@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

Watching early episodes of the x-files will make you feel super old once you start to notice the techology they use, and the technology they lack.

While browsing Youtube vids I read these comments: 'The X Files is such an underrated show' and another 'Brent Spiner is a underrated actor' I want to punch something.

So apparently all those pages with creative teams are ads for a anthology issue where each of those are one page of an issue, according to the Cool which Bleeds.

If that's true it's certainly not as exciting as it might have initially appeared!
 
As for the brilliance of Akira Yoshida:
 
https://www.theverge...ida-controversy
 

In shocking news, Marvel’s new editor-in-chief, C.B. Cebulski, admitted today that he masqueraded as a Japanese person for a year writing comics under the pseudonym “Akira Yoshida,” as first reported by Bleeding Cool, and then picked up by Vulture. Under the name Yoshida, Cebulski wrote Marvel comics featuring Wolverine, Thor, and Kitty Pryde in stories set in Japan and having to do with martial arts from 2005 to 2006.

Short version: he wrote under a pseudonym to avoid rules about Marvel editors writing or drawing, and his fake identity was Japanese and he used it to seem 'authentic' while writing Japanese-themed stories.

Soooooo the X-books are being pared down to just Hickmans House of X and Power of X after their launch in July and are to be the only X books until next year.

Not sure anyones ever going to hit the Hype train X-men #1 hit in the early 90s but Im pretty sure something has to change after this run of Uncanny.

I have no faith in this current Age of X bullshit.

 

I have faith that Hickman can build the X-Men back up to being a proper powerhouse franchise for Marvel.


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

Hickman has a spectacular record at Marvel on doing great comics with a super intricate looong range plan that builds amazingly over years through multiple books.

He was absolutely the logical play here if Marvel wanted to recapture some of Chris Claremont's classic plotting style with a more modern and directed feel.

ZacWilliam, I'm optimistic and I'm absolutely in to see how it goes.

Hickman’s Avengers and FF rarely did as much for me as it did for others, but I’m still glad to see him come aboard. More than anything else, what the X-Men need to get out of this cycle of garbage direction changes they’ve been stuck in for years is someone with a long-term plan.

I’m doubtful it’ll do much for me, but if it succeeds in making the X-Men matter again, I’m all for it.

i dont hate the current Uncanny book...i know theyre killing off some background characters, but i get the feeling thats all gonna be fixed once Age of X-man is over and Hickman comes aboard and im guessing uses time travel in some really intricate way and fixes the last few years of x-stuff.

 

But honestly? im kinda really liking alot of the Age of X-man books and ideas...x-men honestly seem to work better in alternate universes than they do in regular 616...its just one of those weird x-things i guess.

This is basically my feeling. I found a lot of Hickman's FF run to be kind of dull, but it did sometimes sing and even if I didn't find it uniformly great, there is absolutely a lot to be said for a long-term vision that's allowed to unfold under a consistent team. I'd really like to see them focus on just, like, two core books for a decent period. It sounds like Hickman's X-universe will be expanding pretty quickly, but hopefully they won't overstretch themselves.

Hulk is the best thing on the stands bar none and unless you hate gore, you should read it.

And it's also perfectly tailored to new readers and die hards.

But again, if you don't like gore, probably not your scene
