Re: New Marvel Conan

Just got the email blast from Marvel. This is happening. The calendar turned out to effectively be a "soft launch" promotion. Fantastic news. And of course for classic reprints you know what I'd like to see next...

Re: MARVEL MASTERWORKS ANNOUNCEMENT FOR AUGUST 2018

My only complaint is the cover.  I think the milestone #200 would have been more appropriate. I agree that #202 is an odd choice. I would've gone with #197 by Wightson myself, it's easily the best of the bunch. I would have gone with #200 out of pure self-interest. One of my best friends growing up...

My favorite utterly incorrect background drawing was in an issue of Master of Kung Fu by Gulacy that depicted the mountainous shores of South Florida.

Re: Sad News About Stan

I'll leave the thread live, but I'll lock it for further comment.  On the one hand, it's easy to believe allegations like this generally because it's the kind of thing that happens. No sense in denying that.  On the other hand, we have no idea that this specific allegation actually happened when we ...

Re: MMW Preview Page Updates (Plus Rescheduling): MTIO Vol. 3/MTU Vol. 3

The long and short of it is that Doc Savage is guaranteed to appear in two upcoming Masterworks but there's no guarantee he'll appear in the Epic volumes. I suspect that depends mostly on whether or not the long-promised Doc Savage film ever gets made; if it does and it's a hit the chances of Marve...

Re: Holiday hauls

I didn't get any comics but I did get my nephew the first Star Wars TPB (Aaron/Cassaday) and my 21-year-old niece The Watchmen (hardcover, natch). I got a niece-in-law the Marvel Women of Power coloring book. She's into those things.

Re: What are you reading?

I'm still reading Bronze Age Teen Titans Omnibus. For current Marvel, I'm catching up on Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows, X-Men: Gold/Blue, Jean Grey, and finishing Tom King's Vision. 

I laid off new Star Wars comics for a while, but I'll be picking those back up soon.

A WORD FOR THE WISE:  The license is for these Masterworks printings and these Masterworks printings only. If readers want these stories, it's now or never. And for those curious, the Doc Savage issues will be in both the print and digital editions.  Well, if memory doesn't fail me, somebody, Marve...

MMW Preview Page Updates (Plus Rescheduling): MTIO Vol. 3/MTU Vol. 3

Don't worry, this is mostly good news on Christmas. But first the bad news: MTIO Masterworks Vol. 3 is going to slip a little over a month to ship instead on March 21, 2018. (MTU Masterworks Vol. 3 remains the same ship date on May 9, 2018.) Just a scheduling issue, nothing to be worried about other...

Re: Now that the Fantastic Four are back...

Weren't those Eternal one-shots really bad though? And were there even any good issues of Fantastic Four Unlimited? it's a long shot but we did get an expanded Squadron Supreme Omnibus along the same lines a few years ago but that also coincided with a new ongoing series for them.  I can't remember...

Re: Disney to buy 21st Century Fox?

Please don't make me close this thread. This idea that Disney is going to go super-right wing because they've bought Fox assets is 100% unfounded speculation and has opened up a direction in this thread that is getting nasty. Predictable. Get back on topic or I'll close it.

Re: Conan in Marvel 2018 Calendar

... actually what was the image for the calendar? Where is it from? It's from the 1975 Marvel calendar.  EVERY image in the 2018 calendar is from the 1975 calendar.  The 2018 calendar is a straight-up reprint of 1975, with the dates changed.  I'm surprised nobody's noticed/mentioned this yet.
