The final panel promised: The story of "Omega the Unknown" will be concluded in a future issue of "the Defenders." but that story remained untold for two years before it was concluded by Steven Grant and Herb Trimpe in Defenders#76 and 77. Loose ends were tired up as Omega remained dead, and James-Michael Starling joined him after a brief rampage. To this day, Omega remains the among rare Marvel Superheroes that died and remains dead.

From Tom Brevoort's Marvel blog, a peek at an upcoming Howard the Duck project. It's an interesting new design for Howard, and one that definitely won't be mistaken for Donald. Not bad, as he looks grouchy enough to be Howard. He should have a stogie, though. I'm not sure if I want to check this out or not. I suppose it depends on who's involved creatively. Also: new Gerber outrage? We'll see, I guess.

For now, how's about I clean out an unused image file? Don't give me that look. Think of it as a rare glimpse into the "creative" mind. Just think...what kind of half-baked "article" might I have had in mind, saving these FAR-OUT Kirby monster covers? What rare insights were lost? I guess the world will never know...

When I'm reading my comics, I just want a well-told story, and so far, this looks like a good one. I've liked Ed Brubaker's writing since the days he was self-publishing Lowlife. Since then, he's written for both DC and Marvel and he's done some great work at both houses. Brubaker's currently writing Captain America, and he's been doing a great job, combining old-school storytelling conventions with a moodier modern sensibility. Apparently this death of tale was Brubaker's idea, and something he was more-or-less working toward when Civil War came along. While exploring the fallout of Civil War, Brubaker opted for the death story, rather than a "Cap hits the Road to Discover America" tale or a prison stay, a subject he'd just written in Daredevil. As long as this stuff is decided by the creative team and is story-driven, I'm fine with it.
Whatever the case, I'm looking forward to seeing what the future holds for Captain America, and presumably Steve Rogers. Long live Cap!

This is a few years old now, but I’ve always wanted a permanent link to The Life of Reilly, the 35-part magnum opus of Andrew Goletz and Glenn Greenberg detailing the chaos that surrounded the Spider-Man Clone saga. An exhaustive look at all the planning and pitfalls that occur when accounting is running the company. Marvel spent most of the 90’s in a state of panic, and this is a fascinating window into that era of madness.

Now pay attention to how they start out, with a council of war, because they're gonna pull some tricky narrative shit later on, and I wouldn't want ya to miss it:
Three brief origin stories follow, starting with Lizard Johnny fished out of the ocean and taken to a hospital, into the caring arms of compassionate health professionals:
See how they ended it the same way they started it? That's that tricky narrative shit I mentioned earlier.
