In every interview Kirkman sounds like a very friendly and funny person!
JR_84's forum posts
An interesting fact :
the Penciler Gabe Geko is actually Gabriel Hardman who's worked on such great titles as Agent's of Atlas and Hercules. It's interesting to see an artist's work evolve with time.
Magneto at that time was the leader of the X-men... I don't actually remember seeing him that much...
Vertigo is part of the Maurauders so you see her quite a bit.
I hope this helps...
As it has been mentioned in a previous post, this was collected in the Essential X-men (I recommend this over the trade presented here)... the thor and x-factor issues are contained in the book... and a bunch of other great Claremont stories with art by JRJR, Barry Windsor-smith and Art Adams!!!.
Louise Simonson wrote X-Factor... Walter Simonson wrote Thor (and maybe drew X-factor also).... there be a connection???
Ok I see now that you do give bad review every now and then!
Anyway your reviews are always-spot on and you have great insight and background knowledge about everything that goes on in the book and what came before.
I rarely miss your video reviews even when it's for a book I don't necessarily care for!
Keep up the good work!
G-Man you are definitely a comic enthusiast!
You're always excited about the comics you review and the lowest rating I've seen you give to a comic is 3,5, which isn't really a bad rating, are there any comics you don't like? or is it that you never review bad book?
Does anyone remember the price of trades in the 90s?? They weren't all that popular back then... and you could see that in the prices. Maybe it's because I bought my comics in Canada, but the prices were ridiculous : a 200 page paper-back for 40 canadian $... I guess the exchange rate didn't help much either!
Say what you will about Leifield.... He has a very recognisible art style. It takes about half a second identify! It's like Eric Clapton's guitar tone... you just know who it is!
This is pretty much what was said during the three seconds where the actors were speaking french:
The non-Tony Stark guy : " We don't know who this guy is, we don't have any finger print matches or anything.
Stark : "Where is he? "
The non-Tony guy :"Over there! We don't know if he speaks english, french... hell we don't even know even if he can speak at all!!"
Stark : "can I talk to him?"
The non-Tony guy : "five minutes that's all."
So as you can tell... you guys didn't miss much by not understanding French!
