Re: New Marvels on September 10

Getting: WAR OF KINGS: WHO WILL RULE? (one-shot) KICK-ASS #7 Though I don't remember the "Who Will Rule" one-shot being solicited...was this a last minute edition? I'm even having trouble finding the solicit for it on Marvel's website. But still, I feel the need to get all "War of Kings" tie-ins... ...

No, it's just the actual story pages. These are story collections, (online reprints) not vintage reproductions of the entire comics.

Re: Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited

I'm not sure how I want to keep track of the weekly updates to the Marvel DCU website, other than I know I do want to track the "online-exclusive" comics, and the new content, (perhaps a weekly post on the "newswire" forum, like Col. Fury's?). Anyway, here's what was uploaded last week: Monday, Augu...

Re: New Marvels on August 26

Hell yes it's okay! I like seeing what other folks are excited to be reading. I'm glad to see you're still getting Nova & Guardians of the Galaxy, Kevin. I think these books are great! Everyone should be reading Nova & Guardians of the Galaxy! Yeah, I want to continue to support those two books, ju...

Re: Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited

The interface is ab-so-lutely HORRENDOUS. I've seen programs coded by half-drunk amateurs that are more usable. Seriously, I've read scans of comics before and had no problem doing so. I couldn't stomach trying to read using Marvel's ridiculous viewer. I'm fairly new to reading comics online, so ma...

Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited

I started this thread to see if anyone else here is using this feature on Marvel's website? (it could potentially be pretty handy for chronologists). A couple of weeks ago, I bought a year's subscription, and am overall pretty impressed. The "smart panels" feature is now my favorite way to read the ...

Re: Skaar: Son of Hulk #2-6 + "Savage World of Sakaar" one-shot

I updated several more flashbacks in the MCP listings above. Not just advice. Here's the dialogue from the relevant section of SKR 5: (7:3) SKAAR: "Always talking... --just talk talk talk" CAIERA: "Today I'll do more than that. The Old Power draws its strength from the planet itself." (8) CAIERA (co...

Re: Skaar: Son of Hulk #2-6 + "Savage World of Sakaar" one-shot

One more thing for now, having flicked back through the comics - Caiera should be -OP rather than -VO in #5, yes? [That is, since she's actively protecting Skaar, she's "doing stuff" - albeit without a physical body, so still off-panel - thus upgrading her from the -VO.] I don't know if her giving ...

Re: Skaar: Son of Hulk #2-6 + "Savage World of Sakaar" one-shot

I've updated some of the MCP listings to reflect Somebody's excellent observations. I'll go home tonight and check on adding page-ranges to the listings for some of the other flashbacks, (I've been hesitant to do page-ranges on flashbacks until now). It used to be that if the MCP listing mentions th...

Re: Skaar: Son of Hulk #2-6 + "Savage World of Sakaar" one-shot

Notes: I analysed Hulk Family: Green Genes #1/1, #1/2 and #1/4 before. The Skaar story was the second story from the one-shot, not the first. Good catch. But for one-shots like that, should the MCP listings look like "HF:GG 1/2" or "HF:GG/2"? The Surfer's also appearing in Beta Ray Bill: Godhunter ...
