GREAT week for new books!
afogofideas asked: This isn't really a 'dope' question but do you like Bendis? I just started picking up Marvel comics partly because of your blog and I began with Bendis stuff because certain people I know kept saying I should but I get a feeling he's maybe not a favourite of yours... I'm reading the Uncanny X-Men and All-New X-Men (amongst other stuff)... have I made a major eff up?
I like Bendis! But I’m more of a DC fan to be honest. I think Bendis is an undeniable master of comic book writing, he gets superheroes to a T, so you didn’t make a mistake. My favorite comic book writer is Grant Morrison. If you like philosophy or existentialism mixed in with a compelling story, I would recommend anything he’s written. I strongly recommend his Animal Man and Doom Patrol run, but since you’re reading Marvel his New X-Men run is a good place to start. :) Happy reading!
