May 2, 2013 12:23 pm I move that iFanboy begin a regular feature: "Great Moments in Comics Hair-story."
April 25, 2013 4:24 pm I remember reading that page when the series first came out. It really blew my 11-year-old mind and made me think about different things you could do with a page.
April 25, 2013 4:22 pm I'd consider going, but only if I knew for sure that Ron Richards, the Image Comics superstar Director of Business Development, was going to be in attendance.
April 3, 2013 7:49 pm I read every floppy I buy at least twice. I've found that I have a tendency to go through everything really fast the first time because I am excited about it and then I make an effort to read it again and pay better attention. In fact, if I don't feel like reading something again, that's when I start thinking about dropping the series. I also am always re-reading something in trade. I keep a trade that I've read on my bedside table and read it for at least an issue or so before going to sleep, usually after reading whatever book I'm reading for about a half an hour. So I've read everything I own at least twice (it's getting more difficult to stay awake now that we have a baby though). The series I've read the most are Y: The Last Man, Preacher, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and the silver age Doom Patrol. Only once have I read a collected edition and immediately opened it and reread it after finishing. That was when I got the Fear Agent Library late last year.
March 26, 2013 9:54 am When I was in middle school I read an old reprint of a Namor comic where he exclaimed “Sufferin’ Shad!” and I really tried to work that phrase into my regular life (and no, I was not popular in middle school).
March 22, 2013 3:00 pm Maybe they're planning on using him in flashbacks as Cold War era Nick Fury. They'll avoid the whole issue of why he hasn't aged by making "Nick Fury" a rank and not a person.
March 22, 2013 2:30 pm There's no need for iFanboy editors to disagree, he would have been perfect as Cap OR Hawkeye. He played Sundance, but he could have been Butch and Newman could have been Sundance.
DC Loses Two More Writers Before They Start: Andy Diggle Leaves ACTION COMICS and Joshua Fialkov Leaves GREEN LANTERN CORPS & RED LANTERNS [UPDATE]
March 20, 2013 1:19 pm Seconded.
March 18, 2013 8:52 pm I hope you don't mind my adding two things Adventurer (I was also pretty into Crossgen, particularly Way of the Rat and Ruse). Crossgen was also different from other companies in that their talent were salaried employees with benefits, which let them draw a lot of good writers and artists into the fold. I don't remember if it was last year or the year before, but Marvel released a Ruse mini series written by Mark Waid, the original author of the series, that was definitely worth checking out if you can find it.
March 18, 2013 1:19 pm That's a really good line-up. I forgot that Silvestri was on New X-Men for a little while and I totally forgot about Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, which I only read a few issues of but remember enjoying. I wonder if Marvel will ever release those Crossgen collections digitally or something, I'd love to give them another read.
