Let's say Marvel hires you tomorrow to fix the X-Men. (think DC Rebirth in response to the New 52)

In the current world of Marvel comics
  • Where should the X-Men -- and mutants -- be in the greater Marvel landscape? Any big picture ideas?
  • How many books (solo & team) should there be?
  • How many teams should there be in-universe?
  • What kind of writers / artists would you be hiring?

X-men should literally be if The Marvel universe was a picture in the top two corners and weaving down like an X and cross each other. There details in the center highlight the sa,e contention or connection they experience in knowing the,selves. And they meet as the martyr and fear that they as the manifestation of not accident/intention/superlative, or cosmic/radiation/alien, but of DNA/genetics. The uncontrollable that makes us different the heroic od of coping, not the perception of onself through the struggles of power and responsibility and loyalty and self madeness like Spider-Man. Not having to work through something that boxes you in that you box out of, not identityand category or the underdog and the chase. The youth and the dream. No the other, and perceiving yourself as it. not as outcast struggling out of categories inflated but perceived as normal, or always having had come from position of the other know going against a thr shelf that says you cannot self doubt anxiety Spiderman outcast.

The biological peripherals of the marvel universe that actually shape and hold the picture steady as well as influence it positively, by being the thing fluctuating even on a biological or even quantam level as in the dna itself. Just as they are mutants.

As they are like the literal interest but just as true in a misunderstanding they are that for fear a literal scapegoat or imagined evil for what is at the center that can't see the origin points fully at the far corners. A subject that haunts the x-men themselves. they face uncertainty that haunts individual heroes in personal crisis and isolation as collective but not always as community. As the gaze of the other but also as the realization of the other through activation or awakening of mutant powers, some handle that differently. Some become like nieztzhe and believe in an epitome or an uber for which they can strive like magneto others don't go through the extremes in process and life for the end or risk it either, instead knowing they have that future underway through a process like Socrates like Xavier.

Being the and building the constants and axioms and in a sense the shared world itself for those who have experienced.

They must always express that in their tie in to the big events they as flux have established or discovered a link or made known to either the reader or the world a way in which that uncertainty or unknown was apart of a building block or stability or heavilynfeatured aspect of the universe. Kind of like getting closer and closer to realizing your whole life is a pathos told by Wolverine's odyssey where the very realtynof that journey is questioned for Wolverine. Big events in Marvel should see that figure who has not only experienced the fluctuations of mutant ability and himself as the other in terms of animal and his journey in coping with, celebrating, and thriving with that, bit in terms of fluctuations in self awareness and transfiguration of self.

And even knowledge of that even being a thing that has happened to him. Come closer and progress. While leaving the idea of it as a future something that is as attainable as a future sought after in life. Like ones search for there roots and ones self understanding.

They should position the position of mutant truths becoming public, and experiment with the dominant or fixed point of view outside the nexus or climax being developed through this.

As well as the locus moving from the norm to the periphery itself as in not just emphasis but for the marvel universe itself.

So i read this weird manga many years ago and I've never been able to figure out what it was. I remember a few things, a convenience store robbery with a clerk watching porn, giant wresters with naked women climbing all over them, a character that grabs a censor bar and breaks it revealing an entire 2 pages worth of a close up set of boobs. No idea on title or anything. Any suggestions?

I would read 616 and ultimate. A lot of the charm of what happens in the continuity of the ultimate universe is how things twist in imagining out of the picture you have of what might happen from your knowledge of the original Marvel U. For instance how important of a character Gwen Stacy became in Ultimate Spiderman.

What do y'all think of the direct market system? Everything I've seen recently seems to show it's pretty outdated and doomed to fall apart. Particularly way shops have to gamble with their preorders and the way shops in general get fucked over except by trades but it's the preorders that determine what doesn't get cancelled.

On that note, is it really true that digital sales have a much smaller impact on what series make the cut? That seems ridiculous, is the digital market just too new to be dependable?

Also, do a lot of people here actually go to physical comic shops? I haven't been in one in years but my preference has always been for trades and online for stuff I'm impatient for. I can see how a lot of people have nostalgia for the shops but I don't think they'll exist in their current form for long. I always hear about how much comic shops are struggling and continuing just out of passion for the comics. Digital is just too convenient.

all the comic shops in my area closed up one by one over the years. it's unfortunate. I think in the future comics will eventually work on digital subscription basis. either for access to a publisher's entire library, a portion of it, or to currently running series. maybe a tiered system offering one or more of those setup. we're a ways off and the industry will resist it, but I think that's where we're headed. digital distribution and the death of serial print comics, though I think physical collected volumes will still be made.

