April 3, 2013 3:49 pm @flakbait Yes, but the thing is I'm from Mexico and the shipping to and from the US to get them bound (I haven't seen something that has the same quality as the US binders here in Mexico) is too expensive and I might be better off just buying the Trades or HC's but I dont't want to own two of everything, my only exception so far has been the Fear Agent omnibus which I have in single issues as well. I've been toying around with the idea of getting the Deluxe Editions of the Fables Hardcovers even though I already have the trades, they look so good! Another one that I used to re read A LOT was Ultimate Spider-Man, good times!
April 3, 2013 12:50 pm I really like to re-read arcs in trades, in single issues not so much. "Sadly", most of my collection is in single issues and I'm not too fond of buying stuff in trades, hardcovers, etc. if I already own it...if someone offered to trade all of my single issues for their corresponding TPB or HC I would gladly do it! Anyway, the ones I've re-read the most are the first three volumes of Invincible, Runaways (1-18), the first arc of Locke and Key and Geoff Johns' Flash "Rogue War".
March 26, 2013 6:25 pm @adrianrigter To be fair, it shouldn't be at the bottom of the front page...like it has always been...ha! thanks for the heads up! Anyway, back on topic, BPRD Vampire looks good.... :)
March 26, 2013 1:25 pm I've never read any BPRD and only a couple of Hellboy trades but I'm going to get BPRD Vampire, the art team alone is worth checking out! I'm also trying out "East of West", which I'm surprised no one has mentioned yet.
March 21, 2013 2:54 pm Good review! But I think you meant to give the Art a 5 (or at least not a 1) and maybe forgot about it? It is a very entertaining story, I think it would be the equivalent of a good summer blockbuster.
March 8, 2013 8:51 pm I was expecting the same (I'm from Mexico) but surprisingly it played without any problems.
March 7, 2013 2:50 pm I actually used to like him a lot and now I don't care much for him. I think his style now looks a lot like J. Scott Campbells', it used to be more unique, and while I like JSC's style, I don't like it when it is used by someone else.
March 4, 2013 2:11 pm I was thinking of NextWave as well as an excellent example of fun comics :) On the other hand, check out CHEW, it is awesome! it has a great sense of humor (pay attention to all the panels!!!) and there hasn't been a single issue that hasn't made me at least chuckle (just like NextWave did) Enjoy
February 1, 2013 4:41 pm I was trying more to make a point that even though I got an issue that was the beginning of the end of a run, where there were no introductions made for the characters (except maybe a couple nods to their abilities) that appeared left and right, Good Rogues, Bad Rogues, the Reverse Flash, etc., it was the perfect jumping on point for me because I was just in the middle of the action...well, that and Scott Kollins' art :) @USPUNX I think with "how does a reader know if its a book they like" he meant (correct me if I'm wrong) that, for example, someone who has just seen the Avengers movie and is interested in knowing more might go to their LCS and feel intimidated by the numbering. New Series or series that are "comic book only" might be a harder sell for new readers as well.
January 31, 2013 6:52 pm My first Geoff Johns' Flash issue was 220, the beginning of Rouge War. It was the beginning of the arc but the ending of Johns' run and with a shit load of back story that I didn't know (I knew the basics, Barry was dead, Wally was the Flash, he runs fast, that's about it), that made me get the next 4-5 issues so I could see the arc in its entirety as well as hunt down every issue of the Flash by Johns, it still is my favorite comic book run ever. What I mean to say is if the first issue in any series that you get is compelling you will be interested in the story as a whole and hopefully will want to know more about what happened before (maybe with back issues, trades, Wikipedia, the Internet, etc) and will get you interested in what follows, so even if Flash 220 may not have been the best "jumping on point" that so many titles try to get every now and then, it managed to make a life-long fan out of me.
