No biggie. It's just a common misperception so I wanted it out there.

What can I say that hasn't already been said except that my anticipation for the debue of the solo book is growing with every new picture posted.

NIGHTCRAWLER #3

Written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, penciled by Darick Robertson, cover by Greg Land.

[spoiler]"The Devil Inside," part 3 of 4. Nightcrawler has enlisted the help of his one-time girlfriend, Amanda Sefton -- a.k.a. Magik -- to get to the bottom of the mystery of the 13 dead children. Can she defend him against the forces of the supernatural that appear to be at work, or are they both out of their league?[/spoiler]

:mad :mad :mad

Though I guess it was inevitable. We can only hope she'll be killed.

Thylacine-
do you mean trade paperback??
this isn't a limited series.

I would guess that it would be quite awhile before it comes out as a T.B.

Does anyone know a reliable website that you can subscribe to the series yet, or know when Marvel's gonna have it on the subscription page? Because I reeeeaally don't wanna have to order single issues or drive 23 miles to the nearest comic book store.:oops: heh, yeah I'm lazy.

By the way, that is possibly the coolest nighty angle in...a long time. Like Dezzy said, it does make ya a bit dizzy *insert dizzy and barf smiley here*

I was told they would collect it at 12 issues, so it won't be at least until next year.

Cover for issue 3 can be found on the net now (I saw it posted on Darick's site). Very cool.

I love the cover of #3.

Hmm, interesting though...

It's very similar to the cover Land did for UXM #449, but that one is of Storm

They both look ecstatic, makes me wonder why. ;)

Thanks! I'll be drawing lots of X-Men as supporting characters in Nightcrawler, so I'm looking forward to that. :D

I can't believe how many people have replied to that Newsrama thread.

I'm still amazed at folks who go out of their way to post things about how they won't be buying the book, and how it's going to be all this and all that, when it isn't even out yet!

I can understand feeling cyincal, but why bash something you haven't read? Who cares about what you're NOT going to buy?

All I know is that everyone working on Nightcrawler seems really excited about it, and that alone is going to give it drive.

Hi Darick, I just wanted to add my bit. I love your art,and while I love Chris (Claremont) writing my version of Nightcrawler, I am buying the series because you are doing the visual honours. I know I won't be disappointed.

And just for the record, I can't understand why anyone would waste thier time posting how much they hate and how badly something is going to suck, something that they haven't even looked at or read...Must be a lot of precogs out there, no? ;)

I'm there dude! :bamf

Maybe they are NC haters and need to be stoned with frogs! :nodyes Seriously though you can never really tell how a book is going to be until you buy the darn thing. Then after that you need to figure out how you feel about it you’re self. Something that I may not like may be wonderful for some one else, like cheese cake, I hate cheese cake.:yech

There ya go. So why would you go post on the Cheescake lovers forum that you hate Cheesecake after an interview with the head chef?

What's the point? Anyway, thanks to all of you here for your support. I always like dropping by to share stuff. This has become a great place to post.

Dude, that's whacked, yo! I oughta go beat those foo' people with a live carp!!
Why are they complaining about something that hasn't even been released yet?! And why should we care about whether they're going to buy it or not? Do they think that they can get more people behind them, and that people will just say "Oh, I've been looking forward to this comic, but now I'm not going to get it, just because this person says so!"
Grrrr... It makes me so peeved...
It's like this one petition I saw that was is favor of banning manga and anime (never gonna happen), and about 4000 people signed it... To say how much they loved manga and anime!!! AAAA!!! STUPID, STUPID PEOPLE!!! They were all "OMG, you can't do this, I love anime so much and it's so cool!", and to get that point across, they were SIGNING the petition, so that their comments would be seen there!
...Okay, I'm not explaining this very well, and maybe it doesn't have a whole lot to do with the situation... Okay, none at all, really, but I felt like ranting about the stupidity of people. Including myself. Now where did my brain pills go...?

I'm sorry some people are being so negative Darick. It seems these days that we're not happy if we don't have anything to complain about.

I myself was not so sure about the premise of the book at first because I was hoping more for some good swashbuckling fun. But that doesn't mean I won't give it a chance. And I sincerely love your art, so the book already has a lot going for it, in my opinion.