I hear the Marvel app offers unlimited access to a huge portion of their older comics, with only newish stuff being pay by the issue.

For OP, I pirate all my comics. Sucks for the industry, but I do pay for merch for some of my favs, so they need to learn to be happy for whatever they get from my broke ass. If I ever get above the poverty line and have some free cash laying about, maybe I'll actually pay for some comics. Until then, piracy is the new opiate of the poor masses. I just need free entertainment to keep me from realizing I'm alive between shifts at work.

'Been reading Gantz G. So far I don't know know how it fits chronologically but it tells the story of some high schoolers who got to play the hunting alien game with Gantz.

I like the tension mostly between the characters because it reminds me of my high school days, except less violent and over the top, but it's there.

Gantz' creator did the story for this one but it's another guy who draws it.

Fun Fact: (Maybe not a fact but it makes a lot sense). This Diversity thing is not for comic sales, it's for their movies. Marvel doesn't make dick in comic sales compared to movie sales. People are going to be more willing to see an apprentice of a different gender or ethnicity take over the matle than a new actor. I'm not huge into the movies but people would loose their shit if they just re cast Robert Downy Jr like it was nothing. Moneys in the movies, even if the comic sales take a hit it doesn't really matter in the long run to them.

I figure One Piece will be put under the spotlight now that Naruto is officially over. I was curious as to how many people in /616/ keep up with One Piece. Hopefully this thread will reach the limit like the Naruto thread did. If not, then no big deal. One Piece was being brought up in the Naruto general, as well as the party thread.

If you haven't fucked with it before, it's a pretty solid manga. The fights aren't really memorable, but the characters make up for everything. And SOME of the films were surprisingly good, unlike the Naruto films. However, reading One Piece is a terrible chore to do until Water 7 arc. Alabasta and Skypiea arc were ridiculously long and boring. I promise you that you'll be rewarded for your efforts once you reach Water 7.

Supposedly the manga is at a really good part, but I haven't read it since Sabo ate the Mera Mera no Mi. But I promised myself that I was marathon these chapters once the semester is over.

It wasn't that great until the end. I honestly don't remember if he has ever said it before, but Luffy putting aside his own dream is big. Wonder what is Luffy going to do once he discovers they've got Zeff and Sanji's hands hostage. Considering how dumb this manga gets at certain times, it's possible Judge himself or even one of the Vinsmoke kids is going to directly tell him the situation just because.

Need help guys!

I was never a fan of comics, i've only finished Sandman(wich is really fucking awesome) and some indie shit that i dont remember the name, but then the other day i stumbled into this marvelous mother fucker, and i've simply loved it, read all the issues and then "Elves" from the same universe, and i desperately need more.

Gotta admit, it was the first time google has let me down, searched for hours and didn't find something like that.

What im looking for exactly is this level of art (graphics? im not an expert), and the medieval fantasy setting (dwarves, elves, orcs, the whole pack)

I even asked this to two friends of mine who love comics, but to no avail. Help me out bros, please!

PS: not sure if i can make such a request in this board, but since i've seen nothing in the rules, im assuming it's good to go.

Ooh, recommend thread? I'll give it a shot.

Cerebus The Aardvark, by Dave Sim. 300 issues, culminating in the character's death, was the idea he started with, and he gets kudos for completing the mission, even if he completely lost his mind before the end. Started off as a Conan parody, moved into satire and gorgeous artwork, solid paced storytelling, shot off in some weird directions as the author's sanity started to show cracks.


Vinland Saga.

Bone. High fantasy, with protagonists from the wrong genre. Kind of like if Pogo Possum wandered into Lord Of The Rings, or Cheech Wizard was switched with Thomas Covenant.

Poison Elves.

Den (Richard Corben). Big bald naked guy kicking lizardmen with his cock and balls flapping about. Den kicks lizardmen and fucks their bitches, doesn't wear pants, what's not to like?

Hal Foster's original run on Prince Valiant.

Couldn't remember the name so relied on /616/'s knowhow to pick up the slack. Thanks Cornelius.
It's a comic from Hong Kong based loosely on Chinese myth or history or something. Be warned; it's over 100 issues. That put me off reading past the opening arc, but that still left a stronger impression than anything else I could name. Maybe I'll man up and try again someday.

