JMS Off Thor: For Reals This Time

As reported HERE. One slightly spoilery image from the article under the cut for legality.

Of course, I thought he was on his way out as far back as OMD. He's not happy with that. And apparently he was upset about having to deal with some big Thor-related crossover planned, "Siege of Asgard."

If he must be replaced, my choice is Fraction, who's done good work with the character.

Motto, motto, motto to both halves of the comment.

Double motto.

I hope Bill gets to punch Loki right in is stupid face.

Triple motto.

I'm hoping that if Bill becomes the newest Marvel superhero, they'd name him Sergeant Southwest, Tornado Belt Bill, or somesuch.

Fuck Joe Q. Seriously. How anyone in their right mind could fuck over JMS the way he has is mind-boggling.

Is he though? My impression was that JMS was really busy with other things and didn't really have time for comics (hence the Twelve being in eternal limbo)

"The best Marvel comic on the stands"

So they're killing it, of course.

Sometimes I find myself tempted to only read mediocre but popular books, so I won't have to suffer through cancellations.

Well, I'll leave when he does

Ah, damn, I would have liked to see where JMS was going. Oh, well, Marvel saves me yet more money -- that was the last regular Marvel comic I was buying. I'll buy Reborn for love of the character, but I confidently expect Marvel to fuck it up, so I doubt that will last for long.

I still vividly remember staring at Civil War #7 and going "*wow*, you guys really don't want my (nasty liberal) money, do you?" and it's been amazingly true as my Marvel list dropped to substantial to one to now, nothing.

Oh well, looks like I can finally stop to grudgingly enjoy a Thor comic. That felt really weird anyway.

A conclusion to The Twelve would also be very nice, thank you.

Not surprised. Among other things, look at the schedule, and the increased amount of work he's been doing at DC.

Depending on his replacement, getting a comic that comes out on something resembling a monthly schedule might be nice.

Not sure on that one. JMS might be a flake (and I thought Babylon 5 had only a couple good seasons) but he was what I read Thor for. His replacements on Supreme Power have been destroying all my reasons for reading that title.

As much as I hate delays, I was willing to live with it for the sheer quality of Thor (even after the slow start). It's a rare comic you can actually savour every page.

Knowing Marvel they'll turn it into a train wreck now like everything else good.
