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;

Genre savvy common sense )

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

"Season 1" of Paul Cornell and Alan Davis's Wolverine run concludes...

"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? )

"I like to think of The Avengers as what [Wolverine] does when he's not in his own series. This is the central point for him. His own title is where big stuff should happen to him. That that hasn't always happened is just an accident of history, because he got his own title late. "The Death of Captain America" didn't happen in The Avengers." -- Paul Cornell

"I think he's one of those rare comics characters who's been built on and built on, and the majority of what's been done with him has been welcomed and the layers have stayed put, meaning he's got this unusual depth and history." -- Paul Cornell

"It's a really strange feeling to be on a comic that's doing fine, in no danger of cancellation." -- Paul Cornell, formerly of SAUCER COUNTRY, CAPTAIN BRITAIN AND MI13, and KNIGHT AND SQUIRE

Storm and Wolverine visit the "excruciatingly liberal nation of Wakanda"...

"The plan is lots of short, action, and character emotion-packed arcs, that when you put them back-to-back, build to something bigger. It's me doing my mainstream high-power super hero comic. I've never really done it." -- Paul Cornell

'I'm an enormous fan of Chris Claremont. I think his contribution to comics is just gigantic, that these days he's enormously undervalued, to a degree that just staggers me. I'll be drawing on the love of this character I felt from my childhood, and that means drawing on my own inner Claremont.'

"I think [Wolverine's] the ultimate adult, someone who's gained an impossible amount of experience, and has finally allowed himself to mature because of it. He's the superhero I'd most trust with my child." -- Paul Cornell
