COMICS!!! |OT| July 2017 | Princess, I've Seen the Way You Look At Me.

11 Issues until 800 then. I have the feeling that this may be the hopping off point for Slott.

At least they dont include Renew Your Vowes, like people on Reddit expected.
They did.

I wouldn't be surprised if he hopped off around them when they start bringing in new creative teams on books, but who knows with him.
 
Aaah, went to the archery range, then had some nice chicken and waffles for lunch. Now for some Batman Zero Hour followed by sleep. I love long lazy weekends.

I'm jealous.

What a bunch of idiots. This makes zero sense. I can see it with Superior, but what has Renew Your Vowes to with that book?
I would assume they just counted everything "main book" Slott wrote.
 
I wonder who from the X-Men will be returning during Legacy. There are quite a few popular members dead with Wolverine being at the top of the list obviously.
 
Just read the beginning of the Tangled Web Omnibus.
Damn, what a great start, and the whole concept of the book as a Series of One Shots looks like perfect to me
 
the decades these old guy spend alone at the drawing table leave them spectacularly out of touch and this Chaykin thing is another example of how comics rots brains
 
I read the Amazing Screw-on Head today, it was a lot of fun. The main story was basically Mignola doing an Atomic Robo style story about a robot crime fighter who works for the president. The rest of the book was a collection of short stories, they were all good. Although I'm positive I've read the Wizard and the Snake story somewhere else before.
 
OK, so after reading the statement and finally seeing the cover is it wrong that I don't see what the huge fuss is about? This comic is about America's current attitude towards foreigners and their culture. Maybe I'm missing the point there, I don't know.

Surely this isn't the worst/most offensive cover in the history of comics.
 
I feel like I shouldn't really be commenting on this, as I don't know the artist, I don't know the history behind this book, etc. However, my interest was piqued, so I thought I'd have a look. Based purely off what Image's statement said about the book and what I've seen of the cover, and the other covers released for this title, it seems to fit the theme.

I see it as a call back to how America used lynch and hang black people?

"Used to"? They still do.

The first issue caused this. During pride month. It also had a pride variant.

OK, I don't know enough about this book, writer/artist to understand what's going on here. I certainly don't know enough about transgender people and the issues they have within society to understand or comment on this any further. These are all touchy subjects for everyone involved. My initial thought was this is an artist making a statement through their art. I have no idea if he has an agenda or not. I see what they were trying to achieve though and don't really understand the backlash after that.

I'm going back to Marvel Unlimited where the only things I have to worry about are the Roy Thomas word count, and if Aunt May's weak condition will finally get the better of her.
 
I don't know, this one might actually be. I'm not personally offended by it, but I think Chaykin tends to gravitate toward books where he can draw shock-value content because that's what he gets off on.
All I know him from is that book he worked with Fraction on. Satellite Sam? And drawing schlocky noir pornography.
 
Man, New Super-Man Volume 1 was a ton of fun.

Don't have much to say about it past that, mind. This isn't a book with big sweeping messages or mindblowing commentary, despite the definite political tinge to it. That might be down to my own ignorance of Chinese politics, though. There's a strong family component to the first volume that provides most of the emotional center, but past that it's more about a suite of reasonably strong characters bouncing off each other in entertaining ways.

Definitely in for more of that.

It stays really good too. It's a shame it flies so far under the radar.
