Nightcrawler #1 - #4 disscussion

Post by DoomInABox » Thu Dec 09, 2004 8:39 pm

THIS POST IS SPOILER LADEN!!!!

First off: What I actually recall about the Draco is that [spoiler]Azazel merely SAID he was Satan, then said later that he was mutant from biblical times who played the Satan role. Personally, I think he's massively deluded, because the biblical Azazel (the scapegoat) and Satan are two different animals, whose stories occur at two different times.[/spoiler]

What is talked about in #3 is [spoiler]the fourteen angels who fell from heaven with Lucifer. We're talking real, bonafide, posessing, church-anethemic demons here, not mutants claiming to be Satan in recorded theology, like Azazel. Milton's "Paradise Lost" gives a very, very good recount of how this happens, if you can muddle through the translations.[/spoiler]

ANYWAY ...

Darick, beautiful art, as always. I adore your wide-eyed open-mouth expressions particularily ... they make me feel like jumping up and looking to see if anything's behind me. Your stuff illicites such an awesome emotional reaction, I'm constantly on the edge of the bus-seat (that's the only place I have time to read comics anymore).

I especially love your attention to detail. Like how [spoiler] Amanda was wearing Dr. Strange's protection seal (does it even have a name? It's the one that's on the roof of the Sanctum Sanctorum) around her neck.[/spoiler] Was that your idea, Darick?

Well worth the wait, a hundred times over.

** not even gonna mention the [spoiler]shower or Storm with his towel or the fencing with Kitty[/spoiler] ... I'll just start salivating. **

Please, please spoil us! I want to know more about [spoiler] the shower scene, and Kurt in a towel, and what Ororo has to do with it. [/spoiler] Illuminate me, I haven't even been able to get issue #1 yet. Come on, I'm dying here.

Thanks so much! I have to draw that expression a lot in these stories...

Knowing you feel it really makes my day.

Thanks, that was my 'idea', I suppose. I didn't really realize I was drawing [spoiler]Dr.Strange's symbol[/spoiler] , but hey...it works!

By the way, from coming here and realizing how much of Kurt's following is hetero-female, well, I know where to put the focus in towel scenes.

Thank Roberto as well...

Ugh, religion stuff! *bursts into flames*

But at least Kurt is acting like a normal person about it. I can dig that. And not knowing how to introduce Amanda to someone was amusing.

I liked the third issue a lot.

The main appeal of the issue lies in the art.
During quiet moments or fighting scenes, Nightcrawler is really impressive. And expressive.
Darick, your work just gets better and better. Also, congratulations to your artistic team.

Amanda Sefton is becoming, for the FIRST TIME, a really cool character... And so sexy, I'm beginning to daydream... :love

What I liked the most about the plot is the involvment of thirteen demons/fallen angels in this story. I just regret they did vanish that easily in the church's air.
But perhap's we'll see more of them.
In a future story-arc perhap's, Ja ? :)

Hey, THAT could be a great threat for the elf !
Fourteen ghostly ex-angels, all mad about Kurt and Kurt in the middle with an enchanted sword. A battle like that Kurt has never fought ! :mad
Um... Perhap's I should go to the "wish list" thread...

What do you think of the idea ???

Tell me about it ... you people and your darn cliffhangers!!! AAARRRGH!!!!

But the last few pages were presented wonderfully ... like that "I know something you don't know" kind of reveal. I was on my toes, yelling, "What?! What is it?! Tell me!!!"
People on the bus gave me funny looks. (joke) ;)

Nah, it's not hot ... that's just the steam escaping ... lots of steam

[spoiler] I love how Storm just followed him into the locker room and sat there while he showered and changed. It's like she was making sure he wasn't gonna jump out a window and run away or something. [/spoiler]

Hey, for curiosity's sake, is there anyone reading these who does NOT want to be spoiled? Cuz I really don't like those black bar things. I feel like I'm hiding something naughty.

Though considering the context of the one above, I'm not sure I'm not.

Sorry, the black bars are sort of a prerequisite because I don't like being bitched at about how someone spoiled someone else by magically forcing them to read their words.

I've had that argument before, not going to again.

Now if I could only make it so that poor spelling was automatically blacked out... :smirk

Oh okay, no worries then. What I was actually wondering was if it was okay to just out a big bold SPOILER tage at the top of the post, instead of using the black bars. It kind of screws with the flow of the writing.

anyhoo ...

Diablo, to make the spoiler bar appear you use the square brackets [] and type the word "spoiler" in between. Type the text you want blacked out, then end it with [ /spoiler ]
(without the spaces ... i just did that to make it show up.)

if you can't get it, just quote this post and see how it works.

[spoiler]see? no biggie.[/spoiler]

LOL !
If Darick knew this scene would generate so much positive feedback, I think he would have extended it to four or five pages.


*Darick phones to Roberto*
-Hey Roberto, in future issues, we need more shower scenes.
-WHAT ??
- I said, we NEED more shower scenes. And make it last please. The survival of the title depends on it, man ! Thinking about it again, just write a complete issue which takes place INTO Kurt's shower ! You CAN do it Roberto !

I guess you could just block out the whole post. I like the black bars, myself.

Bwahahaha! :*D ... that's just plain funny, Diablo. It brings back memories of the bathroom scene in Excalibur #46. That still makes me laugh into stitches.

[spoiler] Well, she has always been VERY casual about nudity. Remember how Professor X insisted she had to wear "scraps of fabric" (a bikini) when swimming? I think Ororo is one of those people who doesn't see nudity as sexual, just as an unclothed person. And she and Kurt are good friends who have been in very difficult situations, where they have probably unintentionally seen each other naked. It happens.
Besides, I suspect she is the kind of person who doesn't look at nakedness that isn't being shown to her, if you know what I mean.[spoiler]
And for all we know, she hangs out in [spoiler] the guys' locker room[spoiler] a lot. So I'm not sure she was there to prevent an escape. Maybe she was just steaming her pores.

EDIT: Okay, I don't know how these quote and spoiler things work, obviously. I'm sorry this post is so darn clunky.

Yeah, I know all about Storm's casualness when it comes to nudity ... I remember one old X-Men when Kurt suggested a shower after a workout, and she just suddenly tore off her uniform and had one of her private rain-storm showers right in front of everyone. Kurt was the only one who'd turn around long enough to offer her to cape to dry off with.

Still, she's been living with the X-Men so long that almost all of her child-like inhibitions have been washed away. I guess it's actually nice that this little part of her is still sticking around.
