    i really liked leonardi's work on the original run, but here it seemed sloppy.

    some responses to what i’ve read

    saying that x happened in a story because a writer wants/loves/hates y is an unprovable statement and really nothing more than projecting personal prejudices on to...

    thanks for the recommendations, if i'm feeling good about the whole superhero thing again after spider-verse, i'll grab some tpbs. i'll admit that when i first heard that he'd introduced the totem...

    it depends on how i feel after spiderverse. i've heard a lot of great things about the JMS era, and i've heard a lot of complaints. but then...that's pretty much every story isn't it?

    would you...

    nah, i was kidding MoS. from what i've seen, that's not your style. you're pretty fair.

    what i've read of spiderverse so far seems to have more balance than "old man logan", which was one bleak...

    i know what you mean- at the time there was a huge backlash of horrified children and parents. now, all of those grown fans consider it a classic of sorts and that is partly due to the sudden...

    i think it's all context cyberhubs. the transformer cartoon is an example i was thinking of too...that was mostly an order from on high for merchandising reasons. so while it may not have been for...

    so would that mean my tastes are suspect if i was a fan of that story? ha. as i said, i've been away from comics for a long time so i don't know this story. the last big slaughter type story i read...

    hollywood films are notoriously safe. character growth over the length of a franchise is risky- you risk alienating what people liked about the first one. the rule of thumb seems to be- if it was...

    spider-verse's plot formula seems to be essentially the same as watchmen's. that doesn't make it uninteresting or bad in a literary sense, but i can also understand people not having a taste for it....

    this. this is absolutely where you and i have common ground.

    it's just that our mileage varies for what those good and bad ways are.

    i was going to ask you to point to any part of my reasoning that stated "killing is the only way to raise stakes" (as a professional writer/producer, i choose my words carefully) but as you say, it's...

    no doubt. i'm happy to hear of examples where the threat of death was imminent and keenly felt by the reader, but no characters died. let's start with a cross section of 5 examples and discuss from...

    yeah, we're about to head in circles, but i'll make the point again that the darker the threat, the brighter the the triumph. otherwise everything is just sort of...beige.

    nobody is making the...

    "show don't tell" is an interesting technique to discuss, because it's so often misunderstood. traditionally it means not using expositional dialogue and prose, rather the communication is in a...

    you guys are definitely making me think here. a lot of this comes down to personal perspective, but hopefully i can at least open the door to understanding the other side a bit.

    i can kind of see where the anger is coming from regarding the deaths of childhood characters, but it all comes from how you choose to look at it.

    why is a hero dying or failing a "slap in the...
