Off topic, but since Comic Vine has removed my ability to create a new topic of my own, I'll just post it here. 

 
James Robinson has NO IDEA how to write this character any more. I gave him a chance with Starman 81, but my greatest fears were confirmed.
 
I have taken a break from him recently, hoping that the new series would redeem him, but I noticed a new upload in the gallery that confirmed my worst fears.
 
SHADE IS NOW CONFUSED BY AMERICAN HOLIDAYS? He's lived in the United States more than 100 years. This is just further proof James Robinson has no idea what he's doing these days. He's gaining the lowest common denominator fans now with his piss poor writing. I'm talking fangirls and people who have really no idea what Starman is about, think the OOC romance with Hope is actually endearing, and so on.
 
Debate me all you want, but he admitted he doesn't even own the Shade series. I'd be surprised if he even owns Starman 0-80 any more. James has become a grade-A hack and I am sick and tired of him rehashing Starman suddenly, only to grind it to the ground through his rapidly deteriorating storytelling skills.
 
I also find it particularly interesting that some dweeb thought they could completely remove all of my hard work on Shade's bio. Thanks, man! Enjoy your 100000 gazillion points you got from writing the article that now puts all of the new garbage for Swift on a pedestal. Just further proof that the Shade I knew and loved is indeed dead, and has been dragged through the death by an tragically inept writer and his remaining, horridly inept, fans.

To be honest, I think Brubaker is not getting better with his run on Cap. He writes his comics in a soap opera fashion, just at a bit quicker pace. I'm not saying I dislike his comics, considering I read all of this "original" cap Run he did, but I lost interest in his Cap around Reborn. 
 
He just can't write dynamic villains worth a shit and it's tiring. I hope they let the director theatricalize Red Skull for the Captain America and don't give Brubaker too much power in his consultant work, or that's going to be one hell of a boring film.
 
As for DC and Marvel? Who cares? Both are the pits at the moment in terms of actual creativity.

Whenever I see Liefeld, I automatically click on a link. I feel bad....but I can't look away from the art. Bad stuff, lol

I wish Jack Knight would have been on Smallville. Stargirl is jumping the gun and typical idiocy.

Or we'll be as behind as half of the artists over at Marvel. Good riddance female Loki, I say. =)

Anywhere but the current run. It's garbage.

Does Deadpool have as many titles as Wolverine now or something, or am I just mistaken? Sorry, haven't been following him at all, but it just seems like a surge ever since that Wolverine film came out...

I'm definitely looking forward to this film...moreso than Thor as there's still hope for some good casting. Thor has been nothing but 'miss' for me, but of course I hope to be proven wrong when that film is released...
 
Anyway. Someone from a German-speaking nation for Skull please, since it is going to be in the 1940s and he better have a heavy accent. Christoph Waltz, Richard Sammel, Thomas Kretschmann, or even Til Schweiger (three of those guys were in Basterds) in the role would be the bee's knees. I've got so much hope for this film. However, Cap and Skull casting and acting will make or break the film, in addition to the script. Brubaker better keep to that involvement as he claimed...
