Re: Marvel Legacy - September 2017

Looking through some of the solicits for December 2017 I'll admit it's neat seeing Marvel bring back some of the legacy elements. X-men 2099 returning, Stryfe, Gideon, Phoenix, etc.

So Punisher 218 is out now, and they have the numbering in the back. Anyone know why they are not including Ennis Marvel Knights run? They have Welcome Back Frank but not MK. I know MAX should not be there, but MK was firmly in MU. Yet Angel Punisher made the cut

Marvel has canceled America, Gwenpool, Hawkeye, Generation X, Guardians of the Galaxy, and most likely Luke Cage and Defenders.

I don't mind the diversity of characters, but I mind bad quality in writing/art and Marvel has been sucking in that department for the past several years. Right now, there are still too many titles, including once again too many X-Men titles.

They needed to clean house and get a fresh start with some characters.

Contract the line to only include the amount of books they can get a good/serviceable writer/artist combination. Every few months I'll go into a comic store and look at the new release rack and can't believe the shitty art they're trying to sell. If the art is that bad I can't imagine the writing.

Shitty tumblr artist is all the rage lately. And they probably work cheap.

That is just horrible. Worse than Liefeld has ever been without the flare.

Re: Marvel Legacy - September 2017

I've actually seen worse art from the current Marvel. I think they were testing what they could get away with and still sell books based solely on brand recognition.
