Uncanny Avengers Fan Distressed About Uncanny Avengers' Regular Release Schedule

The fan described the first few issues as "like a surprise birthday in his pants" when they sporadically came out.



Source: Press Release

Jacob Edwards is just like any other comic book fan, except slower. He suffers from a rare but very real disease known as Lethargus Comicus Millaritis. Those afflicted by this disease are unable to cope with the hectic pacing of monthly comic books, and can only read comics that come out at a pace of every three months or slower.

"Theeeeee laaaaasssssttttt coooommmmiiiccccc IIIII rreeeaallllyyyyy eennnjoooyyyyeeedddd beeffoooorrreeee ttthhhiiissss waaaassssss Alllll Ssstttaaaarrrrr Baattttmmaaannnn aannnndddd Rrrrooobbbiinnnn thheeeeee Bbboooyyyyy Wwwoooonnnnddddeeerrrr byy Fraaaannnnkkk Miiiillleeeerrrr annndd Jiiimm Leeeeeeeeeeeeee," said Edwards, who, as a result of his condition, speaks in slow motion.

As you can imagine, Uncanny Avengers, thanks to John Cassaday's inability to draw more than one comic every six months, was the perfect fit for Edwards. But with Cassaday off of Uncanny Avengers and Daniel Acuna in, Edwards finds he cannot keep up with the book.

"Iiiiii'mmmm veerrryyyy saaaaaddddddddddddd," a tearful Edwards told us.

"What?" asked an indignant Cassaday when we reached out to him for comment on this issue. "Fuck you, that's not a real disease!"

Though most fans probably appreciate being able to read Uncanny Avengers on a regular schedule, The Outhouse hopes that Marvel understands the negative effect their on-time comic book production has on some members of the fanbase and puts Cassaday on another book as soon as possible, which, in Cassaday's case, is probably May, 2015.

Here's the press release and a first look at Uncanny Avengers #8:

Ragnarök NOW! First Look – UNCANNY AVENGERS #8!

Marvel is pleased to present your first look at Uncanny Avengers #8, from the critically acclaimed creative team of writer Rick Remender and artist Daniel Acuña! As burning shards of the Peak Station plummet to earth, the Marvel Universe enters Ragnarök! Now comes retribution for Thor’s rash action in the past—the God-slaying axe, Jarnbjorn, has returned in the hands of the Apocalypse Twins! What devastation awaits in the aftermath of the Apocalypse Twins’ brutality and their assassination of a Celestial? It is a fate so shattering that the Marvel Universe will quake to its very core. Not even the Uncanny Avengers can prevent the onslaught of Ragnarök!

Each issue of Uncanny Avengers includes a code for a free digital copy on the Marvel Comics app (for iPhone®, iPad®, iPad Touch® & Android devices). Additionally, each issue of Uncanny Avengers features special augmented reality content available exclusive through the Marvel AR app – including cover recaps, behind the scenes features and more that add value to your reading experience at no additional cost.

Putting a Cassaday cover on an Acuna-penciled book is like putting Betty White on the cover of Penthouse.

So is it mostly Remender is just telling a bad story or is it just a bad team? Also not getting into hiring CASSADAY for any book because that problem was written on the wall the day he was let to sign the contract.

I think it's a combination of a bad story, bad art, and a team that doesn't really mesh well together.

I gave it five issues, but now I'm done. It's been a while since a book has disappointed me more than this one. Shame, really, because it's supposedly the Marvel Now flagship, but of all the books I've read from that line only the X-Men Legacy sucked harder.

The last two issues have been pretty strong. Especially this week's. Younger Thor vs. Apocalypse was pretty bad ass.

This is what you should expect to see for the first fifteen issues or so. I'd more worried if we were reading a book whose first few stories showcased great teamwork from the people who were just beating their brains out in Avengers vs. X-Men.
