I enjoy Grimm Tales of Terror if you're for that Tales from the Crypt-style story. Each volume comes in a "season" format and if you read it online on Comixology, I suggest doing the panel by panel format so it'll be more of a surprise.
Yep. He even would go ranting about how much he hated 52 while it was being done. (Assuming what Linkara said was true.) As for comics I've been reading, Strangers in Paradise has new story that takes place a few years after the series ended (it's called Strangers in Paradise XXV). It's a good jumping point and even has a character or two (from some of his other series) guest star in it.Wait a minute what
Apart from Tintin and Astérix, Spirou et Fantasio, Lucky Luke, Boule et Bille, Gaston Lagaffe, Isabelle, Natacha, Iznougood, Yoko Tsuno, Olivier Rameau, Chlorophylle, Les 4 as, La Ribambelle, La patrouille des castors, Johan et Pirlouit, Les Schtroumpfs and Les Tuniques Bleus are the "classic" BD series I remember having read. Lou!, Titeuf, Seuls, Cédric, L'Élève Ducobu and L'Arabe du futur are the only modern BD series I've read more than one volume of. Note that some of these probably haven't been translated into EnglishAnybody read bande-desinee that isn't Asterix and Tintin?
Johns did have at least one problem, i can understand not liking Batman but he wrote him like such a raging asshole (Saying to Superman he only) but he wrote him really Ooc and Morrison helped in making Jason Todd an edgelord for yearsDoes Didio exist just to fuck up everything Johns and Morrison do for DC? Are we sure he isn't a Marvel plant?
Remember, this is the same dude who called Countdown "52 done right" and ruined the awesome Williams/Blackman run on Batwoman because he didn't want her to get married. Then he turns around and lets Tom King hitch Batman and Catwoman. He hired Chelsea for Vertigo.
Didio has fucked up Doomsday Clock in at least two ways. First by putting Bendis (lol at hiring Bendis) on Action Comics and now with Heroes in Crisis.
Writers like Johns and Morrison write shit that people actually want to read. I can tolerate King, Didio, and even Bendis so long as they don't fuck with things that are actually good.
Judd Winick brought Jason back, Morrison wrote him, but Scott Lobdell has had creative control of Jason for like eight years now and refuses to do anything compelling with him.Johns did have at least one problem, i can understand not liking Batman but he wrote him like such a raging asshole (Saying to Superman he only) but he wrote him really Ooc and Morrison helped in making Jason Todd an edgelord for years
If you want an older Marvel comic, I suggest Strikeforce Morituri. It's about an alien invasion that hits earth and there's a thing called Morituri Process that can give you powers to fight the aliens. The only problem is that you only get a year to live. These likable characters have to handle this cruel fact, yet also are treated like celebrities for their heroism.Hey does anyone know any good recommendations for comics especially stuff not from Marvel and DC or older stuff from the two?
Chuck Wendig, the New York Times-bestselling author of the Star Wars: Aftermath series of novels, has been fired by Marvel Entertainment, he said on Twitter Friday. That leaves the fate of a number of previously announced Star Warsprojects he was attached to left uncertain as a result.
In a series of tweets, Wendig, who was working on both the five-issue Shadow of Vader mini-series and an additional, as-yet-unannounced Star Wars series for the publisher, revealed that he had been fired by Marvel in the middle of his work on the titles because, in his words, “of the negativity and vulgarity that my tweets bring. Seriously, that’s what Mark [Paniccia], the editor said. It was too much vulgarity, too much negativity on my part.”
Previously, Wendig had written Hyperion and an adaptation of Star Wars: The Force Awakens for Marvel.
Wendig has been outspoken about his liberal political views on Twitter. On Oct. 7, he drew the attention of well-known conservative personalities such as Ben Shapiro and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza with a series of tweets surrounding the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who had been accused of sexual assault. In one tweet, which he later deleted because he said it had become a "funnel for harassment," he wrote, "Winter is coming, you callous fucknecks, you prolapsed assholes, you grotesque monsters, you racists and rapists and wretched abusers, you vengeful petty horrors."
Wendig's firing comes three months Marvel parent company Disney fired James Gunn as director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 over old, offensive tweets that had been resurfaced by conservative personalities.
Wendig is no stranger to controversy within Star Wars fandom, with the writer being targeted by a vocal minority after introducing the franchise’s first canonically gay character in his 2015 novel Star Wars: Aftermath. His outspoken response to that pushback — calling those that complained “the shitty, oppressive, totalitarian Empire” — combined with his openness about discussing real-world politics on social media, made him a lightning rod within the more conservative elements of the property’s fanbase.
Marvel’s removal of Wendig comes a month after the publisher canceled the six-issue miniseries The Vision two months ahead of launch, with the creative team — which included another bestselling novelist, Chelsea Cain — only getting a few days’ notice, and little explanation as to why, beyond a change in publishing plans surrounding the characters being used in the series. Notably, Cain is as vocal about her politics, and equally visible as a target for rightwing trolls on social media, as Wendig, although that was not given as a reason for the series’ surprise cancellation.
Marvel Entertainment declined to comment.
I heard he was writing Vader comics so how was he fucking up before this great news?
I disagree on that last part, Todd has or was better with Bizarro and that Amazon from the less well known tribe (Bana Something) and his relationship with Bruce and Dick Grayson come to mind as having gotten betterJudd Winick brought Jason back, Morrison wrote him, but Scott Lobdell has had creative control of Jason for like eight years now and refuses to do anything compelling with him.
Wending went full exceptional individual screeching about how civility was letting the right eat Mexican babiesSounds like an actual firing, too, not one of those "You goofed but don't make a mess on the way out and we won't blackball you" deals.
Considering New 52 was hated by pretty much everyone who wasn't shilling for it, you were not alone. I wasn't following DC much at the time, but like almost everything DiDio does (like he's doing again with Rebirth now, after it was beloved for 2 years) was against fans' wishes and best interests and ended up feeding a lot of resentment.For like a year during college I really got into DC Comics, I think reading the /co/ me into it although I was reading in senior year. I loved the Mythology, I really loved how just huge the universe was and a goofy character could appear in a story and I’d find out that character has existed since the 50s.
One example would be in an Issue of Gotham City Sirens, the heroes (Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley) start a fighting The Joker, but it turns out it’s not the real Joker but a silly midget named Gaggy, a character who appeared only once in a Golden Age comic. I just loved that the good writers cared about the past, they did their homework.
Then New-52 came out and said “We’re rebooting DC”, going back to Issue 1 and Batman’s a young guy again and I sperged out, like all that free time I spent learning about silly fiction just got thrown in the trash.
How :autism: was I to act this way and were there others who felt similar? I remember chatting with the Comic Book Guy at my LCS and even then he made me feel silly. But since then I never bought another single issue and only picked up a few Tradebacks as a result. I even stopped reading /co/ but that’s also because Bronys and Tumblr killed that place.
