    I don't have much to say about it. It was a fun romp, but these kind of heavy action issues don't lend themselves to deep analysis. Stuff blowed up real good.

    It was just after that - this one-page strip from Marvel #1001:

    That's a shame, what a waste!

    I agree that Circuit Breaker would be a good character to use for the 2020 series. (And, Marvel owns Circuit Breaker.) But, Circuit Breaker is also too much a part of "Transformers".

    I was actually surprised at how fast things happened. (The the lack of concept development and such left more pages available for action sequences.)

    "2020 Machine Man" #1 ships this week.

    https://www.previewsworld.com/Catalog/DEC190827

    Considering that it is $5(?!?!?!?), that DeFalco back-up had damned well better be extra pages. (I am not expecting the DeFalco thing to be good. But, $5 is going to hurt even more if there are not more pages, especially if the DeFalco pages are at the expense of Gage-written pages.)

    Default Machine Man #1

    Machine Man #1 shipped today. Thoughts?

    Gage's portion was heavy handed. As a riff on the bronze age, it almost works. As anything else, it is just poorly crafted.

    DeFalco is pure bronze age inflection, and does not seem to serve any purpose other than bringing back some forgotten characters.

    Has anyone tried to make sense of the binary code in the ads for some of the 2020 issues?

    It might be nothing. But, I am curious if Marvel has put any Easter Eggs in the code. (I was meaning to play around with it over the weekend.)
