Who Is Going To Be On The Hot List???


Actually, we are changing the name of this list to THE BIG TEN --

--because I think some important stories belong on the list but I feel creepy saying they are "hot." It makes me sound like Paris Hilton. If she was sort of a geek.

Anyway, WHO will be on the Hot, I mean THE BIG TEN???

  1. The death of Steve Gerber was a sudden and entirely unexpected news item, yesterday. The man had a unique voice at Marvel in the 70's; his runs on the Defenders and Captain America both subverted and celebrated the super hero genre and his creation of Howard the Duck was a shining moment of pure, joyful genius.
    Writers today should be made to read Gerber's work. Whatever happened to social satire?

  6. Gerber's death should absolutely be the "Big One." Beyond that, I'd say the end of the writer's strike, Stephane Peru, the new Guardians of the Galaxy ongoing (w/Rocket Raccoon!), the new Indiana Jones trailer (debuts today), Obama, Eccelston as Destro--and some other stuff I can't think of right now.

  7. Kevin N!!!

    The Pac 10 over the Big 10? As a diehard Ohio State fan, I can say you and I can never be friends! Boo Kevin!

    Anyway, I think the fascinating discussion on women in power should be linked to. Maybe Fox suing WB. And, obviously, the deaths. Those are my votes!

  8. Kenny,
    Ohio State huh? I'll be sure to talk slower and use smaller words. just kidding... I don't have much to brag about these days considering the Huskies haven't gone to a bowl game in about 6 years. At least the basketball team is... what? they suck too? ...crew we're really good at crew these days.

    YES.

    Also, retro comics. I find myself buying FOUR of them now including the Next Issue Project book (with JSA, The Twelve, Project Superpowers).

  13. I look at that Giant Man cover and I can just imagine when he walks around to have to turn his foot sideways all the time so he steps with the direction of the streets. Like in that picture, where do his toes go? That is an important question, definately deserving a top big hot list.
