Fantastic Four Relaunched By James Robinson And Leonard Kirk In February, Announced For Real This Time - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors
Big fan of Robimson, and the FF have always been my favorite team...may be time to look in.The FF evicted from the Baxter Building and facing the Avengers. The Thing in prison for murder. Johnny Storm powerless. Dragon Man sentenced to death. The imagination of Sue and Reed Richards’ son Franklin becoming all too real while his younger sister is on her own.
Ultimately, Robinson reveals, his upcoming run is about “a family finding the strength to face adversity through the help and love of each other.”
Debuting in February as part of Marvel’s “All-New Marvel Now” initiative, the new Fantastic Four series brings together Robinson and artist Leonard Kirk to add to the legacy of the supergroup Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created in 1961.
That’s a pretty nifty Alex Ross cover there, too. Robinson tells them;
“We’re going to see the fragmentation of the family due to villainous outside forces that are slowing picking at them and eroding them,” Robinson says. “The arc I’m going to be telling is basically the fall and the rise of the Fantastic Four, and especially the fall and rise of Johnny Storm.”
Is This The End For Stormwatch? (UPDATE) - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors
Wait. Why does old school LOBO seem to be part of this group? Is that failure pile over already? Can someone who is in the know let me in on what Lobo's status is?
Drew Goddard in Talks to Pen Marvel’s DAREDEVIL Netflix Series
Ok, so despite the iffyness of S.H.I.E.L.D. it looks like Marvel is interested in bringing a-list to it's tv properties. I like the choice, but I really woulda been keen if they had reached out to Joe Carnahan and made him the Whedon of the Netflix arena.
Oh yeah, article points out that he and Whedon have history together so yeah...makes even more sense
Right now i'm hoping that shield is just going through the traditional whedon slow start. Im still watching it but its not a must see each week

What's happened since then, I have no idea. As much as I love Jim Starlin, he ain't the writer he used to be.
Yeah, well they had teased some battle to the death with new Lobo vs LoboCLASSIC...seems pretty fragging dumb. Nobody in their right minds would prefer that poncey little git to the Main Man. But then the NEW 52(rhymes with peeeeeeeeeeee ewwwwwwwwwww) has been synonomous with bad decisions and shortsightedness. I read this morning that the Metal Men were coming back. WHY? Hawkman/Question/Demon/Hawk&Dove/Blackhawks/JSA and so on are properties that DC trots out everytime they decide to try to make themselves relevant again just to cancel 14 issues in. I truly wish at this point that Marvel would just buy the DC universe. As many problems as I have with Marvel at least they have a vision. Hell, Disney will more than likely buy out Warner Brothers at some point so all I have to do is keep breathing to see that happen. Thanks for the info on Stormwatch...shame to hear that about Starlin, but I couldn't imagine that his VERY 70's mindset would translate well. Hell, looking back on it, for me that was Marvel's golden age. Gerber w/Man Thing & Howard the Duck, Power Man & Iron Fist, all that groovy space stuff. End of rant.
It's really a bad situation that's getting worse. I'm down to, I think, 4 books they're still putting out: Batman (main title), Wonder Woman, Swamp Thing and Animal Man. And all of them I'm considering dropping. Except maybe Wonder Woman. But, man, this past week was the first time since 1998 that I did not buy the new issue of John Constantine's book. I gave the new 52 Constantine an honest try, but it's just not the same anymore. Maybe it's selling better than the Vertigo book did, but, ****, it's a watered-down version of him. I can't do it anymore.has been synonomous with bad decisions and shortsightedness. I read this morning that the Metal Men were coming back. WHY?

It was, but that stuff doesn't work anymore. Comics have evolved differently. I read Starlin's old Warlock stuff today and I still love the **** out of it, but I am constantly aware of how much text there is and how much of it is actually somewhat extraneous. If I tried giving something like that to Booby, I don't think she'd get through the first issue. Same thing can be said for Steranko and the Claremont X-Men.Thanks for the info on Stormwatch...shame to hear that about Starlin, but I couldn't imagine that his VERY 70's mindset would translate well.

I hear Starlin is going to do something with Thanos for Marvel soon. I'll give that a try, but... yeah, it's been a while since he's written anything I really liked.

Not sure what the tremendous push behind this one is. They have been working it for a while now. Never experienced her in the funny books. Is there anything here????
