  1. Nope, not the X-Babies. I'm now more and more sure it's the original team in their blue and yellow outfits. They're being depicted as monsters and I'm sure it's Cyclops, Beast, and Archangel - possibly Ice Man's there too. It's a single panel with a side on view, close focused on the characters. They're crowded tightly around Marvel Girl in a single panel, she's just been hit or knocked out (or psychically attacked) and as she's coming too she sees them as grotesque versions of themselves (which is why it's stuck with me). My strongest early X-Men memories are of the time when Mimic was bothering them and then became a brief part of the team, so possibly it's from around that time frame? I was likely reading reprints of the series by Marvel UK or something around that time (I don't think it was from one of the Marvel Annuals I had).
  2. Not those, but I didn't realise it was such a reoccurring theme, as both those fit my crappy description Been searching the Marvel Wiki and can't find any reference to it in the pre-Second Genesis comics, so not even sure if it was Marvel Girl or Shadowcat now.
  3. Any early X-Men guru's here? On a nostalgia trip (thanks to that Argos catalogue archive!) and I'm scratching my head trying to place a scene from an early X-Men comic. Kitty Pryde or perhaps Jean Grey has a nightmare where Cyclops, Beast and Archangel are all distorted versions of themselves where they're leering over her with long elongated faces. I seem to remember it was only a singular panel as it's a dream sequence, but I can't find any reference to it anywhere. They look a bit like this (Cyclops definitely does in my head as I remember it); but the scene I'm on about isn't in that particular issue (in true Cover-Fake out style, that issue doesn't even have a scene like that with Nightcrawler being mobbed).
  4. It's a single and, as it's completely stand alone to the current Immortal Hulk run, I'd say it's likely be collected as part of an Absolute Carnage related TPB rather than in the Immortal Hulk ones. Ewing is also starting on Guardians of the Galaxy in 2020 - be very interesting to see what he's going to do with them
  5. Biggest problem I have with Marvel's digital trades is how downright lazy some of them are - their older collected editions are just the singles with the front and rear cover bolted on, and no actual extras like the variant covers, sketch notes etc. Thankfully they have improved for releases since 2017 onwards. DC on the other hand tend to include all that stuff as standard and it doesn't matter if you buy physical or digital, you're getting the same. That said they make some really odd decisions about not releasing stuff, as said. At the moment they've not bothered to release a Green Lantern Corps and Blue Beetle TPB digitally, despite everything else before and after them coming out. Granted neither of those titles set the world alight, but as a bit of a completionist for characters and series I enjoy it irks me that they just seem to be trying to wipe them from existence (the physical copy of GLC Darker Shade of Green is going for some silly money online as it's rarer than hens teeth). On another note entirely, DC have been smashing it out the park lately with their Variant Covers. I don't collected them, but the artwork in the solicits are a thing of beauty on times. Linking to them is a nightmare but the DCeased ones are sooo good
  6. His Gen X stuff for me - loved that series back in the day (and it hit Comixology a little while back in a collected edition). The stuff with Emplate (chronically underused as a character afterwards imo) and the mystery around Penance was really cool (although I remember the series falling apart quite a bit some time after).
  7. Just wanted to pile in on the Chris Bachallo love - I'm another who adores his artwork. He could illustrate the back of a crisp packet and I'd still buy it (my only other weakness like that is John Romita Jnr thanks to his work on the X-Men in the 90's). Made me quite sad to hear he went through a rough time last year when his wife died. Really pleased to see he's doing better now and back doing art for the latest Spider-Man story, so I'll be all over that when the trades hit. No one draws The Lizard quite like him
  8. This version of the song specifically
  9. That's how I remember playing it first off back in the day and don't recall it having any real negative effect in understanding what was going on. Really hyped for this - it'll be my first day one purchase in years.
  10. I know it's another Marvel event but I'm looking forward to War of Realms purely because I enjoyed Dauterman's work on Mighty Thor. Plus that panel as Malekith rides in on a tiger acting like the big man, and is the first to get Cap's shield right to the face
  11. Bendis is saying that all will be revealed gradually with each passing issue... but my guess is it probably won't (at least, not in any satisfactory way). The man has a history of retconning virtually everything he touched at Marvel, and I always feel like he's the kind of prolific writer that throws so much shit at the wall that some times it occasionally sticks. This feels like one of those times where he doesn't care about explaining it, he just wants to tell a particular story and damn to everything that gets in the way (like the time he mucked around with the Guardians of the Galaxy - then he moved off it and most of the things got brushed under the carpet like it never happened). After DC going through the Convergence and Rebirth stuff, it just feels weird for them to be letting him go down this route.
  12. I never got around to playing Season 3 of the Walking Dead (although I bought it on Steam a while back). Without spoilers, does season 3 have a defined ending (like the first game) or does it end of a cliff hanger that leads in to season 4? If it's a cluff hanger for a season that's never getting finished then I probably won't bother starting season 3 at all.
  13. The big bonus of guided view for me is it stops big surprises in multipanel pages from being ruined. I've never been able to stop my eye from being immediately drawn across the page where something big or important happens further across / down. I don't know how they do it (does someone have to map out each panel in every single book / issue)? but it's something I'd sorely miss if it ever went away.
  14. Just noticed that Amazon also appear to have slashed a lot of their digital releases to half price because of CMX's BOGOF. Might be useful if you wanted to pick up an uneven number of titles or something.
  15. Some bits of that just make me think how awesome it could be to get The Darkness made into a movie
  16. I've seen them remove stuff from sales as they go on - typically it's the longer running ones. There was a Marvel sale a while back that had over 1000 titles at the start, just before the end it was down to around 990 for some reason. Was it a Marvel book? It's probably just a coincidence it was one you were after but God knows why they do it (especially as it's not a physcial object they can run out of stock of)
  17. Utterly bonkers. Though can't imagine he'll have many problems with Big Dave being there - the fact that he's built like Bane can't be a coincidence
  18. Unlimited is US only at the moment - if you're in the US you can sign up to it for a monthly fee, but if you're not then you won't be able too. If you're in the UK and have told the app your location (been a while but I think it asks you right at the start?) then it shouldn't be trying to push Unlimited on you.
  19. Similarly the BPRD - Plague of Frogs omnibus editions (and the first omnibus of Hell of Earth which is quite new) are also available for £2.50 each. That's utterly mental for titles that are 400 pages per volume (and a fantastic read). From the IDW sales, the Turtles Collection omnibuses are down to £5.99 each for anyone who fancies them. The Transformers collection titles are down to £5.99 - £6.99. Each one of those is around 400 pages each and while it's not as bargainous as the Hellboy / BPRD stuff, it's still an great deal for anyone looking to catch up.
  20. People have probably seen but SDCC means lots of sales on Comixology - currently 60% off everything for DC, selected Marvel titles and IDW titles. Image are doing buy one and get one free. Dark Horse appear to have slashed most of their titles to below £3.00 Oh my poor wallet (again)
  21. Had no time to play this of late, but that all looked amazing and will drag me back in. That Fortuna song is amaze.
  22. Okay, now that makes me really want to read it just to find out what happens.
