    Seriously, the dude is an art monster.

  • SolarSolar Registered User regular
    Del'Otto is an art messiah

    And I am so excited for Ends of the Earth. I think it is going to be pretty damn impressive, given what we have seen from Slott so far

    sigh, on one hand I miss having amazon prime because i never had to buy extra stuff just to get something I needed.
    On the other hand, with Prime I wouldn't have needed $23 worth of product to avoid paying $5 shipping on a $2 dollar item.

    And I wouldn't have taken that opportunity to order the Spider Island book. It looks pretty fun though. Iron Fist is on the cover with a spider bandana so I'm onboard with it already.

    Too bad they couldn't work a "bub" into there somewhere.

    It's weird, I felt Johnny was almost too frat boy in ASM. Not really that enjoyable for me.

    Johnny has been fratboy forever

  • AriviaArivia Registered User
    Eww. Give me back Hickman/Epting distinguished soldier Johnny Storm.

    huntresssig.jpg
  • SolarSolar Registered User regular
    I can see what Arivia is saying

    Johnny always was a frat boy, but in FF/F4 Hickman made him more adult and mature, a veteran soldier

    It feels like Slott is sort of only going half way there. Which is okay if you like Johnny like he was, but not if you weren't really a fan.

  • AriviaArivia Registered User
    Yeah. I'm pretty much only picking up these two issues to see how this plot thread out of FF ties up, and it just seems weird.

  • JyrenBJyrenB Registered User regular
    The thing I've always liked about Johnny is right in the issue, though. The way he can just go from ridiculous to serious in a second. Even Hickman's run he was pretty wild and frat-boy crazy at times, but he always goes into serious mode when it's time.

    Johnny is a character who goes in cycles. Just when one writer has made him mature another will revert him back to being a jerkass to start his character development over from the scratch. Rinse & repeat. It's the same for Iceman.

  • Robos A Go GoRobos A Go Go Registered User regular
    I thought that Slott was trying to show that Johnny has regressed to hide from the trauma of what happened in the Negative Zone.

  • HenslerHensler Registered User regular
    I think being with Pete does play up Johnny's fratboy-ness, though. He can be super serious when the world is still about to end, but Peter's like his little brother and they're a bit immature with each other ("Here, hold my Annhilus.")

  • BlankzillaBlankzilla The Year 198X Being Xtreme to the MaxxRegistered User regular
    I thought that Slott was trying to show that Johnny has regressed to hide from the trauma of what happened in the Negative Zone.
    Except he straight up does the opposite of that what with Peter saying "Ah yeah, he is super serious and soldier-esque sometimes now."

    Johnny never regressed, even in Hickman's FF he was being classic Johnny, although maybe to a lesser extent due to the circumstances of the stories Hickman told.

  • FuruFuru Registered User regular
    I demand he be super serious and no fun at all forever

    but no really the last ASM issue was awesome

    I had no idea. I don't follow comics that closely. I still find the joke pretty funny, and it has nothing to do with gender at all, so that's hardly something that's relevant. Shadowlands Daredevil was a grade A douchebag at times.

    Also, the images got cross-posted to this topic by accident. I meant to put them in the awesome images thread. Teaches me to have two windows on the same site open at once.

    Yeah, I can't say enough positive stuff about Slott's run on ASM. I think it's going to go down as one of the best.

    I love proactive Peter.

    Are we allowed to talk about Scarlett Spider in here? I've been quietly reading it but haven't been too impressed until this most recent issue. They've started to build a supporting cast around Kaine which is making it feel more like a story worth telling. The dynamic of things actually reminds me a bit of Daredevil.

    It's definitely not the best book out on the shelves but it has potential.

    I'm picking it up and I feel the same way. It feels like it could really go somewhere, or they could hang onto the 'angrier Spiderman' vibe too much and not let it be unique.

    I agree with the bit about potential, but I can actually see the momentum they're building taking Cain's character to the places that we want him to go. It's a good direction, and I don't think they're going to keep the "angry" spider-man as a crutch for his character for much longer.

    If you can't beat them, arrange to have them beaten in your presence.

    I've actually liked SS since the beginning, as the angle of being welcomed in the city, and then having to dial back the violence is an interesting idea. Instead of being the too violent hero who scares people, the city is kind of acting the way the Marvel universe should have by now in regards to heroes, almost like the old DC way the people liked the heroes.

    And I'm glad Yost made a point to have Kaine crash and burn in terms of realizing Houston isn't close to Manhattan in terms of skyscraper webswinging, and has to adapt. Scarlet Spider-Mobile ho!

    from the sound of things i should pick up the scarlet spider trade when it's out

  • TexiKenTexiKen knowing me knowing Yule a Partridge in a Pear TreeRegistered User regular
    I think it's actually been better than Venom has been recently, at least since Venom beat up Captain America with simple symbiote arrows.

    Really? Better than Venom/Hulk Spirit of Vengance?

    Scarlet is really good, and I think it's building a stronger supporting cast for Kaine than Venom has for Flash.

    The Spider-Man line is firing on all cylinders currently.

    Avengers and New Avengers haven't been bad, but they haven't been good either. Gischler's X-Men is complete 'meh'.

    That's all I got.
