Things that don’t have me excited about comics
I’m generally trying to renew my enthusiasm about the whole “reading comic books” thing, but these recent news items made me groan and groan and groan some more!
- One of these names just doesn’t belong here.
Rich Johnston reported that Cup O’ Joe at NYCC included news on “a major project from Marvel would feature the five architects of Marvel – Hickman, Brubaker, Aaron, Bendis and Fraction.”
Seriously, Jason Aaron?
Also … Jason Aaron?!
- I absolutely cannot believe that Jeph Loeb and Simone Bianchi are reuniting to resurrect the Wolverine vs. Sabertooth decaptitation feud.
That run on Wolverine was one of the worst things I have ever
writtenread. It started off terrible. Then it got worse. And then it managed to get even more awful. So of course, Marvel is bringing it back.
After Wolverine, Ultimates 3 and Ultimatum, Jeph Loeb went from being one of my absolute favorites to someone I will completely avoid. I’d drop a book if Jeph Loeb took over writing duties.
Is Marvel just completely out of ideas?
- Age of Apocalypse is coming back.
