Scanners out people, lets see if we can get some action up in here.

the letters page continues to break my heart too, 3 straight issues of people pulled through depression and assorted other crises. it's a rare book that has that kind of reach.

Saga 36 works the funny bone and the heartstrings

    I'd actually just PM'd The Geebs to find out if there had been some official reason that the MotWs had ended, to be told that it was just lack of people making them. That had me thinking about how to kickstart them again, and here we are! ^_^

    as far as the kickstarting goes:



    i made this after Munkus said the other day the only thing he came to GV for was the MOTW thread. made me kinda depressed.

    thing is the superhero thread has more traffic and more cachet, so if you want to reap a stack of awesomes for your scan that's the place to post it. it also moves too fast and takes in too much content though, so if you just wanna talk about cool stuff you've read this week it's not the best place.

    i tend not to pick up my comics till Saturday, which means a late start getting this up, so if anyone else wants to go in first, be my guest. otherwise I'm gonna keep trying to plug away because I reckon this is GVs best chance of survival.

    I've been reading comics in batches not necessarily on release days and lumping them together in the case of East of West, plus there just haven't been a lot of MOTW worthy stuff, but hopefully with Rebirth DC there will be something to post.

    Marvel's just not doing much for me these days, especially after reading up on Standoff.

    I really, really wish that Megatron's heel-face turn had been predicated on something more substantial than Dark Cybertron. The introspective, post-war, kind of Ulysses meets Twilight Zone take on Megatron is absolutely brilliant, but the way we got to this point feels kind of compressed when you're talking about robots with lifespans that number in the millions of years.

    My problem was that I've had to cut way back on consumption lately, and didn't have any MotW to start my own thread with. :lol:

    I loved the MotW threads, because they introduced me to a lot of titles I might have otherwise missed. Saga, Prophet, and I think, Rat Queens, were all titles that were first brought to my attention via MotW threads.

    Dived in a little to my stack, Doctor Strange:The Last Days of Magic. ( This is making me think I've missed some issues of Doc but we'll see)

    Hopefully I'll get a scan later, but
    Mahatma Doom!

    edit: Oh and Squirrel Girl was downright amazing, I don't even know how a scan would do it justice, it was Choose your own Adventure!

    Scanner not working, and only shot of it I can find.
    Cuts off top half so the rest is
    When Doom was travelling, he came across a set of monks deep in the mountains, he tricked them into teaching them everything he knew, then slaughtered them all.
    Or so he thought, one monk survived, and felt endless guilt/shame for giving even more power to Doom.

    Dark Cyberton has been MTMTE's only misfire. It's powered back out of it however. RiD has gone massively downhill to the point I'm more buying it out of habit now. Sins of the Wreckers looks beautiful but it's trying a bit hard to be edgy and it's just not really gelling for me.
