From the House of Snark -- Here's some comments (in bold) on Marvel Comics product shipping April, 2004.


Written, illustrated & CARDSTOCK cover by JOE QUESADA
Inks by Danny Miki, color by Richard Isanove

In celebration of Daredevil's 40th Anniversary! Marvel Editor-in-Chief and acclaimed writer of NYX Joe Quesada makes his long-awaited return to the drawing board after nearly four years for a very special and very personal DD tale. For the first time writing AND illustrating, DD legend Quesada crafts a mystery set during the deadliest heat wave in NYC history. A serial killer is on the loose pushing a city already past its breaking point over the edge, and Daredevil must battle the heat and fear to keep a crumbling Hell's Kitchen together… by any means necessary!

32 PGS./MARVEL PSR…$3.50

So fifty cents gets you some cardstock, huh? I wonder why Jimmy Palmiotti isn't inking this. That seems like it would be a natural.

Superstars Mark Millar & Terry Dodson team for SPIDER-MAN's debut in an ongoing MARVEL KNIGHTS series. This action-packed, hyper-realistic tale finds Peter Parker forced to face the cruel realities that wearing the Spider-Man mask and web-shooters brings to his personal life. Featuring a brutal confrontation between Spider-Man and the Green Goblin!

32 PGS./MARVEL PSR…$2.99

When I think "hyper-realistic" and "brutal," why do I not think of Terry Dodson?

One year has passed since the Chitauri invasion and much has changed inside the corridors of the Triskelion, leading to questions about Iron Man's health, Thor's "godhood" and the relationship between Cap and the Wasp(?)! ULTIMATES Volume 2 focuses on the global reaction to the team, and the burgeoning new super heroes and super-teams like the Ultimate Defenders and Ultimate Captain Britain popping up all over the world!

32 PGS./MARVEL PSR+…$2.99

If they can keep to a monthly schedule, I'd be willing to bet people would care again.

NEW X-MEN #155 & 156
Covers & pencils by SALVADOR LARROCA

"BRIGHT NEW MOURNING" pts. 1 & 2 (of 2)
In the aftermath of Magneto's rampage upon NYC and the Xavier Institute, Cyclops & Emma find themselves at a crossroads. Should the school be rebuilt? Should they continue on as X-Men? And how will it affect their blossoming relationship?

32 PGS. (each)/MARVEL PSR…$2.25 (each)

Will there be a more dramatic drop in orders than the one from Grant Morrison's last issue to the first Chuck Austen issue? I can tell you right now that comics would be better off if every single person who orders this finds something else to do and gets the fuck out of comics. Because they're only hurting the industry.

The world is still shaking from the titanic battle of Hyperion and Dr. Spectrum. Is Earth big enough for two such powerful beings? And who is Power Princess? Find out here!


"The world is still shaking from the titanic battle of Hyperion and Dr. Spectrum." Uh, no, the world is still sleeping from the utterly torpid first six issues of this snooze-fest.
