Name: Clayton Scholefield

Bio: "First comes smiles, then lies. Last is gunfire." - Roland Deschain, of Gilead.Big fan of comics in general. Batman and Daredevil are favorites, but also enjoy immensely what indy books have to offer. ASP, Oni, Top Shelf, and Dark Horse (can this really be called an "indy" any more?) are some of my favorite publishers.My big comicbook crisis is trying to determine what to read monthly and what to trade wait for. I never seem to have a handle on this sort of management. Sometimes I end up double-dipping!The gang at iFanboy here have done well to make me check out books that may not of hit my radar the first time around. Fear Agent and Fell are examples of this. I am greatful for the work they do here. I may not post much, but I am a daily visitor.

August 9, 2013 3:08 pm One of the best 1st issues I've read this year. I meant to just buy the first one and wait for the collection. No way! Not going to happen! I just added this to the pull today.
July 15, 2013 3:26 pm I don't think I'll be able to resist this.
July 4, 2013 12:38 pm Getting Burnham to do the entire issue here was a big deal to me. If you read this Chris, thank you! This is totally worth being a late release for this. I won't expect the extra-sized #13 to be all Burnham, but if he has 20+ pages in his belt I'll be impressed. I have to say that seeing Batman scream a command to his bats in batspeak took this issue to an instant POW for me. Over-the-F'n-top!!!
June 18, 2013 12:41 pm Campbell is a great addition to the art team in this universe. Hope he sticks around.
June 18, 2013 12:39 pm I really hope DH are smart enough to collect all of Corben's recent works with them in a juicy HC down the road.
June 18, 2013 12:36 pm I love this character. This is a great universe that Golden and Mignola have created. Unlike sitara119, I'll be buying Mignolaverse in paper till the end of time. They have always taken great care with the letters column too. A nice bonus that you don't see in digital (I think).

June 4, 2013 12:47 pm The last time DD was in the snow, Rivera won an Eisner! (DD #7 vol.3) Lee Weeks is quite underrated. An incredible artist. I have read the last issue of the first volume many times (#380). The book went out with a BANG! before Joey Q came by and saved DD and then the rest of Marvel.
June 4, 2013 12:40 pm I'd go back to the well of Mazz for Batman Year One in this format. I would also splurge for a remarked edition of New Frontier. Also, I think the first Galactus issues of FF would be a must have. I think Scott has the most awesome job putting these together at idw.
