It seems strange that Marvel cancelled this series before taking the time to see the sales of this “all new…

This was just embarrassing. Kieron Gillen is a solid writer, so I can only imagine editorial edict was responsible for…

While I thought the first issue of this new series was disappointing, there was something charmingly naive about it. This…

December 8, 2012 1:17 am "Anyone who would refer to the Calvin and Hobbes collection as a dust collector or dismisses it as a mere collection of an 80s funny strip instantly loses my attention." Yep. That's where I stopped reading.
October 9, 2012 6:51 pm ...and my post "Now" Marvel count goes up to 2.
June 11, 2012 7:21 pm Any word on where this leaves Jesus Saiz? He's sadly missed from Birds Of Prey.
January 7, 2012 9:24 pm If I may quote Ryan Davis: "Why does Cyclops have 5 fingers and no thumb?"

October 21, 2011 8:36 pm Wow, sad news. Best of luck for the futue.
September 30, 2011 11:20 pm This may have already been covered (I am posting this fresh off reading the article and haven't read the other posts) but, it seems to me, the main reason for the relaunch was to have a bunch of books starting at #1 to coincide with going day and date digital. I think the digital market was the target and, certainly from my experience, it's been hugely successful. I've had several friends, who are not comic readers, check out the new books on their iPads. And they plan to stick with it. The big appeal for them was the "here's where I start" factor. I would also add that I think there has been a deliberate move on DC's part away from categorising books. Making a book "All Ages" is a guide for parents. Kids don't care one way or another. And there's plenty of books in the relaunch that kids are loving. They're the books "seasoned" readers rated poorly for simplistic "boring" story lines. You won't find evidence of this online. New readers don't hang around on comics forums. You won't even find it in shops. The only place you'll find it is when your non-comic friends start talking to you about what they're reading. And the best thing you can do is encourage them. Not tell them why the book they like sucks. I think it's been a resounding success for DC. It's exciting times.
August 16, 2011 11:18 pm Is LaFuente going to be the regular artist on the book now? Can we confirm this?? I hope so. It felt like reading New Mutants back when Brett Blevins was doing the art (which is when I first started reading it). I was giddy.
