Thinking about it, I'd actually really like a Johns Atom book. Did Johns ever have an Atom book? Aside from some JSA?
looking forward to the real conclusion to Aaron's Thor. let's just pretend the snore of realms didn't happen
ok, thanks. I did not notice that in the first issue, but then again I wasnt looking for it. Didnt even think about it until I saw Pete and MJ in bed talking about how many times theyve tried to be together in like issue 3 or 4.@Vic_Viper I think it's been clarified but basically nobody remembers the Mephisto deal except that there is one part of OMD that was mostly ignored and maybe even retconned by Joe "you can make deals with satan and suffer no consequences" Quesada. In the original story Mephisto tells Peter that he will leave *just* enough of their memories of the timeline intact so that they would be aware that *something* is missing, and that empty feeling would possibly result in Mephisto having ownership of Peter's soul over time (or something to that effect). I think we've seen maybe 3 instances of this, one of them being the first issue of Spencer's run when Peter says that it sometimes feels like something's missing while the panel focuses on where a wedding ring would be.
The global "everyone except Peter and MJ forgets" thing is completely unrelated and was just done by some magic nonsense by Strange/Stark/etc. Completely unrelated to the Mephisto deal except for that it canonically takes place "after" the deal and Aunt May is revived. Peter and MJ 100% remember the memory wipe act, in fact it's implied to be part of the reason that MJ and he break up prior to BND. Which is total bullshit but Quesada is a clown when it comes to Spider-Man so whatever.
It was also part of the Black Cat subplot. She remembered being with him but who he was and what he looked like under the mask was taken from her.ok, thanks. I did not notice that in the first issue, but then again I wasnt looking for it. Didnt even think about it until I saw Pete and MJ in bed talking about how many times theyve tried to be together in like issue 3 or 4.
So the global everyone forgot but MJ and Pete thing is about his Secret Identity right, not that they were married and had it taken from them.
Yeah, but they have to choose whether it's in-continuity or not, because if it's in continuity, there's tons of explanation that needs to be done for the other books if they're not going to take his stuff. If it's not, then Rebirth itself is not in continuity, because it's Doomsday Clock is the continuation of the book that acted as the catalyst for the Rebirth era.it's been fairly obvious for a while that that plan wasn't going to work out, and I've guessed for a while that a lot of the book's delays came down to rewrites and redrawing of completed portions due to them no longer fitting with the rest of the DC line, but yeah, that Snyder quote all but confirms it won't have much impact on the broader DC line outside a "Doomsday Clock Aftermath: New Rorschach in the DCU" miniseries or however they follow it up.
Are they supposed to release this week? If so, hyyyype
People said the same thing about Bendis, you never know
I was with you until the other theory just clicked everything into place. you came up with probably the only other answer that could have existed and checked all the boxes of stuff that's happened this run
If its the imprint they are talking about, the only other team I know of it the Inhumans, since I only see 1 on the roster atm. Blade was in the recent mini, so maybe him too. Not sure what they mean by that though lol unless there will be more street level focused missions or something.
Did you read the issue today?
Post Doomsday Clock?
What’s she’s saying is honestly incredibly common for Twitter in 2019. There’s something about the site that brings out the raw id in people, valid criticism or not. That kind of thing can be like sticking yourself with a thousand needles, especially if you’re already prone to anxiety. It’s why I tweet and look at the site/app much much less than when I first signed up, myself. And I agree with the criticisms of Cain. Heck, I agree with the vast majority of minority/marginalized/representation/leftist rhetoric on Twitter and it can still stress the hell out of me. Because Twitter is “on” all the time and not everybody can be that. Some people need a break. And if/when it’s your only outlet to express your frustration, I think that makes it easy to assume the people that get overwhelmed by are saying you’re all the same, outrage culture, etc etc, even if that’s very literally not what’s being said at all. Her response is very “It’s not you, it’s me” and I think that’s fair. She literally sets Cain and the book aside and I really don’t think it’s fair to twist “this triggered me” into “whoa Mags is a white feminist, calling trans women CGers” That’s not what’s in that post, on the surface or in the subtext. She even logged off! Like, this an FB post somebody is taking and feeding back into Twitter. Mags isn’t even choosing to put this in peoples faces on Twitter herself.
Exactly.Her trauma is valid and so is her choice to prioritize her own health over dealing with the bigger controversy grown from Cain and Megs' own comments. The controversy and criticism are also valid. Hopefully, people can still be respectful even if Megs isn't at a point where she feels safe/comfortable enough to explain her comments.
This was me right here
Also the TV pilot for Sweet Tooth has been shot and looks like the Essex County adaptation is shooting next March.Andrea Sorrentino and I also started working on a NEW project that we are squeezing in between Gideon Falls arcs. We're both lucky enough to be far enough ahead on Gideon that we can do a small side-project like this and not miss a beat in terms of our schedule. The book gives us both a chance to play with a character neither of us has worked on before, and I think it will be announced in about two or three weeks, right before San Diego Comicon.
Speaking of San Diego Comicon, I will be there this year doing a few different panels and signings for both Dark Horse and Image, as well as the DC Comics Black Label panel. I'll send another newsletter closer to the convention with my schedule in case any of you are attending and want to stop by to say hello or get anything signed.
My long gestating project with the great PHIL HESTER, called FAMILY TREE, will finally launch in November from Image Comics. Phil is working in issue 3 as I write this and I've written seven scripts so far. Eric Gapstur will be joining us as the inker, and Ryan Cody will be coloring. Will Dennis is editing. Here is a finished page from Issue 1, shown for the first time...
