    While I never understand why people spend so much time talking about comics and or creatives they don't like, when there are so many other comics, new and old, they could be enthusiastic about, it...
  2. I think that depends what you mean by...

    I think that depends what you mean by ‘seriously’. Postmodernism is serious business but it is inherently playful and not actually serious. So yes by including psychology they were introducing a...

    I think this thesis is seriously flawed. The main problem being that until the last decade or so most of the people writing the history of comics were comic fans or close to the industry. A very...

    You may have noticed that J&H wasn’t about a guy who fought for the little guy or got angry about things that were wrong in society. J&H is dark, Hulk Smash is about anger. Most often righteous...

    You are twisting the content to make it sound dark. The Hulk wasn’t dark because it was clearly heightened and not particularly serious. The elements of his stories always contained light and shade....

    I get what you are saying but it is not necessary at all. Most of them are not broken so why fix them? Champions continues to be popular enough to survive. Sure, it goes through reboot cycles but so...

    I suspect it is too late. The older fans rejected the shift towards a cast sprinkled with newer less cynical, less tragic, younger characters.

    I approve of the sentiment to remove the darkness, and I felt that Hickman was setting the pieces up specifically to do this. That wouldn’t have required a reboot though. All that would have taken...

    Indeed, however I suspect it is a nod to more than the single line. One of Howard’s great strengths was the way he sprinkled in evocative single references. He was clearly providing a sense that the...

    I am just going with the 'feels' part of the thread title.
    Didn't 41 feel f'ing great!

    I belive Marvel are sometimes committed to doing this on a case per case basis. The problem is that we get shifts in thinking and new EICs which can suddenly cause everything to be put back in place....

    They kind of did. Secret Wars folded in a number of characters from other realities and provided a built-in reason for lesser dead characters to suddenly be alive or revert to their standard default...

    And that partly explains why we don't always see eye to eye on these things. We have different underlying expectations from the writers.

    I think it can also be argued, and Bendis seemed to take this tack, that this drive towards greatness has been a part of her arc ever since, and that even her position in CWII is entirely consistent...

    The controversy I was referring to is that Shooter, Layton & Pérez do get writing credit on #200 as plotters:

    It isn't as if this was normal. Shooter wasn't in the credits between #177...

    With the rise of Line Webtoons this is even more challenging. I have some fascinating stories to read that will be delivered regularly and not cost me anything other than my time. And I am 51, and...

    Yep to me you do. I was hoping at least somebody would shout out and say this.

    I am sure you would agree this is a very slow and gradual change, and that his core values don’t really change so much as his outlook and his role changes.

    I have nothing whatsoever to go on so...

    Surely you appreciate that this is a controversial issue. Just because Shooter says he has no idea why he gets a writer credit on the book, and can’t remember plotting it, doesn’t mean he didn’t plot...

    Bear in mind I am not calling a fictional character xenophobic, I am referring to the position Aaron has placed him. He has positioned him as an unknowable other. A threat from a huge and mostly...

    Sorry this argument makes no sense. Tarzan is a pulp hero. He’s an englishman in an exotic location bringing his inate superiority to Africa even though he is not educated.

    Like I said. Pulp Hero. Pulp heroes basically travelled to exotic places and proved how superior they were. That’s just what they do. Over and over again. We still put up with this nonsense, see the...
