Re: Their definitive work

Alan Moore             I'm surprised Promethea hasn't got a mention yet - I think that's his best work by far.

Re: 60s and Early 70s sexism is ridiculous

Anyone else feel like the way that Sue Richards, Jean Grey and Clea were treated back in the day is laughably awful? They're treated like they're utterly incompetent and serve as pinch hitters at best and mostly sit on the sidelines while the men take care of everything even when somebody as powerf...

Re: MARVEL MASTERWORKS ANNOUNCEMENT FOR JANUARY 2018!....PART ONE!!!

Just thumbed through this fantastic book, and I have to say, that Frank Miller would be a nobody without Klaus Janson, those Bob Brown pencilled issues inked by Janson are great and a harbinger of the FM & KJ Daredevil creative team. Before we get to Frank Miller, there is some great Janson-inked a...

Re: New Marvel Conan

... I wonder if this will lead to a Marvel Conan movie Marvel Studios are in the same sort of postion that Marvel Comics were in 1970, in that they've been going for about 10 years and their output is pretty much dominated by super-heroes. A Conan movie could help to diversify the Marvel films in t...

Re: Conan in Marvel 2018 Calendar

I am curious about something.  When something gets "discovered" or at least heavily theorized about here on the boards that Jeph and Cory know is in the works how difficult is it to not spill the beans? When Cory did the recent Comics Shenanigans podcast, he mentioned that all the licensing is hand...

Re: Artist Editions Discussion thread (IDW, Dark Horse, etc)

For anyone that doesn't frequent the Marvel board, today's big news is that Marvel have regained the Conan comics licence.

I bet Scott is already making plans for his first Conan AE   😋

Now all I ask is for a quarterly Conan the Barbarian Omnibus and a quarterly Savage a Sword of Conan Omnibus all in Amazing Corey Vision. See I don’t want too much. It's been a couple of hours since the announcement, so Roy should have finished writing the introductions by now. What are we waiting ...

deejayway: Great original page Mouse! Yours? Ha - I wish! But that Conan issue by Thomas & Buscema was pretty decent (certainly by What If? standards). Conan gets magically transported to modern-day New York, and teams up (in more ways than one) with a female taxi driver, who IIRC was based on Roy'...
