Funnybooks with Aron & Paulie - Cosmic Bling
I love Geoff Johns, I really do. But... seriously? Have you seen the ad where Mongul has all the different color power rings? Remind you of anything? The story is even called "Ring Quest,"
as opposed to "Thanos Quest."
ARON: Yeah... li'l bit... Y'know Starlin's working for DC now... I wonder what he thinks about that?
PAUL: Who knows...maybe he had a hand in it. I know he was
pretty pissed about the direction they (meaning Keith GIffen, also at DC, now!) took with Thanos after he left Marvel.
ARON: Really? I had not heard that he was ticked at Giffen. I knew he and Marvel did not split amicably.
PAUL: Well, he may not be ticked at Giffen directly. I just read that he disagreed with the direction taken with the character after he left. Keith Giffen was pretty much the Thanos guy after Starlin left, so it kind of pieces together. Of course, all this talk has me in the mood to pick up the Infinity books. I only have Gauntlet, and I've read War. I knew about War, but never read it. Of course, I didn't also realize there was an Infinity Abyss, and a Marvel Universe: The End, all written by Starlin.
ARON: I've not read those last two. Did you see that Adam Warlock is back? In the pages of Annihilation Conquest. High Evolutionary, too. I've always liked both of those characters.
PAUL: I didn't see that he was back! Of course, I haven't followed him since Adam Warlock and the Infinity Watch. Is Pip still around?
ARON: Not yet. I haven't seen Pip since the last Infinity book I read. I must admit to some annoyance that Ultron showed up in the book though. Seems like he's everywhere these days. Next, I expect Venom to show up...
PAUL: I'm not a big Ultron fan. He seems like a lame villain to me.
ARON: I liked Ultron back in his early Avengers days when he was all oedipal in his efforts to sex-up Janet VanDyne, the wife of his creator. ...I'm sure that says something about me.
