It's an ending. I'm not a big fan of conclusions that are basically nesting dolls. Epilogues are a great place to tease what's coming/fallout, but a final issue should aim to deliver resolution first and foremost in my opinion. [...] Often these things end with 'and here's what the next event/linewide shift' will be. I like real endings. -- Nick Spencer

The Fix #1

"The Fix is about two LAPD Robbery Homicide Detectives, Roy and Mac. They've gotten themselves into a bit of trouble, and in trying to get themselves out of it, they've gotten themselves into a bit more. From there, the story spirals out city-wide, touching Hollywood, organized crime, local politics, and the news media. It's like The Wire, if The Wire were primarily focused on jokes about … “manhood” envy. I really wish David Simon would've tackled that more head-on."

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

Long time readers probably notice that if anything, the politics are less heavy handed nowadays. There was absolutely nothing subtle about the messages in 80s comics. It's just you were younger when you read them. -- Nick Spencer

I’m not oblivious to the fact that folks can feel like they suffer from event fatigue or what have you. All I can say to that is, I personally believe that events are like any other kind of story. The delivery method doesn’t matter. Whether it’s its own title, a weekly book, an anthology, or a team-up, I don’t believe there is a type of book that doesn’t work. All that matters at the end of the day is whether or not your story is good. -- Nick Spencer

I wasn't intending on posting anything really regarding Secret Empire. After Civil War II: Enchanted Christmas, I was pretty done with Marvel events. However, there was just one moment from Secret Empire that grabbed my attention, because its a point that I constantly brought up a while back about how Spencer treated two certain characters...

Also, yes, I am in the page limit. 1/3 left over.
