"People now are saying Odyssey is one of the best books ever done. DC let Internet critics ride roughshod over it, and told me to ignore the negative comments. I did, only to discover that was a really big mistake. Now if somebody comes after me about Odyssey there’s big trouble in bad town!" - Neal Adams

"Eventually, Adam and I pitched a book idea to a bunch of different publishers. Most of them liked it quite a bit, but no one would take it. A comic book about a teenaged girl named Destiny from South Central Los Angeles, raised in the ‘hood, bloodied on the streets—and who also happens to be the most gifted military mind of her generation—was a non-starter. When they asked what would happen in the book, it got even worse: Destiny would wage war against the system and all who represented it. Decades of both institutional and overt racism would lead to a tipping point and she would be the one doing the tipping. She would unite all the gangs in L.A. and secede a few square blocks of South Central from the Union by force. And she would kill LAPD officers to do it.

A book with a black female lead (the very definition of anathema in the comics world) who would be gunning down police officers? “No, thanks” was the response we got from everyone.

Everyone but Top Cow, a division of Image Comics—one of the last real bastions of creator-owned comics. They released a one-shot a couple of years back to overwhelming response (you can find that issue on Comixology for free, or so they tell me). Now, the five-issue miniseries is arriving."

It's "Off-Topic Tuesday" time!

In the comments to these weekly posts (and only these posts), it's your chance to go as off topic as you like.

Talk about non-comics stuff, thread derail, and just generally chat amongst yourselves.

Good god, I'd start to list the remarkable creative people we've lost this week but it would depress. Still, mention should be made of

Alan Rickman

Glenn Frey of The Eagles

Dale Griffin of Mott the Hoople

Dan Haggerty, Grizzly Adams to a generation

Someone share something more optimistic, please?

He's not kidding.

Anyway, after too long I've managed to get the scans ready for the next few issues, which leads us nicely along the Squadron Supreme's gentle descent into tyranny.

But first, some humanitarianism! )

New Suicide Squad trailer has arrived. Like the music choice on this.

Also, still nothing that looks like a spoiler or a big reveal, so feel free to check it out.

The former's winning can seem too obvious, the latter's too obviously contrived.

When whoever does does, it can read like their view of things' being touted over the other's.

Those problems weren't in the Punisher and Spidey's fights in Avenging Spider-Man #22.

It probably helped that the Spider in question was Superior.

It certainly didn't hurt. )
