I am very underwhelmed with this choice.

I don't really get what that guy said?

Maybe it's because his english is not the best or the most linear (not that my grammar or the grammar of anyone else is the best anyway),but what did he say? I mean,what did it mean?

I figured he was yet another self-labeled "hipster" hating on Nolan's Batman. There's a ton of them on this site. Anything that doesn't perfectly mimic Grant Morrison's cartoony Bat God is garbage apparently.

Sorta. Was working as more of a contractor than an employee though. Made a mistake once and was basically not invited to return for more work. Didn't feel that bad about it though because I was in school and had other stuff going on.

Not surprised that it didn't top the first. The first caught the world by surprise. It also benefitted from a better director. This just solidifies my belief that directors have a greater impact on movies than the actors themselves.

And I'm just going to throw out a prediction that this thread gets 2-5 responses, as is typical of most FF related threads on here. No wonder Marvel is making nothing but Avengers and X-Men books these days.

"Fraction will be leaving Marvel's First Family, and the makeshift team that replaced them, behind. Fantastic Four #12 and FF #11 will be the last written by Fraction, so he'll be off the books completely as of next month. However, as he's already plotted ahead of his exit, he'll retain a story credit until the arcs have concluded around each book's issue #16."

"Replacing Fraction on Fantastic Four is Karl Kesel, while Lee Allred will join his brother Mike on FF."

So let me get this right, Fraction has plotted the story through 16 books, but he's going to step back and allow someone else to finish his story. This makes me kind of sad. I think Matt had an interesting story to tell in both books, but it looks like he's being pulled early so he can manage other "more important" projects. As is often the case, Marvel's First Family is getting the shaft.

I will mention that I think Karl Kesel is capable of steering the ship to a satisfying conclusion. If anyone followed his runs on Adventures of Superman and Superboy in the 90's, you know he can tell a fun story. I'm glad he's making a comeback in comics, I just not happy with how it's happening.

That being said, Marvels frenetic release schedule is really exposing itself here. For being the supposed #1 comic publisher, their latest release schedule has been the absolute worst of any company I've seen. Eventually, pulling these stunts is going to bite them is the ass. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow. But if they keep it up, it will.

Personally, I like to start when a particular writer starts a run. It's generally much easier to understand. If he/she references something from a past issue from another writer, they usually do a much better job giving you a proper recap. I'm not going to just "jump in" and start paying $4 a month on a story that is already halfway done. Works for some people maybe, but not me.

How good is the Image comics app and website? Frankly, I haven't seen anything beat Comixology when it comes to ease of use and quality HD pictures.

Not a huge fan of villains turning good. Can't recall an example where it worked particularly well. This applies to Catwoman too.
