If it's crap ... We'll tell you
If you saw my last post pretend like you didn't.
This week The League of Extremely Ordinary Gentlemen gets back to its roots, COMIC BOOKS (anybody remember back when that's what the show was about?) And to help us out we'll have Marvel's newest hot shot artist, DAVID MARQUEZ.
And coming soon on "ULTIMATE SPIDERMAN".
There's no more time to waste. Get your questions in now!

It has been a few months since the new DC 52 has started. Which of the new 52 comics have you dropped and/or given another chance? Thank you for all the hours of entertainment and laughs. Long live the league!
So... How about them comic books?
Yeah, the only comic I even remotely keep up with is Invincible, so I have very little say on that end.
...But what the hell, have you guys been keeping up with Invincible and if so are you enjoying the direction the story has gone? I personally like these new places Kirkman takes the story and all the questions he has Invincible explore as of late. Also; how about them moral ambiguities?
LEOG, old chum!
The new animated feature "Justice League: Doom" is a pretty solid rehashing of the "JLA: Tower of Babel" storyline.
Are there any other (perhaps lesser known) retelling of comic stories that not only do justice to the original but possibly surpass them?
The New 52 has reached a halfway point, with titles now going on their seventh issue and new books on the horizon. Of the DC books you're currently reading, what has been the most consistent? While I greet every new issue of Scott Snyder's Batman like Peter does eating a McRib, and I enjoy the other titles I'm reading (especially Aquaman), the one book that has consistently delivered for me is Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E.. It has everything I could ask for: insane action, humor, crazy science, monsters, and big ideas. Key most of all is, like two of my favorite Marvel books (Daredevil and Wolverine & the X-Men), it has a great sense of fun.
In the spirit of DC's backup stories, here's a question for your guest:
Dear Mr. Marquez,
I'm curious to know what were the differences (be they stylistic or semantic) between the scripts of "Fantastic Four: Season One" and what Bendis wrote for your issue of Ultimate Spider-Man? Did you have to make any unexpected changes in your work ethic or style in order to complete the work?
How much do you think the rogues gallery determines how good of a hero they can be? Can you have a shitty character with an amazing rogues gallery?
When Disney pulled away all the licensing rights from BOOM! many a person expected Marvel would soon be rolling out with books staring Donald, Uncle Scrooge, Darkwing Duck, The Muppets, etc. yet we haven't seen book one from the House of Ideas with these characters. Does the League care to speculate why this is & what the future of these comic titles may be?
Dear Leon and the LEOGINTES... and cyrus... ,
With: Brian K. Vaughn writing SAGA, Jonathan Hickman writing MANHATTAN PROJECTS, and Ed Brubaker writing FATALE. Do you guys think, with Image comics getting more and more A-list writers, do you think that Image will become the go-to place for writers and eventually become bigger or even as big as Marvel or DC?
Thanks and long live bacon!
Talking about comic books?! NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERDS!
Dear LEOG, a bit a follow up to last weeks excellent episode, Kelly you kick ass, what current female superheroes or non superhero ladies do you think are among the best right now and set a good example of young women or are just plain, great characters? Obviously I'd say Batwoman, Wonder Woman, Barbra Gordon, etc.
-Jordan, LONG LIVE THE LEAGUE P.S. See you in June.
I've always enjoyed off-color, dark humor comics like Douglas Paszkiewicz's "Arsenic Lullaby" and the horribly illustrated "Angry Youth Comix." Besides Jhonen Vasquez's overexposed work, however, these books tend to be hard to find. I haven't come across a good one in years.
Is anyone in the LEOG a fan of dark humor books? And if so, can you recommend any newer works for a fellow sick-puppy?
Dear artistic Leog
Are there any artists who are considered great that you can't get into?
Dear Mr. Marquez
Which artists inspired you in your career?
Long Live the LEAGUE
Who are your favorite alternate versions of existing heroes? For example; I'm a huge fan of Spider-Girl who started out in a "what if" comic and eventually got her own book. Of course, my knowledge of comic books is merely a cliffnotes to the Leauge's endless encyclopedic knowledge of the medium so I'm sure you can name some really obscure and crazy ones.
Thank you all for the making my Fridays bearable and of course,
LONG LIVE SPILL
