May 28, 2013 2:21 pm Beyond excited for this, the horror landscape has been sadly bare these past few months.

August 17, 2012 6:06 pm There are very few reasons that would make me stop reading this book. But killing off mark would be one of them. I just have not enjoyed the Bulletproof-as-Invincible material thus far. I've read damn near 100 issues of Mark over the last, what has it been, 9 years? Without mark as the main character I don't think I'd be motivated to continue buying the title. Unless of course it became an Allen-Centric book
February 8, 2012 3:39 am I think there is truth behind some of these younger readers not getting in the Alan Moore camp. Myself only being 22, I can speak "in the know," if you will. In my opinion Watchmen isn't over-rated, it's undeniably a great piece of literature. I've even studied it in a few English courses I've taken in the course of my Major, along with Titles such as Maus, American Born Chinese, and 100 Bullets. What I think Watchmen is, is outdated. To some, this comes across as the paranoid ravings of an embittered old man, but taken as a period piece it's really excellent, much like V for Vendetta. However it has lost a lot of its "oomph" over the years. That said it's still one of the top selling books in the LCS I work at. Passing by all of that, Neonomicon, in my opinion, was a poor attempt at the Lovecraftian Style, and a book I had absolutely no interest in reading by halfway through. Best comic author of all time? My pick goes to Neil Gaiman. Up and comers? Scott Snyder and Robert Kirkman.
February 1, 2012 4:20 pm When me and my girlfriend got together she had read many of the "best comics has to offer" type books, Watchmen, Blankets, Some assorted Wolverine, Spider-Man, and many Bat-Family books. I got her really interested in the medium with Umbrella Academy: Apocalypse Suite, she just got layed off from work, so now she gets to read pretty much my whole Pull List before I do (Excluding a few Titles, such as The Boys, which she doesn't like) her current favorites are American Vampire, Batman, and Swamp Thing. Also, I think she might have a crush on Scott Snyder.
November 22, 2011 4:09 pm I'm thankful for Scott Snyder. Having actually met him at a CBLDF event this year really put the whole industry I'm trying to break into in perspective for me. He's a great guy, who deserves all the success he gets, and then some. And I'm thankful we live in a time, where despite all the bad in the world, we have this amazing escapist fantasy that comics bring us.
November 16, 2011 10:20 pm Ugh. Yet another one of the good ones bites the dust. I know it's been said before, but why not cancel things like X-Factor, or Daken? X-23 was actually good month to month, and if they could have kept Phil Noto on the book for even like...5 more issues I would have been in heaven. At least Laura will have a presence in AA...which I will probably have to start getting. Unless she actually opts to join Logan at Westchester, which would be awesome. As long as Marvel doesn't cancel Uncanny X-Force I'll be fine.
