Hey--I used to read comics avidly for over 25 years and now don't. I was wondering if any current readers could fill me in on the scoop of this latest MEGA COMIC EVENT TO END ALL MEGA COMIC EVENTS (IF YOU MISS THIS YOU ARE A TOTAL LOSER) storyline?

I DO want to be spoiled if possible. Thanks.

The very first post in the thread includes a ton o' links about HoM.

Me, I'll probably skip it. It sounds mildly interesting, but I buy enough comics as it is, and with the various Seven Soldiers and Infinite Crisis miniseries added on, well, yeesh. Plus, while I like Bendis in general, "Avengers Disassembled" was a steaming pile of crap and these sorts of huge, world-shaking stories generally aren't his forte (Secret War isn't terribly good so far either).

Too funny not to mention here:

Marvel's gotten in trouble with Spain's royal family over HoM. One of the artists involved, Mike Mayhew, drew a cover picture of Magneto wearing a uniform, which he apparently swiped directly from a photo of King Juan Carlos -- and Juan Carlos is not amused at seeing a mutant terrorist wearing his clothes.

For comparison:

DAMN. He could have changed SOME of the detailing or background or ANYTHING that would have made it look more like an homage and LESS like blatant THEFT.

Some folks who know more about art than me are saying he probably just ran the original picture through Photoshop and stuck Magneto's head on. I guess we're a lot more advanced from the days when lazy artists would just trace someone else's picture...

Somewhere, Rob Lifield breathes a sigh of relief it wasn't him.

They're closing the one by me. Not surprising, since a big shiny B&N opened a block away 2 1/2 years ago, and I don't think I've been back to Borders since.
