Once and Future is really, really good.

Hell of a snipe, I'm referring to the Humble Bundle posted on the previous page

It's not that kind of test.

I generally like Rick Remender but I think I'll be dropping The Scumbag as it really emphasizes all of his worst edgelord tendencies. The idea of a total piece of poo poo ending up with super powers is fine, but this month's issue introduced a group of antagonists who might as well be called the social justice warriors and I'm not digging it.

That's good to hear, I had picked up the first issue and liked it but it's nice to know I'm not missing anything.

Stillwater is good, by the way.

Was it Remender or Nick Spencer who pulled that same trick in Captain America?

I think Spencer. It was in the Falcon Cap series right after Steve got de-aged/Nazified IIRC.

Speaking of Remender how did Deadly Class wind up? I really enjoyed the first... five (?) trades I ran and of course liked the only season we got of the TV show.

Still going but on hiatus since last May (apparently to return next month). I kind of forget what was going on in recent issues but I must have enjoyed it enough to keep my subscription active.

The Scumbag is definitely Remender playing with all of his impulses for good or bad. I'm enjoying it, but I haven't read the latest issue yet.

Origins and Wynd are both pretty good. We Only Find Them when They're Dead is amazing of course, but I think most everyone already knows that.

Sounds good, I hadn't heard of it, but I've been under a rock. I'm even an Al Ewing fan, since he's written for good ol' 2000AD. I may have never read a Boom comic, for some odd reason.

On Remender, I had the first Fear Agent library thingy, and I realized it was too mammoth for me to actually hold and read. I think it weighed 200 pounds, I sold it. But I will read it digitally sometime.

Decided to try maniac of new york and will say that I also found it pretty good so far

It was all going well, and then the parademons showed up

I gave up Scumbag after the first issue. Whoever said edgelord is right. The book just wants to shout at the reader what a loving awful arsehole the protagonist is over and over again to the point that each panel just felt like a giant "gently caress you" being shouted in my ear.
Picked up the first issue of Manic of New York due to being recommended here and enjoyed it quite a bit. Tried to get issue two but it was sold out but my LCBS is getting more in.

I just realized I never actually saw the Peter David/Todd McFarlane debate despite constantly hearing about it ever since it happened. I never knew it was on youtube in it's entirety. It's pretty wild, and I wish there were more of these legendary panels recorded for posterity.

Does anybody remember the name of the comic where it was about a guardswoman protecting her princess/queen and on they're on the run with the twist said royalty had also been turned into a tiger?

Isola! I was just cleaning my library up a little yesterday and unfortunately there hasn't been a new issue in awhile. Double unfortunately, this is because the author is a COVID long-hauler.

Yeah Brendan Fletcher has had a really lovely time with Covid, last I heard he was still having issues and he got it a year ago.
