Marvel Misses Its Mark

And the first shot has just been fired across the bow.

What does it mean? I don't know but I think it's a wonderful move on DC's part.

Supposedly, 2008 is due to be a MAJOR year for shake-ups within The DC and Marvel Universes.

The addition of longtime Marvel artist Mark Bagley to the DC talent roster sends a signal that 2008 will definitely be a year for change.

Speculation runs rampant as to whether or not DC intends to reboot a good portion of its universe next year and having the first artist to help launch the Ultimate Universe line sends a not-so-subtle message as to where DC may soon be headed with this soon.

Bagley on Batman?

Bagley on Superman?

Doesn't matter. Anywhere he goes, he's more than likely to deliver, on-time and quality-wise.

A good move on DC's part, I think. I honestly can't wait to see where they're headed with this.

That Batman/Spider Man crossover is one of my favorite single issues ever.

I think Bagley on Superman would be great -- and should end the Great Superman Scheduling Snafu once and for all.

I have to agree with Rob S. I think a Bagley sun on S-Man would probably be enough to make me want to start picking up the title again.

I usually buy a book for the writer, not the artist, but I think I'll pick up whatever book Bagley ends up on.

This is great news. I've been a Bag-fan since New Warriors, but I just can't bring myself to give Marvel money these days. Now I can get a fix.

I'd certainly be happy to follow a Busiek/Bagley Trinity weekly book...(which is where some of the rumor sites have him going...)
