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?

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 Everything I've seen recently seems to show it's pretty outdated and doomed to fall apart.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.

'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.

I like it.

About my buying habits, pretty much the same as you. I have a pull list of books I really like and want to support, but the rest I get from the hubs.

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.

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. That pic is one of the least hype I saved. In just 5 fucking issues. It's insane.

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.

>>43059
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.

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.

Is there a site or even a program that updates you when a new comic series you are reading is released?
