Marvel Season One

Postby Ult_Sm86 » Mon May 05, 2014 1:31 am

So I own & have read two of Marvel's Season One books, a modernized origin series. The idea is similar to the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale series they did ([i[Daredevil: Yellow, Spider-Man: Blue, Hulk: Grey[/i]) but w/out the romantic elements. (Though romance appears in the two I've read, for sure).

It's sort of like... missing stories or missing plot points from the original comics.

Season One: Doctor Strange is by Greg Pak & Emma Rios. Rios' art is phenomenal, she's clearly a quality artist and a valuable asset to the Marvel line. I hope they keep her around longer. Pak, as always, serves us lots of character and a lot of story, a nice balance of both.

Dennis Hopeless (known for the Avengers Arena story) and Jamie McKelvie take on X-Men: Season One

which features some pretty basic art by McKelvie but great story from Hopeless. Short of All-New X-Men, this is the most developed I've ever seen the original cast, certainly the most relatable they've ever been.

I'm looking to get Tom DeFalco's Antman: Season One next with art by Horacio Domingues.
DeFalco is one of the greats, a famous name associated with the Web-Head and mostly any other big Marvel book, sans X-men. (He's not as well received in those circles).

... no Black Widow or any of the ladies yet... no Power Man or Blade... gettin' to be a very white sausage fest. But the creators are a very diverse and talented line-up so there's that at least. What ones would you guys be interested in? And who do you think deserves a Season One? (Besides Nightcralwer!)

I think there needs to be Black Widow, Power Man, Blade, Venom, Iron Fist, Nova (Sam Alexander), & Storm.
