    The Watchtower - A thread for all comics

    I just find his writing dull, the only good thing I can say about Hickman is I managed to make over 100 pound after selling the awful Avengers omnibus he wrote, which managed to bore me to tears while attempting to finish it.

    Anime

    Funimation is okay, though just like CR, all the good stuff isn't available to us over here. It's good if you prefer watching dubs though, which these days I do as I already read enough as it is.

    Me too, Rosenberg really knows how to write good old fashioned fun comics, which IMHO, is the way the X-Men should be. Epic stories - the kind Hickman almost always writes are best read in collected editions, especially when you have to end up reading more than one title to fully understand the story, which is again something Hickman and also Bendis always seems to do.

    The DC collection department are a fucking mess right now, they have been cancelling loads of titles recently, yet they still manage to publish yet another new edition of The Watchmen, Dark Knight Returns and The Sandman at least 2 or 3 times a year, I mean no-one has them in their collection now do they.

    I have the first OHC of his run and it was pretty good, the next volume is now out of print though, so I will have to wait for Marvel to release an omnibus before reading more. I am not really a massive fun of Aaron though, I loved his Dr Strange, but apart from that, nothing he has ever written has really blown me away. I assume I am in the minority with this view though, as Marvel seem to have had him writing about 5 books a month now for almost ten years now. Tom Taylor, Matthew Rosenberg and Kelly Thompson are currently my favourite writers at Marvel right now.

    I will pick up the omnibus for that one at one point as I have been told it's easily the best Thor run of all-time. Most of the stuff I am reading has never really been collected in hardcovers - which is the way I like to collect my comics these days.

    Has anyone else ever attempted to read all the main Marvel titles from the point Stan Lee stopped writing them until about 1996, when Heroes Reborn began? Well I started this mammoth task earlier this week and as long as you don't bother reading all the excessive exposition - the writers of this era loved putting in their comics, it's actually been really enjoyable. The highlight's being so far, Conway's Amazing Spider-Man and Englehart's Hulk. I do have to add, I wont be reading any Thor as I haven't really enjoyed reading any Thor books, even the modern ones.

    Shame it's all going to be loads of lot of filler until the X-Men line get rebooted once again. If Hickman can write the X-Men in a similar way to how he wrote the FF, it could be really good, but if he writes it in the cold, monotone way he writes almost everything else, I certainly wont be bothering with it.

    They better not be ending Matthew Rossenberg's run on Uncanny X-Men to accommodate Hickman.

    Jordan Peele's 'Us'

    Les Fluers by the greatest female vocalist of all time - Minnie Ripperton.

    Not for me, Hickman is great at epic stories like the Avengers but for me his writing is humourless and verging on the boring most of the time.

    Jordan Peele's 'Us'

    I just came back from seeing this and I have to say I didn't really like it. While it was technically a well-made film, it failed to hold my attention and apart from a few decent laughs, I just felt it was all a bit dull and boring.

    This is Hip-Hop.

    Huey always plays a lot of hip hop on his show, which is nice as Radio 6 has to be one of the whitest radio stations there is usually.
  14. I hope not as none of the Secret Wars were particularly good.

    Football Thread 2018/19

    If he has been sensible with his money, he should have enough to live on for the rest of his life, but I have a feeling not many footballers ever are.
