    Go look at some of the online reaction to Miles Morales' introduction. Pay close attention to right wing blogs specifically. There's a whole lot of "not racist, just saying" sentiment out there...

    This is an unusually brave move by Marvel. Brave because they're going to catch so much shit from the outrage entitled white nerds and right wing blogs who will suddenly pay attention to comics to...

    I think basically everybody knows what needs to happen here: A clean continuing resolution that funds the government.

    It would pass the House today if it were put to a vote. It would also draw Tea...

    No. The theory is that when the camera zooms in past the panel view of hands at jokers shoulder, is when it starts. Joker dies the moment the laughter stops. The next panel shows the bar of light...

    This is one of those things that I can't un-see now that I've seen it.

    And yet..... That's all the X-Men comics do. Live in the past.

    The reason people keep falling back to the Morrison run is it was the last time the "X-Men story" of mutants actually made legitimate progress.

    No problem at all with making some white comic book characters acted by non white actors. These characters are all white because they were created during a more overtly racist time.

    When...

    There's any number of ways they could bring Peter back, but they shouldn't. Right now the Ultimate universe is the only place in ongoing comics where a characters death has any real meaning. It's the...

    Grant Morrison's X-Men is one of the only times 'post Claremont' that it actually felt like the "X-Men story" was progressing in a dramatically organic way. It wasn't perfect, but it really felt like...

    Yet another issue where the amazing premise (original X-Men come to the future, and we are the Days of Future Past esque dystopia) is being wasted.

    Why is this book so... un-ambitious?

    Uh, Peter Parker was not a hipster in the latest movie. Believe me, I live in SF and am surrounded by hipsters whenever I go to the Mission. Peter Parker was no hipster. He was kind of a loner...

    What a mess.

    They definitely shouldn't have tried to put all 700 (!) up at once. Space it out to 100 a week or something. Ease the load and keep people coming back.

    It's been really interesting to see how, as attitudes towards gay marriage have been changing over the past 4-8 years, how the people "left behind" have been percieved. I remember some complaints...
