Hey guys, long time lurker thanks for everything so far. Can anyone please help me find this comic "My Friend Dahmer by Derf Backderf" I've been looking all over and can't find it. Not even bookz has it and they have everything.

Haven't really read Marvel in about 15 years, about the time they shut down the Marvel Knights imprint. I've only started reading comics at all again in the past few months.

Anyways I've never really read X-Men at all but have recently taken an interest in them. Read House of M and now I'm reading v4 of Uncanny, Extraordinary, and v2 of All New X-Men.

Too many directions to go from here, anyone have ideas which X-Men storylines are worth checking out?

Retire =/= no longer show up. That'd take another good few decades.
They'd also still be the focus of the relevant media outlets like film & vidya. Insofar as audiences want and producers provide.
I didn't even say shit about legacy heroes. These past few years have been dire. Because the original philosophy has been forgotten. It's fanboys raised on the neverending Marvel-U trying to write something they have no grasp of. You know who did? The generation who grew up on 60s Marvel. Claremont, Englehart, Simonson, Starlin, Stern; when they wrote stories with the given cast they became iconic, and when they made new characters they were NEW. They understood the appeal of growth and development and change and lo' and behold they all start dropping off and leaving for personal projects as the 80s drew to a close & their input became counterproductive. The New Mutants weren't Cyclops Jr, II-ceman, MiniBeast etc.. The constituent New warriors took pride in their originality. The Power Pack were so subtle their purpose still goes largely unrecognized. And now they're all obscure ephemera because they never did what they were bloody created to do.
>I guess this rests on whether you agree with me about who's buying marvel comics now
Oh I agree. I just think it's irrelevant. None of ANAD's phony pandering "change" means anything, especially when done by people so incompetent. It doesn't draw the new fans & just pisses off the old. I'm saying that, if executed well (which would take an entire creative overhaul to which "back to basics" meant more than the superficial), there's nothing to lose through the risk and frankly those old entrenched fans would be the most likely to love & support it.
>I don't know what to say, in theory you make sense, but then why aren't they changing things?
Thing's aren't bad enough yet. But we're close and getting ever-closer. Constant relaunches isn't working, emulating the movies isn't working, chasing the Tumblr market isn't working, they're burning through their bag of tricks and will eventually find it empty. As to your latter point about lasting appeal & resets, fans are given no choice in the matter. Heck, maybe I'm being too forceful in my assumptions and the solutions somewhere in the middle. Two parallel lines of comics where one moves in real time & the other stays the same, or dead characters people miss getting their own insular-canon spinoffs.

It's not like they had much choice though. You forget that in those times there was no Image comics, or Boom!, or Avatar, and if you wanted to work in comics you either had to starve with small, inconsequential publishers, starve by self-publishing, or work with the big two.
Can you blame today's writers for not creating new character, when they'll never be compensated for that work? Why not take that new idea and spin it in a comic from which they'll get royalties instead?

Good news for comics, bad news for the big two. I mean, even the current DC rebirth is fueled by the infusion of new characters that aren't new at all, they're from watchmen. I haven't read them, but they say they're good.. But then again, since they seem to hinge on these characters, once the plot gets resolved, the mystery is gone, they take part in the DCU, and the novelty wears off, will the quality remain the same? I think DC will suffer the same difficulty, as they have the same problem as Marvel, no writer finds it worthwhile to create new characters for them.

>None of ANAD's phony pandering "change" means anything, especially when done by people so incompetent. It doesn't draw the new fans & just pisses off the old

ANAD? But yeah, if you mean chasing the tumblr crowd, that was cringy.. But then again so is the crowd. At least now they have confirmation that they just want to complain about comics, not actually buy them.

>Two parallel lines of comics where one moves in real time & the other stays the same, or dead characters people miss getting their own insular-canon spinoffs.

That would be cool, but this faces the same problem as above, and recycling has a limit.. Then again, there's a shitload of obscure marvel characters to recycle, so I can see it work, with a bit of creativity.

