The Weekend Comics Chat Open Thread - the Apples and Oranges Edition!
Hey everyone! How's it going? What did you get to read this week? Did you finally get to watch SUPERMAN RETURNS? Tell us!
I read the new GHOST RIDER #1 by Daniel Way (writer), Javier Saltares (breakdowns) and Mark Texiera (finishes) with a cool cover by Mark Texiera. It's a good start, I guess, but it seems lately that new Marvel Comics series only give you half a story in their first issues - or is that just me? Sorta comparing apples and oranges, but last week's ATOM #1 had tons of background, great characters and a interesting and intriguing story crammed into the first issue and just seemed to give more "bang for the buck" as it were. Of course, Ghost Rider is a very cool character visually, but Marvel just seems not to know what exactly to do with him or where to take him...
And was that DOOP?
