"I’ve got a real soft spot for Quasar. I was a big fan of the original Mark Gruenwald run as a kid, and my entire Cap run so far has been pretty much a love song to Gruenwald’s run on that character." -- Nick Spencer

thanekos: Yoshikage Kira as Kosaku Kawajiri, after the second arrow. (Default)
[personal profile] thanekos
His father's from Earth. His father's from Ektae.

He got a package from his Earth dad on the first day of the every-seven-years week the two worlds merged.

It told him why he'd never known either of his parents by anything other than repute, and then asked him to do something- take their ashes to the place on Ektae they'd first met, and scatter them.

So he illegally crossed the opening between the worlds and got caught by the authorities on the other side.

He used his one phone call to call one of Ektae's hardest criminals- someone he'd punched in the face once.

Some bad men came and picked him up. When he found out he wasn't going to get to meet the man he wanted to in person, he crashed their car and walked away from the wreckage.

He made his way to a bar, where he had a drink.

Then he looked around. )

The next issue of the series, issue #502 coming later this month, promises the death of one core Avenger- Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye, Yellowjacket or Wasp, a promise that has upset many fans. But is Bendis, with his new “language” for the Avengers, simply trying to redefine the core- and core members- of the Avengers? “No, they’re two different things,” he answers. “The story that’s being told now is about the Avengers as they exist now- the mistakes they’ve made and problems that they’ve had when they’re playing a game so dramatic, that’s so high stakes and those stakes will cost them everything. This is a very dangerous game, which is a given for all superhero comics, and we’re showing how that backfires. I think a lot of people realize that what’s happening is happening, no dream or fake out story, and it’s a little upsetting. This isn’t some hollow event. Things are happening. But we’re not doing it to shock, though there are certainly shocking parts to it. Something like this doesn’t often happen on this level.” - Article interview with Brian Michael Bendis

Fact: One of the best series that came out in 2016 was Chelsea Cain's Mockingbird
There were a lot of good things about Mockingbird. For one, the structure of the first story. If readers read #1 first and #5 last, it didn't matter what order they read #2, #3 and #4. That's new for me and a bit exciting. The story was also told from Bobbi's point of view, so that readers were not presented with a literal and accurate reflection of what happened, but a version of the truth that was filtered by Bobbi's own perceptions, much like what Fraction and Aja's Hawkeye run did with Clint.
Fact: One of the best series that came out in 2014 was Matt Fraction and Annie Wu's Hawkeye. Not just because of the elegant one page story that appeared in #20. And not just because the Brian Wilson story was captivating and heartbreaking and is probably my favourite single issue story.. And not even because they put in that meme about the girl who started a house fire. It's quick, fun and surprisingly emotional storytelling.
News: After two issues, it looks like Kelly Thompson has managed to combine the good bits from both of those books in her new Hawkeye series.
