Sunday supervillainy - re: "just sayin'"


See a stoush about sales numbers on Amazing Spider-Man over here. Also (which is more elevating than a clash of proud people being uncharitable to each other) some insight into the Spidey/MJ/ break-up-their-marriage business. J. Michael Straczynski was clearly not happy about the editorial mandate for this.

H/T Scans Daily, which also has a thread on this little train wreck.

Checked it out - and it's very funny. It would probably be even funnier if my French were better, but I got the gist of it, and loved a lot of the in jokes for people who know their X-Men mythos.
