>what if he's really, really crazy
He's been that already. Just be sure to explore what it means to be a mentally unstable vigilante this time, and not use it for flavor like Ellis and co. did.
>>
>>78763037
Fucking Christ, cut it out with the god damn #1s. Does anyone remember when they would just fucking keep the run and switch writers? Now this confusing ass trend is a norm.
>>
>>78763056
I know, right? He was really shitty in the Wood run(though it matched the writing)
>>
>>78764706
>Does anyone remember when they would just fucking keep the run and switch writers?
Actually...no.
>>
>>78763037
pretty much the only comic from marvel I'm looking forward to and gonna pick up in the near future, hyped as fuck
>>
>>78764741
Wood was the only one who attempted something more than "Marc says a badass quip, then punches people."

It certainly wasn't anything revolutionary, but it had some semblance of craft that Ellis/ that other guy didn't.
>>
>>78764706
What do you think would sell more- #1, or #18?
Welcome to comic book business
>>
This art looks fantastic.
>>
>>78764706
Yes.
It's the sorry ass attempt to bring n new readers or some shit. No integrity in comics anymore.
>>
>>78764872
why?
>>
>>78764876
Making him Batman was not "something more".
>>
>>78764902
It used to be numbers didn't have an affect on sales. Then the 90s happened. Speculator pandering has destroyed the industry and no one is even trying to undo the damage anymore.
>>
>>78764780
>What is Amazing Spider-Man
>What is Fantastic Four
>What is Avengers Earths Mightiest Heroes
>What is Daredevil The Man Without Fear
>What is The Incredible Hulk

Nigga are you 12, switching out artists and writers but putting them on the same title was the norm for decades.
>>
>>78764938
Which is irrelevant, because he didn't make him Batman.
>>
>>78764706
When DC doesn't do it /co/ bitches about it and calls them "dumb" and like to say "they can't into marketing"
>>
>>78764902
It turns me off. What's the point of attempting to keep track if they're going to do that all the time and make it confusing?
Might as well never make a #2 according to your logic.
>>
>>78765009
Anyone who thinks that is a retard.
>>
>>78764972
>>What is Fantastic Four
Even fucking Hickman's run got a new #1. When it was finished it was relaunched under Fraction with a new #1 and then with Robinson it got a new #1 again. This dates back 5 years or so.
>>
>>78764907
money for one, economy is shit in canada atm, also not many other comics interest me in the new relaunch, i would have picked up spider-man if it wasn't fucking Slott again writing it
>>
>>78764976
He made him act more like Batman than anything. Ellis didn't do anything charcterwise with him, but at least he didn't go full Batman with him.
>>

>Then the 90s happened

Jesus grandpa go back to your Journey Into Mystery bs
>>78765016
>It turns me off
Then stop reading it? You complaining about it isn't going to stop normie from picking up #1 because its the start of a story vs issue #18 because it's the start of a new arc
>>
>>78764907
Because Lemire with less executive meddling. Books with the less executive meddling are the best of ANAD. And they're actually great. I know it's cool to hate MARVEL nowadays, but if you look on their products you can at least count 15 books above a rating of 7/10.
>>
>>78765059
>Using newer FF

I'm talking classic genius holy fuck
>>
>>78765076
But why this comic? especially considering the fact that you can't afford a lot. Lemire's been really crap for Marvel.

Those six issues were much more concerned with looking at Marc's history as a mercenary--the themes of war and violence were actually talked about and not just implied.

Nothing Batman about that.

I'm so damn hyped for this, the art looks amazing and I'm liking what Lemire's been saying about the book in interviews.

I know Lemire's pretty shit at Marvel, but for some reason I think this will be great.

I really don't see how you can get on your high horse and defend Brian Fucking Wood as some great writer. Top lel.

No. They're actually good. Try reading instead of blatantly hating it.

Astonishing Ant-Man

Read this comment well, /co/. Read it and know that this is what we've come to. The current comic industry can shovel shit into your mouths, and you'll say it's ice cream. The weirdest part is people this stupid will never understand what is so ridiculous about what they said.

Man, you're not even pretending to have read any of these are you? Hell, I doubt you've even read Vision and are just saying that it's the only good one because that's what you've seen other people on /co/ say.

In fact, do you even read comics in the first place or are you just on this board for the /tv/ and stale memes?

