    December 15, 2012 3:31 am I've been loving Brian Wood's run on Conan the Barbarian but was wondering what purpose the old manual typewriter font in the narrative boxes served. Is that a reference to older Conan that I haven't read? Is it supposed to conjure up a sense that this is all being taken from some original text? Or is it meant to do something new?

    November 8, 2012 4:10 am Really love the DC Histories feature of iFanboy. Just got back into comics five years ago after a 20 year hiatus and these character breakdowns answer a lot of questions that have been sitting on the back burner. REALLY well written in my humble opinion.
    November 4, 2012 12:26 am thanks... found some of the trades on line, but difficult to find out what issue #s they are compiled from. will check out the dgital
    November 2, 2012 10:54 pm Is the Waid run compiled in omnibus or trade?

    January 19, 2012 11:43 am I understand how this new logo can serve as a connecting point between DC's various properties, but I don't quite understand John Rood's comparison/contrast between DC and Vertigo as an explanation. Why did he single out that one aspect? Does this mean that future Vertigo projects are going to bear the DC stamp more overtly? Is it really a distinguishing factor that DC superheroes have secret identities and Vertigo comics are about good vs. evil? Haven't the protagonists of American Vampire, iZombie, and Unwritten tried to keep their identities secret at times? Is Scalped really about good vs. evil? Does Jonah Hex have a secret identity? Is secret identity a euphemism for costumed heroes? I have no complaints about the logos but I'm curious about the explanation.

    January 19, 2012 4:29 am There aren't any comic shops where I live, but I haven't resorted to getting my comics illegally. There are plenty of online suppliers that provide a comprehensive catalog, free shipping, bags, boards, and good discounts, depending on how many ongoing titles a customer pulls from week to week. I've been using one of these suppliers for the past three years. It's an honest alternative to the brick and mortar shop. That being said, if there were a good shop nearby, I'd be there on a regular basis.
