Marvel Comics: The CB Cebulski Generation Begins!


#2666

Coates is taking over Captain America???


#2667

bleeding cool rumour before legacy sooo make of that what you will.


#2668

Ah.


#2669

Waid/Samnee only did 12 issues of Black Widow; I could see this being something similar.


#2670

I would be fine with that especially if they have time to tell their story. 12 issues is hardly a fill-in.

Like I hinted before, they’ve already redeemed him from Secret Empire in 3 issues.


#2671

12 issues is hardly a fill in?!

I remember the days when 12 issues was a maxi-series.

Everyone’s got commitment issues these days.


#2672

It’s been a looooooooong time since 12 issues wasn’t a significant run. :wink:


#2673

You calling me Meadows, Ronnie? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#2674

Yep. You have to decide whether it’s a compliment or insult in this instance. :wink:


#2675

This is a long Twitter post by retailer, Nick Rowe about his experiences with Marvel ordering. It’s an interesting take.


#2676

Wow. I get frustrated just reading that. What he says about their attitude to trades is just bonkers.


#2677

I have to agree with everything he says. Marvels attitude has stunk really badly over the last few years. I’ve cut back my ordering because of the constant reboots (I barely up an order for a relaunch these days) and Marvels trade policy is horribly cynical. If the industry dies it will be Marvel that kills it. If you guys saw the ridiculous “incentive” levels you’d see why a number of retailers don’t even bother.

There’s Capitalism, and making a buck, and then there’s ripping people off and blaming the guy lower down the chain (retailers and customers) for sales slumps.


#2678

Other than that I would say the Axel Alonso tenure was a success.


#2679

#2680

I’m perfectly fine with the sliding timeline as long as they are good stories. In fact, I think it works better than having everything start in the 60’s. I kinda like that Reed and Doom are about my age now though.


#2681

The sliding timeline is the only one that makes sense and you just have to ignore that Peter Parker met the Beatles, Xavier fought in the Korean war or Wolfsbane was a massive fan of Tom Selleck and Magnum PI when she was 13.

You can reboot all the time but as DC have show they are always too scared to go through with it completely. Just manage it as well as you can and wave away the rest.


#2682

And Kitty Pryde dressed like this around 10-12 years ago:


#2683

There’s a lot of that with the X-Men, especially under the JRJr era where he was really into 80s fashion.


#2684

Wait a few years and it’ll all be back in fashion again.


#2685

Ya. I kind of prefer this method where it’s not a big deal and they don’t feel the need to overly explain it or publish a distinct timeline. They just did something similar with Captain America that reset when he came out of the ice.
