Is it just me, or does Brian Vaughn and Mike Carey on Ultimate X-Men and (God help us...) Ultimate Elektra just feel like slumming?
Ultimate Nightmare features "hot newcomer Trevor Hairsine." It's been, what, close to two years since Cla$$war came out, hasn't it?
Ultimate Spider-Man #54: Arachnoman Variant sounds like something thought up by someone who's heard of the concept of humor, but has never actually seen it in person.
For some strange reason, the very fact that Thor and Iron Man comics are even still being published offends me. So, given that, I'm finding it very, very hard to care about this "Avengers Dissassembled" stunt. In fact, I find that I don't care even in the slightest. Alan Moore and Brian Bolland could take over Avengers and I still wouldn't give a damn, because it's only the damn Avengers and I just don't care. (see also Invaders and Secret War.)
So Thor: Son of Asgard is now an on-going. It seems to me that Thor alone has a hard time being profitable, and yet a spin-off series is perceived by the powers-that-be at Marvel to be neccessary. Weird.
Here, this is part of the solicitation info for the two issues of X-Men: The End shipping in August:
It's the epic finale to the story of the Children of the Atom as renowned X-Men scribe Chris Claremont joins with star artist Sean Chen for a trilogy in the style of the Lord of the Rings movies... Okay, let's break that down, shall we...first of all, this may be just me, but first and foremost, Lord of the Rings is a book. Yes, there was a film trilogy, but it was a derivitive work based on the novel. Secondly, don't make me think about a good book when you're trying to sell me your almost certain to be crappy book.
X-Force: insert snarky comment about Marvel going back in time to the early 90s here.
Both Runaways and X-Statix are cancelled. I'm mildy surprised to realize they were still coming out.
A Doctor Spectrum mini is spinning off from Supreme Power. Seems a bit early to be trying to make SP into a franchise, but again, maybe that's just me.
