August 22, 2012 12:36 pm Elegant? This cover is awful! Completely wooden and staid. Jim Lee could have benefited from just a tiny bit of research into what passionately kissing couples actually look like
August 22, 2012 12:33 pm Jim Lee...dude, come on.
March 14, 2012 9:05 am That "vehicle" in the background of the Hawkeye/Hulk poster is definitely the quinjet. Looks just like the Lego quinjet aerial battle set.
March 13, 2012 12:30 pm Definitely Stray Bullets if you can track it down, or for a more focused sampling of Lapham's best solo work read Murder Me Dead. To me, the Annihilation saga from Marvel has been the absolute epitome of cosmic storytelling in recent memory. Powers, but only if you stop before you get to the current volume. Astro City, Local, definitely X-Statix... Oh, and Bomb Queen! Amiright people?
February 28, 2012 12:31 pm Good episode, but Shane needs to get it, and soon. And I hate to say it, but Andrea does too. Definitely not the Andrea from the comics. She could redeem herself in my eyes by not being as pissed off at Dale and by forsaking Shane, but I don't see that happening unless it's just for the sake making the character more like the one in the comic, and I wouldn't want them to do it for that reason. So yeah, kill her.

February 3, 2012 4:29 pm This is the first time I've been among those who are the subject of this feature, and I gotta say that I agree with almost everything that you say Josh. However, I really wish people would stop comparing Watchmen to other ongoing superhero comics like Spider-Man or Superman. The formats are so radically different that it's really impossible to draw any similarities at all.
February 2, 2012 2:13 pm The key is finding the entry point. For my fiance it was Neil Gaiman. She had read Coraline and The Graveyard Book, so getting her into Sandman was easy. I did make a mistake in giving her the Bone One Volume Edition. That was 3 years ago, she still hasn't cracked it and I KNOW she'll love the shit out of it.
February 1, 2012 11:09 am I've been wondering how they got these creators to work on this all morning. Here's the way I see it. Cooke is doing it because he like's a challenge. Azarello because they let him do the interviews. JMS because they have to throw him something once in a while.
