"It’s a recipe for conflict, and what we end up with is a conflict between two different types of British comics: dystopian dark satire and bright, sunny whimsy." -- Al Ewing

"I have a fondness for Ultron. Because he's so changeable - he's a character who comes in iterations, each of which is slightly different to the last, ranging from cold and emotionless to a very human insanity - you can really do what you like with him without it being 'out of character'. There've been good Ultrons, mad Ultrons, sad Ultrons, and last time I wrote him I was essentially doing Daleks and Cybermen. This is actually my first time writing the actual Big Boss Ultron himself, and... hopefully my version fits in with the great tapestry of Ultrons through the years. I've not actually seen what Alan Davis's done with him yet, but I described Ultron in the plot as 'very glam', so we'll see." -- Al Ewing

I have not posted here in quite a long time....but I think we need more Psylocke up in here. (By the way, she's met the Classic X-Men from the future right?)

Here is part of an odd story from X-Men Annual #11. Also be warned...it's Claremont so expect plenty of wordy dialogue.

From the preview at comicbookresources



PART 1 OF 3 – THE START OF A THREE-PART AVENGERS EVENT!

Story by Al Ewing / Art by Alan Davis, Mark Farmer

500 years into the future, Ultron has won. Humanity is all but extinct - dead or enslaved by the Ultron Singularity.

Now, seven Avengers are brought through time by Doctor Doom to battle the machine god for the fate of the cosmos… or die trying!

You had me at 'Alan Davis' )

Zombies... Miracleman killing his former sidekick... Identity Crisis... it's been a fairly harrowing series of postings lately...

And whilst those have, for the most part, been good powerful stories... more or less.... well... less in a couple of cases IMHO, but that's neither here nor there, it's time for another change of pace.

Alan Davis is akin to comfort food for me, his art is sleek and vaguely cartoony in the best sense, and coupled with the right writer (Chris Claremont, Mike W. Barr or himself, amongst others) produces awesome results. I've posted New Mutants Annual #2 in the past, as well as X-Men Annual #10, but this remains a favourite)



Thos who saw my post earlier in the week will recognise the green guy, anyone who knows the New Mutants will know who the other guy is.

As two shapeshifting aliens set out to prove, once and for all that;

Warning: Contains more images than I've ever included in a single post before!

Question - What do Alex Ross, Alex Maleev, Sara Pichelli, Alan Davis, Pascal Campion, Pasqual Ferry, Joe Quinones, Simone Bianchi, Dave Dorman, Stan Sakai, Mike McKone, Dale Keown, Stephanie Hans, David Peterson, Mike Mayhew, Mike Deodato, Mark Brooks, John Tyler Christopher, Greg Land, John Cassady, Jenny Frison, Amanda Conner, Skottie Young and Bob McLeod have in common THIS WEEK?

Answer - They ALL have variant covers of Star Wars #1 coming out... and that's not even all of them!

The release of Star Wars #1 from Marvel Comics this week is perhaps the publishing coup of the year, and you certainly can't say that Marvel and Disney and Lucasfilm haven't gone all out with the covers!

This is the main release cover...



Which is fine, and classic, and apporpriate and all///

but that's not even scraping the surface )

The athleticism of Nightwing or Nightcrawler would be fun, though technically neither of those are powers, but skills they work very, very hard to perfect and I'm way too lazy to be able to keep that sort of physique up..

Teleportation would be pretty damned awesone, flight would be nearly as great and telekinesis can be amazingly versatile...

However... there are two powers I'd want to possess, and they reside in the same body...

Doug Ramsey always had, in his old appearance, two distinct super-powers, one was omnilingualism, and the other was that rarest of gifts;

I've actually been sort of torn on what to post the past couple of days since the same characters sort of fill multiple slots..


Favourite Male Character, Favourite Friendship, Character I would most want to bring back from the dead all sort of combined... (Look he was dead for so damn long (literal, actual DECADES) that I have a lot of "He's back?!?" inertia to overcome... I'll get there eventually). I should probably try harder to think of something new, and I may well do, but in the meantime, it's back to the old favourites.

Long time, or even relatively new readers of s_d should have no problem identifying who I mean...



The little mutant that could... and his slightly strange buddy! (and I'm STILL not sure which is which)

Those adorable dorks - Cypher and Warlock )

I finally saw X-MEN:: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. I thought it was amazing all around, although it was a little vague about Past-Magneto's plans. Dropping a baseball stadium around the White House is somehow *good* for mutants? And there was the standard character amalgamation: Blink can create Illyana's teleportation discs and Sunspot is the Human Torch and Magma.
But was I the only one who though the Future Sentinels resembled the Alan Moore/Alan Davis creation...

"He's one of these super heroes who has actually had a character journey over his many decades of existence, and it's one that makes sense. Without his memories, he acted like a bit of a teenager. Now he knows who he is, and he's grown into this mature, responsible, tough guy." -- Paul Cornell

"I love Chris Claremont's work in general, and he did so many great things with Wolverine, including the Miller mini-series, him in the sewers of the Hellfire Club, his tenderness with Jean. An undercurrent then was how fast Chris was having a character that initially came over as an angry teenager grow up. And these days, in such great runs as Wolverine and the X-Men, he's come full circle, the most responsible adult in the face of Cyclops' angry rebel." -- Paul Cornell

Yesterday, to close 2013, I made a post featuring two guys (Well, a guy and an alien of indeterminate gender, but who made no objection when referred to as male by "his" friends) the extent of whose relationship is an interesting area.

So to start 2014, here's something for those who might enjoy two ladies enjoying each other's company.

Alan Davis... What, that's not enough to get you to click? )
