Mikel [Janin] is widely known for drawing the sexiest men in comics. The idea of doing a buffer, sexier Riddler — I like that. I think he’s a reflection of Batman and I think of him like a scary, evil Batman. Like Bruce Wayne without a conscience. -- Tom King

There had been considerable speculation for some time as to the state of the longest-running North American licensed comic book ever since January, but now it's official - the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series has ended, at least in its current form, and likely moving to a new publisher.

I wasn't intending on posting anything really regarding Secret Empire. After Civil War II: Enchanted Christmas, I was pretty done with Marvel events. However, there was just one moment from Secret Empire that grabbed my attention, because its a point that I constantly brought up a while back about how Spencer treated two certain characters...

Also, yes, I am in the page limit. 1/3 left over.

SPOILERS. Read at your own risk )

If I told you ‘Anyone could die, honest!’... well, you wouldn't believe me. It'd be just more high stakes, like in every issue of every cape comic ever. But if I tell you that someone will die, that it's prophesied, baked in, suddenly there really are high stakes. One of these people is going to go to the far shore and not come back. And you're going to fall in love with all of these characters, so it's going to matter when it happens. -- Al Ewing

Sisters of Sorrow #1

[personal profile] history79 posting in [community profile] scans_daily



"I really love to fuck with genre. With Sisters of Sorrow we’ve created what presumably just looks like high camp and kickass action, but right below the surface, we reveal three-dimensional women, struggling with real-life abuse and the scars of deep emotional pain. At its core, weaved in and out of the action-packed narrative and amazing artwork, Sisters of Sorrow is about abused women empowering themselves. We actually get to tell stories that matter. Like with Sons of Anarchy, it might be the flash of guns and leather that entice you to show up, but it’s the characters and their struggle that keeps you coming back."

- Kurt Sutter

The killer who was'd tracked the vigilante who'd been to Santa Monica.

The latter sat there, watching the former pull the trigger. Then he moved.

The shot went askew, off his arm.

The Nobody knocked him aside.

" So there's still a little fight left in you, Mr. Hettinger. Good. "

" What- what did you call me? "

" I followed your little hero's journey across the country.

" Couldn't help yourself, could you, Greg?

" Well guess what.

" I'm about to undo all of that. "

" Do I know you? "

" No. Not really. But a lot of people are going to die unless you stop me. "

" Who the hell are you? "

" Wouldn't you like to know. "

The Nobody turned and walked away.

Greg, having heard police sirens approaching the scene of the commotion he'd been in, went the same way in another direction.

He went downtown. )

8 is what might end up being the final conflict between Ego and Galactus – you’ll see how that plays out when it drops, but I think it might be the last go-round on that score for at least a few years, and as is my wont, I try to leave Ego in a better place than I found him. -- Al Ewing

I think that’s where a lot of the best events start; they stem from a writer’s belief that you need a bigger canvas to tell a story, rather than trying to retrofit or come up with an event in the room. This is very much just a natural extension of what we’ve been building from “Captain America: Sam Wilson,” to “Avengers: Standoff,” to “Captain America: Steve Rogers,” to this. -- Nick Spencer

In the comments to these weekly posts (and only these posts), it's your chance to go as off topic as you like. Talk about non-comics stuff, thread derail, and just generally chat amongst yourselves.

Clearly the big news has been the announcement of Jodie Whittaker as the new Doctor on Doctor Who. The first woman to ever hold the role in it's 54 years of a regenerating main character. The more toxic end of the fandom, of course, turned up in force and doubtless will continue to but frankly, sod them.

The increase in British life expectancy has slowed down for the first time in over a century.

Trump has been Trump, what more needs to be said.

Though I will mention that he seemed a little nonplussed by President Macron's Bastille Day celebrations including a marching band performing a selection of Daft Punk numbers... a sentence it positively delights me to type.

In cheerier news, the Republican plan to repeal and replace Obamacare has failed, again


Noted actor Martin Landau (best known for North by North-West, Mission Impossible, Space: 1999, or Bela Lugosi in "Ed Wood" depending on your age and tastes) died at the age of 89. A little known aspect of his history was that he spent over a year as a professional cartoonist back in the 1940's. Mark Evanier covers it here.

Dan Slott: In Amazing Spider-Man we’re going to see The Daily Bugle and the Bugle cast come back in a big way. And, no, it is NOT about Peter becoming a photographer again. It’s a new twist. It’s something we haven’t seen in Amazing Spider-Man yet. After 55 years, that’s a pretty cool trick, right? And it’s a development I’ve been dying to get to for a long time!

The upcoming AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #789 starts a BOLD NEW DIRECTION in the life of Peter Parker. Who looks like a very young Martin Landau.

A lot of us on here seem to be Doctor Who fans, and this is fairly big news so I decided to post it. With Peter Capaldi wrapping up as the Twelfth Doctor, it has been an interesting wait to see who would succeed him.Read more... )

We tried this a couple of months back, and though I didn't think it proved popular enough to be a very regular feature, this being the weekend of D23 (The major Disney Expo) there are a few movie and TV related bits of comic book news that might be of interest.

Tonight I watched All the President's Men with my mom, since I keep seeing references to the Watergate scandal these days and I wanted to get a better understanding of it--so many sources assume such an intimate knowledge of it that I find them hard to untangle, so seeing it in movie format made it easier to understand. I came away with two big thoughts:

1. The quote I've always heard about Watergate is, "It's not the crime, it's the coverup." Which makes sense in the specific sense of the Washington Post's investigation of Nixon--they kept uncovering facts that in themselves were completely inconsequential; what led them on was the fact that shortly after, the person who disclosed that fact would issue a terrified denial that the fact was untrue, they had never said the fact was true, they'd never heard of anyone connected to the fact, and they'd never issued a previous statement about the fact at all.

Whereas the truth I'd never quite realized is that Nixon's crimes were in fact far worse than what he did to cover them up. I grew up hearing vague explanations like "Nixon paid someone to keep quiet" or "Nixon recorded conversations" as to what the wrongdoing was--not the final, absolute fact, which was that Nixon put the government to work destroying his political opponents, and only got caught at a bare tenth of it. And I can't tell if that's because the grandparents who set the political tone of my childhood were very politically conservative, or... what. But a lot of hippie conspiracy theories seem a lot less crazy to me now.

2. Oh my god, seeing all those board rooms full of very important white men making all the decisions, seeing women continually relegated to the sidelines, only getting tiny hints of people of colour, is bizarre. That's... that's what the world used to look like. "Mona, take my calls," a reporter barks out as he dashes out to chase a lead. Is that actually Mona's job? Is Mona also a reporter, who has to chase her own leads down while being ignored and asked for coffee, Peggy-Carter-like? My god, there are still people who remember that world, who think they live there.
