    Unless next issue is mind blowingly awesome, I’m dropping the series. I was excited to hear about Millar and Hitch…

    I’m officially dropping this book.  There were way too many moments where I was confused, or angry, or just plain…

    So I’m pretty sure I don’t like this book anymore.  I’ll admit, losing Mary Jane has turned out better than…

    August 29, 2011 8:25 pm "We didn’t even get into the digital sales. Mostly because it seemed impolite to bring up." That's exactly how every conversation I've had with my LCS owner goes. "Yeah, DC reboot, crazy stuff, Barbara Gordon, 52 #1's . . . crickets chirping." I feel like I'm insulting him personally to admit it's a pain to walk to his store once a week.

    August 17, 2010 2:35 pm For those interested, it looks like the full book, Packaging Boyhood: Saving our Sons from Superheroes, Slackers and Other Media Stereotypes is available on Google Books (books.google.com) to read.  I agree with cahubble that, from the 20 or so pages I've read so far, little of the book is specific about superheroes, but generalized to include television, music, movies, literature, advertisements, etc.  I get the sense that the article Josh brought to our attention was about recent statements Professor Lamb made to capitalize on the recent trend of superhero movies as a way to connect what's current and popular to her books.  Also - again, I haven't read more than 20 pages yet - I'm getting a strong sense of Outcome Based Academia, as RobAbsten put it, citing examples that specifically prove her point, not drawing conclusions from the evidence thats out there.  I'm going to attempt to finish the book, without getting too worked up, and see how I feel about her theories then.
    June 23, 2010 4:09 pm What's Blade gonna do now?  I, for one, am hoping for a buddy comedy NBC series starring opposite Christopher Lloyd.

    Johns and Coipel - probably my favorite in their respective fields.  Anyone read this?  Any good?

    April 13, 2010 11:14 am New arc?  That make this a good jumping back on point?
    March 20, 2010 1:14 am I think it's a mistake.  Once he was Johnny Storm, that should have been it for Evans in Marvel movies.  I am personally going to have trouble getting past the switch of characters, especially since both characters are in the same world.  It would be like if Casey Affleck had tried to play Danny Ocean in Ocean's 12. 
    March 15, 2010 4:45 pm I stopped reading this after the war with the Adversary ended with Flycatcher and Haven.  None of the issues following it seemed to live up to what came before.  Has this been any better recently?

    Is anyone on the iFanstaff going to get an iPad and, if so, will we see a review of the iBookstore comic reader?

    That's a lot of lower case i's.

    January 13, 2010 5:41 pm I don't see what harm there is in leaving unsold copies of DC books on the shelves or in the shop's back closets.  Why would Marvel be so eager to get these books out of retailer's hands?
