    November 5, 2012 9:38 pm I am like the majority where I didn't like the prequels, much, but I don't think I have ever read a Star Wars comic I liked. However, there are MANY Star Wars novels that have none of the original characters and are excellent. On a side note, I read on another site that. The reason Matthew Vaughn left days of future. Past. Is because. He is a possible candidate for episode 7 director.
    August 16, 2012 5:39 pm Man, that is some awesome Speculating, to tie Carol Danvers into the Avengers movies. I would like to see that. Unfortunately, the concept art made it seem like Starlord was the human lead of the movie.
    July 9, 2012 3:35 pm What a wonderful comment. The one thing I have noticed on this site a few times is the disdain for the Grant Morrison run New X-men run. My friend and I both got back into comics because of that and Ultimate X-men. Since then, We have both spent Thousands of dollars on comics, which I am assuming many people on here have. I was by no means an expert judge on Storytelling when I first got into comics, when I was a kid in the late eighties/ early 90s, but I do know that I stopped reading them by High School because whatever sense of unpredictability and excitement they generated had gone away. In the early 2000s, that seemed to have come back, in particular with New X-men, Ultimate Spider-man and Ultimate X-men. I am glad someone pointed out that it was a noteworthy run, and that nowadays it seems that there is little care to at least cover up that all creative decisions are based on money. I only read four or five Marvel books, and the majority of them are written by Remender. I know it is Ironic that he is going to be writing Uncanny Avengers.
    April 11, 2012 3:24 pm I don't know if anyone mentioned this on the other thread, but I feel like this ties in with the comments about being able to write a good Superman story. Aren't Invincible and Irrideemable just other versions of a Superman story? This kind of ties in with Jim's comment about Superman being the Model T Ford. Writers use the Superman Concept, all the time. There are so many different versions of Superman- The Sentry, Hyperion, Supreme, Plutonian, etc. Every universe has their version. Usually, the power gets to them and they do horrendous things. I think the best Superman Stories are the ones that show his true potential, and how terrifying it is, and yet he chooses to be the clean cut hero that he is. In the other article someone commented about how the real 'Wish I could be' factor that Superman inspires is the fact that we wish we could be as good a person as he is. He is that good even though he has power to basically destroy the planet.
    March 29, 2012 8:48 pm The animation on Green Lantern seems uninspired, but it doesn't keep me from watching it, or enjoying it. I grew up (as probably most of the people who use this site) watching the classic transformers, GI Joe and Ninja Turtles and so most modern cartoons seem lame in comparisson. there are exceptions, such as Justic League and then the Beast Wars transformers cartoon. The CGI Green Lantern reminds me of Beast Wars a lot. they are taking the Red Lanterns in a completely different direction , but I like the set up they have for the story. I bet there will eventually be a crossover.
    September 13, 2011 6:44 pm I was thinking that the woman in the cloak was actually three characters merged into one. Raven Void some female vertigo character The only thing we really know is that Red Glowing Girl has been aware of three separate time lines- The old DC, Wildstorm and the part of Vertigo that had Constantine and Swamp Thing. Has raven shown up in any of the relaunch books? Has Void?
    August 29, 2011 8:23 pm Man, Froggulper do you have a wide grin on your face when you tell Children that Santa doesn't exist? That was like a suicide note for comic book fandom. Uggh,
    March 27, 2011 9:19 pm Im surprised no one else is fipping out on Ron Swanson. That is just a joke post, right? Who the hell would write 90% of comics have crap writing, and great visuals, and that is why we like them, on a site like this? It is a joke, right? I mean why would you have a username on here?
    February 7, 2011 11:29 pm I am glad you posted this article for two reasons:

    1) Sure this movie is sort of B-film bad, but it is really entertaining. @Marshak, you are right, I would watch this over X-3 any day too.

    2) I was sort of bothered by the lack of Judge Dredd knowledge on this site, and the sort of proud to not know what it was, when the news of a new 'Dredd' movies was coming out. So many of our favorite comic book artists and writers came from 2000ad, not to mention that there have been numerous crossovers between Dredd and characters like Batman. I am not some sort of Judge Dredd advocate, but in terms of comics, I would say that Dredd is as big in the UK as many of our main icons are here.
    February 3, 2011 2:00 pm This article seems like the positive follow up to the 'Comics Industry Sinking Ship' article.
