"I absolutely believe that people are looking for immersive content. The deep dive.

"So, to take something current for example, when the first issue of Secret Wars came out, there was a ton of chatter about how it wasn't accessible and it was the wrong way to start an event and people would 'tune out' -- and when the second issue came out, that it should have been the first issue because it was more accessible. Which is fine, but I disagreed because I wanted to convert the casual reader of one story into invested readers of the much bigger thing I had been doing.

"This has turned out to be correct as digital and trade sales of my earlier Avengers books have spiked as a result." - Jonathan Hickman

"It is worth noting that in the absence of Reed Richards Doom has placed himself in the role of Reed in terms of family. I think that is a key to understanding who Doom really is." - Jonathan Hickman

I really wanted to post this page when the issue came out but I figured it would be posted in the main one. It hasn't, so here it is.

"If you face a mirror, turn the lights off, say 'direct market' three times, and then turn the lights back on you'll see sad face Moebius. If you face a mirror, turn the lights off, say 'decompression' three times, and then turn the lights back on you'll see me burning money." - Jonathan Hickman

"There's a tendency for people to complain about crossovers that come out of nowhere, but this is something that Jonathan Hickman has been working towards ever since Marvel NOW! It's like a hundred issues of comics, plus stuff from other books and stuff that's been foreshadowed all over the place. This is a really beautiful and intricately planned event. It's something you could only really do in a shared universe like this. I understand people who are worried about it shaking up other books, but this is a very cool thing to try to do. Plus, I've read the scripts and they're good! [Laughs] It's really Jonathan Hickman doing a major Marvel event. It's very much him, playing on an enormous stage." - Kieron Gillen

In Ultimate Ultimates #7, it looks like the Children of Tomorrow aren't the only threat. Xorn and Zorn are returning, and we might end up with an Ultimate Celestial/Ultimate Eternal war, with the Ultimate Runaways caught up as well.
and Ultimate Hawkeye too )

Silver Surfer: Requiem was a 2007 "What If?" style miniseries by JMS and Esad Ribic, in which the Surfer discovers he'is dying and sets about putting his affairs in order. I cannot recommend the full issue or entire series enough, whether or not you're a Silver Surfer fan.

In the second issue, Surfer is coming to terms with his death and mulling over one last good deed he might do for his adopted home of Earth before he goes back to Zenn-La to die. After running into Spider-Man, he asks him for his perspective as a human (telling him only that he's leaving Earth for good, not that he's dying). Spider-Man tries to brainstorm, but he can't think of any single deed that will have the kind of lasting beneficial impact Surfer is looking for, due to all of the political and economic factors, and the nature of human society itself. Stumped, he ends up in a discussion with Surfer about the way Surfer perceives the universe, and Surfer offers to give Spidey a temporary boost of the power cosmic and let him find out what it's like for himself. Spider-Man declines, but asks, "[W]ould you mind letting someone else experience this?"

"That would depend on who this someone else is." (7 pages tragically abbreviated from 23.) )

One perfect moment for the Silver Surfer's endless compassion; one perfect moment for Peter Parker's integrity and insight; one perfect moment for Mary Jane Watson, his inspiration.
