“Oklahodahio” is legitimately funny.
Reminds me of Badiddlyboing, Odawidaho.
Damn that's hilarious.
I haven't read any of the recent League books. This last issue has a fake letters column? Ha!

I’ve read the previews, we are in for a wild ride
I hope it’s awesome. I’m a big X-Men fan, but the books have just been so disappointing over the recent years. Not to throw shade at the creators who worked on the books, because there were a lot of really great talents on them, but it just hasn’t felt right in a long time for Marvel’s mutants.
Seriously. I've been Bart Simpson at Kamp Krusty rocking himself back and forth repeating "Krusty is coming. Krusty is coming" for months.
But Hickman's a lot better than Krusty the clown. Woo. Bring it on.
I seriously cannot wait for this to come out. The X-men have needed a good story for a long time and Hickman is the perfect person to do it. I'm a huge fan of all his other work, his F4 especially. It's a good time to be an X-fan
At my age, I didn't think I could be as hyped by a one page pitch as I am by this.
I forget if it was in the preview book or another interview, but I heard the House of X/Power of X books described as the end of the "Extinction Era" of X-Men that started back with House of M... and thank fucking God for it. While a good story hook, I think that ending it after Avengers vs X-Men would have been the right way to do it (as flawed as that story was). Going back to it again after Secret Wars and then again in the new Uncanny run just made it feel so goddamned tired. I'm very excited for a new "era" of X-Books to take the stage and hopefully revitalize the line in a way that's not as transient as some of the other big moments have been. And god damn if anyone can do it, I trust Hickman for sure.
Getting every Scottie Young cover.
Definitively cannot wait for Hickman's X-men after the Satan's Diarrhea that Rosenberg's run was.
Next week can't come soon enough. Haven't been this hyped for a book since Morrison's Lantern.
I will literally read any comic Hickman writes, and I am excited he is doing a long project at Marvel.
Just hope East of West, Manhattan Projects and and Black Monday Murders will still ship
I haven’t read X-Men since Morrison. I tried a little of Bendis’ fun, but it wasn’t for me. The X-Men have been a mess for too long. Looking forward to this
I'll be honest, I liked Rosenberg's run on Uncanny, but I'm SO glad that we're getting this next.
So what titles am I looking for that start this? The two he mentions in this letter? Or Uncanny? Something else?
Same here! This might be the most excited I've been for an X-Men event in over a decade. 😊
I just can't wrap my head around the senseless killing off of so many characters. It's the state of the industry with new writers coming in wanting absolute creative freedom but killing off characters that had great development and writing in the past off-screen or just to tick another box of 'we need to make it feel like mutants are facing extinction this issue' has felt nothing but cheap and insulting.
Triage was one of the greats to come out of Cyclops's short-lived 'school' alongside Goldballs and Tempus. Rahne is a major part of the X-family. Jamie became a big figure in the extended X-family during the great era of the mid-late 2000s with X-Factor Investigations, and the list goes on and on. I hope X-Man and Legion's last act of bravado to mark the end of this dark period of pre-Hickman X-Men is to 'reset' everything that's transpired since over X-Men Disassembled.
what is uncanny x men?
I've stopped reading X-Men comics pretty much since Death of X, so i'm really not up to date (didn't look into Age of X-Man etc), do we know if House of X and Powers of X will rely on previous big events, or if it is a kind of relaunch ?
As someone who hasn’t read x-men for years because of how it’s appeared is this going to be confusing to start reading?
Never read X-Men before but I am sold on this. Cannot wait.
I know Hickman likes to tackle multiple books at a time, but if one of them is a monthly Uncanny I'll be there for it.
under a harsh light it is false
Under any light, really.
Stuff like this makes me wonder what an Ennis run of Captain America would look like.
Jimmy's time to shine!
How is this series? Any good?
I really liked the first panel on the next page where it zooms out slightly on Clark's face looking at the reader winking
The next panel is great too as the publisher basically is like "wtf are you doing" when she sees Clark mugging the "camera".
Is this a maxi series or an ongoing?
Ooooooooh nice connection between this and the other Soule She-Hulk post. I see what you did here
Ew, don't kiss him. You don't know where he's been.
They never show him spontaneously make out with Steve Rogers.
