Default Marvel Comics- What the!?!?!?!

Well, today is the day that Marvel said they were going to revolutionize and totally change the comic book industry. Well, so far it has been nothing but homage covers

https://www.newsarama.com/35069-spid...with-gifs.html


while I do like a nice homage cover (to me they have a special kind of charm) but unless there is going to be a future announcement later on this afternoon, I am not seeing anything out of the ordinary.

For some reason, I think I am the last person on this board that still has hope for Marvel but that hope is fading very fast.


Hoping for a Phase 6 with FS Statues of the following

  • Moondragon
  • Mantis
  • Wonder Man (in the Perez Designed costume)
  • Havok (need a new one in his classic costume because the existing one is too expensive on Ebay)
  • The Red Guardian (The Defenders member-this one is a longshot)
  • and a REALLY GOOD Phoenix Museum pose

Stop hoping for Marvel, you'll only be disappointed.

I saw that too, but apparently there are announcements all day. And I don't really see those as homage covers. More of a "let's mine the past when things were great to try and pull the older readers back." So far everything to me has been a gimmick: using the old numbering, corner boxes, homage covers. It still comes down to the stories and the universe, which hasn't impressed me in quite a few years.

There's always hope though. Getting rid of Axel Alonso and Brian Bendis might help.

well, maybe that will happen on the same day DC gets rid if Dan Didio (though his role seems to be somewhat diminished)
