like i said, the man is a revolutionary for how he's managed to stay consistent and fresh for almost a decade on the avengers by constantly trying something new and exploring storytelling from so many different sides.

when people listen to criticism like yours about respecting continuity and things like that it ends up with something like DC pre DCnU.....and now as we can see they're basically reliving the 90's after they tried oh so hard to break the 70's/80's-cross-dark-and-edgy tribute phase that geoff johns and didio put them through during the 2000's.

therefore bendis is saving us from those sort of stories aka the stories your kind of fan wants because the alternative is enough to kill the book side of the industry.

I like a lot of Bendis's work, but, I still know enough to recognize crap when I see it.

And mould is what grows in your shower.

Fine, recanted.

is Roy Thomas even around/alive/not Ditko-esqueian reclusive?


I really liked his work on Mar-Vell :/

Yeah the modern comic reader isn't "hip" they're still mouth breathing cosplayers who live in basements and write erotic fan fiction about the bionic woman and swamp thing. Chap and his ilk are the people the companies would rather be reading their comics. Because even though being "geeky" is chic right now, reading comics still isn't.

Hank calls Sue Richards, Sue Storm :roll: (to make it worse, Sue is called Richards in the page one recap and then called Storm on the last (waste of a) page who's who icons.

Not to get involved (and I know I'm coming to the party a bit late) but aren't these things an EDITOR should catch if the writer makes the mistake?

The first part not so much, after all, Hank's reactions can vary.

But the thing with Susan-Richards-Storm is just sloppy.
