Announcing the Mania Comic Book Hall of Fame (Article) - 4/12/2014 11:08:37 AM

 Blank...you misunderstand... we are starting out by picking 10 creators for each decade of the 30s/40s through the 1990s.  Not one per year.  That is how we are opening this up.  Thus we will pick ten people whose major contribution was in the 1940s such as Jerry Siegal and Joe Shuster...10 peoole from the 1950s such as a Harvey Kurtzman or William Gaines...10 whose major contribtion was in the 1960s like Stan Lee and Steve Ditko...and so on.  future inductees could be drawn from any decade.  The reason for this is if we perhaps just decided to pick the top 50 guys and put them in it might tend to be weighted too much on a couple of particular decades such as the 40s and 60s.   I will be writing the articles but like the top 100 artists series I did, getting input from friends/fans/pros.   Thereafter, we will introduce a set of nominees to people, including Mania Readers, can vote.

As far as a top 20 list we have already previously done a Top 20 comic writers list and a top 100 Artists list.  Here we are going for an all encompassing group...artists/writers/editors/publishers.  Certainly editors like Jules Schwartz is every bit as important as many artists and writers.  Eventually we want to partner up with a major comic book show and hope to make the induction a convention event.

Ultimately the real goal is to intrododuce these people to a new generation who might be unfamiliar with their work and achievements

 Once againg Great One...not sure what you are seeing.  I don't in the least think Skye is a streetfighter ready to take on M. Bison...They showed her basically doing one move the other night.  ONE move.  She didn't go Donnie Yen on the guy.  I saw it as she used the element ot surprise and got lucky.  Was it a little contrived?  Maybe.  But is it any more contrived than Bruce Lee kicking about 50 guys asses in two minutes?

 Interesting theory...some of posed the idea that the low rating despite the hype of the Cap movie was BECAUSE of the cap movie...i.e. for those that did not yet see Winter Soldier they didn't want this week's episode to spoil it.

  Dark...I stand corrected...Cone of Silence...As Far As Skye I am not in love with her but also don't hate her...As far as her learning martial arts magically I say POPPYCOCK. First of all do we know that Skye had no training in martial arts prior to the Pilot? Second, we have seen her training with Ward. JUST because we don't see her training every episode does not mean there is not training going on. I mean Christ on A Crutch this is a show based on comic book characters. Didn't Whedon to the same thing with Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Yes she trained but Damn...she becomes the Slayer and all of a sudden she's Bruce Lee? EVer read Captain America #1? Scrawny guy gets the super solider serum and then all of a sudden he's kicking Nazi ass. Ok he's stronger and faster...does that mean he knows how to fight?

I don't need to see training in Wing Chun and frankly...all she has done is pull off a couple of basic moves. Having taken lessons in Isshin ryu karate when I was younger i was quite capable of delivering a handful of basic strikes after just a few lessons. Who said she was a competant street fighter? I have not seen her portrayed in that way at all. And she has the fact that any opponent, particularly a SHIELD agent is going to understimate her. Also there is the fact that Skye has already been revealed as an 0-8-4...so we know she has abilities of some kind...add to that the unknown effects of the alien-derived drug. We don't know what those things mean...they could mean the Skye does have above normal physical abilities, above normal mental abilites..perhaps the ability to quickly learn and adapt. Blowing Skye off a poor writing is just plain silly.

 If Ward is infiltrating HYDRA then he's really doing a job considering he killed 3 agents...

And Good God GreatOne...Skye lived what a downer?  did you REALLY think they would killer her?  smh
