Spider-Man gets a shield but Captain America gets an ax?
He’s already got a shield. Why would he need two?
You can never have too many shields.
I looked at that picture. It is a hammer not necessarily THE hammer. I should’ve known when it came from you that the title was clickbait. shame on me.
Can someone recommend me some Chip Zdarsky comics. I just read DD 1 and really liked it. (No Spidey recommendations please. Hate that dude)
Most of his stuff is more comedic than Daredevil, except for his Invaders series which just started. His Star-Lord and Howard the Duck series were fun, and I enjoyed his run on Marvel 2-in-One.
Howard the duck was quite funny, beyond that I havnt enjoyed his writing at all
Marvel Two In One? The Thing/ Human Torch series. I only read the first issue of that, but really enjoyed it.
Bobby I know you said no Spidy but honestly, Spectacular Spider-Man #310 is possibly the best single done in one comic issue I’ve read in the last 15 years.
Chip is on Art and Script here.
If you don’t want to check it out I will send it to you as a gift through comixology.
My missus isn’t a comics fan and she balled her eyes out reading this.
Marvel Two-in-One is fantastic.
His Howard the Duck is a truly brilliant run. Funny, smart and full of emotion. Marvel Two-in-One is good, albeit not great.
This is the weirdest comment I’ve ever read on this board.
Maybe hate is an over exaggeration. I’ve tried to get into Spidey comics on multiple occasions with zero success. Can’t put my finger on what it is that turns me off him and his comics.
However I will check out that spectacular 310 issue.
However, Wolverine rejoining AF could have made sense, story-wise.
It boggles my mind when I read stories of comic book writers receiving death threats. Like, where the hell are your priorities?
You know what, we’re missing an opportunity here - get Twitter to hand over identity information, go after these idiots and fine them.
There’s probably enough of them to make a handy amount of cash and nothing like the thought of losing money because you were dumb enough to send a death threat will deter people from doing this kind of crap.
Over the last couple of years, publishing startup Serial Box has experimented with new ways to tell stories. Today the company is moving into the superhero world with a new partnership with Marvel, which will produce new stories about Black Panther, Black Widow, Jessica Jones, and Thor.
The publisher is best known for long-form, serialized stories called “Serials”, which play out like a season of television. Each season is composed of 10 to 16 individual installments, which take about 40 minutes to read, each one designed to be read on its own, but which also convey a season-long storyline. The similarities to a TV show don’t stop there: instead of individual authors writing a single work on their own, they bring in a writer’s room of writers to produce stories like The Witch Who Came in From the Cold , Ninth Step Station , or The Vela . The stories can be read via the company’s app and website, and are also accompanied by an audio adaptation.
This is Serial Box’s first foray into tie-in fiction, and in a release, CEO Molly Barton says that they’re “thrilled that Marvel is entrusting us to extend and expand the story worlds for these beloved characters.” The stories will be originals based on the characters, but won’t be retellings from the comics or films. The first story out of the gate will be about Thor, and will land sometime this summer. The company says that Aaron Stewart-Ahn, Brian Keene, Jay Edidin, and Yoon Ha Lee will make up the writer’s room for this first serial. Serial Box wouldn’t say if its stories will fit together in its own connected-universe model, or if each season will stand alone.
