Good evening owls of /co/,
Let's finish this run up
I know I'm early, but hey, I'm just glad I'm here at all
Travel day took its toll and had to do evening shopping and wash the dog, and then I got ill and had a shitty night :(
Shit, Nicola Scott's art with her own inks is a thousand times better than it ever was on E2
these turkey captchas are...gobble gobble
>Shit, Nicola Scott's art with her own inks is a thousand times better than it ever was on E2
she got stuck with such shitty inking and coloring on E2, it was a crime
Her Secret Six looked vastly better too, as did her Convergence TT mini
E2 was wasted potential in pretty much every arena!
Daken is best seen being stepped upon
> he's all I got
> besides the school full of kids and the handful of surrogate daughters I've raised
> I mean I've only known about him for like 2 years at this point, which in Marvel time is like a couple of weeks
this is such a downgrade after Tony Moore
married partner is probable husbando material
that would require actively looking at those titles to know :(
fill-in grocery shopping today s-u-c-k-e-d
you'll make a girl blush, anon
so what was good today? I am saving Omega Men for when I get to my LCS whenever that is because I'm not sure what day I'm going home
I haven't fired up ADOM yet because on the road, but I am gonna get home and play the fuck out of a Lawful character
because being not-Lawful in that game hurts me, deeply
OH GOODNESS JUST LOOK AT THE TIME
I got bored with Saga around the time the mom was being a shitty actor or something, I forget
this isn't even FUN hax and bullshit
I need to get to that
why is Bunn Smugnestro so fun and his other DC books so blah?
one comic, two ads for some pretty fucking bad comics
He just clicks with Smugnestro I guess
That much smug must be a blast to write, plus Adam and Sinestro hanging out pretty much writes itself
Lost Army and Aquaman are soooo dull though
if you are joining us late because I was early: you missed pretty much FUCKING NOTHING in the first issue.
You ok now OP? I'm worried about you.
>In before someone says I shouldn't worry about people from 4chan
Compared to /v/ I like /co/ and their comfy threads. Plus this thread and OP are the only ones that I can recall that never made me feel rage.
Omega Men was great.
I'd call Grayson great too, but Mooney's art just doesn't fit at all. He improved some, but holy cow.
Also there was lots of plot in that issue that a couple anons pointed out.
Hey, I scored one of life's little victories last night, I got sick in the sink and not on the rug
Been kind of iffy today and my muscles are furious at me for some reason, so we'll see how it goes
oh man oh man is there a page-turn of comedy coming up?
I admit that the Grayson plot is a little confusing right now, but I'm willing to roll with it
also FABULOUS LADYTRON
this is so satisfying
and the crack about her weight was perfect
>I admit that the Grayson plot is a little confusing right now, but I'm willing to roll with it
it's got a lot of threads going on right now, but they're starting to come together
Ladytron is great, I enjoy that Grayson has become a bit of a home for wayward wildstorm characters
I am 100% ready to see Griffles on page
Cockblocked by an EMP, and in Berlin of all places ;___;
I think Solid Frank is a little higher on the rugged just for the beard, but this one's rugged too
this is the kind of speech someone gives and then they get pwned even harder
I remember somewhere in there he went to the opera with Norman and I got annoyed because 1) the boxes were wrong for the Met 2) the repertory wasn't right, either
Oooh, dat Wolverineface
Frank hit right
the eyepatch, too. Checchetto Frank was very fine.
Now we are in even MORE batshit mode
that's what the previous issue missed, it was playing it entirely too straight and safe
Valentine should be writing B&R Eternal by herself
or another ongoing, dc plsbecause her issues were actually good.
Feel bad for the guy who has to write the next issue because it'll probably pale in comparison to hers.
we should read UXF some time
give her Wondy
I just scanned the storytime but it looked like today's Finchy issue was a new low
I think also some fairly acid commentary about just sticking him in the Wolverine costume and calling the book DARK WOLVERINE
Remender does that sort of thing pretty openly at times, dat Mojo UA Annual
So what DC book would you want Good Remender to write bringing his A game, even though he's clearly happy with his bevy of creator-owned
oh god this is hilarious, too
If the Finches aren't off the title after #50 then I have no idea what DC is doing other than praying that a female writer on Wondy will protect them from criticism and trying to keep David at DC.
Man-Thing is the most kawaii of all monsters ever
Being Franked is just showing good taste
so you owls ready for tomorrow?
I dunno, it was kind of out of nowhere last night
the weather is supposed to suck the next few days, and that gets me twitchy, too
but he fancies himself a hipster
You know the bloodstone thing could be used to help Marvel's sliding timescale with Frank. It could just be explained that it rejuvenated him to peak health maybe even took off a few years
Frank, that's mean
also, after this? Time for the first issue's History of the Punisher we skipped
They did do that, but then Rucka's run quietly retconned him into being a veteran of a more recent conflict.
Of course, it was apparently so subtle that subsequent writers didn't pick up on it, so Frank was still called a Vietnam vet in things like Thunderbolts and The Punisher: Nightmare
I'll bump up Parkerbolts just for Man-Thing
I forget, are we mad?
MAD ABOUT ELVES?
Ooh, this was Shadowland time, wasn't it?
And Solid Frank was soon to come
Chills. Frank is the last truly good thing in Marvel in my opinion. No fucked up retcons, no political stuff, just pure good fun.
Also occurs to me that after decades of talking to Maria as he does interior monologues, she must be getting pretty f'ing bored.
Oh Frank, you and your messages
I think so
So Nuke was in the Jessica Jones show, except he's less beefy steroidal tattooed and more like a Chris Evans knockoff who walks around in his underwear?
Frank had some weird-ass adventures
And here's how Frank got to be a black dude for a little bit.
Frank in other countries is probably my favorite thing.
holy shit, that Blue Marvel costume
Dr. Strange looks good with the flowing belt. did he lose his white streaks in the not-reboot?
Parkerbolts ALSO has some quality fucking USAgent
so I saw some of a 90s Daimon Hellstrom series in the bins today. is it any good?
>Genis-Vell trolling like a champ
Whew, THE END
Thanks for reading, owls; if I'm alive tomorrow evening, I'll try to bring you some Kirkman from when he was young and funny, with Tony Moore art, on the 100% blasphemous BATTLE POPE
>Nobody ever brings those arcs up
It's rare for anyone to acknowledge anything pre Ennis Punisher except the angel arc and the black face to mock those stories and the time he showed up in Miller's Daredevil
Sometimes people at Marvel or DC really push a character they want to be a big deal for some reason. I mean in the 90's DC mad a big push for Eclipso of all people
I guess Spider-Gwen/Gwenpool is the current version