This, Marvel has been shitty with only the occasional good arch or miniseries since the mid 90s. That is also when comics stopped looking like comics and instead became a mess of gradients and poor coloring choices vomited out by photoshop. The art styles also changed from slightly exaggerated and stylized fine arts figure drawing to crosshatched cartoons without bones, thanks to Liefeld, McFarlane and Jim Lee's popularity. I know Kirby and Ditko were wonky at times but after that you had technically excellent guys like John Buscema, Neal Adams, John Byrne and Romita Sr run the show and dictate what to aim for.

Giving Spiderman to Sony was probably even worse. Those movies were successful even before the capeshit craze took off.

I don't think bringing the original characters back will help much if they still keep the shitty writers around and keep the new legacy characters in the books to stink them up.

Took a look at Dragon for the first time in years.

Jesus, do people really still read this shit? Out of what, nostalgia?
Is Erik Larsen losing his shit like Frank Miller and Wally Wood did, or does he just not care anymore?

I stopped reading Dragon when he realised he could draw the regular book in his 24 hour comic style and people would still buy it.
Also the way he'd kill his female characters for shock value was starting to feel a bit Women In Fridges John Byrne creepy misogynist.
Plus his whole fight with Peter David made him look like an angry German kid freaking out while playing Call Of Duty.

But seriously, this is his dream job, supporting himself making the comic he created when he was a kid, if that doesn't float his boat enough to occasionally bother drawing a fucking background, or a fight that isn't a page of PUNCH PUNCH PUNCH panels, man, you need to try something new. Start a ministry, or become a tuna fisherman, or go to clown college.

See, it all started when Todd McFarlane challenged Peter David to a public debate over whether comics needed writers, which he lost, predictably, as McFarlane can barely string two words together, and had admitted to never reading books.

Erik Larsen tends to go crazy if anyone messes with his husbandu Todd, so he published a four page rant in Savage Dragon's letters page that, after you remove all the insults and repetition, boiled down to
A. He didn't think it was fair that Peter David brought notes to the debate, which he likened to bringing a gun to a knife fight,
B. He didn't like how PD had referred to the Image founders as "tykes", which he took as an attack on his MANHOOD as a husband and father, and
C. That Peter David was a plagiarist, BUT he neglected to specify what David was supposed to have plagiarised.

PD's response was to ask what he was supposed to have stolen, and Larsen wrote another four page rant, which, minus the insults and repetition, was basically NO. PD's response was more or less "No, really, what?", and Larsen writes ANOTHER four page REEEEE which, minus the insults and repetition, boiled down, was that Peter David had stolen a line of dialogue from Return Of The Sinister Six, about The Hulk "giving someone the finger" by flicking them unconscious with one finger. At which point Peter David was all "That's it, I'm talking to a retard, I'm outie." Not in so many words.

Afterwards Erik Larsen drew Peter David in Savage Dragon standing on a pile of shit, drew Peter David surrounded by flies being rude at a restaurant, and probably other crap I don't know because I stopped reading by then.

I think he also took shots at Neil Gaiman over the Angela and Miracleman lawsuits. I wish Todd and Erik would stop lying to themselves and their fans, divorce their beards, and go get married in Canada.

I think in the end Erik Larsen was reduced to calling Peter David a "Fat, overweight, balding ESSAYIST".

Stay classy, Erik.

His art always looked like when he inked it himself. He holds the pen in a really funky way and does not bother with details. He is one of those pencillers that need a really tight inker who isn't afraid to fill in details and add to the pencils instead of just taking away from them. Larsen's panel design and dynamic poses is what used to make his art palatable but he's slipping on all fronts.

I'd venture that's a little premature to say unless the entire manga's arcs are all incorporated into the single season of the anime. Wouldn't know, haven't read that one. The chance at a new HSoD series with the creator at the helm is definitely dead.

Interesting start, I was hoping to see more of the ozai loyalists from the free comic book day issue. And it seems Azula has been talking to her half sister in secret. Makes sense, she probably can't handle talking to Zuko or Ursa yet. Next issue should be out by the end of the month, and the final issue in april.

Good chapter, though I could do with less of the relationship drama. I just wanna know who Firelord Izumi's babymomma is idgaf about the angst. Everything else was interesting so I don't mind too much. Especially that ending, with the rest of the chapter you could tell what was gonna happen several pages before it did, but that came out of nowhere.

After watching Korra, I'm convince that he is good at world-building but suck at the story telling. Think Ed Greenwood or George Lucas.

>I figured he was gonna do something non-avatar for his next big project, but I didn't expect a graphic novel. I know he does the basic plot outline for the atla trilogy comics but his own dedicated graphic novel sounds very interesting. gonna suck waiting till 2017 though.
It's 2017 now. Where's the comic?
