March 20, 2013 2:28 pm I'd say most folk reticent of trying out comics aren't too keen on the superhero genre, so I've had success throwing almost anything Top Shelf or Fantagrafix at them. Also Y:TLM or the Parker GNs or any Chris Ware. Don't force them into super heroics just because you want to prove that genre can be great, start with other genres to get them warm to the medium at first. And then after initial gift giving, let them come to you for suggestions and don't just unload a bunch of unfrequented books at them.
March 19, 2013 3:31 pm I know not everyone loves his work (I think you're crazy, but can respect it may not be for you) it's hard to deny the unique perspective and ability to get to the core of a character that Morrison brings.
January 18, 2013 4:15 pm Happy trails Ron, congrats Paul, soldier on Josh and Connor. Thanks to all of you for making this community a bastion of sensibility in a murky sea of droning nonsense. The care and hard work you have all put into iFanboy shows day in and day out and I'm sure that same level of talent and work ethic will lead Ron to further success at his new venture. "It's a magical world, Hobbes, ol' buddy, let's go exploring!"
January 9, 2013 1:10 am Thank god the Internet wasn't what it is now when Peter Parker hit a pregnant Mary Jane during the Clone Saga. Also, the content being generated by iFanboy in regards to this current storyline has been phenomenal (thanks Jim and Romo!) with insightful, honest and rational articles looking at all sides of this current turn of fictional events. Stress on the "fictional"

December 22, 2012 2:19 am 'twas four days before Christmas, when all through the net Many fanboys were trolling, that's a sure bet. The panels were framed by words ringing true In hopes that Josh Flanagan soon would be there. Ron was snuggled in a nest of Uncanny Which was not sanitary. And Conor read Bat books And ignored Detective's poor looks. When out on the main page there arose such a clatter And the number of comments soon became fatter. Away to the post we read with great awe, Josh giving thanks is what we all saw! Now Aaron, now Snyder, now Ellis and Hickman! On Chiang! On Hardman! On Parker and Kirkman! To the top of the charts! To the top of stack! Keep creating and selling the books that we lack! The iFanbase was there cheering him on, And away he wrote with a wit put upon, A great thank you for the fans, the never-be-meek, Keep reading, keep writing, make your pick of the week And we heard him exclaim, 'ere he posted out of sight, "Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night. Now I'm done writing, okay? Alright?

December 6, 2012 11:49 am Am I the only one who is lukewarm to Hyperion being on the team? I just don't think a Superman-analogue fits well in the Marvel U.
