. That’s pretty cool! I saw her at New York Comic Con last year cosplaying as Cammy.
A variant cover of an upcoming event is making fans upset because Marvel might turn a Holocaust survivor into a Nazi.
It’s just a variant cover though, they didn’t draw Hydra symbol on him like they did with the other Hydra variant covers of Avenger members.
You know for a company that is catering to social justice warriors a heck of a lot, and these are people who get upset if Spider-Woman’s butt is on a cover these days - Marvel really didn’t think this one through. Lol!
Seriously though, it’s just a cover variant. Who cares. Don’t like it don’t buy it. The funny thing is, most of the people complaining have never seen the inside of a comic book store anyway. It’s just the next thing for SJWs to get angry about that they don’t support anyway.
So, How do you think of Logan movie?
I was surprised that I liked it since I really hated Wolverine 1, 2 and almost all of Fox’s Marvel movies. I give it 5 “BERSERKER BARRAGES” out of 5.
FREE Guardians of the Galaxy comic from Peter David and Todd Nauck! A bit on the silly side since it’s a commercial for Hanes and all that, but it’s still FREE!
Great article on Christopher Priest, an African American writer for Marvel and DC. He was even an assistant editor for Marvel for a time under Jim Shooter. He also wrote Black Panther and created Everett K. Ross. Good read before you check out the Black Panther movie next week if you’re going.