Civil War Warzones and other Secret Wars ties in were pretty good. Except the ending of Secret Wars’ Planet Hulk tie in. It was great up until that point.
Is that She-Hulk or the Green Gaurdian of the Galaxy?
"Whatever it takes"
When did tony bleach hos hair??
You can see the robert downey jr influence in this artist’s rendition of tony stark imo
Nice one! :)
I'm going to make an edit in my comment on my post to link to this.
I'm assuming they just drew the 616 versions of the characters without having knowledge of their Ultimate versions (which happens a lot in Ultimate comics cough Doctor Doom cough) since Peter also has the proportions of an adult and not the big head Ultimate Spider-Man has usually. That's meeting Land way more than half way though.
Spidey legs should be spread to show his package, to match Kittys ass shot.
I agree and also there’s a lot more wrong with it as well. Its awfully flat and static and the background looks like he just ran a photo of the city through a filter.
Haven't read the ultimate stuff, but...honestly, has Kitty Pride looked like a teen since the Claremont era?
She looks closer to 15 than most other comic book characters I've seen. I honestly was wondering if they de-aged her since last I heard (dont read Marvel and havent for a long long time) she was in her 30s or something now.
Shadowcat is a badass name, eat a dick Spidey
That's just comics. Hope Summers is, at most, 16 years old right now. This is how she is most commonly drawn. Ultimate Gwen is probably around 16 too and this is how she looked in her first appearance.
Comic artists always draw young people as looking older than they are.
Greg Land’s art tracing really turns me off of a comic with good writing, like the current Symbiote Spider-Man book.
You can shit on Rob Liefeld all you want, but at least he can draw and has an artstyle compared to Land
Well, knowing how much he swipes from adult films and magazines it's no surprise Kitty's representation at all...
The ass shot is totally unnecessary, but it's actually her face/mouth that bothers me here. I mean, at least Land avoided his favorite 'O' face, but her expression doesn't match anything she's saying, like, at all.
Also, what's she looking at? She's talking to Spider-Man directly. Why draw her looking off panel?
Greg Land had the incredible skill of keeping me, one of the biggest Iron Man and X-Men fanboys out there, away from thoss comics for years. He sucks so badly he totally destroyed Gillen's or Bunn's good work. It's the same for Ramos on Spider-Man, but at least Ramos doesn't openly trace porn. It's a shame Land is the artist who drew the most X-Men comics ever
Ik I'm gonna get downvoted but I feel like a lot of artist draw with their penis instead of their heads.
That looks like a 15 year old being hideously exploited, if that's what ya mean.
Ok, for the record, I do usually tend to let just a little bit slide when it comes to stylisation in artwork, like how the character's drawn? It can be a bit hellish trying to balance out the old 'pleasing style vs accurate portrayal,'
But the composition of this is 100% inexcusable; she's a kid being made to look like a pin-up girl in terms of what her outfit is doing and the whole 'titilating cheekiness' in expression.
Worst part is...this is exactly what this outfit is designed for. Not to make the character look or feel good, for her to have the right to choose to say 'my body isn't for you to oggle,' but...well. In fact this is that argument being used against itself right here.
Christ am I glad they've been taking some steps in the right direction since (Captain Marvel, Batgirl, Spider-Gwen ect...)
Wtf is wrong with Shadowcat as a name? But that's not the worst teenager I've seen drawn in a big two comic.
Greg Land is simply the worst at everything he draws.
I wonder what porno he traced it from.
It's deffs weird as fuck if you've read like the Clairmont run and you've seen kitty acting like an actual child
Fuck Greg land
I absolutely hate invisible woman and her constant orgasm face in his issues
Camera angle for a 15 year old issue aside her face looks old, way too angular, and nothing like Kitty Pryde. She's also just too big. She looks like wonder woman or a Real Housewife. Also weirdly looks like she has chest hair lol
Isn’t Greg Land the guy who traces porn magazines and Sports Illustrated issues?
I’m guessing he traced an adult magazine featuring a woman being penetrated at that angle.
The sad thing is that Land CAN produce some really great art, if you look back at his earlier stuff before he started tracing porn his stuff was actually pretty good.
So many other problems other than the obvious porno trace - the background does not look like the same image as the characters in the foreground. Spidey looks so bad. Why didn't change the face at least, have her looking at the person he's talking too? The web is not coming out of Spidey's wrist. Greg Land can ruin great writing with his horrible art. He cheapens the value of comics he works on. The fact he gets work over people who work so much harder - especially on big titles like this, is offensive.
