I really love this line up (except random Ghost Rider? I don't know, won't judge it until I read it). I'm kind of excited for it but trying to keep my expectations low since Marvel haven't been the best recently.

I mean, yet another re-launch is pretty stupid, but I can forgive if it turns out to be good.

Guess he must be getting an arm upgrade. Mjolnir is gold too.

It was cut off by Malekith a few years ago after Thor became unworthy and couldn't use Mjolnir, and Odin made a replacement metal one for him (he could have just grown the arm back for him but I can't remember the reason why he didn't)

Really? Completely missed that (haven't been coming for years properly) :d

I knew he was unworthy/Odinson.

Cheers

Terrible idea, they did the same with red hulk just make him hot, that'll work. It'll be re set in a year when he dies and then a few months later when he comes back again. Its sad as Wolverine in old man Logan and the Ultimate version was interesting.

Wish my image sig would work

Probably the best pick for it out of the writers they have (well, Al Ewing probably would have been better if they wanted to do something as grand as Hickman's run since he's basically the closest thing). He's really good with the cosmic side of things as shown in his Silver Surfer series and he really knows his gooseberry fool about Marvel history which is pretty important for a title like this.

I still pay attention to DC...well Batman.

It's just DC has been "solid" for a while now - while all the cluster chuffs are coming from Marvel

Steve Ditko has been found dead. He was the co-creater of Spider-Man. He made it to 90.

:(

EDIT: Glib smilie response aside, that's upset me. I don't know how much of his work people are familiar with but Spider-Man and Dr. Strange are just a starting point. Rorschach from Watchmen is based heavily on his characters The Question and Mr. A, and he also created a number of characters(including Hawk and Dove, the allegorical Vietnam superheroes) for D.C. His personal politics and commitment to Objectivism as a concept bled through into a lot of his work and I found them quite questionable, but he's a sad loss for the industry, and for anyone who loves comics.

Is Brian K. Vaughn's back catalog worth getting into? I've recently devoured all TPBs of Saga and Paper Girls and loved them (although I feel Saga has dipped since Paper Girls started); do Ex Machina and Y: The Last Man still hold up in 2018?
