August 8, 2013 6:39 pm Just read issue #1 today and I'm fully in for the next 5 issues. I really hope this gets turned into an ongoing.
August 6, 2013 9:41 am I agree with the article for the most part. My question is, why does ifanboy insist on trying to alienate parts of their audience. Just because people want to be the "cool geeks" doesn't mean that everyone that comes here is. It also doesn't mean that it's ifanboys job to tell people what you think is wrong with them. Can we go back to just Josh, Ron and Connor talking about comics?
May 8, 2013 6:48 pm While I agree that FCBD can be a letdown to some people because of how excited they get, I tend to really love FCBD. Would I have bought 2 Archie comics today if I hadn't read the Archie offering on Saturday? No. Would I have ordered Volume 1 of Prince Valiant from Fantagraphcis if not for Saturday's event? No. That's what the day does for me. Introduces me to stuff I wouldn't give a chance otherwise. Also, if you didn't read The Strangers from FCBD, do it! Very good stuff.
April 30, 2013 5:23 pm Every time someone mentions Fell, it really bums me out. Just re-read all the issues the other day. I need RESOLUTION! I also really need to know if PRETTY BABY MACHINE kill Al Capone.

April 4, 2013 9:25 am Even with my stack as big as it is, I tend to re-read a lot. Recently, I did re-read all of Preacher and it was well worth it. I also recently re-read the Essex County trilogy and the first 8 issues of Fell. Fell was the toughest. I went into it knowing that I was going to re-read a cliffhanger of sorts that I will probably never get resolution to. But, it was worth it also, just to see what I loved about the series so much when it was "coming out."
February 8, 2013 6:51 pm That Hellboy sketch is incredible. Breaking into a border like that is one of my favorite things in sketches. Kristian Donaldson did an amazing sketch for me a couple years back of Matty Roth where the top of the border is the NYC skyline and the bottom has his press pass coming out of it.
January 10, 2013 5:55 am This is amazing news. I miss TRS like crazy, but I'm down with this. I remember Dan singing Y: The Last Man's praises all the way back in the Geekdrome days.
December 21, 2012 6:23 pm There are very few books that I really want to own multiple formats. Digital isn't something I'm worried about, but with a book like The Escapists, I worked really hard to pick up all the issues and then bought the trade. Thats probably one of 3 or 4 books that I own in multiple formats. Those are also the only things that I care about having the issues. I sell most of my comics to buy more comics, so most single issues don't really bother me to get rid of.
December 13, 2012 11:04 am Maybe the problem then is that I have only read the first 3 issues. I enjoyed the story, it just felt like it was bogging me down and was a bit confusing at times. I'll have to grab the first trade when it comes. I also love Kristian Donaldson's art. He's from Dallas, so I talk to him at every convention I go to here in Texas. Awesome guy and great artist. He has improved so much with The Massive. His stuff for DMZ, Supermarket and 99 Days all felt a bit static, but he is killing it on The Massive. I think the thing that also got me about the book is how different the series was from the 3 prequel stories in DHP. I really liked those and then it felt like the first 3 issues changed tone completely. Definitely excited to give it another chance though.
