"This speaks to me of a guy who, like I perceive Doom, doesn't believe that he should own the world because he feels like he is worthy and nobody else recognizes it. To me, Doctor Doom's big secret, although he would never even admit it to himself, is that he wants to own the world because secretly he believes that if he does, it will validate all the things he wants to believe about himself. It's a complete 180 of the way we tend to think about Doom." – Mark Waid

'When “Civil War II” was on the table, and we started discussing it at the retreats, I had a very early talk with Tom Brevoort about how I was desperate to write the epilogue. I was a huge fan of what Brian Bendis had done with “The Confession.” [The epilogue one-shot to the first “Civil War.”] It was one of my favorite event comics ever. I really wanted to have my name on something that at least aspired to do the same type of thing.' -- Nick Spencer

Because of a frankly stupid Comixology sale* I picked up the Edmondson/Noto run on Black Widow. I'd previous read Edmondson in Who is Jake Ellis, Where is Jake Ellis, a bit of The Activity and his 1872 run, before dropping Red Wolf like a hot potato. And yes, it is true that Edmondson is problematic at best. Noto on art has gone from being a nice pin up artist but a bad story teller to a dynamic and cinematic storyteller.

The plot of the Edmondson/Noto Black Widow run is that an organisation, Chaos, and Natasha aren't getting on. She goes after their assets. They go after her accountant. She goes after their accountants. She gets names and details and calls a meeting, hiring a cruise liner for the occasion.
The meeting )


In the sale, I picked up

Two volumes of Aaron's Doctor Strange
Two volumes of Edmondson's Black Widow
The first Thor Visionaries


I would recommend
All of Fraction's Hawkeye for a tenner. Honestly, you're a fool if you don't.
All of Waid's Fantastic Four
All of Hickman's Fantastic Four
SECRET WARS
Hyperion: Daddy Issues
Doctor Strange: The Oath
Astonishing X-Men
War of Kings
House of M
Chelsea Cain's Mockingbird
Ellis's Moon Knight
Fraction's Defenders
Patsy Walker: Hellcat (by Kathryn Immonen)
Runaways

"Probably the most visually fun is Iron Mariner -- why is he never in the same room as Jako Krangsen, Stark Enterprises' new Atlantean chief scientist? Then there's Collapsar, size-changing space cop, whose mastery of Pym Particles makes him a credit to the Nova Corps, and Marlene Brashear, aka Marvel Woman, and Ted Altman, aka King Hulk. (So he decided to double down on the 'Hulk' thing. So sue him.)

"Of course, it's not all fun and games -- we'll also be meeting Avengers 20XX's most diabolical enemy--a familiar face who might just end reality as we know it. Hope everyone has their crying towels ready -- this one's a tragedy XX years in the making, true believer!"
-- Al Ewing

On its floor, they met the information broker Tori Raven.

She told them that the man they'd come to rescue, the Widow's attorney Isaiah, was on the top floor along with the man who'd kidnapped him. To get him back, they'd have to go through lots of men.

The Widow paid her for the info, then went upstairs with X-23.

They took different routes to get there. )

Issue #10 of the Black Widow series that ended this week opened in a time when Hawkeye was an Avenger and she wasn't.

She was trying to get a man named Rashid out of Islamabad.

Someone followed her, leaping from rooftop to bustop and shooting out the engine block of her car.

She and Rashid escaped into the crowd.

In the now, a man held the Widow's accomplice Isaiah captive.

In the then, she pulled Rashid onto the seat of a motorcycle and drove off.

Behind her, an arrow flew.

It went over her head. )

I didn’t have a lot of input in it. To me anything to do with the movies – as far as I’m concerned, what Alan and I did was the Watchmen graphic novel and a couple of illustrations that came out at the same time. Everything else – the movie, the game, the [laugh] prequels – are really not canon. They’re subsidiary. They’re not really Watchmen. They’re just something different.

“So I was quite happy to say with the video game, yeah, I like that, and I don’t like that, and, that’s okay, because it wasn’t really anything that impinged on what we’d done creatively.
” - Dave Gibbons

"You know, honestly, let’s cut through all the bulls**t, and let’s just say: to tell the reader a good story. Honestly, that’s such a trite, bulls**t answer, but it’s the truth of it, right? When you cut through all of this stuff, we want the reader to walk away from it feeling like they were told a good story, and that they felt something for the people that lived through it. Outside of that, it’s up to other people to decide what the thing is." - Darwyn Cooke

Been about a week and I still can't believe no one's posted this yet. I'm sad to see this book go and I probably won't be picking up the Marvel NOW spin-offs, because Remender's run was so good that I can't see the other two titles coming close to this. There were more than four pages that I wanted to post, but I posted these four since it's one of the moments I really wanted to happen. Let's just say, I'd read a Deadpool title if it was with this Wade. But I have a feeling that the new Deadpool title will gloss over the growth that Remender showed for Deadpool during his UXF run. In any case, I'll let the scans speak for themselves. The set-up. Uncanny X-Force just prevented the world from being destroyed by the new Apocalypse (I won't say how, but Deadpool is pivotal to the outcome), and Deadpool and Evan (the Apocalypse clone) have a talk about what's happened. Enjoy!


Glad you didn't make the fart joke, Wade. )
