Some villains're matter-of-fact in their performance.

They've got brand and ambition.

They've of course got ego too, but it's not grandiose- it's simply stated.

The Fox's Mister Smile, in Dean Haspiel and Mark Waid's second run on the Archie character, was one like that.

The way he introduced himself evinced that. )

The Fox #3, by Dean Haspiel and Mark Waid

"It’s a cross between Apocalypse Now and The Island of Lost Souls, or The Island of Dr. Moreau. But really, it was my own personal pitch of what would happen if John Carter, Conan, The Shadow, Doc Savage, and Green Hornet were in a story together." -- Dean Haspiel

The Fox #2, by Dean Haspiel and Mark Waid

"We basically see him as a post-coital Peter Parker." -- Dean Haspiel

The Fox #1, by Dean Haspiel and Mark Waid

"In 2007, Mark [Waid]'s good friend/collaborator/artist, Mike Wieringo had just passed away at too young an age and we made a vow in the lobby of the Baltimore Comic-Con hotel to work together. There were several attempts to sell ideas to no avail, but when the opportunity to work on The Fox arose, I asked Mark if he would script my silly pictures and he gladly obliged." -- Dean Haspiel

Fairly late Spidey anniversary post

Hey guys. Its my first post here, and I'm glad to join this site. This site really helped me find a lot of awesome books to collect and read as well as being, alongside Linkara's videos and my growing dislike towards the fairly misogynistic actions of Joe Quesada and Dan DiDio, one of the major causes of my growth into a full fledged feminist (though I still think there should be a universal term to describe being against all forms of discrimination and for all around equal rights). Had it not been for this site, I wouldn't of gotten Hawkeye's first issue or bought Stephanie Brown's Batgirl trades, the former now being the only thing on my pull list thanks to this AvX nonsense (though the Marvel Now books are going to be added, and I'm thinking of adding Agent Venom to that) while the latter being what got me into collecting Bat Books, and books from the larger DCU. Still to get anything from the DCnU though, but I've preordered Court of Owls TPB and depending on if I like it 'll see about collecting Batman and Nightwing. Kinda wish Tim had his own series right now though because I can't find any of his trades anywhere.

Anyhow, unrelated to that, Spider-Man's 50th anniversary has came and gone, and unfortunately I was still waiting to join before then, but I wanted to post some scans. Someone else already did this, but mostly focused on Alpha. As I developed mixed feelings for him (his annoying, irritating, and unneeded, but he got some amusing moments), I'm going to focus on the rest of the book. So, here's a handful of scans from Amazing Spider-Man #692. There's 58 pages in the comic including the backup stories, but since they're not connected I'll only post four pages.

So, after being introduced to Andrew Maguire where he's shown as being just like Peter when he was a kid (minus the science nerd thing and caring parental figures), we cut to Peter's science demonstration where, apparently, he thought it would be a wonderful idea to harness cosmic energy, Dock Ock in Spider-Man 2 style. Only for things to fail. Badly.

Spider-Girl #1 - Four Shadowing

One more reason to check out this fine book is the back-up story in which Gil Corazon goes to the Baxter Building to interview the Fantastic Four with very young (and cute) in tow. Here's a couple of pages.
