  • Van Lente and Parker Talk X

    Fred Van Lente, the Man of Plenty, and I speak about the Adventures books over at CBR, and yes, we address that offhanded Kirkman line about the books “talking down to kids.” But mostly we just sling Yo Momma jokes at each other. Pretend to be working on your powerpoint presentation for Thursday and go read us yakking instead.

    And don’t forget, there’s a Colleen Coover page in this week’s X-Men: First Class, so snag that.

    If Marvel Adventures talks down to kids, then why do I like them so much? *crickets*

    Yeah, Robert Kirkman’s nuts. Like was mentioned, he clearly hasn’t actually read the books and is simply judging them because he thinks their meant to be just for the kiddies. They’re just fun old school comics. And something necessary in the sea of angst and drama flooding the market. Especially if you’re an X-Men fan… sheesh!

    I wonder what which current events in X-Men are going to be popping up in X-Men: First Class?

    BTW that Fred sure did most of the talking! ;)

    That happened during the last Q&A with them as well.

    Honestly, I picture Fred like Jeff’s big brother. Shoving him away from the microphone everytime he tries to get a word in edgeswise. :D
