Marvel Comics: The CB Cebulski Generation Begins!


#2872

That’s incredible. 4 mini-series from a 1 shot. Looks like they are trying to go down the old Annihilation road.
I just don’t have the disposable income to justify buying into these limited series.
Wolverine is currently popping up 1 page a month at a time not really up to much.
THE HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: ALPHA #1 had best be spectacular and or returnable because I just cannot see people preordering any of these mini-series.
I’m sure people will pick them up from the shelves but I think aside from insights such as
action/adventure (Adamantium Agenda)
horror (Claws of the Killer)
dark romance (Mystery in Madripoor)
noir/detective (Weapon Lost.)

Nothing here really moves the dial for me personally and readers need a hell of a hook to go all in on this.

Would be interested to see what the store owners think and what the purchase requirements are.


#2873

That was happening to me, too.


#2874

I agree. I might have been up for a single mini or a beginning story in an ongoing. I really liked the Wolverine part of Marvel Legacy and his one page guest spot at the end of the last issue of Captain America. This just seems like flogging a dead horse.


#2875

Marvel not learning anything from the complaints of the last few years.

It’s never ending.


#2876

On the same day DC announce the end of their current Superman runs with two specials, Marvel go for the biggest attempted money drain via the return of Wolverine.

Do they have no awareness of how this looks?


#2877

My guess is “no”.


#2878

To be fair, Wolverine has been “dead” for 3 years now. A 17 issue event is barely a 10th of the number of titles he would have starred/ co-starred in over that time. Think of all the money you’ve saved. Don’t you feel lucky now?


#2879

My guess is “no”.


#2880

He hasn’t been dead though. Old Man Logan is basically the exact same character, only slightly grumpier.


#2881

It’s the same people working there who got them into this mess in the first place. Marvel’s going to need much bigger surgery to turn things around I suspect.


#2882

But, but, but, he’s a completely different character … :wink:

Edit: I actually like OML. I fear his time in the limelight will soon be over, although I do look forward to the eventual Wolverine vs Old Man Logan mini-series. And its sequel, Wolverine vs Old Man Logan vs All New Wolverine.


#2883

I’m still struggling to believe that Old Man Hawkeye is an actual comic.
Twelve issues long when the original OML was eight or nine. Crazy.


#2884

I just keep thinking it’s an adaptation of the last couple of series of M * A * S * H


#2885

If nothing else, it’ll look good with Checchetto on it.


#2886

Wolverine has been away?


#2887

For years, man. Years!


#2888

He still hangin’ with Alpha Flight?


#2889

M * A * S * H is the perfect example of what war does to a body. Over the 3 years the Korean War lasted, Hawkeye appeared to age 11 years!

It’s like reverse Marvel time :thinking:


#2890

I don’t want them to fail because of the bigger ramifications for the industry, but they make it very hard to be on their side.


#2891
