Marvel MMO unveils first developer diary

Have a look for yourself – it even contains some gameplay footage. I’m happy to make a prediction: there are going to be a LOT of people wanting to plan the Hulk.

I’m more of a Dazzler character myself – how about you?

Marvel comic tragic? Get a big fix of this…

Having grown up in the 70s and 80s, I ended up a ravenous consumer of comics. Although I liked a bit of Archie, Batman and Richie Rich to name three, I was mostly a rabid Marvel Comics fan. Daredevil, Fantastic Four, Spiderman, Dazzler, Cloak and Dagger, I could go on for hours about them all.

Marvel’s Editor in Chief for most of my childhood and teen years was Jim Shooter. Even as a young person I remember being impressed by his passion for comics and loved reading his Bullpen missives. That passion obviously hasn’t faded as Jim is now a blogger and what a blog it is.

Most days Jim posts fascinating anecdotes about the comics industry, particularly on his Marvel days. Whether it’s stories of rooting out corruption or debates with comic artists / letterers / inkers, it’s all gold.

Have a read for yourself, you won’t be disappointed.
