SILENCE! #190

SICK ANIMALS ARE PEOPLE TOO, SO COME ON LET’S MAKE THEIR DREAMS COME TRUE

He had tried so hard. He had tried harder than any man had ever tried. All he wanted was to be the best at the thing he had trained for so long to best at. The thing he was born to be really good at. It was the only thing he cared about, his reason for living. It was the only thing anyone cared about. The world expected him to be the best there ever was or ever would be at the thing. The weight of the world pushed down on his shoulders as it now looked like he might not be the best at doing a thing. He couldn’t let this happen so he clenched his teeth, making his jaw muscles bulge in and out then he punched a locker and went on to become the best there is at doing the thing. Every day was like this for Tom Cruise.

Right, so this is SILENCE! #190 in which The Beast Must Die had to run off at the last minute for a very important and highly paid assassination leaving Gary Lactus to ask twitter for co hosts. He found:

Johnathan Dick, a nice chap from Virginia who talked Nick Spencer’s Steve Rogers Captain America #1 with Gary.

Al Kennedy from House To Astonish who talked DC Rebirth and Baker Street Peculiars.

The pair of them saved the day really so HOORAY FOR THEM!

    The Captain America furore stems from the MCU success coming back to bite the comics in their arses – Captain America: The First Avenger replaced the nazis with HYDRA, due to the fact that Disney didn’t want to sell kids toys with swastikas on them (and legally couldn’t in Germany) so HYDRA become Nazi surrogates, and where we had Baron Strucker as the leader and both he & the group could be hand-waved away as generically bad guys, (despite Strucker’s part in Marvel’s WW2 history he didn’t walk around with a massive swastika on his chest and wasn’t the man Hitler thought was a bit too much). From their conception in the mid 60s the conformity of communism is an obvious key to their formation rather than nazism.

    As a lifelong Marvel reader I know that it’s a plot twist so cannot speak for peoples reactions but can’t help thinking there are more important things to be concerned about.

    I took Geoff Johns up on his offer to personally refund people who return DC Universe Rebirth to him so posted it back to DC with a brief letter.

    Please let us know what response you get from Geoff.

    Have to admit, the more I read about them, the more I want to read Rebirth but not quite enough to actually spend any money on it. I might have to leaf through it in a comic shop without buying it. Though obviously not Dave’s Comics or Gosh! That would be wrong…

    I really do wonder how many readers genuinely care about continuity these days though. It probably was an exciting thing to follow for some people in the 80s when you had stuff like Crisis on Infinite Earths but there have been so many reboots (mostly involving very forgettable comics) that each subsequent attempt to try to rationalise this not very important (in the general scheme of things) stuff is becoming increasingly ridiculous.

    Oh yes.

    I guess it’s not so much about continuity as it is about selling comics, tho’.
