    Am actually pretty into this weekly idea, letting the other monthlies breath for a couple months.

    The line does need a bit of a jolt and I like the idea of having strong bookend stories to open...

    Don’t have the money for a tablet, and Unlimited isn’t available in my country.

    What Marvel news is this? Please donít tell me I need to buy an iPad in order to enjoy monthly comics now.

    Donít really think this is gonna have much continuity weight outside of Siís next project. Also don't think Onslaught was changed or shoehorned. Heís been in it since issue 2 (so the script had most...

    I think this is the real point of frustration for me that won’t completely drop, even though I’m excited for somebody new to take over Uncanny.

    Every writer drops plots or has to finish things...

    Comic Herald said it best on his YouTube channel, that, from the way Hickman talked on his exit interview, it would be disappointing for him to just move to another monthly. I kinda agree that heíll...

    FF was really good as a self contained run, but you must remember how many plot points were dropped or pushed to a panel at the end of Time Runs Out. This made me skeptical of X-Men when Inferno was...

    I’ve said this many times before, and dipped in and out of the forum during that time on old accounts, but did you read Avengers/NA monthly? Maybe it was better in trade, but everything Hickman was...

    I mostly agree with these and actually worry a bit for the line if it is continuing the story without redefining the era/direction.

    Marvel does no. 1 issue gimmicks because they know that readers...

    Bloody hell !

    Would have much rather had Hickman write his three act story compared to more years of pretty good but mostly unambitious titles.

    Let’s hope they give Ewing or Spurrier Uncanny...

    Listening to the podcast, it’s kinda crazy how much she’s letting loose. Even Ales Kot kept pretty zipped after he left the big two.

    I hate to think how Marvel PR is thinking on this and hope she...

    Feel bad for her obviously. That X of Swords issue was the only thing I’ve read from her, but man that issue had some of the worst dialogue I have read in a comic since I was a kid. Read one of the...

    Marvel should definitely give Ewing something like Uncanny and allow him to move his SWORD plot threads over to a flagship book.

    I don’t know about digital, but the print numbers look sad for...

    Really hoping this is not the end for Hickman. If it ends with Inferno, I his whole run will feel pretty cheap to me.

    His Avengers run (maybe it’s better reading it in trades) was rushed as hell...

    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 not specifically replying to you, but to the debate in general. I think you are pretty much right on this front, and as an "ardent left-winger" who finds their politics through reading,...

    Thought this was fun. Definitely gave me a very Whedon Astonishing feel to it.

    Excited to have a bit of widescreen action, and from the way this and Planet-Size felt, Duggan is smart enough as a...

    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...

    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...