So far a 6/10, previous run was 7-7.5 though, so we'll see.

6/10
>Carnage
Dunno
>Ultimates
5.5/10, but apart from Rambeau I'm kind of biased against the team.
>Hawkeye
Dunno, but Lemirw at Marvel has been disappointing.
>Vision
8/10
>Hercules
6/10 with potential

It's not a bad list, but it's mostly just baseline stuff with a few standouts.

Kavanagh is still the king of being the worst MK writer, but Dixon was bad too.

This is just the 90s gimmick covers of this era. People will get/have gotten sick of it and be turned off.

It's impossible to imagine anymore, but when I first got into comics as a kid, a high number on an issue meant legitimacy to me. "It's been around for a long time, this must be a good character/book" ... I have no clue why, in this era of instant info, a high issue number should be a turnoff given that it will take you one google search to catch up on everything you needed to know

Wouldn't go that far. Dixon was just incredibly mediocre.

>>78767176
You mean the least accurate portrayal of DID ever? Those "personalities" were just different skins of Matches Malone and other Batman identities.

Moench/Sienkiewicz had loads of charm and style, but was heavily indebted to Batman. Huston was the real revolutionary by getting rid of most traditional superhero elements.
>>
>>78767176
But MK always was a Batman.
>throws boomerangs that look like his symbol

There even is an illustration of MK shoving Batman aside and saying something like "out of the way, old man!"
>>
>>78767271
If this Huston is so good, why isn't he writing anymore?
>>
>>78767328
I believe balancing his other projects with Marvel was too much, at the time. He was a novelist before writing comics (a big reason his run is thematically layered like a book), so he's probably still doing that.

Man, reading that run was very painful.
Not because of writing, but because Finch is one of the most vomit-inducing artists. Not bad, but he's the definition of sickeningly bland.
Not to mention it's incomprehensible at times because Finch cannot into dynamic action scenes, so you have to figure out what happened for a couple of seconds.
I'm usually writing > art type, but this really made the run worse than it could be.

I agree that the action scenes were really muddled, but I thought Finch was pretty on-point for most of the run.
>>
>>78767511
>bland.
Finch channels all of the over-exaggeration and awful "extreme" qualities of the 90s. It's not pleasant to look at, but that's the farthest thing from "bland."

Better yet, it fits with how over-exaggerated and extreme Marc was in this run. I don't think there were too many scenes that were that hard to interpret, but this was honestly Finch at his best. Doesn't say much, but still...

So how was the last volume of Moon Knight? Last thing I heard that it was going through it's third writer before it ended prior to Secret Wars. I have little faith in Lemire since everything he's written at Marvel so far has been utterly mediocre

>>78767925

>>78767913

I talked about a single stretch of comics he's written.

I know this is 4chan, and I probably hurt your feelings with that crack on Dixon, but isn't there anything else you could say that's more productive criticism?
>>
>>78768103
>LOL U MAD
Nice productive criticism, bro : )
>>
>>78767925
The writers came on in shifts, each doing a six issue "season" before shifting to a new creative team.

As you can see from this thread, feelings have been mixed, but the general consensus is that it was an incredibly stylish series that doesn't require a lot of knowledge on the character's backstory.
>>
>>78768162
>incredibly stylish
So the art was good but the writing was crap? Oh god.
>>
>>78768213
Again, depends on who you ask.

They were mostly episodic issues. The first six were by Ellis, and had a lot of his signature cheeky dialogue and other trappings.

Most of /co/, in my experience, thought that part, at the very least, was great. I'm more inclined to agree with this guy's >>78767271
opinion, but I didn't hate the new stuff as much.
>>
>>78768062

I only just started reading modern Marvel and I don't get the appeal. It all feels so bland and no one seems to be able to write characters with any kind of personality. Nova had three heroes in it this month and they all read about the same past Marvel talking more than the other two. It was so boring. When did this happen? I used to love their older stuff.
>>
>>78768305
I hated it, but that's mostly because with "one issue - one story" format I've expected a Fell successor, and ended up with a series that's too action-heavy.
>>
>>78768305
>GOTTA SHILL HARDER
>>
>>78768364
>and ended up with a series that's too action-heavy
I don't think you should expect any differently from Ellis' Marvel work. He's been taking the "for hire" part pretty seriously, and keeping his more imaginative ideas for himself, I think.
