Name: Alan Robertson

Bio: I am a Marvel Zombie, who dabbles in WildStorm (RIP) and Hellboy. But thanks to the guys at iFanboy as well as the rest of the iFanbase, my tastes have begun to grow...and my bank account shrink. But thats okay because I now consider myself to be a fan of GOOD comics not just Marvel comics.  That said, I blindly buy all X-Men titles that come out and absolutely gorge myself on the continuity. It's like crack...without the open sores and white lips.I work in retail distribution for a number of gift/smoke shops in the Central Texas (and expanding!) area.  I buy my weekly books at Dragon's Lair in Austin, Tx.

    April 9, 2012 9:46 pm My question's are more about the Nova Force, which got trapped along with Nova and Peter. I'm just glad to know that the whole "dubstep" line from Infinite $1 wasn't coming from my boy Rich. :)
    April 8, 2012 8:59 pm So...according to Comic Vine, this Nova is named Sam Alexander. They also give some more back story on his trip, in advance of the Phoenix Force, to Earth. I have no idea where they got the info or even if its accurate, but if so, it only raises more questions about what happened after Richard Rider and Star-Lord got trapped in the collapsing Cancerverse. I MUST KNOW!!! http://www.comicvine.com/nova/29-2105/
    April 2, 2012 3:06 pm Anyone know if the new backup has anything to do with Court of Owls?
    March 23, 2012 1:28 pm Din't know I wanted a Fiona Staples penciled X-Men book until right now. Ahhh...someday.... And god damn it I love Phil Noto's sketches.
    March 18, 2012 12:43 am Loved Kelly Sue's Osborne Mini from last year (I think?), so I'm willing to give this a shot. Speaking of Osborne, anyone know what Emma Rios is working on next?
    March 17, 2012 7:30 pm I LOVED Exiles. That said, aren't we already seeing a version of this with the AoA book that spun out of Uncanny X-Force? Besides a team made up of X-versions from multiple universes and it WON'T be led by Blink?! We'll see... And the title is dumb. :)
    March 15, 2012 3:10 pm I agree about the references to earth things. I kinda cringed when Marko referred to a Grease Monkey. But maybe there is an explanation coming? It was really my only hangup with the book though and I look forward to these little bits of context being explained.
    March 9, 2012 1:14 pm I REALLY wish it were possible for Phil Noto to collect all of these "classic" superhero sketch's into some type of book, maybe with a little (and I do mean little) more exposition. Love them so much.
    March 2, 2012 2:51 pm @ Eric You can get those 10 issues of Thunder Agents for .99 cents each right now! But I think the sale only last for the rest of today!
    March 1, 2012 12:43 am He did at least one more after Indy. Of which I am a proud owner. http://blog.mondotees.com/2011/09/22/mondo-x-drew-struzan-for-frankenstein-video-recap/
