  2. Other comics we read recently

    I'm not sure. Milligan has had a number of bad comics in his time, but most of those comics include company-owned properties (which is where HB would fall). Otherwise, I've enjoyed pretty much everything that Milligan has written. It's not totally Bond's fault either. After all, she was also editor with Milligan on Shade, which was one of his best series. So, just because Bond allowed Milligan to get away with a lot of bad ideas on HB, it doesn't mean that the two haven't worked together on projects that turned out much better. Like I said, I'm willing to give Milligan another chance on Kid Lobotomy. I do think that a lot of the superfluous elements running through the book were supposed to be Milligan throwing in as many cues to Shade as possible. I'm guessing trying to grip readers by saying, "Remember how great Shade was? I bet this book can be just as great! Give it a chance!". So, he'll move away from that and start to tell a more coherent story. Eh, it's not as if there are that many interesting comics being published right now. Marvel and DC are in the doldrums and seemingly only sinking more with each attempt as a "new big direction!", Vertigo is dead, and even Dark Horse doesn't have much of interest in 2017. Morrison isn't that active now. Image is about the only comic publisher willing to do anything interesting with the form, and that's if the creators decide they want to actually finish any of the book they're working on. So, it's not as if I don't have time to give a chance to something like Kid Lobotomy, and can just drop it if it doesn't end up working.

    Here's an interview I did with DeMatteis many years ago about his Ghost Rider run. I'll say it again, guy was so genuine and appreciative to talk about work he did 20 years ago (at that time). My goal is to get him on the podcast at some point as well, I'll squee like a fangirl in heat if that happens. Vengeance Unbound - J.M. DeMatteis Interview

    I don't think Milligan WILL pare down his ideas into something coherent, mainly because he has an editor (Shelly Bond) who doesn't want to step in and filter out the nonsense. She was his editor on Hellblazer, after all, and I think had there been someone with a bit firmer hand to go "c'mon Pete, you can do better than this" that run would have turned out much better. Ditto for Kid Lobotomy, which managed to take that rather basic plot that you jotted down Christian and turned it into the most obtuse comic I've read recently. You are right about Morrison taking the same approach, fuck look at something like Nameless as an example, but I never get the sense that he loses his way in the narrative while throwing out all the random ass ideas. I don't have the same confidence in Milligan.

  10. Other comics we read recently

    The Multiversity series as a whole, yes. You'll notice I said "some issues of Multiversity", not Multiversity as a series. I'm thinking of the first issue of the book (Multiversity #1), where Morrison just seemed to throw a bunch of random ideas in to the story, going at a mile a second. There's certainly a coherent plot hiding beneath the chaos of Milligan's Kid Lobotomy. I was making the comparison more to the fact that Morrison would throw random ideas at the page and then boil the story down to something more tightly structured as the series went along. Compare that to Morrison's less ambitious projects (such as Klaus) where Morrison only uses one real idea and shapes up a linear plot, with one barebones cohesive narrative. At its heart, Kid Lobotomy is the story of a failed son of a very rich, judgmental man who is getting his chance to make his father proud by being given the chance to make his father's hotel in to something profitable, while his scheming sister thinks that she deserves this opportunity and will do what she can to derail any of her bother's chances to have success. The hotel has deep sentimental attachment to the main character, due to his childhood memories. Mix in the backstory of said brother having mental health issues in the past and undergoing a radical new type of therapy, and his dealing with this as he attempts to run this hotel. Imagine that plot being written by William S. Burroughs, where there is a ton of other stuff being thrown at the page, and that's Kid Lobotomy. The main plot isn't all that interesting, by itself. I expect to see Milligan pare down his ideas in to something coherent and more tightly structured as the series goes on.
  11. Other comics we read recently

    Oh, come off it, Christian. Multiversity was a very tightly structured narrative, it just wasn't structured around a linear plot.
  12. Other comics we read recently

    I'd say Morrison still does it quite a bit, and some of that work is the better for it. Some of his better structured work doesn't really stand out as being all that great....Klaus, Avatarex, Joe the Barbarian, Wonder Woman (off the top of my head).... I was disappointed by all of the above, because they read like they were written by writers other than Morrison. Meanwhile, things like Superman Beyond or some of the issues of Multiversity had the same insanity to his earlier work, and they stand out as better reading experiences than his more clearly plotted out books.
  13. Other comics we read recently

    I thought he'd stopped doing that twenty odd years ago and his stuff has been a lot more structured and plotted out since the late '90s?
  14. Marvel's One World Order

    In fact he is, but he tries to keep quiet about that. His family insisted that he change his name when he went into writing comics rather than a respectable field like stand up comedy. The name on his birth certificate is "Cannock Chase".

