    Was a shame they only asked a couple questions. Would have loved to know Duggan’s mindset or pitch for the book, so I could think more about the direction while I wait for issue 2.

    If you're referring to the the way I loosely prefaced my background in the prior post, you shouldn't feel disheartened.

    This choice came from my own conscience, feeling that my comment would be...

    This is also just speculation, but there is a possibility Hickmanís stint on Avengers burned him out from the right planning. So many plot threads from the first half of his main Avengers run just...

    I really think COVID killed the publishing line momentum. The Hellfire Gala was planned to be in December and act as an annual Christmas event each year of this era, and X Swords also changed...

    I missed the boat on Ewing’s Guardians during the first run. Is it worth picking up the latest couple of issues of this new volume? Honestly, those Booth covers are so not my thing so it put me off...

    Maybe Iím remembering it wrong, but I didnít necessarily think that it was Knull that made Magneto reconsider, I thought it was more to do with the alluded conversation Cortez and Mags had in issue...

    About a decade ago, decompressed books would take 6 to 12 issues to get a team together, and then immediately get cancelled. Compared to that, and fine with 3 KIB tie ins which are basically...

    I’m surprised people are complaining about this book.

    This KIB stuff has really just been a frame narrative for a Manifold spotlight and an issue showing off Cortez and Mentallo. If this book...

    I really hope Hickman gets to write the next event for the X-Books rather than it being as much of a collaborative cross-over.

    The tournament really demonstrated that a lot of the other writers...

    I assume that, when the big two assign smaller tier books to creators, they offer them a 12 issue+ (1 year+) contract position, with more issues dependent on the first year. Thatís what seemed to be...

    I think just the Hickman issues will give you a story, though if I remember correctly, Hickman barely touches the actual tournament (the weakest part of the event). So you get a story about Arako and...

    I thought this issue was a pretty cool reason to spend 3 bucks.

    I canít imagine Ellis coming back any time soon. His work was a big influence on me as a teenager, but his actions completely killed that, so I hope he doesnít come back for quite some time.
