Civil Idiots

Well done to Mark Millar and Steve McNiven for their constructive commentary on the Civil Wars series in the latest Wizard magazine. It was so nice to hear that you know nothing about comics and don't really care about them whatsoever. It was very 'funny' to hear you talk about the fans 'wanking' over the sexy pictures of Sue Storm. And it was really insightful to read about the thrill you got out of drawing Dagger's arse.
Yeah, nice one guys.

No no no, Civil War is just like Watchmen. Joe Quesada said it, so it must be true!

He even anticipated criticism by pointing out that no one liked Watchmen when it first came out either.


Civil War was a horrible mess, easily the worst thing I've read from Marvel in years. And yet it's dominating their current direction. Arse.

it's not even a complete story.
I didn't mind Civil War, but it was a bit stupid.
Yeah i was reading New Warriors at the weekend, and double-checked the cover. 'Still the Initiative? zzz'

Ah The Initiative. It's not a crossover, it's not a direction, it's not... well, no one seems to know what it is, least of all Marvel. I despair at how that company's being run nowadays.

it kind of seemed like a good idea to me. but they don't seem to have thought the concept thru enough.
