A Comic Show - On Bendis And Fraction Being Sell Outs

A Comic Show – On Bendis And Fraction Being Sell Outs

Posted by July 12, 2011 Comment

Aaron, Beaten-Up Mike and new star Atom, given the chance to plug all his stuff, run through this week’s comics, flexing in their very hands. There’s palpable joy for issue ones of X-Men SchismCaptain America and Ultimate Fallout, the end of the War Of The Green Lanterns and the planet-blowing-up habits of John Stewart. Lots of Flashpoint tie ins, and still more love for last week’s Knight Of Vengeance. And then there’s Jonathan Hickman and Red Wing which inspires the boys to worship, as Aaron finds something to say for the Bleeding Cool headline. Thank you Aaron, most kind. And a little industry analysis from Atom, including this very website’s involvement in it…
