But it’s a movie trailer that will BLOW YOU AWAY!

Good points.

Yep, Heroes is coming back, and considering Bryan Fuller, the guy every one pinned their hopes and dreams on to save it is not…I have even less reason to watch it than I did before.

(I admit I was a fan the first season, but those since have taught me the error of my ways, as I’ve watched it get shittier* and shittier and…)

* Not a word I would normally use, but no polite equivalent suffices.

But I like watching trailers!

Wait, I thought Marvel specifically DID get the reprint rights to Marvelman/Miracleman. And that it was looking likely that Gaiman would finish writing the storyline he started way back when. Which seems pretty exciting to me…

You really should have hung out and gotten drunk with the artists over at Booth 1250. They know a pirate who can bring rum.

Look, there was a teaser trailer for Tron: Legacy, I’m satisfied.

“is there a comics company with a better track record of digital delivery than Marvel?”

Unfortunately, no. And say what you will, but at least they’re trying.

And at least I’ve heard of Marvelman. I had to look up T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents on Wikipedia. Can’t say I’m impressed.

I don’t understand why DC would bring back the Multiverse…then shoehorn all these other properties into their universe.

Also, if Marvelman/Miracleman is NOT reprints? Then, fuck it. I’m not interested.

You missed

ITEM!Hot chick declared Booster Gold’s number 1 fan and put on the cover to sell t-shirts. Fans utterly confused by this.

Also isn’t way too early to call the Milestone character merger a failure? I mean right now it’s not that much worse than the Charleston merger (need a villain or a sacrifice for a big event? Score!) or the Captain Marvel merger (we don’t have a clue what to do with these guys. Hey, they’ve got some cool villains! And we can hit Superman with magic thunder!)

So.. these ‘Red’ Marvel characters.. Are these guys anything like purple smurfs or what?

Didn’t DC once get their hands on the rights to Judge Dredd?

As far as I know, the rights for Miracleman are tied up by Todd McFarlane. There was some fuss between him and Gaiman about them. If they are not going to finish the FUCKING EXCELLENT Miracleman run I’m not interested. Any bets on just how quickly Marvel can suck away everything interesting about the character?

The legal issues surrounding Marvelman/Miracleman are mostly settled at this point, though, as Gaiman commented, McFarlane could still try and sue again.

Barring that, reprints of the 80s series would just require Marvel reaching appropriate compensation agreements with the creators involved (Gaiman, Leach, Davis, Totleben; Moore, so far as I know, gave up his rights to Gaiman, and he earlier said that he’d support reprints and that his money should just be given to Mick Anglo). And Marvel has enough money to reach an agreement with McFarlane, one expects.

Bottom line, I can’t imagine Marvel would have gone to all the trouble of buying Marvelman and making a huge deal out of it if they didn’t expect to be able to reprint the most valuable stuff (Quesada commented on CBR that this news was potentially very bad for people like himself who paid $200+ for the out-of-print trades).

Oh, and Gaiman and Mark Buckingham have both said that they hope this will give them a chance to finish their story.

Ah, but where else could I get signatures by Jeff Smith, Sergio Aragones, Brian Lee O’Malley, and Matt Fraction, and forget to talk to Robert Downey Jr. due to seeing one of them?

Admittedly, the Kevin Smith panel demonstrated your thesis very well.

Will daredevil be Redevil or Dared?

I’m thinking the former if he is going to be an evil twin and the latter if he will have a skateboard and appeal to “kids these days with their music and hair”.

The real reason Marvel bought Marvelman is simple, they’re going to blackmail Alan Moore by threatening to let Jeph Loeb write the series if Moore doesn’t agree to work for them.

Okay hate to say it but with how well Zeb has handled New Mutants he could POTENTIALLY pull off a decent Marvelman comic…

… I feel scorn heading my way somehow

Flip The PAge: The thing is MGK’s mock Marvelman story isn’t all that far off from what Moore already did with the character. So if Zeb did write that story it would be completely in keeping with the Marvelman saga.

I haven’t read any Wells to make a judgment on the man, so I’d gladly read whatever he had to write. The only reason I haven’t so far is Venom does nothing for me and I’ve had an X-book embargo since the early 2000s (with a few exceptions).
