I realized you did mean to say this with mirth and tongue in check, but all I can think of is this: when is another good one going to come?
Well I guess that depends on what you consider good
, becuase when you say stuff like this -
But, seeing as how I wasn't a fan of CW [one] ...
I'm not sure I can answer your question as that was, for me, even with the somewhat odd (off) characterization, a great ... GREAT event. It just was. So great they made a great movie around it. The plot of that event was fantastic, the story was all universe inclusive, the crossover titles mattered (for the most part) and ... and this is important ... the ramifications of that first Civil War were felt for years and years afterwards.
Yes, that event was great.
As far as throwing a time-scale on a good event and "when the next one will come?" ... ha, l wish I could answer that, for more reasons than the logical ones you mentioned
, but those are the major reasons, for sure. Hickman is gone, Bendis has not been able to write a team book to satisfy me for years, much less plan out, plot out a decent universal encompassing "Event", but there are some great writers still at Marvel. Jason Aaron, who has ... well, had plotted out Thor so perfectly (until Marvel made him postpone the "Unworthy Thor" arc) is one writer I would love to see do a company wide event. Even with his last foray into that being less than stellar (See Original Sin for details
I also think Jeff Lemire has the chops to do some interesting events if given the chance, his Bloodshot alone is worth giving him the chance, but his Moon Knight (which is AMAZING!!!) and his Old Man Logan are really well done. The only thing I would be worried about would be is he like Bendis? A writer that just blows me away when he writes solo characters, but would suffer when writer teams or huge events? He was a writer on DC's Future's End after all, but his Black Hammer is so well done as a team book, and we have only touched the surface of that, that I feel confident in his ability to do so.
Heck, even Mark Waid, who has really came back with his Champions, though admittedly not making me love Avengers, could do something. I think his knowledge of Marvel History would be a great fit when Marvel finally realizes they need to make some changes and get back to "our heroes" again.
But yes, until management stops dictating how the writers need to direct their stories, start planning properly to elimate yet another late F'n event book, none of that will matter anyway.
And as for his -
,,, and from what I've been continually reading of CW II ...
Why would you do that to yourself? Haha
Such a horrible, horrible event.
I would advise eveyone to just stop hurting themselves and at best, just read the last issue, issue #7 ... oh yeah ... I mean issue #8
and leave the rest alone. I would be willing to fill in any blanks you need, because I was dumb enough to read the entirety of that darn thing.
Perry, if you read this as only as Jimmy T's anti-Marvel rant...well, I hope you don't.
Not at all.
I hope you can see it as me railing against poorly directed stories without a truly organic character beginnings and purpose.
Sure. I do see that. I never had an issue with you railing against bad stories, I just took umbrage with you, in the past, for ... how do the young peeps say it?... "throwing shade one sided"
Slamming Marvel for every little thing while being so damn forgiving to DC for also doing stupid shit at one point in time.
Now yes, it was probably not as bad as I saw it, I do realize that
but it seemed at one time you would make time to come on here and blast Marvel for ... something, and then not do the same to DC. But again, I may have (read as "I am sure I did") taken things a bit too personally
Although yes, the old "But DC did it better" thing was a sore point for me, sure
Only as it reminded me of the stupid "PS4 rules while the X-'BONE' sucks ass" shit you see online all the time or when I was growing up ... "Ford is 100% a better car than any Chevy". Ugh. It just seems we, society, love to fall in love with one side or the other and seem to never find value in what the other side does/says or otherwise. At least that is how I took it with you at one time. Probably a little too much so, I do say.
My bad, man. All good. I'm better now
EDIT - And of course we didn't have to wait long for one part of the question as hey, Marvel has announced its next "big event" (With Captain America) we may find out soon. Clicky HERE
