Hey folks, Elliott here. Found this interesting post over at iFanboy about the new ‘event’ from Marvel Comics, ‘The Siege’, the follow-up to “Dark Reign.”
Josh Flanagan of iFanboy offers this: “The Siege starts in January, and it looks like it won’t be Dark Reign, but the thing that comes after it, which is basically a big story with all sorts of characters that sounds a lot like all the events that came before. Basically, this is the next epoch to follow in the footsteps of Civil War, Secret Invasion, and Dark Reign…It sounds like these line wide events are making some money for Marvel. So they’re never going to stop. Ever.”
What I found even more interesting was the debate going on in the comment section for the post. There are more than a few dissenting voices over the whole ‘event’ mentality that Marvel currently has going. And here I thought that only CCW*TV fans were grousing. 😉
So, the question I pose to all of you is this: Have you reached your limit with Marvel? Are you going to be passing on their newest event or are you compelled to keep buying their books because you have to know what’s gonna happen next?
Is the prospect of seeing the original Avengers nucleus back together enough to draw you in?
I’m gonna be honest with you…it just may do it for me. How about you?
