    August 22, 2013 11:23 pm Wow, they learned nothing from the Green Lantern debacle. Let me break it down for the Hollywood suits. Ben Affleck is one of the most unlikeable working actors today. People don't just dislike him, they hate him. Why do you keep putting guys like him, and Ryan Reynolds, in big movies when they repel people? I have never gone from being so actively excited about a film to deciding I will never see it in so short a time. It's mind boggling that they would cast Affleck as Batman.
    May 23, 2013 10:32 pm Whedon can always call him the "The Whizzer." Put that on a Slurpee.
    March 4, 2013 1:40 pm Hard Time was a great book, too bad the second collection never came out. As for Cap and Falcom, I would have bought it if not for Sears' art. His character work has always made me nauseous.
    January 18, 2013 5:42 pm Wow, that's an exciting opportunity. Congratulations Ron. 20 years ago you told me you wanted to work for Entertainment Weekly. I think you're doing even better than you thought you would.
    January 4, 2013 5:56 pm Kickstarter presents a bit of conundrum. It's not as easy as it used to be to find a publisher who wants to fund original creator owned projects. Kickstarter offers an alternative, yes it's no better than pan handling but at least you can project manage your book. The problem with kickstarter is that when the project fails you've proven that there is no market for your book and the publishers were right to ignore you in the first place. The groveling aspects and the impending public embarrassment of having a failed project have kept me from attempting a kickstarter campaign. I'm hopeful that digital platforms can fill the gap between material not commercial enough to recoup a printing bill and material that needs charity.
    November 21, 2012 9:56 pm Not the first time they've relaunched Spider-Man with someone else under the mask. But I'm willing to be this trumps Howard Mackie's run and the late Mattie Franklin's padded suit Spider-Man impersonation. My prediction, Pete comes back and kicks the snot out of doc ock. Maybe pete fights spider-man as doc ock reversing the classic perspective. Peter ultimately triumphs and returns to his body only to discover...dock ock was a better Peter Parker than he was. He quits being spidey for awhile to have a life and finds someone else to take over... Using the time machine at Horizon, introduced last year, Pete pulls his one time crossover buddy Spider-Man 2099 out of the time stream. With Miguel as spidey peter can be spider-man's tech guy like he has pretended to be. That is until villians from the 2099 verse come looking for miguel. Like Hypno Hustler 2099, Frogman 2099, ect. That or the new spidey is Harry Osborn.
    November 21, 2012 3:46 pm The early nineties penchant for swapping out the identities of its heroes led to some funny moments. The Spider-Man in the Marvel / DC crossover was Ben Reilly in costume and dialogue but Peter Parker unmasked. Reilly doesn't recognize the Joker who recognizes him from their previous crossover and he works Peter's job at the Daily Bugle. It's a glorious 90's mess. The fun bit about the Spawn / Batman crossover was the batarang wound across Spawn's face was carried over into his regular continuity. And it seemed that Frank was writing the Dark Knight Returns Batman. Great article, it really took me back. That Cap / Batman was a high water mark of the era. Great book.
    November 9, 2012 12:01 am I feel awful. I understand the realities of publishing and what not but this is a major loss for adult readers, which I believe the majority of comic buyers are. I've been buying this book monthly for over a decade and have loved almost every run (except for that year after Carey left; hideous). The way the two big have remolded their lines in the past few years have insured their will be no envelope pushing. Hellblazer was a classy book. A tough book with a complicated protagonist. I was always impressed and shocked with what they could do with him. An all ages Hellblazer Jr makes me think bad taste is winning.
    November 2, 2012 1:27 pm The early X-Factor issues showcased a totally douchey Scott Summers. He forgets to mention to Jean he married and started a family during her perceived death. A lot of scenes with his wife at home in Alaska with their child (Cable) crying and wondering why her husband won't come home.
