    Vader-Didnt read

    Secret Six-I’m with BUg

    Divinity-didnt read, but will based on the review. Your Valiant recommends have been great.

    Spiderman-read the whole siperverse thing…meh..wrapped up way to…cleanly. At leat we got some Copiel art out of it. In General i dont care what happens to Marvel until the reboot, not sure way they roll out stories/arcs/events like these right before a shake up, seems like silly marketing to me.

    The Empty-Intrigued by it, will read issue 2

    P.S. ~Bucky Barnes the Winter Soldier, has been the biggest surprise read from the big two that i have picked up recently. Its about him filling in for that retconned Nick Fury Job of Universal Wall protector, but the art has been stunning.

  2. Vader:I just found out it’s a miniseries, Douche now find it more tolerable. I’ll probably bail, but I will allow it to exist.

    Divinity: Truly a new Valiant experience.

    “Look at the way they’re COLORED in this.”- Ambush Bug


    I kid, I kid. And believe there is some validity to the point in a world where Will Smith can play James West. It’s also nice to live in a world where not every black character is “Black Something.” Most, but not every.

    Thank you for continuing to my favorite podcast.

    I also wanted to stress my point that this might be some kind of way to appeal to readers of all colors. If a black kid reads a comic with nondescript colors for flesh tones, he can identify the person as black. A hispanic can do the same. As can a white, Asian, or other. If you look at a lot of books, especially the ones with predominantly white characters, I think you’ll notice this color scheme going on more often than not.
