we are also up set that Marvel isn't catering to the fanboys who want everyone and everything to stay the same, or at least want comics to stay 'theirs' and not reflect the movies (because those fans aren't real fans and we liked comics before liking comics were cool)
I could have sworn yesterday we were mad at Marvel for catering to fanboys and not having new ideas and new characters and that if the Big Two had new characters then new readers would flock to the industry and save us all.
This isn't a new idea.
Everything I've criticised comics for recently comes down to them being creatively bankrupt. This is 100% an example of this.
Look I get it, you like your superhero comics, but FFS sometimes the writers of them don't even try and hide their contempt for the readers. They obviously know readers will swallow anything.
A black aged character who calls himself Nick Fury is NOT a new character. Especially when he has no logical reason to call himself Nick Fury. This is just a cheap cash grab.
And I'm fed up of "Oh marvel are just acting like a business". If they had ANY business sense whatsoever, they currently wouldn't be selling 30,000 units of Wolverine or whatever state the industry is in.
Marvel movie's is a business. It's innovative, and it's being rewarded for risks. Marvel's comics department is an afterthought that is used to keep intellectual properties.
