I don't think you caught my joke. It was rather crude anyway.  :-[  but still funny and accurate.
oh, I guess I didn't. That happens to me sometimes, really annoying when it happens irl.  ;)

Ok ok ok...


If "insert" is them using a character to infuse the story with thenself, it's a literary stand in for their member. Follow me now. If that's the case, then in this bit of wordplay, the "narrative" is figuratively the.........

From Skottie Young's instagram...
It's a variant cover for MMX (not sure which issue) I'll have to check the solicits again.

I normally don't like Skottie Young's covers very much, but that is adorable.

Skottie Young doesn't often draw Gambit but I always love what he does with him. Definitely going to pick this up

Haw. It’s a legendary bat run. The trades & back issues just fly. You’re dead balls wrong. RT @ldsanty: @LarrysComics @RyanHigginsRyan Take a look at your orders for Rogue/Gambit Mini Series @Marvel just completed. Couldn't even sell 3 copies in store. Made it easy for us to pass

Well, based on Google searches... the bad and/or controversial things about people who have an internet presence seem to float to the top, and while there isn't a lot of negativity... what does appear is pretty ugly. Most of it was years ago. Seems like he's been in the business for a while, but his latest things show him being rather cross with the 'bait and switch' stuff, so that likely also attributed to his 'pass' attitude.


The mini sold well enough for them to greenlight MMX, regardless of what one LCS may or may not have sold.

We'll see how the bat/cat wedding sells now that it's been spoiled by the NY Times (I'm not posting a link, because writer Tom King is pretty annoyed by the reveal, so I'm not sure if they were supposed to announce it).


That being said, the Rogue fans amongst us should check out KT's twitter. Judging by the image posted, the art for M&MX will be top-notch, I think.

I went back to the Twitter thread.


Marvel is not doing a great job with the Mr & Mrs X roll-out. They haven't communicated to their retailers what the book actually is, and they're screwing around with the cover variants. Apparently, many people collect J. Scott Campbell covers, and they've made them incentive (i.e. the store buys 25/100 regular covers and gets 1 variant cover) vs open-order (i.e. the store can order the variant covers directly).


I think it's legitimate that comic store owners are annoyed about that, since it's hurting their ability to run their business.

Yeah, I was already concerned about the way they we're handling it initially. When you have a major book coming out and your secretive about that the retailers have no idea (because not everyone has time to be on the net) what it's called or the name is different than what's on the order form, then it becomes an issue. As soon as it was official Marverl should sent out free promotional poster and the such to make sure it's in front of the buyers... Stupid non-descript title doesn't help matters.

Yeah, I finally went into my LCS this last weekend to put that on my pull list and they kind of rolled their eyes and were going on about how pissed they were at Marvel. For example, in their order form it was still listed as X Classified. I really hope Marvel's lack of communication doesn't make the sales tank for this book.

Does Marvel track digital sales or is it just the physical copies sold? I've stopped going to shops, because it's too much of a hassle. I just get the digital copy then buy the trade when it comes out.
