Spider-Mickey?


I'm sure you all heard the news today... Disney purchased Marvel Entertainment for $4,000,000,000.

Yahoo

Wall Street Journal

What does this mean for the publishing arm? Probably nothing. We were around when Time/Warner purchased DC Comics. We said "Finally, surely NOW we'll see nationally-televised ads for comic books!' But we were young and naive then, and giant corporations tend to let their different departments function without any overlap. I guess we'll see.

But just imagine the crossover possibilities... like...

HOWARD THE DUCK VS. DONALD DUCK!

(Thanks to all of you who sent this story in!)

Yeah, and to be replaced by another idiot, Robert A. "Bob" Iger.

Put a fork in me, I am done with comics! Everything is DARK! or EXTREME! Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely's Batman and Robin? *PUKE* and were the heck is AllStar Batman and Robin? I just left a turd in the punchbowl and need to wipe. And Marvel is retelling the Spiderman Clone Saga,,,AGAIN!...are you kidding me???! That sucked the 1st time and 2nd and 3rd time!!!! Kaine? Kaine? Who's Kaine? Who cares??! Here one, "Kaine Marvel come up with a new idea...Duh"?

I guess I will just wait and get my tickets for "Spidey on Ice" (Remember, you heard it here 1st people!)

Wake me up when things get better..Zzzzzzz

And not to point out the obvious, but "comics" aren't just Marvel and DC, Anonymous One. Sounds like you're tired of them.

Sorry, that is a typo...it should read Obnoxious One.
Yes Bill, you are correct sir. It is current Marvel and DC I have grown (*groan*) tired of...There is still plenty of GREAT comics out there...Walking Dead, Powers,INVINCIBLE....not to forget great Classic DC and Marvel collections...Now back to reading my Marvel Masterworks: Iron Man Volume 3..ahhhh good stuff....
