Or – “When The Craft And The Creative Urge Won’t Intertwine…”  It is the job of creators to go nuts with their ideas, to give us the absolute most bang that they can for our buck, be it Elvis MODOKS, seven different spectrums of power, or a blonde guy in a crewcut coming back from the dead (whether he has a star or a lightning bolt on his chest.)  But, there’s another side to publishing as well, and the job of the editors and publishers is to reign in that creativity a bit and get the books to the stores

Or – “This Just In…  Former Captain America Steve Rogers Is Still Dead, Perhaps.” The first thought that I had upon picking up this book, alleged to be a huge bombshell and to reveal the giant hidden workings of the Marvel Universe and the Red Skull’s mind?  “Man, this Bryan Hitch art looks exactly like his Ultimate Captain America.”  Is this mere coincidence?  Or harbinger of something more going on within the book?
