So the new issue of Wizard has their picks for the best of 06. Instead of even mentioning other contenders---they went for the just the meat and potatoes. Only winners.

Man of the Year
Joe Q

No.

Event of the Year
Civil War

No.

Artist of the Year
Steve McNiven--Civil War

Maybe.

Single Issue of the Year
New Avengers #22--Luke Cage

No. That had a huge plot hole.

Beakout Talent of the Year
Charlie Huston--Moon Knight

Maybe.

Boldest Move of the Year

52

I figured Ultimate Demogoblin was pretty bold.

Writer of the Year
BKV ----and deservedly so!!!
*Gert got Best Death

Yes.

Book of the Year
Daredevil

Yes.

Hero of the Year
Superman

Maybe.

Cover Artist of the Year
JG Jones

Maybe.


And here's a couple more categories worth mentioning---

Best Animated Series---JLU
Hell Yes.

Best Video Game---Marvel Ultimate Alliance
Maybe.

Best DVD---Superman: Ultimate Collector's Edition Box Set
No.

Best Collection---Absolute Kingdome Come
Absolute Sandman.


This list sucks.

Joe Q should be disqualified from recieving the Man of the Year award on the sole basis of the quantity (and horrible placement!) of ads in the current batch of Marvel titles alone.

The volume of ads is off-putting and distracting; it's actually prompted me to cut down on single issues and trade-wait several Marvel titles. Joe Q ultimately has the power to put a stop to this insanity, yet he has made the conscious decision to go with it. That's a real shame.

And on top of that he/they have raised cover prices across the board.

What plothole did this issue have?

From what I understand in every other civil war issue.

It's against the law for a unregistered superhuman to be a superhero.

Only if you are in the act of being one.

As soon as the law passed. Luke Cage was in his home not doing anything. I thought they had the option to retire?

Plus it was at midnight. Midnight! They waited at his house not even giving him a chance to sign or what.

That last reason is kind of shady cause might have been able to do it in advance.

Well, waiting at his house isn't a plot hole. They knew he wouldn't sign at all, hence them waiting. And they also knew Luke wouldn't stop doing the superheo biz, so there it is right there.

I can see that, but don't you have to commit the crime first?

....

Marvel's not the only one who's raised prices. :?

So? I'm not saying x is better than Marvel because Marvel raised prices. The comment was that there are too many ads, and I said on top of that they increased the price too. One would assume that by increasing the number of ads it would prevent having to raise the cover price, especially if Marvel specifically and comics as a whole was/are doing as well financially as we are led to believe.

That's the problem the whole thing is inconsient.

I agree 100% with this.. The enforcement of the registration act has been incredibly inconsistent. Marvel cant decide whether not signing is the crime, or refusing to hunt down heroes is the crime, or whether vigilantiism is the crime.

I mean, Cap was gonna sign, but he was attacked by SHIELD for refusing to hunt down heroes. The X Men refused to hunt down heroes and Tony shook their hands. Yet when Spiderman wants to stop hunting heroes, they use the Thunderbolts on them.

I like the story, but the registration act isnt being applied universally.

EDIT: I agree about the ads, but whats this about the cover price raising? To be honest I havent looked at a cover price in a couple weeks. The X Axis (www.thexaxis.com) has been consistently trashing Marvel about the ads in their reviews, I think its spot on.

All books that weren't already $2.99/issue were raised to $2.99.

And I'm not saying you did, either.

But again, Marvel's not the only one who raised prices so why would you single out Marvel for that?

Really is pretentious, no matter what she says. Do
Anyone who didn't like the luke cage issue is a racist. There, I said it.



i thought everyone liking that issue was just a UC thing. Glad we're not the only ones. Cmon, hero of the Year? Superman? Can't someone else have gotten that, Like Joe Q? An maybe ads just went up because of the holiday season.

The Spider-Woman issue was much better.

As much as I love Drew, I'm gonna have to disagree. They were both good, but Luke cage issue was cool, believable to an extent and just raw. I don't use that word alot. I was good. it was great.
