thanks for doing the podcast Joe, Tucker, Chris, and Matt.

That .mp3 was only 14 minutes long both times I downloaded it.

You guys did a Marvel podcast without talking about either Kieron Gillen's Journey Into Mystery or Jonathan Hickman's Fantastic Four? You guys are doing yourselves a severe disservice if you haven't been reading them; JIM for one was the best Big Two title being published, and is probably one of the best books Marvel has ever done. I'm serious, that shit approaches Alan Moore on Swamp Things levels of great, go read it (and basically anything else Gillen does, really).

I'd love to hear Tucker expound on Gillen's stuff sometime... I know he's liked some of it. It's kind of a hole for me, to be honest; something I haven't sampled. Hickman, on the other hand... I sort of severely disliked S.H.I.E.L.D. back in the day, enough so to put me off really diving into his longer runs, which I've observed second-hand through podcasts like Silence! (for example), enough to confirm that it's probably not anything in my wheelhouse...

I find some of what Gillen does interesting, mostly when he's off messing with side stuff, the things where he seems to be left alone. He works with some of the worst artists in existence though, it makes it difficult to even try a lot of the time. Mystery is a blind spot, but I've heard good things. I've got no use for Hickman whatsoever. He couldn't write a competent grocery list.

aaaagh, link it in the main entry or my RSS won't pick it up in my podcatcher (I know, poor me; I'll download it directly like a sucker. Keep on keeping on, men)

Factual opinion: the only Marvel comics that have any worth are those drawn and conceptualized by Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko.

chris claremont x men hollurrrrr

My reaction to reading the preview pages of Wolverine MAX surprised me: I wasn't only unimpressed and bored, but I felt like I could write something better, like it's admittedly shallow edict: "your favorite X-Man done the way you wanted to see him – in a no-holds-barred MAX series!" was being utterly unfulfilled. I could dream up opening pages while drunk that would be more entertaining to read.

Everything Marvel MAX that isn't written by Garth Ennis is a failure. A fucking failure.
