"I'm going to pass on Flash Forward. Big Flash fan, loved the Post-Crisis Wally West series, but I haven't liked anything I've ever read by Lobdell. If Shaner was doing interiors and not covers, that might sway…"
"What I get a kick out of is that he's not quoting Hulk from the movies.
He's quoting silver or bronze age comic books. Hulk's well known catch phrase and common situations from his Tales to Astonish run and onward.
"It was revealed after I stopped reading Marvel comprehensively (2010) that Sue Richards had been an agent of SHIELD either in the past or in the present. I don't know, because I didn't read it. So help me with this:
When and were was it…"
"I agree! And there's nothing *wrong* with the series, per se. But I didn't find it compelling enough to pay to read it immediately, when I'm already paying to read it (and all Marvel titles) 6 months down the line. (Few Marvel titles…"
"The Invisible Woman series is decent, but didn't completely grab me; I read the first one, and decided to wait for Marvel Unlimited for the rest. For some reason, the painted art kept me at arm's length. (It reminds me a bit of Phil…"
"Waid had a really good take on the FF a few years back. I'm going to pick up issue #1 this weekend if I can find one.
I'm on the fence about Loki. Feels like treading familiar ground. Don't know anything about…"
"Fun fact: I added that thread over ten years ago, yes, but I was carrying it over from the same thread from the old board, which was also really long, and probably started before my time there.
We’re getting old!"
I may be out of line here but in regards with your exchange with Mark, we both know how he feels about Marvel now. We've both know that his opinion has not and probably will not change though I hope it does. Despite previous advice, I have no doubt that he will continue to comment on how "evil" the Marvel heroes are whenever he can.
However, he has had some medical problems and he has left here before thinking no one wants him here. That's something that I am hoping to avoid. I'm not blaming you for ANYTHING, let me make that clear. I am only trying to prevent another round of the same debate that apparently caused hard feelings before.
You won't change his mind and challenging him about it will only make him defensive, as past interactions show us. If steered clear from the topic of Marvel's Post-Civil War period, he seems happier.
Anyway, that's my two cents. Again I'm not faulting you at all. Merely trying to keep the peace, as they say.
