    After years at Marvel, Bags is finally leaving to work exclusively for DC on an "undisclosed, high profile project sometime in 2008." Whatever project it is, you can count on it to ship on time. ;)

    Can we also get Maleev, Mcniven, Hitch, Del Otto, and Finch?


    Marvel can have the Kuberts back.

    Yeah, The Kuberts have gotten pretty terrible since moving to DC. I used to really dig both of them back in the day.

    This is kind of out of nowhere. But I like Bag's art, all the best to him.

    At the very least, whatever it is he's gonna be doing it'll be on time.

    Sad that we even have to think about things like that.

    He is a terrible artist. When he first started Amazing Spider-man he wasn't that bad but USM is just terrible. People ageing and de-ageing between panels/pages, everyone has a lazy eye etc. And don't even get me started on what he charges for what he does for sketchs at cons. It was another Micheal Golden incident.

    As far as the Kuberts, I think they are still doing good work it's just sad that they do NO work.

    Hitch, is a namazing artist and you can see his passion for not only the project but the medium in every panel and it's rare in comics, it really is. If he put out one book a year, I'm sorry but it's totally worth it.

    Thanks for being one of the reasons that no one cares about deadlines anymore. Please stop collecting.

    I never said I didn't care about deadlines I just feel that some creators have more then earned the right to be late. Would I rather they have the issues finished and 100% in the can before promising shipping dates? Yes I would, but if they want to keep soliciting stuff from a guy like Hitch and it's late...well I'm ok because I KNOW I wil lbe geting my moneys worth when it does come by getting the best work the artist can do and not some lame half assed job or a crappy fill in.

    BWAHAHAHA! Thanks for the laugh. I needed it.

    I don't know, though...it'd have to be art attached to a great story to make Bagley's project the only DC comic I buy. I'm not the kind who buys comics just for being drawn well.

    Ugh, I would hate to see his Batman. DC can have him. Stick him on Teen Titans or something.

    Whatever Not Jake. As a real Jake, I am pumped. I know i have expressed this already but a few beers later a am really pumped about this even more. This guy's art is not only sharp and clear but... say it with me... CON-SIS-TENT.

    I wish he would slow down a little. His stuff can look nice but I think it looks rushed a lot. Sloppy.

    He'd be good on a more youth orientated title like Teen Titans, Robin and Blue Beetle. I think Beetle would be a nice place for him to start. Or GLC: Recharge.
