    September 9, 2011 11:22 pm I'll second everyone here on the "Kirby: King of Comics" biography/art book. It's a great read with beautifully big art work exactly the way Kirby deserves to be seen. Shame so much of the (written) story is Kirby getting ripped off by seemingly every comics publisher as he produced one astonishing issue after another (in every comics genre). An absolute must see/read for all comics fans.
    September 9, 2011 11:13 pm I'm in L.A. and this week my usual Wednesday visit was dampened when I dropped in (earlier than usual) at 1:00pm only to find all but a couple of the New 52 were already sold out. This is a really good shop, too, one of the best I've frequented, but a few hours after opening and with a packed store and people still walking in, the hottest books, a possible last gasp effort by one of the big two to save their entire business, are all but gone ("Swamp Thing", "Animal Man" & "Weird War" gone!) I'm not bitching about missing out on the new books (there's always trades) but how many potential new customers won't ever return because of no stock? I can't say I blame the store. Who does want to eat all that (possibly) left over stock? Seems like DC should have guaranteed returns so stores could over order just in case (or maybe it just caught everyone by surprise. I haven't seen such excitement & activity in a comics store in some time). I know there's pull lists to stop something like books being sold out on you, but I'm more of a type to wander the store to see what catches my fancy that week (outside of the books I read each & every month & aren't popular enough to sell out). Did most stores experience a shortage of stock due to a surprising heavy popularity?
    June 6, 2011 9:55 pm Still here! They're finally getting the tone right on this and...has it been canceled yet? I'll stick around until the bitter end.
    August 10, 2010 11:45 pm I hear ya. I'm sticking around to the bitter end in the hopes it gets better. Still, up to now it has been a disappointment.
    July 6, 2010 10:12 pm The best book being published right now. It just keeps getting better with each issue and this is the one for the ages.
    June 14, 2010 10:11 pm Aaron's run on "The Punisher" is really starting to get great, something with the feel of a masterwork in deranged crime writing. "Kingpin" is very good, but "Bullseye" is off the charts bull-goose looney (not to mention chilling). Love it.
    June 14, 2010 10:07 pm Yes, this has been great. The Ellison/Kyle Baker back up last month was crazy good.

    Judging by the number of pulls & comments this project appears doomed. I had such high hopes with Paul Malmont scripting this, but it has been a slow pull in for me. It has gotten better with each issue, just nothing great...yet. I'm there until the end!

    "Justice, Inc." is moving to a welcome nasty climax. DC should re-issue the two-issue "Justice, Inc." set from the '80's by Kyle Baker (not to mention "The Shadow", mini & on-going series as well).

    June 13, 2010 3:19 pm "The Crooked Man" was creepily superb.
    June 7, 2010 9:43 pm The one Blacksad story I've read was amazing - story & art. Wow. I'll be picking this one up.
