    Oh, my bad. I thought the publishers wanted him because his name was selling comics. Silly me.



    I don't attack people on forums (or in real life). Only their opinions, eventually. (And this...

    Same here.

    I really love his work for DC during the 80s. The Night Force and, especially, Nathaniel Dusk, done almost without inking and watercolored directly over the pencils. Regarding his...

    No, I was comparing Eminem to Aesop Rock, with regards to their levels of popularity. It was intended to be used as an argument against the popularity in relation to the perceived quality of their...

    No, you have made a very, very broad claim about any possible critisism of Bendis' work - very broad, indeed! The last sentence in your post proves that. How can I not understand that greatness?

    JKtheMac, my friend, you are assuming too much, as always. You accuse others of simplifying things, and then go on oversimplifying more than the others ever could. I am on this forum only...

    But, I've actually understood that this topic IS about The Avengers written by Bendis, which is a very specific end product, not about Bendis' writing in general (although that would inevitably play...

    I couldn't disagree more. Comics, as a medium, need to transcend their formal components in order to be artistically valid. In other words, synergy is the third, most-important-but-rarely-mentioned...

    I won't deny I like this, but I can't shake off a feeling of irony that they will end up building a Happyland dedicated to Kirby. (For those of you who don't know what that means - that's a reference...

    Sorry, I somehow missed this. I relatively rarely visit this forum. But I'm the last person that should be asked that question. :D I didn't like many Thor comics over the years. I don't even think...

    Come on, people, there is no need for insults here. As someone wise said once, there is no such thing as a bad controversy. And all the adversity against Jane Foster as a Thor only feeds that...

    It's modern America who doubts itself, and the comic Thor only reflects that. And it's one of the reasons I'm not highly invested in it (and modern superhero comics in general*). You see, I am not an...

    In fact, Darkseid had (the) Starlin, for a short amount of time, and thank God (or the Source!), he hasn't be able to retcon anything about him. His version of the New Gods can't be more incompatible...

    No, I don't think Morrison did that or even cared for doing that, but I see many fans believe that story. It's still a mystery to me. :) For example, for Morrison, Metron is Prometheus (among other...

    The first Thomas' run was my very first Thor comics. I don't know about the consensus (although you can find a pretty nice summary here), but the more time passes, the less I like that run. It had...

    This. Among other things. You were addressing something I had never said. So, good faith is not enough, obviously. You twist every argument that goes your way into your own point of view, and get...

    Your perspective, yes, but the one that doesn't involve a multitude of other people's opinions. Unless you want to quote them in detail, and go into their reasoning, pretending it's your own, which...

    Your answer shows me that either you didn't understand what I have said or you didn't want to understand, which, ultimately, amounts to the same result. If something is praised or not means only that...

    You are also driven by nostalgia, my friend, despite your need to believe otherwise. You spend too much of your time on the Marvel boards, for Christ's sake! MARVEL! Not TKO or something...

    Come on, man! This would have been a excellent joke, if only it had been funny. "Letters marching on white paper" would be semantically (or poetically?) true, but armies? Why not say those are the...

    One of the all time greats. I was disappointed he hadn't worked on more fantasy stuff. He was a big fan of the genre, one of the biggest in all the comicdom. He was offered work on Conan the...

    Millar's work from 10 years ago was a joke, and Millar's work nowadays is simply an embarrassment, but I would never view him as 'overrated'. Very few people rate him highly, despite his obvious...

    Man, that panel sequence when Fafnir mesmerizes Lorelei and her mind gets smaller and smaller is a masterpiece of visual storytelling.

    Her appearance was inspired by Debbie Harry. Maybe not from...

    Yeah, this is a mighty good list. But I think Alien was an OGN too.

    I suppose we could say similar things about many other creators, even Kirby. And Starlin did the same thing, for example in Cosmic Odyssey (although it was published by DC), which is The Ultimate...
