Heroes Volume 4 (Fugitives) In Two Sentences

February 3, 2009

Umm, so to sum up the episode in one sentence:

“Peter, it’s OK to let go.  You know how to fly you idiot!”


Really, NBC? Really?

What’s sad is that you got rid of  your two best writer/producers (Jeph Loeb and Jesse Alexander) and you think you’re going to be able to make a go of it with this fourth season/volume.  Well, I got news for you, it’s gonna be a long Spring…


Jeph Loeb And Marvel Own The Diamond Top Five For November

December 18, 2008

The Diamond Comics Distributors Direct Market sales chart for November (Newsarama) was released and Marvel owns the top 5 slots.

Marvel comics dollar share is 36.96% while their unit share is 42.90% (versus DC at 34.21% and 34.52%).*

Jeph Loeb, specifically, has two books on the Top Five list.  #1 Ultimatum and #3 Hulk.

#2 was Batman R.I.P (DC), #4 is Wolverine by Mark Millar/Steve McNiven and #5 is Uncanny X-Men by Bru/Frac.

Ultimatum was wild, and the coolest thing about it is the fact that I honestly don’t know where this thing is going.

If you’re not reading Hulk, and judging by the numbers that’s only like three people, pick up the damn book.  The Red Hulk (“Rulk”) is a ton of fun.  Rulk punches people, there’s lots of comedy and its got the art styling of both Frank Cho and Art Adams.  It’s a hell of a lot of book for $2.99 and rightly deserves its #3 spot.  Stop reading this and go pick up the back issue.

*That large gap between dollar share and unit share is not surprising considering Marvel’s tactic since the mid-80’s has been to throw tons of product on the wall.
