Marvel’s Age Of Ultron Creates New Tie-In Paradigm Sure To Piss People Off

Dear Marvel,
~The Internet

Source: Age Of Ultron Creates New AU Spinoff Titles

Do me a favor, go to Marvel Comics Full Monthly Solicitations for March 2013 and do a quick search for “Fantastic Four #5” and hit enter, now hit enter again.  Now, do the same thing with “Superior Spider-Man #6.” You are not mistaken; there are two different Fantastic Four #5s and Superior Spider-Man #6s coming out in March.

One is the normal run of the mill non-event comic book, and the other is an Age Of Ultron Tie-In.

So, there are a couple of ways the internet can take this news.  First, and most reasonable, would be to look at this and say “Wow that is pretty cool.  I can keep reading the books I like without having to tie into some stupid event that I don’t care about while people who do get sucked into buying tie-ins don’t have to settle for limited series that never matter.”

Or, and more probable, the reaction will be “What the bloody Hell is wrong with Marvel!  Forcing me to double dip!? F*ck you Marvel, I’m boycotting you until Gail Simone is back on Batgirl!”

About the Author - GHERU

RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time.  RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage.  Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write.  RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them.  RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor.  You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
