I know nothing about Thorne personally, so I can't speak to that, but I will say that I thought that this was SO much better than the garbage that Morrison was putting out. I'll give the second issue a shot.

I'm really tired of this COVID mask motif we see in a lot of comics today. Don't get me wrong, wear a mask, it's good for you, I just see enough of that in the real world, could I please escape from this nightmare at least in my comics or do I have to get tortured there too?

I think King should read some real literature where real writers show him how to really flashback, Luis Spota, William Faulkner, Juan Rulfo or John Le Carré.

I don't know who told him that he knew how to write to this man. The only good thing was the art.

A strange beginning only progresses towards the fanboys of geriatric-Cable to finally get a promise of the ressurection they always wanted!
Not the best decision for Marvel to repeal, since I actually like Kid Cable better than the geriatric. I never read Cable before this iteration showed up unless he was kicking it with Deadpool.

“Tramps and hobos are commonly lumped together, but see themselves as sharply differentiated. A hobo or bo is simply a migratory laborer; he may take some longish holidays, but sooner or later he returns to work. A tramp never works if it can be avoided; he simply travels.”

Are you serious with that last part? " Straight people don't know they're straight until they've had sex"? Lol. Like that happened, EVER. :))

Psycamorean - Mar 5, 2021

My point was that straight people don't have to have sex to realize that they are attracted to the opposite gender, and the same is true of gay people and their attraction to same gender. Maelstron thinks that gay people must have sex to figure out that they are gay. Maelstron is wrong. Maybe that clears it up for you.
