I don’t write many reviews for my comics. I barely have time to read the things, much less gab on…

March 14, 2017 4:21 pm Whoa, WHOA....I haven't been 'round these parts in a long time. I was avoiding spoilers while I wasn't buying books because I though I'd just catch up on back issues because I am apparently very dumb. How long has the original crew been back together!? Glad I came to the site today! Man-Thing was rad! I guess the market for that is grouchy old men disillusioned with comics, who want kooky pulp style stories. The backup story was indeed fantastic. The whole issue reminded me somewhat of an old issue of Weird War Tales that is still banging around my collection that my mom brought home from a thrift store when I was young. It hit the notes that I wanted that series with Dum Dum Dugan and the monsters acting as SHIELD agents didn't. Man I wish that book had have been good...
April 24, 2015 12:13 am Man, I loved Foggy from the word go. The Matt and Foggy in college stuff was excellent.Karen took a bit to grow on me, but when she did, I REALLY liked her. I was into almost everything, although I think a few parts dragged out a bit too long, like the hostage situation bit in World On Fire. Stick was awesome. I loved how people not familiar with the comics can go back and read just a few select arcs, and see where the show took cues. Primarily, those were Born Again, Man Without Fear, and Fall of the Kingpin. Speaking of, the end scene of Stick was lifted straight out of issue #2 of Man Without Fear. It had been some time since I read that, but I caught it last night since I'm giving it a re-read. That issue has some Matt and Foggy college stuff, along with that "greek girl". Pretty fun nods in the show. I actually felt that Charlie Cox was one of the weaker actors overall. That said though, it just shows how much of a fantastic job everyone else did. His stilted way of speaking bugged me at times. Vanessa...man. MAN. I'm not really familiar with any portrayal of her in the comics, so in my first experience seeing her, what an amazing job as basically, a woman who can break the kingpin. I really enjoyed the scene in the penthouse where they showed how she broke Fisk's routine. I think that was very well done. Also, she was hot. Killing Ben Urich blew my mind. I know they only intended on one season of Daredevil, but if they're aiming to build a street level MCU, why kill Ben Urich? I didn't quite understand that. They could have gone any number of ways with that. Perhaps even Fisk pulling strings at the hospital where Ben's wife was to make sure she got further care, and have that as a way to control Ben. Ay any rate, great freaking show. I can't wait to see these upcoming series, especially Iron Fist.
April 7, 2015 12:26 pm As for A.J.'s question: In most of these cases, this "diversity" stuff is SO hamfisted, or shoehorned in. It comes across as pandering, and honestly, insulting. In example, my wife and I were talking about the Flash and Arrow TV series the other day. Whatsername and Sarah's relationship is written well and is comes across as natural, meanwhile, in Flash, police chief Singh being gay comes across like being slapped in the face with a frozen tuna. It just seems so fake. I was glad that Marvel created Miles Morales, if only to get out from under the weight of Peter Parker, but so many other things just seem so forced, just for the sake of having it out there for reasons of political correctness. As for Sam Wilson Cap, I like the idea. I thought to myself "Eh, who else would take up the mantle?". That said, I am super broke in recent months, so I haven't read it yet.
September 1, 2013 11:38 pm Well now where the hell am I supposed to go? Guys, seriously, thanks for everything. I'm not sure how long I've been coming to the site, but I do know it has been a long time. Since the days of the changing "gleaming the cube" banner. You guys have greatly enhanced my comics experience over the years. I really don't even know where to start, or even how to tell you guys how much I appreciate your hard work over the years. So, a little story. The night of Ron's final show, I rushed to get my tasks done at my evening job at my LCS, and get home. I expected to find my wife asleep, and I was going to give her a little kiss, pull the covers up arouto tond her, and come watch the show. I snuck into the house all quiet like so I wouldn't wake her up, and came into the bedroom. I was surprised that she was still awake, and started to ask her if she was having trouble sleeping. Nope. No trouble sleeping. She was lying in bed watching porn and fapping. "Well. OK then." I gave her a little kiss on the forehead, and still went into the office to watch Ron's final show. I'm going to miss all the content, the reviews, the unique take on things, Josh asking us what is wrong with us, Jeff guiding us through labyrinthine character histories. So, after 10 or so years of iFanboy being my comic book site of choice, my rock, my anchor, I have but one thing to say: Balls.
August 30, 2013 10:20 am Hah, those were my thoughts as well. Nice.
August 29, 2013 9:20 pm Daredevil Peter Panzerfaust All-New X-Men Thor: God of Thunder Good lord, that's a heavy bunch....having a tough time finding a fifth that can compare. Too bad Fury Max is over,
August 21, 2013 11:03 pm These are ridiculous and I must own them. Sad that the art is all over the place in the TOS crossover. Sentinel Borg are even crazier than Bane Borg http://memory-beta.wikia.com/wiki/Enab I really miss Wolverine smoking. That Deathbird and Imperial Guard page is about the 90'sest thing I've seen today.
August 19, 2013 10:14 pm Only thing I was reading then was Runaways. I've got all three of those Fantastic Four hardbacks now though. Good stuff. Apparently, Volume 2 is pretty rare. I lucked out one day. My wife and I were about to head home from Savannah, GA after a weekend trip, and made one last stop at a little retro gaming/toy/whatever other trappings store down there. Boom, volume 2 for $18. Snatched that sucker up.
August 7, 2013 6:04 pm Hell yeah! Valiant! Man, these books have been solid. I really enjoyed Q&W #1, and definitely looking forward to this one.
August 7, 2013 1:51 pm @JVF It's so super corny, but I love it. Big fan of Star Trek, and Beast is my favorite X-Man
