Let's not get drastic here. Bitching aside, I'd settle for a decent colorist before we start handing the book over to fucking savages like Land. If I said that for the last issue I was just being melodramatic.

I know Brian Wood is taking over that one and Ultimate Comics X-Men, not sure about the rest of the Team Cyke books.

I've heard good things about the interior artist, not sure if he's the same one who did the cover.

It's the same guy. Clay Mann and he's totally forgettable.

The creative team isn't meant to be the selling point here. Gambit is. People that like Gambit would buy barf smeared on newsprint if it had Gambit on the cover in big, gaudy, purple letters.

I believe Brian Wood is writing the Current Age of Apocalypse stuff? And I am digging that, so it could be a good change. As far as the Gambit book. I give every book at least a couple issues, unless it is really bad, but I'll check it out. I am putting more stock in Hawkeye at the moment. :lol:

Oh that's the one! I actually find myself enjoying Alpha and Omega quite a bit, it isn't great, but I have enjoyed the read. I can't help feeling it was drug out a little too far, but I can't wait to see what happens at the end now that everything seems to have come to a head. Course I am easily and generally speaking like everything comic related!

It's not bad. Just wholly unremarkable in almost every way except for the art within the construct.

I'm pretty sure Higgins was just joking. All Land does is trace off himself now that he has ripped off a sufficient amount of porn and issues of Cosmo.

Maybe I just got used to it or something, but it doesn't seem as obvious as before.

I'm not saying he's a master of his form or anything, I just don't mind it.

Catching up on WatXM...the words are so good, but the pictures! The pictures! Bachalo needs to stop drawing. Today.

Bradshaw's four issues were comic book perfection. I can't wait for him to get back on it. Glad Bachalo is being relegated to shitty Beast Vs. Sabretooth one shots and AvX crossover shit. I wish we weren't in the minority though, bro. The rest of the internet can't get enough of that guy's fucking messes.

Sweet, I think he's growing on a lot of people now that he's working on a mainstream title.

I understood the subtext, I just figured that between this and other threads like the Avengers thread, it was open season for pointless trolling.

Oh, okay Eric, you can shut the fuck up you fat good for nothing slob, go get piss drunk and die in a corner because that's all you're good for you're unattractive and nobody likes you. The only thing that's worse than you is your terrible opinions. Fuck you and suck on my dong-saeng.
