Pull List Analysis for October 29, 2008

Ultimate Spider-Man Annual #3 by Brian Michael Bendis & David Lafuente (Marvel Comics): There comes a time in every young superhero’s life when someone decides to do an issue about their sex life. These “very special” issues have come with a range of tasteful comments from the creators:

I understand that teenage sexuality is a difficult subject for a lot of people. And, as is the custom, I won’t even mention black sexuality. But I don’t think that the people who read Static are afraid to explore storylines ground in the issues of contemporary life.

I called Bob Harras and said, “Excalibur #90, Kitty Pryde gets fucked.” He went deadly silent, then he said, “Just try and keep it tasteful.”

Where will USM Annual #3 fall along the axis? Who knows, though it has the “added bonus” of being part of the MARCH ON ULTIMATUM, though I’m still not entirely sure what that means besides having a really ugly banner along the top.

FBBP #17.5 – Matt Fraction’s Casanova

Filed under: Podcasts — Tags: , , , , , — Joseph Mastantuono @ 4:50 pm

JOE NOTES: Editing this show, it seems that Warren Ellis read Casanova and thought, “Hmm… I’m going to take all the good ideas in this and do them justice in Desolation Jones“. I didn’t realize how much this was true until after the show…

Slight warning. There’s lots me ranting. Lots. So, you might want to skip this if you don’t enjoy my whiny ass whining. My “Too Long, Didn’t Listen” version: None of us liked Casanova. At all. Go Desolation Jones instead.
