Pete love!
Paul Cornell, of the 'Wisdom' mini-series is going to be taking over New Excalibur (sayonara Claremont!) and Warren Ellis is going to be taking Astonishing X-Men. I AM IN FUCKING COMIC HEAVEN.

Newsarama: ...is there anything specific that fans can be looking forward to reading when they read Warren Ellis' Astonishing X-Men?

Warren Ellis: Oh, the usual, you know. Raping your childhoods, using my position to destroy everything you love, displaying opinions you may not agree with and writing with my own voice and personality. All the things people hate in commercial comics these days. And yet, all the things I am specifically hired for.It's a funny old world.

I think, once this comes out, I will be able to die happy. <3 Does anyone know where Joss Whedon's run of Astonishing is at right now? I want to know who's died, who's alive, that sort of thing. I can't wait to find out who will be the team when Ellis picks them. And I'm expecting, if Kitty's part of his team, she might even MENTION Pete Wisdom actually EXISTS. SHOCK!! PSAG!! NO WAI!!

He and J.K. LOLing should get together and have horribly muscled wizard babies.

Yes! The first and second TPB are titled The Longest Night and Life and Death Matters. They have a delicious sale for them~

You didn't tell me this was by Peter David!! Okay, I might have to buy those after I get paid this coming weekend...

It must have slipped my mind! And yes, he does a brilliant job on them! I hope you like 'em! &hearts

He does a brilliant job on everything he does! Remind me to pick these up, if I forget!

Ha ha, dude, I just regaled Bridgie with a couple of Liefeld's pics. I showed her that famous absolutely hideous picture of Captain America first (how in hell did that actually get published?!) but then I found this. http://howtokillpeople.com/2007/03/29/the-50-worst-comic-book-characters/

Look at entry number 28, 'Vogue'. The man has NO concept of basic human anatomy, it's gone beyond sad into just plain scary. XP

Oh Gai, I hate Rob LOLfeld. He copies tons of stuff, too, and badly.

HERE is a good example. HERE and HERE are two things that crack me up everytime.

Those are gold! LOLfield sucks so hard. How in the hell does he keep getting work?! I wonder how popular he is...do you know if he gets on Wizard's list of most popular artists?

I dunno, but I do know that he has a hoard of fans. Apparently enough to keep his ass from getting canned.

When will people learn. Stop buying crap and less crap will get made. XP

I couldn't agree more. I actually find myself, loudly, going "LIEFEEEEEEEEELD!" in comic book stores anytime I see a cover done by him. I'm lucky the people I hang out with do the same thing but to random people in the store, I'm sure I look crazy balling my fists and shouting random names to the heavens.

I would dearly love to see that. Of course, I'd have to pretend I didn't know you immediately after, but I'd be rejoicing inside, seriously. ;)
