Felt similarly to the end of his Fantastic Four run but that was at least a little shorter.
I think I’m a bit burnt out on crossover stuff from all that so I’m looking for more standalone titles/runs, maybe good DC stuff.
Oh, anyone have specific Daredevil recommendations? I have the first volume of Mark Waid's run from Amazon Prime but was wondering if there was anything that is close to the TV series?
That's the first time I've heard that about Hickman's run.
Some quick recs off the top of my head:
The Black Mirror by Snyder Gotham Central 52 The first two issues of King's Mr Miracle have been fantastic. All Star Superman Superman Rebirth
Daredevil Bendis' entire run Brubaker's entire run
In fairness it's something I've felt with a lot of comic book storylines, copious amounts of build up with rushed, unsatisfying endings. It was great up to the end of Infinity but went downhill after that for me.
Cheers for the recommendations, especially Gotham Central as I've been meaning to read that for years but completely forgot its existence.
I would have left. I’m not naive; I know all collaborations involve compromise, ideological or otherwise. But everybody has their own red lines, and bespoke recruitment paraphernalia for combat drone manufacturers–under the fantastically cynical guise of encouraging kids to get into STEM careers–is my red line and then some.
So I stayed up until about 2:30am last night looking at my schedule and trying to figure out a timeline to extricate myself without screwing over the incredible editors and co-creators I work with.
Thankfully, I haven’t needed to run with it, as it seems as though sanity has prevailed and the project has been canned, at least for now.
Seems they announced strawberry float all at the convention other than a Weapon H solo series (WHO GIVES A strawberry float) and a comic starring the Weeknd as a superhero(?!) They basically confirmed Professor X is coming back next year too, continuing their crusade to piss off X-Men fans and bring back everyone apart from Cyclops.
