if all goes well my favorite comic of all time is not out yet
Which Silver Surfer run?
Why not both? Hulk is one of my favorite comics characters and David's run is one of my favorites. It's rare where I'll buy a physical comic, and this is one of the exceptions.
lol thank you for responding. I wrote all that and felt like I was talking in a vacuum.This is really well said. I don't know that I have a singular favorite era of comics either, but I do have favorite runs from all across the spectrum. Like I have pretty much zero interest in Barry Allen Flash comics outside of the sheer ridiculousness of the Silver Age (the way Barry discovers Earth 2 in the Flash of Two Worlds issue is hilarious). The only era I really don't get into is the Golden Age, otherwise I can read and enjoy comics from any era.
Yeah, that's one I had on my IST wishlist for months back in 2015 or so and then it went out of stock before I had a chance to buy it.
Assuming they come out (lol), I'll get:
I wish one of the other titles could’ve sacrificed themselves instead. Because in concept and characters it should be the best X book.
Well the teases have me interested at the very least, which is more than I can say about any other Marvel event in a long time
Ah. The Mikel Janin method.
i don't watch pretty much any anime anymore, but that looks really good.Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken is a legit great fun show about 3 girls trying to make anime. They have fun adventures and great imaginations. One of them is very tall. It's only 2 episodes so far but I love it.
Here's a trailer. I love the animation
Also the opening is awesome
Yeah it's really fantastic.
Maybe I'll binge it once it's done and it's assured we don't get the epilogue from Usagi Drop.
On the one hand, I'm super into it, but on the other hand, Oliver was like one character that I really didn't like Bendis' voice for. He sounded really immature and dickish and unintelligent. Him, Barry, and Ray Palmer are two characters that Bendis has written that don't sound right.
I think if I had a favorite era, it'd be the 00s through the early 10s. A lot of my favorite stuff seems to come from there, especially DC. All of Simone's stuff, for example, but I think I'm mostly with you in that I don't have a favorite era, but being that I really got into comics as a hobby and not just passively so recently, I've definitely read a lot more recent stuff (even as back log) than really old stuff.The longer I read comics the less I have a favorite period. My least favorite is definitely the mid 2000's--that period from 2004 or so to 2007 was really meh. Civil War and Identity Crisis and One Year Later and it's just a ton of misses. My second least favorite, actually, is probably right now.
Make no mistake, there's a ton of GREAT comics that come out. But the diversity makes it so that every comic isn't for me. Now that's a GOOD thing, because it means there are more comics for other people. But for me personally there are just in general, fewer comics to read. There was a time when my list of favorite writers were everywhere: Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, Mark Waid, Gail Simone, Kurt Busiek, Peter David, more. The 90's and 2000's saw those people all over the place.
But these days most of those writers have a diminished presence in comics as they work on other things. There's a handful of people there who could take their place: Al Ewing, James Tynion, Kieron Gillen...and that's about it. It's a lot more empty. Occasionally I'll find something really solid like Gwenpool or New Super-Man, but they'll do that one book then they're off writing mini-series or something.
In the end, this is probably fine. I've wanted time to read more old comics. I made my way through a number of seminal 90's comics, but there's stuff from the 70's and 80's I still need to finish. Wrap up the rest of the Legion. Finish all of Iron Man volume 1. Finish Claremont's X-Men, Byrne's Fantastic Four, and PAD's Incredible Hulk. I love Wonder Woman so I wanna finish the second volume--at least get through the beginning. I should probably figure out what in DC was worth reading in the 70's and 80's, lol.
I certainly don't think comics aren't for me now just because there's more women, queer people, and people of color--especially since I'm two of those things (or like, one and a half?)--I just think right now comics are going through a phase that doesn't align with my interests. That doesn't last long. For all I know 5G is smarter than I think and it winds up being awesome, or Marvel will suddenly bring up a ton of amazing series and then I'm only reading modern comics again.
Because he sucks. Barry is singlehandedly my least favorite comic book character of all time, and I stand firm in that regard.This is really well said. I don't know that I have a singular favorite era of comics either, but I do have favorite runs from all across the spectrum. Like I have pretty much zero interest in Barry Allen Flash comics outside of the sheer ridiculousness of the Silver Age (the way Barry discovers Earth 2 in the Flash of Two Worlds issue is hilarious). The only era I really don't get into is the Golden Age, otherwise I can read and enjoy comics from any era.
I'd like to believe it's more Jessica Jones. NEW Jessica Jones, but who knows. We've already gotten enough X book announcements.
