I've enjoyed reading the whole run again, some of it is a bit lacklustre but I like the supporting cast they build up around Peter.

Steve Dillon has died, that's two major artists this year now who have died in their 50's :( Impossible to overstate just how important he's been to comics, so much of the look of both British and Vertigo comics is down to his art.

Didn't even realise Glyn Dillon was his brother until right now

Far too young. I always enjoyed his Punisher work.

So I've just discovered that there's a DC comic series of He-Man :o

Has anyone read any of them? Seriously considering buying the back catalogue (if that's a thing you can do?).

Jack Chick, creator of the most insane Christian comic strips ever is dead

Here's a selection of panels from his works

A significant part of comics history for all the wrong reasons :lol:

Good thing I pre-ordered the War of Kings omnibus when I did. I grabbed it for £61.75 on Amazon months ago, they're now selling it for £100. :lol:

I've just discovered the Spider-Man rock opera album from the 70's it's incredible



Best song I've heard all year

I've pretty much given up any hope of buying Marvel's omnibuses, the artificial scarcity and pricing is awful

Yeah I can't be strawberry floated with them any more. If you don't preorder on Amazon then the price can almost double when it's actually released, then it goes out of stock forever about two weeks later because Marvel only made a stupidly small number and they never do second print runs apart from a tiny handful of titles like Alias (which doubled in price and quickly sold out)

Speaking of Alias, Jessica Jones #1 - Bendis has split up Luke and Jessica and their baby has gone missing. No thank you. Dropped.

Dear god Marvel is such a strawberry float up with X-men/Inhumans atm

I had very low expectations for the the who "What Scott did"/"Death of X" thing but this plummed new lows of stupidity

So a) real Cyclops dies of a migraine ages ago.

b) Fake Cyclops projected by Emma turns one of the Terrigen mist clouds into a harmless gas.
Inhuman's get mad at this and execute him.
World loves Inhumans?
Cyclops gets remembers as one of the worst criminals in history?


Their "designated villain" gooseberry fool with Scott just reached new levels of galling...

He's been dead since DoX #1 when he came into contact with the cloud and collapsed

Image

Everything since then (including the villianous act of stopping a poisonous cloud :P) has been Emma trying to make sure his death had meaning.

Death of X #4- I don't know what this is.

So why does the world hate Cyclops then? So much so that he's being called Hitler in Champions?

By the end of Bendis' run he was loved. By the end of Death of X the world thinks he was murdered by Black Bolt after neutralizing a cloud of toxic gas.


This book was a mess and Cyclops was right. The one thing I've learned from this is that the Inhuman Royal Family are psychopaths.

Slott said in an interview that The Jackal has been Reilly since Spider-Island. Not sure that works.
