November 21, 2018 4:55 pm Regarding Stan, I met him around 2010 when he spoke to a group of creatives when I worked for Target and he was great. Didn't seem like someone being paid to be there and really engaging in conversations. It was pretty rad. At the time my favorite crossover was Civil War (before crossovers got beat to dust and endlessly repeated). I asked him if there'd been any stories he'd wished he'd come up with and that was his answer. He didn't know the name of it though. He said "There's a story where the heroes all disagree on ideology or something and end up fighting each other. I thought that was a really fun idea." Like you guys said, his charm and energy and joy were ever present and infectious.
November 18, 2015 4:18 pm I'm with you. Superman: American Alien would totally have been my pick of the week. I felt like its one of the only takes on early Superman that really looks at what it would have been like for Jonathan and Martha going through what, let's admit, would be a legitimately frightening experience. Plus Nick Dragotta's art was superb.
November 18, 2015 4:15 pm I actually flipped through this book, initially bored, but then when I cued to the end I reread it and it was definitely one of the best books of the week. Tom King is really killing it lately.
November 11, 2015 7:21 pm I read Herc #1 too! I really liked it, though I'm hoping for a little bit of the humor of Incredible Hercules. I know this book is going for redemption/something different but Herc's sense of humor has always been my draw to the character.
November 11, 2015 7:19 pm 10 years! 10 YEEEEEARS!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWOnBWxNfYM Way to go guys. I have been listening since 08/09? Somewhere in there. You guys have helped me take a more critical look at my favorite medium and I really appreciate that. Also, your weekly review list totally dictates what I read first and has pushed me to read a lot of books I wouldn't otherwise have picked up. Congratulations and here's to another 10 (cue collective shudder from each of you)
July 14, 2015 3:44 pm Yeah, to be honest while all the Secret Wars books 'technically' tie in with the overall story the majority don't do much more than reference Doom once or twice. They're generally all their own, basically, elseworld stories. I think that works a lot better than most of the forced tie ins of past events. How annoying was it when a Daredevil, Spider-man, or X-factor ongoing story had to be interrupted by a single issue of the Skrull invasion or the Everyone Has a Hammer story? Each story can completely be read on it's own as a cool possible world. Thus Carol Corps AND Carol in A-Force AND Sheriff Carol in Age of Apocalypse AND Carol in Civil War (as example). I'm much more excited for the variety of stories that we're getting than any concern over continuity.
July 2, 2015 6:38 pm I'm with you. I haven't seen a lot of Infinity Gauntlet love but that book is outstanding. I'd read a whole series with that family for sure. The whole dynamic of the warrior Mom who left and came back vs the non-powered Dad who had to stay behind and survive alone is something we've not really seen.
June 24, 2015 7:19 pm Also Midnighter. The entire new 52 run of "Stormwatch/The Authority" has been terrible. This book actually felt closer to what they used to be, it's just disappointing that it's ONLY Midnighter, but still better than nothing.
September 9, 2014 2:26 pm Brian2Staples: Moon Knight by Brian Wood and Greg Smallwood (there's gotta be a pun in there) is really good. It still has the feel and atmosphere of the Ellis run though it looks like it might do more than just stand alones going forward. Absolutely still worth reading.
September 9, 2014 2:23 pm @Scarlet-Batman: Completely agree that this is one of the best stand alone issues I've read in years. Really excellent use of the medium and what can be done with it and so much packed in to 20 odd pages! Even though I don't particularly care about a Dick/Helena relationship it was amazing the depth Seely and King were able to give them considering it's basically the 3rd issue of the series.
