Good evening owls of /co/,
Are you ready for beatdowns, surrealism, and Ghost?
also, the Avengers are here
HAPPY BIRTHDAY KEITH GIFFEN
dat sulky Karla face
or is everyone in the butts thread, that's 100% understandable
Oh, whoops. There's so much good comics tonight but I wanna wait for muh owls
oh Fraction IIM, you were languid at the best of times
dat face. Poor Thor. That is the best D: I've seen in ages.
Be sure to zoom in on the top panel so you can see ALL the "my tits are riiight here" action!
Oh yeah, this is not long after Siege, wherein Loki was a very, very bad boy
because you can do a hell of a lot with it--are they gonna be good? are they gonna be bad? and there's actual tension because the path is not set out unless it's, like, fucking Crossbones
she 100% flashed Thor
the total filthiness of the women's section of the Raft is one of my favorite running gags in this run
Ooh, more Vizh
time for even more fucked-upness!
reminder: Thor was a frog, and it was a great story
reminder: in Chuck Austen X-Men, Shulkie banged the Juggernaut
I love watching Cap beat up someone like Crossbones
there are lots of adventures with Man-Thing yet to come, I promise
Om nom nom. Fucking delicious.
Because, as a means of saving time, it was discovered that instead of peeling potatoes for Thanksgiving, they could be sliced length-wise and scooped out to make mash, while creating skins to be filled with cheese and sour cream later on. Nice thinking, Mom.
Yost's recent Juggs story was kinda meh
but it had bitchy Northstar in it
Sneckie was wonderful
Reboot got short-shrifted
I'm gonna miss all the times she did cute snake things.
At least Archie Legion did get a finale where they were all cute on the beach
Man-Thing is one of the few people largely immune to Karla's bullshit, so he can indulge safely
DAMMIT PARKER THAT WAS MEAN
back in 5-10, gotta do some shit before I sit back down
Well Man-Thing exists because of a bad girl. He was a scientist working on , surprise surprise, a super soldier serum. His lover was actually a spy and tried to kill him, he fell into the swamp with his serum and became Man-Thing
It was uncharacteristically gratuitous and mean.
ahhh, dat ass.
Also, villains on a leash is a great hook because every villain has a different reason for being there and psychological issues
The whole issue has a good balance of when you let up because it's not about fighting, and then when you kick the shit out of a motherfucker like Crossbones.
Saw this coming. These three are almost hilariously corrupt. They seem to be trying to make Lex Luthor look like a huge pussy.
Oh, he's definitely voiced by Doug Jones. No way in the world Ghost doesn't sound like Psycho Mantis.
There are a whole bunch of Hyperions running around, remember
bets on how many issues Chuck Wendig's Hyperion book gets: go
OH YEAH I forgot to mention that
and the silver temples, nnnngh
MOONSTONE IS THE FUCKING BEST
I know nothing about his books just that he's a comics-writing n00b
I love how casual Songbird is about all the different Hyperions
dat eyebrow lift
"we roll exclusively by Man-Thing"
Karla's pretty jealous, but she's also not a bad reader of character...
on a scale of one to Grifter/Midnighter, tho, how gay was Thor/Hyperion in Hickmanvengers
it'll be an interesting thing to watch! Black Panther has, like, a planned year-long story, right?
>I'm "SJW" enough to appreciate a book with less typical protagonists
I'd just like to point out how utterly fucking sad it is that liking non-typical protagonists (which in some cases means basically anyone who isn't white and male) apparently makes you an SJW.
a comics world with no kaiju in it would be a sad place
shed a tear for Kaijumax E2 Gotham, we barely saw you
We got to see Barda beating things up there, I wanted a resolution of that
I'm surprised that the storytime thread I did with the jewish/gay protagonist, where about much of the male cast is also gay, has been going for a few days already
Because yeah, it can get rough
Wow, this is like the least awful and porny Land cover in...
I'd like to think that this reverse political correctness thing is just a joke that refuses to end, but it's not. Even idiots who think they're funny will eventually shut the fuck up. Only ting that makes sense is if it's genuine.
/co/ at least is surprisingly full of yaoi fans. Not entirely sure what that's about.
