  1. Marvel's One World Order

    Just gone through a big collection of Ross and Kruegar's Earth X. Rather a fun read, which is surprising as huge chunks of it seem to have folded into the mainstream Marvel U since, generally to less readable effect. It's pretty funny to see that all of this "Inhumans are way more awesome than crappy mutants, so there!" stuff started off in a futuristic dystopia story, and was treated as a bad thing until Marvel failed to get the film rights to the X Men back from Sony and spent the next decade throwing a tantrum over that...

    Just the Wildstorm.

    He changed his name for religious reasons or something, didn't he?
  4. Swamp Thing Returns To Live Action TV

    They'll have to have the telly series running for a long while before they bring General Sunderland's daughter into it. ;)

    I'd have expected you to be more of a Heather Locklear man, Christian.
  6. Marvel's One World Order

    Depressing, but not surprising. Is anything from any of the Marvel Knights series still continuity apart from The Punisher now being a first gulf war veteran rather than a Vietnam veteran?
  7. Marvel's One World Order

    To be honest, I've not read any of the new Ms Marvel comics, so I didn't know she was part of that nonsense. Have any of the newer lot from the moon in that McKeever series been seen since the new approach started?
  8. Marvel's One World Order

    Does that mean they'll bump off all of the not-really-proper-inhumans-but-sorta-kinda-vaguely-inhumanish sorts they have avoiding terrigan mists all over the place at the moment as well?
  9. The Hellblazer #16 and beyond

    That's a nice page.

    There's a few stray issues in the first Essential Man-Thing, and I wouldn't be surprised if they've lumped other bits and pieces in other collections in the same way. It's weird, really: you'd think they'd have collected the Mark Waid issues and the Bruce Jones run at least.

    To be honest, I'm a bit surprised they haven't included any of that in the Black Panther collections.

    I've noticed. Priest did one storyline, introducing Ross, and involving T'Challa, then left to concentrate on Black Panther leaving somebody else to wrap up the Ka-Zar series. I think they put his story in there purely as a teaser for Black Panther, as Ka-Zar was getting very good reviews while Waid was writing it.

    The spacehopper won't accept responsibility for stuff he has done, Lou: no way he'll carry the can for that one.

    Have you read the late '90s Ka-Zar comic, John? Priest wrote that one for a while (taking over from Mark Waid), and the four or five issues he did were pretty much a test run for his take on Black Panther. I'm pretty sure that's where Everett Ross first appeared.

    My guess would be "everything", Lou?

    Click the link again and it'll try to sell you something different: I've just got three different pages in a row.
  17. Marvel's One World Order

    And there was me thinking I was joking about the Spiderman thing...
  18. Marvel's One World Order

    Have they told him that Spiderman appears in neither book?
  19. Marvel's One World Order

    I thought Slott had been announced on Iron Man?
  20. Other comics we read recently

    I think you're mistaken: the two latter events are both clearly Dan Brown's fault. (Or perhaps just the first is Dan Brown and the second is EL James' work...)
  21. Other comics we read recently

    I'd certainly place more of the blame for it on Miller than I would on Brad Meltzer: generally the person who wrote most of something is more culpable for the stuff that's wrong with it than somebody else who didn't write any of it.

    The Priest Black Panther is great fun, so it's nice to see Marvel acknowledging that it exists.
  23. Other comics we read recently

    That may well be true, but it doesn't alter the fact that blaming the way Marvel fucked itself up on Brad Meltzer rather than Mark Millar is ridiculous bullshit.
  24. Other comics we read recently

    That's on Marvel rather than DC or Meltzer, though.
  25. Other comics we read recently

    Finally got around to reading Meltzer and Morales' Identity Crisis, and I'm not sure that it's quite as reprehensible and foul a comic as its reputation implies. The Alan Moore scene is gratuitous, and the final revelation is mind-numbingly daft (though I might be able to take it more seriously if Ambush Bug: Year None hadn't spoilered it) but it still works quite well as a story.
