Post a joke from this year's comic, it's a massive offense. Show one from the 80s? All in good fun. Reagan as snake-man, clearly a joke. Mockingbird in a t-shirt that says feminist, comics are ruined. -- Nick Spencer













"...or do I? After all -- I have to get out of here, don't I? I have to be there at the capitol. According to the vision -- which means I did guess it right."

By and large, this is event comics done right. It's been one hell of a rollercoaster.

But regarding Widow, let's start the betting pool on her return:

A. Dead for many years then, boom, resurrection by some nostalgic writer who's a kid now!
B. Dead for a few years then, boom, resurrection!
C. Dead for about a year then, boom, resurrection in time for Infinity War synergy!
D. Back by the end of the storyline.
E. She's not really dead.

Place yer bets!

Sorrentino is not very good at drawing action sequences, but Cap's face when Spider-Man breaks his shield... One of the moments of the year.

Rest in pieces, Black WIdow. I wish that would mean she gets replaced by Red Widow after Secret Empire. But since she's (1) an iconic old character who (2) is in movies and (3) died in an event involving a cosmic cube, I won't hold my breath.

The older I get the weirder and weirder the whole "no killing/killers are dirty" thing is to me.

This isn't some mugger, its not him engaging in random super heroics. That man is a literal fascist dictator who took over the country in am armed coup. How is there any moral problem with killing him in armed combat at all? How is letting him live "heroic" or noble?

Seems like a good event, but that moment was weird and dissonant to me.

Well "Snake Reagan" is considered to be one of the most embarrassing moments in CA history so I really don't know if that's the standard you want to be holding yourself up against, Nick.

The fact that people these days are more likely to say that they find something is offensive doesn't mean that it WASN'T offensive, or that they wouldn't have done in the past, it's just that that there wasn't as easy a means of expressing that the way there is now and, perhaps, more of an expectation to just two the line.

Sam you don't deserve that last page you spent your entire run as Cap bitching about how miserable you were that everyone hated you as Cap, than you complained further crying back to your brother and whine how nothing was going your way fighting HYDRA.

You are perhaps one of the worst Captain America to don the costume, even the speech you gave in your book is dreadful.

Face it you need a better writer and you'll only sink lower with a hack like Spencer.

The expression on Not-Steve's face as Miles breaks his shield is priceless.

Take it from a guy from a family whose extended family is 98% conservative Republicans: Reagan mockery isn't what they'd call good fun. At best, it's eye-roll worthy.

(Though even the worst anti-Reagan comedy never reached the hatred of Margaret Thatcher in comics, at least from what I've seen.)

I am so upset about Widow. Part of my college thesis this year involved her too....