  16. Last week
  17. Marvel's One World Order

    Yeah, I was a fan of that run
  18. Marvel's One World Order

    Yep, that was him. His run was from sometimes in the early-1980s.....maybe '83 or '84. I only read it later on though. I had no interest in a character like GR when I was a kid.
  19. Marvel's One World Order

    Did he write the Carnival of Fear stuff and the Centurious stuff?
  20. Marvel's One World Order

    No, I was out of comics for a while and the 90s Vertigo brought me back, so I missed out on a lot and hadn't heard of JM before then
  21. Marvel's One World Order

    ^ That.
  22. Marvel's One World Order

    I really like the tail end of the original series as well, but I think the Danny Ketch series is a lot better than it gets credit for, particularly (as Christian says) when it was obviously doomed to cancellation and the writer (Ivan Velez?) just went as gleefully batshit as he could towards the end.
  23. Marvel's One World Order

    I can't argue with any of your points, in fact I agree with most of them. Ghost Rider IS a problematic character that Marvel doesn't know what to do with, and really never have, that has had just as many low creative points as high ones. I'm a fan of most of the Mackie run on the character, it is by FAR the best work he ever did, but you're dead-accurate about the rest. Fleisher did really well for his first year or so before degenerating into fill-in quality stories near the end, the earlier superhero style stuff by Tony Isabella and Jim Shooter was nothing to write home about either. The Felipe Smith/Tradd Moore series had such promise, with Robbie Reyes as a new Ghost Rider, but even that petered out after the first arc and never really recovered.
  24. Marvel's One World Order

    Yeah, I've read most of the Ghost Rider comics, and I can't really say much about the quality of most of the Ghost Rider comics. I've often found him more of a great idea for a character who often doesn't work well within the stories. Those original issues, with Jesus and Satan, were pretty damn cool. Then, I didn't enjoy the book again until DeMatteis took over (well, yeah,, there was a brief Roger Stern run before DeMatteis that set up the DeMatteis run, which was fine too), and I consider that the high point of the Ghost Rider character. Then, yeah, I can't say that I found Ghost Rider worth reading again until Aaron. After that, it was downhill again, for mine. Even Michael Fleisher, who I would expect to take the book in a direction like he did the Spectre (as the two characters are very similar), couldn't put together an entire run worth reading. The problem with the original series, bar the DeMatteis run, in my estimation, was that creators never knew what to do with Ghost Rider....was he a horror character, was he a superhero, was he simply a supernatural superhero? The creators would tell very bland stories, for the most part, that didn't play up to Rider's strengths. The Danny Ketch series did sort of go a way towards correcting this, by setting GR in a horror setting, but the majority of that series was written by Howard Mackie. Granted, it was the best work Mackie ever managed in comics. It was still over 50 issues of Mackie shaping the character though. Plus, I really like the Johnny Blaze character. Danny Ketch wasn't anywhere near as interesting of a character. So, the second GR series was never going to appeal to me in the same way as I wanted the original series to do (but really only accomplished briefly as the beginning and end of that book). I liked the idea of there being many incarnations of the Ghost Rider spirit, and all the historical additions to the character, with there being a Ghost Rider for every period of history. Aaron really pushed that idea, which was only touched on a few times in the previous Ghost Rider on-going titles (Fleisher hinted at it with the Phantom Rider in the original series, and then the post-Mackie issues fully introduced the idea in the second series, but the book was already headed towards cancelation by that point).
  25. Marvel's One World Order

    Ghost Rider's my boy, I run both a blog AND a podcast about the character. He's had LOTS of great creative teams in his history, but DeMatteis (and Roger Stern before him, I sort of lump them together since they both had Bob Budiansky as artist/co-plotter) was responsible for the character's highest quality run, bar none. Jason Aaron came the closest to matching him, I think.
  26. Marvel's One World Order

    I was pretty sure that you had read more by DeMatteis, Lou. Didn't you also read his run on Ghost Rider? I thought I remembered you agreeing with me that his run on Ghost Rider was the only really quality work on that character. Although, I do have a fondness for the early issues of that series, when Marvel allowed Jesus to be used as a character. A lot of DeMatteis' best work was non-creator owned books (although Seekers would have to stand out as his best, period)....well, considering that he's been writing comics since the early-1980s, and has only had a handful of creator owned books in that time, the majority of his work has been for Marvel or DC properties.
  27. Other comics we read recently

    I'm not seeing a lot more promise from the Black Crown imprint. Kid Lobotomy looked like the best book from the bunch. It's a hyper comic book, to be sure, but I thought there was enough underlying premise worth looking in to that made it worth a second look. I felt he was trying too hard to make people think about different takes he had done on his Shade book. I felt that was a major drawback. I don't know, Grant Morrison's comics are often just him throwing random ideas on the page, and then trying to sort through the wreckage for ideas worth pursuing further. I expected that Milligan would end up going in that direction as the series progresses. It can't keep going at this level of irreverence for an entire series, but I thought there was enough ideas worth pursuing to see if the second issue is an improvement. I'm not seeing anything from Karen Berger's imprint that looks any better either. Even the Anne Nocenti comic (who is usually one of my favourites), I will have zero interest in if it's just another parable about the Donald Trump presidency.
  28. Marvel's One World Order

    I thought you'd read the JLA stuff he cowrote with Giffen as well? If you're taking the line that only creator owned comics are significant, that's all of Hellblazer, Swamp Thing and Sandman out the window, for a start...
  29. Marvel's One World Order

    Truth be told I have only read Seekers, Brooklyn Dreams and Moonshadow so I really have no other reference
