September 3, 2013 12:46 pm Stopped reading comics back in 2004 or 2005, usual financial reasons. Came across an old video show you guys did on youtube about Grant Morrison, so I looked the site up, start listening to the podcast and then of course, started reading comics again. I'd never read much outside the big two but the discussions and reviews and so on from you guys encouraged me to try a lot of Vertigo and Image stuff and whatnot. Greatly appreciated! Your podcast is easily the best one around too All the best, chaps
August 22, 2013 4:15 pm Inclined to agree somewhat here. Batman just works much better for me when it's serious. A lot of Morrison's stuff really put me off, the whole club of heroes/Inc. thing just didn't work for me. The characters all just seemed too silly and I really disliked the art in most of his run. I don't want Batman to be bright, I want Snyder's Black Mirror type stories ya know? That said, I don't think everything I read is that gloomy, DD, Nightwing and Hawkeye spring to mind for me that aren't very dark. Maybe it's just my pull list but I'm not of the opinion that comics should lighten up at all
August 20, 2013 11:50 am @USPUNX- I meant to put across that I have this discussion with friends a lot because while most of them do, I and one other friend don't. I probably wasn't as clear as I could have been. They (my friends who download) buy the stuff that they really love and download the titles that they aren't super interested in. For example, one of them buys every Batman trade but also downloads Nightwing, Batgirl, Tec and so on. His defense is that he doesn't like them enough to pay the expensive price. He says if they were cheaper he'd buy them. I don't believe him though, I think like you said, the addictive quality of downloading is a real issue so it's a bone of contention between me and some people!
August 20, 2013 10:43 am USPUNX- I don't need to keep anything in mind, thanks very much. I don't illegally download anything.
August 20, 2013 10:03 am Is it still a thing? The vast majority of comic reading people I know, download them free. I'm surprised that's a question, I thought it was a well known fact that Piracy accounts for a very large element of the comic reading community. Of course, I could be waaaay off, I'm also not in the US where most of that community is and so maybe there's a difference between there and Europe. My comic reading friends virtually to a man pirate single issue comics but buy absolute editions, hardcovers and different collections. I've had this discussion so many times but I guess I can see the point that single issues are SO expensive these days that it just doesn't seem worth it.
August 7, 2013 10:20 am Looks very cool. The design of Asgard is really interesting
July 22, 2013 9:05 am I'm not surprised Ultron won't have anything to do with Pym, it makes sense in the Iron Man heavy filmverse that Ultron be a result of Stark Tech gaining sentience or something to that effect. Keeps RDJ front and center and sets up some nice drama for him. Looking forward to this, I admit I expected Avengers to be a bit of a mess but I loved it!
July 22, 2013 8:57 am ah, this is a shame for me, McNiven is awesome but I can't get into this book. I'd hoped to see McNiven do X-Men!
July 22, 2013 8:55 am Not sure what the X-Men need is another WATX style book. Granted, thats an assumption based on the apparent silliness of the premise
