    January 25, 2011 7:53 pm I picked this up and read it over lunch.  I thought it was a great issue.   I feel that Hickman brought the three story threads together nicely at the end.  Well done.  The Future Foundation kids are just great.  I'd take a comic about just them.  Oh, wait..
    January 13, 2011 4:13 pm The dudes in the background look like the guys on the big bad's ship from Last Starfighter.  This costume looks solid.   
    January 13, 2011 11:29 am Since War of the Green Lanterns will be happening at the same time, I have to imagine that this is a away to help the struggling Superman franchise with a crossover event written by Johns himself.  
    January 12, 2011 5:54 pm Nice article.  I've always felt that while Avatar has a few top writers putting out product, their line tends to the extreme (e.g. Crossed, Black Summer, etc.), which likely hurts sales.

    I'd love to know what effect, if any, Haven would have to the final Direct Market figures.  I imagine its a drop in the bucket, but I know they carry Boom and a few other titles in Previews.

    Very nice article, Jason.  Your inclusionary vs. exclusionary point is spot on.

    There might be some minor shuffling of the order from reader to reader, but it sounds like you nailed the ranking.  I'd switch Red Robin and Batgirl, but I think its clear which are the Top 3 at the moment.

    @70 - I agree.  Totally effin bummed out. 

    On the heels of that Deadpool cancellation nonsense, can we cancel 2! Deadpool books and keep Thor TMA?

    In all seriousness, another case of critical acclaim and commercial failure.  Sigh....

    Thanks John.  I've always been interested in hearing a creator's take about working on beloved licensed properties.  So the question is: 

    "which would be more difficult on a personal level -- creating a great Rockford Files story (where there would be the pressure of nailing the "voice" of the characters), or coming up with an original story, like you did with Stumptown?  I assume both have their creative hurdles, but I'd love to hear your feelings on the topic."

    I give this series my highest possible recommendation.  If you're a fan of fun and 80's slasher films, then you need to give this a try.  

    Pooch is of course awesome.  And if you want to see more of him, check out the Murder Messiah Annual that came out a few weeks ago.  It essentially prints the last two unpublished issues of the DDP run.

    There are so many great stories out there wanting to be published.  Please support Kickstarter!  I was very happy to participate in Steve's campaign, and like Wood, I'm eagerly awaiting that collected edition.  But as Jason alluded to at the beginning of the article, I just like seeing brilliant, creative people creating.  We'll all be richer for it.
