Oh My God, what a dumb shit! I had heard rumors about Alex Ross before and especially how he acted towards Colleen Doran and how many comic book pros won't have anything to do with him. But then reading his current interview in Wizard (yeah,yeah, shut up, there's not much alternative) I'm struck by how much of a screehing whiny fanboy he sounds like. JMS introduced Gwen Stacy's kids in Amazing Spiderman so Alex throws a bitch fit and disposes of the entire JMS run. He says to the Wizard interviewer, in best Tom Cruise vs Matt Lauer fashion, that JMS didn't know Gwen Stacy, HE DIDN"T KNOW HER, MAN!
Also the fact that his work has become boring as fuck with his latest JLA project making me want to do nothing so much as go to the bathroom and read two pages of it, before using the remainder to read at some future date if I ever get through the Bed,bath and beyond catalogue currently perched on top of the toilet.
It's like reading an interview with a demented five year old. Or a really old republican.
Just two days until Essential X-Men vol:6 which has all that good mutant massacre stuff and some good individual issues, especially the first few Magneto with the x-men issues and the battle with the Hellfire Club.
Geoff Johns final issue of 'The Flash' (#225) comes out this week, I think. I'm totally looking forward to this one with both reverse Flashes and the cliffhanger of Barry Allen appearing as Wally is dragged into the future.
'Jack Cross' is the usual good stuff from Warren Ellis- go read it if you haven't already- looks set to be an intriguing series dealing with today's topical stories in the usual entertaining and innovative Ellis fashion.
