    Having spent some time thinking back over the last 15 years worth of Events and storylines did get me thinking. Secret Invasion and House of M aside much of those years really was an exercise in...

    That I would agree on. GotG was a bit of a mismatch, in my opinion. Was also quite unsure over the redesigns (which seemed to be part Mass Effect inspired with the armour aesthetic). That seemed...

    I think that Disassembled *was* necessary, though. While The Avengers certainly wasn't a sales failure in the late 90s and early 2000s it very much felt like it was a comic book from a different age....

    Don't get me wrong, by and large i genuinely like Bendis' work. He was part of what got me back into reading Marvel in the early 2000s, through Daredevil and New Avengers and Ultimate Spidey in...

    I think the greater source of confusion with Bendis' retelling is that it removes her growing up in Britain. Sure her parents remain British, but her early life is pretty much all Wundagore until...

    You know there are some. And I think a few of us are aware that there are some. But it's so rare hat anybody at Marvel remembers them. I'd be curious to know, too.

    Very early Bryan Hitch, but you can see quality forming in his artwork.

    At times in those days I always felt that you could see an element of Alan Davis in some of his work. Which was no...

    I know that we have on in Britain, but I don't believe that such a body exists for America. I could be wrong.

    Now that Fox is owned by Disney I hope that Pete Wisdom is back on the table. No more of this modelling Lance Hunter on Wisdom.

    I'm not entirely sure that's true. Excalibur's history of development is a curious one. For a start it did not begin as as an X-Men book.

    Claremont very genuinely did, as I understand it, try...

    John's response to the continual phrase of Secret Invasion's invading Skrulls remains a key memory of the event for me.