Marvel tearing down Marvel’s history seems to be what it does these days
Is it bad that the first thing I noticed is not the ass, but Spidey’s wierd detached looking head.
I just realized Bendis teased Kitty becoming The Shroud three years before it happened.
I don’t think any X-men in this continuity wore a costume like that
Cough cough hirohiko araki cough cough
The writing is also bad, this reads like a small talk that one would have in a cafe, not swinging between skyscrappers and 150 mph.
Why is her ass out like that and we don't see Spider-man crotch? Why can't I see Spidey's crotch?!
Also, it looks like they were drawn last. Why? They take up so much of the page.
https://youtu.be/bshNOtERfVI this video sums up what lead Greg to being a terrible artist
My question is, where are her pants?
About 3 weeks ago I read a comic with a female character making that exact face.
Look took me by surprise. Like...for what reason?
I like it
She looks anywhere between 15 and 25 considering there's only so much subtle characteristics you can convey in this kind of comic art style, she's probably too tall and of course the real problem is she's showing a whole lot of ass and considering she's supposed to be 15 it's a bit creepy yes but TBH I've seen so, so much worse I'd be willing to give this a pass depending on how the rest of the comic is.
My problem is that her expression (that Land had to trace) doesn't match what is happening. She's not just swinging through the air, but having a casual conversation with someone as she does. Her face doesn't match that.
There is only so much reference for all the situations a superhero comic requires you to draw. Every artist has to know how to push or reinterpret a reference to fit what you need. You can't do that with tracing.
She isn't super curvy and her face has a youthful look. Not the same teen style Bagkey perfected for the Spidey Friends in Ultimate Spidey but I've seen a lot worse from Land. Pixie in that X-Men cover was far worse.
I mean yeah it does look like a 15 year old. Have you seen 15 year olds lately?
Greg Land should start drawing manga.
I mean, yeah? I've seen plenty of teenagers that look like that.
So you have never seen a 15 year old dressed like this? perhaps you might want to walk outside sometime. She was engaged to Colossus for some time , no outrage then? She has been 13 , 15 , early 20's....I wouldn't let my daughter walk out the door like that , but literally almost every high school cheerleader outfit looks a hell of a lot like that. So if you think this does not represent reality you are very , very out of touch with reality. So yes at every JV football game that is pretty much what a 15 year old looks like on the sideline. Quite a few in the summer as well. Shit in the early 1990's at the outdoor parties many dressed like this. My first wife did and so did all her friends and that was 1990 and yeah they were 15-17. Art is reflecting reality , it sounds like your issues are with reality.
I went to my LCS a few years ago and there were some local artists there.
My daughter who was three at the time, wanted to be drawn as Supergirl. So the artist drew my 3 year old “all grown up”, but kept the facial features all the same (still a bit of pudge in the cheeks etc).
It was so unsettling. Like. Why? Just draw my kid in a Supergirl costume dude.
Anyway, that drawing was “lost” pretty quickly. Seeing this post reminded me of it.
I just finished reading Invincible yesterday. Great stuff.
Really cool but the lips are too red
Figured this was worth posting with the news of Allred writing/drawing a Bowie book.
You remind me of the babe.
Didnt this already happen? I have that book.
Coronation was the better series.
Obligatory Bowie bulge song!
Tra la la
Love to see a conversation between the snakes and bats. That dog is funny
A bit more + the snakes' previous appearances (can't find a way to link to imgur albums now):
Dr. Strange: https://i.imgur.com/IR80l4N.jpgJessica Jones: https://i.imgur.com/XNSCOCp.jpg, https://i.imgur.com/UEi6xhd.jpg, https://i.imgur.com/VUeSaLB.jpg
So... whats up with the snakes? Are they actually evil or just incredibly horny all the time?
Not gonna lie, I'm enjoying the hell out of this series so far. It's not flashy or dashy, which I can semi-blame on the muted color palette, but other than that throughout these last two issues I've really enjoyed the decent humor pairing with the who's who/what's what of heist mechanics in the MU. I'm definitely looking forward to this series gaining more steam.
So they are the Worm Guys from MiB basically.
