She subsequently rips off Iron Man's head and beats Spider-Man to death with a rock.

Valiant seem to think otherwise, as in both this and the webseries he's played by a wrestler (John Morrison/Johnny Mundo in the latter).

The hardcover has coated matte paper. The latest softcover that includes the full story LIKELY has the same paper. A few people dont like this paper stock but I ADORE it. Colors pop in it like crazy, it's thicker than regular paper, and it not as reflective as glossy.

So on a lark I picked up all of Uber in that Avatar CMX sale (I like Gillen's other stuff and people seem to like it well enough online).

Man, I don't know if it's actually a great comic or not, but it's got me in that "okay.... one more issue then i'll stop...... okay, now really one more issue then i'll stop......... this time I really mean it.... last issue for the night" loop where it's really hard to stop reading. dig the "clinical history" textboxes that are written as if they are covering the events you are seeing in a historical documentary. I dig the "what if we treated superpowered soldiers basically tanks and machinery rather than people" aspect of it too. It's not bad!

(caveat, i'm sort of a sucker for WW2 stuff in general anyway)

Been getting back into comics in a big way lately and I have some questions for comic-gaf:

1. What the fuck is up with these Marvel Jim Lee covers? I guess they look cool if you have never seen them... but I HAVE all these card sets. Its just old art blown up. Its really odd and disconcerting to me.

2. Does ComicGaf love East of West of much as I do? Ive been collecting the trades, even during my hiatus, and its awesome. I never see anyone talking about it.

3. Why are Marvel trades so much more expensive then DC trades?

4. Is Generations some kind of big story, or are they just a series of one shots?

5. I randomly grabbed Secret Empire #7 without reading the rest of the event. Big mistake. What the fuck is going on? The art is nice tho.

6. Is Bachalo currently the regular artist on anything at all these days?

7. I just read Final Crisis and it is so so so awesome. Morrison is the greatest. Is there an agreed upon "best" annotations somewhere on the 'net?

8. What is Young Animal? A new DC imprint? Is Way's Doom Patrol as good as Umbrella Academy was?

9. I was looking at some of the giant mega omnibuses when I was at Midtown today.. Like Morrisons Doom Patrol, and Age of Apocalypse. Is it hard to read the actual material? It seems like it would be to me.

10. Way back when I was super into comics, I remember DC editorial being obsessed with Kingdom Come and its continuity. Now you don't see ANYTHING from it at all ever. In in, like, Crisis stuff that brings beings together from all sorts of DC realities and universes. Now it seems to be Watchmen.

I think thats it for now. Thanks in advance comicsgaf.

Marvel really feel like they're running out of variant covers themes recently(probably because there've been tons over the last years)and this is just sad since I think Lee gets not a single penny from them just reusing his old work.

Yup, August 1992 was when she made her first appearance.

And yeah the covers from Dustin Ngugyen are probably the best out of the bunch really. That cover for the last issue is really good, and a nice fit for the end.

That said, I still like this quite a bit from Artgerm

1. they're throwing shit at the wall to see what sticks
2. they like it, yes!
3. great question...
5. everyone hates SE
6. No, but he's doing an arc of Spider-Man/Deadpool in the fall
7. I think it's this one
8. imprint overseen by Gerard Way, all the books have been generally solid. Never read UE but Doom Patrol is great
9. No but some of these things can really only be read on a flat surface. Some shittier ones used to use glued binding which made them tough to read, but they rarely have that problem anymore

Huh, always assumed she'd debuted in the early 2000s or something

I do like his stuff for that series, even though i don't generally dig Artgerm

Oof, this Marvel Generations sale just did some damage. I stopped reading comics near the end of the first wave of Marvel NOW stuff so I got the last few issues of Thor (plus the first two vols of Lady Thor), All-New X-Men, and Wolvie & the X-Men. Now I'm kinda wishing that I had filled in the rest of my Uncanny Avengers collection yesterday.

Also picked up the first three issues of Jean Grey since I read a few people on here like it.

Jim Lee's X-Men stuff is popular and it's not like he can create new stuff for them.

I apologize for tooting my own horn, but my comic book, The Gamma Gals, releases its trade paperback on August 30th.

It's available physically through Fanbase Press, and digitally, through comixology.

http://www.fanbasepress.com/index.ph...the-gamma-gals

I apologize again, but I'm just so damn excited for it. It's a lighthearted, all ages book that I've been working on since 2013, and it feels good to have all 6 issues wrapped up finally. The paperback is roughly 150 pages, written, illustrated, and lettered by yours truly! Last week I was finally able to hold the proof in my hands and flip through the pages, and it felt so amazing. The blood, sweat, tears, and sleepness nights were so worth it.

And that's some solid casting. I'm always entertained by McShane. Can't think of anything I've seen him in that wasn't a fun performance by him.


Lol. Those how to draw are awesome. I think I need to pick those issues up.

Judge Dredd's Mega City 1 is really in the USA? I assumed since it's a Birtish comic, Mega City 1 was somewhere in the UK and would read his dialog in a British accent.

The other info about what happens later is...kinda funny.

Also I find it hilarious that she and Thanos have the same err crotch guard :V

Just looked at some preview pages, and yeah, that looks real slick. I will definitely give it a read at some point. I'm clearing out my backlog bit by bit.

EDIT: Dude, it's on sale for $6.99 on comixology. Fuck it. Bought. Will add it to the pile.
