Wish it was more than 32 pages, but some Bone is better than no Bone.

Yeah, I'm pretty disappointed given that the original story was a new graphic novel. AND I already have the Bone Companion. :/
FINE

Hope every one had a great Free Comic Book day!

I saw Hebs (Veronica Fish) and her husband. She sketched a Princess Zelda and a Poison Ivy for my daughter (who was very excited to meet someone she had heard on the Hitting Play podcast I guest spot on)

She did an Arch Hall Jr for me which was rad.

I got a couple of her Archie prints, the 1st vol of Archie, couple other trades, big pile of comics, etc. definitely a fun day.

The Unbelievable Gwenpool has my attention. It's like Deadpool, The Tick, and Kick Ass all had a baby.
So does she not have the Deadpool healing factor? I bought the holiday special and was disappointed to see that she wasn't a mass of tumors like Deadpool is.


So, um, I learned through the grapevine about Marvel's big Plot Twist with Captain America. *Sigh* Apparently they have taken over the position of making depressingly bad choices from DC comics now.
Love doesn't hurt. It kills.

It's just going to be someone fucking with his timeline and it will be undone in a couple of issues.

My thought was that it would be that he had to go DEEP under cover to unseat some truly nasty Hydra kingpin who was even more evil and nefarious than the Red Skull.

But I've read of little kids who have heard that news and been in tears because of it.  Understandable for young'uns who don't have the cynical shield (so to speak) that older folk do, to know that it - like his death during the comic Civil War - will be undone at a later date.  Unfortunately it is left with these young kids who looked up to him devastated now.

She's pretty much powerless, except where Deadpool knows he's in a comic, Gwenpool is from our universe (Or she believes she is) and is aware/believes that as a protagonist, nothing can happen to her.

So who had "Actually, yes. Cap's memories of being in Hydra were implanted in him" in the "What's the twist?" pool? Because's that's what happened. The cosmic cube that turned into a girl (comics!) is under the Red Skull's influence and planted the memories in Cap.

That's even lamer than messing with the time-stream as I thought it was.

I wonder how many people that were outraged are feeling dumb now?

It was so nice hanging out again and meeting your lovely family!

You know the editors always knew it was just part of a larger twist (nothing ever stays changed in comics, right? Nobody "dies" for long etc) but had no idea some people would send poor Nick fucking DEATH threats - jeez, come on, what is up with that kind of reaction??

Everyone knew a twist was coming, I think that was half the reason to the reaction.

I was going to say 'and now we know what will be the first post-civil war book cancelled, but some of those look like pretty long shots!
