    August 8, 2014 2:47 am Agreed. Why cast Karen Gillam for a one note character? I'm hoping she has a bigger part, like her comic book counterpart did, when they finally do their version of the Infinity Gauntlet.
    August 8, 2014 2:40 am I was surprised you guys didn't really talk about the first full appearance of Thanos. We got to see how he looked and spoke. I was a little thrown off by Thanos calling Ronan "boy." That seems natural for Josh Brolin to say but out of place for Thanos.
    March 24, 2013 10:52 pm Greg Pak did address where Bruce Banner went in one of the Hulk annuals (or maybe it was a one-shot.) It wasn't the main story. It was a short. While the War Bond slept, he changed back to Banner. In his head Hulk and Bruce had a conversation. Basically, Hulk said Bruce was useless on that planet. Bruce agreed that as long as they were on the alien planet he would stay away. The air idea is better but an explanation was given. It just wasn't included in the collected edition.
    January 18, 2013 12:49 pm I tried MDCU too. The thing that made it unusable to me is that there's rarely a continuous run of issues within a series. There's commonly a gap somewhere that prevents you from reading a full storyline. I don't know if this is by accident or design but I rarely found a full of run of something I wanted to read. Also, the guided view mode was frequently off center or would skip a panel, forcing you to go out to full page, then zoom in, then go back in to guided view to keep reading.
    October 19, 2012 12:48 pm Comic Store Heroes On National Geographic Channel was a better show. More realistic slice-of-life and less obnoxious.
    August 30, 2012 12:17 pm Except for Mass Effect, none of these game based comics hold up on their own. Halo: Helljumper and Left 4 Dead: The Sacrifice are examples of comics based on video games that still have good writing and art.
    May 2, 2012 12:51 pm You forgot Blade, the movie that started the Marvel movie renaissance.
    April 10, 2012 10:36 am I liked the premise of Wonder Woman #1 (2006). Wonder Woman once again has a secret identity that works for the government. Logically it was in the D.E.O. (DC's answer to SHIELD). Too bad Allan Heinberg was chronically late and misfired the execution of that concept. But it's the one that best echos the history of Wonder Woman while keeping it modern.
    April 2, 2012 11:54 am Thanks Conor for making that position clear for this site. If The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes season 2 follows the pattern season 1 did, episodes (or a season pass) will be available on ITunes (for Apple) or Zune (for Xbox 360) within a week of the show's original airdate.
    March 14, 2012 7:40 pm "Spectre’s unique power-set has made him hard to confine to a single series, and hard for readers to root for given his near omnipotence." The Spectre (1992) by John Ostrander managed to do this for over 60 issues. It helped that Ostrander, a former theology student, laid out well thought out rules for what the Spectre could and could not do. Something desperately needed for magic based characters. The series didn't end because of poor sales. Like Sandman, Ostrander had a clear definition of where the story was going and how Jim Corrigan's story would end. It was only in other hands, the Hal Jordan Spirit of Redemption (bleh) and the Day of Vengeance/Crispus Allen eras that the character became unrelateable again. With the DC reboot, I say give it to Ostrander again to see if he has a new take on the character that was best in his hands.
