Name: Josh

Bio: I go by IthoSapien, or Itho for short. I've been collecting comics since I was 13 and I've been at it ever since with a few brief periods of stopping. Recently, I've committed myself to buying mostly DC with some IDW, Dark Horse, and Image thrown in for variety. I'm a big Sci-Fi guy, but I love comedy and adventure stuff too. I like to mix things up every now and then. My all-time favorite series is Hellboy. My favorite character right now is the Flash. That stuff may change in a few years. In short: I love comics, and I like to have fun. I'm also an aspiring comics writer/artist. Hopefully soon I'll have some stuff to show if anyone's interested.

September 2, 2013 3:22 pm @Phess1, I would be very interested in that. The only thing is I don't have any actual experience or know-how about that kind of thing. If I may, perhaps we could all get together on @ghostmanns website and iron out the details? He's posted the link a few times on this forum. Once we all get on there we can work out a schedule and maybe exchange emails or something.
September 1, 2013 11:52 pm You know that was what I wasgoing to type:Balls.'just that. Felt like I needed more though . But Balls indeed friend. BALLS.
September 1, 2013 11:21 pm Ok, this still sucks for me. And I'm a little upset, but that's only because I'm still a kid in a lot of ways. Physically im a Man, but I don't really have responsibilities. So I get this, I do. But someone above did this so I feel like I should too; give some shoutouts to some important people on here. @Paul Montgomery: You and your big words. We've gone around a few times on here. I wish I could take some of them back. It was never from a source of contempt or hate, just lack of sleep and a short temper. I wish you all the best. @Conor Kilpatrick: I'm gonna miss all your cartoon articles. I remember our last exchange, all I can say is ......... All the best. @Uspunx, I think we started out as friends. I don't know where we ended up after that. You're a smart guy though, I hope you can overlook that and focus on the good times. @Sitara119, You already know ;) @Nightwing97, you're gonna make me cry. Sorry I stole your idea. I've enjoyed our talks. @APoetSomeday, I just know you're gonna write the longest and most eloquent post on here. Don't ever change. I really enjoyed our talks, I learned alot from them. Wish I had better words to convey this, but thanks man. Alright, that's alot of space. There's loads more; @Daningotham, @Wheelhands, @Kennyg, @ghostmann, too many to say goodbye to (but you know I'll have to try). I might be around, I'm not big on podcasts. I'm just not, I've tried. I wish things could stay the same, but wheres the fun in that? My life got 20x times better after High School so I know this lesson. So if this is the end, everybody: See You Space Cowboys.
September 1, 2013 10:49 pm Jeezus, what a way to log on. Several hours ago I submitted my monthly reviews and then went to BBQ. I've got a belly full of greasy BBQ and you lay this CRAP on me?! I've been coming on this site daily for weeks? Months? Man I hope it's not years. What will I do instead, Live? Man I live everyday in the real world, it sucks (for me, I'm sure others are Millionaires with a phonebook of model's numbers). I guess this means I'll have one less destraction everyday, more time for reading, and less stress (according to my friends, this site ain't good for me). I love the idea of more reading time, but man I feel like I have too much time on my hands somedays. I came here because of an ad Scott Snyder appeared on, saying how great it was. Naturally, him being a Sorceror, I believed him. I started coming more and more because of the articles and the possibility of discussions. About comics. This was mind-blowing to me at the time. Then I could post reviews of my comics online. My mind vaporized then. I want to keep this short, I hate goodbyes. Even though I've only been here a few years I feel pretty connected to this place. Like a Tumor. Or something cute, like a mole. Man this ain't gonna end up short... I need a minute.
September 1, 2013 10:33 pm Hey @Sitara119, it's been fun. I don't know if you remember our early encounters, but we really moved away from them and really started getting on. Just wanted to let you know that meant alot to me. I'll never forget that weekend where You, Me, and @APoetSomeday talked about Batman too much (but not Much too much). Good times.
September 1, 2013 11:32 am I agree about this being POTW. The first issue I found boring and uninteresting (Don't ask why, I'm not sure myself), the second issue was a huge improvement (and also POTW if I recall correctly) and really enjoyable. This issue was fantastic, emotional in a way I don't see all that often. I like how the E2 Superman always knows E2 Batman has the best intentions at heart. Kryptonite missiles? Ok Bruce, what's up with that? It was kinda odd how little we saw of the 2 Batmans but I guess that was last issues topic. The only thing that worries me about this series is how they'll make it fit with JL and the rest. How will EP Superman and Batman not remember any of this when it's over? And are Richard Donnor, Brian Singer, and Grant Morrison idiots now?
September 1, 2013 8:55 am I'm actually looking forward to Forever Evil. I wasn't until I read the last part of Trinity War. The only thing that bothers me is the $3.99 price and if the Crime Syndicate isn't a big part of it I'll be let down.
August 31, 2013 1:45 pm @Nightwing97, dude, every book written by Barney Stinson needs to be "read" by him. Even "Bro On the Go". And H.Jon Benjaman needs to do an audio reading of "How to Archer". Thanks for that link, pretty good impersonation of Hamill. I have to wonder if a non-book version of that was made and shown to everyone like "TDK" if it wouldn't blow their minds completely. While Alan Moore sits in his flat kicking himself for writing the thing. Man, that animation's not bad either. "Everything anybody ever valued or struggled for is all a monstrous joke." Brilliant.
August 30, 2013 9:24 pm @RedBaron504, "Well, I believe all marriage is wrong". One of my favorite quotes from the Boondocks, and one I plan to refer to in the future alot.
August 30, 2013 9:10 pm Fun article. I kinda prefer the idea of the Justice Lords more but the Crime Syndicate can be cool too. I watched "Crisis on Two Earths" recently and found it enjoyable, with the CS being a good challenge to the JL. It's interesting to me that Superwoman and Owlman dated in that (but apparently were hiding it from Ultraman) while in JL/JLU Batman and WW dated. And now Superman and WW are together, I think that's gonna lead to something down the road. What about an article about the evil trio of Legion Super Heroes? Lightening Lord, Cosmic King, and Saturn Queen I think? I've seen them pop up a few times but don't know much about them.
