My daughter and I are watching Wolverine and the X-Men on Netflix. I hate that they used Multiple Man as a villian-just like in that godforsaken X-Men 3.

They should just make a TV Show of X-Factor and give Madrox the attention he deserves.

I'd watch it. Madrox is my favorite comic character.

ohh, haven't read that one. wasn't it canned?

It's basically on hiatus. Hickman's too busy to continue it and Weaver can't do much without scripts. Apparently the next two are being done Marvel method on the side while Weaver is drawing the next Avengers arc.

It's really not a good book at all and has the worst of Hickman's writing tendencies.

Just decided to pick up the first TPB of Saga since it was $5 on Amazon. Its my first comic purchase of any kind in the last two years since I quit superhero comics cold turkey.

not shield man....not shield...

Shield was awesome. The reason I wouldn't recommend it is because Hickman seemingly abandoned the book, but thematically it was a precursor to what he is doing on Manhattan Projects. Weaver's art was great too.

SHIELD was an interesting idea but the main character might be the worst example of a mary sue I've ever seen, i.e. exhibits no personality of his own and intrinsically holds the solution to everyone's problems.

I'd still want to read how it ends but it's probably the worst of Hickman's stuff I've read.

Francesco Francavilla’s sold-out hit, The Black Beetle, will also be an ongoing series. Look for a continuation of mixed elements which, “Made old pulps so entertaining.” The next arc will feature a female villain.

When did Djurevic start working for Marvel again? Surprising considering that meltdown he had a while back.

That's not new news is it? I was under the impression it was an ongoing since it came back with the #0 issue collecting the story from Dark Horse Presents. Still worth celebrating I suppose. Can never have enough good comics.

ECCC: DC COMICS THE NEW 52 LIVE!
"Justice League of America" came up including the incoming backup in the series focusing on Martian Manhunter. "I always throught Superman would be the hardest character to write, but Martian Manhunter is like Superman with mind powers which is even harder," Kindt said. He explained that the backups will not only play off the main feature by Finch and Geoff Johns. It will also tell the Manhunter's origin in the New 52.

Snyder called "Batman" #19 and 20 "my ode to 'Batman: The Animated Series'" promising a fun adventure story before moving on to the next epic arc. He described the incoming 11-part story starting in #21 will be completely stand alone with no event launching from it. Snyder is looking forward to telling a stand alone tale akin to his "Black Mirror" serial.

Tynion talked about the future of Talon as in the wake of issue #5 the full cast has been set into place including regular villains. "This is where things really start ramping up...we're going to get more information on how the Court of Owls operates now, and we're going to meet the current grandmaster of the Court of Owls and understand that a bit more...there's a very major figure coming up that nobody is expecting, and it's going to be really cool," he said,

Higgins spoke on the incoming move to Chicago for Nighting, saying, "This is kind of our huge opus Nightwing story." He and artist Brett Booth "are looking to world build" making the Windy City its own history and mysteries as it relates to the superheroes of the DCU.

Lemire spoke about a number of his upcoming plans including what's next for "Green Arrow." He said that the popularity of The CW's "Arrow" allowed him to give the book a brand-new start to draw in new readers. The writer will be developing the world of the island that Oliver Queen lived on when he became Green Arrow, using it to introduce new villains like Komodo, but he'll also soon bring back many classic GA villains into the fold.

No talk of any Bat Crossovers. More news at the link above.

Sounds like no crossovers in the Batman world for the next year. That should be good for all the books to find their own grooves.

I would too if I had to work with Levitz. Brah is the blandest and most boring writer in comics. Hang up the typewriter please.

Reading through New 52 Batman and Robin for the first time. Currently at issue 10. What a flat out amazing book. Tomasi and Gleason are a fantastic team.

Just picked it up because of this post. Thanks. Too bad there isn't a hardcover though.

To me it's the best Bat book on the shelf. The writing is great and Gleason is consistently solid. The art on the Death of the Family tie-ins was the most grotesque and phenomenal interpretation of the Joker yet. I'm sad it's going away :(

So I've been reading Hickman FF and Marvel Cosmic. I stopped reading FF because the Inhumans show up and that seems to be ahead of where I am in the cosmic line. How far do I have to read into the cosmic line (like what events or series) before I catch up to the chronology of where FF is at? For reference I'm currently reading the first issue of Thanos Imperative.
