Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

Marvel already has their own Geoff Johns (a guy who's maybe not the best writer or storyteller, but is very good at using continuity to his advantage and coming up with new, interesting ideas), though. The difference is that they don't give Al Ewing anything important to do.

 

Back when I was still reading Marvel full time before AvX pissed me off enough to quit, I had a list of ten or so writers who I felt were the best that they had at the time - Peter David, Chris Gage, Slott, others I've forgotten in the six years since, and not one of them was ever on the 'superstar' list that always got to go to the retreats, none of them ever did the big crossover events, they were always getting pulled left and right by those big events.

Heh, well, I think Slott qualifies now, but... his quality maybe hasn't held up so well.
Personally, I think Ewing and David Walker are the best current Marvel writers and the ones most deserving of being "big names". Saladin Ahmed, too, though he's only written on comic so far.

Phi. Ultimate Spider Man was lame and I completely didn't understand what it was so good. He's Alias, New Avengers and X-Men is completely different story. Maybe he will make me interested in DC again after this awful Lamebirth.

Cebulski might actually be good. I remember loving a lot of the stuff he edited (including the first Rubaways series by BKV).

Thank god Axels gone. He took Marvel from Quesadas heights to this shithole its in right now.

Lets hope CB steers the company back to being actually goddamn readable as a whole.

He's been a big deal for Marvel for many years at this point, though not, like, in America. I'm not terribly surprised he was their pick.

Cebulski has mostly been working as an talent scout the last few years, and has a rep for finding quality. He used to do portfolio reviews at an Irish con, and I know that people would come from all over to see him. Hopefully that carries over well to being EiC.

So, solications are out and a few things have popped up.

 

Dan Slott is leaving Amazing Spider-Man, finally.

 

Secondly, Marvel just canceled a load of books.  Among them Captain Marvel, Generation X, America, The Unbelievable Gwenpool, Luke Cage and Defenders ; though Captain Marvel is likely joining GotG in the "Getting put on hiatus while this Infinity Countdown event plays out"

 

Additionally, Hawkeye and Champions have solicitations suggestive of them ending as well, though those could be red herrings.

 

I see people saying Iceman and She-Hulk are in that pile as well, but I dunno where they're getting that info from.

Also, apparently Jim Starlin has cut ties with Marvel, citing the fact that upcoming storylines in the Thanos ongoing basically retread material he was actively working on for the upcoming Thanos graphic novels, making his work redundant.  This was after being rejected as the writer for the Thanos ongoing.

Oh boo-hoo. Starlin might have innovated the character, but goddamn, man. You can't be the final authority on the character 100% of the time. Let other people play with his character for once, man.

Starlin has contributed so much to Marvel's mythology, but no power on Earth would make me buy a book he worked on this century. That said, he's a Claremont, a Furman, a Hama... I think there should always be room for him to work on those characters in some capacity. Just stick him in his own little corner like Larry on RAH or Furman on RG1 and let him go crazy. Nobody working on the other books needs to ever give it a second thought, and he gets to keep playing with those toys he gave us. 

 

Gwenpool is a great loss. I'm sad to see GenX axed, although I haven't actually read an issue yet.

I think that's missing the forest for the trees.  Starlin's big beef is that the series they DID let him work on is itself being made irrelevant by way of the work being done on the ongoing.

"Just to set the record straight, Marvel Comics didn't pull me off any books, they just made it clear they weren't interested in using me on any of the tie-in series to the movies or regular series. Even though I lobbied heavily to write the Thanos on-going that task was twice given to other writers, which is Marvel Editorial's right to do.[/size]
 
"What I objected to and what will be keep me from doing any further work for Marvel Editorial was Tom Brevoort approving a plot for the current on-going series, which was pretty much the same as the Thanos story arc in the graphic novel trilogy Alan Davis and I have been working on for Tom for close to the past year. He had 200 pages of script and 100 pages of pencils on this project when he gave the green light to a strikingly similar plot. The on-going will be in print before the graphic novel trilogy. To avoid spoiling anyone's enjoyment of these two stories I will not be summarizing the striking similarities.
 
"At first Tom denied giving his approval to the plot. When that turned out to be false, he switched to claiming there was nothing similar about the two plots. When that didnt fly he changed his story to it was all an accident. These changes of excuse and other bits of procrastination ate up a month, by which time the current Thanos on-going art team was too far along for anything to be done about the situation. Too bad for me. So I am moving on.
 
"And, yes, Marvel Entertainment has treated me very well and generously. Them I like."


That said, Starlin has a habit of being fussy, so we'll see how long this sticks and if Marvel bothers to try to win him back (again).

Starlin's been in comics long enough to know that the next writer could completely ignore what you've built.

 

The ongoing's been pretty good, though. Perhaps its reception is making him angry when compared to his own work.

Except this isn't the "next writer" this is Starlin being preempted by someone doing a similar storyline, before his story has even had a chance to be published (but well after hundreds of pages have been turned in) and then getting the runaround (being outright lied to according to his account) when he tried to point this out.

So Gwenpool, America, *and* Iceman are cancelled? 
 
Dan Slott's gone? 
 
*D BUSTER PRIME MODERATOR EDIT: Political/social discussion outside of the content of the comics themselves is best reserved for P&R.*
 
I was debating whether or not to make the trek to the main area comic shop given that I can't shake this cold (night shift outside in the cold, so...) but I guess I may just brave it to see how people are taking the news of all these cancellations. 
 
That being said though, I'm hoping no one cancels the Spider-Man comic strip (https://comicskingdo...-man/2017-12-20 ; delete the date to go to whatever the newest strip is). It's how I get my Marvel fix when I can't run up there.

Dan Slott is leaving Spider-Man but he may stick around Marvel on another title.

Hopefully the speculation on his replacement is false. (Nick Spencer *shudder*)
