To be fair, though I love his stuff and am confident he will deliver on the big payoff, the buildup has been a bit slow at times and like Jedeye mentioned, the singular issues have less heart than FF did.Hickman is probably one of the best writers at marvel at the moment.
His books are overly ambitious and he tends to nail his landing. If you want an example of this read his Fantastic Four run. Probably one of the best runs on a book in comic book history might be up there with Simonsons run on Thor.
I found the Learning to Crawl part the most interesting story of ASM #1. Really interested in that one.
ASM #1 was a big ol bag of meh
Same here, I feel like they chose the perfect artist as well.
Ooh awesome. Great to see the first of hopefully many Image hardcover collections. Does anyone know if any more were solicited yet? What I'm really looking forward to reading are the hopefully-upcoming Hickman, Fraction, and Remender comics in hardcover collections. Edit: Oh, and definitely Manifest Destiny too. Edit 2: Oh, and Zero, obviously. Man, there are way too many good Image comics right now.
I'll very likely pick up Saga though. The library had the first trade and I remember enjoying it, but I don't think my mind was totally blown like with some people. Definitely good comics though, and I do like my oversized hardcovers.
Huh, Remender wrote a good funny issue in UA Annual.
Also had some mocking of current comic trends.
Damn, wonder who will be on it after? Remender would be my choice but I'd much rather see him on the main X-book to repair the damage Bendis has done. Charles Soule, maybe?
Silver Surfer is what they call, "schway." Issue 2 was schway. The art is schway.
Thank god for that. Home to some of the worst trolling and fanboy drivel I've ever seen on the internet.
A much needed change!
Maybe I'll actually frequent an actual comic book forum instead of hiding on GAF.
I posted 6 times the entire life of my account there, all pretty much on the same subject (one guess). Even lurking there just to read "discussions" was a chore.The X-board and Dan Slott's trolling were often entertaining but every single Scott Snyder thread devolved into Grant Morrison fanboys claiming Snyder was the worst Batman writer there has ever been.
picked up Cyan, 'bout to read it right nowAnyone get that Vertigo thing? Or Rai?
Was it Mighty Avengers? I think I saw that he was in thatWent to buy Silver Surfer #1 from the store today and they were all out
I seen Blade on the cover of a book today in the new releases. I can't for the life of me remember which one. Please someone help. I love Blade . I didn't know he existed in Marvel now.
Look on the bright side. I have a new avatar. lol
Screw Bendis though

From the CBR article.
"Unfortunately, what happened next was unacceptable -- so-called "fans" around the Internet, on various message boards and social media, including the CBR Forums, attacked Janelle personally, threatening her with rape and assault. These same "fans" found her e-mail, home address and other personal information, and used it to harass and terrorize her, including an attempted hacking of her bank account.
All over a comic book cover critique. Just think about that for a second."
Some people can't be serious. How you not look at yourself while doing any of those things and think "wow. I am a piece of shit"
