To call DETECTIVE COMICS #15 a “Death of the Family” tie-in is being a bit generous, so if you’re only…

January 21, 2013 5:14 pm Lots of pulls, but I'm most looking forward to JUSTICE LEAGUE, THE MASSIVE, and SAUCER COUNTRY. Also giving YOUNG AVENGERS a whirl, since the only other Marvel NOW! book I'm reading is THOR and I feel like I should give another one a shot... BQ: Quantum Leap, with a new, younger Leaper (who can leap into events from the last thirty years), possibly searching for Sam Beckett.
January 21, 2013 5:09 pm I'd probably prefer an all-new cast of characters at this point (though guest appearances are definitely fun), but otherwise I'm with you on the BQ.
December 6, 2012 4:43 pm Crazy thought here: Garth of Izar. I think Mitchell is almost certainly it, but Garth is a Starfleet captain and brilliant tactician who goes a little nuts, gathers a group of criminals to take over the universe, and the "chess game" allusion in the plot synopsis reminds of the gambit Kirk & Spock use to defeat him in the episode. The terrible, terrible episode. The odds of this are next to zero, but as long as we're speculating...
December 6, 2012 4:39 pm I noticed the hair, too. About as close to Dehner as it's possible to get, it would seem. The only potential issue is that Orci said the current IDW ongoing is canon as far as he's concerned, and my understanding is that the comics have been developed accordingly with the movie, and they've done Gary Mitchell. (Dehner wasn't in it, though.) That could just be an encounter that gives him reason to take revenge, and it wouldn't be the first time that this movie series had significant plot setup in a comic book.
November 15, 2012 6:17 pm I passed this over because I frequently don't care for what Marvel publishes lately (much as I try to) and Thor is pretty low on my characters-I-care-about list, but this does indeed sound like a book I need to pick up next time I've got the opportunity...
November 15, 2012 6:15 pm Well, to be fair, I think everyone who's been reading Superman is in that boat.
November 15, 2012 5:10 pm I think it's a bit of a common misconception that cosplayers gravitate towards such characters more than others, so I think it is, as you say, that they get the attention. They just tend to be noticed (and photographed) a bit more often than the alternative, and often by people who aren't necessarily around for the geekness (like, how many "Sexiest Cosplays of Comic-Con" galleries do you think are out there on sites that don't care about comics, conventions, etc., the rest of the year?). I've never taken a count or anything, but in my con-going experiences I'd say I've seen at least as many (if not more) fully-clothed cosplays of some kind than the more risque variety. It may depend somewhat on what kind of con you go to, and which ones, though.
October 23, 2012 12:46 pm I read Ghost #0 and though the art was good, I was just really unimpressed with the final product. Neither creator in top form, I think. Is #1 any better?
October 22, 2012 5:44 pm Yes. What @itsbecca said.
October 22, 2012 5:43 pm "iFanboy" is a bit more practical, though, than "iFanboy-or-girl" or "iFanperson." "Fangirl" is a term, too, if not one associated with comics so much as other areas of geekdom more stereotypically associated with having female fans (manga, anime come to mind). In either case, I think those terms have come to imply a negative characterization of the sort of fan who is completely uncritical (and extremely defensive) of every bit of whatever they are a fanboy/fangirl of. I usually take the "fanboy" in "iFanboy" and the like as slightly self-deprecating.
