    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...

    The new Adam Curtis documentary series ĎCanít get you out of my headí paints a very good picture of this classist British psyche - one that has structured its moral goodness or properness off the...

    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.

    Also, regarding people being annoyed about the vault crew being lethal - the children blew up their elevator !

    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.

    Those Opena opening three issues were incredible, but Deodato drew so many issues of Avengers and they were the absolute worst.

    That’s what I’m hoping. Or maybe bringing back New X-Men.

    I just feel if Hickman builds a new X-team and ignores the team half the time to deal with the Summers family on the moon, a big section...

    He was writing at least 3 issues a month during that era with 4 when Infinity was in play. I genuinely think that effected the quality of his Avengers run because the art suffered and Hickman’s story...
