"We felt like the character of Eiling has gotten away from who he was in the '80s, who was this master manipulator. We thought of him as Captain Kirk gone bad. Instead, I feel like he's become this blustering, angry general determined to save the country at all cost. So he'd become more of a Thunderbolt Ross kind of character. And I actually like Thunderbolt Ross in the Hulk, but it wasn't ever who Eiling was. So this allowed us to nuance Eiling back to the kind of character he was." - Greg Weisman

In the comments to these weekly posts (and only these posts), it's your chance to go as off topic as you like. Talk about non-comics stuff, thread derail, and just generally chat amongst yourselves.

Thursday is Star Wars Day (May the Fourth, and all that) any plans to celebrate? I've just discovered that Acker and Blacker are releasing a special Star wars book launch concert in aid of pro bono law firm Public Counsel on the day itself, so that should be fun.

In other, coincidental, battles against evil empires, POTUS Mk45 has announced that A) The job is harder than he expected and B) He'd have gotten away with it if it weren't for that meddling, archaic Constitution and it's system of checks and balances! Oh, and he also ended an interview because he was asked question about the wiretapping allegations that he had brought up in one of his more obscure rants.

Brexit continues to be a fun game for 27 players, and a crappy one for the other one, as acrimony and bitterness already the order of the day.

The UK General Election campaign continues to be a party that no one wants to attend and has featured some breathtakingly bad PR from pretty much everyone. My personal favourite being Theresa May going door to door in Scotland surrounded by press, and no one answering the door, apart from one couple of saved her the bother of trying by calling "No, thank you", as she walked past.

France heads to the Presidentila polls again for the final vote and, whilst it may look like Le Pen isn't getting in, the same might be have been said about other far-right-wing leaders of democratic societies the past couple of years, so please do exercise your constitutional right to vote.

In non-political news, a tweet about a Chinese lesbian couple getting married and become the world's richest married couple turned out to be a hoax (They were actually members of a Korean pop group), which is a shame, but it was fun whilst it went viral, and the degree of support it gained was refreshing.

Oh, and in terms of reminding us of our true size in relation to the universe, NASA's Cassini probe is nearing it's end, as the plucky little probe is darting in and out of Saturn's rings a total of 22 times as part of it's Grand Finale, before reaching the end of it's 20 year mission, and the images it's send back are breathtaking.

Selections from MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS are hard, since the stories were 8 pages each (with an exception for WEAPON X). Anyway, here are two pages from one part of a Ghost Rider/Typhoid Mary story.

Trigger warning for misogyny and misandry.

The war between the sexes. Literally! )

For my selected highlights, check below )


Sonny Liew has 6 nominations in total. I'm pleased for John Allison to be nominated again, and to see Thor being nominated as best ongoing.

And I've now had retrospective dinner with an Eisner nominee; hopefully it can be with an Eisner winner.
