Sounds like another great non-Hickman event from Marvel!

Unworthy Thor has been really good it's a shame it's just a mini-series, think the last issue is out in a few weeks and that's going to reveal what Nick Fury whispered to him in Original Sin to make him unworthy.

Unless the reveal is amazing it's going to be anticlimactic given they've dragged that out for three years. At least DC's disappointing reveal of who Fake Clark Kent is was done in less than a year.

Apart from Black Panther, I could see me strawberry floating off Marvel completely if the next relaunch is as bad as their last one :dread: Their relentless push of Carol Danvers has almost killed my interest in Ultimates and it's only going to get worse the closer it gets to her (undeserved) movie.

Going by the rumours Bleeding Cool keep posting, all the proper characters are coming back in their main books and twats like Amadeus Cho Hulk are strawberry floating off to their own separate books. Took them long enough to realise it was affecting their sales.


:lol:

Quickest relaunch ever? :lol: If they're going back to the status quo so soon there must be utter panic at the reception to DC Rebirth which has been generally very positive. That Clark Kent reveal aside the Superman books (Superman in particular) have been strong and The Flintstones is far better than it has any right to be.

I liked Carol, I have actual copies of almost all the Ms Marvel books but the character has been on a steep decline ever since they made her Captain Marvel and started pushing her as a major character.

She was absolutely fine and actually likeable as Ms Marvel. Everything since has just been so forced because Marvel were so desperate to have their own Wonder Woman and it hasn't worked at all. Her solo series (which has been relaunched around 3 or 4 times over the past few years) actually sells pretty poorly but has zero chance of getting cancelled whereas other, better books doing similar numbers have

Wait, so are they going back to the likes of Tony Stark as Iron-Man etc..? What about changes like Peter Parker having his own company, they getting rid of that too?

They've not confirmed anything AFAIK - but I think that kind of thing is the general idea.

That's a shame - shitty Ben Reilly reveal and evil Black Cat aside I've been enjoying the direction they've taken Spider-Man in since Superior ended.

Spiderman it sounds like they might keep one book as it's been, and one "back to basics" (how they'll explain that different conflicting worlds I don't know)

Perhaps that Scarlet Spider book will come into play?

Only just started to read the new Marvel Star Wars comics, and been extremely impressed with Star Wars, Darth Vader and the Lando mini series. So very excited to hear that they're going to be doing a new Vader series set between Revenge of the Sith and a New Hope. I think those periods between trilogies are probably the most exciting. There's only so much they can do set between any two single movies and have it make sense.

They claim it was damaged during transit. Hmm. Coincidentally it's nearly doubled in price on Amazon since I bought it.

Yeah so if you've got an issue with Amazon always call up their customer services number, never do their online chat thing. When they told me my order had been cancelled without my permission, online chat just referred me to a third party seller who was selling the book slightly cheaper. I went with that as it was cheaper but the third party seller gave me the same line about their stock being damaged and I'd have to wait a few weeks.

Weeks pass and they still don't have stock but Amazon does at a higher price than what I originally paid. Called up Amazon customer service who agreed to refund me the price difference between the current price of the omnibus and what I originally pre-ordered it for. Amazon Prime means it will arrive tomorrow.

I have just looked at an issue of Previews and see DC comics have new numbers again. Has it been rebooted again since the Synder/Morrison run on Batman?

However Detective Comics has the original numbers?

No wonder I stick to Image stuff with all the DC/Marvel reboots.

Any folks in Glasgow area should get along to the Frank Quietly - Art of Comics exhibition at Kelvingrove Museum, only £7 and on until October 1st.

Huge collection of Superman, Batman, X-Men, Jupiters Legacy etc sketches, artworks, stories and even sections about folk he works closely with like Morrison and Millar. Thought I had a rough idea about the art process for comics, so much more detailed than I thought, the guys practically a genius putting all that together. Definitely going again before it finishes.

There hasn't been a reboot, some continuity (mostly Superman stuff) has been realigned as part of the ongoing Rebirth storyline. Action Comics and Detective Comics have kept their legacy numbering.

I've got zero interest in the event and none of the three Marvel books I buy have tie-ins anyway but the whole think sounds completely ridiculous. No idea what they are thinking with the promo stuff, and sites rebranding themselves with Hydra stuff is just plain silly :lol:
