May 9, 2013 2:04 pm Spider Jerusalem is definitely missing. And I would add Jennie One from Brian Woods Channel Zero.
February 4, 2013 12:50 pm After that avengers#3 article/review by jimski I was tempted to dismiss this article unread. But I have to say: "Chapeau!" That was a well written article that mirrored exactly my thoughts on the state of dc comics.
January 28, 2013 4:00 pm Only read UFF at that time. Later read TWD an the Losers in collected form.
January 28, 2013 3:49 pm Can somebody tell me why my now three replies to this comment just keep vanishing from this site shortly after I post them?
January 28, 2013 12:39 pm First: Sorry, for iFanboy there is too much negativity in this article. If you don´t like that particular issue, just write a bad review about it. Second: I personally have grown to like those books where I don´t know WTF is going on and just enjoy the show, for example "Prophet". Third: As a long time reader this "figuring out as you go" is some rare moment that reminds me of the time I started reading comics, where more than once I was wondering who person X was and why it did action Y. I fully trust one Hickman to have written an issue like that exactly for us long time readers to give us that figuring-it-out feeling. I personally enjoy those moments and thank Hickman for that. Fourth: Giving too much about being new-reader-friendlieness benefits no one. If as a new reader you like something you are willing to invest in the story and figure it out. When I started reading Marvel comics regulary I started with "avengers disassembled" which was definitely not reader friendly but I liked Bendis´writing and here I am eight years later and not one inch wiser cause I still don´t know what happened in that d@*# closet.
January 21, 2013 1:34 pm Warren Ellis already did. See freak angels.
January 18, 2013 11:26 pm Noooooooooooooo! I'm really really sad. I'm sitting here at four in the morning with my ipad on the toilet and just wanted to quick check the mails and you are crushing me with those news. Ron, you were always the one with the (nearly) same taste in comics as me. I will miss your opinion. But as I look at my subscription list with now 40 image titles in it, image won't need your help to sell their comics to me. Either way, congratulations. I'm happy for you. Sounds like a hell of a job. Good luck! And welcome paul, always liked the shows when you were jumping in.
January 11, 2013 1:45 pm Living in germany I have no other option than getting my comics by mail. At the begining of each month i get a big pack with the circa 50 titles I pull. When its january I get the december issues. For example are batman#5, twd#105 or avengers#1 right now on my To read pile.( And no there is no discount, i m paying full cover price. And the damn weak € makes em even more expensive. Three years ago when we had an strong € the exchange rate was much better.) So I m naturally always a month behind on potw podcasts which sometimes can be a little annoying. I always have to study the previews catalogue so I m not missing out on titles I m potentially interrested in. I have to put for example hickmans east of west into my subscription list to get it "on time" so the guy i m ordering from can preorder it. If i cancel a subscription i have to wait till the next month until its really canceled. That and a growing space problem on my shelves and in my longboxes is driving me succesively into going digital.
January 9, 2013 3:45 pm Literally learnt to read with asterix. Have read them books more than twenty times. I recommend the books where they visit other countries to have a look at some stereotypes from an european angle. Especially love the asterix in corsica volume cause i love that little island with its delicious cheese. Ahh, and the running gag with the pirates. Damn, now i'm dwelling in childhood memories
October 9, 2012 9:01 pm Already am on the saga train. Preordered the point of impact and macgyver series. Bumped as ron that near death has ended out of the nowhere. Waiting for the macgyver thing since it was announced that becky cloonan would be attached to it, even though she isn't, still can't wait for it.... Back to my childhood...