I don't, unfortunately, I got it from a massive and well-organized Thunderbolts torrent
but if it's just a few things, I might be able to upload them later for u, anon
Ooh, son, be careful about discounting the plant
Naw, just look at Hyperion's tumor arms and Moonstone's weird pelvis, they're Land as hell
It just doesn't look like a Land cover at first because it doesn't have that disgusting photo realism plasticky coloring
great action, characters, and deliciously meta
ALL HAIL FROG SOTHOTH
Hyperion is King Hyperion, which means he's an asshole
>Juggernaut being a team player
... Okay then.
I loved the evil versions of the main superheroes, there were some really cool ideas.
>Spider-Other covering Hell's Kitchen in webs
>Tony enslaving people and putting them in mech suits
Basically, life goes better for him when he does it, he gets out of his cell and not bored and gets to hit things
"Why do people always dress me up as that woman?"
I met Jeff Parker at Cinci-Comic Con and he said that when he pitched the Hyperion fight to Marvel, they suggested that Hyperion goal be to destroy the city or the world or something to give the Thunderbolts motivation. He told them that that made no sense and they were fighting him just because they didn't like him. They kept fighting for the stakes to be raised and couldn't understand that Hyperion was just an asshole.
There's gotta be a way. Also, speaking of Providence, goddamn that last issue was fucked up. I was impressed with how they managed to make him reading the Necronomicon so unsettling without going overboard.
Also, first issue with
on-screen rapeand man was it fucked up.
Ooh, Karla, is that a sneaky...CONSCIENCE???
I mean, you really get the sense that it's an alluring book. Black is literally letting time slip by while reading it - and it's pretty well written.
It's not a spell book, it's just facts as the Mad Arab saw them, which works better haha.
God that scene was fucked up. The mood works, the art works, lessons were learned from their last mini
This run is a spectacular showcase of Moonstone's ass
In Austin's X-men got built up as an angry teen and Xavier recommended him for the programme
Still thinks she can pull shit even after dark reign
Hey owls, thanks for reading. Man-Thing story tomorrow!
Don't forget to play seekrit santa with us if you wish (no rush, we got all month), and is tomorrow a TV night, should I start slow?
Thanks for posting as always, Storyteller.
Hyperion is a punk bitch who got his ass beat, and I'm okay with that. Now Gunna can take his place and antics about how everyone feels weird about having a cannibalistic feral teenager on the team.
I figured he was, they seemed pretty freaked out.
They did the time-distortion thing really well, with no-one actually coming out and telling him that he lost a week. The way they paced the whole issue just made it searingly creepy.
Awesome, thanks for the story time and thanks for the links
Being designated the Universes Jobber has given him some perspective apparently.
>telling him that he lost a week
He lost a month. A goddamn month.
Burrows did really good job at rendering the Witch House.
The pacing was top form.
Can't wait for Pickman's Model next issue.
Pickman's Model is the one about the Macabre artist with a ghoul living down his well, isn't it?
I read that one in one of the Lovecraft Comic Anthologies, some really creepy shit.
I wonder if we'll get any references to He or The Festival, they both seem prime for exploiting.
Yeah it is.
At 12 issues here seems to be the main checklist for stories so far.
The Rats in the Walls.
The Case of Charles Dexter Ward
The Haunter in the Dark
The Statement of Randolph Carter
He's pretty much the best Iron Man villain, it seems odd that he's never been adapted for the MCU.
My favourite Iron Man villain is probably still The Mandarin though I don't know why, I just like him
Could be interesting.
I guess there's a chance that we might get a reference to He the same way we've gotten references to some of the other stories, like The Picture in the House.
Oh wait - it's the Picture in the House I was thinking of not Rats in the Walls haha.
That's the last method we haven't seen yet.
I'd love to see a reference to Lovecraft's romcm.
Also, upon reading up on the novella, apparently Hill was in one of the ReAnimator stories as a fighter pilot that is flying West somewhere, but doesn't get reanimated because he gets shredded when there plane gets shot down.
I think he was in spider-man recently. Found the comic. The Amazing Spider-Man (2014) #17.
