    Okay, so I just finished Ultraman Ace. This series started with the premise that Ultraman Ace had two hosts, one male and one female, Hokuto and...

    She was more relevant than perhaps any other non-mutant human in the X-Men books. She lasted longer than any of them and made more repeat appearances. I mean, think of all the human supporting cast...

    They should wipe the decks of the "classic" X-Men characters for a while and just have a main team made up of the younger characters for a while. A mix of the New Mutants, Generation X and New X-Men...

    I think it's going to depend on whether or not the results Tsubaraya's getting are the kind of thing they'd want from Kamen Rider. I mean, Tsubaraya's been trying to make an international thing out...

    I'm saying maybe just ditch the 22-page mags and only make graphic novels. Everything gets collected in TPBs eventually anyway. It works for comics aimed at kids (see the various Raina Telgemeier...

    Going back to this point after the thread has left it, but with manga diversity would be a whole different thing than in America. Even if a mangaka were aiming at having a diverse cast, it would...

    That is pretty nice.

    One of the ironies of the X-Men is that they have one of the most diverse extended collections of characters around, yet have this bizarre glass ceiling because the majority...

    He does that all the time in the American comics. Let him relax and have some takoyaki for once.

    I'll have to wait and see.
