I'm not Captain America, but I wish I was.
I've never been able to jump on the Remender bandwagon, but I can certainly see why people like him.
For me he's doing very safe, very simple plot driven work. Similar to what Johns puts out at DC.
It would be sad to see him go if he did leave he's made Bucky one of my favorite characters. But if he did leave I'd like him to get a shot at a Spider-man main title after Slott's done, he's even mentioned that's the one title he'd love to write.
Here's the article were he mentions it
creator owned . . . sounds like he's mad about how disney orders ruined his cap stories.
FAdam K- How do you read comics and sit around on this board and not know who Gorilla Man is after the last couple of years??
Boycott #1 issues!!!!!
Where is red hulk's moustache?
What Marvel is doing after AVX has to be big, and he know his own books do very well.
Animals sense weakness, sharks smell blood in water
Ishmael, Moses and Job, knew the divine order.
I've read a decent amount of his stuff.
I'd argue that killing and violence are very 'safe' things to do in comics. Geoff Johns does a lot of those things, Mark Millar does a lot of that, and both of them write very safe books as well.
When I say safe and simple, I'm referring to the kinds of narrative or thematic risks they are taking. Gillen isn't killing anywhere near as many people in the course of his work at Marvel, but I'd argue his work is much riskier and FAR more complex than Remender's more classic angsty plot driven stuff.
It's a personal opinion thing that the guys who are modeling themselves on Marv Wolfman and Chris Claremont don't really excite me. I'm not maligning anyone who prefers that kind of stuff, it's just not for me anymore. I've grown a bit tired of it.
