    Honestly Alonso can talk all he wants, he knows that Marvel is sort of trolling with the fans of the original Captain Marvel with their constant comebacks of the character as of late.

    Hmm, I almost forgot about that Brubaker Point One story. I wonder where those two new characters have come into play?

    Pham's art work looks nice, hopefully the finish copy will maintain consistency throughout the issues.

    Yeah either they just don't get it, or they're trolling the fans. If you're not going to bring him back, just leave the character alone and stop getting people's hopes up.

    They actually had the perfect way to keep Mar-Vell in the MU and not take away what happened in his death with the Skrull-Vell thing...but they killed him off right away too

    That said, when you're multi-shipping an ongoing series, it's imperative that you have a solid rotation of artists, revolving around your core artist -- kind of like a [baseball team's] bullpen supports its ace. A stable of complementary artists builds a visual world for the reader. Two of the titles I mentioned before -- "Uncanny X-Force" and "Daredevil" -- excel because they have that.
    Uncanny X-Force is an odd choice to mention, because it's had anything but complementary artists, and it certainly doesn't have a core artist to build a rotation around. For example, Mike McKone was promoted as the main artist of the 9 part Final Execution arc. But based on the 7 issues published or solicited so far, he's only on one issue. Maybe his schedule has been reshuffled and he'll be doing the final two issues, but that's still only a third of the arc.

    I've said it before, but rebooting mar-vell from the ground up is about the only reason i'd support a marvel universe restart.

    In the short term, he and a certain lethal protector will be dealing with something more Alien than mystical.

    I believe it will be a separate miniseries, not anything in the main books themselves. Could be wrong.

    Not a chance.
    18+ issues a year equals rushed work, inconsistency, and multiple artists.

    It also means $18-24 extra PER TITLE each year.
    Avengers, Daredevil, Fantastic Four, FF, Hawkeye, New Avengers
    Animal Man, Batman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Justice League
    Saga, Thief of Thieves.

    For me, that could break down to about 20 bucks extra a month. Or five dollars extra a week.

    I think mean "THOSE idiot POSTERS"

    There are quite a few of us....

    But hey, if you think having no consistent art team and occasional false advertising as a result (Mike McKone on the Final Execution arc) and if you're a big fan of having your wallet bled dry and/or ending up reading fewer titles than you'd like as a result...if you see that as "the best thing Marvel does"....well....okay then.