As for insular-canon spinoffs, I love whatifs and elseworlds, and I really wish there were more of them. I think it's the ideal way to go.. Not only you pander to different tastes but each universe would be more free to go their own way. The DCU is the more equipped one to do it, they even have a map of their multiverse, but all they're getting out is those earth one specials that are fine, but they don't say anything really new.

That's a major factor, by all means. Roy Thomas had the mindset back in the 60s and is considered the template for a "Marvel writer". And the rise of Image et al. indeed contributed to a sheer drop-off in new IP. It's a matter of balance & compromise, and like I said would require an overhaul of business practice in the first place.
Probably worth mentioning that DC's a different beast entirely. The Marvel Age was an explicit retort to the way DC did things, both have since copied & traded so much that they're a lot less distinct. Still, at the foundation, those characters were made to be eternal and between the way the universe is structured & the workings of Crises that's fine. At least IMO.
>ANAD?
All-New All-Different. Name of the post-Secret Wars relauch. Which went full fucking throttle with that Tumblr-chasing so it gets used as a catch-all term for the general movement.

Here's the thing. Ewing's only been given C-list fanboy projects.
Bendis got noticed for his work on Daredevil & Ultimate Spider-Man. from that he landed Avengers, and then X-Men, and then Iron Man and GotG. His career's been a perpetual motion machine. He always gets sales because he's always on the sellers which gets him put on more sellers.
All it takes is giving Ewing that opportunity. Which probably wouldn't happen anyway because his entire creative ethos is anathema to Queseda, Alonso, Brevoot, etc..

I currently live in a country where it is hard to find English translated comic book and graphic novels. They do exist in some of the larger bookshops but they are extremely expensive because they are imported.

Does anyone have a reccomended online shop for comics/graphic novels/manga? Obviously there's Amazon, but is there anything that's not as well known that I could be using?

Many thanks!

Applauds! Marvel is now 2x times more worse then DC before rebooting their whole universe.
Iron-Man and X-men are fully raped by Brian Michael Bendis (the straight Ice-Man is now a faggot, and Iron-Man is fully fucked up)
Spider-Man is still getting raped by Dan Slott
Way to many SJW+LGBT propoganda, the stories are getting more and more disgusting...
R.I.P. MARVEL 1939-2009 (died since Disney had got their dirty hands on them)

I guess it was less wrapping up loose ends and more Len Wein's creating a New 52 version of Cable, one who is still basically an abusive drunk. He convinces Alec he has changed and that he wants to become the new Swamp Thing, saying he'll trade situations with Alec and Alec will get to go back to a human body while Cable runs the Green. Alec agrees, and betrayal happens soon after that. I forget how it ends but Alec gets his Swamp Thing body back somehow.

He was just in the seriously disappointing Howling Commandos book and he's going to join the Mercs for Money series

He's a creation of the Daniel Way Deadpool era; he had a mini series that was alright. Minor cult character that they haven't run into the ground

What do you guys think about the Terrifics? New series with Plastic Man, Metamorpho, Mr. Terrific, and Phantom Girl (though not the one from LoSH apparently). The new costumes were done by Doc Shaner, and he’ll be doing interiors after a few issues by Ivan Reis

I've only read Vote Loki & Longshot Saves The Marvel Universe, but enjoyed both. GWEN is judt as good at continuity & metawank as them but has them beat in terms of characters & story, seeing as it's an open-ended ongoing with an original cast & concept instead of a mini.
Also the art's beetus AF.

I'd have to know more about each character but appearance-wise there are some similarities. Some combo's like tanned/dark skin blonde hair contrast nicely and look good based on general appeal without the benefit of inspiration from another fictional source.

Marvel's X-23 closely resembles Fathom's Aspen. Whether she was "inspired" or not is hard to say, 30-40 years apart as they are, but then again there isn't that much room for customization on base human palettes unless you go nuts with the hair dye and body mods.
