June 19, 2013 8:38 pm How do they, in good conscience, promo this as the biggest secret in comics? I understand that they have to sell books, and I get it that they are not at fault for the big reveals that came out months ago, but really? Art so confidential that no one else knows what is going to be there...except anyone with an internet connection. This was not that ground-breaking of an event to me, and it generally just made messy continuity and storylines messier- I am going to crawl back into the numerous image and dark horse books that are so much more interesting. Best of luck to the Marvel U in keeping things interesting...until the next status quo changing event that starts next week.

June 14, 2013 4:47 pm So were you sad when you saw solicits for the next issue...McNiven is done already. At least for a few issues.
April 28, 2013 12:31 pm That is monstrous! Who is trying to change that much? The original series only ran for 46 issues- that is almost $10 a piece! You can go to sites like mycomicshop.com and get most of the series for less than two bucks each/ many at $1.50
April 27, 2013 11:10 pm I feel so out of the loop. Are there really that many fans of the 2099 line? Fan favorite? I must have missed something major here. But hey, maybe I am just out if touch. No. It's the children who are wrong.
April 1, 2013 3:20 pm Agreed on the sad aspect of timing. Still, it is definitely one of those series that I would rather wait until they can do it right. Not realistic for many of the big two comics given expectations of monthly shipping, but fantastic for the more self-contained independent comics. I would far prefer getting an installment every three months that rocks than filler issues of questionable interest to me. Plus, it adds a bit to going bakc and reading it all together to see the pieces that were so spread out. I also read JLA/Avengers (fun), Superman (kinda odd, but it was better than the Jim Lee stuff that followed), and BPRD. I think that I had dropped Green lantern a bit before this, and picked it back up starting the next issue with Kyle's return to earth and finale of volume 2 for the series.
March 7, 2013 12:43 am The New Universe was ackowledged to some degree in the 616 universe in the 90s. Many of the characters and the star brand in particular were featured in Quasar...which seven people (including myself) read. I am interested to see if that is acknowledged at all in this storyline.
March 1, 2013 7:55 pm I see your point...still, what if I want to go back and re-read those old issues of Brigade...or my collect it's item Boof #1?
February 11, 2013 8:33 pm This is a good thing. And I do not mean that as an insult to Johns. He has truly done great things for this franchise. But I do think things have gotten less exciting since the blackest night stuff. I think that all great creators have to know when to call it a day with certain characters. GL has progressively fallen farther and farther from must read for me.
