I usually don't bitch about delays. I'd rather see the best product possible come out then see subpar, rushed art and/or writing. It just doesn't bother me, other than the overwrought fan anticipation that comes with it. But for some reason, this really rubs me the wrong way and lowers my interest in the comic. Is it because it's hit with these problems before the series has started? Is it that it's the flagship book for Marvel's relaunch? Is it that DC's New 52, for all of the other problems they have, have pretty much done accomplished the impossible with their own timeliness through the first year, and Marvel fucked it up in month one? I'm not going to start a lynch mob or anything, and this is a fairly unusual thing for me to be bothered by... But it is off-putting.
It might also be that I still consider Rick Remender a bit overrated, and I'm not sure he's gotten me all of that interested in this book to begin with. I'm much more interested in Jason Aaron's X-Men and Hickman's Avengers than this bit of weirdness.
We finally get the elections out of the way and an end to the constant sniping and once more we're back with it in the comic world. It seems that we''l never get past the fact that DC Fans can't resist sniping at Marvel and vice versa.
Oh well, can't expect miracles I suppose. Anyone fancy a New Years Resolution to avoid posting about things they neither read or have any interest in?
Such a true comment....I'm in on that resolution...although I typically already try to stay away from any obvious dc-related bashing now, but for the resolution to work, ill have to get it all out of my system...can't we just like what we like? When I read comments of a story like this, why am I seeing nothing but dc fanboy tirades? Are you more interested in bashing other people's interests than paying attention to your own? I have every reason to post here, but why are you if you hate everything about something youve never taken the time to understand? Uncanny's first issue was great, the writer is easily one of the hottest in all of comics today, the artist is kind of a legend in the community....a couple weeks of delay on something incredible is far better in my eyes than month after month of the same old garbage 90s image comics redux......snyders batman is the only reason I ever need to peek over that fence personally, I know that because I've read a lot of the rest & remain unimpressed. I find it hilarious that all you people have seemed to say is how much money the new 52 has made. Beyond the fact that this is the first time in many many years that dc has been beating marvel in the numbers dept., don't you guys have anything interesting to say about the stories you ARE actually reading? When did numbers become the deciding factor of quality in an art form? By your logic Michael Bay is one of the best directors in modern cinema, Taco Bell is the king of American Cuisine, and Twilight is the most important modern literature piece of our times.
