Good freaking god, we're not even done with the SERPENT doing that. (And even Marvel seems to have forgotten that's still going on) And...didn't Thor just fight him off like, last month?

Yeah, yeah, Galactus wants a snack. All Reed Richards has to do is stick something funky in his face and he'll run away.

Yes, but Marvel clearly suffers from ADD and just has to have something big happening very shortly after the last event, because you know, god forbid the books were allowed to breathe and to develop that cohesive shared universe without the threat of the latest dumb fucker trying and failing to destroy or take over the world.

I sometimes think DC and Marvel should just put out monthly Galactus and Darkseid comics and save us all the trouble.

I'd quite like a 'your planet is fucked' crossover. Twelve issues of all the bad guys you'd ever want to see just trashing stuff. And no happy cheesy piece of crap ending with the heroes magically triumphing, just Galactus and Darkseid versus Godzilla and Cthulu at the end of the world.

Don't worry, we'll get someone who won't lose his focus writing it this time round. We'll put Warren Ellis on it and it'll be snippy and sarcastic and the best end of the world EVER.

Yeah, but do we need/want another rather obvious author-insert cynical, world weary yet vaguely heroic, character?

If it's the quality of the Authority, Stormwatch, Planetary, Desolation Jones, Transmet, the 'Ellisbolts' or FreakAngels, yes. I'd rather have a cynical Jenny Sparks type as our way into and lead through a story than changing the focus so often the book has no focus.

Didn't they try doing that with the Golden Age?

You mean the Heroic Age? And yeah, they did. But there's 'trying it' and giving it time to see whether or not it's a viable concept. Marvel didn't do the latter, because we were already seeing lots of hints for Fear Itself shortly after the Heroic Age stuff kicked off, with those godawful 'Do you fear..?' things they put out.

The fact of the matter is that they're too afraid to try and do really, really big stories in the regular books now, and those that are telling really, really big stories, like Hickman in either his FF or Secret Warriors work, don't receive nearly the amount of attention they should because they aren't the top dogs at Marvel. Every 'big' story these days is made into an event book with a billion and one tie-ins, whereas ten years back, Fear Itself or Secret Invasion, maybe even Civil War or House of M and World War Hulk? They would've been crossovers. Same problem, I know - a book gets a few months taken up by an event some might not be interested in, but at the very least, you wouldn't get this weird artificial inflation of sales because a book ties in to a huge event.

As it is.. Every Marvel book basically looks like it's treading water until the next big event.

I COULD be talking about both. You don't know.

...and now given this is Reed Richards my mind is going to very horrifying places indeed as to what he could stick in Galactus' face this time. THIS IS YOUR FAULT. IT'S YOU GOD SHOULD PUNISH, NOT ME.

That was a Galacu-bot... Galactus has learned well the lessons of Doom.
