the book that some people in /co/ want to love but dont want to buy and will most likely get killed anfter #6
B-but I'm buying it. I was even going to get a variant for this issue but the only one was by Erica Henderson, thus confirming my fear that Marvel wants this to fail.
At least Shooter's Starbrand is getting a reprint.
good job mang
i know its crap, i wasnt trying anything
hey look its over
it was, something
sure thing senpai, i have nothing else to storytime
and that was all
refer to the top of the page for the #2
A White Event is happening on Kree-Pama, the capitol of the Kree Empire now that Hala has been blown up. The person in the bottom right is a Kree that's become the Nightmask.
So presumably we'll be getting a kree Starbrand and Nightmask as antagonists in a future arc.
I like it very much t b h. Another artist could work better perhaps, but art is fine and I love cosmic stories, even if ANAD has it toned down very much. Also the lighthearted high-school attitude goes surprisingly well with probably world-ending threats.
Why isn't there a law against transmuting gold?
Wouldn't creating gold ruin the economy?
When the Beyonder turned an office building into gold the US government quickly stole it away and threw it in the ocean.
A flood destroyed Ellis' harddrive that had all of his notes, scripts, and worldbuilding for newuniversal on it. After it got destroyed, he said fuck it and abandoned the project. Marvel didn't both continuing it once he left since he was the driving creative force, and the sales weren't all that great to begin with.
Shit, I remember being way into it when I was twelve.
Plus Harry also went to ESU and is the current head of Parker Industries NYC so he's a notable person in-universe. Could be named after him.
Also Osborn probably donated a bunch of money to the school.
>The empire still standing
>Whole planet full of Kree
>Hala the Accuser still believes she's the last Kree.
At least we know Weisman is not Team Bendis. Kong is safe.
>don't want to buy
Thanks for the storytime, though.
One was artificially created on Mars and aged up in a matter of minutes, the other killed his entire college when he got his powers.
Give it time, I expect changes by the end of the first arc.
I liked this comic enough, if anything, on principle: it's one of the few Marvel's putting out the feels like it's drawing on the history and lore while, knowing Weisman, likely adding more of its own. Nothing revolutionary, but it's entertaining enough.
Why does it seem like there's proportionally a lot more hate for this than other Marvel/DC books? Is it just >muh non-photorealistic art?
Art could be better in places, some people think the characters are stale/1-sided, "32 pages of nothing's happening", the usual /co/ bandwagon.
But really, it's just Weisman's curse. Guy monkey paw'd his way into animation/comics or something.
>32 pages of nothing's happening
I'm normally one of those complainers, but this book actually does have things moving at a relatively nice pace. We've already seen the central conflict established as well as future events being teased.
I just see a lot of "this book should be cancelled HAHA" in the archives/this thread. "Why this book and not any other (basically equal) superhero title" is what I'm wondering.
Maybe he is cursed.
I would guess it's just cartoonfags who have grudges about the writer from elsewhere. This book is already a stealth mini anyway judging by how the #1 sold. I don't see why anyone could invest energy complaining about it.
Because it's not using casual-friendly characters for readers to try it out. The Squirrel Girl cameo gathered more attention than anything else.
Besides we know this is just to hold over Weisman until they announce the inevitable Gargoyles comic continuation later this year
