July 27, 2012 12:41 pm I dropped off after the name change....Is that really how Man Thing is talking now? Please say no.
July 3, 2012 1:13 pm I recently decided to cut down my books to 10 per month from around 40 per month and the overwhelming majority of those cuts were DC/Marvel books. It's not that those characters don't interest me anymore...it's just that there's these other books (like Saga) that seem so much more significant when I read them and in comparison, my regular superhero books feel so redundant and irrelevant. I'm craving new/big ideas right now and when I do want a regular superhero story, I feel like there are books like Invincible which do it better anyway. FWIW, these are 10 books I chose: Batman Batman Inc Walking Dead Invincible Saga Rachel Rising Chew Glory Manhattan Projects Danger Club
April 19, 2012 12:55 pm Great article! There's a really interesting discussion going on about this at the 11 O'Clock Comics forum that's worth checking out. Guy paid $200 for a Dennis Calero commission and is dealing with his extreme distaste for the final product (not surprising when you see it). http://bullpenbulletinspodcast.com/forum/index.php?topic=15174.0
March 15, 2012 1:02 pm I've been wondering that too...After reading this, I tried to go find Betrayal and it wasn't on digital either.
March 14, 2012 11:32 pm Saga was the main reason I went to the comic shop today and while it was definitely worth the wait, the fact that Exile came out of nowhere and made me interested in a property with which I had no prior experience made it my pick.
March 14, 2012 8:25 pm Got this without having ever read an Ape book or seeing an ape movie....This was awesome. There was so much story and character building in this first issue and I really enjoyed the art. It felt like a great jumping on point, but now I have to go hunt down the Betrayal mini to see how they are connected...Definitely my pick of the week.
January 26, 2012 8:18 pm I just finished the Alan Moore run for the first time and really enjoyed it. The Gotham arc from Book 5 was my favorite (Gotham being covered in plants and turning into a hippie oasis was awesome) and "The Anatomy Lesson" might be my favorite single issue I've ever read.
January 18, 2012 2:40 pm I just picked it up for $69 from DCBS using the 11 o'clock comics discount code (EOC8)...Can't wait to read these again.
December 7, 2011 6:25 pm The MP design reminds me a lot of The Filth covers...
September 9, 2011 1:01 pm I live a 2-minute bike ride away from a LCS in OKC, OK but decided it's worth driving 15 minutes to a different LCS because they actually treat me like a human and not some automated robot that is programmed to appear every Wednesday. My biggest complaint with the old LCS is that they would never have their new comics ready and on the shelf at noon on Wednesday when they opened. You would have to wait sometimes until 1:15 before he would allow you to begin buying. (In my head every time: IT'S NOON! WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN DOING ALL MORNING!?!) New store had a midnight opening for JL#1 where if you bought the first issue, EVERYTHING in the store was 52% off...On FCBD, they were open 24 hours and there was a different sale every two or so hours through the night.
