Long time no see

August 13, 2002 @ 8:12 PM ADT

Hey folks, sorry to have been away for so long. I've been busy with other things lately and the site just got put on the back burner for a while. I'm working on some new sections right now, and hope to have them up soon. I also expect to be getting back on track with the issue database and bios in the near future.

Two new sections

June 28, 2002 @ 6:00 PM ADT

I've added a Sales Chart and a Price Guide to the site. And I've still got a couple of other ones up my sleeve. However, I was unable to as accurate numbers as I had hoped for for the first seven issues. I've checked ICv2 (which only goes as far back as Feb. 2001), Diamond, Usenet and Comic Book Resources so far. There are still some other sites out there that I'll look at later. If anyone knows where sales numbers can be found for these issues please email me.

More U-DECIDE info

June 27, 2002 @ 11:08 PM ADT

Marvel held a conference call about the U-DECIDE event and, once again, Newsarama has the scoop. Here's what Peter David had to say about Captain Marvel:

“What I'm really trying to do is write a book about how an alien perceives this world, and is trying to both live in it, and make it someplace that will respond to him,” said David. “Thus far in the series, Captain Marvel, who is molecularly bonded to Rick Jones, a long-time denizen of the Marvel Universe, has been trying to get a handle on what the Marvel Universe is about - he's confused, he's puzzled. My God - who can blame him?

”So now, with the relaunch, Captain Marvel has reached a new point in his development. He has now grown up enough so that he thinks he can get a handle on the world. If anything, he's more like a combination of a toddler and a teenager, which is extremely dangerous. At this point in his development, cosmic awareness is the equivalent of taking a new driver and putting him behind the wheel of a Porsche. He figures that he's immortal, he figures that he knows exactly how to do it - gimme the keys and stand back and watch my dust.

”That's exactly where Captain Marvel finds himself, and we frequently know what happens with sixteen year olds who get into that mindset. In the first issue, to all intents and purposes, wraps himself around a cosmic awareness tree. The question is going to be where do you go from there?”

Sounds pretty interesting. For the full story click here.

Bunch of stuff

June 27, 2002 @ 7:08 PM ADT

I've added a brief review of Issue #0 which was packaged with Wizard 2000 all those years ago. Figured I might as well start at the beginning of the series and work my way forward. I also added a wallpapers page. There aren't any Captain Marvel ones there yet but I'm working on'em. Finally, I've updated the Supporting Cast section up to the end of issue #32. I should be getting #33 sometime soon so I'll have al the stuff up relating to that then.

Costume change

June 20, 2002 @ 10:08 PM ADT

According to Newsarama, Genis may apparently be getting a new look, one similar to the design of the Alex Ross alternate cover for issue #1 of the relaunch. Here's what Peter David had to say:

“It will indeed be the new look for Captain Marvel, but not as of issue #1. And it will dovetail with the story, and yes, there will be an explanation as to why a guy who can blast photonic energy out of his hands is now packing heat.”

Don't know what I think about this. I really like the current costume design, but David's comments have piqued my curiosity. Guess we'll find out in September. For the full story click here.

U DECIDE!

June 20, 2002 @ 6:40 PM ADT

The whole Jemas / Quesada / David debacle has once again reared its ugly head, and Newsarama has coverage of it. They have previews of Jemas' The Marville (with art by M.D. Bright), Quesada's hand-picked series by Zimmerman and Fegredo, Ultimate Adventures and of course Captain Marvel #1 vol. 4. Here's the solicitation:

Welcome!

Hello there. I'd like to give you all a big warm welcome to Trading Spaces! For anyone that knows (or cares) I used to run an X-Men site called Planet X but I had to take it down in January due to a lack of time. I had originally planned to have this site launched a couple months ago but I still had no time. Well, my schedule has slacked off recently (although I hope that it'll pick up again soon, but that's another story) and I've decided to make my presence felt once again on the web.

I've tried to include as many sections as I could, and I've still got ideas for some other ones to boot. Some of these sections aren't quite complete but then again nothing will ever really be complete at this site; it will be constantly updated with the goal of bringing you one of the most comprehensive Captain Marvel sites on the web.

I suggest you check out all the sections, and if you're not sure where just work your way down the list to your left. There's quite a bit of stuff that's going to be happening with this site, and this is just the beginning. Now quit reading this and take a look around!
