    February 13, 2013 10:17 am I get a Chaykin vibe from his work. Good Chaykin, that is.
    November 28, 2012 11:51 am Using new characters that were complex and interesting as cannon fodder is really frustrating. You can't become an A-list character if you don't get opportunities to build an audience and develop a history. An unfortunate by product of that is that many of these B- and C- list characters are some of the few representatives of groups that were not allowed to be part of the Golden and Silver age and seeing them be talked about as not mattering is kind of a slap in the face. I love comics and the creators are both talented guys and I'm sure they'll create a compelling story but I'm going in with a sense of dread. I am a big HazMat and Mettle fan and I think it's easy to become one if you actually spent the time and money to follow their stories. Unfortunately, comic fans didn't give them a fair shake but continue to complain about the sameness of things. I reserve judgement on the series until I read it but the disposable nature of these new (and interesting) characters it frustrating to watch as someone who wants to see comics grow and reach new people.
    November 13, 2012 12:51 pm I really like this take on Cyclops. He's been the most intriguing character since Whedon's Astonishing and I think AvX Consequences was a magnificent epilogue to the conflict and why Scott is still a hero at heart but gives you reasons why he no longer can be the boy scout he's been for so long. You're right about the headpiece. It will probably grow on me but it's gonna take some getting used to.
    July 17, 2012 1:56 pm I read it over a lunch break and man, it stayed with me. Inventive premise with great art. You feel like you're learning so much about food and subtly pick up on the different rules of this world. My only real criticism is that I found one of the two antagonists to be far more fleshed out and compelling.
    April 11, 2012 1:54 pm Got my first ever sketch from this guy. A complete class act. Might double dip at C2E2 this weekend
    March 1, 2012 10:46 am Dude, I know you probably didn't mean any harm, but at no point did the character stepping in for Mark talk like that. If Snoop Dogg had stepped in to fill the role of Invincible (which, let's face it, would also have been pretty cool) it would have been all good. My bad if you actually speak/type in -izzles all the time.
    March 1, 2012 10:36 am I'm a fan of both books and I see where you're coming from but I think the fact that it is viewed as shock value is the issue. The story is something we've seen in comics for a while, a hero is incapacitated and someone inspired by them steps up into the role. Who is to say you can't be inspired by someone who doesn't look just like you? Right now it comes off like a gimmick but hopefully in time it won't. Heck, having people of different races in mundane commercials is even a step forward (black people use toothpaste? Who knew?). I don't think your opinion is wrong but I'm actually looking forward to seeing something like this come of as normal instead of gimmicky or novel. At least as normal as one can get in a book featuring a dude named Dinosaurus. For a much more succinct (as well as a more complex) way to get to the same message check this out: http://4thletter.net/2012/02/best-webcomic-i-read-2011-chris-haley-curt-franklins-lets-be-friends-again/
    March 1, 2012 10:12 am I highly recommend the ultimate collections. They're beautiful hardcovers with some great supplemental material. Use the amazon link on ifanboy and pick 'em up!
    February 17, 2012 3:36 pm Agreed! Reed Gunther is awesome!
    February 17, 2012 3:30 pm I agree. The man was going thought a mental breakdown but took responsibility for his actions and will be the last person to forgive himself. The world is a very gray place with honorable crooks and merciless saints. I think the moral event horizon if further away than this instance. I wasn't a fan of Hank initially but the fact that he does have this moment of great weakness that haunts him is compelling. Reading the Initiative, the Ant-Man/Wasp mini series, and Avengers Academy has made me a fan of not just Hank but the fact that this is a part of his history that both haunts and motivates him. I think his imperfection is what has made him a driven mentor because he knows the highest highs and the lowest lows of the game. Yes he's fictional but this a website that has a community of people united in our shared passion about the stories being told. The whole "it's fake you idiots" tone was unnecessary and insulting. The "fake" tale of Hank Pym also has something missing from the Chris Brown story: remorse in both words and deeds. Chris Brown has still shown angry and homophobic tendencies in the years since the event.
