  1. Not reading Morrison's Batman?

    I've got Bats, GL, Countdown, Countdown to adventure (I love animal man too much apparently) and thats about it.

    One of these days I'll pick up some more Marvel...

  2. I'm reading it in trade, but Y #60 is mighty tempting, difficult to wait for.

  3. The Batman titles lost me when they started the Resurrection crossover.

    Can't wait to read Cap #34...

  5. I'd say GL might be worth your time, and maybe Action Comics; Johns and Frank make a pretty good team on the book.

    More importantly, shouldn't you be picking up PROOF from Image?!?

    *hangs head in shame*

  9. No "Death of the New Gods"?

  10. So I assume that the use of original Daredevil in that Superpowers Project thing will be similar to the deal with Captain Marvel, i.e. they can call the character that but no logos on covers or excessive use of the name in marketing, etc.?
    Also, I think that changing his mask to the "full facial features/painted on" look from the "Spider-Man/Black Panther full cloth face mask" look was a stupid decision.

  11. RE: "Adolescent Radioactive Black Belt Hamsters #1"

    Thanks for mentioning the new ARBBH in your blog! I hope you'll give Dynamite's version a read that's written by Keith Champagne, drawn by Tom Nguyen with color by Moose Baumann and let me know what you think...if you like it, maybe the old B&W ones from Eclipse Comics might be worth a second look. You can download many of the older issues for free on Wowio.com, too.

    Sincerely,
