    Sales will continue to dwindle and DC will continue to dominate Marvel's lame properties.


I think in the short term Marvel's sales will continue to fall, fans are waiting for something to happen before they return en masse and I don't see ANY evidence of that yet, although CB Cebulski only just took over and these books are prepped months in advance (if not years).

    On the upside, Alonso was fired and no one at Marvel's had a supporting to word to say about him.


He'll go down in history as the man who almost ruined Marvel comics.

    There's nothing like staring into your own extinction to focus one's priorities and personal agendas, eh 'liberals'. Liberal as long as you agree with them. I don't want an alternative, just an agenda free entertainment please.


You shouldn't peddle politics in someone else's creation.

If writers want to inject politics into comics they should do so in titles THEY create.

...and by politics I mean specifically leftist identity politics, not simply stories with some political component (for instance spy based stories like Black Widow could always have some political component).


    Quote:
    Aaron's been dragging things out because he doesn't have any ideas.


I disagree with this, I think Aaron has lots of ideas, simply that none of them seem like good news for Thor or Thor fans.


    Quote:
    There's glimpses that Marvel publishing is starting to sort itself out. Waid is back on Cap.


Well Marvel seemingly chased all their best writers away.


    Quote:
    What we need is JMS back on the book BADLY, with the promise that there'd be no more 'event' interference from Bendis either \:\)


I'd like a writer on the book who is a Thor fan, preferably one not big on decompression.


    Quote:
    Or Walt. Never though 'or' would preface Walt, but it's almost too much to ask.


They say never go back to your ex.


    Quote:
    If Marvel want to capitalise on their big selling MCU property they need to dump Aaron fast and get back on track with a quality writer who understands the character of Thor and knows where to take him.

While Aaron is writing one of Marvel's best selling books we won't see a new writer.




You address Omnipotence...tread carefully.
