ratcreature: RatCreature is buried in comics, with the text: There's no such thing as too many comics.  (comics)
[livejournal.com profile] imadra_blue has asked to spread the word about her plans for [livejournal.com profile] comicstore_news an all comic fandom newsletter. She's still looking for some editors.

It would be really cool if comic fandom got a newsletter.
ratcreature: RatCreature as Spidey (spidey)
I really shouldn't be looking at comic news sites right now, however, on newsarama, I just read that Chuck Austen will be leaving Uncanny X-Men next spring, and that Chris Claremont and Alan Davis will take over. Now, I hate Chuck Austen less ferociously than some do, however his basic attitude towards both character continuity and fans who care about the characters is atrocious (I've commented on this before), and his current run on Uncanny X-Men is just bad. I mean, I picked up some UXM issues after X2 came out, to see whether I'd like the comics, and they just don't work, and I'm anything but a hardcore X-Men comic fan (as in I've read probably less than a dozen X-Men issues) taking offense at a bold new direction or arcane continuity errors.

Anyway, from what I've heard Chris Claremont's writing on his last run is seen less fondly than his first, and I'm not really familiar with either, but I don't think Chris Claremont can make UXM worse than it is right now. And what I've seen of Alan Davis' art is quite good. So I might give UXM another try next spring.
