Spoilers for all who care
Spoiler:
The Necron not only kill people, they manage to destroy the entire planet.

Although it's also worth noting that the trail of devastation left in the wake of our pre-teen protagonists has almost no effect on them at all, other than one scene where Talen was a tad sad for a bit.

Any normal human would be psychologically ruined by a fraction of what they've cheerfully passed through.

It's the 41st Millennium and they're too young to process it correctly perhaps. Hard to say how preteens would react to those events in today's age, but in 40k that's just another month of Mayhem.

Marvel is dying... they have to grab at any straws anyone throws at them at this point.



At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.

They took it because they need anything, literally anything that might turn even the most tiny of profits, having spent the last decade destroying the American comic book industry.

You do realise they are separate companies, right? Just because they are both owned by the same parent company (Disney), doesn't magically make the Comic division profitable because the Movie division is raking in the cash.

In the corporate world, that's what's known as "creative accounting". One brand is split up into multiple "corporations" in such a way that one makes a profit and the other operates at a loss. The company that operates at a loss subsidizes the tax burden of the profitable entity. You can't seriously think that Marvel Studios and Marvel Comics are separate to anyone but the IRS?

Given the fact that one company has almost single-handedly destroyed an entire industry, while the other has printed money with the most safe and generic films you can imagine, yes, I think they have different people calling the shots.

Oh, I can't wait to hear this. Though since you tried to link to Arch Warhammer earlier, I can probably predict why you think it was Marvel that "destroyed" the comic book industry.

I really think Salamanders would have been a much better choice. That would let the artists be able to create really neat art with their ornately crafted weapons, use of fire/scales, and that they actually care about the people of their homeworld making it easier to show the human/post-human stuggles and ideas of how the Astartes view regular humans.

That cover just looks so generic right now, besides people already a fan of 40k, don't really imagine somebody seeing that and thinking it is cool.

I'm not the biggest Ultramarine fan, but they are portrayed as working well with their human auxiliary and caring about them. Not the same as Salamanders of course, but they're not as aloof as a lot of chapters.

Agreed on the cover though, it's just okayish.

Maybe split the tangent about the dying comic book industry into Off Topic or Geek Media? I’m pretty sure that there’s entertainment value to be had there, but I don’t want this thread locked until we get some blurry potato-cam pics of truly Liefeldian interior artwork.

Not permanently, but as of the moment, that's the reality of the situation. I'm sure it'll change soon.

It's just the cover. What matters is the art inside.

Personally, I'd prefer black & white, like the old Conan comics or Deff Skwadron.

They made products no-one wanted, did not hire the best writers and/or artists, and told the people who actually bought their product that they were bad people by virtue of immutable characteristics, which meant they stopped buying their product.


Yeah, I'm sure DC's 52 Crises on Infinite Crisis had nothing to do with that.

You think Marvel is bright and cheery? When Hydra wiped a city off the map, and heroes were searching for survivors, it was the teen group who found the airport intact and got hopeful, only to discover the planes had been microwaved full of passengers. There were no survivors.

More likely, that photoshop doth covers many sins. There are much gakkier illustrators over there making a living just by obscuring the pencils with lots of gak.
